Omicron Variant: Scariant, Black Swan, or Nothingburger?
What do Loki and COVID-19 have in common? Quite a lot, actually.
In between family connections and the obligatory turkey, I managed to binge-watch all six episodes of Loki over Thanksgiving weekend. Tom Hiddleston plays a “variant” of Loki who split off into a new timeline. This new Loki variant has to defend himself from the Time Variance Authority, who’d prefer to “prune” him, were it not for the pleas of a salty TVA investigator aptly named Mobius, played by a grey-haired Owen Wilson.
The main Loki character, it turns out, is just one of an almost infinite number of Loki variants who have been hunted (and pruned) by the TVA.
I couldn’t help but wonder at the wording, “variant,” used to describe anyone who steps off the “Sacred Timeline” in Loki. It seemed a bit coincidental while the news was blaring out all sorts of fear porn regarding the COVID-19 Omicron variant all weekend.
Would that all these new covid variants were as smooth-talking and sexy as Tom Hiddleston as Loki, but alas. We’re dealing with wayward viruses that apparently need “pruning,” not mythological trickster gods.
That said, it’s hard not to feel like we’re in some bad sci-fi film what with COVID-19 disrupting global life as effectively as a supervillain.
Many of us are wondering if there’s a man (or woman) behind the curtain, orchestrating it all, hatching diabolical schemes and laughing maniacally as new covid variants spread across the planet.
Meanwhile, our “Time Variance Authority” (aka government) is busy trying to desperately stamp out any new covid variant, banning travel a day too late and instituting further restrictions...lest a new covid Loki pop up and threaten Life As We Know It.
We wouldn’t want to disturb the Sacred Covid Timeline now, would we?
Covid the Trickster
I tried to get a sense of what people’s reactions were to the new Omicron variant this weekend. The news was immediately breathless and reveling in the doom porn. Off-the-beaten-path online forums were buzzing with the typical “scariant hype” chatter, some going so far as to assert Omicron wasn’t even real. (This is, actually, a step up from the people who think covid itself isn’t real.)
The idea is that covid is simply a reason to justify lockdowns and tyranny, so new “variants” will be used again and again to keep the terror going.
On the opposite end of the conspiracy spectrum, there are those who suspect that Omicron isn’t just real, but worse, purposefully bioengineered by some nefarious puppetmaster (China, perhaps)...a variant mechanically designed to evade vaccines and cause a real “Dark Winter” this Christmas.
Still others are saying that Omicron is being hyped up to mask vaccine deaths.
While some are hoping that Omicron will be actually less deadly, this doesn’t stop the media from publishing fearful stories that insinuate in conclusion that the variant was caused by the unvaccinated in Africa. (Never mind that everyone who spread Omicron via international travel was pretty much vaccinated.)
...which just gives further credence to those who speculate that Omicron hype is a ruse to justify vaccinating Africa, which has a low vaccination rate but also a low rate of covid deaths (possibly due in part to Ivermectin).
Can you sense a Loki type energy going on here? We have world chaos going on.
Omicron Variant: Black Swan or Nothingburger?
A “black swan” is a sudden, often catastrophic event that changes life as we know it (probably for the much, much worse). COVID-19 was actually a black swan, but we’re still experiencing some levels of normality...for now. We can still pretend that life might “get back to normal.”
With a true black swan, nothing ever really gets back to normal...and I’m of the mind that we’re probably already past that point. (If you are in Australia, you are definitely waaay past that point.)
Yet, we haven’t seen the “worst” of it yet. Most of us are still able to make money, feed our families, and have roofs over our heads.
When I heard about Omicron, I wasn’t surprised. I’ve been expecting some sort of spike protein mutation for a while now, based on Geert Vanden Bossche’s many videos warning against vaccinating during a pandemic.
I have no doubt covid is real. I have friends who I trust who developed the proverbial “can’t taste my coffee” side effect. One of my friends is a guy who literally quit his job because he doesn’t believe in masks, so he’d be the most likely to believe covid isn’t real at all. But he had it for sure.
Modern science can easily sequence DNA, so the speculation that researchers couldn’t possibly map Omicron yet is just not realistic. Hell, Fauci and co. have actually patented a lot of the DNA involved (here is a must watch on the patents if you haven’t seen it yet).
Bottom line. Covid is a real thing and if a coronavirus is out in the wild, it’s going to mutate.
If covid has mutated to the point where there are now 30+ changes in the spike protein, it’s likely that the virus is mutating to evade the vaccines. This could be by design, but it also makes sense that the virus would naturally do this.
Loki Could Not Have Done a Better Job Screwing Everything Up
What’s my take on the “man behind the curtain”?
The people at the top likely expected a vaccine-evading variant. They probably knew all along and are waiting to make bank off of endless booster shots. (Read If There’s One Thing You Need to Read About Covid, This Is It for the reason why.) Pfizer and Moderna are already salivating about getting a new version of the vaccine out there.
On the other hand, they all seem a bit panicky to me. I wonder if many people in government and the media actually bought into the vaccine hype. I think some of them may actually be freaking out, because they didn’t expect the covid vaccines to fail this miserably...especially so soon.
Now, if we’re lucky, Omicron will be less deadly...and perhaps the vaccines won’t cause the immune system to produce only antibodies to the original spike protein. (Because if they did that, the vaccinated would not be able to fight off even a mild Omicron variant.) Let’s hope our worst-case fears over ADE1 will turn out to be unfounded. This would be the best news.
If we’re not lucky, Omicron could be more deadly...but perhaps more to the vaccinated. The original immunity they got from the vaccines would work against them, causing greater susceptibility to future variants.
This could be a real black swan event, if millions upon millions of people get a lot sicker than expected.
Let’s hope and pray it’s a nothingburger.
But with the Loki energy of chaos behind what’s going on...I don’t think the “Powers That Be” have as great a handle on all this as some people think they do.
They are not all powerful and all knowing.
They can screw up.
And they may have screwed us all with this one.
Time will tell.
