Refutation of Open-Universe Causal Reasoning

Authors: Colin James III

The proposition and axiom as tested are not tautologous. This does not “validate an intuitive and familiar set of principles about subjunctive conditionals and the relation of causal influence”. This also does not support “an important class of implicit generative models that can plausibly be treated as genuine causal models” or “enable reasoning beyond the propositional level”. The conjecture of open-universe causal reasoning forms a non tautologous fragment of the universal logic VŁ4.
