I've decided that for those cases where I have strange, funny, interesting or just plain goofy thoughts that aren't worth a full post, I'll try to post them here on their own anyway.
If you want to really understand just how much work goes into learning and understanding cause and effect, just watch kids (or better yet, remember times from your own childhood). Everything they do is based on them thinking they understand how something works, trying it, and failing. Only to learn from their mistakes and adjust as needed. They are learning to understand the effects of their actions and how things actually work, vs. what they thought was correct.
Hopefully they continue that lesson all throughout their life.
