The theist doesn't believe in one god among "other possible gods."
Polytheists believe there is more than one deity, for example the
Smarta Avaita Vedanta.
The Advaita Vedanta is idealistic polytheist monism - Brahman is the
ultimate, both transcendent and immanent, the absolute infinite
existence, the sum total of all that ever is, was, or shall be. In the
Smarta Advaita there are five Gods. The word Atman means the immortal
perfect Spirit of any living thing - Atman and Brahman are One.
