Perception of Metaphysics

reality of metaphysics

Metaphysics is the branch of philosophy that deals with the first principles of things, including abstract concepts such as being, knowing, substance, cause, identity, time, and space. An abstract theory or talk with no basis in reality. This concept of society as an organic entity is, for market liberals, simply metaphysics.

Metaphysics has two main strands: 1) what exists lies beyond experience (as argued by Plato), and 2) that objects of experience constitute the only reality (as argued by Kant, the logical positivists, and Hume).

Metaphysics has also concerned itself with a discussion of whether what exists is made of one substance or many, and whether what exists is inevitable or driven by chance.

The origin of the word is mid 16th century and was understood to mean ‘the things after the Physics,’ referring to the sequence of Aristotle's works. It was later interpreted as meaning the science of things transcending what is physical or natural.

Given this simple dictionary introductory explanation it can be understood that metaphysics is like all other sciences and studies in that it is a compilation of opinions that sets the stage for exploring the unknowns of existence.

Now that the door to the unknown has been opened it is never going to be the same; like when in olden days the word of new notions circulated. When the word of the world not being flat, but that the world was round was first spoken and before it became commonly excepted after years of exploring.

Metaphysics is a study of a perception of reality, you see reality is in fact a perception of an objective perspective. Now when we discover, explore and experience things about our existence we are in fact dealing with the reality, existence perspective. So when you think about life and death relation and the powers, forces and strengths that propel existence you are dealing in the metaphysical, that which is beyond the physical experience.

Some relegate the notions of death and the spirit to religious belief; but the fact of the matter they are metaphysical concepts that must have real metaphysical energy supporting the impact, cause and effect of each and every action stimulus and response as does the physical world have with dimension form and measure.

Now how can I say this with confidence, well we must look at it this way, if we experience existence it must have descriptive parameters; and indeed it does; sense, feeling and awareness are metaphysical parameters of cognition, concept and perspective.

Let me explain this, the sense of cognition is concept of perspective; and to have perspective one needs to have concept cognition, so you see this continuum of thought is a metaphysical concept because it has no physical parameters except these metaphysical descriptors. One more point, you cannot put your hands on cognition, concept nor perspective in this metaphysical reality, it is a mind thought without physical parameters. You see you can create physical concepts, physical perspective and physical cognition examples but the thought itself is metaphysical. I hope this is recognized, its paramount to gaining clarity, for this is the notion of metaphysics. You see imagination vision and insight is a metaphysical cognition, concept and perspective as comprehension is concept understanding. See, these are the pure thoughts we use to devise our physical reality, they are above and beyond the physical environment, they are the power, force and strength of being, mind and spirit of reality existence and universe.

Now you might realize reality is a perception of some existence objective from some perspective, this is why perception is an opinion belief that varies by individual cognitive ability and awareness skill...

Case in point: Zeitgeist has spawned a movement of metaphysical doubt that persist to default to the atheistic null concept (there is no God). This concept is fallible in that, nothing, "is everything", the sense of the notion, defining God, implies that, "everything comes from nothing". "One must be more careful not to throw out the baby with the wash water. " God is the force, of Being, and must be in the equation of the energy that sources the life of existence.

Explanation maybe found in Wickapedia, as Zeitgeist is "the spirit of the times" or "the spirit of the age." Zeitgeist is the general cultural, intellectual, ethical, spiritual, and/or political climate within a nation or even specific groups, along with the general ambience, morals, and sociocultural direction or mood of an era (similar to the English word mainstream or trend.

The concept of Zeitgeist goes back to Johann Gottfried Herder and other German Romanticists such as Cornelius Jagdmann, but is best known in relation to Hegel's philosophy of history. In 1769 Herder wrote a critique of the work Genius seculi by the philologist Christian Adolph Klotz and introduced the word Zeitgeist into German as a translation of genius seculi (Latin: genius - "guardian spirit" and saeculi - "of the century"). The German Romanticists habitually attempted to reduce the past to essences and treated the Zeitgeist as a historical character in its own right, rather than a generalized description for an era.

Now you see, It takes little intelligence to develop doubt from a myth, it takes genius to develop certainty... If you think you are lost, "you are indeed lost." The unknown is a piece of data that has no measure, as it is with your wandering, if that is the case, for knowing is only the acceptance of the unknown as being inclusive to the equation of what is being sought and will be discovered if it is so desired to be, or not to be if that is the desire... Which is it do you seek, to be; or not to be an inclusive part of the whole of the All of which you are a part? This condition makes the All known or unknown according to your desire. You see, "what you envision is what you know," "what you do not envision, you can not know..." It is quite simple when you ponder the capacity of the mind's thought that manifest, visions and creates all you sense explore and experience...

So, you see, atheist, you are correct in that, your, nothing is God; for that is your vision...

Now this was a metaphysical discussion for it deals with the thoughts that create reality...

God speed, "may the force of the source be with you to lift the veil of the unknown, so you might sense your heritage, in the All"... This is the super set of metaphoric rhetoric, the dialectic, of the source... Existence,"is composed of the power, force and energy-strength," that manifest the substance we witness; as we will life-matter existence, this is, "the All".

IntimatEvolution, Thank you dear lady for your interest and appreciation...


thevoice, I thoroughly appreciate your enjoyment, thanks for expressing it...


Maggie, Well we can do that, you might even suggest a subject and we can discuss it...

Always great to hear from you...

Remember always pit what you perceive on a three dimensional array of your desire, emotion and will, if by chance your conscious conscience perception senses an error pretty good chance there is one, so look closer... This goes for everything I write, I do take a lot for granted in that the theory I use is a Rosetta Stone... So question what you perceive you understand, its part of the course...

Glad to be on this path! Whether drawn to you & your HubPages is because it is the metaphysical LAW, or simply because your Hubs are loaded with informative information I seek to understand on a deeper level is a question I am working on figuring out. Thanks for continuing to share the wealth of your knowledge!
