After revisiting Skyrim since the switch announcement, I had dig into the lore a lot more, and find more than interesting parallel. The first to talk about is magic, which besides the normal spells that uses magika (which are infinitely superior to various other fictions and a lot more showing than real world due to vast military application, magika is a parallel of 'life force' if you may), there is also thu'um (though theorized to be internal projection, it is also possible to be minor reality warping, however it did benefit from various 'spell' perk which makes its nature somewhat uncertain), Sword singing (in TES, conjuration typically means calling other worldly creature while sword singing is a projection of internal essence) and elder magic which give direct manipulation to reality. Then into the gods. Akatosh, the imperial dragon, is literally the creation of man. In early days of the timeline, a monkey taps into omnipotence to create this god as a separate entity just cause the elves believe in a slightly different god. Both Orcs and Kajihiit (cat man) are elves mutated by spirits. And the last of all, the entire mortal existence was because the imperishable spirit was too high to see past metaphysics, which in elder scrolls is called CHIM which realizes everything is in a dream (notice that unlike our mysticism, this is way past metaphysics, which are ruled by the spirits) but continue to exist out of sheer will, and beyond that evolving past omnipotence to become the creator of new realities that allow bypassing the laws of existing metaphysics, but possibly giving up their own so small pieces of them or die (the only other lore I've seen this is early Taoism in unspecified era, possibly before its religious shift). And the one who propose the concept of CHIM is the father of all vampires and god of domination which is really weird. And the only Aethiest in universe are a group of elves who live underground.
