-->-- ''WebComic/EightBitTheater''''WebComic/EightBitTheater'' -> After yet another hundred years Eblis, whose doom is assured, came to worship Adam as was his custom and said: "O my Lord and my Advancer and my Preceptor in Good and Evil, whom hast thou ever beheld in all thy world, wiser and more excellent than thyself?" Adam said: "I have never seen such an one." Eblis asked: "Hast thou ever conceived of such an one?" Adam answered: "Except in dreams I have never conceived of such an one." Eblis then answered: "Disregard dreams. They proceed from superfluity of meat. Stretch out thy hand upon the world which thou hast made and take possession." So Adam took possession of the mountains which he had levelled and of the rivers which he had diverted and of the upper and lower Fires which he had made to speak and to work for him, and he named them as possessions for himself and his children for ever. After this, Eblis asked: "O, my Upholder and Crown of my Belief, who has given thee these profitable things?" Adam said: "By my Hand and my Head, I alone have given myself these things." Eblis said: "Praise we the Giver!" So, then, [[{{Narcissist}} Adam praised himself in a loud voice, and built an Altar and a Mirror behind the Altar; and he ceased not to adore himself in the Mirror, and to extol himself daily before the Altar, by the name and under the attributes of the Almighty]]. -->-- ''The Enemies to Each Other'', from ''Debits and Credits'' by Creator/RudyardKipling ----
