The Source of Causality
The source of causality is matter and energy. All events which are
actions and reactions which are relationships among people/things which
are matter require energy. The concept of energy requires the principle
that no person or thing is moved or changed nor any event caused without
energy. Gods and goddesses, and demons and demonnesses, if they exist,
must use energy to cause effects as movement and change among people/things/events.
First Law of Thermodynamics: Matter
and energy cannot be destroyed, only changed in form. Matter and energy
were never created: they have always existed, exist now, and always will
Matter can be converted into energy
and energy can be converted into matter. Confirmed/verified by
Dr. Albert Einstein's E = mc2 [originally m = E/c2]
where E = energy, m = mass, and c2 = the speed
of light [186,000 miles per second] squared [c x c = 186,000mi./sec. x
Causality consists of chains of causes-and-effects
leading back to the source of causality.
The source of causality was not caused but has always
existed in the past, exists now in the present, and is expected to exist
in the future. To ask what caused the source of causality only indicates
that the person asking the question does not understand the concept of
the source of causality and the related principle that the source of causality
causes causality but is not caused and is therefore not an effect. Whereas
chains of causes-and-effects lead back to the source of causality, the
source of causality is the beginning and the end of all chains of causality.
To think that all people/things/events including the source of causality
have causes would require asking the question of what caused the source
of causality. This question is irrational because the source of causality
cannot be caused—it is what causes all causes that cause effects. This
assertion is not an opinion but is an awareness the fact which is the principle
that the source of causality is the beginning and end of all causal sequences.
Therefore, the substance of causality—matter/energy--is not caused but
instead causes people/things/events which are forms of matter/energy.
Question: How can a thing/event cause other things/events
without itself being caused?
Answer: The nature of matter/energy causes causality:
matter/energy can cause effects, has caused effects, and
will cause effects.
Matter/energy consists of elementary particles
and their related energy, which cause subatomic particles (electrons,
protons, neutrons, etc.), which cause atoms, which cause molecules,
which cause inorganic and organic things/events. Elementary
particles whizzing around and crashing into other elementary particles
can cause subatomic particles which can whiz around and cause atoms which
can combine to cause molecules which can combine to cause other things
and events. The fact that all this happens is not a mystery: how
it happens is the subject of science, and those explanations of how it
happens which are mysterious now may not be mysterious in the future.
Matter/energy is real—it is the source of causality.
 The First Law of Thermodynamics [the study of heat]: Matter and
energy are the “stuff” of which all things and events of reality are made.
Matter and energy cannot be destroyed but only changed in form. Matter
can be changed into energy and energy can be changed into matter. Matter
and energy are therefore eternal—without beginning nor end.
The First Law of Thermodynamics was proven by Dr.
Albert Einstein by E = mc2 [E = Energy; m = mass; c = the speed of light;
c2 = the speed of light squared] and m = E/c2 [Einstein’s original equation],
which state that matter can be converted into energy (the process of fission:
atomic bombs, nuclear energy), and energy can be converted into matter
(the process of fusion: hydrogen bombs).
