In physics, the butterfly effect is the ‘sensitive dependence on initial conditions’, wherein a small change in one part of a complex system can produce large effects in the long-term behavior of the system. The theory, coined by Norton Lorenz, pioneer of chaos theory, is that a butterfly that flaps its wings in Tokyo can subtly affect New York, or make a small change in the initial condition that significantly shifts the weather pattern in Texas. Like the domino effect, a small change in the initial condition of the system can create a large-scale alteration of events down the road.
Margaret Meade described the same effect:
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
