"It's uses symbol myth archetype dream images and so forth to convey to us what our adult ego form is. So i've had several selling counters in my life but my the first one is always the most profound one for everybody and my first one was at on my fourth day of my first vision fast in which Long story incredibly briefly. The i had a conversation with a spruce tree that had become a zen monk by the fourth day and It introduced me to butterfly that a literal physical butterfly that flew towards me. Brush the left side of my face went by. And i heard in english the butterfly saying cocoon weaver. So this was I had no idea what happened to me in the moment but This idea of weaving cocoons. It became clear to me. This was an image by my first myth poetic image. That would help me understand when i was born to do but i want to emphasize here that a sullen kunr is not primarily information. Said like you get. I got this information. Okay bill what you need to go out into the world and weave cocoons. Whatever that means like the tablets come back with tablets with written written text on them. Yeah i had some written text but yeah but the what assoc counter primarily does is like being struck by lightning in his starts some l. chemical process in which our egos start getting shape shifted. And that's the fourth phase. The phase called metamorphosis. And that's when the solid counter the vision starts doing its work on our ego and it takes for most people several months where the adolescent ego is reached fashioned reshaped into an adult ego just like for the caterpillar awhile to go from caterpillar soup to a butterfly body and those imaginable cells. Turn out to the architects and they can take the recyclable materials of caterpillar of a former caterpillar. and turn it into a completely different creature with wings that's phase for metamorphosis and then the fifth phase for the caterpillar cocoon breaks open or the butterfly. Moth breaks out of the corner of the christmas. And it can't fly at its wings are so new. They can't fly so it just sits on a branch where the cocoon had been and it has to pump fluid through those new wings and then it has to slowly start to flap them and learn how to fly wings and only then can it fly so the fifth phase for humans. We call enactment when a person who's gone through their ego has gone through. A metamorphosis begins to show up in the world as their mithra poetic identity. But this is even before they're capable of serving anybody or bringing the gift to the world so that's the next face and then sometime after that a person is thrown by mystery from the cocoon into the first stage of adulthood which i call the soul apprentice at the wellspring. And that's when we look for summoned to study with to learn a delivery system that will be an effective way to embody their mitha poetic identity for me. It was To lead teachers. Stephen foster and meredith little of the school of law supporters in california. Who have been for some years. Reintroducing.

"This episode is like no other. Bill is one of the most genius and inspired visionaries. That you've probably never heard of. He's the author of a few books that have been rocking my world. The last few years notably nature and the human soul and now his latest book the journey of soul initiation a field guide for visionaries evolutionary and revolutionaries and. I'm serious wanna say listen up. This may be the most important podcast episode. I ever create. I love all my guests and what particularly excites me about bill. Plotkin is that. When i first read his book nature and the human soul. I felt like what the israelites must've felt like. When moses came back from mount sinai with the ten commandments. Bill is brought back. Commandments of any sort but through his works spanning probably five decades now as a depth psychologist wilderness guide and founder of western colorado's any must valley institute where he led thousands of women and men through nature based initiate tori passages. What he has brought back is a map of human development that i believed to be as all encompassing as any map modern day humanity has discovered building on carl jung's work and the work of countless other brilliant hearts and minds spanning a myriad of human cultures all over the world. When i read bills work our. I should say when i read bills work i understand more clearly the adventure of my own life. The story arcs that of played out over years. The excruciating bottoms. I've hit at critical pivotal moments of my life and what the real tasks of the different stages of life are that. if. I don't accomplish those tasks then i don't truly grow or evolve. Even though my body may age in fact this is one of the major themes that throughout bills work. Which i assure you is a master work. His books are just masterpieces of wisdom and insight impractical information but a major theme he explores and that we talk about in. This episode is the overwhelming lack of true adults in the modern world. The state of humanity is one currently made up of Largely of people stuck in adolescent ways of thinking being doing it certainly not hard to make the case for that these days. Just read the news or scroll through your social media feed. You may not be able to quite put a finger on it but something constantly nags it you that the world around you is largely devoid of real wisdom and nuance and maturity bills Bills bill masterfully explains.

