Wow in your country courts even work on the saints who can't or struggle to push away the infection of heartlessness and cruelty that has infected their followers.

Pretty cool. Looks like an underemployed judiciary there.

Not to forget.....

1) according to some experts Italy is hard it because it has the oldest population in Europe

2) ~45% of Indians are under 25 years and ~86% under 55 years

3) Namaste as their form of greeting.

Btw, Doctors in India have been successful in treating Coronavirus. Combination of drugs used: Lopinavir, Retonovir, Oseltamivir along with Chlorphenamine and could could become the emergency mode line of treatment for coronavirus.

Hi X17
You asked..
"Finally Is Probability one in 20 95% and one in five 25% ??"

Yes and no.
A one in 20 chance means that of 100 repeated measures, only five will be variant. That's 95% reliability. That is the minimum standard for scientific significance (three sigma for non - normal distributions and two sigma for normal distributions) . This is the minimum level scientists must achieve to have
" significant results ".

But that range can vary to only one in five, according to professor Lombriser, which would be 20%. If that turns out to be more reliable, it is high enough to suggest there is something to this bubble hypothesis, but it may be incomplete and a missing force or configuration is at work that is yet to be defined.

However, if that 95% result holds up under repeated independent testing, then the bubble hypothesis is proven as a scientific fact.

Right now it is a hypothesized solution, but is yet to be proven. The mystery is solved by a conventional physics hypothesis alone, and now must be tested and verified.

Posted by: Spence Tepper | March 14, 2020 at 09:45 PM

No need for now repeatedly stating that this paper is just a hypothesis at the moment. It was obvious from the start to all who bothered to even take a casual look at the article - like I have done. It would have helped if even you had done this. Would have saved you the embarrassing shift in stance.

Anyways now coming to probabilities. 4 red ball and 1 white ball. What's the probability of drawing a white ball? Only a deep thinker, a true saint maybe, would answer this question as - the probability of drawing a red ball is 0.80. So much for your initial response 'Yes and no' when specifics are being dealt with as is probably the case even here.

In this paper, what's the event whose probability is being guesstimated btw?

And the range of what can vary to 1 in 5 and why does this conveniently become 20% for you and not 80% just like 1 in 20 is viewed as 95% by you.

What an amazing hypothesis it seems to be with an occurrence or non-occurrence of something in the range of 95% (1 in 20) to 80% (1 in 5) This must be the reason for the comment in the article '

'It is not a theoretician’s fantasy'.

Hi 7,

Thanks for asking—my mom and dad are much better. They’re doing well. Mom took hydroxychloroquine for 4 days and my dad took it for a little over a week. He had been sick for about 10 days before he started on the medicine and his immune system is really weak as it is Like, there is no reason on earth why he should still be alive—he has so many health issues. But they are both feeling well now.

Btw, Doctors in India have been successful in treating Coronavirus. Combination of drugs used: Lopinavir, Retonovir, Oseltamivir along with Chlorphenamine and could could become the emergency mode line of treatment for coronavirus.
Posted by: Trevor Smith | March 18, 2020 at 07:37 AM

Yes, they are using the same drugs here. The HIV antivirals are expensive. And Oseltamivir (Tamiflu) is what they first put my dad on but he just continued to get worse.

But hey, whatever works. There are many options out there. Different areas and countries seem to have different preferences.

Bottom line, if you feel sick, go to the doctor. If you’ve been in contact with someone you know has COVID-19 then get tested (don’t go around spreading it).

And every person responds to drugs differently. Fortunately we all responded the same way. Started of slowly and then all of the sudden you feel like hell—chest pain, sweats, low grade fever and cough and just so achey and tired. I’ve had bad cases of the flu a few times in my life. My husband and I both got West Nile Virus when we lived in Colorado. I rested a lot but he kept working until one day we had to rush him to the emergency room. He almost died. It was really stupid. You have to rest when you are sick!

So, with this last illness, for me and my mom and dad we literally felt like hell and then about an hour after taking the medicine the pain went away. But it would wear off after about 6 or 7 hours. Then take another dose and feel better for the same amount of time (rinse and repeat) until finally you don’t feel sick.

Like I said, whatever works. Just make sure you get really good medical care. And wash your hands all of the time. Don’t touch your face.

I went to the store today and recognized about 100 ways I could catch or spread a disease just through my usual way of touching things. I can’t imagine how we’re actually going to keep this from spreading to at least 80% of the population.

