Can you define "god", please? I am not quite sure I understand the question.

Depends on what you mean by 'God.' According to some definitions God is that than which nothing greater can be conceived, so going "beyond" God to something supposedly greater is a logical impossibility given the definition......

Still, in some other contexts, I can get what you're saying. The Hindu concept of Brahman, for example, is not 'God' in the theistic sense of a personal creator. This Brahman is synonymous with the Self of all beings and is ontologically higher than any deity you can set limits to.... Some Hindus even believe there really exists a personal God who manages karma and runs the world, but that even he is not as great as the Supreme Brahman..... just a thought.
