In which, Mephistopheles makes a bet with God: that he can defect God’s favourite human being Faust, who is striving to learn everything that can be known, away from righteous pursuits. Meanwhile Faust, despairing at the vanity of learning, turns to magic for the showering of infinite knowledge.  Frustrated, he ponders suicide. He goes for a walk with his assistant Wagner and is followed home by a stray dog who transforms into the devil (Mephistopheles). Faust makes an arrangement with the devil: the devil will do everything that Faust wants while he is here on Earth, and in exchange Faust will serve the devil in Hell.
