What good do big doors do?
That seems like a question
For causal inference:
What probability 
Of good follows, given
The choice to do big doors,

Or, P of (G | do (D))?
Red Pine has translated
A thousand year-old poem
Alluding to a tale
From the Han dynasty
In which a man who built

A big door to seem grand
Died young from overwork.
Big doors did him no good,
But think of the lesson
For all the good it did.
Causation is its myth.
