" but what about events in the future?
can they cause changes in the past? "

RB. Fuller realized there are no things, only actions - hence, I seem to be a verb!
The slowest rivers appear as still lakes or ponds, but even these flow, downhill/through time. Self contained water systems are oceanic, displaying circulation/flow when observed at the appropriate scale. Universe at rest is self-contradiction.

In a river, a wave event is propagated preferentially downstream/into the future/with the flow. Human activity scales to a grain of sand in a rapidly flowing mountain stream. Splashing in Baton Rouge makes no wave in St. Louis.

Accepting Tao flow leads to (tai chi)Chuan; eight men in a boat have no oars and flow effortlessly into the future, perfectly poised on the eternal now.
