While reading the book, Baboon Metaphysics, I came to the conclusion that there is more to Baboons than what meets the eye. Cheney and Seyfarth do a wonderful job on exploring the complex and mysterious world of Baboons, focusing in on their social structures, relationships, and even touching on aspects of a possible language.

That's the subject of their book "Baboon Metaphysics," which is now out in paperback. Dorothy Cheney and Robert Seyfarth are a husband and wife team who've studied baboons in. This book is a more simplified version of his other major work God Speaks, which gives the most intelligent and spiritually complex explanations for evolution, involution and universal metaphysics I've ever seen.

Metaphysics (Greek: τὰ μετὰ τὰ φυσικά; Latin: Metaphysica, lit: "the beyond the physical") is one of the principal works of Aristotle and the first major work of the branch of philosophy with the same name.

The principal subject is "being qua being," or being insofar as it is being. It examines what can be asserted about any being insofar as it is and not because of any.
