The split between interior significance (doing*being)(timespace) and exterior entropy (matter/energy)/spacetime prefigures causality. Causality is part of 'doing', a semantic temporal narrative of explanation which circumscribes significance and priority. If you try to push causality back before causality, you can only come up with anthropic or teleological pseudo first causes which still don't explain where first cause possibilities come from. Does the totality exist in this way because it has to exist? Because it wants to exist? Because it can't not exist? Because it just does exist and why is unknowable? Yes, yes, yes, yes and no, no, no, no. It's the totality. All questions exist within it and cannot escape. In that respect it is like a semantic black hole.
