There are four things to know about the science of Coronavirus to look up if you are interested:
Four is my favorite number because it represents so much stability. If you look around you right now you will see a lot of things that are standing on four legs or that have four sides and four corners. It's a basic.
My domain name is visiQUAD.ca. which means things seen in fours. The name visiquad was invented by me in about 1989. I had started a business of what we now call "staging" properties for re-sale. It represented one quarter of what my long term goal was and the name for all four, when it came to pass, was "visiQUAD"! 2015 is when I brought the sum total of everything I do and secured the name.
On your hand you say you have four fingers and a thumb. If I ask, "Is your thumb a finger?" Well... you will hesitate. It is a 'digit' but no one wants to call it a finger, so that leave four! Toes are a different story. We have five of them and we don't have a special name for the big one. I digress.
The directions north, south, east, and west are a visiquad. So is up, down, forward, and backwards a visiquad for movement.
My library has 66 lineal feet of book shelves that all have four sides, and four corners, including each shelf, and each opening where the books are. All the books have four sides when you look straight on at the cover, the back, or even the spine. The tables, chairs, and footstools all have four legs, even the one that's oval shape. The windows, the doors, and even the house itself is mostly made of materials that are four sided. And of course all our digital devices seem to have four sides and four corners. Go figure.
A four leaf clover is considered good luck, because it's so rare to find one. It's also rare to find good leaders do and here's an article listing the "4 Rare (and Brilliant) Things Smart Leaders Do to Get Respect. https://www.inc.com/marcel-schwantes/4-rare-and-brilliant-things-smart-leaders-do-to-ge.html
The number four shows up 30 times in the book of Revelation. You may have heard of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. My pastor Dad has an interesting interpretation of them which I'm wondering about right now. He imagined that the Black Horse stood for oil. The White Horse represented paper, printing, or information. The Red Horse he postulated could stand for socialism and the Pale Horse for sickness, disease, and plagues. All of them seem to be riding as a fast gallop around the world right now in one way or another. So maybe Dad saw something and it's happening right now.
Regardless, four is an important number and I'm sticking with that thought... fist pump anyone?
