Are perspectives on diseases without a human agent (empirical perspective) possible? “ From the disease image perspective (o1) through the cooperative discourse (02-03), and the “war frame” (04), Hector Rodriguez advances a point of view that conceives of a person as part and support of an ecological community. And what if “the bacteria that inhabit a person’s body are to a large extent unique to that person”? The assumptions of a microbial ecosystem define what it means to be person, so that a person is an ecological community. How ought we to think of personal identity when we consider the role of built spaces and dynamic interactions in shaping our microbial signatures?

“To sum it up: if the strongest shall fall, what can survive?” asked Elliott Wan, in search on more thorough research in his graduate studies. 「最強的也會倒下去，那麽能生存下去的可以是誰？」溫啟朗在完結篇留下了這問題，看來，繼續深究是必須的。
Many innovative responses have been evident to survive the impact of the pandemic, sustaining jobs and income for some. What is lost and what is gained? 新肺炎刺激了不同的生存手法，不乏對音樂創作的傳承。危機是渡過了，接著呢？
As part of his undergraduate thesis, Elliot Wan examines the shifts in HK indie music’s modes of distribution. Online-streaming and virtualization has been a growing trend, even before COVID-19 arrived. 獨立音樂的生產與傳遞趨數碼化、善用虛擬平台已成大勢，卻並不單由新冠狀肺炎所起。
How has HK’s independent music arena grown and sustained itself? What are the major factors at work? What specific shape has localism taken since 2009? How did COVID-19 alongside many social circumstances invoke modal changes in music production and distribution? Elliott Wan, in 10 episodes, accounts for many such questions through literature research, field studies and interviews with stakeholders. 香港獨立音樂場景系列一：溫啟朗讓「據點一杯茶」分享其對香港獨立音樂的景況的觀察和考查，回顧前瞻，翻出一個專屬香港的獨立音樂故事，作為創意媒體本科畢業的總結。
In these COVID-19 days, “underlying conditions” undermine those with chronic diseases in fighting the virus. Rather than a sheer physiological condition, Michael Leung quotes Rene Gabri: what are considered pre-existing conditions are “those imposed on people by capitalism and the state, making some more vulnerable than others (during the pandemic).” What are the possibilities of being immune not just a personal matter but a collective act?「本有」狀況？「既有」狀態？還是「固有」狀態？梁志剛在英回顧法國行程的經驗，體悟藝術家 Rene Gabri 的申述：既有狀態其實是資本主義和國家政府加諸我們身上的，其結果是有些人總比另一些人「脆弱」，例如在疫情高漲的時候。如是，「既有」的，因政策管治的上綱下達，便成了「固有」的境況。往下想，「免疫」或「免疫系統」的出現，是否可以超越「個人」層面而成為「協作」的、社區群體的？
