Marcus Aurelius: No intervals

“I call this life a happy one in which I do one good deed after another, with no intervals between them.” -Marcus Aurelius


Russ Roberts: Causation

“So we manage to convince ourselves that the evidence speaks so loudly, so emphatically, that we have no choice but to declare our allegiance to a particular tribe as a result of that evidence. The red tribe. Or the blue one. Or the white one. Or the black one. It rarely crosses our minds to notice that causation is probably going the opposite direction — the tribe we are in determines the evidence we notice and accept.”
—Russ Roberts.
