Nirn knows only Stasis and Change (Good and Evil are just concepts made by mortals in an attempt to understand the reason of the Stasis and the transition through Change), the two forces, a dual aspect of the Divinity, found in TES.
Magicka is Entropy, a measure of the "disorder" in Creation. By Magnus, the Mathematician, who knows the Alphabet of the When and Where, Nirn, an Entity-Realm not yet known, Became. With the Earth Bones, the Laws of Nirn (Lex Naturalis) were established. Through Magicka, the Change could become Stasis and the Stasis could become Change.
Magicka is the manipulation of the Divinity - the Spark of the Creation.

Is Padomay a deity who wants blood and sacrifices (Sithis), or it represents the Everlasting Change, full of mysteries and uncertain stories? Which one of the possible realities are the Truest? Perhaps the answer can be obtained from the PSJJJJ.
With the Elder Way, the vision of Mundus becomes something deeper and comprehensible, without just a meaning, but with all the possible meanings. The Word is made True, and with True, the Impossible is made Possible.
The Meaning of the Eye, coming with the Dragon and in a Time without The Crown: All was made possible because it was seen a long time ago, and in all possible ways:
The Red Flame Jewel, which was broken by the Moon-and-Star Soul of the Houses is the Key. The Key of Change and the Key of Sight. Look into the Tower, and you will See: Eight Times and One Choice are made in Oblivion. Look in the Sigillum... All is Sanguis. Seek the Hidden Knowledge but be prepared. Do not carry what you can not if you do not deserve it. But if you choose to, use the Strength of Faith to Guide you through the Void Waters.
All is in One. All is in PSJJJJ.

GC: Tell us about your first impressions of Turing.
NH: Well, wow! Honestly, I think I was just reeling from the shock for the first few days. It was the first time I'd actually met with Alan in nearly six years, too, which was a little distracting. In some ways I'm only really appreciating it all now. I think the most incredible thing is the sense of intellectual freedom. What's considered insane out at places like MIT or Stanford or Cambridge - maybe a little less so at places like Cambridge, but still - those things are perfectly legitimate avenues of enquiry here. It's exciting to see!
GC: Whoa, can we back up for a moment here? You said you didn't see your husband for six years. How did that happen?
NH: (Laughs) Actually, I'd only met him once, six years ago, before arriving here. I think that's part of what he means when he tells people about the disadvantages of 'going virtual'. Anyway, six years ago - I was fifteen - I got out of the pool after training and found that Alan (although I didn't know him then) had stolen my towel. So I was confronted by this good-looking guy who grinned and said he was only giving my towel back if I said I'd marry him! I didn't think he was serious, so I said, sure I'd marry him and could I have my towel back, please. You can imagine how surprised I was to find his email later!
GC: And did he expect you to stick to that promise?
NH: That's kind of tricky to answer. It was never a case of my being pushed into something I didn't want . . . but I think Al always assumed things would go that way. He gets very intense when something matters to him. I'm not sure I was really certain he was serious about anything until February. It's not that I didn't trust him, but - yeah, doing everything virtually is hard.
GC: Any tips for other young couples doing things online?
NH: I think it's going to be different for everyone. In retrospect, it would've been much easier if we'd actually met up a few times. I think my family would've been a lot more comfortable with that and it wouldn't have been the risk it seemed. But at the time it was much harder to see clearly. Maybe the best advice I have is just to follow your heart.
GC: Well, enough about the past. What can you tell us about
your plans for the future?
NH: Alan's got plenty on his plate, of course, and I can't imagine that's going to change any time soon! Now that I'm starting to find my feet there are a few projects I'm
excited to be getting involved with, especially relating to the human-computer interface. There's plenty to keep me occupied and then when we're a little more settled - well, I've always wanted to be a mama.
GC: I'm melting from the adorable! Mrs. Hardy, thank you very much from taking the time to talk to Geek Chic magazine and best of luck with all your future plans.
'The best anniversary gift'
[Turing Times 15 April 2008]
Yesterday evening, Nix Hardy, Turing's unofficial 'geek queen' gave birth to twin daughters. The so-called royal birth has ignited a festive atmosphere throughout the community, sparking impromptu parties and celebrations at every turn. To add fuel to an
already-roaring fire, yesterday marked the first anniversary of Nix and Alan Hardy's marriage. 'It ought to happen once in three hundred and sixty five births, statistically speaking,' one reveller told The Times, 'but it's a happy coincidence that it's our own royal couple.' At a nearby punch bowl, the conversation turned on the task awaiting the new mother. 'She's got her job cut out for her and no question about that, but if anyone has the gumption to handle it, Nix Hardy does.'
Mrs. Hardy was not available for comment, but Mr. Hardy went on record declaring that the birth of his daughters was 'the best anniversary gift we could have wished for.' Mother and babies Mackenzie and Melissa remain at the Turing Medical Centre and are doing well.
