Shift in Consciousness and the Hundredth Monkey Phenomenon
The Japanese monkey, Macaca Fuscata, has been observed in the wild for a period of 30 years.
In 1952, on the island of Koshima scientists, were providing monkeys with sweet potatoes dropped in sand. The monkeys liked the taste of the raw sweet potatoes, but they found the dirt unpleasant.
An 18 month old female named Imo started to wash the potatoes in a nearby stream and then taught her mother how to do this.
Between 1952 and 1958 all the young monkeys started to wash their potatoes. Some adult did as well and some didn’t.
In the autumn of 1958 a certain number of monkeys were washing their sweet potatoes – the exact number is not known. Let us suppose that that day it was the 100 th monkey that washed the potato.
In the evening every monkey was washing their sweet potatoes and also monkeys on other islands and the mainland troop of monkeys at Takasakiyama began washing their sweet potatoes.
So when a certain critical number achieves an awareness, this new awareness may be communicated from mind to mind across distance.
We can make that shift happen, when we start choosing [intlink id=”30″ type=”page”]thoughts [/intlink]and words consciously.
This example also demonstrates that learning takes place by example regardless of whether it is directly observed.
Although the exact number may vary, The Hundredth Monkey phenomenon means that there is a point when another one tunes into a new awareness, that this awareness reaches almost everyone.

Birds, Blue Tits, in England learned how to pick through the foil on top of milk bottles and eat the cream and a very similar phenomenon happened when a certain amount of birds were doing this birds everywhere in England where helping themselves to the cream.
