A joke cartoon depicting some cartoon-like alien "creator", called Nyarly, adding "chaos", in the form of "Entropy Hot Sauce", a spicy variety of "entropy", to the earth, at the start of the creation of the universe or solar system.

In terms, chaos (TR:186) (LH:10) (TL:196), from the Greek κενός, isopsephy value: 345, meaning "void" or "empty", numerically equivalent to the Greek word "delta" [1], refers to []

Overview

Egyptian model

In 3500BC, Egyptians conceptualized that the beginning was a dark (no sun) watery abyss, modeled on the conjecture that world originally was “all water”, i.e. the earth was completely flooded, based on the annual Nile Rive flood, which yearly was seen to submerge entire islands, 30 to 40 in water rise:

In 2600BC, Egyptians defined the beginning or start of “creation” via several different scenarios: Nun or Ogdoad, both mixed with Maat and Thoth (and parts of Ra, in some versions); as outlined below:

In this model, the Egyptian Nun or Ogdoad, the god personification of the beginning, as watery abyss, void, emptiness, chaos, or space, existed first, out of which land arose (god: Atum), out of the tip of which the sun god (god: Ra) was born, from which all the other gods were engendered, namely: air (god: Shu) and Tefnut (moisture); earth (god: Geb) and sky (god: Nut); then Osiris, Isis, Set, and Nephthys.

Greek model

In 750BC, Hesiod, in his Theogony, after studying in Egypt, presented a model of Greek cosmology, wherein the gods were generated from “chaos”, which basically was a rescript of the Egyptian void, vacuum, darkness aspects of the “Ogdoad” god family.

Showing "chaos" (value: 345) as the "one" thing at the start, at the tale end of which "Helios" (value: 318), the Greek sun god, is generated.[2]

In 520BC, Pythagoras renamed Hesiod’s “chaos” by the number-themed word “monad”.

In 300BC, Epicurus, unhappy with his teacher’s inability to explain the meaning of “chaos” to him, turned to the atomic theories of Democritus, wherein he found solace.
