Life is an inward digestion of experience. Depending upon how quickly the waste material comes out the other end, we have some idea of how long it takes an event to transpire. I ate kiwi and strawberry while sitting on the toilet ( in my dream) and the waste material come out the other end almost immediately.
The next day, there was a small New Zealand earthquake followed by a small New England earthquake. Kiwi fruit = New Zealand. Wild strawberries originated in New England.
Vomiting means an event cannot happen because the raw material of that event did not have a chance to be digested and eliminated.
