The Sundering of the Void
In the before-time, there was only The Void. The Void was all, and the Void was God. Today we call it Todra, the All-God, from which all things came to be, but in the beginning it was infinite, lacking matter and form. Todra was aware that it had always existed as the void, and that it would always exist as the void, yet Todra was dissatisfied. Todra was all that existed, and Todra was all it knew, yet it wanted to know more. So Todra devised a plan: it would split itself into another type of void, the exact opposite of its current being, yet just as infinite, just as empty. Where Todra was a total saturation of pure energy, the new void would be vacuum, the total absence of energy. By splitting in this way, Todra would become something new, and could therefore expand its knowledge. Thus Todra split into two equal and opposite beings: one which remained Todra, the other which we know as Nifra. This split is known as The Sundering of the Void, from which the two halves of Todra gained form and definition. Todra and Nifra are often symbolized as day and night, light and dark, life and death, future and past, all references to the fullness and absence of the two earliest gods. Following the Sundering, Todra and Nifra rejoined in The Great Union, from which the universe began.
