- Globalization in its literal sense is the process of transformation of local or regional phenomena into a global one. It can be described as a process by which the people of the world are unified into a single society and function together.
- This process is a combination of economic, technological, sociocultural and political forces. Globalization is often used to refer to economic globalization, that is, integration of national economies into the international economy through trade, foreign direct investment, capital flows, migration, and the spread of technology.
- From to integrate (from Latin integratus, the past participle of integrare ‘to make a whole’, from integer ‘whole’) + -ation. The act or process of making whole or entire.
- Butterfly Effect is a phrase that encapsulates the more technical notion of sensitive dependence on initial conditions in chaos theory. Small variations of the initial condition of a dynamical system may produce large variations in the long term behavior of the system.
- The term “butterfly effect” itself is related to the work of Edward Lorenz. The phrase refers to the idea that a butterfly’s wings might create tiny changes in the atmosphere that may ultimately alter the path of a tornado or delay, accelerate or even prevent the occurrence of a tornado in a certain location. The flapping wing represents a small change in the initial condition of the system, which causes a chain of events leading to large-scale alterations of events.
- Chapter four of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s story “Winter Dreams” contains the following sentence: “[The house] was sturdy to accentuate [Judy’s] slightness – as if to show what a breeze could be generated by a butterfly’s wing.”
