Hypercausality flicker

Physics tells uss that "every effect has a cause".

Philosophy states that "every cause is an effect".

By substitution, historians and physicists often derive the statement "Every cause has a cause" or "Every effect has an effect", in order to propagate their explanation forwards or backwards in time (relative to our frame of reference in 3+1 space-time), either to their preferred region of space-time in the case of historians, or in the case of physicists to propagate the entire universe as we perceive it to an inevitable set of outcomes derived from the properties of a no longer extant super energetic point mass.

The existence of the Kandar Lithoglyph and other hyper-causal phenomena gives philosophers throughout the galaxy hope that these logicians are hopelessly simplifying the problem before them.

Study

Hypercausality Flicker is a phenomenon in which a single cause in 3+1 space time appears, often only briefly, to have numerous sometimes contradictory, effects. Hypercausal effects are often noted in the observation logs of engineers experimenting with high energy Gravity Pumps. The most common manifestation is a report of deja vu or dizziness after the event - many who experience hypercausality flicker do not understand what they have experienced or recognize it as remarkable.

Mechanical apparatus for observing the extra effects have universally failed - the extra effects are superimposed in some dimension that does not emit RF, heat, or kinetic energy in a way that a sensor can detect. Film of a hypercausal effect, for example, shows only one of the many outcomes that seem to be perceived by most biological minds. A grant was funded to take scans of brains perceiving hypercausal phenomena. The sensitive scanning apparatus were heavily distorted by proximity to the high energy levels required to generate the effects, but the scans showed normal EM activity, suggesting that the apparatus of the mind that perceives the extra dimensional phenomena may itself be extra dimensional. Much to the philosopher's delight, this has led to the only firm accounts of hypercausal flicker being first hand testimony of the individuals who experienced them.

Quantum Infomorphs

The Kaqueni people once attempted to interconnect an exploratory infomorph and a bank of Quantum-bit super-computing nodes. The hope was that in the course of its computations, the quantum superposition of results from the Qbits in the logic matrix of the AI would make it possible for the AI to generate and observe Hypercausality flickers in its own processes. The experiment was a failure - the AI requested more and more power resources for the super-cooled Qbit processors, without returning any useful output, until the system was shut down for budgetary reasons.

Known Hypercausal Disasters

No member of the Watchers Council has made any claim to generating a sustainable long term causality infraction. However, since the Kandar Lithoglyph is unavailable for study, this has not stopped them trying, often with catastrophic results.

  • Upon its launch, the SCEV What Are You Waiting For was perceived by 300 onlookers to simultaneously explode, implode, fly safely out of sight, and reverse thrust directly into the asteroid launch platform. No wreckage was found, but the vessel has not been heard from since.
