Well, you don't seem to accept "because it's magic". "Because it's a god" also doesn't seem to fly (as it were). Wadda you want? Repulsor Rays? Radium Engines? The Seventeenth Element?

I want a good myth as to why it flies, not a physics theory or a technological conundrum.

I thought that my:
"The air keeps the sky and the earth apart from each other. Chaos is an afront to all three; air daimones from miles around flock to repel the hideous creature and it uses their attempts at repulsion by sort of slithering over the top of them. Irony then because this is the only reason it can fly at all. I was about to give explanation as to how it works in Lunar lands but, then, they don't let it go there, do they?"

was a good first attempt and had hoped for competing (and better written) passages.