GameStop Stock Soars as Reddit Investors Take On Wall Street Bets
"Stop the video game retailer. Stock has rallied over six hundred eighty percent this month and in the last couple of days the stocks volatility has pretty much everyone talking. So what's going on. First of all game stop is for the average mall going consumer dying brand a relic of simpler times when we used to have to physically go to the store and wait in line for the newest call of duty or for the latest harry potter book. So it's no surprise. That game stop has been a target for wall street shortsellers its demise has been foregone conclusion. So short and game stop. That is betting that game stop would continue to. Depreciate could have been a good bet except short-selling is risky and your losses if you lose that bad or basically limitless since there's no cap on how valuable the company has bet against could become so even riskier if stock you've shorted starts going up. You can essentially cut your losses without getting too in the weeds market mechanics here. When a lot of short seller's designed to cut their losses on a shorted stock. That's now suddenly going up it triggers. What's called a short squeeze. Demand goes up. Supply goes down. Price goes up more shortsellers. Try to cut their losses. It's a vicious cycle and one that can result in massive losses for their shortsellers and giant prophets for those who've invested in the stock on the way up which is when a popular reddit. Forum called wall street bets figured out that game stop was the most shorted stock in the us markets. It wasn't hard to convince reddit users in the forum to buy up enough stock in game. Stop to trigger that short squeeze making retail investors of bundle and sticking it to the wall street big guys in the process. This was all encouraged in many ways by high profile investors with a hefty social media presence. Jamaa only petia tweeted that he'd bet on the stock increasing himself cameron winkle voss of the winkle vi- suggested he might go along on the stock and must only tweeted that he was aware of the situation just aware of the situation in game.

Street have accumulated over five billion dollars in losses year to date and that includes nine hundred million loss on monday and one point six billion lost on friday. As you're about to hear hedge fund. Melvin capital took an enormous loss on the bet so much so that rumors of bankruptcy were swirling on that wall street. Bet sub reddit. But the founder of melvin told our own andrew ross sorkin. The rumors aren't true. Here's andrew now some breaking news this morning on this game stop story. We've been reporting all morning. Having talked to gay. Plock into runs. Melvin capital gay. Plotkin saying that. Melvin capital has been out closed out its position in the stock force. That company was Firm i should say with short looks like lost a ton of money but short that company up through Before the end of the close yesterday but Gabe saying that They got out yesterday afternoon. Of course the question is what happens now. Game stop a game. Stop shares Melvin capital had to take in an additional close to three billion dollars in new capital citadel. Coming to the rescue along with point seventy two. This is a remarkable saga With game stop so many of these investors no really no longer really investing on the fundamentals of what's happening against up but more just continue to push up the stock and we've seen so many folks like you on musk. Go take to twitter about it. Chihua- polly fanning the flames. So there's a lot of fan fan. Flame fanning taking place right now big questions about regulators where they are what they should be doing a lot of criticism and critique online as saying that if you think manipulation what do you think wall street is doing everyday to us the retail investors so. There's a sort of a pop psychology dynamic at play. And i think we're all we're all learning and try and understand what it means but also what it means in the future for the ability of retail investors to get together on places like read it and other places Form an army of sorts and try to push up The stocks in in certain cases like this. So i'm at a loss for words. Joe i really am where are the regulators and is this just the beginning situation. We all do have a lot to say on this but you you obviously have a lot to san. That's interesting but obviously the plane with the calls. And you're you're seeing calls that are one hundred dollars out of the money going for nineteen dollars and things that you've got markups going from two billion to twenty five billion. Obviously everything you're saying we understand. This is this is a game obviously and these guys. When i put five dollars on a ncaa game that. I don't care that much about that's the same as jemaah putting a couple of hundred grand on some calls or lan or any of the guys were talking about this. I think it's kind of responsible. The kind of laughing about it laughing all the way to the bank. But you know there are market makers that have to take. How'd you like to be short some of these calls. Can you imagine being short some of these calls. Especially if you're not covering i mean you can lose. You can lose ten times your money. Unlike a regular investment where only lose one hundred percent. I mean this this this makes this makes bitcoin look like t-bills if you think there's speculation and crypto when you when you look at something like and now they're looking for the next mark right they'll find another game stop once they're done with game stop but in the meantime there's gonna be blood all over understand why i understand why elon musk is doing it. He hates the shorts. They've you know he's right. Thinks it's a game where he's playing a game to understand he's playing the game too. I don't understand why tomatoes doing this. I don't understand why the winkle loss guys doing this. I mean this is i. It's nothing about me. Said too much money it and if you if you think people look unkindly at the wealthy at this point like wait till you see what happens with with the retail investor who gets sucked into thing and gets caught in the trap with who can't afford to lose the money like these guys are doing. I'll tell you the thing there. There really is a merry band of retail investors. Out there both already but increasingly and this is what i think even more concerning i spent a lotta time night reporting this out but also spending time on the in some of these rooms there are places people are going out into encrypted rooms onto telegram onto signal where they where they effectively are planning their next raid. Where they're trying to look to say. Okay where can we do. You know who can we take down next. In this case it was capital that they were seeking to take down. That's why i think the news today that they're out maybe potentially a turning point. I don't know. I don't. I don't know what turns this stock back into some kind of a normal

