We are heading towards the end of this remarkable year, during which we were suddenly profoundly affected in our comfortable, affordable and plentiful life by a tiny nuisance, a virus. In our part of the world, the statistics of virus infections and virus caused deaths are far from encouraging, revealing that, despite all the available knowledge and immense advances in science and technology, we are very vulnerable as a society. Science will in the end provide a solution to the present problems, but the experience with Covid must make us reflect on our way of life, our existence, on future social challenges, on our lack of respect for nature and much more. As we’ve already said in NL1 “we can also view the virus as a catalyst for a necessary transition from the present human awareness to another – from separateness to community, from competition to collaboration and from nature serving humanity to humanity as a part of nature”. It can be seen from the rich human history, that in the end we will overcome this Covid situation. We will sincerely mourn all the unwanted victims of the virus, but we will be enriched with new experiences, and hopefully will build a better world together.
