There is a thing called Carbon Chauvinism. It’s a term that describes the assumption that all life has to be carbon based as narrow minded. We do so, just because we don’t know any other life forms. Or do we know of non-carbon based life forms? I know there are silicon based life forms in Star Trek...
However, I wasn’t aware that it’s an actual ontological subject. Curios.
The current death rate is at almost 5%. If only 10% of the world population (~750000000) get it and the death rate stays the same, 37.5 mio people will die.
But 10% is not realistic and the death rates will go up when the health systems collapse. Italy is at over 10% at the moment.
It makes me upset that people ignore the math of it and also the dimension of its horror. it actually makes me so angry that I want to punch someone. But that is not a good idea. And even less so these days...
