The world

   For the Buddha, what is called the world  is not a set of mere objects found in space and time, related or unrelated. It includes also feelings and dispositions, likes and dislikes.
   The world consists not only of mountains and rivers, trees and stones, but also of humans and animals with behavioural patterns. Causality describes how all these things function. Human dispositions, likes and dislikes, constitute an important causal factor in the world.
   Intentions lead to physical and mental consequences. Intentions do matter.
