Circumstances spawn/create/produce/beget/etc. circumstances. That's all there is and ever has been. That is all there ever will be. We keep talking about "the beginning," and "the end." There is no beginning! There is no end! There is no outcome! One "outcome" leads to another set of circumstances with another "outcome," ad nauseam. The "outcome" of the discovery of America, or of the Revolutionary War, or of any war, is still being realized, and it will never be done. The smallest event making the tiniest impact rolls on forever. We say God has no beginning but was eternal from the start. Why not say the same thing about carbon atoms? Or rocks? Or light? There was no creation. It's all been here in some form or another for always, evolving, destroying, except for energy-- "energy can't be created or destroyed, only converted from one form of energy to another" (Law of conservation of energy), coming and going like the tides through time. And with circumstances spawning/creating/producing/ begetting/etc. circumstances all the way. The flow of circumstances is directed by the Karma, or the drift, or the current... out of which circumstances arise. This system of circumstances creating circumstances is all nicely self-contained, self-generating and self-perpetuating, and if circumstances could reflect on themselves and examine themselves, and explain it to themselves, as I am doing for them here/now, it would be just another aspect of circumstances being what they are. As everything is. Just another aspect of circumstances being what they are.

This post is much more useful than 12th grade Physics was.
