Inside the egg was Yin and Yang, the two opposing forces of which the universe is made. One day the warring energies inside this egg cracked it apart. The heavier elements sank to form the earth and the lighter ones floated to form the sky. Between the earth and the sky was P'an-ku, the first being. He had two horns thrusting from his forehead and two tusks from his upper jaw. When he was happy the weather was fine, but if he grew troubled or angry it rained or there was a storm
