Good. I guess I don’t see why causality in a block world should (in general) be superfluous (or inconsistent). You can ask “Suppose this measuring device setting had been different — would anything earlier have been different?” If yes, then you’re retrocausal. But what I suspect is that it’s hard to answer this question in RBW because of the unmediated nature of the energy exchange. That is, I suspect that it’s not the block world that makes causal talk inappropriate, but something else about your model. Does that sound right?
