"We're talking about a level of order present at the very beginning of space-time that goes beyond anything we ever conceived. I believe that the more we learn, the more pieces Destiny uncovers, then the greater our power to control everything around us will be."
― Nicholas Rush explaining Destiny's mission (Stargate Universe)

Also Called

  • Intention Manipulation/Control
  • Design Manipulation/Control
  • Purpose Control
  • Role Control/Manipulation


The user can manipulate the purpose of anything, meaning they can manipulate what people, parts of the body and other objects were meant or intended to do, or alter their reason to exist. For example, they can alter the purpose of muscles to make them stronger and meant to lift heavy objects with little effort. They can also affect the purpose of a person's existence, and perhaps alter their destiny in a way. They can make any object be usable in ways they were not meant to. They can also alter a person or object's properties, such as shape, to make them be able to be used for the desired purpose.





  • May only be able to affect certain objects or people.
