I've always considered myself a very healthy person, who doesn't even get the flu, and I was just thinking these days, how effective it was to keep us isolated, protected from a virus. Even though I don't have children, I know that pediatricians recommend that mothers let their children have contact with some germs in order to "create antibodies". Our immune system is an army that must fight every day against disease and if it does not, like every army it can be defeated. I don't know if it happens to others, but with the coronavirus I feel like I'm fumbling around like I'm blind, there's no plan; like when I play detective because every day there are new clues and new investigations. Anyway, this week I dared to go out and buy groceries because they were needed and I felt that a part of me, being on the move and outdoors, was flourishing. Nice weekend, my friend! Greetings

Have you thought of a different expression when you think about our immune system?

How about to look at somewhat eccentric viruses and bacteria as runaways, who dare to push forward, which puts us and our bacterial & co roommates a little bit under stress. A cheeky virus that may test a new form of co-existence, perhaps even so that in many millions of years a completely new life form will emerge?

All these flu viruses, what are they actually up to? Wipe us out? Or are they testing whether they can still co-exist with us, sometimes at the limit, like an exuberant roommate? Which resistant and with them in an exciting balance of this co-creating way, and should they potentially do so in the distant future? Doesn't life always look for a way?

Maybe from now on I will celebrate every survived flu. But maybe not. It's good to get used to dangerous things, because, after all, we are not afraid of them any more.

Thanks for sharing @rok-sivante - I've shared this with my entire mailing list.

If people need to search for this online to research the veracity of its source, the names of these doctors are Dan Erikson and Artin Massihi [mentioned at the end of the video].

Thank you a lot for this video. I am at minute 48 right now and will add it to my list of other sensible sources who don't jump on the panic train. Worth to share it. So good to hear doctors in their positions as practitioners. It's what I am saying since years. Once you have academia juggling with numbers behind screens and desks and NOT coming into contact with real people, it leads to loss of reality. So GOOD to hear people being sane.

Thank you!


Our state just opened back up the ability for landscaping companies to do their thing I think, so I should be able to get outside more in the coming weeks and get some of my mulch spread. I think a lot of things could be open if we actually practiced social distancing, but many people don't understand that. The idea of personal space is foreign to so many people when there isn't a pandemic. I had to yell at a guy in the butcher shop who practically came over and stood on top of me.

Social distance is impossible to force. If you force people at every turn to observe their distance from each other, to constantly make sure that they don't step on each other's toes, you have a bunch of nervous, cautious, tense and deeply annoyed people who will sooner or later scream at each other.

Could it be that what you experienced, the man found an opportunity to show his frustration at the butcher's? We humans constantly show our frustration to each other when it gets too much for us. Who else should we show it to, if it is the public we inevitably have to go to in order to shop? How can you even be meant personally?

I happened to have ignored other peoples spaces. That just happens. But can you say that space ignoring is the rule and respecting it the exception? I would say we are usually all very well behaving without pandemic. Corresponding with the inherent cultural distances we learned.

No, especially where I live people are so self absorbed that they have no idea what is going on around them. If it is outside their personal sphere they are oblivious to it. If that means they walk over you to get where they are going so be it. I understand what you are saying, but I've lived in or near this town my whole life and it is just the way people are.

I too do understand what you mean. Just make , if it's important to you - mental numbers how often one bumps into you during daily normal life and how often that does not happen. When street life gets normal again.

I think, what you may refer to is that people tend to be thinking a lot, while moving through public. That makes them into creatures which carry their brain to the next destination, very self absorbed. Happened quite a lot to me, too :) Under normal circumstances it's not such a big deal. And when I am mentally stable and relaxed.

Have a good day:)

Somebody was telling me sometimes a go that the fear of the covid-19 after tested positive for it is even much more enough to kill the patient.

Many countries did not invest their fund in health sectors years back and this present covid-19 is seriously making them to suffer from it

Fear never does the immune system good.

The immune system is the key factor in determining how one responds to any virus.

Basic math.

“Investment in health sectors” is second to common sense.

If anything, this whole situation has just revealed how little of it actually goes into institutional decision-making and how broken our systems are. Further investment won’t fix something that’s fundamentally broken.

On point man
