That is THE precise question being discussed here. Whenever kAraNa is
discussed, it is always to lead to the sarvakAraNAnAM kAraNam. I'd be
surprised if you put that question to yourself and it led you elsewhere!

Either you have a topsyturvy approach or we do, since my understanding is
that the clues in these kind of discussions lead you to the answer to the
question and not the other way around! Of course, you are the better judge
for yourself.
