I’ve been thinking, with everybody who got sick earlier in the semester, and all this upheaval about the mysterious CDE agent, perhaps there isn’t a virus… at least not the one you’re thinking of. You don’t get any symptoms, save one: paranoia. All this evidence? It all points to those people who are hiding in bunkers, talking about the end of the world – those who are crazy!
This would explain why we haven’t seen any massive outbreak of flu-like symptoms or people who eat strange things. Don’t get me wrong, there is a virus, but it makes your mind foggy, it doesn’t turn you into a zombie. Those who are afflicted the most are hiding away, out of sight. Those who aren’t hiding are quickly swept up by Mr. Rausch and his CDE team. It explains why they work in the shadows as well – they don’t want to cause any more panic. They couldn’t treat this like a normal outbreak because if word got out, normal people would become paranoid and turn on others as well.
I think this explains why some of our classmates, and our professor, are acting so strangely and considering every possibility from aliens to zombies… they’re in the early stages of this paranoia virus! Regardless, it’s a serious virus. Maybe it will spell The End for us? Who knows, maybe I’m wrong? What do you think?
