The Butterfly Effect ~Everything Affects, Everything Else

"The Butterfly Effect" refers to an idea that illustrates how small initial differences may lead to large unforeseen consequences over time.

Nearly 45 years ago, during the 139th meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Edward Lorenz posed a question: “Does the flap of a butterfly’s wings in Brazil set off a tornado in Texas?”

Although this question is one of an extreme, everything is connected to everything else, one way or another. So yes, everything affects, everything else.

“No man lives unto himself; for every living thing is bound by cords to every other living thing."

" By the sweet breaths of God all life is bound in one; so if you touch a fiber of a living thing you send a thrill from the center to the outer bounds of life. And when you crush beneath your foot the meanest worm, you shake the throne of God, and cause the sword of right to tremble in its sheath."

The concept that our actions affects the outer reaches of this universe, is hard to grasp. The reality is that we are One with everything. Our thoughts, words, and actions vibrate the core of the universe, because we "are" this Universe. There really is no separation. All things are Connected, All things are one.

"The universal God is one, yet he is more than one; all things are God; all things are one."