'Twins in Turing' - Nix Hardy on Motherhood
[Geek Chic September 2010]
Geek Chic have asked me to write something as an encouragement to mothers and mothers-to-be in the Turing community. This strikes me as rather ironic, because it's you who have been my greatest encouragement in bringing up my girls. All of you: the people who let me know that this is a hard job and that it's okay to struggle; the people who've reminded me that I'm immensely privileged to be doing the job I am; the people who, when I've felt discouraged, have shown me that, yes, it can be done. Sometimes I hear these things from you in words, but more often I see it in your actions. All over this community kids are growing up as amazing people and valued members of the community. We're doing it right.
Perhaps because my girls are twins, or maybe because my husband is rather well know, people sometimes seem to think that I must know some great secret of bringing up kids. I suppose I do. Are you ready for it? You might know that the movie Kung-Fu Panda was
released while my girls were infants. There's a line of that movie that's stuck with me ever since I watched it: 'There is no secret ingredient.' Can I say that again? There is no secret ingredient. If you're doing the best you can for your family, I promise you, you're doing a fantastic job. You're not missing that supposed secret ingredient.
Sometimes I feel like I'm not making it. I think we've all been there. A few weeks ago I had one of those days: I'd given Missy something she shouldn't have had for lunch and her allergies were flaring up. Mackenzie was wailing because her sister was getting all my attention. There were a number of projects sitting neglected on my computer and I couldn't even remember what time my husband would be home. I sat there trying to comfort two wailing toddlers and I thought I've missed it. I've completely lost the plot. Yet
here I am today, writing this article as my girls play on the living room floor. Not perfect, but getting by all right. I have horrible moments as well as lovely ones. The rational part of my mind tells me that you do too. That's okay.
It's easy to look at things that have gone wrong. I should have checked the ingredients of everything I used to make lunch. I should have done x, y, z and possibly q. Should haves go on forever, but they're not helpful! There isn't a secret to doing things perfectly. We all make mistakes. What matters is how we recover. All over this community, kids are growing up with kids who love and care for them. Those parents might not be perfect, but they're more than good enough. Those parents are people like you. Parents who most days answer 'Why's the sky blue?' and 'What's a 'lectron that Daddy said about?' with the delight of discovering the world all over again, but also, I hope, parents who aren't distressed over when it doesn't work out. My mother-in-law tells me to cut myself some slack - kids are difficult. I'd like to pass that advice on to you today. There is no secret ingredient. Kids are difficult. But they're delightful, amazing and dearly beloved too.
Man Dies in Family Feud
[Sunnyvale Herald 28 Dec 2011]
For one Sunnyvale family, holiday tension escalated to tragedy this festive season. Alan Hardy was found dead two days ago, allegedly at the hands of his brother-in-law Matt Cantrip, who claims he was acting in self-defence. Matt Cantrip, his sister Nix Hardy and their families had gathered at the Cantrip family home for the holidays. Alan Hardy was not staying with the family, but may have arrived in response to a phone call from his daughter, whose cellphone was found near the scene of death.
Hardy's wife and daughters have not been seen since his death. The remaining members of the Cantrip family made no clear statement of their beliefs of the missing persons' whereabouts, although May Cantrip darkly referenced her daughter's supposed disappearance nearly five years ago. Police are reluctant to involve themselves in this aspect of the case, saying that the Hardy family's movements are beyond state authority.
Hardy Echoes May Never Fade
[Turing Times 23 Jan 2012]
The Turing community was rocked late last year by the deaths of the Hardy family. Now researcher Brett du Toit has new light to shed on the case of the so-called Hardy echoes, the binary permutations that have become ubiquitous across the world wide web in the last
month. He has revealed that these permutations are not the first of their kind, but only the most prominent. 'Nix and Alan seem to have used them to communicate during their courtship,' he said. 'It may even have been this shared skill that originally brought them
But why are the signals we're seeing now so much stronger? du Toit believes that Nix Hardy may have thrown all her vitality into creating these echoes. Stuggling to speak, he explained, 'It seems that Alan went out in response to a call from his daughter Missy's
phone. The activity records show a failed attempt to log in to Mackenzie's phone without her password and shortly thereafter an eventually successful attempt to use Missy's phone. After Alan's death Nix may have discovered that their daughter had - had unintentionally betrayed him.' du Toit's team have suggested that in her distress, Nix may have somehow used her daughters' and her own life force to perpetuate the signals she sent out. We shouldn't expect to see them fading any time soon.
It seems likely that this development will only serve to encourage the trend of incorporating the permutations into programming projects and even naming them for members of the Hardy family. They will remain indefinitely as a memorial to Nix, Mackenzie and Missy.
