I am he who came into being in the form of the god Ḫ-P-R Ré, and I am the creator of that which came into being, that is to say, I am the creator of everything which came into being. Now the things which I created, and which came forth out of my mouth after that I had come into being myself were exceedingly many. Heaven had not come into being, the earth did not exist, and the children of the earth, and the creeping things had not been made at that time. I myself raised them up from out of Nûn, from a state of helpless inertness.
I found no place whereon I could stand. I worked a charm upon my own heart. I laid the foundation of things by Tme, and I made everything which had form. I was then one by myself, for I had not emitted from myself the god Shôu, and I had not spit out from myself the goddess Teféne; and there existed no other who could work with me. I laid the foundations of things in my own heart, and there came into being multitudes of created things, which came into being from the created things which were born from the created things which arose from what they brought forth.
I had union with my closed hand, and I embraced my shadow as a wife, and I poured seed into my own mouth.
