Causality Principle

The principle that cause must always preceed effect.

More formally, if an event A ("the cause") somehow influences an event B ("the effect") which occurs later in time, then event B cannot in turn have an influence on event A.

That is, event B must occur at a later time t than event A, and further, all frames must agree upon this ordering.
