Etymology of Chaos

Chaos comes from the Greek word Khaos, meaning “Gaping Void.” In ancient times chaos was often considered as being void of anything, which is funny because in the present day, we consider chaos being too much activity. For example, compared to Morris, Connecticut, many people would consider New York City chaotic, but compared to the ancient definition, Morris would be much more chaotic than New York City.
