Analyzing. Apes.


201805213594451718882987278_wm.jpg


It's a curious question right? We have known for ages that apes do experience human-like emotions. When I was invited by my brother to go and visite this new zoo in Holland this knowledge didn't stop me.
After some hours of walking around, I found myself looking at these clever beings.

Of course, I both felt sad they were sitting there day by day for our pleasures. Furthermore, I did definitely feel honored to be able to watch the group behavior of about 20ish of these apes. Obviously, I couldn't keep myself from taking a few shots while being a visitor of their fancy-fied cage.

If it's true that these beings experience approximately the same emotions humans do, then one agonizing truth emerges. Don't they know they are held in captivity? Realising this, I immediately felt sad for being there. Looking back at those pictures I keep wondering the same question. Who is observing who? Did they look at me while thinking:

"Dude, only today you are already the 144th person taking photographs of our desperate faith, dont you realize this?"

Again I aks myself. Who is observing and judging who?

''Emotions are there to be expressed, not to be suppressed and bottled up.''

like it, but what if you hate someone and you are very polite, so the savage part of you want to chop his head off and other is more rational and japanese?

Well, my advise would be the following:

try to ration with them, talking works best for a solution. Chopping heads of is only more fun in deadpool 2

I think so too. Gotta watch Deadpool 2 this week.

It is totally very curious to know what emotions these apes are experiencing. They see many people every day and I imagine that the amount of emotions they receive when they see so many people are many and different at every moment. By the way good photos.
