yoma 67

the unseen things that might be upsetting.

the people shouldn't see the red thread, lest it not turn white
the goat should be pushed backwards off the cliff, and not see the bones of Azazel

(part of the ritual of sending the goat to Azazel was that a red thread was tied on it, and when it turned white, it was a sign that the people's sins had been forgiven)