I meant to add in, “I’ve had bad cases of the flu in my life but nothing like this.”

West Nile Virus wasn’t even this painful. And it caused meningitis!

Hi X17
You asked
"In this paper, what's the event whose probability is being guesstimated btw?"

The null hypothesis: The hypothesized bubble explains the differences between the two popular methods used to calculate the rate of expansion.

Using the hypothesized variance in matter density inside the bubble to adjust mathematically the results of the local method (using standard candles) produces the same results as the background radiation method 19 times out of 20, or 95% of the time. Or statistically, there is a 95% probability that the two methods of measuring the same thing (one with the professor's correction factor) are actually doing so.

That's the high end of professor Lombriser'probability range. And that meets the standard for statistical significance.

But the professor also gives this a range of variability down to only one on five. There are some variations to either the samples he is using for his calculation, or some of the assumptions, such as the exact percentage of difference in matter density and the size of the bubble.
That's only 20% of the time his Calculation adjustments accurately generated the same result as the background radiation measurement. That is not high enough for statistical Significance. But that is high enough to support that something is there. Some impact of different mass and diameter to a degree, more or less, can be used to create an adjustment that brings the results of both methods of calculation closer.


Hi 777,

You say: "At least try to hear the violin - a very high frequency tone - it is your Soul"

I do have a kind of high pitched sound in my head, not like a violin though, that would be difficult to manage probably would totally lose the plot and drift around in a dream like state :) Oops I do that already lol.

This self-isolating advice because of the coronavirus suits me because thats the kind of quiet lifestyle I have anyway.

Hope you and your family are going okay. The advice seems to be always about older people catching the virus so we have to be careful, but I think positive thinking helps anyway and a bit of magical Shabd also helps.

Cheers, Jen

I can’t believe that you are still talking about Hubble’s Constant. I read your “papers”/links and am trying to understand why it’s so important.

Is it constant? What is dark matter? And what does any of this have to do with every day life? https://youtu.be/7TZP13qXZQg

Side note; the Andromeda Galaxy makes me happy. When I look at pictures of galaxies I get really strong and powerful feelings—every range of emotion from peaceful to beautiful to exciting to disturbing to terrifying. Just depends on the galaxy. Yep, I know it’s weird. I’m kind of glad we have so much light pollution because if I could see galaxies the way we earthlings used to be able to see them before light pollution, I would see the galaxies I love and then some I don’t love. Some are just really upsetting to look at even if their symmetry or design seems aesthetically appealing.

Luckily, it’s not a problem as long as I don’t go googling images of different galaxies.

I used to always believe it was mass that caused the “heaviness” in this world. But mass doesn’t create the heavy feeling—inertia does. Mass and inertia are totally different, as you know.

Our ability to move faster is what makes us feel lighter. But moving faster, feeling lighter/cleaner and getting things done (the most efficient way) has more to do with overcoming inertia. And inertia is more of a mind thing, IMO.

There’s so much research on this. People keep sending me links re this med for COVID-19. Many research tests show hydroxychloroqine works better than just chloroquine phosphate.

But doesn’t mean it will work for everyone. Some people might need the HIV antivirals... maybe cancer patients and people compromised at that level or people with certain intolerances. Anyway, I’m not trying to preach about it, but I wanted to show their is a good deal research behind it... people need to work with their doctors. All I’m saying is it’s not like I was recommending some homeopathic quackery solution for a pandemic type virus.

Here’s one link.

That's because all three are true saints at the minimum. One might be a shade better being a stage actor.

So they concern themselves with the bigger picture, the larger issues that afflict the universe. Unknown to ordinary humans is the havoc the Hubble constant wrecks. The Corona virus pales in comparison.

This is why the three are at it. Wish them luck @Sonia. The universe is at stake here.

Hey Sonia

I had a look at the link to ‘Essential Sant Mat’ from the RSSB website. After an initial scan, some of it does seem to be shifting focus. A few direct quotes:

1. ’A true spiritual master is interested only in developing the disciple’s awareness of truth’

Can’t argue with that - however I find it hard to remember if it was ever put that way in the literature I used to read, and there are several lines in the article that mention ‘Awareness’.

2. ‘…merging our consciousness with the creative energy or divine power which permeates every human being and indeed the entire cosmos’.

