Older readers will remember the 1959 television series The Twilight Zone. Each episode began with the voice of the series creator, Rod Serling:
“There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man.
It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity.
It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition…”
A few years later came The Outer Limits created by Leslie Stevens. It began:
“There is nothing wrong with your television set.
Do not attempt to adjust the picture…
For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear…”
Both series explored many mind-bending scenarios but few so bizarre as the one we’re all living through right now. After all, who would believe it?
Would people globally really obey senseless government rules including, de-humanising muzzle-wearing, germophobic sanitising, anti-social distancing and absurd “elbow bumping”?
Would governments really get away with locking down homes, offices, businesses, industries and schools, destroying national economies, jobs, livelihoods and lives for a disease that their own official data shows is nowhere near as dangerous as their fear-mongering would have us believe?
Would governments worldwide focus enormous resources on one alleged health threat to the detriment of all others, designating life saving screenings, treatments and surgeries “non-essential”.
Would mainstream media worldwide eagerly, endlessly and coincidentally propagate the same fear invoking narrative with images of the evil spiked corona everywhere and floating ominously in the background of every “News Alert”?
Would reporters, news anchors, politicians and health officials globally and coincidentally use identical fear inducing words such as “infections”, “cases”, “outbreaks”, “clusters, “super spreaders” and “dangerous variants”.
And for those asking uncomfortable questions, would the mainstream media politicians and health officials globally and coincidentally label them with identical vilifying terms, such as “Covid denier” and “lockdown denialist” — and of course, that old favorite: “conspiracy theorist”?
Would the majority of doctors and nurses knowingly go along with all of this without speaking up?
Would parents allow their children, who are at almost zero risk, to be muzzled and terrorised into believing they will die or cause a loved one to die if they cuddle, hug or get too close?
Would all of this be justified by the number of “positive cases” discovered by incessant testing of people implored to line up “even with the slightest (cold) symptoms”?
Would anyone have confidence in the “positive cases” discovered by a PCR test that finds a fragment of RNA that is presumed to be part a virus of which an isolated, purified sample does not exist?
Would testing labs worldwide follow World Health Organisation PCR test recommendations of 40 amplification cycles when it is well known that any more than 35 cycles will produce meaningless results. And even 35 cycles will produce up to 95% false positives?
Would people believe influenza had really disappeared due to Covid-19 restrictions while Covid-19 had not?
Would people eagerly roll up their sleeves for experimental mRNA Covid-19 gene manipulation procedures deceptively promoted as vaccinations?
Can anyone seriously believe it’s not all fraudulent, ridiculous and insane?
No doubt, even Serling and Stevens would have thought events of the last year to be beyond belief.
We truly have reached the Outer Limits of the Twilight Zone.
