Capabilities

The user knows everything about some specific subject and related to it. For instance, if the user's selective omniscience is designed for art, user knows all forms of art, all existing artists of the past, present, and future, everything ever composed as well as perfectly knowing all aspects of art and compositions infinitely.

This power is usually associated with embodiment of a specific subject such as embodiment of death know everything about the dead and gods. Also, this ability is the result of extracting knowledge of Omniscience, so it allows its user to know everything about something the way the omniscient knows but only about the given subject alone. Essentially, true omniscience is the combination of all possible variations of selective omniscience.
