What is a possible being?

Everything else can be considered a being, from a hypothetical being to God, because, after all, God exists and is infinitely capable of existing. However, since we are dealing with possibilities here, there is no reason why something should not lack any properties that would otherwise define it as a being.

Thus, a possible being is anything that could possibly exist, including non-beings such as ghosts or gods. A necessary being is a being that must exist, like God. An impossible being is a being that cannot exist, like Santa Claus.

It is important to note that although ghosts and gods are possible beings, they are not necessary beings. That is, they could have been never born. Therefore, they are not eternal. However, this has no effect on our discussion of possibilities since nothing prevents them from continuing to exist even if they were never born.

Also, just because something could exist does not mean that it will exist. For example, there is a slight chance every year that Earth will be hit by a huge asteroid that will destroy us. This event would not only be possible, but likely, but it still doesn't happen.

Similarly, there is a possibility that God did not create humans in his image.

What exactly is an existed?

The condition or reality of having being, particularly outside of human cognition, as opposed to nonexistence, the existence of other universes. B the way of being that is shared by all modes of being. C: being in relation to a limiting condition or under a certain aspect.

Existentialism is a philosophical movement that arose in France between 1905 and 1925. It can be traced back to the work of French writers such as Albert Camus, Michel Surya, and Henri de Lubac. Existentialists believe that mankind has the ability and duty to determine its own meaning of life and exist as responsible beings who have chosen how they will live their lives.

An existentialist would say that there are two ways to view the world: objectively or subjectively. An objective view of the world is one that does not involve any judgment or evaluation. It simply observes what is happening in time and space. A subjective view of the world involves making judgments about what is happening. For example, if someone was observing a movie, they might see the characters acting out their roles within the story. But if that same person were part of the movie themselves, then they would be able to experience it differently - perhaps even experiencing more than just the scenes that were unfolding before their eyes. This person would be using their mind to interpret what was going on around them and giving meaning to it all.

What does "all things are possible" mean?

However, with God, everything is possible. In this case, it is conceivable since God is capable of doing anything he desires for him to save a rich guy. Because God lives and loves us, everything is possible. Nothing can prevent him from carrying out his wishes.

Possible means able or willing. So, something is possible if there is no obstacle in the way. If there were obstacles, then they would have to be removed before something could happen. For example, let's say that I want to go to Chicago for vacation. It is possible because there is an airplane which flies very fast. However, there are obstacles such as money, so we will not be going anywhere by plane.

Something is conceivable when you can imagine it happening. For example, it is conceivable that aliens come to Earth because humans have seen other planets and galaxies using telescopes. They may come in response to messages we have sent into space.

Conceivable means able to be imagined or thought of. So, something is conceivable if you can imagine it happening.

Imaginable means able to be imagined or thought of. So, something is imaginable if you can imagine it happening.

Do merely possible worlds exist?

Possible worlds exist—they are just as real as our world. Possible worlds are the same as our reality in that they differ in content but not in kind. Possible worlds are irreducible entities in their own right and cannot be reduced to anything more fundamental. Actuality is illustrative. An actual event has a real effect on what happens next; a possible event could have happened instead.

Possible worlds were first used by Leibniz in 1697 to explain why all possible situations of an event always occur exactly once. He called these unique events "actual" and said that only actual events have true consequences. All possible situations of an event will resemble an actual situation in some ways (because they are similar configurations of the universe) so some possibility must remain unfulfilled even after taking into account multiple occurrences of the same event. For example, if I lift my finger to lift a pencil off the desk, then it will stay on the desk; if I don't, then it will go up in the air. No matter how many times I do or don't lift my finger, the result will be the same. This shows that there is something about this particular lifting action that makes it impossible for me to lift my finger twice. Even though other things might have been done instead, this one specific act was necessary for the outcome to come about as it did. Therefore, this one act has true consequences that last beyond single occasions.

What is conceivable but may not be metaphysically possible?

Something that is theoretically viable (i.e., not a contradiction and thus conceivable) may not be physically achievable (i.e., it may be impossible in our current world). Just because we can envision the mind floating about without a body does not imply that it is physically conceivable. There are limits to the physical laws of our universe, and if a thing goes beyond those limits it cannot happen. A person who has lost their mind may still come into contact with the real world through other people or objects they can perceive.

Here are some other examples of things that are conceivable but not metaphysically possible:

A tree falling in a forest and no one there to hear it - Is this conceivable? Metaphysically possible? Because trees don't fall of their own accord- They are felled by lightning or blown over by wind.

If something is conceivable then it is also possible in theory, but not necessarily possible in practice. For example, traveling to the moon is a desirable goal that many people have attempted but only a few have succeeded in doing so as of now. So, it is possible in theory but not in practice.
