We are butterflies

We are butterflies

Ruffled Mother-Earth

Rattles unworried islands

Obliterates lives

 

Vicious ocean waves

Carry more catastrophes

Jolted Japan aches.

 

Nuclear dust drifts

Around the panicked planet

Powerless we feel.

 

Pause, ponder, appraise

Did you hug someone today?

We are butterflies.

Butterfly effect

by Orang Gholikhani on

Hi Azadeh,

Thanks for your very nice poem.

I suppose you have alraedy heard about Butterfly effect : 

A butterfly flapping its wing in Paris can cause a few weeks later a storm over New York. This image describes the butterfly effect as it has been highlighted by the meteorologist Edward Lorenz. He discovered that in weather systems, a tiny change in one component can grow gradually until it causes huge changes after a while. This concept is not only the weather, it has been studied in various fields. When applied to human societies, it would mean that changes in behavior that may seem insignificant initially trigger widespread upheaval.

Scientists analyzing the evolution of our companies believe in the future, social transformation will be increasingly linked to a few individual stocks rather than mass phenomena. This is because two essential conditions for the emergence of the butterfly effect are now satisfied.

  • On the one hand, the flow of information has become ever faster and denser between the different actors of society and different parts of the world. This happened because previously isolated, can now be connected very quickly. Which encourages the transmission and amplification of the changes.
  • On the other hand, at the dawn of the third millennium, human societies are clearly reached a point of bifurcation. We are in a period of redefinition of norms and values ​​regarding work, saving, but also social life and relations between states. In such situations, a small change can make any switch.

These elements are the power to change the world at our fingertips, if we know free us from our inner tyrants . If we succeed, we can find in our everyday life areas where even small changes in our behavior may trigger the butterfly effect.

Dear Raoul: isn't it wiser to avoid the repetitive political arguments or non-creative articles that lead to no sparkle in our minds :-)

Cheers,
