Causality

6 Oct

We accept that time can go infinitely into the future. Cause effect, cause and effect, over and over infinity into the future. What if then, that applies backward in time as well? Effect and cause, effect and cause, over and over infinitely into the past? Then there would be no need for a first cause. First cause defies logic anyway, as it would then render causality useless and meaningless. First cause would imply that causality is not a hard-and-fast law, but something that happens only now and then. First cause is a cause with no effect, which again, would disprove causality as a constant law of the universe. Infinite causes into the past would not only do away with the concept of first cause, but make “now” a sort of moot point. “now” is always evolving anyway, it comes and goes. It’s more a concept than a reality. More an idea than a tangible thing.

To put it in a nutshell: just as there is no end to everything, there is no beginning to everything. It all just..is. And was. And will always be.

    Nice try, but effect without cause as equally as impossible as a first cause uncaused. So there’s two basic, logical explanations for the origin of the universe, both impossible. And yet, here we are.
