Vaccine - a substance used to stimulate the production of antibodies and provide immunity against one or several diseases, prepared from the causative agent of a disease, its products, or a synthetic substitute, treated to act as an antigen without inducing the disease.
"every year the flu vaccine is modified to deal with new strains of the virus"
So took a road trip for a VA appointment and received the Flu Vaccine while at it.
I mean, I rather NOT contribute to transitioning to the After-Life by my OWN actions or inactions pertaining to something Medical Science has reduced the harmful effects of.
But, I'm High-ly Medicated so there may be typos that Grammarly was like...
So picture something similar to the T.V. Series called 'Westworld'. Google it!
Now, what is sparking this explanation is a comment I received about how they "had" to work for money.
So gonna explain it in a way that should be easy to understand.
Picture 6 adult couples making their way to a clearing in the woods.
They have no memory of how they got there, but they do know they are coupled up (some with same-sex) and have different skin tones and physical features. They all understand each other even though some have different dialects.
But they are all of the same species.
Now, there are other species around, and they seem to want to eat any and everything so the group comes together as a species for the sake of survival.
They form a Community.
They must now think of the basics since they are out in the elements that also seem to want to do harm, but can be subdued to provide a benefit.
They need Fresh Water, Food, Shelter, Clothing, Tools, etc., etc.
They discover among the 12 of them, some are better at tasks than others. For whatever reason.
The 6 couples built their dwellings and would socialize from time to time when work wasn't being done to continue to build the community.
As time went on, those who were better at some things than others found themselves in excess of some things and short of other things which fell in the categories of 'NEED' and 'Wants'.
Therefore, the Bartering System was created.
What Is Barter?
Barter is an act of trading goods or services between two or more parties without the use of money —or a monetary medium, such as a credit card. In essence, bartering involves the provision of one good or service by one party in return for another good or service from another party.
EVERYONE worked to help provide for the Community and for Themselves.
As time went on, the Community had to cope with challenges such as Death, Illnesses, Injuries, Shortages of Supplies, Security, Mapping out new areas to search for more supplies, etc. etc.
As time went on, children appeared.
That meant even more supplies would be required to support the growing Community.
However, FEAR set in among the humans.
The What Ifs.
What if I get hungry for food and have none and nothing of which to barter with?
What if I thirst for water and have none and nothing of which to barter with?
Out of this FEAR, both Adults and Children begin "taking" what wasn't theirs.
Some begin to TRIGGER others with their actions.
So the Community, in order to be able to have everyone live together in harmony, gathered the original Elders that were still alive and established a 'Council'.
This Council establishes the Dos and Dont's within the Community.
Anyone that did not agree with the finish list was free to venture out and live elsewhere.
The Council elected those to Enforce the rules and established methods and degrees of Punishment to deter further rule-breaking.
They aslo set up a Chief Elder that made the final decisions if there could not be a simple majority vote on anything.
They assigned those to jobs throughout the Community providing Products and Services to Maintain, Protect, and Provide for The Community. Always trying to make it better for all.
As time went on, some felt the desire to venture out and start their own Communities.
It was a big world after all and there were in the newer Generations those who wanted to do things THEIR way so they had to Create a Community of lack-minded individuals.
However, the basics were as follows:
- You work to eat.
- You don't take what is not yours.
- You break the rules, you pay the price.
- Elected Elders make the Rules.
- One can Obey, One can Leave the Community, or One can Disobey and be Punished by your Community.
- The Community will care for its Elderly and Disabled out of Compassion.
As time went on, the world began to house so many different Communities with different Rules, Beliefs, Ways of Doing Things, Different Talents and Skills and Intellect, Services and Products, Resources, etc. etc.
As time went on.....Some Communities either Bartered with other Communities or Took As They Pleased if they could.
Alliances were then formed out of the strength in numbers philosophy.
So WHY do you work for money?
Because YOU live in a Community that Demands it.
Why do some NOT work?
Because they Can't or Won't.
Those that Can't are being cared for by the Community. (e.g., Physically Disabled, Mentally Impaired, etc...)
Those that Won't work survive the best way they know how to survive, but many end up being Punished by the Community for breaking its rules simply to Survive because they Don't want to Work!
As time went on, the Elders created forms of Government so now here we are in the Present.
Everything going on around us is simply Communities, at every level, trying to survive and having to continually RESPONDED to threats to it both from Within and Without.
"Vaccinations are the strongest form of protection against the virus, but only Americans 12-years-old and older are eligible. But studies for vaccines for younger children are underway, and US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said that younger children will be vaccinated by the end of the year."
"Stress, depression, frustration, anger, and a negative outlook on life not only make us unhappy people but negatively impact our health and longevity," said Levine, who chaired the AHA's scientific statement on the connection between mental well-being and heart disease.
The good news, Levine said, is that because the mind, heart, and body are interconnected and interdependent, a person can also improve their cardiovascular health by striving for a positive psychological outlook.
So today, sadly, my younger Brother passed due to COVID.
He is the first of the core family (Grandmother, Mother, Sister (2 Years-Older), & Brother (1 Year-Younger) to have transitioned to the After-Life.
We were estranged growing up, but created a Brotherly-Love-Understanding between each other.
He once left his Christian Roots, but later returned and became a Bishop in his faith.
However, it was his faith and fear that prevented him from receiving the COVID Vaccine.
He had recently lost his 1st wife earlier this year to cancer.
He remarried and was expecting twin girls this coming November.
He traveled to Florida recently and contracted COVID.
His wife feared him returning to Ga and giving it to her and the yet-to-be-born twins.
His wife was also a mother of 2 younger kids.
He returned home.
The wife contracted the virus.
The wife transitioned to the After-Life last week.
The twins were taken and have been on life support since.
I might respect other people's religious or spiritual beliefs, but when it comes to people dying over a virus that clearly there is a vaccine for to help prevent the dying part, then choosing not to take it and dying is more of a choice and I just can't feel a sense of....grief.
Well, not yet.
It has played out as one of many alternate realities I've envisioned.
People will make their choices.
I loved my Brother and he lived and died as he pleased by NOT taking the vaccine.
