The book is meant to provide answers to questions like: What is metaphysics? What is its nature, role and relevance? Is it really possible? How does metaphysics provide us with a larger view of life and reality?

In our technological age, any dream of "going beyond" the findings of sense-experience, a variety of pragmatic inventions from space-craft to pocket computers emerged, that are understandably dismissed as precisely, a foolish idle dream and nothing more.

In contrast to the clear and verifiable statements, measurements, and laws of science; metaphysics seems to offer a collection of high-flown words and phrases shot through with vagueness and uncertainty. Still, as human beings, we do need to ask bigger questions! We need to explore fundamental issues. This philosophical endeavor is a modest attempt to raise the "why" questions, which form the basis of our physical and natural world. It poses questions larger than life! It provides perspectives on life and shows the necessary connection between physical realities and those beyond it.
