Morgellons Researchers

Morgellons in Our Blood – Part 2… continued

 

A blood smear from the finger of someone with evident Morgellons directly into the Petri Dish.  Cultured on 10/5/09 in nutrient agar and photographed at 100x on 10/19/09.  These photos represent Day 14, the fungus has started to take off…the baculovirus are starting to occlude with polyhedron.

Day 14

The Role of the Fungus:

The fungus is starting to rapidly reach out and infects the baculoviral spheres, this is 10/23, it is the fungus that causes ‘infection’ and for the occlusions to start:

Day 18

10_23_38 10_23_17 10_23_18 10_23_19 10_23_20 10_23_21 10_23_22 10_23_23 10_23_24 10_23_25 10_23_26 10_23_27 10_23_28 10_23_29 10_23_30

10_23_37

I’m thinking that it takes contact with the fungus to ‘infect’ the baculovirus and create the polyhedron, which will be more evident in these next set of photos. 

Day 25

How The “Starships” Are Born:

I noticed that the oblong “Mother Starship” had given birth to the pointed-edge baby starships, these are the carbon, baculoviral  capsid that holds the GM fungus gnat larvae.  These were seen in human samples in other experiments, I called them “Starships”, photographed at 100x:

And here is one of these baculoviral polyhedron that has grown and seen in a human arm lesion sample Petri Dish and is also photographed at 100x:

Baculovirus In Our Vaccines

 

They have successfully experimented with putting the baculovirus in the flu vaccines in the recent past:

"In the study conducted by Treanor, together with colleagues at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and the University of Virginia, scientists tested a vaccine called FluBlOk that is made by Protein Sciences Corp. of Meriden, Ct. FluBlOk relies on a virus known as baculovirus, which normally infects insects, to churn out the key components of the flu virus in a cell line drawn from caterpillars."

"Bypassing Eggs, Flu Vaccine Grown in Insect Cells Shows Promise

April 10, 2007

An experimental flu vaccine made in insect cells – not in eggs, where flu vaccines currently available in the United States are grown – is safe and as effective as conventional vaccines in protecting people against the flu, according to results published in the April 11 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association." [1]

We have seen that they already are putting fullerenes (carbon balls that are in the Squalene) in vaccines… and now baculovirus… our latest vaccine that costs us $25 apiece @125 million produced… let’s see… that’s $3,125,000,000 (billion dollars) in sales versus a few thousand people that could be having some sort of "skin reaction" to something that might  be in the vaccines?

The Baculovirus may be a wonderful thing in today’s vaccines however my complaint, and it should be yours too, is that at some time – someone was experimenting with the baculovirus and fullerenes and made a mistake. We have these very foreign particles inside of us, in our blood, in our organs, evidently ravishing our digestive systems with some… and we want all aspects of these particle pathogens removed out of our systems, we want to be somewhat normal human beings again. How can you make something in a lab, put it in our food/water supply that might infect a person, and not have an antidote? No, a better question is;  How can you be allowed to put the Morgellons pathogens into our food/water/air/insect supply in the first place and turn it loose for us to unknowingly  eat, drink, breathe and come into contact with?

If we smoke cigarettes, we might get cancer and have many adverse health problems associated with it – we know this… so, we can make the choice to smoke or not.  And… if we come down with lung cancer later in life, we can’t complain too much and especially say, ‘I didn’t know, if I had known, I would have made better choices…’. With Morgellons it appears that all you have to do is eat certain foods, drink your tap water, get stung or bitten by an insect that some student, soon-to-be future scientist, has modified at a near-by university and set loose… or go outside after a chemtrail emission… basic things that we have to do in order to survive has put our entire future good health at risk. We have to eat, drink water, breathe the air and be able to go outside without our good health being constantly compromised, we have no choices in these basic living matters.

That is the difference in smoking and Morgellons, we don’t have a single clue that certain things are in our environments that might be wrong for us to choose to avoid.  Give us some warnings, like on the side of cigarette packettes, let us know that this product contains fullerenes, micelles, nano, baculovirus, etc. so that we can have some control over our health, let us know that it’s a heavy chemtrail spray day so that we can make choices to stay inside or to keep our car windows rolled up, and don’t we have a right to know what’s in these emissions?  We are being adversely blind sighted from too many directions in a seeming fear of transparency on their part, why all the secrecy if there’s nothing to hide?

The cigarette manufacturers had to start putting warning labels on the product when it was proven that cigarettes caused certain diseases and they were sued because people said they didn’t have any warning. What’s the difference in today’s foods and what’s in them and how they falsely advertise and promote them as being something good for you without listing a single caution, just like they did with early cigarette ad campaigns?   

