"Origin of man now proved. -- Metaphysics must flourish. - He who
understands baboon would do more toward Metaphysics than Locke." ---
[Charles] Darwin, Notebook M, August 16, 1838

Dictionary:

Metaphysics: 1. a. (1): A division of philosophy that includes ontology
and cosmology (2): philosophy made up of ontology and epistemology (3):
Ontology b: the more abstruce philosophical sciences.

A priori speculation upon questions that are unanswerable to scientific
observation, analysis, or experiment.
