A student of spirituality, Xenethon, discussed the scientific, ancient, and astrological interpretations of 2012, as well as ideas related to metaphysical evolution. "We as human beings seek to evolve," and we have done so physically, but now we need to do so spiritually, he said. Rather than the brain, he stressed the importance of the heart as a pathway to intuition and spiritual growth, and as we evolve, "the love of power will be replaced by the power of love."Many ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians knew about the 26,000 year cycle of our solar system traveling through the galaxy, he said, noting that half this cycle has a hotter climate-- a period we are entering into now. With current overpopulation and global warming, there won't be enough food and water to go round, and we'll see unrest, he cautioned.As we head into 2012, there are ancient prophecies of natural disasters, and an even greater potential for a man-made calamity, said Xenethon. He outlined some possible Earth changes that could have serious consequences-- the planet's axis shifts, polar magnetic fields reverse, and the rotation of the Earth's core stops and reverses. We are also going to see a significant alignment of the planets in the next two years, and this could cause a gravitational pull on the Earth, and increase earthquake and volcanic activity, he suggested. Biography:Xenethon, a businessman and filmmaker, worked in Hollywood and traveled extensively for over twenty years, providing him with a unique perspective of the human condition. His associates range from business and scientific leaders to writers, artists and spiritual educators. WikipediaMetaphysics is a traditional branch of philosophy concerned with explaining the fundamental nature of being and the world, although the term is not easily defined. Traditionally, metaphysics attempts to answer two basic questions in the broadest possible terms: What is there? What is it like?A person who studies metaphysics is called a metaphysicist or a metaphysician. The metaphysician attempts to clarify the fundamental notions by which people understand the world, e.g., existence, objects and their properties, space and time, cause and effect, and possibility. A central branch of metaphysics is ontology, the investigation into the basic categories of being and how they relate to each other. Another central branch of metaphysics is cosmology, the study of the totality of all phenomena within the universe.Prior to the modern history of science, scientific questions were addressed as a part of metaphysics known as natural philosophy. The term science itself meant "knowledge" of, originating from epistemology. The scientific method, however, transformed natural philosophy into an empirical activity deriving from experiment unlike the rest of philosophy. By the end of the 18th century, it had begun to be called "science" to distinguish it from philosophy. Thereafter, metaphysics denoted philosophical enquiry of a non-empirical character into the nature of existence. Some philosophers of science, such as the neo-positivists, say that natural science rejects the study of metaphysics, while other philosophers of science strongly disagree.Metaphysics as a discipline was a central part of academic inquiry and scholarly education even before the age of Aristotle, who considered it "the Queen of Sciences." Its issues were considered[by whom?] no less important than the other main formal subjects of physical science, medicine, mathematics, poetics and music. Since the beginning of modern philosophy during the seventeenth century, problems that were not originally considered within the bounds of metaphysics have been added to its purview, while other problems considered metaphysical for centuries are now typically subjects of their own separate regions in philosophy, such as philosophy of religion, philosophy of mind, philosophy of perception, philosophy of language, and philosophy of science.For the last one hundred years, the dominant metaphysics has without a doubt been materialistic monism. Type identity theory, token identity theory, functionalism, reductive physicalism, nonreductive physicalism, eliminative materialism, anomalous monism, property dualism, epiphenomenalism and emergence are just some of the candidates for a scientifically informed account of the mind. (It should be noted that while many of these positions are dualisms, none of them are substance dualism.)Prominent recent philosophers of mind include David Armstrong, Ned Block, David Chalmers, Patricia and Paul Churchland, Donald Davidson, Daniel Dennett, Fred Dretske, Douglas Hofstadter, Jerry Fodor, David Lewis, Thomas Nagel, Hilary Putnam, John Searle, John Smart, Ludwig Wittgenstein, and Fred Alan Wolf.
