It has some combinations of spirituality, philosophy, reincarnation, life after death, religion, inbound peace, etc. Although its not only belonged to any religion, it is seen wider existing in almost all the religions. Its full of empirical thoughts that are not or cant be experimentally tested. It deals in providing thoughts for the behavior of nature, lives, universe etc which cannot be fully detailed in science. Its motto is learning through being and knowing. The questions of a meta physicist is broad and are not solved by the experiments by science. some of the typical questions are. What is our life's motto?

Quotes on metaphysics


“In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.”
- Terry Pratchett
“If it turns out that there is a God...the worst that you can say about him is that basically he's an underachiever.”
― Woody Allen
“belief is the death of intelligence.”
― Robert Anton Wilson
“From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: that we are here for the sake of each other - above all for those upon whose smile and well-being our own happiness depends, and also for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times a day I realize how much my own outer and inner life is built upon the labors of my fellow men, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received.”
― Albert Einstein
“Inevitably anyone with an independent mind must become 'one who resists or opposes authority or established conventions': a rebel. If enough people come to agree with, and follow, the Rebel, we now have a Devil. Until, of course, still more people agree. And then, finally, we have --- Greatness.”
― Aleister Crowley
“I suppose therefore that all things I see are illusions; I believe that nothing has ever existed of everything my lying memory tells me. I think I have no senses. I believe that body, shape, extension, motion, location are functions. What is there then that can be taken as true? Perhaps only this one thing, that nothing at all is certain.”
― RenĂ© Descartes
“...reality is always plural and mutable.”
― Robert Anton Wilson
“The world is, of course, nothing but our conception of it.”
― Anton Chekhov
“Why are there beings at all, instead of Nothing?”
― Martin Heidegger
 “Our virtues and our failings are inseparable, like force and matter. When they separate, man is no more.”
― Nikola Telsa

Can you solve the three gods riddle? - Proposed Answer

I recently landed on a youtube video about this question and intrigued about its uncertainty in detail in every aspect. Hence i thought it would be a challenge to solve it and decided to work on it. For those who dont know about the question can watch this video to know it better. I thought we can exploit the details of the question to workaround and come up with a decent answer to this question. My take is as follows. Condition 1: We can ask only three yes/no questions Condition 2: Each question should be dedicated to only one god. Condition 3: You can ask multiple questions to the same god.
