The story of the 100th Monkey is about group consciousness. Once a certain number of a species develop a common understanding, this conscious becomes a part of the entire collective. This monkey is named Juan. Unlike the first monkey, Imo (content below) Juaun O Wan is the 101st - the one who tips the scale. 


From Wikipedia:

The 'hundredth monkey' effect was popularized in the mid-to-late 1970s by Lyall Watson, who documented the findings of several Japanese primatologists from the 1950s.[1]

Between 1952 and 1953,[i] primatologists conducted a behavioral study of a troop of Macaca fuscata (Japanese monkeys) on the island of Kōjima. The researchers would supply these troops with such foods as sweet potatoes and wheat in open areas, often on beaches.[1] An unanticipated byproduct of the study was that the scientists witnessed several innovative evolutionary behavioral changes by the troop, two of which were orchestrated by one young female, and the others by her sibling or contemporaries. The account of only one of these behavioral changes spread into a phenomenon (i.e., the 'hundredth monkey effect'), which Watson would then loosely publish as a story.[1]

According to Watson, the scientists observed that some of the monkeys learned to wash sweet potatoes, initially through an 18-month-old female member (named "Imo" by the researchers) of the troop in 1953. Imo discovered that sand and grit could be removed from the potatoes by washing them in a stream or in the ocean. Gradually, this new potato-washing habit spread through the troop—in the usual fashion, through observation and repetition. (Unlike most food customs, this behavior was learned by the older generation of monkeys from younger ones.)
