From the work of scientist Edward Lorenz (1907-2008) came the metaphor used for the concept of chaos, according to which the flapping of a butterfly's wings can cause a hurricane - meaning that a small variation in initial conditions will determine a very different outcome in the future. Observing the uncertainty of today's societies, I think on this "butterfly effect" metaphor and on how each of us can be an agent of change, contributing to transform chaos into a beautiful palette of colors.
