Excerpt from the Mundaka Upanishad 1.1.6-8
6. That which is invisible, ungraspable, without family, without caste (a-varna)
Without sight or hearing is It, without hand or foot,
Eternal, all-pervading, omnipresent, exceedingly subtle;
That is the Imperishable, which the wise perceive as the source of beings.
7.As a spider emits and draws in [its thread],
As herbs arise on the earth,
As the hairs of the head and body from a living person,
So from the Imperishable arises everything here.
8. By austerity (tapas) Brahma becomes built up.
From that, food is produced;
From food life-breath, mind, truth
The worlds', immortality tooin works
Note in the above, Brahma is "built up" from the Imperishable.
