I wonder how the ""suspension of cause and effect" for the noumena" implies
the "authogonalization of cause and effect" and how this "authogonalization"
yields the "instantaneousness" of "communication between the appropriate
phenomena via the noumena." Could you explain more? I seem not to understand
the word "noumena" in your context enough.
