I'm glad you are amused. Did you experience your amusement as being caused by what I had written? I'm gathering you're on Hume's side on this one.
I'm not saying I agree with Hume or Searle on this, but for some reason their arguments do not cause me to laugh as they seem to do to you.
Obviously Hume's argument is that when a billiard ball strikes another, we do not see, hear, smell, taste, touch or in any sense feel the force that causes the balls to change their direction and momentum; that in other words, we do not in any sense experience causation.
Searle is asserting with his examples, that we 'feel' the force of the push that sends us flying, the resistance of the kerb or the muscular tension that raises the arm, and thus, that we do experience causation.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on the matter, if you can pick yourself up off the floor long enough to return to your computer.

It's hard for me to comprehend how someone would have trouble discerning the two. I'm gay myself and find it both dangerous and a little upsetting that they could be concieved as overlapping in any way.
Paedophiles are aroused by things like hurting and innocence.
