The symbol used to represent Alom.

Alom is the material which The Supergod Council utilizes to create Monocosmic Gods such as Creators and Destroyers. A rarity within the known Omniverse, Alom is coveted by many entities and organizations across the omniversal Archverse Chain, all of which wishing to harness/utilize its power for their own personal interests.

Properties

Alom is a compound formed from the combination of two Trosinic Elements, Al and Om. The Supergod Council possesses infinitely more quantities of Alom than what "naturally" occurs in The Omniverse, which is how they are able to efficiently produce many Creators and Destroyers within a small given interval of metatime. There is theorized to be some type of semi-sentience that inherently lies within Alom, likely as a consequence of the conceptual unification of Logic and Emotion; meaning that it is possibly capable of thought. However, the degree of this sentience isn't fully known.

Alom can be likened to clay in terms of its use. It can be molded and sculpted into whatever purpose is intended for it. After a certain interval of (meta)time, however, the clay will logically solidify, permanently remaining in its most recent logically soft state. After this point, the Alom is virtually useless for any other purpose besides the one it had been molded for. It is impossible for Entities of any quantity below Omnipotent^3 to manually destroy or damage Alom without some form of artificial assistance (as in technological, magical, etc). While it is possible for Omnipotent^3 entities to manually destroy Alom, doing so is considered too tedious and inconvenient of a process for it to be worth it. Therefore, Alom was typically disposed of rather than destroyed in the metage of the Old Council, which had no access to any artificial means of destroying the Alom. A new method of creating monocosmic gods is being utilized by the current Supergod Council, one which leaves behind no excess Alom and therefore provides no need to destroy or dispose of Alom in Beyond.

Symbolic Significance

As with many materials, Alom represents certain philosophical and alchemical ideas to various civilizations. This is most especially true of Transcendental cultures. Alom is perceived as representing the unification of opposites, and the achievement of Non-Duality resulting from this unification. Alom’s component aspects - Al and Om - are conceptual opposites of each-other. What one element represents completely contradicts the other. Al is typically depicted as representing Logic, Light, Heat and Rigidity. Meanwhile, Om is depicted as representing Emotion, Dark, Cold and Malleability. While one could easily draw the conclusion that these two elements would be completely incompatible, the Al and Om somehow successfully join together, achieving a full fusion and transmuting into an entirely new state: Alom. Since Alom is perceived as the primary progenitor of lifeforms within Transcendentem, many cultures posit the belief that the union between opposing forces is the origin behind any form of life or consciousness.

Uses

Alom so far is known to have a few practical uses. These uses include, but are not limited to:

  • Creating sentient beings, which can at most be just as powerful as their creator.
  • Naturally forming lifeforms.
  • Merging with already-existing beings, and granting them greater power.
  • Utilizing and/or weaponizing into Magic.

"Powers"

As previously stated, along with being able to create entities, Alom can also be bonded to already-existing beings. Assuming that the being in question is strong(-willed) enough to survive this, and successfully forms a symbiosis with Alom without being painfully destroyed, this grants them immense power. This is most especially effective on mortals, although gods and cosmic entities can also see a significant boost from Alom. It even is speculated that Hyperman may have somehow utilized Alom in his ascension to Godhood. Such abilities that are gained by the symbiosis with Alom include, but are by no means limited to:

  • Increase in power
  • Further enhancement of pre-existing abilities
  • Healing oneself and others
  • Creating and/or restoring life
  • Reality warping
