About the Theme

Metamorphosis is the evolution of an organism after birth by going through several stages interspersed with many incidences that contribute to the refinement of its personality. Let us take the butterfly, for example, a small creature wandering from one place to another, gaining attention with its attractive and delicate wings, beginning its life from egg to larva and cocoon.

When we mention the wings of the butterfly soon comes to mind the impact of the butterfly and the butterfly effect, as Darwish said:


"The butterfly effect cannot be seen,

The butterfly effect endures"


The butterfly effect is an idea that says that a small change can make much bigger changes happen

This effect grants the power to cause a hurricane in China to a butterfly flapping its wings in New Mexico. It may take a very long time, but the connection is real. If the butterfly had not flapped its wings at just the right point in space/time, the hurricane would not have happened.

This so-called "butterfly effect" is used to explain why chaotic systems like the weather can't be predicted more than a few days in advance and is really more of a chaos theory.


And from this idea our topic of this day emerged, and our mission is to remind you of the importance of not underestimating the work you do, even if it seems small and not worthy of anything. The greatest achievements in your life can start from a small change. This change can be as simple as waking up early or doing your bed. This change that came from within you will radiate to the people around you, and so on, making you the first hand in a great change that will expand throughout your life and the lives of the ones that surround you.


عن الفكرة

"التّحوّل" عملية تطوّر الكائن بعد الولادة ليمرّ بعدّة مراحل يتخلّلها العديد من المواقف الّتي تساهم في صقل شخصيّته. فلنتّخذ الفراشة مثلًا: كائنٌ صغير الحجم يجوب من مكان إلى آخر، يجذب العيون بألوان أجنحته الجذّابة، يبدأ حياته من بيضةٍ إلى يرقةٍ ثمّ شرنقة. أجنحته الرّقيقة، الرّقيقة جدًّا، و عندما نذكر أجنحة الفراشة سرعان ما يتبادر إلى ذهننا أثر الفراشة، فأثر الفراشة كما قال درويش:

(أَثر الفراشة لا يُرَى

أَثر الفراشة لا يزولُ)

فرفرفة جناحي فراشةٍ في الصّين قد يتسبّب عنه فيضاناتٍ وأعاصيرَ ورياحٍ هادرةٍ في أبعد الأماكن في أمريكا! فحسب نظريّة تأثير الفراشة أن الأحداث متناهية الصغر، قد تشكّل نتائج هائلة الاتّساع. و مصطلح تأثير الفراشة هو استعارةٌ لفظيّةٌ تُستخدم للتّعبير عن نظريّة "الفوضى"، وهي نظريّة فلسفيّة فيزيائيّة تعتقد بأنّ الأسباب الصّغيرة لها تأثيرٌ واضحٌ على النّتائج في المدى البعيد.

و اتّخذنا من هذا فكرةَ موضوعِ يومنا لنذكّر الجميع بأهمّيّة عدم الاستخفاف بالأعمال الّتي يقومون بها، وإن بدت صغيرة و لا تسوى شيئًا، فأكبر إنجازات حياتك يمكن أن تبدأ من تغيّرٍ صغيرٍ، هذا التّغيّر يمكن أن يكون باستيقاظك باكرًا أو ترتيب غرفتك، أو أي تغيّرٍ تشجّعه على مستوى عائلتك أو أصدقائك. فابدأ التغيير من داخلك، ثمّ اجعله كدائرة تتّسع مع الوقت لتشمل جميع من حولك.

About TEDx,

x = independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

About TED

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman. 

The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver, British Columbia. TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TED Talks are posted daily; TED Translators, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established The Audacious Project that takes a collaborative approach to funding ideas with the potential to create change at thrilling scale; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
