Uncertainty and Getting on With Life
Hit the gas, stop worrying and enjoy the rest of this ride.
We are all surrounded by risk and we generally tend to manage it pretty well: most people don’t stay up at night worrying about dying from a meteor strike, stray bullet, or plane crash. There are things that are possible but so unlikely we never consider them, nor should we.
What throws us off is when the media specifically focuses on an unlikely event and makes us think it is extremely likely - e.g. the majority of Democrats who believed it was a coin toss (50-50) that they would end up hospitalized if they were unlucky enough to catch COVID-19 in 2020.
But it’s not just Democrats who suffer from this in relation to COVID and spike protein, many people on both sides of the aisle and everywhere in between are increasingly worried about mRNA vaccine injuries and shedding to the point of becoming nearly paralyzed - people don’t want travel or work with the vaxxed, they worry what they will do if they need an emergency blood transfusion, they refuse to sleep with their marriage partners, or marry their children to anyone who was vaxxed.
There is certainly cause for concern. Judging by VAERS death reports and the likely underreporting factor of around 40, it’s been estimated that about half a million Americans may have been killed already. But if the underreporting factor is anywhere from 10-100 then the true number could be off by a factor of 2-4, i.e. it could be twice as high or 4 times lower and that’s just the death toll right now. What about in the future?
So, yes, this is concerning, that up to 1 million or so of the 269 million who got the shot already may have been killed by it - i.e. about a 0.5% chance of death.
We also have reports of myriad other problems in VAERS. And then there is the risk of the unknown: what does the future hold? How bad is shedding? Can it rewrite our DNA, can we pass it on to future generations? Is it melting our brains and our organs as we speak?
I don’t know and no one else really knows the answers to these questions.
What I do know is that we can’t live in fear for the rest of our lives. The show must go on.
We can’t let this become the end all and be all of our lives.
There are other things to consider, and there are other risks to be aware of.
There are other vaccines, and there are other toxins in our air, water and food. And we all have many individual lifestyle choices to make that can mean the difference between a long life of good health or a short life of disease.
Our children are being targeted on social media and in schools. In some classrooms as many as 9/10 kids identify as something their parents would not even have recognized 10 years ago.
We are in a proxy war with one nuclear power and gearing up to take on another nuclear power over Taiwan.
Our banking and economic systems are slowly coming apart at the seams, and dystopian forces are working to hold them together as long as possible via the implementation of social credit scores and central bank digital currencies.
Inflation may be spiraling out of control and that could economically enslave us.
And there are many more worries available - they’re served up every day on Twitter and Facebook and in news outlets. Worry and fear buys your limited and precious attention for a paltry sum.
Rather than sell yourself short - focus your attention on what is under your control and will add to your life rather than subtract from it.
Let go of worry over what you cannot control. See the glass half full rather than half empty. Assume the best will come rather than the worst.
Just because half the animals died in preclinical trials doesn’t mean half of us will die.
Just because there are 1000 papers documenting all the possible ways the spike protein can kill and maim a person, doesn’t mean that it will do so.
Just because it’s possible the mRNA retrointegrates doesn’t mean it will or if it does that it will make any difference to your longevity or health.
The point is not to stick your head in the sand like an ostrich, the point is to take the information, make a decision on how to deal with it and then get on with your life and stop obsessing over it.
For those who believe in a life after death: whether your life is short or long doesn’t really matter, what matters is what you do with the time you have. Take your best shot and leave the rest up to God.
What’s done is done, and what will happen will happen regardless of how much you want it or don’t want it: so you might as well relax and enjoy the rest of this ride.
Focus on today and what you have control over and edit your experience to remove the fear mongering. Read about the biology of belief: what you believe about your health and wellness creates your health and wellness. You are the placebo, you can create your own reality. You can choose what to let into that precious real estate between your ears, you can decide what information and thoughts you let in which will create your future beliefs about your reality and your health. If you believe in a paradigm that leaves no room for you to be healthy, then stop believing that and find someone who has a different paradigm where health is possible.
Limit social media to the bare minimum that’s absolutely necessary - eg for work, or staying in touch with loved ones, or getting necessary information from leading edge luminaries. Be purposely about it: get in and get out. Have a set time of day when you get online and don’t doom scroll to your own detriment. The best information comes from long form content - print it out so you’re not encouraged to go clicking down a never ending rabbit hole online.
Focus on the positive and shun what doesn’t benefit you.
