I can see the diffusion point of view. On the microscopic level, all chemical process are prety much diffusion processes.

They have some other tricks, too, such as a something like proton transfer in aqueous solutions: the proton doesn't have to actually move - the charge propagates along the (H20)n chain. Fortunately, disease should be able to mimic this. Unfortunately, however, human behavior (as in deciding they need to hoard) does . . .

I just picked out one model that wasn't too difficult to describe. Is a person sneezing an SN1 or SN2 reaction?

Unlike the chemical in a reaction it has one special caveat that most annoying: unpredictable behavior of sentient reactants.
