How The World Was Created
Have you ever wondered from where did the mythical creatures and gods you so hear about and see in movies and pictures come from? Greek mythology is one of the richest sources of imagination and entertainment for pandora jewlery the modern society, and I can't help but be fascinated by all the myths and legends that originated from Greek mythology.
They were the first primordial gods: Chaos, Gaia, Tartarus and Eros. These four deities (deathless gods and forces of creation) are often depicted as a realm or a place. They are sometimes pictured or mentioned in their personified forms.
The first deity pandora charms sale online to ever exist was Chaos. Chaos was the nothing that existed before everything. It was the emptiness, the void, a state of conflict or disorder. It was the genderless form from whence everything else was born.
After Chaos, came Gaia (Earth), then Tartarus (Underworld) and finally Eros (Procreation). Gaia was pandora rings the female personification of the Earth, which would later become the foundation for all the other gods and the mortals. Tartarus was the stormy space beneath the Earth, a bottomless abyss. And Eros represented the love of sexual reproduction and was the fairest of the four deathless gods.
These four primordial gods were only the beginning. Chaos gave birth to Erebus (Darkness) the male personification of darkness and the space between Tartarus and Gaia, and Nyx (Night) the goddess of the night. Erebus and Nyx procreated to give birth to Aether (Brightness) the bright upper atmosphere of the gods, and Hemera (Day) the goddess of the day. Uranus and Pontus were male gods, with whom Gaia would eventually mate to give birth to a whole new number different pandora charms of different beings and personifications.
The order in which the Primordial Gods were born is debatable. Some sources state that from the initial state of disorder that was Chaos, eventually Love (Eros) appeared. Chaos, being poetically female in this version, with Love, gives birth to Gaia and the following primordial deities.
These were the primordial forces before the generations. You can say they were always there, but that at some point materialized, started a chain of events that led to creation and gave form to the first generations of gods. Uranus, as the Heaven and protector of Gaia, was the ruler of the Cosmos at this point.
Primordial Greek gods:

Hemere (Day), daughter of Erebus and Nyx
Uranus (Heaven), born from Gaia
The Ourea (Mountains), born from Gaia

The First GenerationFirst PantheonEvery night Uranus would descend to Earth, covering her on all sides, and mate with Gaia. This led to the birth of many children, children that Uranus didn't want.
They were known for their stubbornness, strength, might and craftmanship. The cyclops were responsible for the craft of many of the mythical weapons from Greek mythology, including Zeus' thunderbolts.
The three Hekatonchires were ferocious and dangerous powerful giants with one hundred arms and fifty heads each! Uranus hated them at the first sight and was fearful that these powerful creatures would grow up and eventually overthrow him as the only ruler of the Cosmos.
