Uh oh, it's magic!
Eugyppius, being an academic (and a genuinely decent guy from what I can tell), desperately wants to believe that academia, science (broadly), and even contemporary medicine is still mostly good and retrievable (from its recent departure to temporary evil insanity). I mean, he certainly goes out of his way to admonish and argue with his own audience to that end. I don't participate in that, but it is amusing to some degree. But really, I think that he is more trying to convince himself with such writing. That's how it comes off to me anyway. He wants to believe in the process, in the school, in the basic decency of most people in general.
I'm pretty sure that ship has sailed, the train has left the station, and things have become just as bad as they appear and sound. The flu didn't go anywhere. It was rebranded, along with garden variety respiratory virus of all manner and kind, to further an evil agenda. Period.
To your excellent question there, I had in the comments offered a response based on psychological science (as you saw). As you may not have seen, eugyppius then banned me for 100 years from his substack and deleted my response. I've preserved it in my first substack article (written because I was so angered by the censorship): https://sanjoymahajan.substack.com/p/censored-views-about-the-fake-pcr
It's also copied below:
The scientific explanation is that it's all psychological science.
COVID is completely fake, so the sociopaths needed to conjure COVID cases out of somewhere. Their hired guns borrowed COVID cases partly from influenza (whose numbers are also mostly fake [1,2], but at least the illness, even if not the virus, exists) and also from other illnesses. But there was no real change in all-cause mortality [3,4,5].
Having created enough fear, now the socipaths could then con people into taking or mandating the highly poisonous holy waters as protection against the fake disease. The waters' "side" effects are various, including death, and the nondeadly ones are numerous enough to allow relabeling as COVID and influenza. So, influenza can return -- just in time for getting a Convid jab in one arm and a flu jab in the other.

Uh, isn't this all explained by the crummy mistaken idiotic use of the PCR test as a diagnostic? In which case pretty much every sniffle became marked as COVID, because, that's what they wanted to find? Cha-ching!
BRAVO‼️ BRAVO‼️ GC nails it again. Only this morning I was saying to someone who gets it, “Am I the only guy still asking this DISAPPEARING FLU question?!” Because now they’re cooking up the “BIVALENT” counter attack! THANK YOU SIR for so succinctly articulating the obvious. BOOM‼️ Somebody give this to Candace & Kanye 💥
I know the answer and have the answer.
I generally avoid saying this, almost always, as I can't stand when people toss their credentials out as proof that they "know" what they are talking about and have an expertise in "something."
I am a professional researcher and have been involved in research on "all things Covid" every day for the past 30 months. I knew what was coming in January of 2020. In part due to tracking these things since back in 2005 with the Avian Flu fraud and the subsequent frauds such as the 2009 Swine Flu hoax. In larger part I was made aware of what was coming due to a 'leak' that was inadvertently sent my way from someone connected to a loudmouth at the WHO. From that point I started tracking various items of the coming Covid fraud and one of those details was the CDC's ILI surveillance system.
I would log into their system every morning and take and keep notes of what they were recording in that system. I would copy it both digitally and manually. As we moved into early March 2020 it was audaciously obvious that the CDC was daily altering their data. I couldn't believe it. I feared that one day I would wake to find that they altogether scrub the ILI data from the internet which is why I took screenshots and made journal entries.
In a two month period- Feb 2020 to April 2020- the CDC went from all-time record high 'flu positive' weekly case percentages to all time record lows. How they did this has nothing to do with anything other than engineering data.
Ultimately I wrote a little not-so-organized piece on this in April 2020- oddly the best version of it was published on an obscure blog. Two years later I wrote a better, more organize piece on this also published.
As for Eugypius he/she doesn't know what they are talking about on much of anything. The individual is also intolerant of dissent no matter how well reasoned. I too was banned for a week after challenging them, quite mildly I might add, on a topic not worth discusiing here. I simply unsubscribed.
Aren't there something like 15-25% of deaths every year from PLI (pneumonia like illness)? Those are generally diagnosed by symptoms, not culture. These include, bacterial, flu, coronaviruses and other respiratory viruses. Those things never disappear, so it's not like covid came on a background of nothing. It just got awarded all the accolades.
I'm not totally convinced that viruses even exist.Terrain/exosome theory makes more sense to me.In the end it's all about pushing the masses towards the depop shot!
Scientism adherents apparently have powers of rationalization exceeding those of alcoholics.
People like being flued, can't get around it.
Great, I like that!
Only one thing puzzles me. I know of cases where people came down with bad, flu like sickness, where however the multiplex tests for various influenza and coronavirus types came back negative. Can that still have been "the" flu then?
Ha! This is brilliant. It also jogged my memory about a very c-roll video I watched about two years ago of Dr. Wakefield presenting the actual flu graphs at a small symposium somewhere.. I will do my best to find that rabbit hole again!
You're just thinkin too hard. Accept the magic and move on...
I believe you are spot on. Linking as usual @https://nothingnewunderthesun2016.com/
The Cars was a good addition, so I added my version of the Who as well ( With apologies to Pete Townshend )!!
Won't Get Flued Again
They will be dropping in the streets
With their children at their feet
And the science that they worship will be gone
And Fauci who spurred them on
Sits in judgement of who he says are wrong
He decided the mRNA jab sings the song
I'll tip my hat to the WEF constitution
Eat my bugs for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get flued again
The change, it had to come
We knew it all along
We are sheep in the same fold, that's all
And the world doesn’t look the same
And history ain't changed
'Cause the banners, they are flown in the Ukraine war
I'll move myself and my family aside
If we don’t get a shot and stay alive
I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky
Oh I know that the hypnotized never lie
There's nothing in the streets
Looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by the bye
And a parting on the left
Is now a parting on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight
Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss
I was working in a public health clinic until I was fired for COVID-non-vaccination a year ago.
It was true that the flu tests just came back negative in 2020. BOOM! gone...
My reading on it indicated that this has he=apened before, that a new viral epidemic/pandemic displaces the usual-suspects while it makes it's run.
SARS-CoV2 has always had a highr R0 (R sub naught) than influenza, and the amazingly high coefficient of transmission of the Omicron clan gae it new legs. Still, influenza is back, even if I'm not working as a doctor any more.
I was giving away free vitamin-D to patients and coworkers, and treating with HQ=CQ until ivermectin did so well in the bangladesh trial, always zinc, and quercetin. Lots of things help, and treatment should be in combinations, and early. Early really matters. Lots of good stuff OTC.
I heard from a traveling ER doc who went to some of the "hot zones" in the USA in 2020, as the specified protocols were forming mountains of bodies, that swabs for flu tests were very scarce, almost non-existent. I can conjure up a bunch of hypotheses as to why but no way to test them.
People started wearing 😷 😂😂😂😂😂
