Also says a lot about our species

Start with a cage containing five
monkeys. Inside the cage, hang a
banana on a string and place a set of
stairs under it. Before long, a monkey
will go to the stairs and start to climb
towards the banana. As soon as he
touches the stairs, spray all of the
other monkeys with cold water. After a
while, another monkey makes an
attempt with the same result - all the
other monkeys are sprayed with cold
water. Pretty soon, when another
monkey tries to climb the stairs, the
other monkeys will try to prevent it.
Now, put away the cold water. Remove
one monkey from the cage and replace
it with a new one. The new monkey
sees the banana and wants to climb
the stairs. To his surprise and horror,
all of the other monkeys attack him.
After another attempt and attack, he
knows that if he tries to climb the
stairs, he will be assaulted.
Next, remove another of the original
five monkeys and replace it with a new
one. The newcomer goes to the stairs
and is attacked. The previous
newcomer takes part in the
punishment with enthusiasm!
Likewise, replace a third original
monkey with a new one, then a fourth,
then the fifth. Every time the newest
monkey takes to the stairs, he is
attacked. Most of the monkeys that
are beating him have no idea why they
were not permitted to climb the stairs
or why they are participating in the
beating of the newest monkey. After
replacing all the original monkeys,
none of the remaining monkeys have
ever been sprayed with cold water.
Nevertheless, no monkey ever again
approaches the stairs to try for the
Why not?
Because as far as they know that's the
way it's always been done around
This also says a lot about us human-
beings too.......
We follow Religion, customs and
traditions exactly in the same manner,
without even thinking once, that we
are born free, so should we or should
we not exercise that freedom of
thought, without fear, without
restraint, and think freely before we ...
nice the story with the solution of it
