The connection and similarities between Pseudoscience and Metaphysics
When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe. -John Muir
This universe is strange enough to get us dissolved in the confusion over what we know versus what we are speculating. If you can’t explain how something works to someone and answer every question that they ask, it’s a total mistuning of your vocal cords..
Let’s say if you get a red flag, go to Google and search the concept. For instance Google “everything is energy”. You’ll notice that while it appears true-ish, it’s actually pseudoscience (no wiki, no stack exchange, no .edu, no .gov study).
What is Pseudoscience..?
It is merely a collection of beliefs or practices mistakenly regarded as being based on scientific method. A system of theories or assertions about the natural world that claim or appear to be scientific but that, in fact, are not. For example, astronomy is a science, but astrology is generally viewed as a pseudoscience.
What then is Metaphysics..?
It is the branch of philosophy that examines the nature of reality, including the relationship between mind and matter, substance and attribute, fact and value.
The Math behind the two
Math is a language used to explain the universe, it includes theoretical math, calculus, geometry, equations, statistics and probabilities, applied mathematics, and even conceptual math that may or may not apply to the physical universe directly.
Let’s take for example energy mass, the speed of light in a vacuum are all concepts that describe the very nature of particles and particle interactions, theoretical physics proven with experimental physics.
The question then risen is that “is Metaphysics a Pseudoscience?”
Although defining pseudoscience can be much harder than metaphysics, they are generally considered two separate concepts. Yet again there are claims that most metaphysics and other philosophical areas of study are by definition pseudoscience
Another form of pseudoscience is to declare a claim to be false when the claim has not been falsified — or to claim pseudoscience where there is none. And then lets also not forget don't scientists have to draw on some metaphysics when they're studying phenomenal observations (i.e. when they're on the forefront of discovery).
The claims of pseudoscience related to earth, paranormal, space astronomy, etc. have their root energy through the metaphysics of existence and reality.
