100th Monkey Paradigm Shift In Progress

The 100th Monkey Effect:
sufficient number of a group or species

through the air across natural barriers.
thing that has been holding up progress that we can see and know
is progress, is probably the delay while more and more people
get up to speed on the situation we are in. So for those of us
who went ahead and established a more comprehensive world view
some time ago, there seems to be a delay.
Things are beginning to change. Remember the 100th Monkey principle: when a certain number
of a population has learned something new, what has been learned
can jump across boundaries to the whole species.
now, new facts about the world which have been learned over the
past few years by 100s of millions of people, and the thinking
that goes along with those facts, are hammering away at the old
In science, when a change within a system gets to a certain

technique; (5) In 1958, when the number in the group of Monkeys
who knew the technique reached approx 100 individuals, an
amazing thing happened; (6) Colonies of Monkeys on other Islands
started using the food-washing technique; (7) The information
had leapt physical boundaries.

not necessarily need to make the same mystical leap which these
monkeys made fifty years ago. Human beings have speech; rapid
intellect; and we have many types of global communication. New
ideas in the human world can spread like lightning.

Perhaps they are waiting for us to get up to speed.
