"Magic is just science we don't understand."
― Arthur C. Clarke
"I have walked across the surface of the sun, I have witnessed events so tiny and so fast they can hardly be said to have occurred at all, but you are just a man, the worlds smartest man poses no more threat to me than does it's smartest termite."
― Doctor Manhattan (Watchmen)

User can perceive, understand and control all aspects of existence. They can freely bend and shape all types of matter, energy, force, etc. to any extent on any scale, as well as the space-time continuum itself.

Advanced users may bend the very laws of reality, or even rewrite them to how they see fit. For example:

  • The Law of Conservation to create phenomena from nothing (including brand new ones with unique properties) or erase them completely
  • The Law of Non-Contradiction to allow the simultaneous coexistence of difference states (like existing and not existing at the same time)
  • The Law of Causality to redefine which causes trigger which effects
  • ...among many others increasingly more fundamental, eventually leading to truly Godly levels.

Unlike most almighty abilities, Physical Godhood emphasizes skill rather than power: perception equals understanding, and understanding equals control.









  • User is only Nigh Omnipotent.
  • May have problems with supernatural/magical/illogical forces.
  • Immeasurable superiority may lead to ever-growing indifference and loneliness.
    • Durably fitting in and developing a balanced personality may prove the user's greatest challenge.
