Intervention and Homo sapiens

Don't we have an example of the supernatural affecting the natural world
every time a human being performs an action in the material world? This
would be intervention, albeit in a small way. We're just so used to it
that we rarely think about it. This supernatural intervention is part of
God's plan in Creation.

I'm writing this in relation to the idea that there is some seamless (or
almost seamless) progression of causes in the material world which are not
the result of supernatural events.

I figure I must be misunderstanding this "functional integrity" business.
Anybody wanna help?
