Then spoke NEPELLE, "Let us catch the Goddess first, and then we shall decide what we want, for what is the use of arguing over something that we have not yet achieved, and the clan agreed that NEPELLE was right.
"That is good", called the Goddess, "you have developed a logic and this will aid you in your strivings."
And so it was that the clan hunted and tried to catch the Goddess, but she was elusive and full of strategies.
The clan began to realise that it was impossible to catch the Goddess, unless they also could work out some kind of strategy or devise some means of trapping her, thus they began to seek ideas and invent different kinds of traps, and their minds began to become more fertile.
Time went on, but whatever the clan devised, the Goddess always outwitted them and eluded capture, until on day when their minds had increased a great deal, NEPELLE had an idea and called the clan together. Thus spoke NEPELLE, "Have we not found out, that necessity is the force that motivates us towards invention, thus has not one of our activities become the creating of things? Our minds have devised many inventions, and all of these are good and will serve us in many ways should we travel through the dimensions of the universe, but never the less, in catching the Goddess, these things have prov ed to be of little use, we must try to reason how her mind works and trap her by the elements of her own mind."
"I do not understand what you mean?" said BAIAME, "Would you please explain to us your reasoning?" NEPELLE replied, "The Goddess has great wisdom, but this great wisdom was only accumulated through her great curiosity, is this not so? So we will trap her through her curiosity", and NEPELLE outlined his plan to the clan, and the clan agreed that NEPELLE had made a great discovery.
And so it was the next day, when the Goddess appeared shaking her sistrum, the clan ignored her, and looking in another direction, KARORA and his sons pointed at something and shouted, "There it goes, lets catch it."
The clan went chasing off in another direction to the Goddess, but NEPELLE stood where he was and called to them, "Look, there is the Goddess standing there", but the clan called back, "Never mind her, come help us catch this thing." NEPELLE went running off with the rest of the clan.
The Goddess YAHI was greatly bewildered, and followed at a distance trying hard to see what i was the clan was chasing, but she could not see anything and this puzzled her greatly.
Suddenly the clan dived upon something, with a triumphant shout and seemed to be struggling with something on the ground. The Goddess drew nearer and shook her sistrum as hard as she could, but the clansmen barely gave her a glance and continued with their struggle with whatever it was that was under them. This was too much for the Goddess. What was it that was more important than catching her?, so walking over she tried hard to peer under the pile of bodies to see what it was they had caught.
But the Goddess could see nothing and her curiosity began to really grip her, so walking right over to the clansmen, she began trying to push them aside, saying, "What is it that you have caught?"
