References in classic literature ?
In ordinary physical causation, as it appears to common sense, we have approximate uniformities of sequence, such as "lightning is followed by thunder," "drunkenness is followed by headache," and so on.
This makes us unwilling to regard causal laws as MERELY observed uniformities of sequence; yet that is all that science has to offer.
If one were to look back over the past 20 years one would see that there have been many leaps of technological development bringing higher production rates and better weight uniformities in needled fabrics, all contributing to reduced incremental manufacturing costs and better overall fabric performance relating to the enhanced weight uniformities in the finished fabric.
