But wait.  If the mud's only baker existed in this former city, the 
"lawn ornaments" would have nothing to eat.  Their starvation 
and death would soon follow.  At this point the administrator would 
step in (after recovering from a severe fit of hysteric laughter) and

Nature comprehends the visible and invisible Creatures of the Whole 
universe. What we call Nature especially, is the universal fire or 
Anima Mundi, filling the whole system of the Universe, and therefore
is a Universal Agent, omnipresent, and endowed with an unerring instinct,
and manifests itself in fire and Light. It is the First creature of 
Divine Omnipotence.
