Well before existence, there was a god called Nareau. He just floated all by himself sleeping on nothing.
As he did so, he heard a voice calling him, "Nareau! Why are you doing that?" Quite amazed, he opened his eyes to see who was calling him. He saw nothing so he closed his eyes again.
A while later, the same voice called Nareau for the second time, "Nareau, aren't you bored doing nothing but sleeping?" Again Nareau looked around to see who made the sound. None could he only see therefore he went back to sleep.
The voice called out for the third time, "Nareau, aren't you going to do something?" Nareau finally stood up and shook his whole body to get fully conscious.
He thought carefully and then exclaimed, "Dear me! So young! I thought someone was calling but the voice really came from me!"
He was no longer sleepy as he was now fully awoke and mature. He kept on thinking until his head was full of thoughts.
