I have looked into this theory (terrain) & it definitely has some great points in critiquing modern medicine & germ theory. So go for it. However that said, I’ve got a number of issues with it overall.
For example, I am not at all satisfied with their explanations of how disease & identical symptoms manifest within multiple people at the same time after being in close contact. I’ve asked some of these proponents these questions & I can’t seem to get answers that truly satisfy the argument. It sounds smart, lots of fancy jargon, but it has felt quite hollow to me thus far on SOME of my critiques. Other points have merit.
My own personal experience seeing things like staph infection spread through my gyms over the years, (which I’ve personally had a two year battle eradicating naturally & I live a very above average healthy lifestyle), my own observed experience in seeing the same symptoms of things like flu, Norwalk etc go through my home, my neighborhood & my dojo contradicts their claims in this regard.
Having children of your own or working in schools/daycares etc for any extended period of time will be evidence enough that illness does indeed spread from one to another & it can spread like wildfire.
My whole family/neighborhood got something really bad early feb of 2020 that mirrored the covid symptoms exactly. Everyone had the same symptoms. Some more intense than others, but the same overall. I know it mirrors flu, but this was different. The shortness of breath, weird cough, change in smell/taste & the intense body aches were very pronounced in everyone. We cured it naturally. We do not live in a location that has 5G towers yet. In fact I live in a remote place on the Pacific Ocean with the best air quality & tree density in world that has few cell towers at all.
Explain STD’s. I’ve never contracted these because I’m not a player, but I know many who have & their experience of how they contract these things contradicts the answers given on transmission of disease IMO. It just doesn’t add up.
Also, they do not factor in the observer effect when conducting scientific experiments. This is key.
Absence of evidence does not always automatically equate to evidence of absence. Think double slit experiment, the consciousness/observer effect etc. I am well aware this point can be used on both sides of this argument. That alone is an interesting study in itself that would help clear alot of this up.
I really do like the proposed solution to overall health from the viruses don’t exist people, so on that we can absolutely agree. Health is an inside job, we are indeed energetic/spiritual beings, drugs & surgery cause more harm than good. Agreed. However we are also physical beings. I get the sense that one side, the materialist side of this (germ theory) are in one extreme of “everything is physical”, the other side (terrain theory, viruses don’t exist) are in another extreme: it’s ALL only about spirit & ethereal dimensions, nothing is physcial.
I personally think it’s a bit of both at play, being that we humans are both physical & spiritual.
The nonsense about how “bio-weapons don’t exist” is ridiculous IMO. On this I take a harder stance. Bio-weapons, be they “viruses” or “toxins” do in fact exist & have been used in many variations for centuries in warfare all over the world. It started with things like snake venoms, plant extracts etc, & evolved into very complex chemical compounds over time. This argument quickly devolves into semantics & both sides throw the baby out with the bath water.
I have a few friends in this field in the military, there are whole schools of bioweapons research & mitigation strategy training. Just talk to veterans from the vietnam, gulf wars, or iraq/afghanistan wars. Heck even WW2 vets will tell you about it. In fact, Dr Zev Zlenko has recently proposed that virtually all flu strains are synthetically created bioweapons for the purpose of keeping the pharma industry in the profit margins.
I would suggest there are both natural “flu’s” due to ill-health & seasonal changes, vitamin/mineral deficiancy etc, & then there are also many synthetcially created biolgical agents that can indeed spread from one human to another when in close contact. If they couldn’t, bio-warfare wouldn’t be strategy worth investing in by virtually every regime or conquerer in known history.
The other turn off for me is that this “viruses don’t exist” movement appears more & more to me to be very similar to the flat earth movement in it’s overall approach & worldview (ie gnosticism). The proponents of both of these theories end up attacking & shaming anyone who does not take their whole theory on board.
Massive red flag for me.
From both camps, FE/TT, they slander anyone who does not hold their view as being “shills” or “disinfo agents” (I have experienced this personally) & have spread faster than any virus could, creating massive confltcs in the freedom movements rather than encourginig unifying paradigms of thought. Might just boil down to a maturity thing in it’s main champion advocates & ideologues, but it is true nontheless.
They often haunt chats & forums starting fights in the chat & dropping their comments onto posts that are not even talking about these subjects in order to push their view. The zeal at which they push this is a bit too desperate for me & smacks of toxic religion. So even if true or valid as a theory, the overall approach & tactics used to garner support are highly suspect to me of a cult-like mentality & ends up creating more closed-mindedness rather than open-mindedness & paralyses intelligent discourse or theoretical proposal.
In the end, when I see two completely polar opposite positions creating division like this, it means both are missing something & are most likely both incorrect overall. When I see emotionally charged, dogmatic thinking on both sides, I know everything I need to know.
I think there is also a satisfactory & comforting feeling generated for some people with these new trendy movements that help them feel like they have access to special knowledge nobody else has, and never forget the fact that many scientists and authors are competeing for market share and popularity. Being edgy and confrontational is a quick startegy to achieving a following and everyone knows it.
Another thing ignored by these kinds of “white-board” types, is psychology. When factored into the overall equation, much can be understood and explained.
That’s just where I’m at right now after seeing this kind of stuff come and go in the alternative research community for years. They all have the same blueprint and appeal regardless of the specific subject.
I encourage everyone to do their own research on this, avoid emotional attachments to these things & make up your own minds on the matter while continuing to seek out the truth as you get exposed to new information.
“We view the world through the lense of the self.”
The responses to my statement here will be quite enlightening I’m sure.
