According to Hume, experiences of reiterating consistencies, or constant conjunctions, stipulate our expectations and devise predictions. In addition to inclination and contiguity, the singular occurrence of many relevantly similar transactions at different times provides causation understanding. We project conditioned feelings of inevitability as a kind of necessity that resides in objects. Reinforcement determines understanding.
