When I roll a ball across a pool table and hit another ball, the second ball receives the energy from the first and continues rolling. Cause and effect. This understanding of causation gives us an impressive ability to predict future events, at least within a short time frame. If I drop an egg on the floor, it'll break.

If I move the tip of a pencil across a piece of paper. It'll draw a line.
