"Hesiod's primordial Chaos"

 Hesiod was an Ancient Greek poet who was alive sometime between 650 and 750 B.C., although scholars argue over whether he predates Homer, who is thought to have been active around 850 B.C. One of the works attributed to Hesiod is the Theogony, which puts forward an idea of the beginning of the world (and of the gods), starting with the three forces of Chaos, Gaia and Eros. In the poem, the primal state of the universe is Chaos, a divine void, a primordial state from which everything came into existence.
