[Ok, let me give my best shot at this, this is all personal experience and basic understanding, so bear with me, this might be rough
Well, that of course does not count towards all drugs and narcotics, I mean no use in using Crystal meth
. But lets take the results from the monkeys on drugs tests 'theoretically... or hypothetically' really makes no difference. Monkeys are animals... of course
... You can compare them to children with ADD/ ADHD (there is a distinct difference, I do not know what it is, therefore I list both just as example, if anyone knows, please let me know I'd love to know what the diff is.
) or even on a sugar rush, now you can't tell them to sit still, keep quiet and focus on the test at hand and
tell them that if they get an answer right they'll get a toy, sweetie, food etc
. So what will you have to do?? Calm them down at the root... i.e the brain, SO you give them enough dosage to calm them down enough to take the test. After that they return to their super hyper self OR they become addicts (I'm just throwing that in there as a joke, I know reading these long winded messages can become quite the pain without some sort of humour within
Now results, does that prove without a shadow of a doubt (let's assume this test was carried out over hundreds of monkeys with the exact same results... making your theory 'perfect' in a sense) something my uncle said once that is SO true in marketing and science... it only needs to be proven in a lab to be classified as 'proof' so if you were to say that (example) marijuana actually makes a monkey concentrate more on a topic than without, that dosage has been manufactured for that specific monkey and his system, not to create a high, but just to calm him down and focus ~(something we take for granted, but I had many times where I just can't seem to read the question in an exam... reading the line over and over, getting to the 3rd word and forgetting about the 1st
)~ on the test at hand, of course, even the slightest bit of focus you can have onto one thing the better you will do in it, so hundred monkeys, hundred dosages of hash and hundred confirmations that a certain dosage of marijuana can increase concentration in monkeys... general public throws it open and finally it becomes 'marijuana makes you focus' (not saying it is what happened and not blowing your theory down at all axe, as I said, bear with me) people use their own dosages, of course making them high and now any delusion that they see is their 'focus'... yeah right.
Ok, great, now that I have somewhat covered the theory, here comes my idea:
As mentioned before mother nature is a very sensitive b****... the smallest fuckup and her PMS gos overtime and before you know it everything's dying, so... keeping that in mind let's go this way.
Remember that little runt of the litter?? You remember that wittle puppy that looks so cute?? huh?? awwwwww, with his bent tail and discoloured eyes and what not?? oh dear you just want to keep him oh so close to your heart and snuggle wuggle wif him oh so long...
yeah... don't do that... Mother nature likes to try to be perfect... (term natural selection ring a bell anyone?? not evolution.. well, not quite) in that term it states that the weakest of the group be killed, to prohibit that it's weak genes (Denim baby!
) get to go further than the tip of his disfunctional...tail, so in nature the runt of the litter will usually not get enough room to suckle on it's mothers tit (sorry, got a spellcheck at 'teet') and die of starvation... humans intervene and call this 'saving' God... if only they look at the bigger picture and not just their emotions... (-YA HEAR THAT YA HIPPIES!!! SCREW ALL OF YOU... into a wooden board... and set it alite...- -calm down M0, it's a theory, not an assault- -damn-)
That gazelle that was mauled down by the Leopards in Africa, that Deer that was suffocated by mountain lions, that poor whale taken down by Great Whit... OK WE GET IT!
sheesh... ok, well he was basically coming to the end of his life, not only being killed to spare the species of his genes but also to feed the stronger party at that time
(Wait... this is back into evolution M0... I don't get what this all has to do with monkeys taking drugs
= -BUT DON'T YOU SEE!?!?- -Calm down M0... Whoosaah, WHOOOSAAAH!
Now... Natural selection states that the strongest (natural) unit of a group move forward, the weakest (natural) member... does not (just a hint... look at government to see Natural selection IN ACTION!..... these are the characters that actually need to die
) so technically IF you were to prove that (example) marijuana were to make you more focused, and that you will accomplish tasks better... why even bother if there is already someone that can do it without the use of the drug?? (-i.e Natural selection in my eyes rules that out...- -and we don't want Mother nature pissin' blood and killin' us all now do we- -no sir we do not...-)
If you have thoughts let me know, please improve wherever possible, ask if clarification is needed and as always, enjoy the read
P.s. Thanks goes out to Caveman for his 'schizophrinic behaviour' I thoroughly enjoyed using that technique, but I won't make it a habit
