  THAT INSPIRED NUMEROUS TRANSLATIONS BY
  SUPERB SCHOLARS AND POETS AMONG WHOM WAS
  THE GREAT ENGLISH POET POPE
  lit+ METAMORPHOSES [13] by OVID [#] book i,1
       marvelously translated by A. D. Melville

  ALL ONE
  WELL NAMED
  CHAOS

  hx> METAPHOR implies opp to LITERALLY but
      preservation of RESEMBLANCE or SIMILARITY thus
  implies PARTIAL or INCOMPLETE METAMORPHOSIS or
          alteration of the PHYSIS often to
  enhance by ANALOGY or SYMBOL the inherent
  NATURE of "A THING"
  hx> METAPHYSICS implies BEYOND NATURE thus beyond
      the bounds of scientific proof thus
  IDEAS BEYOND PROOF or A FORM OF DOGMATISM  sug> RELIGION
  sc> METAPHYSICS BECAME A BRANCH OF SCIENCE
      INTERESTED IN ISSUES REMOVED FROM
  THE PERCEPTION OF THE SENSES thus issues
  BEYOND THOSE OF THE "NATURAL" and PHYSICAL "NATURE"
  note SCIENTIFIC METHODS ARE NOT APPLICABLE TO
       ETHICAL OR METAPHYSICAL QUESTIONS
  note THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD FACED WITH THE QUESTION
       "WHAT IS THE MEANING OF LIFE?"
  leads to the answer "NONE" in contrast to RELIGION
  note IT IS POSSIBLE TO SCIENTIFICALLY CONCLUDE THAT
       MAN AND MANKIND REPRESENT A COSMIC DUST PARTICLE
  lit+ it was noted by Max WEBER [#] how
       science "DISENCHANTS"
  note HUMAN BEHAVIOR IS THE PRODUCT OF A BLEND OF
       "REASONS" AND "MORAL JUDGMENTS"
  THUS BEHAVIOR IS BEYOND ANALYSIS BY SCIENCE
  IDEAS OF "TIME" "GOOD" "GOD" "FREEDOM" ...

      SOCIAL NOTIONS  notably those by
  KANT [#]   HEGEL [#]  MARX [#] also
  note how METAPHYSICAL PRINCIPLES LED TO INHUMANE
       ACTS ON THE BASIS OF "TRANSCENDENTAL" IDEAS or
  IDEAS THAT MADE "LOGICAL"
  DEGENERATE UNNATURAL or INHUMAN ACTS mostly by
  STATES ENFORCING METAPHYSICAL THINKING
  see> USSR  see> NAZI
  hx> EPICURUS [#]  GOETHE [#]  and others
      rejected METAPHYSICS and anticipated the
  possibility of ABUSES BY METAPHYSICAL ENTHUSIASTS

       A CURSE OF HUMANITY
