Hyperuranion or topos hyperuranios (Ancient Greek: ὑπερουράνιον τόπον, accusative of ὑπερουράνιος τόπος, "place beyond heaven") is alternately a concept used by Plato to mean a perfect realm of Forms. It is also called Platonic realm.
The hyperuranion doctrine is also a later medieval concept that claims God within the empyrean exists outside of heaven and controls it as the first mover from there for heaven even to be a part of the moved.
