om•ni•pres•entˌɒm nəˈprɛz ənt(adj.)
present everywhere at the same time.
Origin of omnipresent:
ubiquity, ubiquitousness, omnipresence(noun)
the state of being everywhere at once (or seeming to be everywhere at once)
the ability to be at all places at the same time; usually only attributed to God
Omnipresence or ubiquity is the property of being present everywhere. This characteristic is most commonly used in a religious context, as most doctrines bestow the trait of omnipresence onto a superior, usually a deity commonly referred to as God by monotheists, as with God in Christianity. This idea differs from Pantheism, which identifies the universe and divinity; in divine omnipresence, the divine and universe are separate, but the divine is present everywhere; see panentheism for a third variant.
The Nuttall Encyclopedia
an attribute of the Divine Being as all-present in every section of space and moment of time throughout the universe.
