Omniscient: having unlimited or infinite knowledge.

noun

Omniscience: unlimited or infinite knowledge.

Philip felt that he ought to have been thoroughly happy in that answer of hers; she was as open and transparent as a rock-pool. Why was he not thoroughly happy? Jealousy is never satisfied with anything short of an omniscience that would detect the subtlest fold of the heart.

—George Eliot The Mill on the Floss (1860)
