Covid dreams

Lately my dreams have taken on a nightmarish quality tinged with the sadness that this virus has brought to everyone's life, as we live in fear of contracting an illness that no one knows much about just yet. What is today's nightmare might actually lead to something more positive because it really brings out the best in many people and they will develop new ways of coping as a result. Maybe if we are all really lucky many of those people who drive often and needlessly will suddenly realize their error, and many people who hoarded goods while keeping resources from the rest of us will think twice . It does not require religion but just a wake up call for everyone biologically speaking to understand what is at stake and maybe it is in part the wake up call we were all waiting for in order to make permanent changes in our lifestyles and habits. Let's hope for the future sounds really inadequate, it is more like we have to realize that unless we change we are all in one way or another doomed to fail as a species -- am I the only one who believes that this changes everything?

No matter

Not much will be different.
An overwhelming majority is absolutely dying (heh) to get back to "normal". And they will. Humans hate change.
It may take a year, but the ostentatious waste that is our human existence, will resume. The rich will be richer. There will be vastly more poor people. Amazing new technologies will enable more of the same.
The show will go on, until it can't. And you'll almost certainly live to see it, unless the bug gets you.
Cheer up. Everything will work out.

I dreamt that someone touched my hand. I was then obsessed with having to wash my hand.

Is to react as you note, make some initial changes with some hopeful energy, then fall right back into the old patterns not long after. But I suspect more people will be working from home after all this, and fewer people will travel in the same way, for a while...

I think you're all being overly dramatic of the situation.
