Thank you for the reply.

That is true. Don't get me wrong, the awareness you speak of is essential. I guess what I was saying is that awareness does not
generate action by itself, that is why the monkeys that climb the stairs are important IMHO. Because even though you are aware of the part you play in
the scenario, you still must also become aware that you do not have to play that part. Knowing who you are is not the same as knowing you can become
Stopping momentum then leads to what momentum will this new awareness gain now?
I think, if we want to stop any momentum, we must also consider what momentum we will generate after self awareness is attained in relation to a
situation like the video details.
Otherwise self awareness is pointless as what the video is suggesting is that the system described is an unquestioned self repeating exercise that is
detrimental to anyone who steps outside of a role. A role that is defined by its potential to effect others that is induced by an outside source, but
enforced within by a population effect by that source.
You can be self aware in spite of all of that. And still maintain the momentum of such a negative system.
Many people haven't stopped their momentum to gain that awareness, and shockingly others have and still choose to remain in that condition
... hence why I said:
the rest is up each one of us.
I don't necessarily agree that momentum needs to be stopped, although I think it should be in order to gain a proper understanding, but that it can
also be simply given a different direction by a new role suddenly appearing.
It is shocking though that some can become aware of what they are in terms of a scenario like the video details and yet they neither stop or seek a
different role. I think that is a point the conclusion the video possibly offers, and I think it can also refer to monkeys that are self aware in a
system like the video and still choose to be part of the system. I think this is one way you could interpret the video as it offers us an example of a
law enforcement officer beating someone.
