transcendent

Transcendent describes something so excellent that it's beyond the range of human understanding.

Transcendent shares the prefix trans, meaning "across," with many familiar words such as transport ("carry across"), transcontinental ( across a continent"), and transparent ("allowing light to shine across"). Transcendental meditation carries people across to a higher consciousness. So something transcendent goes across boring reality into super awesomeness in a world all its own. It moves you. Angels are transcendent, and even your favorite novel can be transcendent.
