Causality (mirror) by Paul Butterfield Play

Why aren't there more essays like this, on the nature of causality? Causality is the most powerful and important concept in forming a philosophical, metaphysical or spiritual worldview. Yet hardly anyone talks about it.

Paul starts with a full, logical definition of causation. On that solid basis, he then explores popular misconceptions about cause and effect found in science, philosophy, religion, and everyday life.

What I like most about this essay is that it's not just theoretical. Not celebrating his birthday, for example, practically demonstrated thought about causality and self. An interesting series!

To a Wild Young Genius Play

On the common, startlingly insane issues preventing people travelling down the path to wisdom. Topics like: sex, religion, women, religious atheism, academia, scientific materialism, work, music, drugs, art, politics, fantasy, and family.
