I don’t know if you’re familiar with the Brass Monkey or the Asian take, The 3 Wise Monkey. I am also not sure of what will be the correct meaning of it in Western culture but it’s kind of a golden rule in Asia.
The 3 Wise Monkeys embody the principle “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil”. Sometimes there is a fourth monkey depicted with the three others; the last one symbolizes the principle of “do no evil”. He may be shown crossing his arms.
Don’t you think it’s a wee bit weird that Katniss Everdeen was once deaf in one ear, then swell up on one eye, was not able to speak as an after effect of a strangulation and finally was almost burn to death? All pointing to the mystic apes.
I do remember she lost her spleen too but it’s as if Ms. Collins did that on purpose or was it just a coincidence, we will never know. I am no philosopher but I am curious.
P.S: Don’t get me started with Peeta’s resurrections. He literally died 3 times in the books.
