How COVID-19 Transformed Our Intelligence – Part 1
It’s been more than a year since COVID-19 first made its appearance in Wuhan, China and to this date, we have not fully recovered from the virus collectively. The rising waves of cases are testing our immune system and despite the overwhelming number of new cases, we crave for our usual routines. There are many factors why humans begin to ‘normalise’ COVID-19. One of them is our adaptability in dealing with our survival. We open to a new possibility where we are finding a way to co-exist with COVID-19. Our innate intelligence and the immune system are the players behind it.
Fear and Immune System
Do you know the primal fears you feel, particularly the fear for your survival is governed by the immune system? It is our primary intelligence that operates through instinct and intuition.
Our immune system does not just fight viruses or bacteria, but the innate intelligence can gather energetic information from the environment and translate the information into intuition and instinct. In the presence of danger, our bodies communicate and prompt us into fight or flight response. Even though we do not experience a threat all the time, our immune system gathers information. Our wellbeing evolves on the corrective patterns and memory we build towards taste, hearing, and smell.
With COVID-19, our immune system learns to adapt through changing patterns. It is one of the transformations we have experienced. Besides fighting the virus, immune intelligence also indirectly finds a way to survive socially and economically. Our collective immune system is the reason why regulations around COVID-19 change rapidly to ensure that the economy and social didn’t plunge to death. We began with strict lockdowns worldwide and soon realised it might not be entirely ideal economically. Without this extraordinary intelligence, we are not able to adapt to the changing patterns.
In the next issue, we will look into the economic and social transformation around COVID-19.
