Chaos Theory

You ever hear the phrase "when a butterfly flaps its wings..."? I've been digging even deeper and stumbled across this idea called Chaos Theory, or the Butterfly Effect.

The theory says that seemingly random events aren't really random and that tiny changes can have huge results. Like when you put a drop of water on the back of your hand it rolls off in one direction, then you put another drop in the same place and it rolls off in a different direction depending on subtle differences in your skin and the drop.

According to the Butterfly effect, the subtle changes in the air caused by a butterfly flapping its wings can end up causing a tornado halfway around the world, the movement of its wings affects the entire weather system!
