At the end of our last installment, concerned with the essence of life phenomena, we pre-acknowledged some of far-reaching consequences of the new approach, including the refutation of Darwinian evolution, along with refutations of many of the accompanying dogmas of Darwinism, such as "survival of the fittest". (Survival of the Most Harmonious, is more accurate.) Nevertheless, an accurate understanding of the implications of this new and more accurate paradigm, requires that a fundamental revision must occur, regarding our notions about causality itself. Let's start here by analyzing the topic of causality, as important to the novel paradigmatic view we propose. The wide outreach of this new paradigm, which coherently spans across many interdisciplinary fields (perhaps all of them), can be hardly overestimated.

As we know, Max Born's three assumptions regarding causality, as proposed by 1949, which attempted to define causality as a time-aligned chain of dependences, operating through spatial contiguities, have today, little more than a historical value. Later developments in Quantum physics clearly refuted the concept that any sort of space-contact is required for causal interactions. Quantum considerations extend the essence of causality far beyond the descriptive regime of regular sequences and correlations of natural phenomena., intrinsically focusing on the "how", rather then the "why", such serial connections would operate in nature.

Subsequently, collisions between different existentialist and deterministic arguments led to sterile debates regarding the actual prime originations of events. Causality, in QM, has proved to remain a basically elusive factor, intractable even to the most advanced explanatory attempts. Quantum tenets have encouraged various proposals of probabilistic causation. These proposals are often reflecting a poor understanding of the deterministic variables actually involved in causal relations, which are thus unfortunately reduced to a quite chancy set of considerations. More elaborate theoretical approaches have been proposed, which infer that interventional probabilities are deriving from conditional probabilities, for example, operating in Bayesian probability-based networks, according to certain directed non-cyclic graphs. So far, these kinds of proposals have led to even worse contradictions.

Eastern philosophy has proved to be not much more successful in comprehensively defining causality than its western scientifically correlated systems. For example, the Nyaya theory of causation implies that, besides invariability and unconditionality, a vectored orientation of causal chains is operating along the entropic timeline, which recognizes at the same time, accidental antecedents (Anyathasiddha), which are influencing the probabilities of a given outcome. As in most western concepts, in this kind of view of causality, causality depends upon time orientability (though not all spacetimes are fundamentally orientable). Only space-time intervals in a fused "space-time" are invariant with respect to given reference systems, while this fusion itself, is a highly controversial topic, from the subquantum perspective.

Special relativity rejects considerations of any "instant causal connection", as exceeding light velocity "constraints". This relativity theory-based constraint becomes a questionable conjecture, when viewed from the perspective of the many observed varieties of infinite velocity transmissions of Information. Such observations are allowed in the SubQuantum theory, in the form of the bilinear transformation solutions of the Maxwell equations. In this situation, the light velocity limitation in signal transmissions, as based on the Lorentz transformation solutions of the Maxwell equations, ceases to be the only determinant which is capable of implementing causal chains. Thus an exclusively Lorentzian interpretation is shown to be only one case, out of many possibilities, thus voiding all considerations of such, hitherto canonically defended, singular and exclusive mechanisms.

Studies of the causal structure of relativistic "space-time" have proved to be meaningless confusions, just as the search for some sort of "first cause", or "creation event", have proved to be. Explanatory attempts to theoretically circumvent such causal deadlocks, for example, by embedding universal causal chains in self-referential time loops, have also failed, since such attempts fall short of producing any acceptable suggestions regarding the original set-up conditions, which set of initial conditions, might be responsible for producing such time-looped constructions, leading to such fruitless mathematical conjectures as Calabi-Yau manifolds.

In fact, all such proposals of "initial conditions" are actually irrefutably and strongly denied by the already existing and physically proven sets of known physical laws (not theories), such as Newton's Laws. Such proposals are denied even more strongly by the Informational Universe paradigm, the SQ paradigm, which physically proves all such conjectures as unwarranted and irrelevant, while the SQ paradigm is quite conversant with Newton's Laws. Furthermore, the SQ paradigm actually succeeds in addressing the actual origins and internal dynamics which result in Newton's Laws, giving, for example, the actual causation and origination of gravitation, regarding which cause, Newton stated, "I frame no hypothesis." (So we have finally surpassed Newton, after all these years.)

Concepts as "first" or "last" events have to be left behind as logical nonsense (the Big Bang hypothesis and the thermal death of the Universe included). This decision has allowed scholars to accept the idea that "hidden variables", are operating universal causal systems. In order to bring deterministic theories into agreement with statistical experiment, these disputed hidden variables must be of a non-local consistency. This would imply the actions of deterministic agents, which are acting from outside the system, as evidenced in the PEAR experiments, for example. So far, the only viable concept which is able to satisfy this requirement is Bohm's concept of an "Implicate Order", which concept underpins the very SubQuantum theory which we defend.

Both macroscopic and Quantum-level consequences arise from the non-local hidden variables concept, which are consistent with Bohm's enfolded reality determinants, ultimately permitting Schrödinger's poor cat to avoid being aware of his embarrassing dual "alive and not-alive" condition.

