Have you ever taken an event you had an opinion over and traced the line of cause and effect back to the root cause? If you have then you've either decided; Tao is defective or cause and effect is a false model.
Case One: Tao is defective. Now this case was a bit of a joke but maybe you exist. (see later).
Case Two. Cause and effect is a false model.
What is causing me to write this? You need a me. So it's my Mum's fault!?
For any cause-effect relationship you assume two points, the cause and the effect, but all causes in this model are the effect of a previous cause. You must eventually conclude that there was some beginning to all of this and it made a mistake. Ah you see, you did fit Case Number One after all.
No ok, back to Case Two. There can not be a complete cause and effect model that does not have a creator and a defective one at that. Cause and effect is flawed as an explanation to anything. This being the case you can not blame anyone or anything for the way they are.
I've said in many ways and at many times that: Life just seems to happen, and you can't alter it one bit. The only thing you can alter, if even this, is your attitude to "what is".
Seems to be this, seems to be that... Love it it or hate it, seems to be the only choice you have.