Ok = Other words for shabd. Yet it also seems to becoming more ‘inclusive’? Maybe in future they may add in references to the Divine Mother or even Shakti? - Holy Gaucamole!

3. ‘….the natural consequence of being born into a body that will not last forever. True masters view the present human life as one in a series of lives, governed by cause and effect’.

While karma is mentioned, what’s interesting here is that nothing is said about the ‘soul’ being affected by karma. In my view this is another and more useful signal that what gets affected by karma is mind not soul. Clarified further when Charan Singh is quoted:

4. ‘When it [the mind] becomes attached to the inner sound and light..’

The only time soul is mentioned is in a quote from Jagat Singh:

5. ‘All the pleasures of the world, the attachment to body and senses, the I-ness and duality have to be discarded before the soul can become fit to partake of the sweetness of Nam.

Sets a hi bar for us plebs. Soul comes into play in/is a state of non-separation. It’s about the totality of consciousness imo.

As I keep harping on- the interpretation of soul as some sort of separated individualised entity is problematic. Current RSSB teachings seem to be evolving? to address this while at the same time maintaining a line of dogma to keep the organisation functioning?

Oh and by the way a last quote:

6. ‘….live a clean, honest and moral life, in all areas of personal and sexual relations and in business. A true master sets very high standards here, well beyond what is required by society at large’

While this may still be the case it sure looks like this is problematic also!

Best wishes

So... this is sort of petty but I should have typed “it’s Sant Mat in a light I’ve never seen before”.

The grammar police caught me... 😐

@Tim Rimmer,

Essential Sant Mat is focusing more on “the” one thing while becoming a lot more inclusive of people in general. It’s very simple, but profoundly better said. Same message without all the unnecessary superfluous stuff that used to make people think they were “special”. Special in an arrogant way that is.

I was just really pleasantly surprised by it.

That’s beautiful. I’ve always had an affinity for Sikhs. I think I was Sikh in a past life. Really awesome what they’re doing to help here, especially in the hard hit war zone of New York. 🙏

I wish I were Indian... but an Indian living in the US. I always wished I had brown eyes and long dark brown hair and their graceful beauty and elegance. Oh well...

This is a continuation of my last comment.

I think it all stems from this girl I went to school with. We sat next to each other in grade school. She was the only Indian in our school and her dad was a surgeon—mega rich too. He invested well. Anyway, her name was Rani and she was voted most attractive girl in school when we moved on to Junior High and High School. I was always a bit jealous.

All of the Indians where I grew up were extremely wealthy and spoiled and their kids were brats. You don’t come to this part of America unless you’re a doctor or working for the University in some specialized department. So, my perspective on Indians my whole life was very different. Here, where I grew up they were obnoxious. The parents were nice but the kids were so ridiculously spoiled. One girl I knew got married and her parents spent a few million dollars on her wedding. They had a destination wedding in Laguna Beach. Her mom had a coffee table book of the wedding. I have honestly never seen anything like it in my life. I was invited to go only because her mom liked me but didn’t go because I would have never fit in with that crowd. Anyway, it was probably the most beautiful wedding I’ve ever seen (in pictures). But that’s quite extravagant in my opinion. I understand weddings are important but Jesus!

It wasn’t till I visited India for the first time in 2013 that I truly understood how poor some if not most Indians live. I was so surprised. When I planned my trip I was really looking forward to the train ride from Delhi to Beas because I assumed (based on the kids I here) that I’d be traveling first class in “Executive Coach” through some beautiful scenic countryside. 🤣🤣🤣

One of my brother’s Indian friends said, “Even Indians don’t visit India!!!” He was joking but trying to prepare me.

I love it, though. 😊

Will Indians unite and pull it off? I pray so....given the odds staked up against us.

I’m sooo NOT in the mood for any shit today...

The more you look for truth, the harder it is to find. This world is overflowing with pretentious, self-righteous, know-it-alls who are completely out of touch with the lives of those struggling to keep food on the table, a roof over their head and proper healthcare.

So generous of these CEOs not to take a salary while they’re workers are laid off. 🙄🙄🙄🙄 I’m trying to imagine what it’s like to have enough money to be able to forfeit your salary willingly. 🤔🤔🤔🤔

There are only two certainties in this world—the world with always be full of suffering and we all die in the end.

Now I think I know what it feels like to be a nihilist.

I used to be really into the New Age movement and read quite a bit about the Four Yugas.