Forum don't have a lot of the nation they don't heal well on their own if you injure them a certain way and I went to the doctor went to the masseuse same story as I mentioned earlier with my foot, it just didn't get better and I went to the shame in me looked at it and he said, and it's going to take some time. So I spent a month there. I mean I was doing other things but the first thing he did was give me plants as an a a topical. He rubbed them on a lot of massage. gave me a drink. So it was internal as well, and then he said, okay, here's the problem. You have a bad relationship buried in that muscle. That's why your doctors can't heal it my ken. So I am going to chant and I'm going to remove those emotions. Because it'll just come back. So he did the chanting did the massage had drank the potion? Any said now here's the problem. would. Western medicine doesn't understand is when you have a bad injury, things will come back and attack that space. So some people. When they're nervous get stomach aches or or they get pimples or they can't sleep. He says when I need to do is put a Chamonix Patch over where the wound was as no more wound enough healed it. But I'm GonNa, put a patch so it never comes back. So when you have stress or when you're injured, it doesn't start hurting again. About thirteen years ago I'm still fine. That's an explanation and approach to healing which I've never heard from any physician and frankly I've never for many other shame but you know what my arm doesn't hurt. So many interesting questions I, love interesting questions you know I just WanNa make a quick side note because I realized I didn't answer it earlier I didn't explain it. You said Liana. Earlier that is. A VINE OR A. Wooden. Climbing plant that hangs from trees selling is divine would tarzan used to swing on it's what Iowa's goes. Yeah. Quite a cross section two. Beautiful looking beautiful looking vine. Not. So delicious looks better than a tastes. And you said, you had some closing comments. Recently. I was talking to a fellow trying to get some support for fighting cove in nineteen amongst the engines. People's the Amazon act would stand for I said. Get you done. That doesn't match. The acronym said his Amazon Conservation Team you WANNA mission statement. I. Got a mission statement. The point is we're in about accomplishing the goals partnering with peoples to protect their culture and their forest and the challenges never been greater in the age of Kovac Nineteen. Point being that Western medicine doesn't have all the answers. We don't have a cure for covid nineteen. We don't have a cure for coronavirus neither do they. But what we're able to do is bring to bear western knowledge and abilities and sanitation and technology like to the new dashboard to keep track of this and try and devise the means to keep it at bay as much as possible. The Future of conservation the future of the rainforest that future of into people's in my opinion isn't about microchip of versus the medicine man, it's both of them working. Together. It's about building bridges and building alliances in coming up with a new way of doing things a new way of living our lives, a new way of stewarding nature, and it takes boundary walkers whether it's the shame who come out of the rain forest to enlighten us with their wisdom or guys like you may who've announced the rainforest learn from them or people that have feet in different worlds or people are just opened to hearing other realities. Other modalities willing to try medicines are chanting frogs lime when Western medicine wasn't able to do the trick. So whether it is black lives matter whether is it about saving the rainforest? All of these cries should feed productively into a more positive place for all of us because conservation is not just about saving the rainforest conservation is not just about saving the Indians conservation is about saving ourselves as well. Mark we talk for many many more hours I hope to be that in person me too and this has been. Just a thoroughly enjoyable conversation and I really appreciate you taking the time I.

Well, this'll be this'll be round one, and hopefully we'll get around to set up in person might be at a socially appropriate distance. But td on that front and so many more questions. But I'll let those sit for now and thank you once again and to everyone listening be safe keep your mind open and if you can support if you have found benefit from the plants, the compounds that were describing I feel like it is at least for me a moral imperative and quite frankly it's also an existential imperative if you are consuming these plants for the compounds themselves to support these geographies these.

That is to go to Amazon team dot org and see what opportunities exist doesn't need to be a lot of money. No, there are a lot of different causes.

