The Butterfly Effect
The butterfly effect has been introduced half a century ago by Edward Lorenz, a MIT professor who suggested that something as ordinary and tiny as the flutter of a butterfly’s wings can ultimately cause a tornado halfway around the world. All our choices once chosen translate into action, resembling the wing fluttering of the butterfly, these choices can take the course of our lives somewhere while other slightly different choices can change our lives immensely in a completely different direction.
Before 1905, Adolf Hitler whom we know today as the initiator of World War 2, the deadliest war in the course of human history, was just an aspiring art student. Hitler moved to Vienna to study arts but got rejected by the academy of fine arts in Vienna twice, later on he joined the German army and swirled from one position to the other, until he was given the leading position of one of the strongest countries in the world. Imagine if Hitler got into the academy of fine arts, how different the world will be today?
The universe knows better, the importance of midget details that we overlook because it somehow seems too small, too small to be considered or even recognized. The butterfly effect highlights how we should cherish and pay attention to every detail, to believe in small things, because everything matters, it matters more than we will ever comprehend.
