I wonder, however, if the situation of causality is more similar to what happened to the old mechanics of time and space localization. I mean, is it so certain that the attitude of causality has reached a limit any more than considerations of time and space? The latter were not eliminated simply because the simultaneous thing no longer worked. This is to ask, is it possible that the notion of causality could be extensionalized? That what is necessary is a less mechanistic attitude toward determinism, the inheritance from the old mechanics, that it can be replaced by a creative notion of determinism?

Indeed, this is only a special case of the universal linkage of each part of the universe to the whole in the same way. e. what is other to it). This holds as much for the observing subject (or for his proxy, the observing apparatus), as it does for any object that we might care to distinguish from its background.
