"Knowledge is power."
― Francis Bacon

The ability to control and manipulate information/knowledge.

Also Called

  • Formulation Manipulation
  • Gnosokinesis
  • Information Manipulation
  • Knowledge Control
  • Wisdom Manipulation
  • Scientiakenisis


The user can manipulate any kind of information/knowledge, including create, control and destroy knowledge. By creating knowledge they insert new knowledge into the universe that becomes established fact and reality, while destroying does the opposite. An enemy could be made to forget how to walk, while an ally could be given the knowledge of an enemy's weaknesses or mastery of a fighting style.

By controlling knowledge existing truth can be changed. This ability is potentially infinite, even the impossible or illogical can be made true. Example: E ≠mc2 or 2+2=fish. A high-level user of this ability can change existence and reality on a whim.
