The end of days - at least the ones I plan to spend on Vivos
I am hoping this post marks the end of my engagement with Vivos, a company that sells spots in retrofitted bunkers to people for a hefty price.
There are many, many more questions to be asked but based on the way they respond to emails I don’t think engaging with them further will serve much of a purpose.
On Monday I hope to be back to writing about realistic solutions to severe weather events or temporary halts in city services instead of trying to make sense of fear mongers.
Here is the most recent interaction I had with them.
Q: I asked (again) if they have a plan to maintain the mental well being of their members in case of a prolonged stay in the bunkers. They ignored the question in the last round of emails.
“There is. BTW, what is the plan for the health and well-being of your followers/readers that will be desperately fighting and struggling to survive on the surface if necessity requires Vivos members to be underground in their blast proof shelters?”
So I didn’t get far with that one. I asked the company to expand, phrasing the question a few different ways with specific points to be certain they knew what I was asking for. Here are the questions I emailed to a Vivos company representative. That is how the person responding the latest round of emails identifies themselves.
1. My question was (again) what are the specifics of your plan?
2. Do you have a plan in place to keep people calm / prevent anxiety and potential mental issues within the facility for extended periods of time?
3. Do you screen people before they are signed up to ensure they do not possess any volatile traits that could endanger other residents in close quarters if reaching the surface for extended periods of time was not a possibility?
4. Do you intend to have someone on site qualified to assess and treat psychological issues?
Response number two:
“That is four questions, not one as you indicated. As a categorical response for the edification of your readers that may have concern for the well-being of the Vivos members, be advised that each Vivos shelter is typically populated with at least 30 (per cent) of the members comprising doctors, surgeons, psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, EMT’s, dentists and a variety of experts throughout the medical field. Details of the specific operational plans for Vivos shelters are available only to actual co-owner members, provided through the escrow process.
If you have a specific personal mental issue or psychosis of concern to yourself or any of your followers, we would recommend you seek professional help and advice on where you should find a solitary shelter. However, it is certain that you would not pass the rigorous evaluations of our screening process, nor be approved and/or invited to be a co-owner of a Vivos community shelter.
If you would like to debate this subject further, we welcome your arranging for a national live broadcast. One of our experts will be happy to clarify any further questions you may have without your apparent post editorialization. Until then, we wish you well.”
This one actually made me a bit sad. At this point I would be delighted to discover that Vivos doesn't exist and I had been fooled by a brilliant pack of liberal arts students from California.
I hope anyone considering buying a space reads these emails to get a better understanding of how Vivos communicates and respond to questions and challenges about their plan.
This is what you get above ground. Wonder what it will be like beneath the earth.
I hope this is my last post but I can't promise. Goodbye for now Vivos and good luck.
