The Butterfly Effect

The Butterfly Effect is an explanation of how unpredictable large systems can be because even small changes can  can have large ramifications. The name The Butterfly Effect itself draws from the notion that something as simple as a butterfly flapping its wings can change the wind patterns enough so that it may eventually cause a tornado. The Butterfly effect is also named the Chaos Theory because with such massive events theoretically stemming from such minute phenomena, it is impossible to predict anything that is effected by The Butterfly Effect.
