Just wishing to see what this might mean to others, to me it seems like neutrality or balance, and I wonder if the Psijic's of Summerset believe in this state or if it is what Sotha Sil was trying to achieve or return to in the making of Clockwork City

    Thank you for your thoughts on this @RaddlemanNumber7 I am curious though on why you see Law as the opposite of Chaos and not Order though their meaning might be the same?

    I find myself wondering now as well where true neutrality might exist on Nirn ... and I can only think it might be in the pure water we find for alchemy purposes - though have no idea at the moment how this pure water came to be.

    It's standard in the Sword and Sorcery genre to have "Chaos" opposed by "Law", or "Chaotic" by "Lawful". I believe TES follows that standard.

    I think I have found a couple more things which may be what you're looking for.

    Tower Zero, which in the time of ESO forms the core of The Direni Tower. It is utterly stable and impenetrable. When it was built Tower Zero formed the metaphysical centre and origin point of Lorkhan's new balanced design for the Mundus and the Aurbis. The White Gold Tower (Tower One), and the Zero Stone (Telvar) that gets chipped off it, is said to be an Ayleid copy of the Zero Tower. So, you might want to consider Telvar as well.

    Water seems to be the raw creatia of Nirn, the chief ingredient of all mortal lifeforms. Water's first appearance is also associated with Lorkhan, the Sundering and the creation of Nirn and the Mundus. Although it must be far closer to neutrality than the chaotic creatia of Oblivion, I think water is still a bit on the Chaotic side of things. I'm assuming here that it is mortal life that is the balance point, since that is one of the explicit objectives of Lorkhan's design. To turn water into new life what you need is a mother, and the mother's contribution consists of things like a morphotype and instincts which are clearly aspects of Law. So, it may be that a well-balanced mortal will be born Neutral.

    maybe not a coincidence then that another name for Pure Water is Lorkhans Tears:)
