- Jorge Luis Borges ”La flor de Coleridge”, in Otras Inquisiciones, 1952
By the way, while we're on this point, lets not confuse causation with correlation. Correlation between two phenomenon are often linked by a third so-called confounding event. Thus, two events seem to move together, and thus one appears to be the causation of the other, but in fact, they are simply correlated by a confounding event.
Thus: lesson learned. Before declaring causation, look about for the confounder!
