What is all the excitement about? People all over commemorating a vax jab with social media pictures of their vaccine card, stickers that happily state “I Got Vaccinated!!” and thumbs up congratulations all around as if the receivers just had an infant or won the lotto.
I’m surprised people aren’t offering cigars with “It’s a Covid Jab!” printed on the wrapping.
There hasn’t been this sort of event because World War II blood drives leading to the happy screen of a window plaque that read “I Did My Part for the War Effort!” Undoubtedly you did, my good friend, certainly you did! You did your part for the war effort!
What war? Oh right, the war against Covid-19, or more properly, the war versus Nature.
Mother Nature? How’s that? We’ve remained in a rather quiet war with that esteemed woman for rather some time. Just just recently it has become rather noisy, and now, with Covid-19, it has reached a deafening pitch. Why would that sort of war excite individuals? And what does getting the vaccine have anything to do with a war against nature?
Mankind has actually had a stupefying fixation with innovation since prior to the Russians released Sputnik in 1957. Much of our love affair with innovation has actually been really gratifying, so no grievance there. However together with the fantastic outcomes of all that unbelievable science and resourcefulness we have actually become increasingly more disconnected from the dust we have been made from.
Human beings have constantly had an unusual relationship with untidy, foul-smelling, nature. When Darwin came along people were more disgusted with the possibility that we might have ascended from the filthy, silly, apes instead of expressing a disgust that Darwin’s theory of development was challenging the dominating position we just appeared here, all spotless and unique, from the actual hand of God. Forget nature, we wish to stay away from that filth– as far as we can! Not only filthy, it can injure us, and rather easily eliminate us!
Prior to medical innovation caught up with our wildest dreams of living permanently with no suffering, we needed to make do. If an infection came along we were required to let nature run its course. Before vaccines were discovered with the development of Dr. Edward Jenner’s extraordinary work with cowpox, we didn’t have an option but to grovel at the feet of Mother Nature and let her do her thing.
Ultimately all of it ended up pretty well; we are still here, aren’t we?– due to, among other things, the miracle of our body immune systems.
Things are different now, transhumanism is on the rise and is getting here hand in hand with the upcoming technocracy– we might one day actually be able to live forever! Yahoo! Definitely we can battle this war with Covid, with nature, and win the battle– one step more detailed to dominating nature totally! We can cheat death, cheat disease, cheat suffering! Pass out the stogies!
What is the price? Mankind? That sounds too close to being ruled by nature– we certainly can quit these “human” things– smiles, touching, hugging, event– all things that engage our human bodies, and human hearts. These are things too close to what animals do, with animal bodies, animal instincts. That’s great to give up, as Fauci says, we ought to most likely never shake hands again– it’s too unsafe being human.
Although I would assume that people who are extremely jubilant to get the vaccine do not always think they are changing their body to superhuman status due to the gene treatment mechanism in the chemistry of the vaccination (I question if the majority of even understand what that is), but rather most of them are intrigued by the new technology they have heard it uses.
There is almost nothing in the modern-day medicine drug pantheon that is 100% effective, safe, or devoid of negative effects, and although it is clear the Covid vaccines also fall into this frustration, the public has undoubtedly been informed it is 95% effective and 100% safe (not troubling to be cautious to ascertain exactly what it is effective in accomplishing). They are also nearly100% synthetic, with a synthetic, high tech, system.
This view is a primary one for vaccine enthusiasts produced primarily by the bottomless pockets of the producers who invest many millions in marketing and in successful efforts to reveal their customers how safe and effective their item is. “Look at how fantastic new technologies can be!” state their targets. “Those scientists are so really creative!”
Yes, technology can be terrific, and yes, researchers can be extremely clever. Sadly, there have probably been more catastrophes in the speculative phases of products the huge pharmaceutical companies wish to market than successes– a minimum of a fair share of them. The vaccines have actually been approved as speculative treatment, nothing more.
How many times was it that Edison tested his light bulb before it succeeded? The number of times did he believe it was going to work after “this one final experiment”– and it didn’t?
There is no question that Edison was very clever, but this is the method of science and brand-new discovery, and it constantly has actually been. And do not tell me that mRNA technology has actually been studied for decades. That doesn’t cut it; Covid-19 had only been with us for about 9 months when the vaccines were presented.
For one example of this corner-cutting: you can’t have outcomes of a two-year research study up until two years have passed. And that isn’t a conspiracy theory. This article not suggested to be an indictment against Huge Pharma (there are lots of those out there currently) however it is meant to be a wakeup call to those who believe it is safe to just “take your possibilities” and bypass the fine print– presuming you can even find the fine print.
So what is all the enjoyment about? Well, if you ask anyone who has actually just gotten a jab they will probably tell you that they seem like celebrating doing their part to save the human race. They might think that is the case, but I think the genuine reason is a weird, and perhaps mostly unconscious, belief that technology will save them from actually being human. We appear to think that we have actually increased from animal status to some sort of greater, trans-human, status, or a minimum of are on our method to that lofty position.
And if we trust our researchers and others who are leading the way, we may even one day be able to transcend death itself, because death, obviously, is the messiest animal thing an animal does. And we do not desire that.
