6.362 What can be described can also take place, and what is supposed to be excluded by the law of causality cannot even be described.

Can take place in what sense? A logical one? The law of causality gives the form of physics, but is not meant merely to describe one possible kind of physics. It is meant, after all, to be a law. So there can be laws of this kind, there can be physics as we know it, but such a general law cannot be part of physics.
