well you know how i love my unique interpretations. but i disagree with you
in terms of "beyond" and "above" as not being essentially the same thing.
above is certainly beyond. and beyond is part of above.
besides-- words dont have meaning apart from context. they dont have
meaning at all without context. words dont have meaning- they have usage.
and "meta"/s usage in this noun signifies "above" / "beyond".
