"Dies, died, will die. Lives, lived, will live. It’s all a matter of perspective."
― The Lutece "Twins" - Bioshock Infinite

The ability to manipulate all perspectives. Like its name would suggest, it embodies one of the fundamental forces of reality - that of change, interpretation, and ultimately, equality.

Capabilities

The user is able to manipulate all perspectives about everything. Since everything, including reality itself is based upon one's perspective, this power can essentially create a new being, or denies the existence of a being. All the concepts like time, space, causality, (and so on) exist only because they are perceived to exist.

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 becomes 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 Perspective is to impose a specific understanding onto reality. By considering the nature of something to be different, it becomes different, by considering things to be the same, they become the same. Despite being a seemingly straightforward power, it connects to all things, and there is nothing beyond the reach of this power.

As the possible effects of this power are limited only be the wielder's imagination, it is impossible to list all of its potential applications.
