You feed it right.
You exercise it right.
You give it enough sleep.
Pleasure time and a day/s of rest when needed.

Be good to the monkey.
And the monkey will be good to you.

Who is the monkey?

Are you suggesting that it might be unwise to "Shock the Monkey"?

Unfortunate, if true, since a well shocked monkey is often motivated to climb out of his tree.

And that's when the Magic happens!

The monkey is our animal nature (body and flesh) right? If you treat your body good it will give you a long and happy life.

I agree with you. When I read the title it reminded me of Gurdjieff saying not to forget to feed the wolf.

We first need to figure out how we define monkey ! "Monkeys are haplorhine ("dry-nosed") primates, a paraphyletic group generally possessing tails and consisting of approximately 260 known living species." or , we just mean monkey business? aka the dumb cute thing that does things for tricks?


in both cases . It would be him , the monkey ! Why because the first act started with you ! you were good to the monkey , then the monkey reacted. and returned the favor. But it started from you first. then got a reaction. Two events , two beings , two different things not one!

He is monkey
You are human

spiritually on that !


Its just like Jesus , God , The father . so many people think this is all in one trinity . but its not . They all seperate from each other , and no amount of bs will bring them together

Ok so 3NL1GHT3N3D1, ClownFish and seedofchucky are right.

A free Summers Eve for you or your lady
friend. Lol

The Monkey is the body,
and You are the spirit inhabiting
the body of a monkey.

Be good to the Monkey,
and the Monkey will be good to you.

Best and funniest view of life ive heard
in years.

Coomba98

Edit. Actually reading back i think i may have
misinterpreted seedofchucky post.
(sorry long day and tired.)

seedofchucky if your answer was the correct one then...
A Summers Eve for you or your lady friend.

Hey who knows right? A better question and answer to your riddle would be who is not the monkey?

But you know, as they say. Don't ask who "they" are, or who says that, for that to is just a saying. I'm just saying ya know. But anyways! As the saying goes God loves all the funny monkeys, not that I necessarily believe in God, or the plural case of that word.

But it must be true since were still here and not space dust, a paradox indeed. However the unfunny monkeys will just have to be tolerated, till such a time as they become more funny. After all we would not want to spank the monkey for such intolerable behavior.

Lol heres a mind fck.

Ok real quick as i dont like typing on my mob

The theory:
You probably heard of the theory about how can
we prove we were not created yesterday and had
our current memories dating back to your birth.

Theory 2 ontop of above theory.
Were all in a computer matrix type program.
When were in there we only have the memories
of the avatar. Wake up in true reality all alien like
with your true alien memories plus what you
played in the matrix.

Everyday you go back and play you.... or do you?

How do you know you played you yesterday?

The Monkey is everyone. Being good to yourself is instinctive until the discovery of harmful pleasures.

Being good to others is only instinctive until selfishness takes root.

Many are good to themselves and take care of their health yet still die young. Being good to yourself is no guarantee that yourself will be good to you.

Neither is being good to others a guarantee that good will be returned.

It is to do good without the expectation of return that the Monkey rewards. the Monkey is the All.

Or here's another theory. Were all some sort of meat people things creatures, and we live and do things while screwing around on a rock which is mostly water and yet we have the gall to call this water ball "earth" showing how intelligent we are. Oh and which by the way is contained in a great big void of nothingness. And when we die? Well that's it. The end, no afterlife, no matrix, no angels, and no demons, no parallel dimensions no nothing, but the moment here and now, which will one day fade. And that will be all.

Ohh! Spooky right? And people wonder why religions and believes and mystical theories were invented.
Who know, maybe the monkey is all, and all that exists, and when the monkey perishes. Well then the monkey is no more.

Hay man.

Or when we die were just worm food.

But its fun thinking about the what ifs.

Love the monkey analogy. Still laughing.

The matrix one i thought of years ago.

Abstract conundrums. Lovm.
