I see. So the smoke monster is really elite people who "transcend their very natures" (whatever that menas) -- elite people with amazing power and ability. That's vague enough to cover about anything and mean almost nothing -- vague enough to be stupid.
(and lest anyone be too concerned that I am only ripping apart other people's theories, rest assured, this stupid one is from my "Ben vs. The Universe" theory -- I know for sure it's stupid, cuz it's mine).
