I have read in a comment to one of the answers given to a question that the existence of two separate times defies the law of causality. Effects can happen before the cause that precedes them. In the question, it was asked if time can exist without a cause preceding it. Now I'm not asking for the physics behind it, but what does it mean conceptually to say that an effect precedes its cause? I'm asking for the possibility, in a philosophical sense, if an effect can go to the front of a cause. When it does, will not the effect has become a cause?
