AE, meaning "Is" in the Ehlnofex language, as in the "state of being,"[1] is a term often used to refer to all existence which split the eternal Void of non-existence that originally was the universe. AE, as a force, allows mortal souls to return to the realms of their aligned Aedra or Oblivion realms upon death, a transaction referred to as "lunar currency."[OOG 1][2]

An individual beyond all AE is referred to as a New Man.[OOG 1]
