Metaphysics is considered to be one of the greatest philosophical works of all time. It was Aristotle who was the first philosopher to speak of metaphysics. He believed metaphysics is the study of the One Substance which exists and causes all things. Aristotle’s wanted to know, ‘what exists’, and thus what it means to be ‘human’. Isn’t that something you to would want to know?
So…What do you think when you read or hear of metaphysics? Do you think, that’s not for me? If you do, why? Maybe it’s because you don’t know enough about it? So come on lets explore words and their meanings, and see if you will have an adventure as you come to find out what is ‘behind’ all things. We will start with understanding a little about two words, Metaphysical and Metaphysics.
That means…we investigate…with the help of a dictionary. Doing so, we learn that by….
Breaking down the word metaphysical you get ‘meta & physical’. But looking deeper you find ‘meta’ means ‘situated behind.‘ Since meta means’ situated behind’, it would make sense to find out what it is, that it is, behind.
And the word ‘physical’ means, that which is ‘material’, and a meaning for material is the ‘substance of what something is made.’ In other words, what is behind your physical reality. Don’t you think that would be good to know? I do.
Now lets better understand the meanings for Metaphysical. Metaphysical means the ‘relationship between matter and mind’. What is matter? It has the same meaning as ‘material’…the substance of which any physical object is composed. Do you know what that substance is?
Now lets find out about ‘metaphysics …which means ‘something without material form or substance’. Wow, did you know things existed without material form and substance? Do you know what they are? …I do.
Okay…Metaphysics also means the ‘study of the ultimate reality’.
Ultimate means, ‘No further progress is possible.’ Not possible because ‘ultimate ‘ also means the ‘conclusion.’ Ultimate means ‘something without material form or substance.
Since metaphysics is the ‘study of the ultimate reality rather than the human reality’ is probably the reason most people stay away from it. It is far to much work to devote time to the study of REALITY when it is far easier to be human and stay in the human reality. Human is, “earthly beings,” as opposed to the man of Gods/Consciousness, Creating.
Metaphysics is ‘the investigation of the nature and structure of reality and is concerned with such questions as the existence of God, and the external world.’ Wouldn’t you like to know how and if they are connected?
Metaphysics is the study of physical reality and beyond. Metaphysics is finding out what is, existence, and what sorts of things exist in the world? Metaphysics is understanding the nature of reality? And does anything of this world… exist outside the mind? Why would one not want to investigate the cause of all thing?
And how about this
are finally coming together. Both are looking at metaphysics to answer questions.
So…now what do you think of metaphysics? Is it still not for you? If so, why? Why if metaphysics means the ‘study of the ultimate reality‘? Who wouldn’t want to know the ultimate reality?
Learn why metaphysics is once again being looked into by so many. AND… who knows, you may end up being a Mystic.
