― Alan Watts

Capabilities

Omnipotence (from Latin: Omni Potens: "all power") is the almighty in every sense and aspect. The best way to understand it is the very principle of miracles, thus like a universal principle.

Principles of Omnipotence

Absolutely Everything; Omnipotence is the very act of doing absolutely anything. It is all power, top-level, absolute pinnacle and everything beyond them, existing above and beyond any other power and concept, without any effort.

To give an illustration, omnipotence is the description of everything, including every possible, impossible, beyond notions of infinity.

Omnipotence can do the impossible such as "bigger than infinity", "making a squared circle" or "transcending itself."

Only One; Suppose omnipotence splits into parts, each one of these omnipotent. Then as omnipotence is the doing of absolutely anything, any slightest opposition between each part will lead to successfully negating the doing, and hence the result is nothing happens until there is unity. But that is the same as one omnipotence, thus removing the distinction of splitting and not splitting omnipotence into multiples.

Notes

  • Beyond Omnipotence is Omnipotence
    • Omnipotence by definition is the absolute pinnacle.
    • If something were to beat omnipotence, then it was never omnipotent to begin with.
  • Omnipotence in Fiction
    • Strictly speaking, omnipotents in fiction often have human-like personalities, thus they are not omnipotent. However they are often the sole absolute almighty in their setting, thus they are close enough to represent omnipotence.
      • Though there are exceptions (e.g. Creator from Umineko)
    • It's one and only wielder (there can be only one in each fictional continuity, hence the "Above All") is fundamentally invincible, completely immune to all other powers, and able to defeat the combined might of all creation and its mightiest beings just by wanting it, without the slightest effort.
  • In Trans-Fictional Theories
    • If their are many Omnipotent beings in the multiverse then they would fundamentally be the same being, representing the individuality of their respective universe and unity of the infinite cosmos of other realities.
      • Thus being a more truer omnipotent being by universal concept and the principals of omnipotence.

Trivia

  • Omnipotent beings can only apply their power in their respective fiction.
  • Omnipotence can't be achieved via other powers or otherwise.
