One may get surprised by the fact that the wild turkeys do have the ability to fly but their domestic counterpart, i.e. the ‘domestic turkeys’ cannot fly, purely because they weigh 2-3 times heavier than the wild ones. 


Indeed the domestic turkeys are farmed only for the purpose of ‘eggs’ and ‘meat’ and hence are fed well.  Because of the abundant food availability, the turkeys eat a lot and become fat.  They become ‘too fat’ to fly. 


It is not, that the domestic turkeys cannot fly but their heavier body weight only preventing them from flying.  The care and abundant food intake only made them to be ‘too heavy’.  Even the basic instinct of a bird, the ability to fly in the sky is getting lost due to the luxury of food and conditioning. 


The domestic turkeys symbolically represent the ‘plight’ of many employees in the corporate world.  Ability to fly is the instinct of all flying birds on earth.  Similarly, the ability of people to be very creative and innovative is also an instinct. 


The corporate conditioning, the fat salary, the luxury and comfort make them lazy, least innovative and creative.  Progressively they loose their instinct.   Instead of being ‘instinctively innovative or intelligent’ they engineer innovative ways and means to play many tricks and politics just to safeguard their vested interest and to remain continuously ‘fat and fit’ in the same corporate.


When they become ‘too fat’ to fly, naturally they will have to roost in the same ecosystem.  As long as they reside and roost in the same ecosystem they become fat continuously and may be ‘fit’ as well.  The situation becomes as tricky as ‘eggs give birth to chicks and chicks give birth to egg’ and the story continues.   


Metaphorically, most corporate are like ‘turkey farms’ and it rears turkeys only for its commercial need.  So they feed the turkeys well and never bother whether the turkeys loose its ability to fly or it become too fat.  Corporate is in fact right in its approach. 


The subject is more relevant for the corporate employees to ponder and see whether they become like ‘domestic turkeys, ‘too fat’ to fly due to all corporate fallacies and conditioning.   


Loosing ones instinctive ingenuity will naturally opens up the door for fear and lack of self belief to enter.  This is the reason why, the most corporate employees makes many miserable attempts to hangs onto their job instead of believing and experimenting with their natural talent.  Become a slave first, and fight to be a slave forever approach is what seen with most corporate employees these days.


A gentle visit to a turkey farm and seeing and learning from nature would help one to see what is to be seen instead of seeing what one want to see.  This is what the fat and flightless domestic turkeys in the farm convey to the corporate employees across the world.
