We live in a civilization in which so many things we use magically appear, and we just need money to get them. The facts of our existence are not tangible. Like outside, you see rocks and dirt. That's what the laws of the universe wants everything to be: dirt, containing random junk... the more random the better. It's hard to conceive how many lives had to build with their hands the stuff that magically appears, being a force against the randomness, extending the organization of our bodies to organizing the environment around us.
If the organization in our bodies falls back to randomness, we die. If the order we create falls back into randomness, people die or live very poorly. Covid is part of the counterattack of the universe in an attempt to destroy our organization, returning things to being rocks. Without the life it destroys, there is no Covid. It is a response to us. It isn't alive. It's simply a randomizer.
It's the perfect response. It not only convinces our bodies to destroy themselves but randomizes the supply chains we need to live. The organization of our institutions... Covid is doing a pretty good job destroying that. The diseases that were trying to randomize us and were flagging are now raging, because we are busy fighting Covid. And if we escape Covid, there are people with guns ready to randomize us.
Sometimes, when the environment around us is crumbling, it's hard to see the big picture of how life exists, how life requires organization of our environment on a large scale. We see our local agendas. But the universe-wide agenda is to make us all into dirt. Fight for life.
