In 1078 Anselm of Canterbury proposed an argument for the existence of God, which became known as ontological proof. It based on the finding that the non-existence of God led to a contradiction. Consequently, the existence of God appears as a logical necessity. Though this conclusion is nowadays critized as being meaningless, it is still object of philosophical and theological considerations. In this paper a modern, that is, a scientific Metaphysics is presented that led to the same conclusion like the ontological proof but on a quite different ground. It shows that in a physical universe which bases explicitly on a invisible foundation (i.e. the ONE), the existence of the ONE turns out to be a logical necessity, because otherwise this universe would be internally of contradictory nature.
