Butterfly Effect Theory

It is a theory unlike any other, it is the amazing formula of our universe and the most powerful blow to those who adopt inevitably, it is the effect of butterfly or chaos theory, and butterfly effect theory means that a butterfly may flank on one of the Siberian plains and cause a devastating hurricanes in America; it’s about how minor initial changes can flip the results upside down.

It may seem exaggerating, but it is logical and scientific. Small events can produce unexpected large disasters.

The butterfly effect theory starts where traditional science stops incapacitated. Since science began trying to solve the mysteries of the universe, it has always suffered from unexpected surprises that turn the table, In the 1970s, a constellation of physicists, mathematicians, biologists and chemists was formed setting in mind the analysis of the data of the butterfly effect theory and the result was that the unexpectedness is a universal principle, thus; the theory of chaos became the third major scientific revolution of the twentieth century, after the revolutions of the theory of relativity and Quantum Mechanics theory.

Since the beginning of the twentieth century, quantum physicists have noticed that understanding the laws of nature through particle physics does not fully answer the behavior of these particles, and the need for a new science to fill the gap between calculations and results has been evident; so came the chaos theory; which was usually referred to  in weather broadcasts as “Butterfly Wing Effect”.

Climatologist Edward Lorenz was one of the first to work on this theory starting in 1962 through his conclusions of the unforeseen weather conditions that the language of statistics and calculations were unable to control.

 At first, Lorenz thought that everything around him revolves around the inevitability of Newton, a cosmic conception that understanding the laws is sufficient to accommodate the world.

The world according to this concept is a delicately drawn world on the path of the inevitable, which is also called the inevitability of Laplace. This inevitable perception of existence seemed to be nothing more than an illusion.

According to the new theory, the eruption of a volcano in a star in a galaxy could affect the calculations of the movement of billiard ball in a club, so that the approximate accuracy of modern science in all its calculations could collapse at any moment.

The fall of a leaf should not lead to storms and hurricanes in another country, but experience with the equation system of the weather computer invented by Edward Lorenz proved that the fall of a leaf could lead to catastrophic consequences, because something went out of stereotypical thinking and philosophy.

The birth of a new theory, and indeed this theory was chaos.

The least initial variable Lorenz added to his computer’s weather program led to floods in the desert and hurricanes in the heart of the world’s capitals. In fact, the calculations of Henri Poincaré, the last of the mathematician giants who could formulate a geometric imagination of the laws of motion in physics, predicted the emergence of chaos theory, where his writings contained many references to the impossibility of long-term predictions for the systems of primary data changes. A tiny variable can destroy everything.

Chaos theory crosses the scientific fields to the analysis of the social phenomena themselves, it’s not only applicable to the abstract physical impact on the natural or cosmic phenomena, but it extends to the everyday-life of man.

Sensitive dependence on the initial situation turns everything afterwards, and the issue can be brought closer to our social reality: the murder of the Austrian Crown Prince in Sarajevo, months after World War I and the murder of 2% of the world’s population.

Another example is the  problem in the brakes of the latest Mercedes models, months after it; the collapse of the global economy and the displacement of tens of millions.

The Butterfly Effect is no longer limited to the scientific field, but has gone beyond to the analysis of many social and political phenomena.

The theory has become one of the largest issues of modern science, with thousands of books written about it, and is now reshaping our vision of the whole existence.
