We shall discuss two perspectives on relativistic causality. The first one is based on discrete systems statistics and shows that minimal assumption on correlation boxes from the perspective of relativistic causality leads to a correlation picture that goes fat beyond standard no-signaling paradigm. The second analysis involves an analysis of dynamics of potential continuous statistics of single system in a quantum-like, linear or not, theory. The main result provides the condition under which such dynamics may be causal.
