World... or old legend modified by 

WORLD (noun)
1. the universe or all that exists; everything.
2. the earth, or a planetary body like it.
3. secular interests and affairs.
4. the earth, it’s countries and their inhabitants, all people.
5. the earth as known or in some political respect.

Some ancient beliefs that the world is born through the universe on the back of one or more enormous animals (such as a turtle in Native American creation myth), though these myths do not necessarily include an infinity aspect or multiple/endless layers of animals.

In Asian religious mythology, the Earth was born by three elephants
which stood on the back of a giant turtle, symbol of the primitive oceans. In Hindu myth, the tortoise Chukwa supports the elephant Maha-pudma, which in its turn supports the world. In Chinese myth the tortoise also supports the world, its four feet being the four corners of the earth.

Here is my modification of that old legends. World is all around us, around me. It’s my country and my beloved city.
So… it’s my world.

    ooooo…wonderfully done!
    The “legends” are fascinating, aren’t they.
    As one elderly lady said after a lecture: “Why, young man, it’s tortoises all the way down!”

    I wonder…
    where from the soul could emerge such metaphors of a sustain of the world..
    may be…the world neede a heavy sustaining to all that void that seems to around us..and it was more secure to beleive that it was one the top of the heaviest animals…and “dense” like…as elephants and tortoises….
    we are strange beings….
    and I love the depicting of the legengs you have heard, and met….
    it is warm and legendary and actual as well..
    It has grandeur and home like affectionl.
