In this episode, Riley and Christopher explore the unseen world—the realm of all that which we cannot see, hear, smell, taste, or touch, but which is real—including unseen metaphysical realities and epistemological or socially constructed ones. Some of the most significant realities that form part of a fully human experience, from love—an unseen but metaphysical reality—to marriage—an epistemological but every-much-as-real one, are part of the unseen world. While science only deals with what can be quantified, the unseen world gives life its greatest quality. As Hamlet said to Horatio, “There are more things in heaven and earth, . . . , than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”
