The purpose of this paper is the give the reader a sense of some of the research that was crucial in leading me to carry out a full-scale analysis of the relationship between shape and causal history, in my book Symmetry, Causality, Mind, (MIT Press, 1992). While this paper does not include the basic ideas of the book, it gives some sense of the motivating problem.
