Given two one-dimensional discrete time series with equal length, {u(i) : 1 [less than or equal to] i [less than or equal to] N} and {v(i) : 1 [less than or equal to] i [less than or equal to] N}, the definition of cross sample entropy is given as follows [24]:

Having this basic knowledge about how Causality works the conclusion is, that any Causal Process has a sequential functionality of its Stages and Causal Phases based on a well established Entropy Flow always from Cause to Effect, in this way being established a Time Based Structured Order of its functionality easy to understand and measure.
In the entropy index of information entropy, a smaller index value indicates the degree of variation, which consequently result to greater amount of information provided, greater share of the weight and greater comprehensive evaluation of the role of entropy.
