 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 in estigation into the basic categories of being and how they relate to each other. Another central branch of metaphysics is cosmology, the study of the origin !if it has had one", fundamental structure, nature, and dynamics of the uni erse.
