This has briefly been brought up in the past, but never really discussed.
And the one or two threads that tried to discuss it failed quickly and miserably.
So lets see if we can have a good thread on the subject.
The Hundredth Monkey Effect is a social change that ALLEGEDLY happens when a sudden spontaneous and mysterious leap of group consciousness is
achieved. This leap of consciousness ALLEGEDLY spreads from directly effected people to those who aren't directly effected. Those not directly
effected by the group change, change anyways because of an unknown metaphysical element.
The Hundredth Monkey Effect
The hundredth monkey effect is a supposed phenomenon in which a behavior or thought spreads rapidly from one group to all related groups once a
critical number of initiates is reached. By generalization it means the instantaneous spreading of an idea or ability to the remainder of a population
once a certain portion of that population has heard of the new idea or learned the new ability by some unknown process currently beyond the scope of
science. The story behind this supposed phenomenon originated with Lawrence Blair and Lyall Watson in the mid-to-late 1970s, who claimed that it was
the observation of Japanese scientists.
The early information on this alleged effect has been widely discredited.
Science doesn't seem to be able to prove it exists.
However, DOES IT?? (I don't know ... I'm asking .... )
Is there a 'global mind' that all of humanity is a part of, but that we are unaware of?
Do people who resonate at the same frequency of consciousness become part of a 100th monkey effect .. 'tuning' in to what others of the same
frequency are becoming aware of or doing and thus they make the social/spiritual changes with them?
Isnt' this 'Hundredth Monkey Effect' kind of like Jung’s 'Collective Unconscious'?
or a bit like Freud's "archaic remnants'?? Not exactly the same, but a bit on the same line?
If there is a 'Hundredth Monkey Effect' or 'Collective Unconscious' does that mean humanity will reach a critical mass ... either for the better
or for the worse .. and all humanity will move in the same direction? Critical mass for the better would mean enlightenment and a possible
dimensional shift. Critical mass for the worse would mean backtracking to the primal.
If there is a 'Hundredth Monkey Effect', would it split humanity in opposite directions? Some of humanity growing and evolving spiritually together
and others in humanity sinking together? Polarized. Making different groups of humanity occupying the same planet??
Do we see any evidence of the Hundredth Monkey Effect other than what allegedly was observed by
Watson in 'Lifetide'
I see peoples behaviors rubbing off on those who are in direct contact with them .. either in person or via electronic communication etc. But I
don't know if the metaphysical 'Hundredth Monkey Effect' can explain tides in society changes.
What do you think? Hundredth Monkey Effect ... yes or no??
Group Global Consciousness? Yes or no?
And I guess shared Karmic debt would enter into this as well.
Does it exist? What do you think and why?
