Again, ontology has been the bulk of metaphysics for quite some time now.
When I explained two or three times above that "metaphysical" and "physical" aren't mutually exclusive categories, did you pay any attention to it? Obviously you disagreed. Can you present the core of your disagreement? It does no good for you to just keep repeating something as if I never addressed it.So, you are now saying that relative to physical objects one engages in "making observations of it" which I don't think anyone would take any exceptions. By what method then are you making those observations? Is that method physical or metaphysical?
Observations are made through one's senses, but as I noted above, preferably they'll involve scientific instruments, too.
I did, but the premise didn't follow. You said "individuals" "make observations". And I asked basically if that was a Subjective truth and you never answered the question. Would you like me to re-state it?
Now, if you are somehow answering that metaphysical question by saying physical and metaphysical "aren't mutually exclusive", what does that mean concerning apperception of a things-in-themselves?
Are you changing your position about the list of things? BTW, you haven't answered them other than to suggest philosophical Subjectivity, which would make your argument about all of life being 'physical' (particularly from other threads) very weak.
Anyway, provide some clarification(s) if you can.
Oh, did you ignore the other questions too (music and math)?
