Note 1
From chapter The Association Of Ideas in An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding by David Hume

For instance Contrast or Contrariety is also a connexion among Ideas: but it may, perhaps, be considered as a mixture of Causation and Resemblance. Where two objects are contrary, the one destroys the other that is, the cause of its annihilation and the idea of the annihilation of an object, implies the idea of its former existence.
