Now, turn off the cold water.
Now, remove one novice from the cage and replace it with a new one. The new novice sees the banana and wants to climb the stairs. To his horror, all of the other novices attack him. After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs, he will be assaulted. Next, remove another of the original five novices and replace it with a new one. The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment with enthusiasm. Again, replace a third original novice with a new one. The new one makes it to the stairs and is attacked as well.
Two of the four novices that beat him have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs, or why they are participating in the beating of the newest novice.After replacing the fourth and fifth original novices, all the novices which have been sprayed with cold water have been replaced. Nevertheless, no novice ever again approaches the stairs.