Kali Yuga, what we are now living in...

"It isn’t hard to recognize that even though we live on a planet that surrounds us with beauty, that there is a lot of darkness happening within humanity. The ancient Sanskrit teachings understood that civilization goes through distinct cycles of creation and destruction."

"Kali Yuga: The final age lasts only one tenth of the cycle, however, that is certainly long enough as it is the age of darkness and ignorance. People slide further down the path of dishonesty, with virtue being of little value. Passions become uncontrollable as unrestrained sexual indulgences and manipulations run through society. Liars and hypocrites rise. Important knowledge is lost and scriptures become less and less common. The human diet is now ‘dirty’, and people are not even close to being as powerful as their ancestors in the Satya Yuga. Likewise, the once pristine environment is now polluted. Water and food become scarce, as do family bonds."

@Jen

We’re definitely in the Kali Yuga... hopefully at the very end. I don’t care if I’m reincarnated or not. I just want this to be over.

Today was a turning point for me. There’s so much in the fabric of society that’s about to implode. For the first time in my life I finally got to the point of “Oh well, if we die, we die”. Just this deep feeling of helplessness and hopelessness. No matter how hard we try, every leader and every group and organization has their own ideas on how to fix this mess. And no one agrees which is slowing progress even more. But it’s too much to “fix”. We will suffer some pretty massive blows before this over—the entire world will. I guess this is where a Zen attitude of acceptance is the only thing that’s going to help one maintain their sanity.

I’ll be amazed if all of our key government and intelligence agency heads keep from 🤯🤯🤯 considering all that’s at stake. People are going start to crack or just adapt an attitude of apathetic resignation.

Honestly, the hardest part is that no one, and I mean no one, can seem to agree on what are the best steps to take. We’re like officers (that are supposed to be on the same team) in a stalemate before even going out into the battle zone.

It’s truly f*d up.

Hopefully tomorrow will be better. I hope so because it’s literally life or death.

Anyone else in America having trouble with their Verizon service? Just curious.

Anyway, on another note, Biden seriously seems to be showing signs of dementia or Alzheimer’s. Bernie is our only real hope. 🤷🏻‍♀️

God failed. He failed miserably.

Zen Buddhism is as close to the truth as you will find, imo.

I don’t believe in God. I think the best we can do is learn to accept what life has given us. Through acceptance you will find peace.

https://www.healthline.com/health/mental-health/delusions-of-grandeur

Once a king called upon all of his wise men and asked them, “Is there a mantra which works in every situation, in every circumstance, in every place and in every time – in every joy, every sorrow, every defeat, and every victory – one answer for all questions? Something which can help me when none of you is able to advise me? Tell me, is there any mantra?”

All the wise men were puzzled by the King’s question. After a lengthy discussion, an old man suggested something which appealed to all of them. They went to the King and gave him a ring with words engraved into it, with a condition that the King was not to read it out of curiosity. Only if, in extreme danger, when the King finds himself alone and there seems to be no way out, only then he can read it. The King wore the ring without reading the engraving.

Some time later, the neighbors attacked the kingdom. The King and his army fought bravely but lost the battle. The King fled on his horse and the enemies followed him. The King found himself standing at the mouth of a deep ditch. If he jumped into it, there would be no way out. The sound of the enemy horses were approaching fast and the King became restless. There was nowhere else to go.

The King remembered his ring and about the engraving. He decided to read the message.

“This, too, shall pass.”

The King read it again and again until something struck him. Yes! This, too, will pass. Only a few days ago, I was enjoying my kingdom; I was the mightiest of all the Kings. Yet today, the Kingdom and all its pleasures are gone. I am trying to flee from my enemies. But just as those days of luxuries have gone, this time of danger will pass, too. Calm came over the King. He remained still and silent. The King looked around at the place where he was standing and realized how beautiful it was. He had never known that such a beautiful place existed in his Kingdom.

The revelation of the ring’s message had a great effect on him. He relaxed and forgot about his pursuing enemies. After a while, he realized that the noise of galloping horses had receded and that his enemies had lost him.

The King gathered himself and reorganized his shambled forces and fought again. He defeated the enemy and reclaimed his empire. When he returned to the city after the victory, he was received with much fanfare. The whole capital was rejoicing and everyone was in a festive mood. Flowers rained down upon the King from every house, from every terrace as he trotted by. People were dancing and singing. In this moment the King thought to himself, “I am one of the bravest and greatest Kings. It is not easy to defeat me.” In all of the celebration an ego emerged in the King.

