Story with title:
This is a Chinese folklore version of how Earth and man were created.
The universe began with a cosmic hen's egg. The inside of this perfect egg contained the yin and yang. They represented all of the opposites, woman and man, good and evil, light and dark, happiness and sadness, and cold and heat. Inside of the yin and yang was the great creator, Phan-Ku. When the time was right Phan-Ku hatched from the egg. When he hatched he was a giant and was still growing ten feet a day and would live to be 18,000 years old. He had horns and two walrus like teeth. He was orange and in each powerful hand were a chisel and hammer in which he would carve the world and delicate clouds.
Phan-Ku first went to carving out the valleys and mountains, and than separated the light from the dark and land from the sea. He called the pure heavenly sky yin and the heavy darkness yang. After he died his eyes became the sun and the moon, his breath the wind, and even though he was dead his voice became the thunder, his sweat the rain. Then, his hair became the fertile land of trees and plants, the rain forest. His flesh became the earth. Then the worms that ate his body became people. In order for his creation to be complete he had to die.
