Metaphysics and Quantum Physics, An Analogy

A Tract Book Essay

By

Anthony J. Fejfar, J.D., Esq., Coif

Plato and Aristotle both discuss the metaphysical concept of Being

in their academic works of philosophy. As I define Being, Being is an

unrestricted act of understanding, Form of Form, The Good. Being is

sometime thought to be like an Energy field, not unlike the idea of Ether

that 19th century scientists used. Some are skeptical about Being, arguing

that it does not exist. The typical response is that Being is the Unmoved

Mover, and as such is a necessary concept needed to avoid an illogical,

result of infinite regress.

Here, however, I would like to make a different argument for the

existence of Being. I argue that Being or the Being Field, is analogous to

the Quantum Field. The Quantum Field has been scientifically proven to

exist outside of Space-Time, and by analogy it can be argued that Being or

the Being Field, exists outside of Space-Time. Similarly, the Quantum

Field is said to involve meaning, and by analogy it can be argued that

Being or the Being Field involves meaning or understanding. The Quantum

1
Field is said to involve Moderate Relativism, and by analogy it can be

argued that Being or the Being Field involves Moderate Relativism.

Therefore, it appears that, arguing by analogy, an argument can be

made that Being does indeed exist.
