The Butterfly Effect & Chaos Theory

The Butterfly Effect & Chaos Theory

In chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions, where a small change at one place in a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences to a later state.

Chaos theory studies the behavior of dynamical systems that are highly sensitive to initial conditions, an effect which is popularly referred to as the butterfly effect. Small differences in initial conditions yield widely diverging outcomes for chaotic systems, rendering long-term prediction impossible in general. This happens even though these systems are deterministic, meaning that their future behavior is fully determined by their initial conditions, with no random elements involved. In other words, the deterministic nature of these systems does not make them predictable. This behavior is known as deterministic chaos, or simply chaos.

Today people believe that they are powerless to make significant change in the world. The Butterfly Effect and Chaos Theory prove that even trivial actions will have consequential outcomes. I would surmise that while the immediate foreseeable future may be predictable, the long-term future remains random. We can then conclude that the future “is not” static, and that we are in fact, the masters of our own destiny.

These two theories are complimented by Newton’s third law of physics, in that “for every action, there is an opposite and equal reaction”. While Newton was credited with the science, the laws of physics may find their truth in what Buddhism refers to as “Karma”;

Karma in Indian religions is the concept of "action" or "deed", understood as that which causes the entire cycle of cause and effect (i.e. the cycle called saṃsāra) originating in ancient India and treated in the Hindu, Jain, Buddhist and Sikh religions.

Whether it is through science or religion, your role in the hologram is far-reaching. Every sound you make, every thought you exercise, every object you manipulate, every interaction you have, impacts the entire world. You are the creator of your own domino effect. Silence is golden, but not when the silence becomes a noose around your neck, it is time for affirmative action.

Stop listening and start asking questions. Create your own chaos. It will undo the deception.

Thank you,
