What is Rob Hamilton's "Anything Goes" School of Metaphysics?

Does God exist?  What is consciousness?  How can we know what is real?  Rob Hamilton’s “Anything Goes” School of Metaphysics provides an approach to understanding how we experience the world around us that gives us the platform we need to answer these questions and many more.
