Description The Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus , or the SARS-CoV-21 that is upon the world body at the current moment in time is much less of a physiological [both with respect to human or animal biology] aberration or a pathological malady than an(other) indication, an(other) anticipatory marker if we may, of an emerging epochal ontology that presupposes if not accompanies the Anthropocene. This ontology that we currently see [or are not able to see] and talk about is a different kind of ontology and a new study of being [one that has already been explained at length by the likes of Jean Baudrillard (Simulacra and Simulation), Jean Francois Lyotard (The Postmodern Condition) and Jacques Derrida], not necessarily with respect to the effect it has or is going to have on global geopolitics, but rather with respect to how this kind of being should be perceived and received, along with the knowledge, understanding and dimension that it espouses. This ontology would be called the ontology of the virus, or a 'irology'.
