Everything Has a Cycle – Even the Coronavirus

Professor Yitzhak Ben Israel of Tel Aviv University has plotted the growth rates of new coronavirus infections of the U.S., U.K., Sweden, Italy, Israel, Switzerland, France, Germany, and Spain. What he has revealed is what Socrates had forecast with the peak coming the week of April 6. The professor found that irrespective of whether the country quarantined like Israel, or did not lockdown its citizens like Sweden, the coronavirus still peaked and subsided in the exact same way and time duration. He has shown that all countries experienced identical infection patterns, with the number of infected peaking in the sixth week and rapidly subsiding by the eighth week. It was cyclical as all viruses have been. He wrote, “There is a decline in the number of infections even [in countries] without closures, and it is similar to the countries with closures.”

While Professor Yitzhak Ben Israel concluded he did not have any  explanation as to why the coronavirus follows a fixed pattern, he speculated that perhaps it was “climate-related, maybe the virus has its own life cycle.”

We have put the course of such viruses into Socrates which specializes in looking for patterns. Viruses are a form of biological lifeform. They too have a cycle as we do — we are born, we live, and we die. Everything in nature has such a pattern including planets and stars. Perhaps it is time we simply recognize that cycles exist. That just might be a place to begin our search for knowledge.
