The Hundredth Monkey Effect.
The conscious aspect of the mind involving our awareness of the world and self in relation to it is conscious awareness.
ॐ 唵

hundredth monkey phenomenon " I live and work alone and travel light, relying largely on my memory and making a point of letting intuition guide my way. --Lyall Watson*

(In the 1960's by several Japanese primatologists of Japanese macaques or Snow monkeys).

Watson alleged that the scientists were "reluctant to publish [the whole story] for fear of ridicule." He wrote that he had "to gather the rest of the story from personal anecdotes among primate researchers, because most of them are still not quite sure what happened."

So, wrote Watson:
I am forced to improvise the details, but as near as I can tell, this is what seems to have happened. In the autumn of that year an unspecified number of monkeys on Koshima were washing sweet potatoes in the sea. . . .

Let us say, for argument's sake, that the number was ninety-nine and that at eleven o'clock on a Tuesday morning, one further convert was added to the fold in the usual way. But the addition of the hundredth monkey apparently carried the number across some sort of threshold, pushing it through a kind of critical mass, because by that evening almost everyone was doing it.

Not only that, but the habit seems to have jumped natural barriers and to have appeared spontaneously, like glycerine crystals in sealed laboratory jars, in colonies on other islands and on the mainland in a troop at Takasakiyama.
