The supreme god Amma made the whole Universe within a grain of po. This grain was located inside the "Egg of the World", it spun and scattered the particles of matter in a sonorous and luminous motion, remaining, however, inaudible and invisible.
Amma placed his Word in the Po, thus making it the 'Image of the creator' and 'the Womb of Amma' (The Centre of the Universe, A Black Hole).
Amma placed seven 'Words' in the po, which began to vibrate strongly within the seed. The spiraling vibrations caused four clavicles (The Four Powers, Earth, Wind, Fire and Air) to grow forth from the po. (This is one of the many references to String Theory).
Suddenly, the Po burst forth, and eight new seeds were created. Amma planted these seeds in his egg near the clavicles of the Po. With these eight seeds, Amma intended to create eight celestial beings - four male and four female (The Egyptian Neter). The Dogon called these beings the Nommo Anagonno, 'The Word that Became the Fish-Man'.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vishnu (About Vishnu)
The Nommo are the first beings created by Amma, and they are amphibious celestial creatures. These eight beings were going to be Amma's perfect creation. The four fish-twins were going to make each other fertile, complete, and blessed with heavenly happiness and fulfillment.
However, one of the male twins - Ogo (the Egyptian Set) - grew impatient. Instead of awaiting patiently the completion of the Amma's work, he hurriedly made an "Ark" and rushed into space, wishing "to look at the world". After several voyages, Ogo landed on the Earth and turned into the pale fox or fennec or Jackal, named Yurugu.
To purify the Universe, Amma decided to sacrifice one of the completed Nommo twins - Nommo Semi. Nommo Semi was composed of both a male and female Nommo Anagonno, and was a complete and perfect Being onto itself.
Amma lifted Nommo Semi out of the celestial waters and tied the androgynous fish to the Kilena (Mother of charcoal) tree. In one swift cut, Amma sliced the umbilical cord and genitals of Nommo Semi. The sacrificed Nommo's blood & life force - Nyama - emptied from its naval and groin. Semi died a suffering and painful death.
One day called Taba Tolo - the reuniting of the two placentas - will occur. At that day a strong purifying stream of Nyama will pour down on the Sun and Earth from Sirius. This stream will wash away the corrupt order of Ogo and immortalize the sons and daughters of the Nommo.
Even one of their celestial beings from their creation stories is described as being impatient.But I guess this is a little thin for now so I will get some more info,
