1 湯問:
殷湯問於夏革曰:「古初有物乎?」夏革曰:「古初1无物,今惡得物?後之人將謂今之无物可乎?」殷湯曰:「然則物无先後乎?」夏革曰:「物之終始,初无極已。始或為終,終或為始,惡知其紀?然自物之外,自事之先,朕所不知也。」殷湯曰:「然則上下八方有極盡乎?」革曰:「不知也。」湯固問。革曰:「无則无極,有則有盡;朕何以知之?然无極之外,復无无極,无盡之中,復无无盡。无極復无无極,无盡復无无盡。朕以是知其无極无盡也,而不知其有極有盡也。」湯又問曰:「四海之外奚有?」革曰:「猶齊州也。」湯曰:「汝奚以實之?」革曰:「朕東行至營,人民猶是也。問營之東,復猶營也。西行至豳,人民猶是也。問豳之西,復猶豳也。朕以是知四海四荒四極之不異是也。故大小相含,无窮極也。含萬物者亦如含天地;含萬物也故不窮,含天地也故无極。?亦吾所不知也。然則天地亦物也。物有不足,故昔者女媧氏練五色石以補其闕;斷鼇之足以立四極。其後共工氏與顓頊爭為帝,怒而觸不周之山,折天柱,絕地維,故天傾西北,日月星辰就焉;地不滿東南,故百川水潦歸焉。」
