But P2 does not have the same relationship with P1. You can talk about the ‘causal future’ of P1 in other words in the same way that you are not able to talk about the ‘causal past’ of P2 – simply because (in our Universe) events do not have ‘causal pasts’. Einsteinian space–time in fact delineates the geometry of both space and the order of events. From any occurrence, the effects of that occurrence throughout subsequent time form a ‘cone’, extending into the fourth, temporal, dimension. Within the cone, all is causal and logical.

After all, these actions must almost by definition be unconscious. The skill sinks in with the training, the hours of practice, and the guts and determination that is needed to be in the top 1% of any professional sport.

But this does not mean that animals or humans are not self-aware.

But they still assumed that this movement was relative to an ether. But in Einstein’s relativity, the old ether was abolished and replaced by space–time, a sort of conceptual super-ether, through which motion and the attracting force of gravity can be plotted. Because it was impossible to measure one’s velocity relative to the ether (the old ether) then the whole notion was flawed. Instead, we all have our own personal time (in fact each independently moving point in space–time has its own personal time; my left foot’s is slightly different from why is time so weird?