Science, Economics And Vaccines
"Dr Stanley Plotkin develop vaccines for some of the world's deadliest modern viruses. He's very familiar with the cost and the process of producing vaccines, and he says the process tends to be slow and ferry expensive developing vaccine is likely to cause something on the order of five hundred, million dollars five hundred, million dollars status is today's indicator five, hundred million dollars to get a vaccine Stanley, says. For drug companies and universities and labs that monumental cost is often one of the biggest obstacles to creating vaccine after all at the end of the process, you don't know if you ever will actually debt vaccine some viruses like HIV still don't have successful vaccines even after decades of trying and billions of dollars invested if covid nineteen vaccine can't be found or if it takes decades the social. Economic and cultural impacts would be devastating. So the White House has done something pretty unheard of it's created a plan called operation warp speed to try to speed up the vaccine process. The White House says it's already invested more than twelve billion dollars in the plan and how the plan works. The White House is basically created contracts with drug companies like Pfizer Novak's Moderna Therapeutics and AstraZeneca. Few others and those contracts promise these companies billions of dollars if they can get a vaccine ready to go and have a hundred million doses at the ready by the first part of next year with so much money being funneled toward the problem I'm wondering if that will do you think speed up the process of getting a vaccine or does it just take the time it takes or? It definitely speeds things up. Stanley says with a strong cash incentive like this and so much support companies can out a bunch of different tactics in their search for a vaccine. He says, there are more than a hundred different approaches that scientists know of, and they can try a bunch of them labs all over the world flooded with resources racing for vaccine that should help speed up the arrival of the vaccine at least that is the hope but that is as yet. a hope. Nothing nothing is certain is certain. if everything goes well. I think having a vaccine by the end of the year is not impossible, but it's based on everything going. Well, Stanley says even with all the money in the world getting a vaccine ready for the public quickly is really hard. The Rubella vaccine that he developed was a relatively quick process in terms of vaccines. It took him about two years to discover it to develop the vaccine itself, and then five years to tested and scale up the production of IT and just get to the market, and here's why for one thing it's a messy process. You have a biological problem It's a complicated process and there isn't any single wave. Doing that also, he says there are parts of the process that you cannot speed up no matter how much money you have Stanley says trials for vaccines for instance, typically take longer than trials for regular drugs because vaccines will be used on much larger swath of the population. So you have to test the vaccine on all different kinds of people, different ages, ethnicities, people with different underlying health conditions, and that typically means trials involving tens of thousands of people. Also, you have to give the vaccine time to work time to assess side effects. Many vaccines fail in this trial phase, and there is a danger in going too fast of course the. is to avoid making mistakes. While you're speeding up mistakes and research or in manufacturing the vaccine or in not taking enough time to test these things can have. Consequences he says in the nineteen fifties, some batches of the polio vaccine created the contained an active virus the samples at past the safety tests yet thousands of people contracted polio from the vaccine dozens of people were paralyzed as a result Stanley says rushing vaccine is a balancing act between good science and good economics in you you yourself are working on a vaccine is that correct? Well, I know lawyer you know I'm I'm eighty eight years old I? No longer have a laboratory but I'm giving advice left and right so. I'm working in the a sense of giving advice. What kind of advice are you giving? What questions do people have at this stage which? Are Important what have you and responses one should be trying to get. What dosage? Interval between doses I mean the things that one learns with any vaccine. Are you taking dozens of calls like a week. I see why you have very limited time. I. Should let you go but I can't thank you enough for taking some of your precious time to talk with me. By by by conversation is over I, mean I would be hurt but like the man has lives to save, right? Oh. Yeah Oh. Yeah. Impressive Dude. Also fun fact Cardiff. He learned to fly a plane when he was seventy four and you don't do that kind of thing by spending all your time talking to journalists.

