Did We Evolved To Be Made Monkeys Out Of?

Our monkey minds cannot keep still.
Why is this?
It is because our lives have speeded up.

Monkey minds do monkey tricks
to make money for monkey business.
The problem is that the monkey makers
have become powerful gorillas.
Even though we may see them, we don’t realise their influence.

Illusions work by confusing and misdirecting our attention.

Edward Bernays was a pioneer in the field of public relations and propaganda; he was named one of the 100 most influential Americans of the 20th century. Have you heard of him?

The gorilla business creates illusions and deceptions by taking advantage of the way in which we perceive stimuli and process information. Illusions separate perception from reality by misdirection. We may have seen the gorilla, but that doesn’t mean we see everything – our attention has already been compromised by being misdirected!

We are here to realise – and not ignore – that we are homo sapiens; we are wise beings rather than clever monkeys.

    I recommend watching Adam Curtis’ “Century Of The Self”. He covers (among other things) the tactics and influence of Bernays.
