    Much of religion concerns itself with two thing:
    Cosmology, and related topics like existence.
    Psychology, ways of life, and how to to best live.

    Jung based much of his work on ancient Mythos and avoided making it academically relevant to contemporary religions. So let's keep this topic to philosophy of mind, theory of mind and other minds by categorically stating that anything that has to do with the following concepts are metaphysics and physics: consistency/omniscient, completeness/omnipresent, dark-matter, quantum mechanics, atoms, waves, light. There are other thing as well, but just avoid the general problem of ascribing mental states or information as coupled to physical processes as if names and concepts are more important than the feelings and learning to know and recognise.

    In many religions, one have aspects of the Shield of Trinity that perhaps can best be explained as Freudian, id, ego and superego -- your own shadow, your sense of identity, and your body-emotions in form of an over bearing father with demands about food and family. When it comes to cognitive functions, there are several examples of systems with 12 + 1 systems, 12 cognitive functions and a global consciousness or self-awareness. Which are comparable to left and right hemisphere systems, where one talks of 6 + 1.

    By and large, this is perhaps supposed to be a lot of fun, my mind, your mind, and in our language and philosophy there are similar names for the same things where the words, names and concepts are also evolved and developed into feeling a bit like what it is about as poetic form and relation.

    Does this sound like the start of something that can be called metaphysics proper as separate from culture and language?

    Yous, Deus and Gods; which are your cognitive functions? Might perhaps be what some of the more sane aspects of Hinduism is still talking about to this day.