Most of us have been to our doctors many times to complain about our disease, and with most of us – we have been to see many different doctors… and with no to a minimal response from them, only because it seems they fear being sued for total malpractice. They don’t appear to have any interest in looking to see what’s wrong with us, when did this non-caring mindset amongst our doctors come about? Why do they have this attitude? Possibly because they know or suspect that the vaccines that they have been handing out are possibly one the culprits in our disease, that if they look closer – it might slow down  the current vaccine nanotechnology? That if they start uncovering, this might lead to looking closer at the FDA… DOA… EPA… CDC… NIH… why, we might even have to label our foods?

I suspect the way things work is that the vaccine makers can say… ‘well, they’ve been using fullerenes and baculovirus in our foods and water for years now and there doesn’t seem to be any adverse reactions… if there were adverse reactions – people would have reported it to their doctors and we’d know about it.’ Ha! What a joke we’re in the middle of! Doctors are known to be slightly above average in intelligence, we have to start appealing to this and their non-action and how it’s leading to the entire world’s future ill health. It’s perpetuating because they are refusing to listen and take us seriously as the first stop gap measure, when the doctors stop listening or caring about patients – our health system has failed.  We have put our trust in our doctors and they are violating their oaths, for whatever occult  reasons.  This avoidance to look at us is allowing whomever a green light to contaminate more and further, ‘it’s proven to be ok in our food and water, therefore should be ok in vaccines’…

If we have fullerenes, micelles, baculovirus inside of us as I am seeing, what does this mean to the Morgellons sufferer when more are added with the addition of a vaccination or eating heavy-laden foods with them in it, or drinking our unfiltered tap water?  And, why the baculovirus, and not a hydrogel sphere? They are speaking of the ACNPV (Autographia California Nuclear Polyhedron Virus) baculovirus in the article above, the shell of the sphere is made from the Autographia California moth or caterpillar.

If doctors or someone doesn’t step up to defend us soon… baculovirus will be in more consumables  – what’s next, baculovirus and/or fullerenes in your baby’s formula?   I’m almost afraid to look.

Morgie Blood – The Strangeness Inside of Us

 

I cut my finger today and decided to look at my blood under the microscope at 100x:

10_22_0 10_22_1 10_22_2 10_22_3

To see the blood better, I put a piece of onion skin paper on the light source…on these I can see the carbon ball orbs, micelles or liposomes:

10_22_10 10_22_5 10_22_6 10_22_9

There’s a weird stringy, spider web-like effect to my blood:

Foods Affecting Morgellons?

 

As some of you know, I started looking at certain products and foods a while back to see if any of them matched the objects I was seeing microscopically.  One of the first foods I looked at was rice after finding a dark, seed-like particle in the grains as I was preparing to cook it.  I will put some of those photos at the end of this article.

Pineapple – Non Organic

Recently, I was eating some diced pineapples from a can in a bowl and in the juice, I noticed what looked like a very small splinter, possibly a piece off of the outside part of the pineapple that I am sure I have seen such a splinter before and not think much of it.  I decided to look at it under the microscope on a slide,  I didn’t take any photos at that time but ended up putting this piece in a Petri Dish to see what would develop.

These following photos show a few days progression of this ‘splinter’ piece:

I did not come back and photograph this object for a couple of days… these first photos represent 2 days growth in the Petri Dish with nutrient agar @100x:

What is odd is that this splinter piece started out as one piece, it now was two… two objects are side by side.

I have drawn a white dotted line down the center of where the objects are.  Initially, the part on the right only was seen:

I can’t say for certain yet, but it looks like this splinter is a capsid of sorts and some sort of baculovirus expression has come out of it?  Looking closer at the bottom photo:

 

The object to the left of the splinter, appears to have head and tail end, this is photographed from the head to the tail end:

On day 4, a sphere appears to the left and above this what is appearing to be a baculovirus:

 

Day 5:

 

Day 9, definitely looks like a baculovirus is forming:

continued later…

Bananas – Non Organic

Wondering about bananas because of the obvious attraction by fungus gnats and having a couple laying around, I decided to look at them.

The Outer Skin

I took a serrated knife and scraped the outside skin of a banana that  has some brown spots forming, at 100x on a slide:

The Inner Skin

Peeling the banana and scraping the inside skin onto the slide and spreading the matter, at 100x, the carbon capsids are becoming evident:

The Inside ‘Meat’ Part:

Carrots – Non Organic

I scraped the outside of bagged carrots purchased the day before and put on a slide @ 100x:

Milk – Non Organic

I pour some milk from a new carton into a small  glass and then pour directly from this glass onto the slide.  I immediately see a fiber/nematode-like entity in the milk sample on the slide @100x.

You can see the particles of the milk are moving and this might cause the fiber to move.  I decide to make a movie of it:

There are some other fiber-like ‘entities’ in the milk on the second sample photograped:

Rice

A seed-like particle was seen in a newly opened bag of cooking rice, I decided to culture it in agar, this Day 1:

08_06_1 

Day 2

The red and blue hyphae  fungus start growing:

08_08_13

Liposomes or Micelles?

