A central branch of metaphysics is ontology , the investigation into the basic categories of being and how they relate to one another.

Latin
word occultus "clandestine, hidden, secret") is "knowledge of the hidden."

Psychological Trauma
PSYCHOLOGICAL TRAUMA is a type of damage to the mind that occurs as a result of a severely distressing event. Trauma is often the result of an overwhelming amount of stress that exceeds one's ability to cope, or integrate the emotions involved with that experience. A traumatic event involves one's experience, or repeating events of being overwhelmed that can be precipitated in weeks, years, or even decades as the person struggles to cope with the immediate circumstances, eventually leading to serious, long-term negative consequences. However, trauma differs between individuals, according to their subjective experiences. People will react to similar events differently. In other words, not all people who experience a potentially traumatic event will actually become psychologically traumatized
