Ginnungagap ("yawning abyss") was the vast, primordial void that existed prior to the creation of the manifest universe.[citation needed]

In the northern part of Ginnungagap lay the intense cold of Niffleheim, and to the southern part lay the equally intense heat of Muspelheim. The cosmogonic process began when the effulgence of the two met in the middle of Ginnungagap.[citation needed]
