|~ Othelia regarding her connection to the Concepts|
The Concepts are the supreme organisms that inhabit the Aafiyah-verse. Individually, Concepts are beings that contain every conceivable idea and thought that governs reality and the realms above it. Though they rarely intend to interfere with anything, their presence is so strong that they can cause ripples in space-time with their mere movements, these ripples generating vast outcrops of possibilities and timelines that which stories grow out from. Concepts are born through unknown means and inhabit the void beyond dimensions, with even infinitely layered hierarchies such as the Maelstrom of Mad Gods, and the Ladder of Angels being unable to reach them, due to the Concepts inhabiting a space far beyond any extension of these hierarchies.
The Concepts exist in a neverending state of conflict with the other, frequently growing bigger from consuming each other and absorbing their powers.
Powers and Stats
Tier: 1-A to High 1-A | 0 | Unknown, likely 0
Name: The Concepts
Origin: Aafiyah Among the Stars
Age: Irrelevant. Transcends any definition of time.
Classification: Conceptual being
Powers and Abilities:
Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Conceptual Physiology, Abstract Existence (Type 1, literal physiology is the embodiment of ideas and concepts), Nonexistent Physiology (Type 2, All existence and nonexistence are irrelevant to them, though their entire existence is abstract, the very fiber of their nature contains nothing, neither energy nor matter nor concept. Exists in a limbo between existence and nonexistence as they predate existence and themselves cannot directly interact with reality without assuming an existent avatar.), Beyond-Dimensional Existence (Type 3, the Concepts inhabit spaces unfathomably beyond regular dimensions, transcending the infinite hierarchies), Transduality (Even the weakest conceptual beings exist in a state beyond change and stagnancy, simply just being, with complete superiority over any conceptual distinctions due to being able to consume them), Regeneration (High-Godly; Some concepts can regenerate from having their concepts erased and absorbed, regenerating quickly enough to counteract frequent conceptual erasure. Some can even return from complete absorption due to their link to the Quintessentiality), Existence Erasure, Subjective Reality, Reality Warping, Power Nullification Law Manipulation, Conceptual Manipulation (Type 1; Concepts always deconstruct items at fundamental levels before absorbing them into their being, frequently absorbing and destroying lesser conceptual beings who themselves are transcendent to reality. Concepts need these abilities in order to consume other concepts and thus have many abiltiies required to break past other), Reactive Evolution, Invulnerability, Reactive Power Level (Some concepts can counteract being absorbed by other concepts given enough time, some concepts can safely inhabit the insides of stronger concepts and even resist their attempts to deconstruct them with them), , Resistance to Law Manipulation, Matter Manipulation, Conceptual Manipulation,
Attack Potency: Outerversal+ to High Outerversal (Lesser conceptual beings exist beyond even the infinite hierarchal Maelstrom of the Mad Gods, or the Pyramid of Angels, existing independent of infinite hierarchies of beings that are beyond dimensions. Not all lesser conceptual beings are made equal, and some lesser concepts contain many hierarchies of smaller concepts inside of them, often viewing these hierarchies as fiction, and thus are unaffected even by the existence of these concepts themselves. Concepts are capable of being infinitely above other concepts, and view them as infinitely reality-fiction levels below them.) | Boundless (The higher conceptual beings are beings that somehow exist even beyond the chaotic and unorganized state of lesser conceptual beings. Higher conceptual beings are devoid of any true limits, with lesser conceptual beings themselves with their infinite numbers and disorganized methods of hierarchies being a mere facet to them. Even lesser conceptual beings are described as a mere whisper in the endless noise of their existence) | Unknown, likely Boundless (The Quintessentiality is described as the final amalgamation of all conceptual beings, with implications of even higher conceptual beings not even being the strongest in the hierarchy. The Quintessentiality is the true composite of everything that exists, has yet to exist, or never existed. The organization of both higher and lesser concepts is but a minute facet of the Quintessentiality, having undefined and unfathomable inferiority compared to even a tiny fraction of it.)
Speed: Omnipresent | Omnipresent | Omnipresent
Lifting Strength: irrelevant
Striking Strength: Outerversal+ to High Outerversal | Boundless | Unknown, likely Boundless
Durability: Outerversal+ to High Outerversal | Boundless | Unknown, likely Boundless
Range: High Outerversal (Even the weakest lesser conceptual beings have an influence through the stronger abstracts they inhabit) | Boundless | Boundless
Standard Equipment: None notable.
Intelligence: All concepts encompass all existing concepts both human, inhuman, that dictate the laws of lesser pantheons and hierarchies, all knowledge and organization that is granted onto existence originates from them, and returns to them.
Weaknesses: Though omniscient, they primarily focus on devouring other concepts to strengthen themselves.
Key: Lesser Abstracts | Higher Abstracts | The Quintessentiality
All events of the Aafiyah Among the Stars verse is primarily orchestrated by what is simply the perpetual arms race that the Concepts exist in. Concepts are infinitely generated from an unknown source (heavily implied to be the Quintessentiality), and thus live to get infinitely stronger. Newborn concepts often resort to consuming power from Hyperversal entities like the Maelstrom of the Mad Gods or the Pyramid of Angels in order to strengthen themselves before eating other concepts. It is unknown how lesser Abstracts become higher Abstracts. The Quintessentiality is described as the hypothetical source of the concepts, though has yet to make an appearance.
