The butterfly paradox is the idea that many of us are flawed in our desire to have the freedom and the beauty of the butterfly but are unwilling to be the caterpillar. It takes almost a full month for the small egg to complete metamorphosis and turn into the alluring butterfly. Some psychologists say that it takes 21 days to make a habit, and 90 days to make it a permanent lifestyle change. Philosopher Chuang Tzu once dreamt he was a butterfly, it was so incredibly vivid he felt the wind underneath his wings and he truly believed he had changed, but upon waking up realized it wasn’t true. If only it were that easy, but it’s a lot more than wishful thinking. Although Descartes would argue that if dreams feel real, who’s to say they’re not? While he is dreaming, he does not know it is a dream, so therefore let’s throw in another coin and keep on dreaming for one more spin cycle.
