The problem with metaphysics — it is not empirical. Metaphysics as very pseudo-science, and against rationalism. Empiricism as “experience”— real life lived experience.

For example we cannot weigh a soul. But we can weigh a human body. We can see flesh. Human flesh is the most empirical thing which exists.

We cannot judge metaphysical things like “virtue” and “vice”— but we know what a photo is, what a video is, what colors are, and what human bodies are.

Therefore my idea:

Be highly highly highly suspicious of any thinker or individual who has (too much) belief in metaphysics (things which aren’t physical).
