Good thread OP. I voted "other." I'm not religious per se, but many traditions speak of some kind of reset, or apocalypse, or return of some messianic figure, or some Great Purification, etc etc. I personally think that we are in "that time," and this virus is a part of it.
We have the locusts in Africa, we had the fires in Australia, we have talk of a star that is looking like it might go supernova anytime, we have artificial intelligence getting closer and closer to human level intelligence, we have the ability to literally alter the genome of a person through CRISPR - I mean,, there's a lot of stuff that one could relate to different prophecies from different traditions. And unlike what some say about other things, a lot of this is unprecedented - never before happened in the (known) history of humankind.
I also think like someone above me mentioned that it's not even the virus that's so scary, it's the effect on people, products, nations, supply chains, institutions, trust, etc . Things are accelerating, and the pressure is going up. It feels like it's just a matter of time before either the steam releases of the lid blows off.
And to be certain, I don't see this as a doom and gloom thing. It's been foretold, and it needs to happen. Let the Universe decide who stays and who goes - I'm good with whatever the decision is. We've lost our way as a race, too much hatred, fear, ignorance, division, greed. We need a reset, because we messed this game up.
