My interpretation of causation here: Is the idea of a causal chain physical (or even scientific)?. TLDR: No it doesn't make sense.
Our best picture is that things like space, are patterns in translational symmetries that various particles share, and time is also a set of symmetries - ie it is emergent. Causality is a heuristic conceptual overlay, that helps us make predictions, rather than 'out there'.
'Spaces' within the fundamental space, can have their own consistent rules, though they will be fundamentally emergent. So the space of identities and minds, is real, in a sense, just not fundamentally.
Physical laws seem to have great simplicity and elegance. We expect different universes to be within a state-space of variations of fundamental dimensionless physical constants, plus initial conditions (cyclical models like Conformal Cyclic Cosmology mean these may have emerged complexity) which allows different outcomes from something very simple like symmetry-breaking of one force.
So I'd say causality is not fundamental, and note this addresses Hume's problem of induction. Because there aren't momentary fragments of causation, but rather specific instances of wider patterns, which we think alone can produce the universes structure and complexity, and that of all other universes.
