Capabilities

The user can manipulate the perspectives of oneself or others about everything, allowing them to cause so powerful illusions that victims or themselves would see it as reality rather than the true state of reality itself. All the concepts like time, space, causality exist only because they are perceived to exist, so are these at the user's hand to be controlled, turning illusion into reality.

Perspective is what links the image of an object to the object itself, and so by touching what one sees, one can touch the object itself - thus, it is possible to hold a distant mountain in the palm of one’s hand. Perspective allows a single drop of rain to fill an entire ocean, or an entire ocean to be held in a cup. Through perspective, ten thousand things can become one, intent can become action, and something unseen can cease to exist entirely. With a subtle shift of perspective, it is possible to crack the earth with a single finger, or to pluck the glowing disc that is the sun from the sky.

In a practical sense, manipulating others Perspective is to impose a specific understanding onto reality, creating a very powerful illusion that the target would not even suspect it is being manipulated and totally believe it is the reality they are seeing. The user have so powerful form of illusion that it makes the reality of the victims to be changed to please their senses, making it a nigh-omnipotent form of mind control and illusion.
