Kipling writes that “they would all rush together in mobs and shout: “There is no one in the jungle so wise and clever and strong and gentle as the Bandar-log (42).” ” The Bandar-log monkeys are the complete opposite of their descriptions of themselves, and the monkeys also brag about the tasks that they do not accomplish. Baloo says that “they boast and chatter and pretend that they are a great people about to do great affairs in the jungle (Kipling, 31).” Today’s bullies and the Bandar-log monkeys believe that they are better than everyone else, and they both think that the things they do are something to be proud

In the book, Journey to the West, the character Monkey interacts with many other types of beings including humans, animals, and supernatural beings. Monkey himself is an animal, but he does gain things that celestials may commonly have like enlightenment, immortality, and holy weapons. These things along with his persuasiveness and boldness do make him seem superior to animals and humans, but he is still, at most, an equal to some celestials. He has proven his superiority over humans and animals and he acts if they are below him. Meanwhile, he has no proof of being superior to the celestials.
The purpose of Harlow’s study was to analyze the theory of attachment; the test examines the reasons on babies’ attachment to someone. The purpose of Harlow’s Monkey experiment was also to test the theory of attachment created by Dollar and Miller. Experiencing with monkeys, Harlow proves how the theory was wrong. The test consisted of a series of tests that were supposed to demonstrate if the attachment were a result of the bond, or more simply, as the provision of food.

When he came to his true self he saw the value he has and how when he’s himself than he will find peace and meaning to life. Not to mention when he wasn 't himself he ended up trapped under a pile of rocks not being able to do anything and that 's what happens when someone 's not themselves, they’re stuck and a bunch of lies, he 's been covered in lies and hiding who he really is under a bunch of social things that sooner or later won 't have meaning because he’ll just be stuck under the pile of rocks.

The origins of the word "monkey" are unclear. It could come from Moneke, the name of the son of Martin the Ape in a medieval animal story. It appears also to be related to manikin, from the Dutch manneken ("little man"). A monkey is any primate that is not a human, prosimian, or ape. Most monkeys eat animals and plants, and some also eat dirt.
The neurons in the monkeys ' F5 section would fire when the monkey made an action like grabbing for a banana. Then Rizzolatti found that when a collegue was grabbing a banana, in some monkeys, their motor neurons will fire. The amazing things was that the motor neurons that fired the second time were the neurons that fired in the first experiment. This was the first significant breakthrough for mirror neurons. After this discovery, the scientists wanted to see these neurons in humans.
