“The Hundredth Monkey Effect is a hypothetical phenomenon in which a new behaviour (or idea) is said to spread by unexplained means from one group to other related groups once a critical number of members of one group exhibit the new behaviour (or acknowledge the new idea).” – Ron Amundson, 1985
It originated in the 1950s when scientists studying a group of monkeys on an island off Japan observed a group learning to wash sweet potatoes. These monkeys had previously been observed eating the sandy sweet potatoes.
One day when roughly 100 of the monkeys learned to do it, the researchers found that all the monkeys in the region learned to do it!
Clearly, those monkeys didn't have access to the internet and couldn't TWEET this new idea so why did those other monkeys just start washing their food?
The story still illustrates the connected nature of ideas and knowledge. When great ideas surface, they have a way of organically spreading to others.
Have you ever had an idea and suddenly you discover somebody else has the same idea? Somebody on the other side of the world with no relationship to you at all?
I am sure you have, I am sure you do this all the time.
Is this coincidence? OR
Is this consciousness?
My thoughts are, we are all cosmically and consciously connected through our thoughts, feelings and emotions and energetically we can transmit these frequencies of thoughts etc, freely to others.
Unconsciously, conscious behaviour.
So are we at the affect of others and are they affected by us?
So, surely that means that we can direct our energies, our thoughts, feelings etc toward a collective consciousness for, say, peace, freedom, choice and harmony?
That we are capable of contributing far more to the collective consciousness than we realise?
What can you contribute today that just may change the world??
