In Greek mythology, the primordial deities, are the first gods and goddesses born from the void of Chaos. Hesiod’s first (after Chaos) are Gaia, Tartarus, Eros, Erebus, Hemera and Nyx. The primordial deities Gaia and Uranus give birth to the Titans, and the Cyclopes. The Titans Cronus and Rhea give birth to Zeus, Poseidon, Hades, Hestia, Hera and Demeter who overthrew the Titans. The warring of the gods ends with the reign of Zeus.
Hesiod’s Theogony (c. 700 BC) tells the story of the genesis of the gods. After invoking the Muses (II.1–116), he tells of the generation of the first four primordial deities:
“First Chaos came to be, but next… Earth… and dim Tartarus in the depth of the… Earth, and Eros…”

In astronomy and cosmology, baryonic dark matter is dark matter composed of baryons. Only a small proportion of the dark matter in the universe is likely to be baryonic.
As “dark matter”, baryonic dark matter is undetectable by its emitted radiation, but its presence can be inferred from gravitational effects on visible matter. This form of dark matter is composed of “baryons”, heavy subatomic particles such as protons and neutrons and combinations of these, including non-emitting ordinary atoms.
Baryonic dark matter may occur in non-luminous gas or in Massive Astrophysical Compact Halo Objects (MACHOs) – condensed objects such as black holes, neutron stars, white dwarfs, very faint stars, or non-luminous objects like planets and brown dwarfs.
The total amount of baryonic dark matter can be inferred from models of Big Bang nucleosynthesis, and observations of the cosmic microwave background. Both indicate that the amount of baryonic dark matter is much smaller than the total amount of dark matter.
