Omnistates disproven

I didn't put this in religion because religion likes to hijack serious philosophy as it's own.

Knowing that you don't know something is a state of knowledge. In order to know everything, you also have to know what it's like to know nothing that you know, simultaneously, forever. Leads to absurd contradiction.

In order to have potence, you must have presence as well... to be all present is to run into the first absurd contradiction, to be everywhere and nowhere and everything in between at the same time.

There goes the three main omnistates people consider philosophically.

Of course; the most important omnistate for everyone is omnibenevolence....
