The Charm of Unlikeness

UN warns about the coming outbreak of mental health issues due to the uncertainty caused by COVID-19 but a trigger isn't a cause. 

 

The cause is self-domestication of people - the creation of a stable and predictable artificial environment that made people over adapted to certainty and unable to resist uncertainty.

 

Development of psychological resistance to uncertainty is  more important now than drugs and vaccines because the psychological damage may by the order of magnitude exceed the direct impact of the virus. A game that will train people to deal with uncertainty is the solution.
