  • ,,Soon after the planets had formed, Magnus became disgusted at what Mundus was, and so left for Aetherius, his passage ripping a hole in Oblivion. Others soon followed after Magnus; these et'Ada, known as Magna Ge, left smaller holes, which became the stars.

    • They were tricked by Lorkhan and creating mundus used up much of his and the other et’Ada magic

    • They prob didn't want to die completely so they bolted while the going got good.

    • No, they weren't disgusted, but didn't want to give up their power.

      At least one elvish story says Magnus left "disgusted"; it probably has to do with the idea that the world he created ended up with mortals in it, and since he didn't want to lose his own life he obviously didn't want anyone else to lose theirs either or be born mortal, or so the thinking would go.

      So according to whom you ask Magnus's original design either incorporated mortality, or it didn't and mortality coming into play was because Lorkhan tricked the Et'ada into gjving up their powers and becoming mortal.  And a third very pro-man interpretation is that Magnus agreed to give up himself to create Mundus but later changed his mind and bailed.  In every version Magnus still leaves though.

      I thought Magnus' disgust was at Lorkhan for deceiving.

      By all accounts he was (except for the very pro-man account).  It's just that by one account (I don't remember where I read it) he was also disgusted with his creation, I'm guessing because he saw mortality for the Ehlnofey as a flaw in the design that he didn't see because Lorkhan tricked him, which isn't that different really from him just being mad at Lorkhan for lying and for almost causing him to lose his life personally.  Of course, maybe I'm remembering this wrong and it isn't stated why Magnus left in disgust in the book I read.

      Honestly, I'm second-guessing myself now; you may be right and I may be wrong, especially because I can't remember where I read this.

    • I don’t remember about if he was disgusted but he decided to terminate the project. And upon his departure to Aetherius, when he tore a hole in Oblivion to Aetherius and all but destroying him. And gave rise to the two most popular theory about magic. One being magic is what remains of Magnus on Nirn. Two the holes created by him and the Magna-Ge allows Aetherius to pour into Nirn.

      But I remember in a book in Skyrim I think, that said Anu and Padomay were infinite and thus could create. The Et’Ada formed from their spilled blood weren’t infinite and each creation weakened them. Or something among those lines.
