In the beginning He created the astral plane with a mere quantum spark known as the Great Expansion. During the early expansion of the astral plane, quantum fluctuations within the dense cosmic void created spontaneous “gateways” that triggered further expansions within the astral mists. The Outer Planes were expanded first, which gave rise to the creation of the Light and the Darkness, omnipotent beings of cosmic consciousness. As the astral cooled, the various Inner Planes expanded into the various elemental, paramental and energy planes and they began to interact with each other in incalculable ways, giving rise to the material universe (the Prime Material). The limit of the Elder God’s creation is said to be infinite, an infinite number of worlds and possibilities created during the Great Expansion, some easier to travel to than others. The Great Expansion continues to this very day, creating new unknown pocket dimensions and planes of existence.
When the first of the Outer Planes were first created during the Great Expansion, two omnipotent consciousness’s were formed known as the Light and the Darkness. While the Light is dominant on the Upper Planes and the Darkness in control of the Lower Planes they can and do exist everywhere, though their presence is diminished within the Inner Planes and the material universe.
