    Abstract: In part one (of two parts) I show that any purely physical-scientific account of reality must be deficient. Instead, I present a general-ontological framework that should prove fruitful when discussing or resolving philosophic controversies; indeed, I show that the paradigm readily resolves the controversy "Why is there something rather than nothing?" In part two, now informed by the previously established general ontology, I explore the issue of immortality. The analysis leads me to make this claim: Entropy is a fake. Apparently the physical-scientific resurrection of all dead persons is our ethically-required common-task. Suspended-animation, superfast-rocketry, and seg-communities (Self-sufficient Extra-terrestrial Green-habitat communities, or O'Neill communities) are identified as important first steps.
