Since (gj , ηj ) originate from the global structure (g , η) then this global Sasakian structure must coincide with the standard Sasakian structure of Example 1.
Locally Sasakian Manifolds
However on a nontrivial background manifold M one cannot do this globally and therefore there are nontrivial global (topological) degrees of freedom.

This ”cascade” of processes defines a global energy flux in our universe which, if traced back, owes its origin to the initial global instability that is the source of all the energy of the universe.
The cosmological origin of time-asymmetry
The global system also allows us to introduce the notion of causality in the universe (i.e. global causality) since, using Fig.1, we can say that events A and B are not causally related, while C is the (partial) cause of D, and D is the (partial) effect of C.
