If you are familiar with this term you may stop reading now.

Spike and I went back and forth a few times, and it turns out that he has
not heard of it.  Certainly he knows the idea:

Add two variables to a situation and no matter what happens you can't tell
the effect of one from the other.

Psych uses confounding to describe this, but I'd like to find out who else
does, or if they don't, do they have a word for the idea.
