I think I remember reading something about anu and padomay. I have all the elder scrolls now so I can read up on as much as I can find in the in-game books.

This kinda reminds me of science and space where the planets were actually named after the gods like Jupiter, Neptune, and Venus. BTW what a Great cosmology of the elder scrolls.

it sounds logical, in fact, it also open the idea to think what would happen if the people of Nirn discovered magnuscentrism, like someone said here, if oblivion is basically outer space, then by that extends i could say that even the Dwemer could have discovered space flight (?)

what is padomay and anu?
Brotherhood-Paladin Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2014
Anu and Padomay are the two deities that are attributed to creating much of the Elder Scrolls universe. They are opposites with Padomay representing chaos and change while Anu is order and stasis. They supposedly fought each other and with their spilt blood both the Aedra and Daedra were created with the Aedra being formed from Anu's and Padomay's mixed blood and the Daedra were formed from solely Padomay's blood. Now this is Aldmeri legend so it may not have actually occurred. Aldmeri legend also says that Anu supposedly created his own soul so he could understand himself and reflect on his actions, he was then known as Anui-el. Padomay then created his own soul Sithis, to represent all that Anui-el was limited to. Anui-el then saw the world he and Padomay created and birthed his own soul like Anu before him becoming Auri-el or Akatosh as he is better known. With time, Aurbis (the universe) gained limitations and formed natures. This allowed the Et'Ada (the previously mentioned Aedra and Daedra) to take names and forms. Sithis then supposedly birthed another soul as a response to this forming Lorkhan. Sithis is said to have birthed Lorkhan in order to destroy the universe however this is unlikely and is only truly advocated by the Dark Brotherhood.
