Philosophy Wire: Children. Personality. Causality. (reversed)

Children's personalities may influence how they perform in math and reading, according to a study by psychology researchers at The University of Texas at Austin. [1] We believe in causality. But there is no reason whatsoever not to believe in the reverse causality. Children’s performance in math and reading. Affecting their personality. Weird. Could not be true. And this reason alone could be the reason that it is. See the world upside down. Is the world affecting you? Or are you affecting the world? Neither? Both? Can you find the beginning of a straight line? Can you detect the end of a circle?

Just dance!

Does it matter who started?
