How interesting it is to go back and read a diary from October of 2020.
In the meantime, many things have happened!
First, the Republic of Cyprus, when you use the analogy of population, became the world recorder in concluding daily rapid tests. With slightly more than 870000 inhabitants, the Cyprus Republic on the 9th of May completed 109846 rapid tests. The Government of the Republic of Cyprus spent nearly 30000000(thirty million euros) for the rapid tests without building any new hospital beds for treating Covid-19 patients. Interestingly, the positive results were 269( two hundred sixty-nine) or 0.24% of the total number of the tested people.
Common sense says that this is a great success of the Republic of Cyprus Government fighting such a deadly disease. Now that the measures have been proved right, and with already 30 million euros spent on the rapid tests, the Republic of Cyprus Government might decide to change how the tests are done and demand the test from the people who have symptoms only(high temperature). As all the other countries are doing, except a few.
It looks like that making so many tests will not be sustainable for the budget of the Republic hit by economic decline and many cases of alleged corruption. That is why yesterday’s results and, hopefully, coming days results will make the great Cypriot Scientists decide to abandon such massive tests with tremendous cost to the Cypriot population.
At the same time, the Republic of Cyprus has introduced firstly called “Corona Pass,” and then renamed it to “Safe Pass,” allowing people with tests, vaccination of the first dose, and recently recovered from the Covid-19 infectious disease, to visit specific places. Those without any of the three mentioned are not allowed to do so. The Great Minds of Scientists have decided to use such a beautiful, human name for the pass! “SAFE PASS!” Forward-thinking of such great Scientists, thinking that they are playing with the population, as after Corona and massive vaccination, “Safe Pass” will be staying in our lives contributing, as those minds are thinking, to our safety.
We salute all those minds thinking of and contributing to general population safety. As we all should make them a tribute and thank them from the bottom of our population hearts, they should let us know who they are to receive our utmost gratitude.
Furthermore, there is confirmation after confirmation that passes of many kinds are being developed to stay in the population and get the place in the minds of young people. Like new fashion! Modern! Cool!
It is up to us to decide what is cool and modern and good? Or maybe it is not, and we need to follow what others let us.
Below philosophyofgoodnews and Darko Richard Lancelot said that there is no way back as instructions are received ….
We are not happy that we were right! We do not want to be right!
We want from the bottom of the human soul to be very wrong!

Diary continues as it is a way to share thoughts and feelings with a friend who never complains. It used to be blank paper, and now it is a kind of relative-computer blank screen.
After complete lockdown, partial lockdowns are coming into our lives.
There is no way back. Instructions are received, and now we are at the stage of practical application.
It is to sustain epidemics. It is to limit the virus—marketing at its best. To get people’s fear up and reasoning down. Organized by nonelected forced to elected. Words are nicely wrapped to cause confinement and confusion. Behind all is knowledge or cognition that stars have a tremendous influence on us! When Euclid was writing his Geometry, where was he looking for inspiration? Down or up? What is up? When Nikola Tesla was growing up in his village of Smiljan, where was he looking to? One great lady wrote a book about that called “Star Counters.”
Stars! Look at the stars! Instead of watching the news, use that time to just simply look at the stars! Then do not sustain your feelings! Let them grow and inspire you! Do not forget to thoroughly wash your hands. Some Vitamin D can be of help. At least the French National Academy of Medicine says some of it.
The word Sustainability or better, term Sustainable Development was introduced in 1987! It was mentioned in the UN report OUR COMMON FUTURE or Brundtland Report named by Gro Harlem Brundtland. She was a Prime Minister of Norway three times and then Director-General of the world health organization from 1998 till 2003, and VP of the World Socialist Party. The first official mentioning of Sustainability was introduced in 1992 in the document called UN sustainable development agenda 21! Today is simply known as Agenda 21! However, many are using the word Sustainability as a necessity! Come on!
To sustain is to limit! To limit is to exclude! To exclude is to diminish! Is it that what, between the lines, is all this about?
That idea of diminishing started many years ago when some thought they have the right to decide what the Earth will look like and how many of us should live in it.
How has this happened, and we are trapped?
Let’s ask ourselves where we were in 1987, 1992, etc.? It is not a blame game, but an understanding one!
Today some human beings tend to accuse other human beings that we are worst than animals and not worth the Earth we live in, and many more! Those that are accusing, who are they?! They are also part of us! Those that are making plans on how to destroy FAMILY VALUES are also part of us. It would be for a laugh if it was not for tears! And just ask yourself, why is this all happening? Could it be to, first of all, introduce the worm of doubt, sneaking suspicion, into human relations! Divide and Rule! Simple it is! So on the side of the divide, there are many tools! Fear is one of the main!
We have our concerns about making families, having kids, the right job to make our future to the best of our ability! With all those bad news, with all those fear projected, we are still giving a hand to those in need. That is the consciousness being alive, and well, even that in some of us is stored deep, very deep in our soul.
We are under attack! Our souls are under attack! By the same concept that introduced the word Sustainability and made so many presentations and propaganda about it! Men against the man! Humans against humans! Again injecting uncertainty, fear for existence! With fellow humans to blame only. Your neighbors, family and relatives? Will we come to the senses?
Did we trust, and are we trusting our elected officials? Are they used by other interests? Those of nonelected people? If yes, they need to find the strength to lead, again! We will be with them!
We just want to live our lives in peace! To pass through this Earth as better as possible, leaving our most precious achievements to contribute more to the better of general goodness and advance of mankind! We brought up our children! Our children! We dream of becoming grandparents! We dreamed about celebrating 50 years of successful marriage or partnership with our wife or husband. We still do! That is called building, continuous building for the future!
Some of us are trying to program our lives in the system that was not, still, in the boiling water stage, some sleepwalking and enjoying life, thinking that all that will last forever. “Time makes more converts than a reason!” Thomas Paine said! Common sense is the title of the pamphlet.
We were played to live for today only! Forgetting our past and being lazy to build our future! We let others plan about our and our kids, kids, kid’s future! That minority organized such underhanded, sneaky policies like PPP( Public-Private Partnership with tax breaks to implement Sustainability!). They also understood that their THE TIME IS RUNNING OUT, and they proceed with remarkable speed! But people are awakening everywhere. Even WHO, World Health Organisation is pouring the water into the wine by WHO envoy Dr. David Nabarro telling The Spectator that “We really do appeal to all world leaders: stop using lockdown as your primary control method.”
Till those they call themselves leaders, influencers were being rented by a minority to impose their will on the majority, we were swimming in the lukewarm water, and we liked it as the frog likes it! To repeat the story of the frog! A very true one. When you put the frog in the boiled water, it will jump out of it immediately! But if you put it in lukewarm water, it will swim with pleasure and will not notice that the pot is placed on fire as the warmth will increase gradually. The frog will enjoy the heat so much until it has been cooked!
Small detail we did not take into consideration as it was a pleasure at the time to swim and enjoy! Small piece but crucial! Those little things define everything!
Other details are also developing! Science gives other explanations than before, while lockdowns are forced over people, forbidding us with the air we breathe. Or just making a habit of wearing masks. In this stage, everything is possible as the trust is approaching very low levels.
Twiter from Jordan Schachtel @JordanSchachtel Oct 12
“CDC: 85% of COVID-19 patients report ‘always’ or ‘often’ wearing a mask”.
So, the “science” argument is slowly going to an end!
What is to stay?
There is no free lunch!
