- n. A lack of causality
Given that, why not use, say, a simple exponential moving average that does not suffer from acausality?
If we implement your example of an anti-noise filter, for example, one must account for the acausality by using a delay to shift current output to the current input essentially.
So really, RBH, what we have here is a choice between primal acausality or some naturalistic form of theology.
In their different ways both Jung and Pauli were interested in causality and acausality.
We then find that the amount of negative energy that must be ` borrowed’ is exactly consistent with earlier bounds of Ford and Roman, gr-qc/9901074, and that a simple quantum mechanical model shows that an apparent acausality in the classical variables is in fact fully causal when one looks at the full quantum state.
