To get anything started – or in this case, restarted – there must be an initial cause. In this case, an initial repeat of cause. Is this an oxymoron? Not much idea – since I have little precise idea of the meaning of oxymoron. But the word “oxymoron” seems appropriate. Appropriate in the sense of pretentiousness. And appropriate in the sense of me hoping to make sense.
There you go! There is the initial cause – or repeat in cause. The hope to make sense…. pretentiously.
