Start with a cage containing five monkeys. Inside the cage, hang a

monkeys will try to prevent it. Now, put away the cold water.

To his surprise and horror, all of the other monkeys attack him.
After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the
stairs, he will be assaulted.
Next, remove another of the original five monkeys and replace it with a
new one. The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked.
The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment with enthusiasm!
Likewise, replace a third original monkey with a new one, then a fourth,
and then the fifth. Every time the newest monkey takes to the stairs, he is

permitted to climb the stairs, or why they are participating in the beating
of the newest monkey.
After replacing all the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys
have ever been sprayed with cold water.
Nevertheless, no monkey ever again approaches the stairs to try for the
Why not?
