Humans Are Monkeys

There are billions of galaxies in the observable universe. And each of them contains hundreds of billions of stars. In one of the galaxies, orbiting one of these stars. Lies a little blue planet. And this planet is run by a bunch of monkeys… ~”Dance, Monkeys, Dance” Written & Performed by Ernest Cline

  1. If only we could keep a beginner’s mind, we might be able to get rid of the monkey mind. haha. Love this, Niko. We get grossed out when monkeys sling poop at each other in the zoo, yet we don’t bat an eye when we sling arrows at each other. Oh, and we also put monkeys in a zoo. {{{hugs}}} Kozo

    • Yes, the beginner’s mind which allows us to perceive with new eyes each moment, and brings with it the faculties of compassion, empathy, and sympathy. Yes, that we fail to see the hypocrisy in being grossed out by monkeys slinging poop, but not at all effected by the arrows we humans often sling at one another without question and with such a vehemence is frightening. But, humans, like the monkeys, can sometimes put ourselves in zoos and forget that we are human and to be human with one another. Like the beginner’s (or the childlike) mind, we must remember to remember our humanity and those faculties and responsibilities inherenet therein. 🙂

      Always enjoy your comments, Kozo. 🙂