Another obvious shortcoming in Quantum interpretations of causality implies that a "wrong-way time" is required for transcending the inherent inconsistencies in the Heisenberg Uncertainty relation, which demands that energy must be supplied from the future, defying commonly understood conservation laws. Feynman's "path integrals", which are expressing a canceling of oppositely directed vectors, bring into the picture an interacting "virtual reality", a mathematical abstraction which is dramatically and physically denied.

In order to cope with such counterintuitive arguments, a "Tetrahedron Model", has been proposed, which is describing the interactions between conservations of energy, symmetry, entropy and charge. In this view, time is the entropy-drive of matter and information, creating the causal linkage of matter's informational matrix, into its manifestation patterns. Quantum bits of information, are related, by this concept, to quantum bits of time and energy, conveying to them the value of a valuable precursor, when related to our subquantum world-view, where the fundamental infinitesimal entity is basically a multidimensional one, extending into Informational fields which operate beyond space-time constraints.

From this novel perspective, the concept that some process of particle/antiparticle symmetry-breaking must occur, at some given point in time, becomes a completely unnecessary assumption, placing mainstream cosmogenetic theories under heavy question marks. (This topic is beyond the scope of our present considerations and will be highlighted at future opportunities.) For the moment, let us only hint to J.A.Gowan's suggestion of placing Information at the central apex of the aforementioned tetrahedron diagram of causality, which apex had previously been wrongly ascribed to being the time axis, and thus devoid of entropic meanings. By placing information-driven causality at the primary tetrahedron apex, a new Information driven cosmology opens for serious consideration. This has far reaching consequences in biology, psychology and social studies also, giving a substantial scientific reason for reassessing the "Golden Rule" as being a fundamental principle of causality and symmetry, thus leading to a universal implementation of the Cosmic Harmony principle, in all ranges of manifestation and integration.

Along these lines, Esoteric teachings related to Karmic loops and interconnectedness pathways, become understandable in view of the new paradigms' requirements, with sensitive regulatory effects upon world-lines and events, crystallizing at their interaction points. The meaning and the overall status of causality is changed, while dogmatic upward-causation chains, as originating exclusively from ponderable matter, begin to break down.

The more paradoxical tenets of classical Quantum theory begin to fade out under the increasing pressure of new theoretical understandings. One of the most advanced such proposals has been quite recently forwarded by Russian theoretical physicist P.V. Kurakin. Its importance can be barely overestimated. Therefore we think that mentioning some of the details of this proposal, would be in place, in this quest for the essence of causality.

Kurakin's proposal, which introduces "hidden time" into Quantum computations, is consistent with Feynman's mutually canceling vectors, Gowan's primary causal tetrahedron apex, and the concept of non-local hidden variables, while at the same time, replacing the "wrong-way time" as implied by the already experimentally refuted Heisenberg Uncertainty. This "wrong-way time" produces an upside-down causal interaction vector, which vector, from our routine perspective, actually runs in null time. While amply debating the results of the Freedman-Clauser experiment, and J. Cramer's related comments, the Kurakin view supports nonlocal correlation patterns, as implied during Quantum transitions which are operating in a multidimensional time reference system. This view efficiently transcends current quantum time-limitations and paradoxes, which are commonly imposed by measuring time as being the number of energy quanta which are absorbed in a given point, when this sequence is normalized by some, randomly chosen, experimental coordinates.

Hidden variables must work at the level of the mathematical apparatus which describes physically undetectable transition tendencies, which are obeying principles which have been imposed upon the transitional system, with guiding tendencies which are originating from beyond the system. Such organizing vectors must then have a determining effect in Quantum processes. Obviously such determinants must operate in the subquantum regimes of Information, which by definition, are external to the time-embedded Quantum domain.

Previous to the more correct "removed-from-time" descriptions of the SQ paradigm, Cramer's transactional interpretations of such interactions, were designed to imply that mutually canceling fragments of informational vectors, are running in opposite time directions along some sort of supplementary time coordinates (additional to the physically detectable), thus allowing for such apparent reversed causality effects. Such reversed causality is certainly hidden from our currently available detection systems, which are severely limited by conventional time-flow constraints. When compared to the events running in the SubQuantum, trans-temporal, "hidden" range of variables, such views as retro-causation (backwards causality) receive competition, in the form of a more valid competing force than some of the previously considered classical models.

In this new light, the actual cause is not forced to precede the effect, in terms of normal time. The "When?" question is replaced by, "To what end?" This question presents a more fruitful approach towards developing more accurate descriptions of reality. This fundamental change in understanding causality, as ultimately being a removed-from-time, all-time-spanning, causality, has a tremendous shifting effect on the traditional world-views, which the SubQuantum view is challenging by now.

The "target" becomes the "cause", conveying a new drive for universal dynamics involved at all the manifestation levels, enfolded and unfolded, of the overarching cosmic harmony, whose implementing of itself turns out to be both the primary cause and the effect, as self-compensating coincident points in a Sentient Reality, ceaselessly generating itself, without implying a creation point or an end point.

In our next Issue, we will take under closer scrutiny a different category of operative connectedness, the acausal relationships, which are perfectly accommodated in the advanced perspective we've outlined here. Together with direct and reversed causality effects, acausal vectors, transcending normal time considerations, will be discussed as legitimate components of the inconceivably complex fabric of reality.
