User can create, shape and manipulate distance; a numerical description of how far apart objects are. In physics or everyday discussion, distance may refer to a physical length, or an estimation based on other criteria (e.g. "two counties over"). In mathematics, a distance function or metric is a generalization of the concept of physical distance.

Thus the user is able to manipulate how far objects are from each other, regardless of the other objects around them. For example: user can make two objects touch each other from different sides of the room, without having to move them; this could potentially allow one to bypass in-between obstacles. The user can also apply this to the surrounding structures, such as making a hallway potentially never ending, or reducing a gigantic room into a cramped space.

By applying this ability on sensory, they can sense far away targets as if they were right in front of the user, or extend the distance to prevent the enemies from sensing.

Even if objects are touching face-to-face with each other, there is still a gap in between them, separating the objects' individuality, if only by a molecular-level. By reducing the distance to absolute zero, one can potentially fuse the two objects down at the molecular, or even atomic, level. By reducing the distance of space around an object to zero, the target can be crushed into a singularity, completely destroying them, akin to a black hole.
