We frequently confuse correlation with causality. Despite outward appearances, a large number of people gathering on a railway platform do not cause a train to appear soon afterwards. Instead the two 'events' are correlated with an independent causal process (railway timetables).

However in our observations of many social activities – and, indeed, our observations of the way we think we think – such correlations are very often regarded as causes.
