Turing Machine Comes From Causalty

There are many ways how to implement Turing machine http://en2.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turing_machine but I think that it originally comes from causalty. Causalty can be conditional and so
if
if
implements AND because second if comes from the first and
if
if
implements OR because second if doesn't come from the first. We must be able to change every item, if the items are 0 and 1 then 0 to 1 and vice versa. And there must be a possibility for iteration, what may be given by GOTO (last in the chain of events must be able to cause the first). Many systems can implement Turing machine. It comes from causalty, but a kind of causalty where the events happen sequentially, so it is not the only possibility. And very unlikely possibility for most things in nature because if they happened sequentially then they would happen much too slowly (though we can model simultaneous events sequentially).
