The Illusion of Cause & Effect

An awning, mounted above the store’s entrance door, shields the bald-man from inclement weather. He was hired to clean the shop’s windows. Overhead shade places half his soap bucket in shadow and the other half in sunlight. He dips an elongated scrub brush into the container, sloshes it around, amassing bubbles that erupt over the edge. The bubbles displayed in the sunshine contour rainbows and burst like July 4th skies.
Laundry vents filter lilac scented vapors out of an apartment complex and onto the sidewalk, adding flavor to foot traffic. A woman passes the bald man, active with a conversation had telephonically. She tastes lilacs. Lilacs taste like how bartering feels. Her speech pauses as she smacks her lips and tongue, attempting to dispel the aroma, from her mouth.

Doctors recommend sleepwalkers acquire video evidence of their escapades. It might reveal triggers and dangers, relevant to their condition.
Some insomniacs record themselves awake, as dreamers confess no memories of their sleep cycle, so do the sleepless opposites, of their waking life.

Video footage documenting an insomniac, revealed a woman who would clean her windows, when she couldn’t sleep. Birds confused her glass for sky and often struck it. A family of robins snapped their necks upon collision with the clean glass, dying on her windowsill. She’d read in a liberal magazine that Picasso was cruel and decided to leave the robins there.

Cause and effect manipulation articulates the illusion, staging the moral experience.

Occam’s Razor dulls after slicing notches in stone.
