The dots line up in synch.
In a ladder diagram, you draw paths for all the objects and a 6x will
land three pairs of dots forward on the other side. (Dwell times are
ignored so it leaves the hand immediately.)
In a causal diagram the paths don't indicate objects, but the reason or
cause those hands need to be emptied. This is basically a ladder diagram
with all the arrows arriving as many beats earlier, as there are hands
used in the pattern. Causal diagrams are most often used with passing