 

Micelle

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micelles

Normally, the hydrophobic tail of the micelle is introverted:

 

Scheme of a micelle formed by phospholipids in an aqueous solution.

Inverse/reverse micelles

In a non-polar solvent, it is the exposure of the hydrophilic head groups to the surrounding solvent that is energetically unfavourable, giving rise to a water-in-oil system. In this case the hydrophilic groups are sequestered in the micelle core and the hydrophobic groups extend away from the centre. These inverse micelles are proportionally less likely to form on increasing headgroup charge, since hydrophilic sequestration would create highly unfavorable electrostatic interactions. [1]

In some cases, as described above, the hydrophobic tail  becomes introverted:

Scheme of an inverse micelle formed by phospholipids in an organic solvent.

Connecting Micelles

A novel strategy to link block copolymer micelles via metal–ligand interactions, leading to hierarchical supramolecular networks is presented. The mechanical properties of the obtained materials can be tuned easily by the choice of the metal ions used. The strong networks exhibit a chemical and mechanical stimuli responsive behavior, with almost instantaneous recovery in the latter case.  [1]

What we have seen in human samples to show connecting micelles:

Critical micelle concentration

”In chemistry, the critical micelle concentration (CMC) is defined as the concentration of surfactants above which micelles are spontaneously formed. Upon introduction of surfactants (or any surface active materials) into the system they will initially partition into the interface, reducing the system free energy by a) lowering the energy of the interface (calculated as area x surface tension) and b) by removing the hydrophobic parts of the surfactant from contacts with water. Subsequently, when the surface coverage by the surfactants increases and the surface free energy (surface tension) has decreased, the surfactants start aggregating into micelles, thus again decreasing the system free energy by decreasing the contact area of hydrophobic parts of the surfactant with water. Upon reaching CMC, any further addition of surfactants will just increase the number of micelles (in the ideal case). ”  [2]

Surfactant

”Surfactants are usually organic compounds that are amphiphilic, meaning they contain both hydrophobic groups (their "tails") and hydrophilic groups (their "heads"). Therefore, they are soluble in both organic solvents and water.

A micelle—the lipophilic tails of the surfactant molecules remain on the inside of the micelle due to unfavourable interactions. The polar "heads" of the micelle, due to favourable interactions with water, form a hydrophilic outer layer that in effect protects the hydrophobic core of the micelle. The compounds that make up a micelle are typically amphiphilic in nature, meaning that not only are micelles soluble in protic solvents such as water but also in aprotic solvents as a reverse micelle.

Health and environmental controversy

Some surfactants are known to be toxic to animals, ecosystems and humans, and can increase the diffusion of other environmental contaminants. Despite this, they are routinely deposited in numerous ways on land and into water systems, whether as part of an intended process or as industrial and household waste. Some surfactants have proposed or voluntary restrictions on their use. For example, PFOS is slated for persistent organic pollutant (POP) status by the Stockholm Convention. Additionally, PFOA has been subject to a voluntary agreement by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency‎ and eight chemical companies to reduce and eliminate emissions of the chemical and its precursors. However, other industries operate outside of the voluntary PFOA program.”  [3]

Lipid polymorphism

Cross Section view of the structures that can be formed by phospholipids in aqueous solutions

In lipid polymorphism, if the packing ratio of lipids is greater or less than one, lipid membranes can form two separate hexagonal phases, or nonlamellar phases, in which long, tubular aggregates form according to the environment the lipid is introduced.

Liposomes

When we look at micelles, we see that liposomes are next of kin…

”Liposomes are used as models for artificial cells.

A liposome is a tiny bubble (vesicle), made out of the same material as a cell membrane. Liposomes can be filled with drugs, and used to deliver drugs for cancer and other diseases.

Membranes are usually made of phospholipids, which are molecules that have a head group and a tail group. The head is attracted to water, and the tail, which is made of a long hydrocarbon chain, is repelled by water.

Liposomes, usually but not by definition, contain a core of aqueous solution; lipid spheres that contain no aqueous material are called micelles, however, reverse micelles (those creating fibers) can be made to encompass an aqueous environment.

* The use of liposomes for transformation or transfection of DNA into a host cell is known as lipofection.

In addition to gene and drug delivery applications, liposomes can be used as carriers for the delivery of dyes to textiles[4], pesticides to plants, enzymes and nutritional supplements to foods, and cosmetics to the skin.

It should be noted that formation of liposomes and nanoliposomes is not a spontaneous process. Lipid vesicles are formed when phospholipids such as lecithin are placed in water and consequently form one bilayer or a series of bilayers, each separated by water molecules, once enough energy is supplied [8]. Liposomes can be created by sonicating phospholipids in water[3]. Low shear rates create multilamellar liposomes, which have many layers like an onion. Continued high-shear sonication tends to form smaller unilamellar liposomes.

