Is this the end of Vivos? At least on the blog?
My somewhat cordial relationship with Vivos may be drawing to a close.
If you read this blog you know I have developed a keen (what some may call obsessive) interest in a company called Vivos. They sell spaces in retrofitted bunkers throughout the U.S. as well as a facility in Europe. The shelter spots start at (U.S)$10,000 and can go past (U.S)$25,000 depending on what kind of space you want to enjoy.
In my previous posts I expressed my opinion (mine and mine alone) that Vivos was using fear to sell spaces in their underground facility.
My first response from the company was a bit on the defensive side, going as far as to question where I would like Star readers to be during a catastrophic event.
At the end of that post, as I have with most about Vivos, I stressed my point I do not want Star readers to be within a 1,000 miles of those doors.
But I did have more questions. I wanted to know what kind of preparations they were taking with security or who would maintain order beneath the earth.
The company directed me to a link that explained people would self identify based on existing skill sets. They also sent some information on the size of the various underground networks.
I was surprised and to be honest a bit impressed they continued to answer questions so I sent a few more.
My next round was related to the management of people's mental health or what would be done to keep people calm and mentally stable if they needed to stay beneath the earth for up to one year, as the company suggests they are capable of doing. This sprung partially from a comment on my blog from the founder of a website called 2010Hoax.com who has also questioned Vivos’ plans.
Here is my question. I edited out the thanks for the response and my hello.
Q: “Do you have any concerns for the psychological well-being of the people inside/ how will you ensure people are relaxed and calm?
Is there some kind of special measure in place or do you screen people to ensure they will not be a danger to other residents in high stress, contained environments?”
I also mentioned I intended to reference the comment the founder of 2012Hoax.com put on my blog.
Behold the response.
A: “We previously entertained your inquiries with the belief that you were a credible and neutral reporter. However, it is clear by your ongoing diatribe that your mission is to discourage your “followers” from preparing for potential future events and seeking a genuine survival solution.
It is ironic that you have critiqued Vivos for “fear-mongering” rather than alerting, while based on a snapshot of your publication’s headlines, it appears you are guilty of that which you condemn.
We wonder where you obtained your expertise that you so pretentiously prescribe and rant to your misguided flock. We too are grateful that you won’t be within 1,000 miles of any of our shelters!”
Dear misguided flock: Imagine my excitement to learn you exist!
During our time together I pledge to do my utmost to make sure you enjoy the best of what life, camping stores and freeze dried food companies have to offer. I do not however plan to stop asking Vivos about how they plan to contain and control frightened citizens stored inside submarine-like conditions for an extended period of time.
Dear Vivos. Thank you for the response. In case my repeated references to my opinion throughout my blog posts has not been clear, I want you to know I am not "neutral" but actually quite curious about your proposed facility and plan to continue being opinionated about the way you market your products. Still waiting for an answer to my question. I am honestly curious to know if you have one.
