“One of the most pervasive of all the same old tricks being shoved at us is contagion. Also known as playing catch, it suggests that we can catch sickness from other people. While this is true, it’s only under one condition:we have to believe that we can.
It no different than when we were kids and someone said, “Hey, let’s play catch!” and they threw the ball at us. In most cases, we couldn’t resist reaching out and catching it. In real life, however, it’s not wise for us to reach out and catch every ball that comes our way. We serve ourselves and all those around us better if we simply let the ball go by and go on about our day.
Playing catch describes the entire foundation upon which contagiousness, or the germ theory of disease, is built. It depends 100 percent on our gullibility, on our openness to reach out and believe in ideas that don’t serve us but which engender huge profits for those who have a vested interest in them. Germ theory is just a theory – it’s not a fact at all…For germ theory to work we have to forget that our thoughts and not a bunch of little bugs, are creating our experiences.”
Tony Burroughs, in “The Law of Agreement”
