Hesiod

Author of Theogony, one of the most important books on ancient Greek cosmogony. The work traces the descent of the manifested world from CHAOS. The higher gods were born of Gaia, chief of whom was Ouranos (Uranus), and with whom Gaia begat the Titans, which included Kronos. Zeus was one of those begotten by Kronos and Rheia.

Helena P. BLAVATSKY wrote that the ancient Greek deities were personifications of cosmic intelligences in their various stages of emanations. Thus, CHAOS is equivalent to the First LOGOS, Kronos to endless Duration, beyond time and space. Zeus is equivalent to the Third Logos, or the creative deity.
