How The 100th Monkey Can Change The World.

How do influencers become influencers?

How do new trends suddenly take off?

How can we change the world?

As a force for good.

Is the 100th Monkey Theory the answer?

They say it was a hoax.

Not so, if we take Group Souls into account

Which is not scientifically proven..

Let me tell you the facts as they are known.

Seventy years ago, on the Japanese island of Kojima, a group of researchers noticed that the social behaviour of a troup of 100 Macaca monkeys changed after one of them found a new way to wash and eat potatoes.

The others followed.

All 100 of them.

Which is not normal for monkeys.

Or humans.

Here’s the story.

And that proposes an interesting question.

Might 100 people change their behaviour for good if just one did?


All in different locations.

The behaviour change seems to have jumped natural barriers and to have appeared spontaneously in colonies on other islands and on the mainland in a troop at Takasakiyama.

Then there is wheat, which the monkeys enjoy but find difficult to deal with once it has blown out of containers onto the sand. The breakaway monkey was only three when she solved this dilemma by picking up mixed handfuls of sand and wheat and winnowing the grain by casting both into the sea.

The sand sank, leaving the wheat floating free on the surface where it could easily be scooped up and eaten.

Are there unknown laws in evolution other than those governed by ordinary natural selection.

Is there a second evolution where everything is returning to the Source?

Its perfect archetype?

Read about my theory of a second evolution in my new book ‘Romancing Your Life & Changng The World’.

Is there such a thing as the 100th Monkey Phenomenon and that it might account for the way in which many memes, ideas and fashions spread through our culture.

It may be that when enough of us hold something to be true, it becomes true for everyone.

When a myth is shared by large numbers of people, it becomes a reality.’ (Lawrence Blair).

So how did the first monkey communicate her new habit with the others?

It was hardly through chatting.

Maybe chatter.

Not words.

Maybe signs.

I think through group knowing.

A group phenomenon.

That members of a group just know.

Like a flock of birds all changing direction in the same moment.

A knowing.

Group Soul.

Or Thought Form.

Same with changing the world.

What if?

Love and Peace.

What Is a Soul Mate?

Everyone today seems to be searching for their soul mate.
Or do they mean twin soul?
Or twin flame?
What is the difference, if there is one, between a twin soul and a soul mate?
Have you ever thought about it?
Whenever someone talks to me about searching for their soul mate I ask them,
“Or do you mean twin soul?”
And most of the time I get a blank look as if to say,
“I never thought of that.”
So what is the difference between a soul mate and a twin soul? If there is one.
Twin souls are, well, like twins.
They come from the same soul, or womb, and are here to achieve a common or similar goal,either together or independently.
Both Darwin and Wallace arrived at much the same theory of evolution at the same time, so they were twin souls who, rather than working in collaboration, developed the same theories, concurrently but independently.
Like insurance, if one didn’t get it the other one probably would.
Logarithms, you’ll be interested to know, were discovered by both John Napier of Scotland and Joost Burgi of Switzerland around the same time.
The microchip was invented twice within half a year of each other, first by Jack Kilby (1958) and then Robert Noyce (1959).
So what are soul mates and how are they different from a twin soul?
Soul mates are different souls, mates, who may have known each other in past lives, who feel a strong bond with each other or who have agreed to meet up to help each other or to learn from each other, often as a teacher for the other.
“You complete me” are the words of a soul mate.
“I am complete” are the words of a twin soul.
They can be your closest friend or someone who irritates you no end, depending on what their purpose is in being mates and what you need to teach/learn.
I’ve been told that I see my greatest faults in my partner.
Soul mate.
I’d like to think that the subjects of some of the greatest love stories in history might have agreed to meet again as soul mates to live out uncompleted lives.
To complete each other.
Love at first sight.
Did Lancelot and Guinevere and other tragic love stories return as soul mates?
What if you were one of them.
There are many theories on the question of what is a soul?
Mine is that the essence of our soul or higher self is what animates our physical body.
Not our soul but its essence.
Imagine that your soul is like a vast ocean which began as a clear ocean of water aeons ago.
With each lifetime a bucketful of the water from the clear ocean is drawn as the essence of a single lifetime.
That is not your soul but the essence of your soul.
The experiences of each lifetime you’ve ever lived accumulate in that ocean and therefore in that bucket of water, let’s say as colours, a different colour for each experience which are returned to the ocean when we die.
Suppose this happens over and over with each lifetime and the once clear water of the ocean becomes coloured with the experiences of every lifetime.
Each life adds more colours (experiences) to your ocean and each new life’s individual essence contains the colours (experiences) of that life to add to the ocean of coloured water.
I’d prefer to call it essence not soul.
Atman which is Brahman.
Essence which is soul.
So twin souls would be two bucketfuls draw from the same ocean.
Soul mates, on the other hand, are bucketfuls of coloured water drawn from different oceans.
Then there are group souls.
Group souls need to socialise.
Have you ever wondered why a flock of birds in flight all change direction at precisely the same moment?
It’s because most birds and animals are members of a group soul.
So were we, I believe, in ages past.
Then we, at some point, break away and individuate.
Then we are complete.

Love and Peace,
