The Precedence of
Nothing just happens. Whatever does happen is set up to be what it is, and to happen as it happens by all that’s already happened, and that’s just how things are. They call it “system precedent” and it’s why butterflies don’t fly out of your ass unless you [or someone else] has already stuffed those butteries up your ass to begin with.
Seems simple enough and obvious enough, but you’d be surprised to know that there’s a lot of theoretical controversy surrounding the simple, obvious nature of how it goes [and how it must go] when a string of occurrences play out, one on the heels of the one before it.
