Myths, Legends and Folklore of China
How victims of drowning became ghosts (kuei) until another unfortunate person drowned at the same place (an event that the kuei might therefore initiate); how yin and yang were separated from the egg of chaos by the birth of Phu-hu who, while the universe expanded, filled the space between the earth (yin) and the sky (yang) until he died and his flesh became soil, his tears rivers and his breath wind; how Monkey stole Taoist master Lao Chun's immortality pills which, as he had already eaten the peaches of immortality, made Monkey totally invulnerable to either age or violence; how "swords", made from coins strung together, protected babies from thou-tzu-kuei, the embittered ghosts of childless women (the smoke from burning slippers provided similar protection); how ageing, renegade foxes could avoid death by transforming themselves into attractive men and women, so as to seduce young people and drain them of their life-force; how the smiling god of longevity, Shou-lao, records the time of a person's natural death as soon as that person is born; and how the souls of people eaten by tigers were enslaved by the big cats until until their ghosts (kuei) had lured someone else to a similar fate, are among the myths, legends and folktales of China.
