Human beings share a common trait with community centered animals like the dolphins, elephants, wolves, lions, monkeys and others. Many studies have shown how small numbers can influence large populations. Some question the Hundredth Monkey Effect, but other studies and simple observation show us the influence a small group can have on the whole of society. Many know this from the science of quantum entanglement or from original intuition. Many find it uncomfortable to accept that they indeed have an influence and thus a responsibility. It is much easier to blame someone or something else for the state of the planet and population. Trump or Hillary?
Dolphins are considered to be the longest living intelligent creatures on Earth, having reigned for approximately 35 million years before humans beings entered the scene. Many believe they are far more intelligent than humans, pointing to an extra portion of their brain that is enlarged. It seems from many studies that although each dolphin is very much an individual with it’s unique personality, they ultimately do not differentiate themselves from their group pod. This is how they are so easily rounded up into a cove and slaughtered. They can very easily jump over the barriers and escape death, but a dolphin understands well the power of “one for all and all for one.”
Some may say that this is weakness, which is why they are so easily killed. Surely humans are gods on earth who rule above and apart from all other creatures. Our strength comes from individual power, brute force, and our competitive nature. Anyone who doesn’t believe this will get plowed over by the reality of the world. This default perception of reality is part of an obsolete script that has a horrific track record. The majority of what we learn from our history class is the war, racism, and chaos of past times. We are taught that our laws, civilization, and money are our only saviors from our violent natural instincts. It’s a dog eat dog world.
This way of educating the future generation does not account for the thousand of years before we became sheep. How about the peoples of past who survived thousands of years without destroying each other or earth’s natural systems. Our darkest human atrocities took root with the introduction of what we call civilization. Where has this understanding led us? With the continuous and growing poisoning of the world and subjugation of humans, it seems like an overstanding is now needed instead of understanding.
To change our future we must take a wider angle and go beyond the layline to work from a place of complete intuitive comprehension of our relationship to each other. Overstanding means coming from a place that is above the ideologies most now consider to be the real world. This old understanding has all but made our planet a wasteland – physically and spiritually. We don’t suggest going back to grass huts and running around naked. But we have the technology and the ability to communicate and create like never before. Instead of allowing and accepting being enslaved and poisoned, we could collectively decide to form our own future. You just might be the hundredth monkey.
