Governing time-constant diversity

Maybe that is why I write this blog, I am anticipating my fantasy government will be my audience.   It would learn about me and figure out where I might be useful.  The current world mostly ignores me and I am absolutely fine with that.  At the same time, I am writing here to announce to the world that I am here, in case it wants to use me.

On masks, face shields, and vaccines: humans becoming extraterrestrials

The image reminds me of extra-terrestrial aliens in space suits walking in an alien world that has some kind of toxic atmosphere.   These are humans.   This is no longer their planet.   They are temporarily stranded on this alien world and hope that science will bring in their rescue ships, probably in the form of some kind of consciousness upload into an Internet cloud.
