No, metaphysics is asking, what is the darkness? What is the cat?

This might stir controversy, but I would argue science is looking for a black cat with a flashlight with distorted vision. Too often we assume our observation abilities are perfect.

Psychology asks, why do you want to find the cat?

...or 'How does the cat make you feel?'
Actually, more specifically,
'On a one to five Likert scale, rate how anxious the cat makes you feel with one being the most anxious and five being the least.'

Whoever made that obviously doesn't know what metaphysics is. Metaphysics is higher and purer than science.

This is my first time here, and I find this thread really interesting. Philosophy is not really my thing, however, I'd love to know more about this subject with your help guys :)!
