Weekly Writing Challenge: The Butterfly Effect

WordPress Weekly writing Challenge: The Butterfly effect at: 


from wordpress: “In the Butterfly Effect, initial conditions that exist all play a part in happenings that progress around us. To describe its namesake example, the flap of a butterfly’s wings, one scientist proposed, could affect the course of a hurricane, in addition to all of the other existing conditions at that time: weather, location, winds, and the like. Nothing, it would seem, is too small to have a profound impact on the world.xxx

“One Small Change xxx Do you think everything is connected? Many philosophers, writers, and spiritual guides have claimed that it is.xxx “xxx  For this week’s writing challenge, tell us xxx: The concept of everything being connected — or everything being one — can be pretty emotionally invigorating for some…xxx”

(blog admin’s note on the so-called “butterfly effect”: This, and its variations and varying commonplace illustrations, should, of course, not be taken literally; this and its variations are just  metaphors for the principle that small events combined may or could lead to a big event — the operative phrase being “may or could”, that is,  the cause-and-effect connection between the proverbial butterfly wing and a cyclone cannot be proven, that is, it is not possible to examine, at least not yet possible to examine, all events through all space and time in one instant or in one infinite cosmic manner. we’re not god, we cannot see the entire universe in all dimensions in one moment, at least not yet. so we really cannot show how the bat of an eyelash or the flutter of a butterfly , combined with other minute events,  contribute to a whirlwind in the pacific so … it is just a general principle … don’t sweat it…)

The limerick-post and the video

(with apologies to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, “The Arrow and the Song”)

I shot a silly post into cyberspace

It fell on screens though I cannot trace

For, so swiftly it transmitted, the byte

Could not follow it in its flight.


i  breathed a song into a video

It fell to Youtube, and became a show

For many can view and then follow

Even if their internet is Philippine-slow


Long, long afterward in a voyage

I found the rhyming being reposted

And the music video from beginning to end

I found again in the heart of a long-lost friend.


(… awat na….)
