Jottings: Coronavirus dialogs
I exhibit a consistent propensity to connect with, and study, whatever I fear. I noticed it first during the 9/11 attack in New York when almost immediately, I reached out for understanding Islam and developing friendship with Portland Muslim families. Coronavirus is different, of course, but my fear feels the same. I am learning to adjust from terror into peace with curiosity, openness, experience, acceptance. Here is the most recent process with coronavirus.
Dialog with Corona Virus
Talking heads say there's a virus killing us, hmm. It could be an asteroid, earthquake, hurricane, or a GU-43 BMO Air Blast Bomb. At least corona is organic with short strands of RNA, DNA in a protein shell. Right now, he or she needs a host cell, like ours, to grow in. Otherwise they'll just die away. I wonder if they make us sick and die, wishing they could shoot us like we shoot each other? I'll check in…
Hi Corona, how are you?
Why are you talking to me?
Because I want to know what you are.
Haven't you heard enough about me on social media?
Yes, I sure have, but it's all about how bad you are.
Right, what can I say?
Are you that bad?
I don't think so.
How bad are you?
I'm good at what I do and, according microphotos, I'm good-looking.
Oh? But you kill people, you know that, don't you?
Yes. That's not all I can do, but that's what I'm good at right now.
Why do you kill people?
Well, I didn't have anything else to do and some guy who loves you humans suggested this is a good time for you to find out you have no control over your life, your world or each other — and you certainly have no control over your death.
Why should we know that?
Because you have to grow up, get real; give up your materialism, your toys, your gross entertainment. Gather yourself unto yourself; wake yourself up to who you've been, who you are, where you are, what you have and if you are worthy of Life.
Do you have sense?
Ask your scientist, maybe she knows. Maybe that's all I have. Now get out of here or I might kill you.
