The Answer To Everything

“If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the Universe.”

Carl Sagan

“Causality” is to look for events to explain why a chain of events happened. Because event “A” happened, Event “B” happened. Primarily though we use the Cause & Effect Model to get something to fit into our conceptual framework.

We cannot accept that things just happen!

Now let us start with this article itself.

I” write an Article share it on Social Media. “You” click the Link & Read it.

Let’s break the Cause & Effect:

Cause: “Me” writing an article and Sharing it on Social Media.

Effect: You clicking on the link and reading it.

But let’s dig a bit deeper into the Hierarchy of “Cause & Effect” now.

Let us begin with “Me” writing the article:

“Harshil Shah” writes & posts an article.

Why?

“Harshil Shah” likes thinking & writing.

Why?

“Harshil Shah” reads some stuff and gets Ideas.

Why?

“Harshil Shah’s” Parents Buy him lots of Books.

Why?

Well they Love Him.

Why?

“He” is their Offspring.

Why?

Well, they got Married & wanted a Child.

Why?

“Harshil’s Grandparents agreed that his Parents were a Good match for each other.

Why?

Both sets of “Harshil’s” Grandparents “vibed” & thought that his Parents were of age.

Why?

Because “Harshil’s” Grandparents were also married off similarly.

Why?

Because “Harshil’s” Great-Grandparents also “vibed”.

Why? (At this Question, we can skip the Great∞ -Grandparents and come to the below conclusion)

The Universe was Created.

Now let us take Social Media:

“Harshil Shah” shares the Article on Social Media

Why?

WordPress, Facebook, Google & Twitter exist.

Why?

These Companies Have Creative Founders.

Why?

They foresaw the amazing uses of something called the “Internet”.

Why?

The US Army created something called the “ARPANET”

Why?

Communication is vital for Human Beings.

Why?

That is how societies of various hues & shades are formed.

Why?

People like to Bond.

Why?

Since the Dawn of Mankind, Groups were better off than Individuals.

Why?

Mankind was Born.

Why?

The Universe was created.

Now You, the Reader

You are Reading this article.

Why?

It came across your Social Media Feed.

Why?

You have an Internet Connection and thought the Title of the Article was interesting.

Why?

You Have a Phone/Tablet/Laptop and were surfing the Internet

Why?

You bought one for yourself or your Parents bought you one.

Why?

You have an Income or Your Parents love you.

Why?

You are Educated Enough to earn an Income or Your Parents Love You.

Why?

Your Parents were married off or Your Parents met & fell in Love.

Why?

Now we can insert the Grandparents Analogy I used in “My” case and keep going back to the Dawn of Civilisation, before Homo Sapiens were around.

Why?

The Universe was Created.

Or“- either statement could have been a “Cause”.

So at times when we are confused or sad and look for an answer to “Why is this Happening to “Me”? Do not get sucked into Cause & Effect much, because then you’d Question the existence of the Universe. And that is a Deep Rabbit Hole.


P.S: The Butterfly Effect tries to take “Causality” to a whole new level.