Further advances in liposome research have been able to allow liposomes to avoid detection by the body’s immune system, specifically, the cells of reticuloendothelial system (RES). These liposomes are known as "stealth liposomes", and are constructed with PEG (Polyethylene Glycol) studding the outside of the membrane. The PEG coating, which is inert in the body, allows for longer circulatory life for the drug delivery mechanism.

However, research currently seeks to investigate at what amount of PEG coating the PEG actually hinders binding of the liposome to the delivery site. In addition to a PEG coating, most stealth liposomes also have some sort of biological species attached as a ligand to the liposome in order to enable binding via a specific expression on the targeted drug delivery site. These targeting ligands could be monoclonal antibodies (making an immunoliposome), vitamins, or specific antigens.

Targeted liposomes can target nearly any cell type in the body and deliver drugs that would naturally be systemically delivered. Naturally toxic drugs can be much less toxic if delivered only to diseased tissues. Polymersomes, morphologically related to liposomes can also be used this way.”  [4]

Lipofection

”Lipofection (or liposome transfection) is a technique used to inject genetic material into a cell by means of liposomes, which are vesicles that can easily merge with the cell membrane since they are both made of a phospholipid bilayer. Lipofection is a lipid-based transfection technology which belongs to biochemical methods including also polymers, DEAE dextran and calcium phosphate. The main advantages of lipofection are its high efficiency, its ability to transfect all types of nucleic acids in a wide range of cell types, its ease of use, reproducibility and low toxicity. In addition this method is suitable for all transfection applications (transient, stable, co-transfection, reverse, sequential or multiple transfections…), high throughput screening assay and has also shown good efficiency in some in vivo models.”   [5]

Now that we have established a better understanding of liposomes, we can look into this further.

Micelles Inside of Us?

 

Believing that Carnicom is finding that we have an artificial blood component in the carbon spheres that we are seeing in the red wine samples, within the frass of the fungus gnat, and in the fungal growth and which appears to be the main carbon sphere involved in Morgellons, and that they might be a respirocyte, I emailed the main expert  authority on Respirocytes, Robert Frietas, Jr., with the following question:

Dr. Freitas,

I am a Medical Researcher and seeing that you are an expert in Respirocytes and was wondering if you could identify the microscopic photo below as one?

Thanking you in advance for your time.”

(and sent him a link to this photo below:)

Dr. Frietas responds back with:

”No, those look more like micelles, with slightly lumpy edges;  the profile edge of a respirocyte would appear perfectly smooth at this magnification.

Best wishes,
Robert A. Freitas Jr. ”

Micelles

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micelle

Where Micelles Are Used?

A fellow researcher posted a link to a fluid analysis company that will analyze your water sample for free @

http://www.fluidimaging.com/free-trial.aspx

When you go to their Image Gallery, under ”Industrial”, you see ”Glass Microspheres” and ”Microencapsulated” spheres which also look like micelles.

http://www.fluidimaging.com/image-gallery.aspx#gallCat11

I am wondering since they show potato starch twice above, what relationship it has to micelles?

Micelles Are Used in Water Treatment to Remove Antibiotics

This is an abstract below that shows where they used micelles in removing certain pharmaceuticals from our water:

”Removal of tetracycline and sulfonamide antibiotics from water by micelles pre-adsorbed on montmorillonite was studied. Micelles of benzyldimethylhexadecylammonium (BDMHDA) were used. Batch experiments demonstrated that the micelle–clay complexes (1% w/w) removed 96–99.9% of antibiotics from their water solutions containing from 5 to 50 mg/L of pharmaceuticals.”   [1]

Micelles are used as a flocculant:

Adsorptive Micellar Flocculation (AMF) is a surfactant mediated method for the removal of pollutants from water. It could be described as a hybrid of Micellar Enhanced Ultra Filtration (MEUF) and Coagulation-Flocculation with flocculants. In MEUF a micellar surfactant solution is formed in an effluent. It solubilises or adsorbs target pollutants, and then the pollutant-loaded micelles are rejected by a filtration membrane (with a cut off of less than 50 kDa, variable with the type of surfactant and related size of micelles). The result is a concentrate (retentate) containing micellar surfactant and associated pollutant, and an a treated effluent containing monomeric surfactant (that is, not formed in micelles) and non-associated pollutant. In Coagulation-Flocculation with flocculants a suitable combination of flocculant (e.g. Al3+, Fe3+) dosage and pH allows the precipitation of aluminum and iron salts of organic pollutants and subsequently the flocculation of the forming precipitate, thus facilitating its filtration. In AMF, micelles coagulate/flocculate by adsorption of the flocculant cation, which suppresses electrostatic repulsion between micelles (Talens et al., 1998).”  [2]

Water Treatment Processes:

”Abstract: Described herein are compositions and methods useful for the purification of water using dendritic macromolecules. The process involves using dendritic macromolecules (dendrimers) to bind to contaminants, and a filtration step to produce water from which contaminants have been removed or modified. Examples of dendrimers that may be used in the process include cation-binding dendrimers, anion-binding dendrimers, organic compound-binding dendrimers, redox-active dendrimers, biological compound-binding dendrimers, catalytic dendrimers, biocidal dendrimers, viral-binding dendrimers, multi-functional dendrimers, and combinations thereof.

