- adj. extremely physical.
from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- Beyond the physical; non-physical; transcending what is immediately given in physical research.
Among shamans, prophets, and mystics, we find reports of effects that imply influx from ultraphysical dimensions.
In the widespread, though erroneous, use of the term in current popular literature, there is a remnant of the notion that metaphysical means ultraphysical: thus, "metaphysical healing" means healing by means of remedies which are not physical.
