The cause of an act is the inner intention of the subject

The determinate relation of causality

1.   The cause of an act is the inner intention of the subject who is the agent, and this intention is the SAME in content and value as the existence which it attains through the action.

   If the movement of a body is considered as effect, the cause of this effect is then a propulsive ( 推進的 )  force;

2. The alternation of form which the basic fact undergoes s it passes through several middle terms HIDES the identity which it preserves across them.

In this proliferation of  causes introduced between it and the last effect, the fact is linked to other things and circumstances, so that it is NOT that first term, which is declared in the cause, but all these several causes together, that contain the complete effect. . . .

3.  Here that which is called the cause does indeed show itself to be of DIFFERENT content than the effect, but this is because anything that has an effect on A LIVING THING is independently determined,

altered and transmuted ( 使變形 ( 或變質 ); 使變化 )  by the latter, for the living thing WILL NOT LET the cause comes to its effect, that is, it sublated it as cause.

4. In history in general there are indeed spiritual masses and individuals AT PLAY and influencing EACH OTHER;

but it is the NATURE OF SPIRIT, in a much higher sense than it is of the character of the living thing, that it will NOT admit another originative principle WITHIN itself,

and that it will NOT let a cause continue to works causality in it undistributed but will rather interrupt and transmute ( 使變形 ( 或變質 ); 使變化 ) it.

5. it is by the spirit that any such triviality and contingency is determined in the first place to be the occasion of spirit.
