Re: Principle of causality does not apply to nothing

No it's not, no it doesn't. That's basically a physics question but if you want a metaphysical answer, deconstruction according to logic and purpose. The base of the ToE in physics is Delta (change over time), because all physical things, mass, matter, gravity, energy, causality, the speed of light...

Re: Principle of causality does not apply to nothing

That is naive and prevents discovery of how nature actually works. But tell me then, given what you think you know, what do you reduce physics to as elemental properties. No it's not, no it doesn't. That's basically a physics question but if you want a metaphysical answer, deconstruction according ...

Re: Principle of causality does not apply to nothing

Numbers are descriptive of relationships of quantity and quantity only exists to the extent we differentiate/measure things for reasons. That is naive and prevents discovery of how nature actually works. And how does 'nature', itself, actually work? But tell me then, given what you think you know, ...

Re: Principle of causality does not apply to nothing

What better than to recognize that "absolutely nothing" suffices as the particular identity to "no cause" then! There's no such thing as no cause either. Just like nothing, there may be always a particular lack of cause; "I ordered that cheeseburger for no reason." isn't actually no cause at all. N...

Re: Principle of causality does not apply to nothing

Good to see you back by the way I will no longer be posting on the forum as it is not actually necessary for me to do so any more Was it 'necessary' previously to post on this forum? I will however carry on trying to understand you as best as I can based upon what you post here But you would NEVER ...

Re: Principle of causality does not apply to nothing

There is no reason to believe there is a first cause just because everything has a cause. There is no reason to believe that beginnings or ends exist in Actuality. Y'all are tilting at ancient windmills. No wind blows there. There was a beginning sine otherwise you are dealing with a regress. There...

If anything can be argued, then it is, literally, not even worth arguing about.

Re: Principle of causality does not apply to nothing

True. In fact, change is not possible if something to nothing was not possible. How does this 'logically' follow? Something to nothing has NOT yet occurred, unless some proof is provided. But until then 'change', itself, NOT 'not possible'. Change is not just possible but is in fact impossible to N...

Re: Principle of causality does not apply to nothing

The PoC means that you need an agent to cause, by cause I mean to go from one state of affair to another one. So, are you saying that to go from one state of affair to another then an agent is needed to cause this? Yes. If yes, then what do you propose is 'that agent'? You can call it God. I can ca...

Re: Principle of causality does not apply to nothing

There is no reason to believe there is a first cause just because everything has a cause. This is True because the cause of EVERY thing comes from TWO things. These two things have BOTH ALWAYS existed, and because of EACH's own, ALWAYS, existence this, in a sense, causes thee "other". There is no r...

Re: Principle of causality does not apply to nothing

Nothing is absence of any thing which make complete sence. 'Nothing is absence of ANY thing' might make complete sense, but this 'nothing' exists in imagination only. Not if we accept that there was a beginning. For 'us' to accept that there was a beginning, then, for 'me' anyway, there would NEED ...

Re: Principle of causality does not apply to nothing

What do you think or believe 'it' is that I am trying to 'understand' here EXACTLY? Have you forgotten that it is 'you' who has developed some 'theory', which you want 'understood'. I do NOT do 'theory', as they are completely UNNECESSARY. Especially considering what is directly in front of you. Th...

Re: Principle of causality does not apply to nothing

I can't respond to all of the linked post because it would require literal proof that I cannot simply present without a step-by-step reconstruction. What I've done on my own so far is to develop a set theory but by using only one 'constant': the empty set, as referencing "nothing" OR any possible u...

Re: Principle of causality does not apply to nothing

I'm hoping you share the meaning of "argument" to be "the formal set of premises that demonstrate a distinct conclusion" (a 'logical' argument). Under this assumption, obviously one cannot infer THAT this could not be the case should they no longer be alive to judge. But you can infer this from lif...
