A hypostasis

Causation – an asymptote of major sources, an abstraction, an emotional exaggeration and major intellectual confusion that has been given substance, as if it is an everyday reality like a tree or a car.

The ultimate causal confusion – god, an everlasting spiritual substance who cannot be zeroed, as the creator of the world.

Re: Kant – it is not the job of the philosopher to make categories out of intellectual confusions/emotional exaggerations. The philosopher detects these, criticizes them, and suggests replacements, in this case, more empirical language.
