Once, while Ulgen was away, his brother tricked a guardian dog·exactly as in the Buriat myth·and spat on the new humans, thus condemning them forever to the diseases and pains to which animals and humans are subject. A similar story to the Buriat one exists in Romania. According to that story, in the beginning, God sent Satan into the primeval depths to find soil with which to begin creating Earth. When Satan finally succeeded in his quest, God made a ball out of the soil and then fell asleep. Satan thought this would be a good time to steal the ball of earth, but every time he touched it, it grew until the waters were displaced.

The Tewa people came out into a „new world full of blinding light‰ and were terrified. But Spider Woman gently got them used to the new world. The emergence myth is clearly derived from the phenomenon of birth. The people gestate in various forms within Mother Earth, are usually watched over by what is, in effect, a midwife-goddess, and they struggle in stages to emerge from a hole in Mother Earth as „the people‰ in a place that then becomes the de facto world center for those people.
