1. Over; above; beyond: hypercharge.
2. Excessive; excessively: hypercritical.
3. Existing in more than three dimensions: hyperspace.
4. Linked or arranged nonsequentially: hypertext.

[Greek huper-, from huper, over, beyond; see uper in Indo-European roots.]
Lots of discussions this past week with my siblings on semantics, and how important using the correct, non-incendiary adjectives should be. GJ looked up hyper and we all laughed at definition #3. Existing in more than three dimensions. That's the one I wanna be!!!
