IN THE BEGINNING, THE MOST ANCIENT OF THE GREEK GODDESSES, EURYNOME, THE GREAT GODDESS OF ALL THINGS, ROSE NAKED FROM THE CHAOS AND FOUND THERE WAS NOTHING, SO HER FIRST GREAT WORK WAS TO SEPARATE THE WATER FROM THE SKY AND LIGHT FROM DARKNESS. AND ONCE THIS HAD BEEN ACCOMPLISHED, SHE BEGAN TO DANCE ACROSS THE WAVES, THE BEAUTIFUL SENSUAL DANCE OF CREATION. AND AS SHE WILDLY DANCED TOWARDS THE SOUTH, SHE SET IN MOTION BEHIND HER TO THE NORTH A WIND THAT, LIKE CLAY, COULD BE CAUGHT IN HER HAND AND MOLDED INTO A LOVER, OPHION. AND AS SHE CONTINUED TO DANCE, WHIRLING FASTER AND FASTER, OPHION WATCHED AND WAS DRIVEN TO LUST. HE COILED HIMSELF AROUND HER ARMS AND HER LEGS, AND SHE THEN MATED WITH HIM, GIVING BIRTH TO THE UNIVERSAL EGG FROM WHICH LAND, PLANTS, ANIMALS, PLANETS, THE SUN AND THE MOON SPRANG.

IT WAS AT THIS POINT THAT THE GREAT MOTHER ASCENDED TO THE TOP OF MOUNT OLYMPUS TO WATCH OVER HER CHILDREN AS THEY BEGAN TO TAKE SHAPE. OPHION FOLLOWED HER, AND ALL WAS WELL UNTIL HE BEGAN BOASTING THAT HE, IN FACT, WAS THE CREATOR OF ALL THINGS. ENRAGED, EURYNOME KICKED OUT HIS TEETH AND CAST HIM OUT OF HEAVEN INTO THE DARK REGIONS OF THE EARTH. SHE THEN WENT ABOUT HER BUSINESS BY CREATING THE FIRST PEOPLE, THE PELASGIANS.
