    In the beginning, there was nothing, until the awakening of the great being. The great being was everything. Its body was composed of fire and water, earth and air.

    The great being opened its mouth and from the fire of its body was born the sky. The sun lit the nothingness that surrounded the great being, while the moon and stars shone with their own brilliance. The sky spoke to the being, their many voices asking for a purpose.

    So the great being took the stone and dirt that composed its body and formed it into the earth. The sky rejoiced at its purpose, to light and care for the earth. The earth then called out to the great being, their many voices of stone and dirt asking for a purpose.

    So the great being took the water that composed its body and created lakes, rivers, and oceans. The earth was joyous at its purpose to cup the water of the world, and the sky loved to play with the water, admiring their reflections. The water then called out to the being, their many voices asking for a purpose.

    So the great being took that air that composed its body and created the winds and clouds. The water admired their purpose to create storms to shape the earth. The earth loved to play with the wind, placing themselves in the way to be carved out by the grains of sand the gusts picked up. The sky loved the feel of the winds upon their surfaces and stood against the flow to stoke their lights. The winds then called out to the being, their many voices asking for a purpose.

    So the great being grasped at themself, but their body was gone, given to the sky, earth, water, and wind. All that remained was the life of the great being. And so the great being took its life and imbued it into the world. Plants arose from the earth. Animals came from the water. Fire came from the sky. And supporting it all were the winds, for without wind all life would die.

    So the great being died, separating itself into the many pieces that composed life. The winds reveled in their purpose, each swearing to not let the sacrifice of the great being to be in vain. The sky, earth, and water ignored the death of the great being, instead delighting in playing in this new world they had been given.
