A description of the experience

Al-Ghazzali - The Alchemy of Happiness - 11 On science, cause and effect

owing to the different degrees of perception in people, disputes must inevitably arise in tracing effects to causes.

The laws of phenomena must be constant, or there could be no such thing as science; but it is a great error to mistake the slaves for the master.
