Pataphysics: The science of things that don’t exist

4 posts in this topic

I came across the term pataphysics in relation to the surrealist art movement of the 1920s and 30s.  It was basically described as being as far removed from metaphysics as metaphysics is removed from physics.  

Most of what I read about it consisted of jokes and trolling, but I’m wondering if it could also have some deeper philosophical and spiritual implications.

It got me thinking that traditional science is by definition focused on what’s real, but when you start getting into non-duality/absolute infinity, the distinction between reality and imagination begins to break down.

It would therefore make sense to also have a science of the imagination, since, at least from the limited dualistic perspective, it’s a domain orders of magnitude larger than what’s normally thought of as reality.

If anyone knows more about this, I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on it.  I’m also really curious what @Leo Gura would think of it!
