I see the list is in alphabetical order. Should i search terms inside the A-B range? This is an exhaustive list?

The list is alphabetical because I'm creating it by using the 'search by letter' feature in the EG. I've only gone through the A's and partly into the B's so no, it's not exhaustive. I've also left a few items out for one reason or another, but I have not left any metaphysics related terms (as they relate to the other thread) out.

Typo in the e. Is not bold.

The bolding is just something I've created here in the forum to make it easier to read.

This concept looks obsolete and looks like is only about Xenos.
Xenobiology and Astrobiology are different things.

Astrobiology is actually a RL thing. I'm not quite sure why you're saying it's obsolete or whether or not it is different from Xenobiology matters. Can you explain more fully please?

This looks like two definitions in one.

It does. However, that is how it is currently written. I have no problem with changing it. That is why we're doing this, after allSmile

You could and hyperlink in etheric plane in case you didn't put the two miceoarticles on glossary.

Possibly. Or this and other metaphysical terms might be placed into a mini-Glossary within one of the larger Topics or Articles on the topic.

The idea of memes in RL is highly discredited by now. I think this definition of a behaviour looks esoteric or just plainly weird or deterministic.

The idea of memetics is alive and well in OA, although how closely it resembles the RL version isn't clear. At some point we should probably update the relevant article to put some history behind this as well as some indications of how it differs from the RL version.
