The Metaphysical Society
What is Metaphysics?
"Metaphysics" is composed of two words.
"meta" meaning "of higher order or level," and
"physics" meaning "the science of matter and energy
and their interactions." Simply stated, "Metaphysics is a
higher order of matter and energy."
Metaphysics is also considered
a Philosophy. The term "Philisophy" is also composed
of two words. "philo" meaning "love," and
" meaning "wisdom."
Therefore, we can define the
study of Metaphysics as "the desire for a higher knowledge of
what is beyond the physical." Or as we would prefer to think of
it as "The
Philosophical Study of Being and Knowing."
This site is dedicated to the
Masters of higher knowledge, both past and present, who have
understood ancient gnosis or the "intuitive knowledge of
spiritual truths." The Masters not only understood but lived
the laws of higher principles and co-creation with the
universe. They were fully aware that we are called upon to
extend ourselves in extraordinary ways of being in order to
“know thy Self.”
The Masters were grounded in
the union of mysticism, gnosis, magic, manifestation, and
hermetic or alchemical philosophy. These union's revealed
certain truths by living the experiences and practicing the
principles learned in the course of their every day life. They
learned to go forward with discretion between the worlds of
Darkness and of Light. They proceeded with the awareness that
"truth" could only be found by walking through the Darkness.
That was the only spiritual alchemy! The result was that
through individual stages of transformation and enlightenment,
they each found their "Philosopher’s Stone." In other
words, "Being and
The Masters realized that by
keeping these higher principles alive, they would be preserving
a knowledge which had its foundation cemented in "truth."
Through intellect, will, and knowledge, they left behind their
ancient and metaphysical philosophies for us to begin our own
mystical union and journey. Together, with them as our guides,
we too may begin the “Great Work” to ascend from the world of
Darkness into the world of Light.
With this in mind, we will
strive to bring this wonderful wisdom forward. Here, we will
study the Philosophy of Religion, which focuses on the belief
in a Divine and Supernatural Power. We will also study the
Philosophies of the Mind, the Stars, the Spirit, the Soul,
Ancient Metaphysics, Mythology, Divination, and
Ethics, Morals, Right Conduct and Action
In addition to the above, it
is the goal of The Metaphysical Society to introduce approaches
and issues in the fundamental areas of Philosophy. These areas
include topics such as Ethics, Morals, Right Conduct and
The key to understanding
ethics and morals is found in the "concept of values." These
are to be found in the study of Metaphysics, which restated, is
the philosophical study of "Being and Knowing."
Subsequent to Metaphysics is
Epistemology. Epistemology is the philosophical study of the
"theory of knowledge."
These two fields of study give
rise to Ontology. Ontology is the study of the nature of "being
This further paves the way for
Existentialism. Existentialism concentrates on the idea that
we, as a society, are responsible for what we make of
Hence, it is often emphasized
in philosophical circles that ethics and morals are based on
the laws of Metaphysics.
A Web of Wisdom
As stated, our goal for The
Metaphysical Society is to become a “Web of Wisdom" that
entails “many minds…yet one thought.”
Through discipline and transcendence may we each find our
own "Philosopher's Stone" and know Thyself!
