Dominion over contagious disease

The outbreak of a contagious disease can have an effect similar to what happens when a flight controller suddenly sees something unexpected and perhaps potentially dangerous on his radar screen. Warnings go out immediately. Authorities are notified. Word spreads quickly as to what's been identified and what precautions to take.

We can learn a lot by watching the currents and quality of thought associated with reports of contagious disease. Whether in the form of official advisories, news stories, or conversation among friends or family, those currents are often swift and disturbing. They certainly show the need to be watchful as to what's influencing our own thoughts and actions.
