Since the pandemic again shows us that whether we want it or not we are locked into a closed, fully integrated, interdependent system we can’t escape from by Nature’s evolution, hopefully we will adjust our thinking and lifestyle to adapt to such integral conditions where we all depend on each other and we are all … More How will coronavirus (Covid-19) change the way we live and think?
This is really the big question! Will we use our unique Human mind capable of critical self-assessment and this initiate necessary self-changes? Or we get scared, unite, work together – eventually – as an animalistic survival reflex, and then when the crisis is over we blindly return to the same life, same state we were … More Will humanity learn something from the Covid-19 outbreak? Will we as humans take this crisis as an opportunity to change or will everything be the same when this is over?
At this stage we don’t know. So far the numbers don’t support your claim, although there is no guarantee that with a mutation the virus doesn’t turn to be as deadly as the Spanish flue.

In this age, with all our technology, amassed knowledge we were all found with it pants down. There is absolutely no leadership, expertise, each government, leader acts accusing to their gut instincts. Even in Europe … More How far from collapse is society as we know it based on our reaction to COVID-19?
The weirdest thing is the total disconnection between people, countries, everybody trying to save themselves alone, it even at the expense of others. This is exactly the opposite of what we should be doing! I mean I understand the isolation precautions, but the total lack of mutual communication, mutual coordination at a time of a … More What are the weirdest things people are trying to do to prevent the coronavirus?
Well it seems the Chinese managed to contain the virus with reasonably short time although we still don’t know the natural course of the outbreak.