It's not your typical business meeting and sometimes you forget. Right that's a good point. Now, with these names that you will you've grown and evolved, you've grown evolved your client list fairly significantly, and as you said, you have a lot of military and leadership speakers, which is awesome. But you also have rightly coattail Br Brian Prop Mike quick, Ranjan Gorski lots of really notable Philadelphia athletes. How did you evolve? That was just a matter of being in the room with Mike Quick in the naturally you run into and meet some other people or or is it something that you know evolves more naturally because you're just putting yourself where those people are going to be how do you develop that? Where do you start if you're trying to meet a particular individual? Honestly it's very organic. I've never never had the need to really search someone out I. Really enjoyed working with everyone when we started the company. So would you lay that groundwork and I have to say what? Memorable in the. Field is that? Athletes can very quickly detect when they're someone who wants to get to know them because of their wow factor. So someone who's a huge sports fan and they just want to be around an athlete I look at people as a good product. The I need to make sure that my hiring client is getting what they are hiring this person to do. So the fact that I. Probably come off a bit different than most of the people who want to get to know them that really stands out but I guess the biggest thing that makes me stand out is that here's the big secret. I'm not a sports fan. So I think that's what surprises us. Of course you're not going to be all a starstruck when you meet them right in that's going to help your situation. Yes, and So when you said before your question, what are some of the most embarrassing things among lack of knowledge of sports that would probably be with L. doubt is women meet someone and they're talking about the professional career I have to say I know but you do take the transparent approach right I hear that in your story that you're just GONNA walk up to them and say look I necessarily know how many touchdown catches you've had Mike quick or how many touch downs you've thrown around your ski but I'd love you as a figure on stage I love your stage presence and I'd love to represent US ed more or less your approach.

"Of the flyers and now focused more so on him peels and some of the other cannabis awareness programs who are some of the other people that you have as speakers aside from Ron Gorski Mike Quick. Riley Co Day those types of individuals. Sure I. I had to say two of the most exciting people that I've. WORKED WITH FOR FIFTEEN YEARS, one is new to our roster It's a wonderful speaker named John Foley. He's truly one of the most sought after international keynotes speakers at he's a former solo pilot of the native angels. He says, Stanford Grad Mba International Policy Masters as well, and is really the foremost Keno motivational speakers you could ever meet. We recently. Had the opportunity to sign agem errol joke teller to our roster who we are. So thrilled to be able to work with the Arrow. Is Not only a former navy seal. He is FBI counterterrorism expert. He is a leadership and process expert who's now gone into the private sector in we have now could a program together featuring John and errol so it's right now. So to be able to bring to people what do seal Angel Having Common, you know even though they're both graduates of US Naval Academy that's really wary ends and the leadership skills that they learned in their military experience but also they're both very. Well, versed in experience in passionate about speaking of wellness. So. Again, to be able to have wellness speakers that. Have such a heavy military background. It breaks the mold of what your traditional wellness program might sound like. That's pretty awesome. So what's one of the stories from your career, your seventeen year career of engaging with these public speakers, motivational speakers both a good one and a bad one that you've experienced. Oh Gosh. You, Don I'm very lucky. There's a lot of things that appreciative unlucky of while one is if people want to be speakers in there, come from the sports, they're usually someone that is just inherently motivational They have a lot of gratitude. Appreciation. So just being able to connect with them bad makes what I do. Unbelievably, lucky Let's see what are some of the I guess. You don't recently about two years ago. I would say this is probably one of my favorite Stewart most recent favorite stories reverend herb lost in Philadelphia is the minister for the Philadelphia. Eagles and he hosts a large fundraiser each year for his nonprofit people to people and I walked into the room and I was not expecting to go to this abandoned was a last minute. Hey, you know there's which enjoy may there's a seat available? You WanNa come short. And I walked in the room. And all the sudden I ran into probably twelve of my clients from when I started Philadelphia Sports Group, and when I walked up and solvents polly who I had not seen it in a few years and he looked at me and he said you can start. And that is type of memory that I go. This is a really great job business. Why? After taking highest few years I came back to it because I've never stopped loving I do and I never stopped loving working with these clients. Think the deep. On embarrassing side was a at times not fully appreciate that when you walk into a restaurant with someone especially, if it's an active player, they have a stature, a presence that makes people take notice..

