According Aristotle (384-322 B.C.) in his Physics are there four different types of causality:

- 1) to the substance, like in 'the bronze precedes the bronze statue',
- 2) to the determining form as in 'the form of a horse is essential to all horses and the cause of it that we name them thus',
- 3) to the doer like in 'the artist constitutes the cause of his creation' and
- 4) the causality of the norm as in 'I stroll for my health and that is the cause of my strolling'.

In vedic logic we find all these four forms of causality back in the form of the purusha as the soul, the essence of the person of the creation, who in creation precedes the ego as the substance thereof, in the avat√¢ra, the god who assumed the human form and thus liberated, in kâla as the doer moving, creating and conditioning everything and in dharma, the norm of the necessity of the justice of God constituting the cause of the piety and the pious person of knowledge. This way is also filognostically not so easily said that (normative) just the religion or the dharma leads to the science of the person of knowledge, since the other way around the purusha or the (original) person of knowledge himself again is also the cause of it according the illusion of the (substantive) causality that we here adhere to in a linear sense. So also is the avatâra there time and again as a tree of knowledge from which (formative), like from the index-page of the site, all philosophy, spirituality and religion with Him as the stem and kernel sprouts, and is there also the impersonal of the spirituality relating to the time factor kâla that, as employed in the isolated articles at the site to this book, constitutes the (constructive) cause of the intuitive way of learning. Thus is the filognosy of different forms of consecution to one's emancipating and a one's acquiring of experience.
