Abstract

Causality is the relationship between causes and effects. Following Relativity, any cause of an event must always be in the past light cone of the event itself, but causes and effects must always be related to some interactions. In this paper, causality is developed as a consequence of the analysis of the Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen paradox. Causality is interpreted as the result of time generation, due to irreversible interactions of real systems among them. Time results as a consequence of irreversibility; so, any state function of a system in its space cone, when affected by an interaction with an observer, moves into a light cone or within it, with the consequence that any cause must precede its effect in a common light cone.
