hi peter. thanks for the great podcast. Big fan. However, whiling away the time between episodes I notice that among the themes to date there is no entry for Causation. Rank amateur that I am I consider this to be a major theme throughout the histoty of Phil. So what gives.

Now that's a good point. I will add it when I get a chance! (And you will be the cause of that theme's existence.)
