The authors of another popular book on the science of chaos, Turbulent Mirror, give us more food for thought here. For example, the butterfly effect is the phenomenon of a tiny action, when amplified throughout a system, having unexpectedly disproportionate effects. They write that, "Paradoxically, the insights of the newest science share the vision of the world presented in many of the world's oldest indigenous and spiritual traditions." I found it easy to read and enlightening.
