Will the internet go down? Will that obnoxious black rectangle in your pocket go quiet? Is it necessary there be darkness so the light comes on, clearer and brighter than before?
Or will the virus kill you? Or the flu? Or slipping in the shower tomorrow morning? Guess which is most likely.
Will the economy reset? Will trillions in pilfered stash from cartels and corrupt elites pay our debts? And will my crypto-hodle make me rich? (Shit, I hope so.)
I hope we see 10 cent coffee again. Maybe even the wars end, and we can all just be friends.
Certainly, the storm is now upon us. Will Orange God-Emperor save us? Did Moses split the sea?
Passover marks the release of Jews from slavery in Egypt. Slavery was ended by a series of plagues – the final one being the Passover, when for three days Jews sheltered inside and painted their doors with lamb’s blood. A plague, three days of darkness, and slavery ended.
“Stretch out your hand toward the sky so that darkness will spread over Egypt—darkness that can be felt.” So Moses stretched out his hand toward the sky, and total darkness covered all Egypt for three days. No one could see anyone else or leave his place for three days. — Exodus 10:21–23
And the first born of the Egyptians perished:
“There will be loud wailing throughout Egypt—worse than there has ever been or ever will be again.” — Exodus 11:4–6
When the Jews celebrate Passover, it’s date is set for the vernal equinox after the spring crop has come fruitful. This year, we know there is corn ready for to be cut. The full moon will mark the equinox on April 7.
It’s been said many times… history repeats itself.
