Reality is not only stranger than we suppose but stranger than we can suppose.
- J. B. S. Haldane
Metaphysicists build models of what they think the world really is, because as a species we have had the insight that we can not directly experience things that are beyond the ability of our perceptions to detect. We have been progressing in our pursuit of that unknown for many generations. We have discovered the electromagnetic spectrum, fundamental forces, universal constants, and are in the process of digging deeper into the fundamental particles of matter. I think it is an amazing time to live in, because its likely that as we learn about quantum mechanics, we are going to realize how limited our current physics understanding really is. When we finally make sense of what everything really is, its going to fundamentally change the way we relate to existence. And I think that sounds like fun.
