Monkey Colonies

Wednesday, November 6th, 2013

The Hundredth Monkey is the name of a new myth. Off the coast of Japan, scientists have been studying monkey colonies. The monkeys out of trees to collect the sweet potatoes scientists left them on the beaches, to collect them and eat them filled with sand. One day a young female, Imo, began to wash sweet potatoes in the sea before eating. Imo later began to teach their parents and relatives to do the same, maybe the sand bothered to chew. At first only the adults followed suit, and later do almost the entire colony. One day, observers saw that all the monkeys on the island were washing potatoes. The most fascinating thing was that when this change occurred, the behavior of all monkeys in the rest of the islands changed, all washed their sweet potatoes, despite the fact that colonies of monkeys had no direct contact between them.

For those who need to change the world and have the faith and conscience who are able, this theory encourages them, they get power and evokes them what moves them and leads them to be deeply themselves. Apart from being motivated to make a change on the outside is actually a metaphor for what happens inside each of us.
