Butterfly Effect

I have a weakness for time travel, sci-fi, fantasy type entertainment. At the moment it’s the show Travellers currently on Netflix. 

The premise is that in the very far future humankind is extremely technically advanced, to the point that we can send a human consciousness (Traveller) into the past to inhabit a human body right as it dies, preventing the death and allowing the Traveller to take over the life of the original human. While living this life they also work with other Travellers to complete missions  intended to improve  conditions in the future, (apparently it’s not so good). 

The Travellers aren’t allowed to change the course of history, they can’t save a life or take a life,  unless its specifically part of the assigned mission. This is to prevent the Butterfly Effect, all actions and reactions will shape the future.  But.. won’t the very fact that the person they are inhabiting is supposed to be dead but isn’t, start to change things? 

After all, every day-to-day decision, action or reaction will have an impact on someone or something, maybe not in an immediately recognizable way but slowly over time the cumulative effect will become visible. 

Epiphany! Isn’t that what life is anyway?

Even without a time travelling consciousness couldn’t we always take care that our actions and reactions create a future that doesn’t need to be reshaped?

Small events add up so why not choose kindness, show gratitude, bite your tongue, be patient… listen. 

Be the Butterfly Effect.

  2. Love watching Travellers and what you say is so true. Every little thing we do has an impact, and to some it can be huge.

      Thank you, I’m so glad you liked it. Yes we are, and when we ‘travel’ through life we’ll learn more and go further if we do so with an open heart and mind, and always with respect.
