Also Called

  • Background Control
  • Canvas Manipulation/Control
  • Framework Manipulation/Control


User can create, shape, and manipulate the Background, the area/scenery/space in the distance or that is behind any object, place, or person and which provides the framework for everything we see around us. Allowing them to control everything that makes up what they see behind them, including the shapes, features, objects, environments, distances, colors, and everything else that makes up the background up to and/or including the dimensional nature or framework of the background itself.

Since the background can apply to almost anything if operating at or taken to a high enough level, user can even erase/remove the background entirely, leaving everything to fall apart and collapse into an empty void of nothingness.
