People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually -- from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint -- it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly ... time-y wimey... stuff.

Finally. Correlation equals causation.

It's about time scientists finally admitted it.

I'm have no true understanding of quantum physics. But I do remember reading about experiments that seemed to indicate that observation alone was enough to alter what it was observing.

With no known physical influence, would this not indicate a complete abandonment of causal relationships at some level?

Probably not. I probably misunderstood.

In this case 'observation' is necessarily intervention.
