🔥NEW Would thinking about Covid in the same way as what I think was called 'the selfish gene' help us understand its 'mission'? To preserve its existence, Covid needs to spread, but spreading to someone who dies with the virus inside them does not help this objective. Therefore would mutant versions that spread better, but are less deadly, be in the Virus' development plans? Also would a systems approach to biologic systems lead us to believe that once large demographic groups have been immunised, the virus would have a two pronged development plan - to mutate to mitigate the effects of the virus and to target other non vaccinated demographics?

The Systems Approach to Covid Virus Understanding

Can we assume that Covid Virus has its own "mission"? Let's think systematically. From the point of view of a systems approach, each system has its own super-system. You can call this super-system whatever you like: the Universal Mind, Universal Super-computer or the Lord God. So suppose this Super-system decided that it is time to stop the merciless exploitation of the Earth's resources and change the way of life of earthlings in order to stop their self-destruction. Anyone who learns to live in peace in their communities, without taking more from nature than necessary, will be able to survive. However, those who do not overcome their excessive greed will die from Covid Virus. To prove this hypothesis, one can cite numerous examples of nature's self-healing due to the absence of human activity.
