Coronavirus, Aptil 21

Coronavirus is here.  My life goes on: somewhere between dream and beyond.  And what do I think of but Bernie as Biden's Director of Pandemic Response.
I listen to Harari's class and think of the changes as if in a different dimension.

Humankind lives in a world of dreams shaped by words: god, baryon, evil, gravity, ethics, news, travel, terror, carbon, freedom, greed, enemy, consciousness, measurement, family.  Some words have interpretations which can be discussed mathematically; we call those discussions science.  Some words do not: we call those discussions, humanities.  Science does not tell us how to behave, that is the realm of the humanities; however, it gives us information to help us understand and evaluate potential actions.
