In modern parlance, simply we may say metaphysics is the physics of energy or the energy of physicality. It is that which stands behind, stands under (understands) all that we see and feel and do, and in a certain way that which may be defined as Spirit. Spirit is consciousness and will. Today we know, since the splitting of the atom, that all is energy. Metaphysics is not some spooky misunderstood misnomer. It is one of the four branches of Philosophy along with epistemology, logic, and ethics. Metaphysics is a formal discipline at the very basis of all we know and feel and do.
