To see the intelligible nature of anything is to know what cannot be otherwise. This usually leaves contingency intact: a gerbil can’t be a non-gerbil but it can cease to be altogether. But it seems that metaphysics is an extended discourse on the exception to this since being cannot not be. The varied responses to this are the deepest fault lines in metaphysics.