Then a ray of sunlight caught the King’s ring and sharply flashed into his eye reminding him of its message, “This, too, shall pass.”

He lowered his gaze and his valiant expression changed to one of humility. He realized, again, that if this, too, is going to pass, it is not yours. The defeat was not yours. The victory was not yours. You are just a player. Everything passes by. We are witnesses of all of this. We are the beholders.

Happiness comes and goes. Sorrow comes and goes. And Life?

This, too, shall pass.

God failed. He failed miserably.

There are people actually saying Why would God actually allow such a virus? Why would God allow such an epidemic and in here @One pronounces God failed. It's as if some things happens and God intervenes and then there are other things that happen and God doesn't intervene. The fundamental point missed is - Nothing happens unless God makes it happen. Everything that happens, happens for a divine purpose and a divine reason otherwise IT CANNOT HAPPEN.

At least one of them is from Sach Khand. Lol

Yes, it is odd that certain blood types are less likely to get C19 than others. I’m O+ but the most important blood group would be the O- (universal blood donor) and AB (universal plasma donor).

O+ can take any blood type but we can’t donate to everyone.

The American Red Cross breaks down the different blood types here:

Hi dear Sonia,
Yeahh we all feel indeed a bit sick and /or depressed.
It's terrible to feel worried about loved ones.
And we can't freely travel to them etc..
I feel often sick in winter ,a sort of cold and can not really overcome..
I am 73 a bit old now physically while I feel a'' child'' also..
Yes I am from the Netherlands..
It's cold here ,sometimes nice and warm in the sun but with a very cold wind,.
I can't see the news all the time,because I can't handel it..
Much love to all of you and I hope this will pass soon!
Nature enjoys the peace quiet and clean air....

I think the food packets from RSSB are very nice..
The sewadars are working very hard in Dera that is what I heard.

I do'nt know how the Singh brothers are doing right now.
I think often about them.
My son is the same age..Malvinder was one year old when my son was born.

Hi Jen,

Hope you are doing well and are able to keep in touch with friends and family during this time of uncertainty.

Thanks for "not noticing". LOL

But I do feel like a Bee. A lot of things rise to the surface or get magnified during stressful times. Like, I thought South African men were misogynistic, but Indian men are the worst!!! I honestly believe Inda's karma as a third world country has everything to do with how it treats its women... women in general.

Despite the fact that we are upside down on a lot of things here in the States, I would so much rather be an American than have to go through what the poor people in other countries are going through. Perhaps Australia and New Zealand are doing better than most but these are still difficult times for all.

Hi s*

73? You're still young! :) So nice that you live near your grandkids. My stepdaughter and her husband used to live in Leiden and we visited them there. I absolutely loved it. But I don't mind that type of weather. Probably not the most ideal place for warm-weather birds.

It is indeed very nice what RSSB has done to help all of the local communities.

Yes, I've been kind of curious about the Singhs. I actually wrote a long letter to GSD at the beginning of March. Not about that but other stuff and questions. However, I doubt mail is getting delivered as it should and even if it did, it's not likely they have time to read all the mail. Especially mine! It would probably be flagged for burning. LOL I don't know what I was thinking.

Anyway... yes, this too shall pass.


Hey, Sonia.

It isn't quite a lockdown. We're under orders to stay at home as much as possible but allowed to go outside and travel around. Local buses are free during the crisis, but we're discouraged from using them unless necessary. To protect the drivers, passengers exit and enter through the rear door, and the front section is chained off, except for the disabled, who on many buses board by a folding ramp through the front.

I went to the post office yesterday and noticed handy packing tape X's on the floor spaced 6 feet apart to maintain social distance while in line. We still see delivery trucks and cars and bikes and pedestrians, but fewer. Some people wear masks, but most don't. They walk their dogs or jog or buy supplies. The only place to see other humans in numbers is out for fresh air and sunshine in parks or by the waterfront, but most everyone's being good about distance.

The subways are still running too. There's comfort in that, and I was a little stubborn at first, running around to recover stuff from work and hoard cat food and litter, but I felt queasy, violating the principle of safety in numbers deeply ingrained from three decades here.

