Everything we do, say or think is an effect of some kind of cause -- we eat because we are hungry, drink because we're thirsty, answer the phone or door because it rings, bathe, brush our teeth, comb our hair because that's what we do everyday, scratch because we itch, yawn because we're bored, go to the market because we need things, stop at signals because they are red, turn on a light because it's dark, watch TV or the computer because that's what we do everyday, pay bills because they're due, respond to posts because we have something to say.
Sure. But you must recognize that your list of C & E enumerates a host of different kinds and categories of causes and effects. Hunger and thirst are the involuntary-yet-conscious products of self-regulating biological systems. Bathing, brushing one's teeth, and combing one's hair are, on a basic level a response to a desire for comfort , and also are, on a broader historical level, a response to social norms informed by a casual knowledge of the benefits of personal hygiene. People go to the market, stop at red lights, and even pay bills because they have a sense of self preservation within a complicated social system. Still, i must admit, scratching and yawning are (somewhat-) involuntary reflexes -- one can't pretend that deliberation has much to say about that -- except that both can be repressed, with considerable will, in certain social situations. A person does want to turn on the electric light when they can't see in the dark -- someone else invented it, but one does take advantage of earlier tools.
"Cause" is both a much more difficult concept and a much more difficult phenomenon than we'd like to think. "Effect" is similarly complicated. But the relationship between them is even more complicated.
"Cause and Effect" is not a matter of a domino affect -- Imagine that two pool balls were spinning toward one another, moving at near equal speeds, they impact and head off in different directions. What is the cause of each consequent motion, which is effected? The answer is both and both. "Cause and effect", considered in a larger context, is not a matter of "if-then" but of (in contrast to impromptu theater) "and-but" (or "but-and", whatev...)
I doubt any of the above will cause you to see sense, but hopefully it will help you to see how things fit together.(#hubris)
