No one dares to try!The Kellogg experiment, nine-month-old babies grew up with chimps and had distorted personalities
Science is the pearl of modern human beings, because science has the role of casting clouds to see the sun, it extracts the cocoon of our daily life in various phenomena, to explore the principles, and then obtain knowledge to help the evolution of human beings.So science leads the development of modern human technology.But there are also many detours in the development of science, some of which even test human nature.Many of you have probably heard of the famous “21 grams of soul”, which has actually been done by someone, a surgeon, who tries to verify the weight of a soul by weighing it and so on.So he persuaded half a dozen or so family members of the dying to weigh their souls in the hope of finding out how much they weighed. Some of the patients died without being weighed in detail, making the experiment extremely inaccurate. Then the doctor said 21 grams of soul based on the fact that one or two of them lost about 20 grams of weight.In fact, the air in the lungs and the loss of body fluids will affect the body weight of people who are dying. His weighing results can only show the changes in body weight before and after death, but can not explain what changes are caused. If the body is dried and then weighed, it can even weigh dozens of jin lighter (mummy).This kind of physical torture of human beings, especially the dying and the dead, is not allowed, so no one has done this kind of experiment, and because the experiment is not rigorous, there is no point in doing it.In modern times, there are double torments to human spirit and body.Kellogg LABS is one of the most famous, scientifically respectable, but highly inhuman experiments.Thanks to the development of evolutionary theories in the 19th and early 20th centuries, it was already known that humans and chimpanzees were related.But there are those who question the effect of upbringing on biological evolution, on the evolution of intelligence, and so on, and here comes Kellogg’s experiment.In the 1930 s, an American named Winthrop, Kellogg’s comparative psychologist on chimpanzees have an interest, he thinks that human language and behavior are acquired, and less influenced by genetic, so he do a contrast experiment, the setting sun is the chimpanzee and human children live together.He wondered if, in a few years, chimpanzees would make a breakthrough in things like language if they lived and ate with human children.The problem was finding a family willing to let their children live and eat with a chimpanzee.After a long search, he found that his son, Winthrop Kellogg’s baby was 10 months old at the time, so after some difficult negotiations with his wife luella, she finally agreed to the experiment.So Winthrop Kellogg took home a female chimp named Gua, who was only 7 months old at the time.According to the plan begun by Winthrop Kellogg, the experiment would last for five years.But the experiment ended up being aborted after about nine months, and no one has dared to do it again.At first, when both are very young, their mobility is still very affected, and they also have a strong ability to imitate, which is influenced by the experimenter (not the experimenter), so the effect of living and eating together is not very big for the child and the orangutan, after all, they are lack of mobility at this time.As the experiment progressed, Kellogg found that the orangutans learned some human toddler skills, such as eating with a spoon, but his sons showed signs of delayed language development and aggressive behavior.Presumably the two are interacting because they’re being interfered with by each other.The young chimps themselves are raised and educated by the female chimpanzees, and now completely live in the human environment and are affected by human behavior. Their excellent exemplary ability enables them to master certain life skills, but due to genetic and other aspects of the defect, they can not learn human language.And chimpanzees have a lot of genetic conservative skills, human children and chimpanzees living together for a long time, also because of the ability to imitate, and some violent tendencies, such as biting, language development is also affected.The experiment was stopped after about nine months. Kellogg wanted to continue the study, but he was afraid his children would be affected.In this case, what the Kelloggs actually did was raise their children with a chimpanzee without much other intervention, but the interaction was significant.It proves that the behavior of different organisms in the same environment influences each other, but what it does not prove is the interaction of genetic and acquired biological behavior.That’s an experiment no one dares to do anymore.Before the Kellogg experiment, no one was willing to let their children participate in such an experiment. On the other hand, the development of human ethics, which is very inhumane, not to mention against the will of animals, even human rights, which we value most, were destroyed in this experiment.Even though the Kelloggs used their own children, it was still considered inhumane.
