In the darkness of the Northern Ocean, there is a fish named K'un. The K'un is so big that no one knows how many thousands of tricents (three hundred paces) its body extends... A question put by t'ang, the first emperor of the shang dynasty, to his wise minister Chi...
T'ang asked, "Do up, down, and the four directions have a limit?"
"Beyond their limitlessness there is another limitlessness.”
