Law of Cause & Effect in Motion
Generally speaking, there are 2 categories of motion – constant & variable motion.

When we mentioned that the rising force of something would generate a new equal opposing force (law of balancing), we are actually referring to action (cause) and reaction (effect) processes under constant motion phenomena.

But under variable motion phenomena, the law of balancing would orientate in a unique harmonising mechanism. Let us look at the following illustrations: -

Constant Motion

Under constant motion circumstance, 'come' factor equals to 'become' factor: -

Come factor = Become factor

Variable Motion

When 'come' factor accelerates, the relative 'become factor' would decelerate: -

Come factor ↑, Become factor ↓

(End results: Mental & physical progresses slow down, for e.g. time dilation circumstance in Einstein’s special theory of relativity).

When 'come' factor decelerates, the relative 'become' factor would accelerate: -

Come factor ↓, Become factor ↑

(End results: Mental & physical progresses speed up, for e.g. ambience of meditation.)

More examples: -

When a car stops suddenly in a quick action; the reaction process becomes slow down in relative to the action and that is a basis for greater inertia effects – serious injuries on the passenger.

When a car stops steadily in a slow action; the reaction process becomes faster in relative to the action and that is a basis for lesser inertia effects – mild injuries on the passenger.

When one launches a bullet towards a target – too fast an action would take the target longer time to react relatively. If compared with launching a throw of baseball – slower an action would give relatively longer time for the target to react.

When one runs water on a piece of paper in slow velocity; the atoms or molecules within the paper have sufficient time to react relatively quicker to hold tight as a scale unit and vice versa.

In reality, we always exist in motion that varies as according to conditioned phenomena and this scenario coincides with the Buddha’s saying that the working result of Kamma was one of the four unconjecturables and to speculate about it would bring madness and vexation to anyone who conjectured about it.

Space and Time

Some people may say that time is an illusion and does not exist after all. So, what actually is time?

Frankly speaking, time is something that is created; not born (a non-natural existence). Time is an indicator for event; whereas length, width & height are indicators for size and volume. All these indicators belong to a category named as dimension. In other words, dimension is created for the task of measurement per se and therefore, not something that arises out naturally.

Also, time is a scalar factor. A scalar refers to a quantity or phenomenon that exhibits magnitude only, with no specific direction. Example of scalars include speed, mass, electrical resistance, and hard-drive storage capacity. Any interval of time is also scalar - it has magnitude only.

On the other hand, space is a natural element in the realm of existence; just like energy and matter elements as well. Space is merely a plane for all existence to arise and to fall i.e. the orientation of energy or matter elements under balance and imbalance conditional phenomena.

Presently, scientists have discovered that space has three spatial dimensions (length, width & height) and one temporal dimension; that is time. In cosmology, the concept of spacetime combines space and time to a single abstract universe. In fact, there is another X-factor dimension exists to accommodate for non-discerning circumstances.

As a summary, we could mention that the 3-spatial dimensions were created for expressing all existence under static phenomena and the combination of 3+1+X-factor dimensions were created for expressing all existence under dynamic phenomena.

What actually happens to an object under accelerating motion?

When an object is set under accelerating motion, the becoming process of the object would be stretched as compared with a relative object that is set under constant or decelerating motion. In other words, the becoming process of the object has been comparatively slowed down; not the time has been dilated or slowed down. Time would only assume the expression that the becoming process has slowed down and not the other way round.

The principle in effect: -

Time is an expression that becoming process exists;
Becoming process is not an expression that time exists.

Length, width & height are expressions that size & volume exist;
Size & volume are not expressions that length, width & height exist.

Shadow is an expression that object & light exist;
Object & light are not expressions that shadow exists.

Effect A is an expression that Cause A exists;
Cause A is not an expression that Effect A exists;
Cause A is an expression that Effect pre-A exists.

In other words,

When no cause arises, no effect would arise;
When no object & light arise, no shadow would arise;
When no becoming process arises, no time would arise.

Similarly, the word of time has been used frequently for expressing different scenario of becoming processes, such as follows: -

NO TIME = an expression of no opportunity for a new becoming process to begin.
TIME TO TIME = an expression of moving from past to present process; present to future process.
TIME PASSED SLOWLY = an expression of hoping for a faster becoming process.
TIME DILATION = an expression that becoming process slows down.

Once again, time is a dimension because it is a scale of measurement created for gauging event of changes. Therefore, time could not be self-sustainable and has no entity. For one to reflect time as an entity is a point of view based on delusion, just like the misconception of 'self' entity in beings.