In a typical MEUF process, a surfactant is added to polluted water. The aqueous solution is then passed through an ultrafiltration membrane with pore sizes smaller than those of the organic/metal ion laden micelles. In PEUF, a water-soluble linear polymer with strong binding affinity for the target metal ions is added to contaminated water. The resulting solution is passed through an ultrafiltration membrane (UF) with pore sizes smaller than those of the metal ion-polymer complexes.

MEUF is based on the use of non-covalently bonded micelles to extract organic solutes and/or bind metal ions. Micelles are dynamic and flexible structures with finite lifetime. Because of this, their size, shape, organic solubilization capacity, metal ion binding capacity and retention by UF membranes are very sensitive to surfactant concentration and solution physical-chemical conditions (e.g., pH, temperature, ionic strength, etc). Although the use of micellar solutions of height molecular weight block ABA copolymer of PEO-PPO-PEO surfactants could reduce surfactant losses to a certain extent (Richardson et al., (1999) J. Appl. Polym. Sci. 4:2290), the leakage of surfactant monomers remains a major problem in water treatment by MEUF.”  [3]

Benefits of MEUF:

We can see that there are possibly a lot of benefits to using micelle technology in our water treatment systems?  They are capable of removing or flocculating phenol, benzoic acid or 2,4-D, and ions like Zn and Cu and lots of other unwanted compounds…  BUT… something unusual has more than likely happened inside the body of a person with evident Morgellons that is interacting with the micelle in the water.

To find out if you have micelle or baculovirus expressions in your drinking water, call and set up a sample examination today.  Or call your water company to find out if micelle technology is being used in your area.

Carnicom’s Report of Artificial Red Blood Cells in Morgellons

 

Clifford Carnicom has caught us with not knowing what to think in his latest research artificial blood update on his web site @

http://www.carnicom.com/contrails.htm

ARTIFICIAL BLOOD (?)
Clifford E Carnicom
Aug 27 2009

Strong evidence now exists that an artificial or modified blood form is a dominant internal component, if not the dominant component, of dental filament samples that are commonly associated with the Morgellons condition.”

http://www.carnicom.com/blood2.htm

He sent the samples out to two different testing labs and got a positive result from both of hematology being present and is using a Hemastik blood present testing device, which is also showing positive when applied to experiment samples.

There are thousands of patents which show that we have been able to create artificial red blood cells for a while now, here are a few below.  Note that this first one is a baculoviral artificial red blood cells suggested use in influenza vaccines:

The Red Wine Test Day 1

I decided to see what I produced by swishing some red wine in my mouth and spit it directly into to Petri Dish with nutrient agar, I see where Carnicom is using blood agar.

Below are my first series of photographs at 100x, I see right away there are what I am calling baculoviral capsids, and what Carnicom is calling, red blood cells in the specimen. 

I used red wine only, no peroxide.  As far as I know, the inside of my mouth is not bleeding and is in fairly good dental health.  I did not leave the big chunks of the material in the dish, only smaller ones, so that I could photograph it easily:

How Artificial Blood Works

However, additional research has led to several specific blood substitutes in two classes — hemoglobin-based oxygen carriers (HBOCs) and perflourocarbons (PFCs).

One HBOC, called MP4, is made from hemoglobin coated in polyethylene glycol.

Unlike HBOCs, PFCs are usually white and are entirely synthetic. They’re a lot like hydrocarbons — chemicals made entirely of hydrogen and carbon — but they contain fluorine instead of carbon.  [1]

From 2004 to 2006, Northfield Laboratories began testing an HBOC called PolyHeme on trauma patients. The study took place at more than 20 hospitals around the United States. Since many trauma patients are unconscious and can’t give consent for medical procedures, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the test as a no-consent study. In other words, doctors could give patients PolyHeme instead of real blood without asking first. [2]

Patients given artificial blood  23 October, 2003

Doctors have for the first time successfully used artificial blood to treat patients.

The product is a powder which can be stored for years, say scientists at Stockholm’s Karolinska Hospital.

It is made from donated supplies of real blood, which normally has a shelf-life of just 42 days.

The powder can then be mixed into liquid form when needed, and used immediately regardless of the patient’s blood type. 

