Your ad hominem is level 3rd grade. Incidentally, that makes it head and shoulders above most.

Metaphysics is a set of true statements that we build on top of what is obvious, physics.

Is this definition necessary and sufficient?

Metaphysics is not only how we can know stuff but also ideas about existence itself.
Exploring ideas of what exists is basic to proper ethics.

Please see Heidegger for how your subjective experience in your habitat is the only truth you can know.

I already agree with the statement 90%. But that would run the risk of being regarded as being subjectivist, relativist and overly sceptic?

Idealist but not subjectivist. The only transcendental ethics are good, truth, and beauty. Even justice is hammered out in experience.

Could you elaborate further on that statement please? The only transcendental ethics?
Why does ethics have to be transcendental? Why good truth beauty?

I mean good, truth, and beauty transcend definitions, and are entirely subjective.
