…watch your back
In a world of distractions, it seems almost everyone needs a little help winding down at the end of the day.
Lucky for us, the sound machine is there to help us nod off. But what sounds do most of us prefer?
Chirping crickets, rolling waves, and gentle breezes all sound lovely and serene, but according to a recent study, one in five adults found the sound of monkeys (and other jungle creatures) the most helpful when drifting off to sleep.
…and that’s just how they want it.
Sure, it’ll start out innocently enough, listening to the sounds of cute little monkey’s to help you catch some Zzz’s.
It is admittedly more exciting than counting sheep.
Next thing you know you’re drifting off at the ape house…understandable.
Then one day you wake up from your peaceful slumber to find yourself living in a world where apes and primates rule over the whole of humanity…then what?!?!?
Thank goodness we don’t find zombies soothing.
Don’t think these apes act alone.
Those sleep machines didn’t program themselves…or did they?
A robot recently unveiled in Japan can learn from past experiences.
It uses memory from previous tasks to learn for itself how to complete new ones.
With the help of the monkeys who knows what kind of world they could create?
It’s horrible to even imagine.
So tonight as you set your sleep aid device, take a moment and consider your options and ask yourself, “A world ruled by monkey’s or crickets…which future do I want?”
