“We simply don’t have the testing capacity for the large numbers dying at home. Now only those few who had a test confirmation *before* dying are marked as victims of coronavirus… means we are undercounting the total number of victims of this pandemic.” – Mark Levine, Chair of New York City Council health committee.
It must be such a thrill to be living through these coronavirus days, with the shared enemy non-human and politically, the media-driven panic a protracted break in routine and an excuse for proactive hoarding of food and toiletries. Universal fear-mongering media clickbait feeds the public just enough useful facts to keep everyone unbalanced, needy and glued to their information streams.

Europe and the United States are the two largest economic blocs. I found this interesting map showing how the European countries would map onto the 50 United States, by equivalent GDP. Plus a few notes on China’s wealth as a nation versus a Chinese individual.
Human beings aren’t computers. We calculate slowly. Our memories are fallible.

There’s 81-114 seats like those in the attached PNG. I’ve not seen it discussed anywhere, which is crazy.

Some answers may be familiar but there is new and original theory here too, as part of the “Five Lateral Essays on Consciousness” collection.
