Does the opposite of omnipotence exist?

(i dont know the right word for it, is it impotence/nihipotence/nonpotence/something else?)

If you are asking about fisical existence, then no: it is impossible to exist without occupying space (but again, it also depends on your definition fo the opposite of omnipotent. For me, it is that something is nowhere).

Impotence certainly exists; many men suffer from it.

I found this definition of omnipotence on wikipedia:

So i think the opposite of omnipotence would be "something with no power whatsoever".
