On this mirror—and our intellect is a mirror—something is occurring that indicates regularity: a certain thing is each time followed by another certain thing.  When we perceive this and wish to give it a name we call it "cause and effect"—fools that we are!  As if by this we had understood or could understand anything!  For of course we have seen nothing but a picture of causes and effects and it is just this figurativeness which renders it impossible for us to see a more substantial relation than that of mere sequence!
