What is Metaphysics?
Have you ever wondered what Metaphysics was all about? A good Metaphysics Definition would be that it is a branch of philosophy that is concerned with the nature of being and reality itself. It seeks to answer some very important questions about life: “What is really there?” And “exactly what the heck is it?”
Aristotle and Metaphysics
Aristotle actually highly valued it's study and referred to metaphysics as “The First Philosophy.” Then as now, it is used to discover the meaning of existence and our place in it. Quantum Physics is doing the same thing from a pure science perspective. They are growing so close in nature that the terms “Metaphysics” and “Quantum Physics” are becoming widely viewed as synonyms. And since “science” is a relatively modern pursuit, it can be said that science is finally catching up to what our enlightened ancestors have known all along.
Dictionary.com gives the following Metaphysical Definition:
a. Concerned with abstract thought or subjects, as existence, causality, or truth.
b. Concerned with first principles and ultimate grounds, as being, time, or substance.
It is made up of two root words Meta meaning “after or beyond” and Physical meaning “of material substance.” So literally it is what lies beyond our physical world and is ultimately related to what we can call Spiritual Science or the Quest for understanding the spiritual makeup of our three dimensional reality. Our physical senses are extremely limited in scope.
If you look at the visual spectrum and the audible frequencies that we can perceive with our ears, it becomes readily apparent that we can sense very little of our universe with our 5 senses. Bees can see ultraviolet, humans cannot. Bats can see infrared, humans cannot. Dogs and other animals can hear frequencies above and below what we can detect. These are all there and detectable with technology but if we were left with our five senses alone to interpret the reality of our world, we would very wrong about most everything.
Fortunately we are getting better with modern technology and true science to build better detection equipment that allows to see beyond the physical – exactly what the definition of a Metaphysician is! We are becoming aware of so many things that even a few decades ago we would have been thought to be insane if we were to profess these things publicly. We now know that the science of the large (cosmology) and the science of the very small (Quantum Physics) are intricately related.
The metaphysical poets were a loose group of British lyric poets of the 17th century, who shared an interest in metaphysical concerns and a common way of investigating them, and whose work was characterized by inventiveness of metaphor (these involved comparisons being known as metaphysical conceits). These poets were not formally affiliated; most of them did not even know or read each other. Their poetry was influenced greatly by the changing times, new sciences and the new found debauched scene of the 17th century.
John Donne, along with similar but distinct poets such as George Herbert, Andrew Marvell, and Henry Vaughn, developed a poetic style in which philosophical and spiritual subjects were approached with reason and often concluded in paradox. This group of writers established meditation—based on the union of thought and feeling sought after in Jesuit Ignatian meditation—as a poetic mode.
Metaphysics is based upon the Hermetic Dictum that “as within, so without; as above, so below.” The Hermetic Knowledge is contained in the works of Hermes Trismegistus (a master of metaphysics, words and poetry) who was said to combine the wisdom of the Greek god Hermes with that of the Egyptian god Thoth. This knowledge began to have a resurgence during the period of the Renaissance and is fundamental to Western Esoteric Tradition as well. As it turns out what feeds our universe is a black hole at the center of our Milky Way Galaxy, which is connected at the other end to a white hole, creating a wormhole. That appears to be the birth of our universe or the virgin birth.
Human beings also have the same energetic energy vortex as wormholes (black holes and white holes interconnected) via our chakras. Chakras have an entry point, a center tube as well as an exit point, just like a wormhole. If we learn to go inside of ourselves like all traditions teach us, we can access these wormhole portals and travel inter-dimensionally! Tibetan Buddhists do this regularly as do many spiritual adepts and metaphysicians.
These chakras or “wheels” have been known to exist since the dawn of civilization and studies by the cultures of the east. Indian Ayurvedic Physicians as well as Traditional Chinese Medicine Doctors look to our chakras and meridians first, so see the “source” of the disturbance. We in the west usually try to silence the effects (symptoms) instead. Good for Doctors, bad for patients (as the energy flows from patient ($$$) to doctor instead of the other way around.)
A good Metaphysician also knows that we have bodies beyond the physical. The human aura (which can now be detected clearly) is one of these bodies. It corresponds to the etheric body or our body double. That is why psychic or metaphysical healers can see a problem before it manifests physically, and effectively treat the source of the dis-ease (which if not treated energetically, will show up physically for your traditional doctor to treat!) These energetic bodies exist outside of our physical experience, and is the source of Astral Travel, Out of Body Experiences, Near Death Experiences, Lucid Dreams and other Psychic “mysteries.” It is no mystery if you do your homework!
Discover the easiest way to tap into the metaphysical arena is by bypassing the conscious mind using binaural beats. These specialized brainwave frequencies put you into a deep altered state of consciousness where you can discover your life's purpose, astral travel, attract love and prosperity and unlock your full potential. I highly recommend it as I do it nightly and it has caused my brain's neural network to be “wired for success” by creating new neural networks (Einstein knew how to tap into these, as he has 3 times the neural networks than an average person).
