The Omicron Epoch

 202It looks like the coronavirus epidemic got completely out of our control thanks to the new strain omicron. The virus walks around the world without any boundaries. The number of infected people is growing exponentially day to day and as a result the testing system is collapsing. This means that now it is even impossible to know how many people are sick.

The virus is spreading like wildfire. It is believed that omicron will end the coronavirus epidemic since everyone will get sick with it.

On the other hand, there is a danger that it will finally undermine the health care system, which because of the excessive workload, will not be able to take care of any patient of any kind.

So, what will the omicron do to us ultimately? I think this calamity came to calm us down, to stop us from being occupied with useless work in which there are no necessities, to get us thinking about how to make our lives more modest, but also more reliable.

It turns out that the pandemic is not a blow, but a cure. It forces us to think about what we live for and how to come to a more peaceful life, how to make a person more balanced, closer to normal life, and down to earth instead of rushing around the world and spending so much time on airplanes. Let’s get some rest.

I think that the coronavirus has taught us such useful lessons that have never been seen before in the entire history of mankind. It can be seen from the news that people are concerned about a serious problem instead of talking about nonsense. People are no longer eager to travel from country to country because they don’t know what to do with themselves.

So far, we still lack the wisdom to properly organize our lives in this difficult time of the pandemic, but let us hope that in the end it will straighten us up and make us realize what we live for, how is it worth living, and for what. We will make a lot of clarifications thanks to this virus.

These will be personal clarifications for everyone and at the level of the family, city, country, between countries, and all over the world. They should concern our relationship to inanimate, vegetative, and animate nature, and, most importantly, the relationships between us, people. Such viruses, which will come again and again, will do their job and lead us to the truth.

The human organism is full of viruses. I hope that due to all these virus attacks, we will get smarter, grow up, and will be able to organize ourselves properly. The virus will force us to do this.
