Are you familiar with the term “collective consciousness?”
There is a collective field of thought/belief that dictates, to some degree, what is possible.
For example, people thought it was impossible for a runner to break the four-minute mile. As soon as Roger Bannister did it in 1954, other athletes did the same thing within the same year.
In the 1950s, scientists conducted research on a group of monkeys in Japan. They dropped sweet potatoes on the ground for the monkeys to eat. After awhile, one monkey took the sand covered sweet potato and rinsed it at a nearby lake, discovering that the sweet potato tasted better washed.
Not long after, more monkeys started washing their sweet potatoes and, unexplainably, it moved elsewhere. And although these monkeys never came into contact with each other, the act of rinsing food before eating it entered their collective consciousness.
This strange event was coined the “100 Monkey Principle” which stated that once a critical number of people’s consciousness changed (in the case of the monkeys, that number was 100) a tipping point would occur which would lead to a change in group consciousness.
AND WHY DOES THIS MATTER?
We were all interconnected. If we could change our emotion of fear to love, we could change the world! 💥
