Hi Folks,

After replying to this interesting thread here : www.abovetopsecret.com...

I thought i would create a thread to let you picture what it would be like if man was wiped off the face of the earth and replaced by Bonobos :

Bonobos are one of humankind’s closest living relatives, sharing more than 98% of our DNA. These great apes are complex beings with profound intelligence, emotional expression, and sensitivity.

In contrast to the competitive, male-dominated culture of chimpanzees, bonobo society is peaceful, matriarchal, and more egalitarian. Sex transcends reproduction...

Frequently referred to as the “Make Love, Not War” primate, bonobos have a reputation for being docile and diplomatic in their social and sexual relationships. Their generally peaceful and cooperative society is attributed to the evolution of a highly complex social system.

www.bonobo.org...

No more war... no more killing... just peace and harmony with as much nookie as you want...

I will let you contemplate these 2 videos :



And with a little music :



Looking forward to your reactions folks

Kindest respects

Rodinus

If we replace our current social structure with the one depicted in the videos, nobody would ever die due to conflicts anymore.

Instead we would quazillionuckle the world population from 7 Billion to 35 Billion in less than 10 years, and all be trampled to death or die of starvation.

I think I like the current world with the occasional war better.

So natural death, accidents, natural disaters or being eaten by predators etc etc would not count then?

Nature has a great way of naturally controlling populations

Even tho what Bonobos do as Natural, i would never want to do that, i think its a disgusting behaviour ..using sex as a tool... oh wait...

Humans can comprehend much more mental emotion than primates, for them sex might be just an act but for humans its much more than that.

Bonobos also practice incest, sodomy and pedophilia.

I think that what you also have to remember when saying that is that old and new world primates primates do not have the same "rational" thought as we humans do, so therefore the 3 words mentioned above would not be "taboo" or unnatural for them as it is for us. If you see what i mean?

And as for sex just being an act with this particular species of primate... i am not too sure, i will need to dig into finding some peer reviews.

Kindest respects

Natural deaths, accidents and desasters did not prevent humanity to reach 7 billion individuals - while fighting wars all the time.

So the answer to your question is a profound "No it would evidently not".

It has nothing to do with taboo, Ok Sodomy are okay, if is not rape. I do not see any detrimental effects, but Incest is biologically bad(too much mutations from repeated genes), also Pedophilia has no benefit and only mental scar.

Like i said maybe it would be okay for primates, i'm not even sure if they suffer from child abuse or any type or trauma unlike humans.

But a society of humans doing such things.. sleeping with anyone they like... anyone raise the child... etc etc.. it would have to be a emotion withdrawn society.

Insightful post or monkey porn?



Still not sure. I do get your sentiment, but not crazy about the idea of not being around.

Because we humans have the means of preventing many of the deaths too, take into consideration our health technology, means of being able to protect ourselves from accidents, natural disaster warning technology etc... (i am not saying that all of our modern technology keeps us alive much longer) BUT a major part does!

Thanks for your input


Kindest respects

I totally agree with you Lucid, BUT, AND as you commented also, these are primates...

A couple of peer review articles can be found here :

Ok, i had better go now as Mrs R is giving me grief... it's my turn to cook!!!

well, as i'm getting a visit from the better half later, i did not watch the vids as i'm getting on a bit and would prefer to save my chi..
i like the whole premise though and would certainly give it a try - i think you are right that the world would be a somewhat nice place.. except when i find out that i can throw my faeces at those i disagree with and not get subsequently locked up

Yep... just imagine, you would have to make love with the primate policemonkey who arrested you for throwing that lump of poo

If humans were Bonobos, guys would be having sex with each other and that will help them to relax instead of turning so aggressive and war-like and killing each other all the time.

That would be way better than the world we live in - a paradise actually.
