I’ve been thinking about the acausal principle as of late, and I think it has merit. If we consider the acausal principle to be an absolute, then yes, there is something “holding together” the universe. It’s the connecting principle. It’s an absolute. The idea of cause-and-effect is an illusory one, as there are correlations. Cause-and-effect is an correlary argument from data, but it’s not necessary a true thing that occurs. I don’t believe it actually occurs, and I believe people argue “cause” and mean “high correlation.” Thus, the language issue becomes obvious.
