Best answer
The principle of the common cause is sometimes referred to as the independence of incoming influences.

It states that: If $X$ does not cause $Y$ and $Y$ does not cause $X$ and they have a common cause $Z$, than assume that $X$ and $Y$ are statistically independent.

If $X$ and $Y$ are dependent, then some causal fact has been left out of the model.
