So, basically, a new world of linear but nonlinear time was made and it all depends on an outside intelligence to act on it. A game was made

 

yeah... i know what you are talking about.. the thing about the quote at the beginning of Morrowind... the outside intelligence is the player... of course.. that is another layer of complexity in elder scrolls.. there are gods like vivec that recognize that they are fictional.. and i guess that's like this CHIM thing i've read about.. the player is role playing as a person within this world.. but that person is connected to a player that can save the game and even edit the world through the CS.. that person is God.. uhh.. I don;t even know if that;s it really... there is so  much to it.. but the same thing happens in fallout games.. the same thing happens in all video games.. 

you see when a person creats a character in their head.. that character actually can talk to the person... like when writers say there characters just write themselves.. Vivec told somebody to go and edit the game so that he could break the fourth wall and talk to the player.. 

but maybe it's not fallout that leads to elder scrolls.. maybe it's just as much one leading to the other as the other to one. i mean if their is some sort of non-linear time at play which explanes dragon breaks within the world as a real world... then maybe the player save states make more sense.. if time can be warped by save states and ruling kings.. maybe there is an in game reason why this is possible..

... You can't have a changing theory that grows in complexity every time you learn more about Elder Scrolls/Fallout lore.

Occam's razor. 

 

you are right.. i don;t know enough about elder scrolls lore.. i'm a novice really when it comes to elder scrolls lore.. so... what can you do? read more? listen.. i'm fine with someone else who knows more jumping in on this if they want to.... I don't need to do it all..

Elder Scrolls would be made later than it was in this timeline, and it'd still be just a game. That'd be me theory on their connection

Here's a crack theory for you guys: 

Remember God/Dog in Fallout: New Vegas in the Sierra Madre? What if he is the Godhead? God being Anu, and Dog being Padome.

"That all the Interplay is one flea of assertion on a wolf of naught."

Clearly, the Godhead was Dogmeat.

And then what happens when Dogmeat dies? With the Godhead dying, does the Godhead still dream as a dead God?

Something new takes his place... New God/Dog, new tricks?

Sierra Madre: Mountain Mamma, Wetness of Kingdom! :P

Dogmeat from Fallout 3 died and was mantled by Dogmeat in Fallout 4

Or, perhaps Fallout 3 Dogmeat is Anu, and Fallout 4 Dogmeat is Padome.

Fallout 4 is dysentery. I havn't the foggiest fuck of a clue why anybody is still a Fallout fan. No fooling - just imagine being a Metroid fan tho; Federation Force? At least the pinball game was an awesome dungeon crawl. The fuck is wrong with developers?

I get the feeling that Fallout kind of became aajoke after New Vegas because I honestly can't take the base game seriously

I love the idea, as for all the people who  complain about the change in physics and peope being able to alter them in Elder scrolls, I have a simple fix. But I'm not gonna just put it out there. Reply to my message and I'll tell you the simple, logical fix. Also the two moon problem.

Can you also reconcile Pauline Eschatology with modern premillennialism?
