Из интервью посла РФ в Израиле:

Ray Bradbury has a short story about a man who returns to classical Greece in a time machine and accidentally steps on a flower. After the machine takes him back to present-day America, he discovers that in the short period of his absence a totalitarian regime has taken over, and only because [of the consequences that ensued from the fact that] he stepped on a flower in ancient Greece. You have to be careful with the past.

В оригинале, однако, главный герой отправляется в доисторический период и наступает на бабочку.
