I would say agreement, based on logic, of what things "seem" like, and what we can project as being both necessary and reasonable. Suggesting that either there is a God outside of the Universe, or a limit to an expanding Universe coming from nothing such as the Big Bang, are both bad Metaphysics. Good metaphysics I think keeps, or helps, you to not develop crazy theories that may have effective models but are still wrong, even if it is hard to determine that. Dark Matter, Dark Energy and the Big Bang are ad hoc failures because they follow the data blindly.

Walk The Circle

This Bagua circle walking form integrates the breath with the steps — breathing in with the turning in step, breathing out with the straight step; and this breath with the hand lead posture — 8 hand positions plus two, behind lower back for kidneys, squeezing the lower organs, pressing down on the lower organs, contracting the solar plexis, squeezing the heart center, pressing down on the lungs, twisting the spine, opening and closing the neck/upper spine.

Time indeed does not exist, it is a construct as you say, a useful one for modeling but one horribly misused by science. Time is nothing other than our perception of change. Henri Bergson explains time quite well as duration and change, in short. The misuse of time I would say is dangerous paradigmatically in convincing people that one can change the past, or even travel in time - this is nonsence which most people know instinctively. Cheers

Part 2 Qigong practice

Qigong (/ˈtʃiːˈɡɒŋ/),[1] qi gong, chi kung, chi ‘ung, or chi gung (simplified Chinese: 气功; traditional Chinese: 氣功; pinyin: qìgōng; Wade–Giles: ch‘i kung; lit.life-energy cultivation’) is a system of coordinated body-posture and movement, breathing, and meditation[2] used for the purposes of health, spirituality, and martial-arts training.[3] With roots in Chinese medicine, philosophy, and martial arts, qigong is traditionally viewed by the Chinese and throughout Asia as a practice to cultivate and balance qi (pronounced approximately as “chi” or “chee”), translated as “life energy”.[4] From Wikipedia

Part 1 Morning Warmup; part 3 will be Ba Gua Circle Walking, an internal practice using the breath with postures while walking the circle.
