  • n. A description of beings, their nature and essence.
  • n. That division of geography which is concerned with the responses of organic beings to their physiographic surroundings or environment.

“a term for composing works that help illuminate the existence and relationships between objects.” – Trevor Owens

“By word root “ontography” should presumably pertain to, as is fitting for a ghost tale, the attempt to formally describe being, not necessarily non-human, but perhaps as is suggested above, of the nature of things in themselves and to eachother, on their ‘own’ natural physical terms as it were; the noumenal, or the spirit body.” – Sam
