HYPNOSIS BY CORONA

What is unfolding out there in the world reminds me of the story "The Emperor's New Clothes". Am I the only one having this experience? I’m not sure what others are thinking because after the first couple of days of talk radio I couldn’t take it anymore: the all encompassing mass hysteria focusing on the miniscule fraction of the population that has died or is still going to die. Is it possible that many of those that have died or will die were going to die this year anyway?  It is certainly ironic that the death rate from all the everyday things like booze related car accidents and crime related violence have plummeted. So if this is all about saving lives I think we have already passed with flying colours.

What really concerns me though is best described by the terms hypnotic blindness or negative hallucination.  Defined as “a false perceptual experience characterized by failure to see something while looking directly at it, as in failing to perceive a certain person in a group in response to hypnotic suggestion.”  It seems to me that people have been hypnotised into believing that we are all going to die, that all old people and all diabetics are going to die. This is absolutely not true. Most of us i.e. 95-99 percent of people that actually catch the virus will be absolutely fine! And the reality is that more than half of us that are exposed will not get sick at all. Why doesn't the media focus on those facts? 

Yes, what is going on out there is absolutely terrifying but it has almost nothing to do with the actual virus but everything to do with the fear of the virus. This fear is irrational, contagious and deadly.

South Africans wake up to what is really killing our people, our economy and our country. The fall out of lockdown is destroying lives and livelihoods at a rate faster than any virus could ever dream of. Two week lockdown was justifiable to get the message across to the masses and allow the healthcare system to prepare in whatever way they could. But now it is time for real life to carry on, go back to work, go back to school. Yes, of course if you are elderly, or are at high risk then take extra precautions and if you are not well, have a fever or any respiratory symptoms then obviously stay at home and self quarantine.

Please sign this petition to end lockdown with it’s random rules. Question and think before you surrender your freedom. While it is still sunny and warm let's get out there and build our immunity and our community. Have faith in millions of years of evolution or whatever works for you and carry on living your lives to the best of your ability. Hopefully with more compassion, courage and a new appreciation of nature and everyday stuff.
