The Saw machine is an example of physical causality where one action leads to another based on physical forces. However, physical causality can become predictable because it runs just like a machine. What goes up will always come down, that is simply the way the physical world works. When we clearly know the rules like the law of gravity then we know what to expect and there are no surprises.
