Electrical Question: How can I Install a Ceiling Fan without an Electrical Box?

I want to Install a Ceiling Fan in a Ceiling without a Electrical box. I have an extra 12×15 room in my home which will be turned into an office. In the room their are 3 plugs and 1 switch. There is not a ceiling fan electrical box. How do I pull power, neutral and ground to the fan electrical box from the wall outlets.

Thank you for your input it’s much appreciated as well as your very informative web site.