The synthetic blood has been developed by researchers in the US – the exact process for developing it has been kept secret – and it has been tested for the first time on eight patients at Karolinska Hospital. ”  [3]

Some of the artificial bloods on the market today:

Oxygent

OxygentTM is an intravascular oxygen carrier in clinical development as a temporary "blood substitute" to reduce or eliminate the need for donor blood transfusions during surgery.   OxygentTM is the only form of perflourocarbon currently on the market.  It is licensed only for veterinary use and is undergoing stage III trials in humans.  It is an emulsion of perflourocarbons and
a lecithin membrane.  [4]

HemAssist

In such form stabilised haemoglobin (diaspirin cross-linked haemoglobin, DCLHb; trade name HemAssist; Baxter Healthcare Corp) reached Phase III clinical trials. This is the most widely studied of the haemoglobin-based blood substitutes, used in more than a dozen animal and clinical studies.

Hemolink

Hemolink (Hemosol, Inc., Missiassauga, Canada) is a haemoglobin solution that contains cross-linked an o-rafinose polymerised human haemoglobin which is currently in Phase II trials in cardiothoracic surgery in USA. Previous conducted Phase III in Canada demonstrated the effectiveness of Hemolink as substitute to conventional transfusion in cardio surgery patients.

Hemopure and Biopure

Two additional cross-linked polymers of bovine (Hemopure, Biopure, Cambridge, MA) and human (PolyHeme, Northfield Laboratories, Inc.) origin have been used in trials during cardiac and abdominal surgery as well as in trauma patients.

OxyVita

OxyVita Hb is a polymerised HBOC developed at the University of Maryland, Baltimore and undergoing pre-clinical studies in the United States. Polymerisation is via a novel synthetic process involving the linkage of activated carboxyl groups with lysyl residues, to form a so-called "zero-linked" polymerised haemoglobin lacking chemical residues. The zero-linked polymerisation process can be applied to a wide variety of mammalian haemoglobins.

Encapsulated hemoglobin

One other form of HBOCs (hemoglobin based oxygen carriers) is encapsulated haemoglobin. In the 1950s, the first form of encapsulated haemoglobin was developed but limited technical possibility and absence of public interest slowed further development until the HIV crisis.

Military Use

In the 1980s, an HBOC was developed by the US Army at the Letterman Army Institute of Research (LAIR) which did not need typing. However, in clinical trials the HBOC were proven to be problematic, with more deaths using the HBOC than in the control group. Yet, their use would be of value to sustain the wounded in military conflicts.  [5]

There is mention of  a study done where polymerized bovine hemoglobin solution was given as a replacement for allogeneic red blood cell transfusion after cardiac surgery in this Science Direct article

Modified Hemoglobin

One solution was to use a modified form of the chemical used by our own red blood cells, hemoglobin.  Natural hemoglobin decays within hours from a tetramer protein into a dimer,  which is useless and highly toxic to the  liver. Researchers have tried to chemically stabilize hemoglobin or to encapsulate it within artificial red blood cells.

All forms of modified hemoglobin yet produced have an exceptionally short lifespan in the human bloodstream – the best achievement is with artificial red blood cells that have a half-life of about 20 hours.

Respirocyte

 

Below is an animation movie of a respirocyte (an artificial red blood cell) being injected into the bloodstream.  This looks very similar to what we are seeing in samples:

 

Respirocytes mimic the action of the natural hemoglobin-filled red blood cells. The design of the spherical nanorobot is made up of 18 billion atoms arranged as a tiny pressure tank.

Uses

Each respirocyte can store and transport 236 times more oxygen than natural red blood cells. It can also monitor carbon acidity in the cell.

Theorist Robert Freitas has proposed respirocytes as a superior alternative to naturally occurring red blood cells, and has similarly proposed "microbivore" robots that would attack pathogens in the manner of white blood cells.

Development

By definition, respirocytes qualify as nanotechnology, a field of technology still in the early phases of development. Considerations involved in building respirocytes include power, immune reaction or toxicity, computation and communication, and social issues such as economics.

Because respirocytes and related technologies would, if successful, improve the user’s abilities beyond normal human limits, their design is associated with the Transhumanism movement which seeks such advances. [6]

A Paper on  Respirocytes by Robert Frietas

http://www.foresight.org/Nanomedicine/Respirocytes.html

 

http://www.nanomedicine.com/NMIIA.htm

A respirocyte preferentially mechanically extracts oxygen from its environment and stores it, pressurized. It can do the same with carbon dioxide and so can perform same role that blood does in its course through the body. It has computational capability, design redundancy, communication capability; uses glucose in the blood for energy, etc. [7].

