To expand a bit more , I have been thinking about something similar lately, I'd have called it 'The Wraith Effect' or the 'reverse butterfly
effect' or something like that.
Most people know of the butterfly effect, go back hundreds of thousand of years in time , step on a butterfly and then head forward to your time and
see what has changed? or more simply and localised, you invent a time machine, go back in time and meet your grandfather when he was a child and by
your intereferrance a freak accident causes his death. How could you be born to invent a time machine and by your actions your grandfather dies?
Paradox bigtime? confusing but applicable to the Wraith effect in reverse.
From my reasoning a Wraith is a ghost, but its also known as a portent of serious change :
An apparition of a living person that appears as a portent just before that person's death.
The ghost of a dead person.
Something shadowy and insubstantial.
And I feel it's applicable into what I was thinking.
Yes we can be nice to others if they are not nice to us and it MAY affect their actions during the day, but the 'Wraith effect' has wider
Take todays world, violent, greedy, self centred, ignorant and stubborn.
We kill hundreds of thousands a day, we kill people for money, for property, for a fish supper and even for 20 pence or a wrong look or an imagined
We have no conscience or forethought of our current actions that 'could' affect the world yet to come.
We bleat on about the state of the world, about the economy, the wars, the government and how we cannot change our situation, it is true we CANNOT
change our situation if we continue along the path of ignorance.
We must think about 'what if' instead of 'how'?
For example the 'Wraith effect' is never more prevalent that 'thinking about your actions' now, and what 'could' happen if you went along with
Here's my thinking for the 'Wraith effect'.
You are a soldier fighting in one of the many wars around the globe, or even a gang member intent on 'staking' your claim to fame.
You kill someone , a young man or a young woman, before they have a child, this unborn 'could' have been instrumental in changing the face of
You have killed them because you were told do, because they believed different to you, now this unborn cannot achieve their destiny or help mankind
along a more productive path.
Yes the child could have destroyed humanity but its a chance we'd have to had taken.
The 'Wraith effect' / reverse butterfly effect means that by NOT taking a destructive action now will have future implications in the long term, not
only for the following day , but for many years to come.
And who's to say that this young person sees the death staring down a barrel at them, they close their eyes and expect the worst, but instead of a
flash of fire and pain, open their eyes and see the death denyed them, they realise they have got another chance at life, maybe they'd do something
productive or beneficial and continue on the change of fortune. maybe they won't , maybe they would , thats personal choice for you.
If we could have a year off of war and killing, either militarily, corporately either legit or *erm* not quite legitimately ( say Mafiosi kind of
business) and we ,instead of being upset at a slight, or an insult , just turn around say " A year's reprive!" , maybe then we can see a change
for the better for all of humanity.
A year of peace and of no killing would have a profound effect of the minds of the people, a year of peace means that maybe peace reins supreme and
that forgiveness, tolerance and understanding become the norm instead of arguing, killing and seeking profit. A shift in the perception of man for the
It may seems like an alternate timeline as General eyes and Busymind have said , but its the only timeline we'll ever know but maybe we can try and
change it for our benefit.?
And like the future a wraith is shadowy and insubstantial until the veil is lifted and we arrive at the future.
SO here's my propsal to you all, tell the world , theres no point telling our governments of religeous leaders at this point in time as they would
not listen, but if we as the people gather in numbers sooner or later they WOULD have to listen to us all, tell the world's people " Take a year off
of wars, off of killing, live and let live, be understanding, and most of all be TOLERANT", your actions now may have beneficial effects for the
future , but if you are content in moaning about your situation , worrying about money, or lack of fame, or simply killing because someone tells you
too , then by all means ignore this request, because the future wil have no place for you, so you alone must decide are part of the solution? or part
of the problem?
