The Sickness is more than a plague or disease. It is something that runs deeper than that to the core of the galaxy. This sickness manifests in many different ways ranging from actual diseases and plagues all the way to violent crimes of the most depraved nature.
To say everyone has it would not be far from the truth, but the whole galaxy has it. No one can pin point when the sickness began to creep in. The Children of Light say that it was over a thousand years ago, but what do they know. All we know is that it slipped into our daily life like new technology.
It shows itself differently on the different planets it affects, and as soon as we kill one plague it just changes up and into something else. On others it is violent crime and we’re not just talking murder but murder that involves an excessive amount of torture. Some even say that it goes so far on the lost worlds that men and women scar themselves in sick, twisted rituals that they believe give them supernatural powers.
