Corrected entry: Hector is in a causal loop, meaning his present actions are influenced by his future self. However, some of his actions have no initial cause; he strips the girl and later stabs himself because he remembers that's what his future self did, but he had no reason for initially doing those things. As opposed to later hitting the car and cutting the girl's hair, where he knew why he was doing it, his earlier actions made no sense.

Correction: It's a paradox. There may have never been a beginning. I can be hard to swallow this logic but it is the only explanation and that is what the director wants you to understand. It's like explaining the end of space, it may keep going or there may be an end which wouldn't make sense since there can't be an end.
