Let's say you wanted to determine what day in a certain amount of time had been the most influential in our lives today. I theorized that whatever the time period, the first day in that time period would automatically be the most influential day. I though this because as you go farther back in time, the amount of different possible "histories" would be greater and greater, and as minuscule events happened further and further back in time, they would "eliminate" more and more possible histories. To me, this seams similar to the "butterfly effect" in chaos theory. Is it? Am I applying this in the wrong place?
