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?

Come Forth The Rising Tide

It's the Apocalypse, already in progress…



“Gabriel’s Horn is the only thing that can drive back the Rising Tide and you let them take it to Hell?” Father Finnegan threw the glass of box wine into the fireplace in disgust. Renwick didn’t flinch and threw the chain holding Jillian Pace onto his desk.



“Is that what they were doing? You didn’t say anything about a damned horn. You said get the girl away from the Tide. She’s here. Bounty’s done, I…

What if a abandoned baby blue whale hooks up with a school of flying fish and a couple of old pelicans and figures out how to fly?

The Gathering Storm

Posted by Thaddeus on April 26, 2017 at 1:40pm 1 Comment

The three ship escort arrived in Havari space, three weeks after we left what was left of Corva Prime. The Havari were preparing a new offensive now that the Hegemony was in disarray.

Rapacious, the Havari had chaffed under the Hegemony’s rules for the annexation of worlds. While they were barely members of the Hegemony, they were forbidden to take any planets that were part of Hegemony space. This meant they were forced to move away from the coreward worlds they preferred, and instead into the radiation-poor regions of the the edgeward planetary systems.…

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.
