Causes II 44
Cause/Physics/Vollmer: is nowhere on in physics - only effect. - This indeed appears as a physical quantity, but very limited (energy multiplied by time). - Especially natural philosophy refrains from causes - Without signaling no effect - signal: thus energy is transferred.
II 48
A definite cause is never necessary. - A cause can always be halved. - Therefore VsTradition: "cause and effects balance each other" is wrong.
II 49
We also speak of a cause when no energy transfer takes place: - E.g. the elastic collision of two equally heavy and equally fast balls will transfer energy - both to keep their energy - There is only a momentum transfer. - Solution: there a conserved quantity is transferred.
