If Pan Jinlian didn’t open the window, she wouldn’t have encountered Ximen Qing; if she didn’t encounter Ximen Qing, she wouldn’t have committed infidelity; if she didn’t commit infidelity, Wu Song wouldn’t have been forced to escape to Mount Liang (after killing her and Ximen Qing); if Wu Song didn’t escape to Mount Liang, Fang La wouldn’t have been arrested and he might have obtained Song’s territory; if Fang La obtained Song’s territory, there wouldn’t have been the Jingkang Incident, the entry of the Jin military, or the Qing Dynasty; then there wouldn’t have been a closing off to the outside world, the Opium Wars, or the Eight-Nation Alliance. That way China would have been the only superpower in the world, and the other vassal states would have been as unimportant as passing clouds. Little Pan, did you have nothing else to do? Why the hell did you open the window?!
