That is, you have your personl understanding of the universe (which you presume is correct). That constitutes an explanation of the information you have been provided since your birth. It is an explanation: a reason why things are the way they are. As such, it includes the idea of causality. That is to say, an explanation is a summary of what to expect in what situations. The situation is the cause and what happens is the effect.

Csusality is entirely a mentally generated relationship and need have nothing to do with reality.

Have fun -- Dick
