Appreciate that grain of salt

We live in a world where it seems things happen for a reason. If THIS, then THAT. Certain things probably CAUSE other things to happen. It would be great if this were true. The fact is we don’t know what causes anything. We perceive that two things are associated and sometimes the association is so strong that we connect the things in a cause-effect relationship.   For every such relationship there is always an exception; Continue Reading
