When something is super awesome

A galaxy of gorgeosity.
Noun: incomparable or inexpressible beauty;
 the state of being all that is gorgeous and fabulous
state of perfection in all areas; 
endlessly amazing.

“Oh it was gorgeousness and gorgeosity made flesh. The trombones crunched redgold under my bed, and behind my gulliver the trumpets three-wise silverflamed, and there by the door the timps rolling through my guts and out again crunched like candy thunder. Oh, it was wonder of wonders. And then, a bird of like rarest spun heavenmetal, or like silvery wine flowing in a spaceship, gravity all nonsense now, came the violin solo above all the other strings, and those strings were like a cage of silk round my bed. Then flute and oboe bored, like worms of like platinum, into the thick thick toffee gold and silver. I was in such bliss, my brothers.”

- Anthony Burgess "A Clockwork Orange"
