[David Icke]…The Japanese monkey, Macaca fuscata, had been observed in the wild for a period of over 30 years.
In 1952, on the island of Koshima, scientists were providing monkeys with sweet potatoes dropped in the sand. The monkeys liked the taste of the raw sweet potatoes, but they found the dirt unpleasant.
An 18-month-old female named Imo found she could solve the problem by washing the potatoes in a nearby stream. She taught this trick to her mother. Her playmates also learned this new way and they taught their mothers too.
This cultural innovation was gradually picked up by various monkeys before the eyes of the scientists.
Between 1952 and 1958 all the young monkeys learned to wash the sandy sweet potatoes to make them more palatable.
Only the adults who imitated their children learned this social improvement. Other adults kept eating the dirty sweet potatoes.
Then something startling took place. In the autumn of 1958, a certain number of Koshima monkeys were washing sweet potatoes — the exact number is not known.
Let us suppose that when the sun rose one morning there were 99 monkeys on Koshima Island who had learned to wash their sweet potatoes.
Let’s further suppose that later that morning, the hundredth monkey learned to wash potatoes.
THEN IT HAPPENED!
By that evening almost everyone in the tribe was washing sweet potatoes before eating them.
The added energy of this hundredth monkey somehow created an ideological breakthrough!
A most surprising thing observed by these scientists was that the habit of washing sweet potatoes then jumped over the sea –
Colonies of monkeys on other islands and the mainland troop of monkeys at Takasakiyama began washing their sweet potatoes.
Thus, when a certain critical number achieves an awareness, this new awareness may be communicated from mind to mind.
Although the exact number may vary, this Hundredth Monkey Phenomenon means that when only a limited number of people know of a new way, it may remain the conscious property of these people.
But there is a point at which if only one more person tunes-in to a new awareness, a field is strengthened so that this awareness is picked up by almost everyone!
Are you afraid of bees? I’m not. If I don’t see bees in summer and spring, I worry. My organic garden relies on bees pollinating the flowers and food in my yard. They are critical to our food supply. Without them we will be hungrier because there will be less food. We aren’t sure what causes colony collapse, but I’m sure pesticides contribute to it.
Plant mints: Peppermint. Oregano (great miticide), Thyme, Melissa. The bees will feast on these throughout the year, and they will get the added health benefits, too. They love clovers, calendulas, sunflowers, borage, milk thistle, mullein, and whitethorne. Don’t forget the dandelion!
Whether you have a garden or not, know that bees are our friends. Rubbing fresh Rosemary on the neck, arms, wrists and legs keeps bees and other bugs off of you while outdoors. I grow Rosemary around the yard. They are beautiful in pots, are perennials and look great all year long.
Enjoy this stunning video of humming birds, bees and butterflies. This is THE best video you will ever see, to date, on this subject. So close, you can actually see… well, you tell me. About the .40 seconds in is my favorite part so far but there are so many things to see. The ability of man to record and understand this stuff is just mind boggling. We owe it to these creatures to protect them.
