Aurbis is the name given to the chaos, or totality, from which the cosmos was formed by Anu and Padomay. For all intents and purposes, it is the universe, encompassing the Void, Oblivion, the Lands of Aetherius, Mundus and the Outer Realms. The structure of the Aurbis is known as the Wheel - Mundus is the hub, the empty spaces within it are the planes of Oblivion, the emptiness beyond it is the Void, and the spokes are the realms of Aetherius.[OOG 1]
