What The Coronavirus Can Teach Us About Ideas and Narratives

(warning: this article is a little longer than usual-it’s a big topic) Shamans know that everything in this collective virtual reality is nothing more than manifested concepts or ideas that were born out of curiosity throughout the ages. We could even go so far as to say that curiosity is…
