Brand New Day

In chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state. Fractal patterns and Golden Ratio Pulses have been discovered in the stars, and we are stardust. A parents love is a strong example of chaos theory, where love is passed down from generation to generation, regardless of blood line or adoption, creating a fractal of loving family. 'Brand New Day' is a narrative short without voice over, set to the music of Big D and the Kid's Table, 'Brand New Day'. Song 'Brand New Day' is based on the solo by Brad in Rocky Horror Picture Show.
