Primordial reality?

I was wondering how various religious traditions address, or don’t address, the concept of primordial reality. The question of ‘what came before’ the ordered world we know now is one that people have been trying to answer for a rather long time.

The Greek Theogony posits the existence of a singular, primordial diety called Chaos; the the Babylonians, the first Gods were Tiamat and Abzu; the Norse may have believed in Ginnungagap, a great primordial void at the dawn of time.

Many such stories and myths exist across the world; what does your tradition say about the state of the universe before the creation of the current world?