The purposed artificial Respirocyte is a spherical nanomedical device 1 micron in diameter made up of a flawless diamond or sapphire shell constructed atom by atom. This device moves gas molecules into and out of small, pressurized vessels. There are molecular sorting rotors with binding sites known as pockets that are exposed along the rim to adhere to a specific molecule when exposed to the plasma. The bonding site rotates to expose the interior chamber and the bound molecules are forcibly ejected by rods and stored in tanks. The Respirocite is powered by a motor which generates mechanical energy by combining glucose and oxygen [8].

Aren’t We Seeing Respirocytes in Our Samples?

Below are earlier published photos of what I believe resembles a respirocyte that is being seen in human samples that Carnicom is calling a ‘red blood cell’ and that I am calling a ‘baculovirus capsid’:

 

Day 2 of The Red Wine
Test

Day 2’s observation shows capsids and spheres forming:

And lots of cellular activity inside this piece:

 

It seems strange that a technology that isn’t even developed yet is inside of us?

Red Wine Test – Day 3

I can’t tell that much is happening other than a few good-sized spheres are developing:

 

Red Wine Test – Day 4

A sphere has split:

I can’t tell that the cells in this area are getting any larger, I would have to do a comparison to day 1 or 2 to see…

 

Comparison to Day 2…

 

No, I don’t notice any significant change in the inner cell size from Day 2 to Day 4.

 

 The Culturing of Red Wine

Not to take away from Carnicom, I think any help we get at this juncture is a God-send, but I happened to notice something tonight that might affect culturing red wine.    I have a fungus gnat infestation in my home that I can’t seem to get under control, this has been on-going now for a while and realize that it is probably due to how my washing machine is leaking onto the wood under the house, a long story…

Anyway, I am devising ways to trap the two endless gnats in my environment with fine china glasses of red wine set out.  In one glass I have a cheap wine, which invariably a fungus is growing in two separate rooms… this fungus looks exactly like that in Carnicom’s photos @ http://www.carnicom.com/blood2.htm

I am thinking that since there is possibly a fungal agent added into the wine-making process to create this fungal variable in his Petri Dish growth and that by him having the red wine in the dish, this is too much of a variable in regard as to what is truly going on inside of Morgellons.  I am seeing the exact same growth in my trap glasses of wine set out for the gnats to climb into and drown!

What is odd is that a glass of a more expensive wine, that has been out the same amount of time, is not growing this green-tipped fungus.

I took a piece of the growth in the wine glass out and put it in a Petri Dish to see if our familiar objects show up.  I noticed that this piece of fungus was very thick and not able to photograph because of its thickness.  I am hoping that its outer edges might show some familiarity to what we have seen in the past in the next day or so?

I am also noting that Carnicom is using a blood agar and this medium would not allow him to photograph into, such as I do with the clear-ish agar that I use.

Fungus From Red Wine

Here are photos of the outer edges of a  piece of fungus removed from a  glass of standing red wine and that piece put into a Petri Dish with nutrient agar @100x… after 2 days growth:

 

We can see the biofilm spheres starting to form out of the fungus:

Back to my samples in red wine – Day 5:

It appears as if the carbon capsids are  becoming larger, I will do a comparison next:

 

A Comparison

To see if the size of the capsids are changing, here is a comparison from Day 2 to Day 5.  I took an easily identifiable piece to use as an example:

10/12/09 @100x:

10/15/09 @100x, three days growth:

We can start to see a small amount of growth happening in the capsid size.

Day 8:

 10_19_27

10_19_10

10_19_11

10_19_41

10_19_1

The piece of fungus removed from the standing wine glass is Morg-like, the fungus is green in color with red and blue hyphae.  

10_19_39

10_19_14

10_19_40

Day 9, We can see the micelles or liposomes are growing in size:

10_19_11 10_19_7 10_19_8 10_19_9 10_19_10

This piece of red wine/saliva swish that has the cells in it have grown very little, Day 9:

10_19_41

As compared to Day 2:

10_13_511

A new creation coming out of a sphere or is the red wine sample producing the spheres?

10_23_5

10_23_6 

In the meantime, the piece of fungus that was in a glass of red wine is starting to grow the red and blue hyphaed green fungus, this is Day 5.

10_19_40 10_19_34 10_19_35 10_19_36 10_19_37 10_19_38 10_19_39

These next photos show where the fungus/yeast used in the red wine (cheese, bread, beer…) making process is the Morgellons Mystery Fungus, Day 9:

10_23_13 10_23_0 10_23_1 10_23_2 10_23_3 10_23_4 10_23_8 10_23_9

The yeast most commonly used in certain foods is saccharomyces cerevisiae, this is a Generally Regarded As Safe (GRAS) fungus/yeast and that is why our hospital tests are not showing this fungus in our biopsies or cultures… it is probably not in their data banks to do a comparison to.

What’s Up With Our Hair?

