Metaphysics is a traditional branch of philosophy concerned with explaining the fundamental nature of being and the world that encompasses it.
Traditionally, metaphysics attempts to answer two basic questions in the broadest possible terms:
Ultimately, what is there?
What is it like?
A person who studies metaphysics is called a metaphysician. The metaphysician attempts to clarify the fundamental notions by which people
understand the world, e.g., existence, objects and their properties, space and time, cause and effect, and possibility. A central branch of
metaphysics is ontology, the investigation into the basic categories of being and how they relate to each other. Another central branch of
metaphysics is cosmology, the study of the origin, fundamental structure, nature, and dynamics of the universe. Some include epistemology
as another central focus of metaphysics, but others question this.
Prior to the modern history of science, scientific questions were addressed as a part of metaphysics known as natural philosophy. Originally,
the term "science" (Latin scientia) simply meant "knowledge". The scientific method, however, transformed natural philosophy into an empirical
activity deriving from experiment unlike the rest of philosophy. By the end of the 18th century, it had begun to be called "science" to distinguish
it from philosophy. Thereafter, metaphysics denoted philosophical enquiry of a non-empirical character into the nature of existence. Some
philosophers of science, such as the neo-positivists, say that natural science rejects the study of metaphysics, while other philosophers of
science strongly disagree.
The Ancient Greek word philosophia was probably coined by Pythagoras and literally means "love of wisdom" or "friend of wisdom". Philosophy has been divided into
many sub-fields. It has been divided chronologically; by topic: epistemology, logic, metaphysics, ethics, and aesthetics and by style: analytic philosophy.
As a method, philosophy is often distinguished from other ways of addressing such problems by its questioning, critical, generally systematic approach and its reliance
on rational argument. As a noun, the term "philosophy" can refer to any body of knowledge. Historically, these bodies of knowledge were commonly divided into natural
philosophy, moral philosophy, and metaphysical philosophy. In casual speech, the term can refer to any of the most basic beliefs, concepts, and attitudes of an individual
EMMI suggest skepticism as beginning position, the starting point of studying, then it is transform with questions the possibility of completely justifying any truth.
The argument may be transform when by reason in order to completely prove any statement, its justification itself needs to be supported by another justification.
This chain can do three possible options, all of which are unsatisfactory according to the Münchhausen trilemma.
- One option is infinitism, where this chain of justification can go on forever.
- Another option is foundationalism, where the chain of justifications eventually relies on basic beliefs or axioms that are left unproven.
- The last option, such as in coherentism, is making the chain circular so that a statement is included in its own chain of justification
The result of this way of studies by Rev. Eric Michel, started in 1966, can be read in our FAQs.
Eric Michel RTT Ministry applying philosophy in the search for the Truth:
|The Revelation to Eric Michel
When I (Eric Michel) watch a video on Youtube about Reza Aslan and his book Zealot Jesus of Nazareth.
He gave the answer that I was looking for all these years.
Everything is true about the historical Jesus.
Everything is true about the Biblical Jesus.
So I understood that we cannot merge the two, the Bible Jesus, the Mystical Jesus is a metaphysical entity
This Jesus, the metaphysic one, is from Israel of an other dimension, that is why he is white for many Christian but also
Black for a lot of African and African-American.
Or Spanish appearance....
Or Chinese appearance...
Or from any ethnic group.
This revelation concord with the study of the Cosmic Christ and the historic Jesus, making sens of the Christian Theology
Applying by certain members of the Catholic Clergy, ex: Richard Rohr, Sr Ilia Delio up to the 1st Fr. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Nota Bene: These names mentioned above of the Catholic clergy do not endorse, validate, support, agree to any of our theological statements,
EMMI view on the Cosmic Christ is not the view of those persons event if we share somme common statements.
