A nice description of the “cause and effect”-mind from Mark Bernstein :

“Scott McCloud’s brilliant Understanding Comics teaches us a lesson that transcends the realm of comics: if we see two things next to each other, we draw a connection from one to the other. Our minds construct a sequence, a connection, a relationship. Even if the relationship is obscure, we’ll eventually find it (or make one up). In space, we call this collage. In time, it’s montage. We see things next to each other and we imagine a sequence. We see a sequence, and we imagine a story, a cause and its effect.”
