The Fork in the Road

The authorities are saying now that there is a likelihood that Covid 19 escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China. Apparently the lab in question was involved in creating viruses in animals as part of a global plan known as ‘Gain-of-function’ research:-

“The rationale for this type of research is that by isolating these new viruses, researchers will be able to identify the specific changes in the genome that are responsible for the new characteristics. This knowledge could make it possible for scientists to better predict the arrival of new pandemics. It could help scientists develop vaccines and treatments adapted to new infectious agents.

Apparently the lab in Wuhan involved in this research had poor security measures and was involved in risky research on bats.

Like many people I bought the WHO line in 2020 that Covid is a zoonotic disease that crossed from animals to humans via a wet market in Wuhan. It’s now been revealed that this line was pushed by the authorities because Trump and the conspiracy theorists were aligned with the lab escape idea.

That fantasy was exploded by the meticulous reporting of the veteran science writer Nicholas Wade in an article published in May in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists. Wade’s persuasive case that the novel coronavirus escaped containment at the Wuhan Institute of Virology — which was conducting research on altering viruses so they would more easily jump from animals to humans — has reopened a debate we should have been having all along. Biden’s order is a consequence.” https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2021-06-04/if-covid-did-escape-from-a-wuhan-lab-brace-yourself

Well – WTF!

This morning I had a fleeting vision just before I woke up. I saw the whole Covid lab escape v natural virus as a kind of holographic projection that has been beamed onto our minds – a kind of filmic, illusory thought form.

The zoonotic disease theory appealed to me because it reinforces my personal belief that we are impacting too much on nature and are cutting down too many trees. With habitat destruction people are more likely to encounter wild animals. Zoonotic diseases like HIV can cross over to humans. Seeing Covid as yet another zoonotic disease fits with into the framework of ideas.

Last year when conspiracy theories about Covid were peaking I read they were becoming so popular because people seek patterns to explain events. Conspiracy theories are big on patterns – x happened because of v – w – z…

Now I realise my mind has been seeking similar ‘rational’ explanations:-

On waking
I find myself
exposed
in fabrications
I clung to
as explanations
of events

When I saw the lab escape v zoonotic disease debate as a holograph this morning I had a momentary impression of seeing through it. Beyond it was a clear expanse – the higher state of mind reached sometimes in meditation. The peace and clarity that comes during bursts of creativity, gardening, being in nature and listening to beautiful music are also ways in which this higher state can be reached.

It seems to me that the wisest course of action I can take is to cultivate this state. Nothing in the construct I’ve taken to a solid, immutable reality is as it seems. It’s all open to interpretation.

  1. Corporate bodies lie… Governments lie … banks lie .. religious leaders lie … The sun above is our only truth ..and the universe is here to stay … but we the human race continue to commit suicide by slowly killing mother nature, the lifeblood of planet earth …. greed is not a life giving seed … greed only makes the downtrodden bleed, and left continually queuing up for a feed … greed does not listen to compassionate or humanitarian pleas …
    my dreams are being strangled by mysterious chemicals and noxious weeds … and mercury fills the seas… and you know what really “bugs” me … the actual 1% of people who run/own this stupid world … KNOW.. THEY KNOW… !!

      1. Sadly, that may turn out to be the case. Another idea that occurred to me is that pointing the finger at China will bolster the growing anti China sentiment and prime peoPlle for war. The warmongers dream!

    1. Yes, that does seem to be the case. You express it very well. For me the only way to keep going without giving in to despair is to meditate and do things that make me feel good in my own little world.

  2. I think we tend to get caught up in the why, which leads to blame, conspiracy, fears running irrational…it all pulls us away from unity and realizing that we are, in essence, all in this together. I like your way of moving into that place of peace and clarity.

    1. Yes, the implications of all ths blaming China are terrifying. I wrote the post because the vision I had was so clear. I’m glad you understand what I’m talking about. Thank you for being present with what I wrote.

    1. Yes, I agree. We will never really know the truth. I have read the info on pandemics happening every 100 years or so. What gets me about the stories we are being told about this one is how they highlight the hypocrisies and agendas of those in power.

  3. I’m astonished. I’m online most of my days, browsing things that interest me, catching this and that, and until you told me here had not heard of this news anywhere else. 😮 I’ll read both articles that you link to. Somebody got richer by how the news was first presented… This world is absolutely untrustworthy and dodgy, nobody knows anything and spins it how they see it fit. It has always been this way, but now it’s becoming clear to everybody. Ugly times. All well to you.