 

I’ve had this ‘beauty mark’  since birth, yes, it’s right there on my chin next to my beautiful lips…

Here it is!

just like the ones the movie stars used to draw on with those pencils and of course, those others with natural born beauty such as myself…

Well… invariably when I first started having evident Morg symptoms, and one of the symptoms is mystery, wild, white and black hairs that start popping out of our bodies in random places, including from our beauty moles or marks. 

Several years ago, there was one black wild hair that appeared, and then sometime afterward, there were two… one black and the other white, and now, it’s up to four… two of each.  Tonight while plucking them out, I decided to take a look with the scope.

I photographed a black one first.  I suppose this is the root end…?  must be, the other end is narrower…

Immediately, I notice plant-like shoots coming from the hair stem…

My hair looks more like a tree branch…

This is the other end:

Then I pulled out a white one…  immediately under the scope, there was movement inside the shaft!! 

 

I quickly changed to movie mode, in the time it took to change the software around, you can see where this area has filled up.  See the white spot in the photo above, use that as a reference, this is the movie below:

http://picasaweb.google.com/dzandi1/20091010Hair?authkey=Gv1sRgCKPE7qyi3bjx8gE#5391106000371163954

What has happened to our hair… is there something now living in our hair shafts?  !!!

My beauty… gone…

gone with the wind… oh Rhett!!…

Morgellons In Our Blood – Part 1

 

I haven’t looked at our blood under the microscope yet and curiously decided to culture a fellow Morgie’s blood to see what shows up.

Taking a new Petri dish with nutrient agar, washing their hands prior and sterilizing a regular sewing needle, using a cotton ball and disinfecting their fingertip and pricking it to cause it to bleed and placing that finger on a section of the agar.  Photos below show the blood smear the next day, no dyes are used to photograph.

Day 1

Blood smear cultured on 10/5/09, photographed on 10/6, shows 1 day growth.  I am calling this the top part of the smear:

Photo 1 at 100x:

I can see that the red blood cells in the center of this outline are coursing with energy.

Photo 1 at 450x:

Overall, it is a fairly uneventful dish, with little activity on day 1.    Below is the ‘tail end’ of the smear and with another ‘tail end’ nearby:

 

Day 3

Three days from culture on 10/8, these are my observations below.  Out of the ‘mouth’ of Photo 1 the smear produces a sphere, you can see the red/pink blood cells:

I took this ‘mouth’ area at 100x indicated in the box below, and  photographed it at 450x:

This is a close up shot at 450x of this ‘mouth’ area:

 

I thought this green orb below that appears to be forming inside the blood cells was interesting, it is seen several times:

Here’s another photo of a different green orb next to a sphere as its ‘moon’:

There are several pieces of debris specks inside the blood cell area:

I’ve seen this a few times in the past, where a fiber will be resting on top of a sphere… some sort of co-dependant relationship…

There are lots of ‘moons’ orbiting bigger spheres:

A most interesting development below, it appears as if the blood is growing white, fuzzy ‘stuff’ from it, perhaps it is our white, fuzzy ‘fungus’?   It is too early to draw any conclusions, but it is definitely something to keep an eye on:

A close up photo of this area, doesn’t it looks like as if there are tiny, white, hair-like growths appearing?:

Day 4

Once again we see the many ways the sphere reproduces:

The green orbs appear to be how the spheres form initially:

And, most interesting of all, the ‘mouth’ is now piercing the sphere, the area in the box below is approximately where we are looking:

Day 1 @ 100x:

Day 3 @ 100x:

Day 4 @100x, notice how this sphere has almost doubled in size?:

Note:  I did not notice that the blood had any ‘fuzziness’ to it today.

Day 5

The ‘mouth’ part continues to spike further and further into the sphere.

This I noticed by focusing in and out, which is a technique used to show hidden attributes,  this sphere below is photographed three times in and out of focus:

Taking the same sphere slightly out of focus below:

We can now see how it looks more like a virus?  Not all of the spheres showed this… just a few…

For instance, this one below doesn’t show this viral looking aspect when I focus in and out.  This is very Portabella Mushroom-looking…

Elsewhere in the dish, away from the blood speck area, our same white, fuzzy fungus has formed:

In a fairly large circular biofilmish growth in the dish,  I see this unusual pattern that I have seen before… it takes several photos to capture it:

Day 6

The weird ‘spiking’ continues to penetrate and enlarge as if it is impregnating the sphere:

On the other side of the sphere it is mushroom like and is splitting:

There are definitely two different spheres shown here, this first one is lighter in color, more whitish, and its edges are more scalloped:

The second one is more mushroom like and shows up more like a virus when taken out of focus, this sphere is in the blood cells:

This below is the same sphere as above taken out of focus:

The blood cells are more evident, @ 100x:

10_11_241

 Day 7

The piercing on Day 7… @ 100x:

Other Day 7 photos for comparisons:

The fungus is beginning to creep in onto the spheres:

To be continued… in Part 2
