"The Monad is a monarchy with nothing above it. It is he who exists as God and Father of everything, the invisible One who is above everything, who exists as incorruption, which is in the pure light into which no eye can look. “He is the invisible Spirit, of whom it is not right to think of him as a god, or something similar. For he is more than a god, since there is nothing above him, for no one lords it over him. For he does not exist in something inferior to him, since everything exists in him. For it is he who establishes himself. He is eternal, since he does not need anything. For he is total perfection. A being can have a relationship with a God but not the Monad as that would be a contradiction."
― Apocryphon of John, c. 180
"God is a being of transcendent and unlimited perfections: his nature therefore is incomprehensible to finite spirits."
― George Berkeley

Capabilities

The user transcends absolutely anything and everything. This includes all dimensions, life/death, beginning/ending, concepts/ideas/principles, creation/destruction, boundaries, context, potential, possibilities/variables, levels of reality, existence/nonexistence, perfection/levels of perfection, embodiments, their personal status, being/non-being, etc.

It may be impossible to categorize or find an exact description for them in any way as they can exist completely above and beyond all classification and definition. They are unbound and are free to defy absolutely all things; even logic itself.

Usually, users of this power are limitless, eternal, timeless existences with no beginning nor end and are beyond the notion of personality and individuality. They cannot be grasped or understood as a concept at the core of themselves. Users are also distinguished from the totality as their very being completely out-classes it. Comparing the user to everything else would be like comparing a grain of sand to infinity. Thus, the user holds truly unfathomable power greatly exceeding that which exists within the framework of their world.

While they may transcend all things and nothing can apply to them unless they wish it too, they may also not be truly all-powerful beings.
