World Serpent before time existed or maybe shortly afterwards.He was given to meditating. Then he became Much Given to Meditating and felt that in return meditating owed him much in return and he meditated himself into a World Turtle called BEDAWANG, plus another couple of serpents and a Black Stone Lid to go over an Underworld.
This triggered off Underworld activity in the form of a Goddess called SETESUYARA and a God BATARA-KALA. They didn't like the dark too much and lifted the lid a bit which caused earth and light to appear which in turn protected themselves with a layer of water and several skies. You know how it is with skies and limits — they are always prone to Godly Developments.
In no time at all there was sun, moon, stars, planets, paradise projects and high rise heavens. Then skies open and more water poured down and seas were soon seen as sightseers materialized.
