I'm afraid I can't teach rigorous thinking.

Yeah, that's what I thought. Nothing to backup anything that comes out of your mouth. It's much easier to deflect and attack the person.

Rigorous thinking a few Google searches is all you need. I'm not here to provide you with a free, step-by-step education.
You making such demands on my time is presumptuous, and you taking it personally is just insecure.

You might try asking a specific question, instead of just asking for general resources you SHOULD be able to find yourself.

No, not metaphysics, just basic physics...cause and effect.

Most physics theories (physical laws) are T-symmetrical, but due to the second law of thermodynamics, the physical universe generally is not.
