It may seem that Hoyle and Wickramasinghe’s idea went nowhere, but don’t be so sure. As Chandra noted in the previous communication concerning Avi Loeb’s “Claim Jump,” the new decade promises quick advances and increased acceptance of he and Fred Hoyle’s once-heretical “Panspermia” hypothesis (see, spell check even recognizes the term).
Viruses, to Hoyle, Wickramasinghe, and their hardy band of fellow travelers, rain constantly down through our atmosphere and provide the source of epidemic and pandemic disease, as well as genetic contributions. For a wonderful and profound paper concerning effects of genetic rain from space for life on earth, read Steele et al. (2018) here.
While this idea is controversial to the point of censorship, I am hopeful that N.C. Wickramasinghe may indeed have his note published by the Lancet, just as this one was in 2003 concerning SARS.
Another Tusk buddy Mike Baillie approaches the horrifying subject in a different manner, using myth and trees rings in his book, “New Light on the Black Death“, which is surely the most horrifying non-fiction I have ever encountered.
I have followed the subject for years and there is good reason to suspect a cosmic vector for Coronavirus. I appreciate Chandra sharing these important communications exclusively with the Tusk, and Graham for spreading the news more widely. Please post this terrifyingly timely information on your socials — and perhaps it will go viral.
