We hear a lot about meta these days. It has even become the name for the parent company of Facebook. There is meta-narrative, meta-physics, meta-data, meta-fiction, meta-verse, meta-key. Meta is hot. Meta has even become an acronym — “most effective tactics available.”

Meta comes from Greek, in which it meant “beyond” or “above.”
