Causality I 102
Causality / physics / theory / Vollmer: causality is not present in physical theories - neither cause nor causal principle nor necessity - Russell: function rather than causality - Carnap: totality of the premises a statement.
I 104
Causality / Vollmer: necessary condition: energy transfer.
I 105
But e.tr. is not a sufficient condition - E.g. energetic process, which is not called causal: thunder and lightning.
I 108
The cause must not provide the total energy: E.g. butterfly effect.
