Pandora's Box: An Index & Beginner's Guide to the quest for justice & common sense in the COVID-19 pandemic
Spoiler Alert: there's still a lot of questing to go
This page is designed to serve as a roadmap for all of the articles here on Prometheus Shrugged; if curious, you can learn more about who I am, why I'm investigating the origin of the pandemic & who I’m investigating it with [DRASTIC]. The blog collects each of the articles written in 2020 and published on RixAnalytics.com & LinkedIn, as well as everything written since February of last year - which also turned out to be when I joined DRASTIC, an international ad-hoc team of scientists and researchers spread across four continents.
Prior to my arrival, they’d already uncovered enough evidence to help build enough of a case for a lab origin to push the WHO Director, Dr. Tedros, to reject the conclusions of the joint commission he had gathered out of embarrassment for the overtly self-serving ‘analysis.’ As luck would have it, I was in the middle of fleshing out a hypothesis in which Dr. Fauci had been directly involved in building an anti-lab leak narrative; every FOIA release since has proven that this was the case.
My only goal a year ago was to raise awareness about what I was discovering in those 83K pages. I’ve been blessed to have the support of a truly eclectic working group and other warriors in this fight, and the best way to pay it forward is to keep educating and digging. Here are the categories of posts:
Resources - Compilations of origin research, news articles, YouTube videos, evidence
Prometheus & Pandora - Scientific censorship & cover-up in research & Public Health
Wuhan’s House of Cards - The epidemiology & impact of the Wuhan outbreak
Politics & Data Commentary & Updates - Analyzing this COVID dumpster fire
Chicken Soup for the Troll - Poetry, Art & ‘Constructive Criticism’ - Sarcasm keeps me sane as I spend 12 hours a day chronicling the insanity we’ve all endured.
In addition, there are links to a number of large resources that are discussed in the “Prometheus Hub” post below, as well as a quick introductory guide to the COVID origin investigation and access to my excel workbook that contains 1,036 origin-related research papers and news articles relevant to the ongoing debate. That workbook alone has 23 additional tabs, the sum of which is the largest collection of its kind in existence. I’ve only included items that I’ve read in full.
You can also follow me on Twitter. Much more is coming - hopefully tomorrow.

“The Fauci censorship series makes up less than half of my blog articles here on Prometheus Shrugged, and I look forward to a time when I can put more energy into illuminating other aspects of this dumpster fire; nevertheless, the saga has served as the backdrop and driving force of the growth of my audience here, so it seems fitting to highlight the interplay between that growth and the narrative it followed.
In a sort of continuation of the mild reset/re-introduction for newer subscribers in Why is Prometheus Shrugging? [97% of my readers having joined up since 7/29], I wanted to put together a primer for my blog’s longest-running expose, which centers on the coordination between a small number of scientists [including Dr. Fauci] to control the scientific narrative of a natural origin for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.”

-I’ve endeavored to make as much of my research publicly and freely available as possible; to that end, I’ve maintained an ever-growing list of reference sources on ResearchGate that now contains 1,036 links to scholarly articles, relevant news stories and impactful commentaries on the topic - from all sides of the debate.
The virus was created to drive demand for the proffered "vaccines". These so-called vaccines had the odd effects, unlike any other vaccines, of not preventing infection, and not stopping spread of the infection, and they have side effects, most of which have to do with reducing life expectancy, or killing outright (stillbirth, MI, stroke, PE) or in the short term. Another effect is sterilization - women have been made barren by this "vaccine". Now, we have a problem that isn't much talked about - world population growth. Right now the population is 7.9 billion. With growth of just 1% per year - 79 million people - the world population doubles in 70/1 years - 70 years. That's the rule of 70 - see this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBtW51D_q2Q. So that's about 16 billion people by 2092. Current predictions are 11 billion people by 2050, with current growth.
We have an economic system entirely dependent on fossil fuels and non-renewable resources, like the rare earth metal lithium, and there's a finite supply of these available. With every new person, an additional amount of energy from these sources is required to sustain life. Mechanized agriculture is pretty much a means for converting fossil fuel energy into food, and it's pretty efficient, but this entails, with exponential population growth, exponential growth in the use - and depletion - of a non-renewable resource of which there is a finite amount. And this means that there is a hard limit to growth. We could get to the point where it takes a barrel of oil's energy to recover a barrel of oil, and beyond that point, there's no use to the exercise. And globalist corporatism - which is what the WEF represents and advocates for - is a *huge* user of fossil fuels - oil to run cargo ships, military equipment, avgas for aircraft, and so on, not to mention mechanized agriculture. So there's this hard limit, and the rush towards it is driven by population - even without growth, with the kind of economic growth the WEF looks for to remain profitable, fossil fuels are predicted to be depleted by 2050. That's 28 years out, and that means the end of mechanized agriculture - and globalism. So they're looking at that probability right in front of them.
Various people have done calculations, and most of them come up with the figure of about 2 billion - the population in 1950 - as being a sustainable population. 7.9 billion - 2.0 billion = 5.9 billion people that are "off the island"... Now, if you offer people an injection that will result in their death - or radically foreshortened life expectancy, and the sterilization of their wives and children, chances are they won't take it. But if the injection is the answer to a fearsome pandemic where people go to hospitals and die horribly, they will gladly take it - and urge it on others, if they think they will be protected. So, in a short time, the globalists' problem is solved. And corporations never let mass murder get in the way of profits, growth, or, frankly, continued enjoyment of a certain lifestyle...
Charles, great article as always.
I have a question. What do you think about Omicron Ba.1 specifically, being a product of a laboraty rather than an accident of nature? What do you think about its lack of recent ancestors, lack of synonymous mutations etc?
