Metaphysical Book List

What does Metaphysical mean?

Metaphysical is defined as a branch of philosophy exploring the fundamental nature of reality.  Topics of metaphysical investigation include existence, objects and their properties, space and time, cause and effect, and possibility. These topics are coming under heavy fire by physicists and philosophers recently as we try to figure out where and who we truly are. Are we participants in a multi-dimensional reality, a virtual reality matrix or even just a dream?
