Discussion Question:

(3) Do you agree with Hume that our minds simply manufacture the idea of ‘secret’ power in a cause by which it brings about an effect or a necessary connection between CAUSE and EFFECT just like we manufacture (imagine) the idea of a golden mountain or the idea of a centaur (half human half horse)?