Not that I've ever encountered many threats. The year before last, a homeless guy decided to talk smack at me every time I walked by, my fault in his brain for reminding him of his brother, a Catholic priest, and refusing to fall for his ridiculous hustle, give him $10 for repayment of $20.

There was another time I went to see friends play at an East Village bar, but when I got there, realized I didn't have the $5 to get in. I stood outside deciding what to do, alone in the cold and dark under a construction scaffold, when this guy comes up, reaches into his waistband, and asks, "Want me to shoot you?" like I'm sketchy and don't belong there! His down jacket is unzipped and his hand concealed behind one open side of it. With one hand I clutch his wrist, so he can't pull the hand back out, and with the other I bunch the two halves of his jacket firmly below the collar. Then I look him in the eye, say "No," and push and release him gently, like I'm granting him permission to live. Maybe I did look sketchy. Back then I went around unshaven with long hair and a black leather overcoat, but what was I thinking??? I'm no tough guy and have no idea whether he really had a gun or what the heck he was up to. Crazy.

But that's nothing compared to another coworker at the time, who wrestled the gun from a robber late night home on the J train to Halsey St. In the struggle a shot went off, but he twisted the gun at the guy's crotch, asked "You wanna shoot now motherf***er?" and kept the gun when the crook let go and ran--justice for holding up two of his friends a few days before. The next morning he saw the guy on the subway platform, and they exchanged hey-man-what-up's like nothing ever happened. Life in the big city 25 years ago. These days I worry about my wallet more around the rich than the poor.

Nevertheless, I'm done with subways for now and ranging beyond walking distance. I'm nervous just going downstairs for the mail, but when I get outside and see people looking casual, I relax too. We had a few days of panic buying at first, but supermarkets are stocked again. Society hasn't broken down, although I've been practicing at baking in case bread becomes scarce! On one hand, the fear of something can be worse than the reality, but on the other, this virus is a ninja lurking in the shadows.

Wow! Life must be quite a bit different for you right now. I’m used to your usual hilarious one liners... occasionally more but you just write a column piece.

Fascinating. Life in Brooklyn... where all the hipsters moved more than a decade ago.

Your “tough guy” stories are pretty cool. 😄 I mean they’re funny but what’s even funnier is that you haven’t had more run-ins in all the time you’ve lived there. You must be in a nicer part—do you live near the Williamsburg area? I almost moved to that part in 2007 but found that rental agents are impossible to work with over the phone. I was trying to secure a place while living out of state. The few places available that were decent and in my price range would go to the first person with cash in hand. If only there had been Google pay or Apple Pay then...

Ahh, but that could have changed the entire course of my life which might have f*kd with fate a little more than fate had patience for.

Anyway, I’m pleasantly surprised to hear you’re a cat lover and a good “owner” (“owner” kind of seems like a horrible way to refer to our pets but “parent” might be stretching it a bit).

Too many curious minds too keep track of, really.

Well, I’m between painting the entire inside of the house a lighter shade of grey (not my idea), listening to an audiobook and wondering whether or not it falls within the social distancing guidelines to have our neighbor’s kid walk our dog, Marshall, I found time to watch this: https://youtu.be/ElIf2DBrWzU.

What bothered me more than anything as far as Trump is concerned was his concern about how this pandemic’s affect on the markets could negatively impact his re-election campaign. I was never a big Trump fan but I did have high hopes he would step to the plate with regards to COVID-19. In some ways he has and in some ways definitely not, IMO.

However, I agree with Oliver in that how a country handles a health crisis, as serious as this one, speaks volumes about the country.

He talks about purifying the face, which is also being talked about on video (Australian Government Department of Health) that "Officials keep warning the public not to touch their faces". Whenever I read that I automatically touch my face...

@Trevor,

I just finished listening to the audiobook version of ‘Have a Little Faith’.

Truly very beautiful and touching.

“I am in love with hope”. Yes, that sums it up perfectly. (And you can’t flip to the back of the book to read that when it’s an audiobook! 😂)

So in this period the number of cases in India doubled (750 on 1st April), though the absolute number of ~2000 is still relatively small.

A friend sent this link to me a while ago and it gave me a better perspective.

https://www.astrologyzone.com/store/coronavirus/

Oddly enough I’ve felt better and have been calmer/happier this week then I have been in years as years.

But April 4th is supposed to be a difficult day. And historically, April 3rd has been very bad for me. If I could take one day out of the calendar each year, it would be April 3rd.
