How many of you have ever used a light switch to turn a light on?
Most everyone in a first world country, right?
And when you turn the light switch on, what happened?
The light came on, didn’t it? Well at least if the power was working or the light bulb wasn’t burned out.
The more important question is – How many times do you expect a different result when you turn the light switch on?
Probably none. We all expect the light to turn on every time.
When I get up in the mornings, I know that after a certain time that if I start petting my chihuahua that he will want to get up and be petted. However, if I don’t make a gesture that resembles petting him, he will simply lay there and stay still or continue to try and sleep.
What do chihuahuas and light bulbs have to do with anything?
