Thoughts of streamlining the gene pool come to mind...
The people dying are old people. We have too many of those and that is
a problem, bed blockers, use resources of the NHS etc. B suggested the
virus was released to solve this....
Perhaps God is threatening us if we dont solve Climate Change and
destroy His work.
I am reminded of the "Game of Life" which I think I first met as a pencil
and graph-paper thing, probably from New Scientist.
It was preinstalled on our first computer and I subsequently typed in the
code to run it on another one.
You seed your block of squares with people (dots).
Any dot with 0 or 1 immediately adjacent neighbours dies from isolation
Any dot with 4 or more immediately adjacent neighbours dies of overcrowding
Any square with 3 immediately adjacent neighbours gains a dot
So any dot with 2 or 3 neighbours stays alive.
Depending on the original set-up the patterns move and change across the
paper (screen) with each generation or stay in the same place 'blinking' in
And then there was Sprouts... which I'm not going to remind myself about
now because I have things to do.
