The easy way to explain CHIM

Think of TES universe as the matrix (Only it's in somebody/something's mind)

And when you realize you are in the matrix (And get that you are part of everything) you get special powers (Like in the Matrix movies)


So basically it's like the Matrix

But if you aren't strong enough (you don't take the pill), then you cease to exist.

....I'm starting to think Bethesda stole CHIM from the Matrix

I'm pretty sure CHIM was a fun, tongue-in-cheek way of alluding to the player's ability to save, reload, and decide the fate of his/her character and the surrounding characters and events. That the writers then decided it should be taken seriously and expanded upon just makes dedicated fans have a lot of fun exploring the history and metaphysics of the series. I love that they did that. :)

Bethesda = The Dreamer

CHIM = The Player.

We can effect the Dream to a certain degree (How we Play) but there are still laws and rules we must follow.

The idea of CHIM is more so with the PC version as it has the Console and the Creation Kit allowing the player to further bend the Dream to their will.

Zero Summing is when the Player gets bored and moves on hence erasing themselves from the Dream, they are no longer part of it.
