The Butterfly Effect & the Fortean on 'Beyond the Strange'
Updated: Jul 25
Recently I was invited onto "Beyond the Strange" live talkshow, hosted by Dave Cruz and Russ Bailey. With the two of them having a fascination with researching and investigating the paranormal --from hauntings, to poltergeists, to UFOs, and such-- the three of us had a fun conversation about the role of chaos theory and mysticism in understanding these other unexplainable topics.
Chaos theory, while not a universal theory-of-everything, is quintessential to understanding the seemingly-random from an existentialist point-of-view. Just like the flap of a butterfly's wings causing a typhoon halfway around the world, the human mind can do fantastic things --and also just like the flap of a butterfly's wings causing that typhoon, just because we might not be able to tell the cause from our human vantage point, doesn't mean it didn't happen like so.
Lasso the moon!
