On the Correct Speculation of the Metaphysical Realms
by Lee Duane Fitzsimmons
Since the area of metaphysical speculation is not subject to the empirically provable laws of modern physics, it is plagued with a vast amount of whim and fancy. It is also filled with the fear of the unknown. Thus, this field of thought is filled with a lot of conflicting information that can neither be proven nor disproven. In order to remedy this situation, it behooves the rational intellectual to seek out and employ methods that might increase the possible accuracy of metaphysical speculation.
One of the methods is the analyzation of the speculation that has remained consistent over the millenia. Although this type of observation cannot insure the absolute accuracy of any type of information dealing with metaphysical research, it does provide a logical alternative to far-flung meanderings and random flights of imagination. This sort of observation can also aid with the assistance of narrowing down the vast amounts of data that often accompany these areas of thought. However, these observations must remain as objective as possible or else they may be completely in vain.
When considering the speculations of our ancestors, it behooves us to factor in all of the variables present within their conjectures so that elements like environment, genetics, and practical application are taken into consideration. When some of the more obvious elements that influence these speculations are considered, many of the more time-tested aspects tend to stand out amongst the detailed minutiae that only last for a few decades and then disappear. Thus, threads of commonality can be more easily seen. These threads of commonality that linger for vast amounts of time can also be further reinforced with another very important technique.
This technique is analyzation of speculation that has commonalities in many different civilizations in geographically diverse locations. This approach enhances the possibility of accuracy to a far greater degree. When this approach is combined with the observations that use the "test of time" filter, then the accuracy levels of many types of conjecture may be increased substantially. Thus, the combination of these two analytical approaches can greatly assist the intellect as it aids the empathic faculties in the quest for more knowledge of the metaphysical realms.
Thus, the combination of these two analytical approaches can greatly assist one's intuitive ability as it explores these regions of the soul...
