In this paper, we present the natural extension of the Rogers- Ramanujan continued fraction to the nonterminating very well-poised basic hypergeometric function 8Ø7. In a letter to Hardy, Ramanujan indicated that he possessed a four variable generalization. Our generalization has seven variables and is, perhaps, all one can expect from this method.
