The difference between a chain reaction and the domino effect is a matter of independence. In a chain reaction all the components are linked by probability and predictability. With dominoes each piece stands in relation to the next, but independently. This allows for even the most minute difference to foil the prediction and something that was never thought or imagined happens. I think I have always been and shall remain a domino: slightly off but my own design.