"Full transparency and what makes my agency unique in the industry is that we only represent people we know so. Started with my Larkin and then might quick, and as we bill every person that we represented, we sit down, we get to know them we find out what their strengths and weaknesses are as a speaker, and once you get a feel for who they are and you understand their stories. Then it's so exciting to able to help them find. Right Group to share that story. Very. Very cool. Okay. So now let's talk about experiential marketing and how you've overlapped that experience marketing is basically combining brands and experiences so that people can interact with the brand in the real world. So to speak right and now that's transitioned a bit online as well. But generally speaking that term means I l. in real life, right. So how do you go from representing individuals who have a public persona like athletes or like radio personnel or TV personnel and create an experiential marketing program around that? What would you do and and how did that develop? Sure. Well, you know treat home and Post Cova, nineteen. So March twenty, twenty, mid March twenty twenty, those are two very different answers to the same question. So in the past, just knowing where my speakers were the best fit, some do great with small groups. So it's really value added appearances maybe a dinner intimate dinner of ten people. Were you're spending time with an athlete who I know is going to be able to connect with the people at the table there's others that have a story. Great, you can put three thousand people in a room, give them a microphone and a spotlight and backs when they're going to shine. So right there being able to have that experience knowing what their energy is, what they're passionate that they speak upon and knowing how they connect with people and what type of groups they connect with. That alone isn't experience and as I've said, many times. We could be sharing a same story, but hearing it from someone who played in the NFL or NHL in when Stanley Cup is going to be completely different and more engaging than molly. PLOTKIN was to share that same story. Right, exactly. A lot of your public speakers are really really notable Philadelphians but also notable. Athletes.

Marketing Agency focused specifically on Athlete appearances and keynotes. How did you get your first client? Sure. Honestly, it's a very serendipitous story. It's one of those where you say you can't believe it's true but it is. At, the time I was helping someone in the finance industry with their marketing. Bottom line is we were thinking how do you think clients in way that different in will be that something unique I did something they can i? Came up with the idea unique. Areas. So experiential brand marketing is all the rage right now but go back fifteen, sixteen years ago. No one was really talking about that. So it was along those lines that while talking to this person, one of their clients was a huge sports fan. So at the time, I had met the wife of a local area sports caster and hit simply said to her who runs the agency that represents athletes. So in Philadelphia such sports town, where do we go if we're looking to connect with alumni athletes someone who? Maybe? A legend but they played twenty years ago. For private dinner something along the lines. She said there isn't one and I said, well, there should be. and. Honest to goodness the next day. I thought. Why not no one's doing it. This is the time. So she and I actually became business partners and we ran the company together for three years. How really started was I represented one person And it was Michael Barkin so I was representing Michael.

"Dr. Stanley Plotkin is one of the few people who has developed a vaccine when he led the effort in the 19 sixties to eradicate rubella. He is now professor emeritus of pediatrics at the Perlman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. I asked Dr Plotkin based on his experience developing rubella and other vaccines. What may be applicable to the search for the Corona virus vaccine. Well, probably the right answer is not much For a number of reasons. So one obviously is the urgency on DH. But second is the number of companies On biotechs trying to develop a vaccine. On the third point is that fortunately we have much more ways of developing vaccines then we did back in the 19 sixties. And that's why one sees today these numerous efforts to develop a vaccine because they were different strategies, different platforms as we call them. To develop vaccines. Does that give you some hope, at least hope that in fact, this might take less time than earlier vaccines have taken Well, A lot of us, of course, realised the urgency of developing a vaccine. Because just like the black plague Ah, this is destroying society, causing much. Besides immortality through the disease, it's it's having an effect on civil society that we haven't seen for atleast for 100 years. And as I said, resembling, in in a way, the plague So, yes, I think this is a new situation. And the what I'm happy about is that all hands are on deck. The vaccine community has really responded for this urgency there certain aspects of this development that simply cannot be rushed and particularly talking about sort of clinical trials in the field. As I understand it after initial trials with loaded number of people, then you have to go out. To a large number of people in various places. Well, that's true and for a licence. Ultimately, that will be necessary. That is for a licence vaccine where vaccines To be used indiscriminately That is to say in a ll kinds of different populations. That being said, Uh, I I and some others have been pushing for whether cool human challenge studies. To try to accelerate the availability of vaccines for emergency use. That would mean testing in people who are exposed to the virus. Teo determine whether or not the particular vaccines will protect or not, which, of course, is the critical question. In fact, as I understand it, doctor we don't really know. Even if people have had the disease and recovered from we're not sure if they have immunity. If so, how powerful is how long it will last That is correct. And that's another reason for testing people who have had the infection to determine if they are immune or not. Well, what about the international competition for that? Is this a healthy thing? We have AstraZeneca We've got. Johnson and Johnson. We've got many different candidates going here. Is that the way to develop this most effectively? Well, I think the answer is yes. Obviously there will be problems in the future if we are need to vaccinate. 7.5 1,000,000,000 people. On DH. If the vaccine let's say need to those whose instead of one that's something that's never been done before. So we really need on international agreements as tohave, a producer. That kind of volume of vaccines. Unfortunately, though, as I said, there are many different strategies being used, and I I hope I would anticipate that there will be more than one or two vaccines that are showing to protect and therefore It could be produced on a large scale, one of the raging issues. I think that's not an overstatement right now in the country is the return of school Children to classrooms. President Trump's certainly wants that at the same time, we have very school districts were very reluctant, or basically decided they'll go just remote. From what you know of this disease at this point. Is it safe? To send Children back in the classroom without a vaccine. I think it would be very unwise to do that, and the reasons are that Children can be infected. They can be made ill even though the rate is much lower. Then an older people, But in addition, they will infect other people, even particularly if they're asymptomatic. They will pass the virus between them. B that is from child child and Children going home to their parents will inevitably infect their parents or their grand parents. On it will just promote Thie epidemic promote the continuation of the epidemic. So I would not be in favor of that happening. One of the things that we may be seeing, and I say, may because it may be premature to say this Is a change in the mortality rate of people contracting this disease and that maybe because treatment's better whether it's from death, severe promenading people putting on their stomach and their chest. Things like that is the do you think the virus is changing? Are we changing our reaction to it? And should that give us some cause for hope? Even short of vaccine. I mean the evidence for virus change. Aside from a few mutations here and there a cz I would say really next, negligible it it. It doesn't appear that this is a virus like influenza that changes dramatically even during One winter season, so this virus is more stable genetically, So I don't think that's the issue. I think the issue is That physicians are better. Treating people with the disease managing.

