In Chinese myth, Chaos is not a figure of Evil (as in most western mythology) but is instead full of potential, benevolent if somewhat eerie, the ultimate force and source of all creation, of the myriad things like seeds in a gourd or the chopped up goodies in a won-ton, or the water in a spillover-vessel which flows out, letting each stream find its own channel, fertilising the earth, bringing everything into becoming.
