Something's happening because everything's moving.
The river flows around rocks. It doesn't flow through rocks. With a rock in its way it's the river's true nature to flow around it just as it's rock's true nature to not move out of the way. Rocks don't stop the river nor do they make it wrong. It's the river's true nature to flow, giving way to and going around anything in its way. Thus the river, flowing around rocks, honors rocks' true nature.
There's no cause for river. Rain? Or was it clouds before the rain? Or was it wind blowing water saturated air to condensing heights? Wait ... doesn't it require the rotating planet itself to engender the very notion of wind? The river, this river, this very moment standing in the river was therefore already present in the seeds of the universe. The chain of events which caused standing in the river therefore had to have begun at the dawn of time ...
Pick any one of those causes. Pick whichever one your perspective or your fancy happens to alight on. All of them are false cause. Why? Because if the limited focus is expanded, it's clear there's another prior cause which caused that cause. So who or what really is the cause of river? Who or what is the real cause, the source of standing in the river?