Great to be with you wherever you are, Rick. You Fred first of all you call yourself a pleasure activist, I love that term, and it sort of reminding me of your passion for Opera Your Passion for Italy your passion for cooking, and all the lecturing and writing and work you do. Turn people under those joys of life. How was your life like right now in new? York City I'm in the thick of it. In terms of what the epicenter has been in New York. And my philosophy became at the very beginning better six feet apart than six feet under so I've been very very responsible as I encourage everyone to be if people can get to the plays in world, wars and pandemics, the vast. We need to learn from what people did. Or didn't do and that's sustenance to me to study the past at times like this. Because otherwise we feel abandoned. The past there to teach us, and so I've been reading I've been studying I've used the opportunity to begin to work on a book. I've been wanting to write for years, but haven't had the time. Time is a gift. We need to use it very very well, and I tried to. And I've been reminding myself and my friends that rather than spinner wheels and try to do something. We can't do during this period. Find a way to make it a constructive time and a blessing when you think about your passions opera for instance to me I am so saddened by the notion that one of the most dangerous things. This time is being acquire because the worst way to. To spread this virus is by singing with Gusto, making a joyous sound that depresses me frankly that choirs could be deadly now I have to see them in these checkerboards zoom world singing solo right now and you know I have many opera singer friends who are very dear friends of mine, and I feel for them terribly some of the managing and they sing, and they practice, and they steady new music, but others feel that without the sound of applause in the presence of colleagues. It's not their work and my feeling is always been that when we go into a feeder or church where people are seeing where. Action happens and air shared. Is that sharing of the air the electronic current that happens between humans? That's a huge part of. Our experience at alive theater as a communal setting and something that virtual technology just cannot replicate I never. An opera on the radio or on video and operates a report from an Opera House. But I'm not saying. These things are bad and right now I, certainly enjoying audio operas well but communal gathering. Is something fundamental. You talked about the sharing of air I never thought about that, but I've been thinking about it without knowing it. It's the sort of a communion of course when pastors are struggling with. How can we be together at church if you can't have the sharing of the peace or communion or fellowship or singing? There's no sharing of air and when you go to a pub, you want to share that air when you go to a theater when I give a lecture I want the house packed. It's the sharing of the air, and that's going to be an adjustment for us, and we can hope and pray it will come back, but in the interim we can be singing solo and doing it in a community kind of way. I. Suppose think of the word inspiration. That's where that comes from. It's about breathing together. We do breathe together. I I WANNA make a point to that New York City during the complete lockdown. was incredibly quiet and I heard birds and all kinds of things. I did normally here and frankly the air was much. Cleaner city has slowly begun to try to read self up again. The air is kidding dirtier. This is the place you're activists in me that I'm very sensitive to these things. And although I would not wish on anyone what we've been through nonetheless. I wish we could learn that. There are ways to keep the air cleaner
