Abstract

Pandemics have become a common word among us; all we have to do is to adapt our lifestyle in contradiction to our former. The famous expression “life is a rat race” has already gotten its replacements of rats into bats as it seems, but that is not all. It is still a race but in this case, is a race of patience, persistence in quarantine conditions due to physical and psychological viruses. There are a lot of questions that circles around us making visions for the future neither optimistic nor pessimistic ones. What is happening around the world and us? Are we ready to face such major changes that we do not even know whether they are to be called changes? However, one thing is for sure that our perceptions are undergoing into fundamental new ways of repairing their style or maybe ours or both. If the world is getting ready for the big leap in an unplanned future, so do our social perceptions. Men have gone to the moon, explored space, have given thoughts about the universe, have also ruined nature, polluted air but all these were included in the men’s social perceptions. Now it seems that our fear of the unknown have risen along with the fear of unplanned risen of the new upcoming perceptions.
