Coronavirus - anxiety relief
« on: March 22, 2020, 03:59:25 PM »
Most people are anxious about COVID19 , aka the latest coronavirus.

I'd like to keep this thread on a positive note (do please note, Spammy et al.) to reduce anxiety and hopefully make us grateful for the moments that can bring a smile. 

I'll start off:

I have no idea where this started - I just picked a random Italian Twitter account to copy it from and have no idea how to download and reupload it.

Sorry, I just can't resist....

I find the best way to avoid anxiety about Corona virus is by simply remembering that we are all just insignificant ape descendants, inhabiting a small blue/green planet orbiting a sun within an infinite universe....
......& we're all going to die one day anyway.

So just don't worry & enjoy what little time, within the grand scheme of things, that you have left.

So true but in spite of all that we have a Saviour.  Be righteous as our Father is righteous.  That is the state we are in.   Even if everything seems pointless we are asked to be righteous, and on the Miscarriage of Justice Forum to follow the rules.

John has instructed all moderators to take a very strong line with posters who constantly breach the rules of this forum.  This sniping, goading, name calling and other various forms of disruption will cease.

True. And satellite images show how pollution has been decreasing.

Social distancing.

That's just a slight exaggeration on what is actually happening:  I passed a woman on a path this morning and we both stepped off into a bit of a bog to increase the distance between us when passing.
The remit of Operation Grange is to investigate ...  "(as if the abduction occurred in the UK)"

I don't think it was intended to reflect reality - just a means of transmitting the general message in the hope of it going viral (pun not really intended).

I would have "Liked" your comment if I could, but I can't at the moment for some odd reason.

If only you would consider what you say because it is sometimes offensive.

However, you haven't yet considered that the use of the word, "Infinite" is in itself limiting.

Carana, have you noticed that you are one vowel away from being a deadly virus?
“we have carried out a very serious investigation and there is no indication whatsoever Madeleine McCann's parents are linked to her disappearance” - Hans Christian Wolters, German Prosecutor..

“Conspiracy theories exhibit a strong obsession with detail, often taking the form of highlighting a tiny piece of evidence and blowing it up out of all proportion, buttressing their claims with a display of pseudo-scholarship.  When they examine the real evidence, conspiracy theorists do not accept that minor inconsistencies come from mistakes in reporting.” Sir Richard J Evans, author and historian

Anxiety?  Half of me is scared witless.  And the other half of me believes that there is nothing to be done.

We are just a species that Nature sometimes feels the need to cull.  I don't have a problem with this.  So long as it doesn't involve me personally.  Ho Ho.  Such is the human mind.

I do worry about this late at night.  And then I give myself a talking to.

It has always been about the survival of the fittest.  This is just another one.
