A while ago, I made my first blog post on Murphy's Law and The Phineas and Ferb Effect. It actually was just a bunch of facts about these 2 phenomenons. But now, I want want to get deeper into this. Today, I will be explaining how both of these are probabilities with an area effect.
Just a Probability
As I mentioned above, ML and TP&FE are just probabilities. It means that when someone has Murphy's Law, something good may happen, or maybe not. And vice versa. But, the negative probability is higher when someone with Murphy's Law is around. Otherwise, there would be an equal chance of bad or good happening!
And now, for the important part. In A Christmas Peril, Milo invites all Murphy's for the Christmas. The episode's synopsis says that "Milo surprises his parents by inviting the extended Murphy family for Christmas, multiplying the effects of Murphy's Law." See where I'm going here? If more Murphy's occupy the same space, the probability of something bad happening goes higher! Maybe this is why Phineas and Ferb are so lucky - there are two of them!
What else multiplies this probability? Well, the Murphy's Law Suit sets the probability of something bad happening to 100%. So, Phineas and Ferb somehow found a way to multiply the effects of the probability. It's not really strange, however, because the brothers are inventors. But still, I think it's weird.
With an Area Effect
As I mentioned in my last post, both of the phenomenons are limited to one area, as they are just probability ion fields. By the way, this is exactly why the Phineas and Ferb Effect works. The negative probability ions cannot occupy the same space as the positive, so they are going in the only direction that is possible, which apparently will be the desired direction.
So, when you go out of the ion field, the probability doesn't affects you anymore, and there is 50/50 chance of either good or bad thing happening. The diameter of the ion field is unknown, but it is possible that it varies. As I also said in the last blog, it was said that Murphy's Law gets weaker when someone who has it is sick. Maybe the size of the ion field gets smaller.
And this is it for now. As you may have already guessed, I will make more blogs about ML and TPaFE. I'd really like to see some of your theories about this. Thanks for reading!
