There is nothing more frightful than ignorance in action.

Yanno.......... we witches believe that we are past, present and future all at the same time.   Merely because one affects the other and always has.   Don't make too much of that.  I've no intention of explaining my witch-ness here.   :rollin:

You are eternally present in my mind too. I know how you think, I read your mind, it was easy.  Did you know I got straight A's in my metaphysical class, I read the mind of my teacher.  :lol:  Solitary



I'm sure you'll get some rational responses to your post.  Hopefully soon.

The Universe is estimated to be roughly ~13.7 billion years old, you can't go further back in time than that, because beyond that there's a very known threshold event, called the Big Bang. Unless you want to talk about atemporal causes which makes for much nonsensical language.

Einstein's special relativity says that two nonlocal events cannot be in causal contact. This means that one nonlocal event cannot be the cause of another nonlocal event. Think about that! Most of science and virtually all of theology are based on cause and effect. In Newtonian physics, a force is needed to cause a change in momentum. In medicine, certain things cause cancer, in theology, God causes everything. However, there are events in the universe that cannot be connected by cause and effect, not even in Mass Effect.
You're confusing a few things.  Medicine in the Andromeda Galaxy doesn't cure illness in the Milky Way Galaxy.  (And that's a terribly trivialized use of "nonlocal".)  Locality doesn't violate causation.
