The butterfly effect is a term in the natural sciences that refers to a property of some chaotic systems: a small influence on the system can have large and unpredictable consequences somewhere else and at another time.
They usually give an example like this
A butterfly flapping its wings in Iowa can cause an avalanche of effects that can peak during the rainy season in Indonesia.
What does all this actually mean?
We live in a world where every second events can unfold in any way. Let's take one person as an example . In each period of time, he can act one way or another (pour himself tea, turn on the TV, spill tea, etc.) Each of his actions has a certain effect on subsequent events.
For example, I'm walking down the street and after eating a banana, I see an urn. I'm too lazy to approach and I threw the peel in the direction of the urn and missed. In the evening, a stray dog decided to eat it and moved the peel to the bike path. In the morning, a passing cyclist ran over a banana peel and broke his arm. If I hadn't hit the trash can or bought a banana (which I didn't want so badly), the cyclist wouldn't have broken his arm. This chain of events is the butterfly effect. My decision to buy a banana resulted in a cyclist breaking his arm somewhere. Something like that))
The butterfly effect is when some minor action is performed on one side of the earth, and on the other there is a tsunami as a result of this action. In another way, I can say that every thought entails a certain consequence.
