First thing I’ll say about Coronavirus to those that have it is welcome to the land of a coma victim. Doctors talk of brain defects resulting from the virus like loss of taste and smell which are typical defects of coma. And solitude through social distancing, coma victims choose isolation.
We needed a human reboot because of global warming. Coronavirus has provided that and proven that we can reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Like the Spanish Flu early in the 20th century Coronavirus has taken many lives but it has also proven we can change. Maybe we’ll choose to focus on life itself and take steps to save the planet.
Solitude has changed us, perhaps we will develop a new way of life through social distancing. The virus is also crippling financial markets, we might need to look past money. Perhaps we will realise we don’t need money, a human invention for exchange. We do need to share but who owns? Coronavirus is made worse because today we are global. Let’s stop the transmission by social distancing and keep in touch using social media.
Evolution occurs when we are forced to change, the virus is changing us. There are reports of people being able to see the Himalayas again in India because of the decrease in pollution. Perhaps we needed Coronavirus.
The below from a now deleted post…
We’ve had several viruses; SARS, Ebola, Influenza, Polio, The Spanish Flu, now Covid-19. The next virus dubbed virus X might be more contagious with death the most likely outcome. But beyond nature we are extinguishing ourselves through global warming. The weather has become extreme, so many hurricanes, hot spells, rain, a sign of things to come.
With many deaths, lost jobs and financial problems resulting from the virus, Covid-19 presents more evidence that we need new systems for society. Perhaps something like the Venus Project without money. A non financial civilization where humans share their resources and skills not for profit. Venus Project
If implemented the Venus Project would offer meaning beyond individual wealth. Most of us try to help others, let’s do so with purpose, collectively. My only problem with the Venue Project is too much certainty, scientific, doubt it is the human condition. Sure we can be certain about facts, but we also live in opinion when considering the unknown. The projects ideals are great, we could live like that in the modern world with AI, but the Venue Project makes judgements about existence. It takes the human out of being one, I would worry about becoming a robot without fascination.
We have become money, it drives us at every turn, even morality is governed by it. I think the concept of money was required to build our civilization but perhaps now we can move past self interest. Evolve into a new system beyond preconceptions of the industrial age, it is after all the information age.

Coronavirus vaccines use RNA, CRISPR uses RNA to change DNA. Several international doctors wonder if the vaccines RNA can change DNA, there is much talk about it online. The vaccines genetically modify people to fight Covid.
