Dependent origination 縁起

In Buddhism, dependent origination means cause and effect. So, everything (incl. self) is dependently originated. This means that self came from previous self (cause) and will be next self (effect). Therefore, there is no beginning and no end. This self is subtle consciousness which imprints karma. Subtle consciousness is the space-time continuum.
