I emphasize the important conclusions from a previous chapter and suggest ways that others can build on the main ideas. In particular, I show how the metaphysical project conducted in this book is related to philosophical work on causal modeling and to theories of causation based on the transference of conserved quantities or marks. The discussion wraps up by surveying topics my metaphysics of causation is not intended to address.

Keywords:   causal modeling, causal process, empirical analysis, causal asymmetry, causal explanation
