SO IN CLOSING, RETURNING TO THE CENTRAL POINT: METAPHYSICS = SOPHISM OF PSEUDOSCIENCE
Fictions can be used for the purpose of meaning when we cannot model the underlying complexity in mind. Fictions can also be used to deceive.
—“Max Tegmark says that consciousness is a ânew form of matterâ
Theoretical physics is basically just metaphysics.
Everettian multiverse is basically metaphysics
Bohmian mechanics is metaphysics because it has unknown variables in the math
A-theory of time is metaphysics because it needs new physics such as the ether”—
Yes these are metaphysical statements meaning that they are NONSENSE statements, precisely because there is no discipline of metaphysics, only that category of nonsense we call metaphysics.
In other words, metaphysics is a name we use for a category of sophism we call pseudoscience. There is neither a discipline (grammar) of pseudoscience nor metaphysics, any more than there is a discipline (grammar) of ghost studies. It is just a name for sophisms of pseudoscience, idealism, and the occult.
