Humans have been around for about 250k years and civilization for about 6k years. Not really but that long on an evolutionary scale. But this experiment proves that we have not evolved much either. We're still simple creatures, easily programmable on a mass scale. What this experiment should have also observed was amygdala size of the pre shower monkeys vs the final ones.
