I have been browsing some posts in this StackExchange where I encountered a rather odd proposition that
Gravity and other forces are non-entity causes.
I fail to see how that is the case. I would argue that gravity and other forces are the effects of entities that cause them.
From a Coulomb's perspective, a source charge (physical entity) has some charge property, that when it comes near a test charge it exerts a force on it. For if there were no source charges present, the test charge would not be affected in any way. It suffices to state that it is actually the source charged entity that causes the motion of the test charge, rather than some non-entity cause, essentially the force, that causes the motion of the test charge. A similar example can also be used to explain the Newtonian Gravity and how even over there we don't need a non-entity cause.
Moreover, if the above is true, then are there any non-entity causes? Any conceptions or examples we may have acquired in reality?
