I am searching for the "God of Chaos?" I was told that was who he was, but he never gave me a name. All I know of him is he has long straight silver hair.

Any ideas?

I don't imagine a 'God of Chaos' would have one particular form, so he probably came to you in a form that you would feel comfortable with or would be inspired by in some fashion.

Long, straight silver hair could mean a number of things. Straight hair might represent a straight forward attitude, or a 'smooth' understanding of universal and taboo principles. Silver is a very powerful color and metal and has been for ages. It is the color associated with the moon, so maybe you should contact him on the next full moon or he is a representation of the moons power and ancient mysteries.

Your interpretations and intuition should be your primary tool kit, with a little traveling through myths, legends and scriptures.

"Chaos" is a Greek word, meaning emptiness. "Tarakhe" was the word for "disorder" until Hesiod used the term chaos for that about 700 B.C.

But basically, I'm guessing it's one of the Greek protogenoi.

There are trickster deities in every culture. The unverified personal gnosis of Loki from Norse mythology has it that he's ginger, but the mythos says he's a shapeshifter. The Biblical Lucifer came from the Latin "lux" and "ferre" meaning "bringer of light" and while most unverified personal gnosis or even fictional portrayals make him golden blond, I wouldn't be surprised if he were a little brighter than that to some people's perception. The Biblical description of angels concentrate more on their blinding white laundry, though.

It could also be someone that's not in mythology.

Out of curiosity, can a God of Chaos even maintain its existence? 

Wouldn't it just tear itself apart quickly, since it isn't able to maintain order not even in itself?

Wouldn't be much of a God of Chaos if it existence had order to it.

Like EllyEve said chaos is from the Greek khaos meaning 'void, empty, or abyss' so technically the God of Chaos would be the abysmal dragons such as Tiamat, Leviathan, Typhon, etc, and not a sporadic emanation of divine light that has no cohesion. Chaos is the abtract pool of all potential, according to Greek mythology and Chaos Magicians, usually identified as the dragon for its mystery, fear and mystic attributes.

You do realized you described a mystical being, and then identified it with a mystical being.

However, I agree that it would be void..after all a God of Chaos cannot even sustain itself or anything so, therefore it doesn't exist, for it cannot exist. It can't even be worshiped or used. Its literally as useful as an empty void of space.

A month and a half, and nobody links Sephiroth? I'm not sure whether to say "Shame on you all" or "Good job on not fanwhoring, everyone!" :P

Mastery does not occur when you've performed a feat once or twice. Instead, it comes after years of training, when you realize that you no longer notice when you're performing a feat which used to require so much effort. Even walking takes years of training for a human: why not everything else?

You do realize that Mindbender may have been using a different (read: OLD) definition of "chaos"? He made a pretty good description in his post.

If chaos means violence, randomness and nihilism (which is a better, though slightly different, definition for the etymological root of chaos) as we know today, you could be right. On the other hand, I read somewhere and it makes sense, that demons are collections of suffering and angry souls formed as one conscious, thus 'Satan' would be a God of Chaos since demons hardly take orders from anyone or anything. The same applies to any violent, rebellious and blood thirsty deity, but chaos translated as void gives rise to the notion of potential, such as found in Daoist and Hindu cosmogony also similar to the Qabalistic idea of Ain/Soph/Aur.

The Greeks antropomorphised Chaos as the father of Erebus (Darkness) and Nyx (Night) who are the parents of Somnus (Sleep), Ceres (Violent Justice), Nemesis (Destroyer of Enemies), Chiron (Ferryman), Oneriaes (Dreams) among others. This is Chaos with a form and function- a resevoir and generator of potential that gives rise to new potential.

@Shadowx089: Chaos is just an order that we cannot comprehend ;-)

Of possible note, Discordians worship the greek goddess of chaos and discord, Eris. In Latin her name is Discordia.

And they believe that order is just chaos that we can understand. ;)

Discordianism isn't so much about understandable chaos but a mockery of religious and initiatory schools through the archetype of Eris and Absolute Truths such as avoid of eating the Bun on a Friday. Only the hot-dog shall be partaken of... FNORD!
