It can't be called buying if it wasn't being sold.

Re: Yale researchers train monkeys to use money. Guess what they bought?
It's important to make a distinction though, humans and thinking animals are two very different things. When the article says that they may not be so different than humans it should say they also can think, they are thinking animals. There's too many thinking animals and too little human beings right now on Earth. Sex is not something you should pay for, it's a union...

Re: Yale researchers train monkeys to use money. Guess what they bought?
Because you all are socially engineered to think you are realized ideals from birth.

You all are not Human beings...you operate like Animals.

You all basically follow the same path that bacteria do.

The path of least resistence by default because that is the easiest path to follow.

The path of most resistance is the path Human beings follow.

You can strive to be a Human being...But you are not born as one.

Basically if you think you are a Human being...You are suffering from a delusion.

The path of least resistance or takeing more power than you give in order to sustain existence is what animals do.

They chop down trees faster than they regrow to survive.

It's the default or mindless path

Beavers never seem to be able to chop whole forrests down.

People can though given enough time.

But Human beings follow the path of most resistance.

They choose to chop down trees as fast as or slower than they regrow in order to sustain existence.

The knowledgeable path

The path of least resistance is finite and fragile.

The path of most resistance is infinite and indesturctible.

Of course as long as the trees don't run out.

Basically what you all call civilization is more of a domestication.

You were taught to think you are Human beings.

That is sustained by taking more than you give...or chopping down trees faster than they regrow...until the trees run out.

Then what is called civilization collapses.

An you all just say...Oh well...It's just Human nature.

But it's not Human nature at all.

After the dust settles...The top or owners of the enterprise employ the survivors to do it all over again.
 Quoting: Hypertiger

Stop with the mind games because you are only fooling yourself. DNA says we are human then we are human and if our brains are similar to ET brains then we have the same potentiality of those brains. Ironic of you to play God when you deny God's existence.

Sure, there are lots of problems with this planet. It's not sustainable as you mentioned and I am sure I could come up with a long list of other things if I took the time. However, humans are not like animals; they just want different things than you because they are spiritually different. We are not going to be stuck in a sad plight always trying to fight off death, believing that our success or failure is our evolutionary success or failure. Take the blinds off your eyes. What exists did not come from nothing. There is mountains of evidence of spiritual phenomena and very real effects of that phenomena being felt in our existence, two prominent ones being anger and greed.

If you have a valid argument, not one based on your favorite mind game then feel free to respond. This nonsense about us being animals is just to make you feel better about the future, not feeling demoralized about your actions. If we choose the value system and then use that value system to relieve our moral qualms then it is useless if the value system is wrong.

SEX!

Economic researchers at Yale managed to successfully train Capuchin monkeys to understand
and use currency.
The result? The monkeys used their newfound currency to buy sex:

Perhaps the most distinguishing characteristic of money, after all, is its fungibility,
the fact that it can be used to buy not just food but anything. During the chaos
in the monkey cage, Chen saw something out of the corner of his eye that he would later
try to play down but in his heart of hearts he knew to be true. What he witnessed
was probably the first observed exchange of money for sex in the history of monkeykind.
(Further proof that the monkeys truly understood money: the monkey who was paid for sex
immediately traded the token in for a grape.)

Re: Yale researchers train monkeys to use money. Guess what they bought?
We don't know if the monkey just liked his friend and gave a coin then had sex.

It's absurd to assume that they were engaging in trade.

An earlier poster said the monkey need not buy what he could get, anytime, for free. This is true. We need only witness the decline of the porn industry in the wake of free internet porn, or the 1960's problem in the pay-for-sex trade which continued through the 70's as young women freely engaged in sex. It wasn't until AIDs hit the newswires that this free period came to an abrupt halt in many circles, such as universities and the business environment.

This is anthopomorphism in a rather silly expression. That is, man has a tendency to assume human motivations when they see similar behaviors in other groups/species.
