Metaphysics - Poem by Bijay Kant Dubey

Metaphysics, though say I repeatedly,
But know I not the inner meaning
Lying within,
What it is metaphysics?

What is metaphysics? ,
Say you.

Derived from the Greek meta ta physika,
After the things of nature,
It refers to an idea, doctrine or reality
Outside the range of human perception.

Ontology, cosmology and epistemology
The pars of its studies,
Trying to explain the universal elements
Of reality.

Is it that where physics fails, I mean astronomy
There begins the domain of it? ,
No, no, metaphysics is not physics,
But a branch of philosophy.

In relating to physics and its astronomy,
Traverse you not into the domains
Of astrology and palmistry
Though the stars have the lights of their own.

Metaphysics I do want to make it a handy tool
Of fraud and false Indian astrologers and palmists,
But of the physicists.

    Aloha Bijay...

    Physics... Ummmmmmmm... What is in that number? Just how shifty is an 'ist'? What is in an individual's palm? ideas, doctrines, realities? Grab a handful of the best in-situ soil in your garden... view it, smell it, taste it... That is as close to reality as one will ever get on this plane... All else is pure conjecture... What is the word in your grandfathers tongue which is most closely related to the Greek definition of meta ta physika? and of philosophy... again as compared to the Greek definition... in your grandfather's natural language... discover these and we could begin a more concise and qualified discussion on the subject, and points within this post... Real good word work by the way... All of the best from this life, to you, and all of your relations... Michaelw1two
