Thus… nothing made sense.
After watching that clip again it made more sense. Though I still wondered how this came to be a scientific theory. To me it just seems to be how life goes, but there is an explanation for everything.
Then i remembered a scene from Benjamin Button… Click this.
Conceptualizing these occurrences begun in 1961 when Edward Lorentz was using his computer to forecast the weather. He needed to run his calculations again but instead of inserting all the information in again he saved some from the previous run. To his surprise the result was completely different then his first. Checking his process he realized he rounded a couple numbers and this was the cause of change. This proved to him that the most minuscule change could cause a dramatic change in results. He called it the butterfly effect. From this he also concluded that predicting long-term weather forecasts would be impossible to predict.
Chaos theory is the study of nonlinear dynamics. This might sound strange because the word “chaos” when talking about chaos theory is defined as an “apparent lack of order in a system that nevertheless obeys particular laws or rules” and not how we usually associate it as simply being disorderly. This science is non linear thus it cannot be predicted. It also the reason it is challenged to be a science at all because of the lack of hard evidence. But chaos theory is simply a way of explaining the way in which the smallest event can lead to the next to ultimately cause an unexpected change.
