Metaphysics: Real Science or Real Bogus?

Started by Nelo Maxwell. Last reply by Nelo Maxwell Jan 9, 2014. 2 Replies

So I've been wondering what place Metaphysics has in the world of science fiction and by degrees science itself. Do book like Vodou Quantum leap or the Dancing Wu-Li Masters have any place in a world…Continue

As a Muslim I generally see the nature of my existence filtered through the Qur'an.  The missing component is the fact that God doesn't go in depth explaining our nature, so there are a lot of avenues to explore. 

One of my favorite quotes dealing with that topic: "We are spiritual beings having a human experience." 

"Spirit" is a mysterious form of energy that exists outside of the reach of science's tools of study.  It's fascinating, but unless you are of a mind to use Rick Strassman's altered states of consciousness research as the basis for scientific research into the nature of 'spirit,' then where would you start in finding the answer in your lifetime?

Metaphysics is a branch of philosophy espoused and explained by Aristotle.

I took a course in college.

Let's not confuse metaphysics with the paranormal which may include anything from ghost chasers to bigfoot hunters, although the new age movement almost ruined metaphysics. Metaphysics has more weight and credibility and is far older. Some of the wisest people on the planet have indulged in it to some degree or another. Is it not an early form of science? The ancients in their wisdom made their best attempts to work within the laws of the natural world to understand nature. I think even back then people wanted to travel to other worlds or harness energy. It's a cop-out and an insult to think they just made-up deities for everything they didn't understand. I like to think we unfortunatly lost a lot of ancient knowledge and secrets. Sure we have our televisions, radios, camaras and other modern wonders that we now take for granted, but these things have only been around about a century. The ancients had thousands of years of metaphysics, who knows how much has been lost or forgottten or maybe even secretly rediscovered.

I guess that depends on who you ask.

I have a question. Is Metaphysics really just pseudoscience if there is no actual physics involved?

A group of researchers recently observed a mysterious infrared emission coming from near a pulsar in NASA's Hubble Space telescope data. This animation depicts one possible source of the emission: a "fallback disk" or a disk that formed from materials of the parent star falling back into the neutron star after a supernova.

The Enslavement of the "Black Art Movement"

Posted by Turtel Onli on September 19, 2018 at 8:30am 0 Comments

During the heady days of the Black Cultural revolution in Chicago, there was a lot of art dealing with this hope and concept.  The mainstream galleries, Black art curators, historians and critics mostly stayed away from it.  Then once certain major players in this died in came the White parasites.  One a college professor the other a Jewish art dealer.  Both swooped in making deals to sell works, with the other building a entire career path for herself.  Now they are the accepted go-to authorities of this movement. That they treat as a dead slave on their plantations. "The Black Art Movement" now produces no revenue or power for the people it were supposed to benefit.

And all of this happened due to the "Black on Black boycott" that allowed non-Blacks to walk in a take it to the bank.  WHen Black do not support and endorse its own positives others come in later to reap its resources, power & wealth.

When the researchers turn an external magnetic field in different directions (indicated with arrows), they change the orientation of the linear electron flow above the kagome (six-fold) magnet, as seen in these electron wave interference patterns on the surface of a topological quantum kagome magnet. Each pattern is created by a particular direction of the external magnetic field applied on the sample.

Republicans: Founded in 1854 by anti-slavery expansion activists and modernizers, the Republican Party quickly surpassed the Whig Party as the principal opposition to the Democratic Party. In 1860, it came to power with the election of Abraham Lincoln to the presidency. The party presided over the American Civil War and Reconstruction and was harried by internal factions and scandals toward the end of the 19th century. Today, the party supports a conservative platform (from an American political perspective), with further foundations in supply-side fiscal policies,…

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
