“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

If You Want to Talk Causality

I'm having a discussion or two about my OOO topic of choice, causality.

If you want to talk about it with me, can I suggest first that you study quantum theory?

Any contemporary theory of causality worth its salt needs to account for the stuff that happens down there.

I recommend an actual QT textbook. Einstein's favorite was David Bohm, Quantum Theory (1954), so you can start there.

Read that first then get back to me.
