How Morgellons Is Formed

 

IDENTIFICATION and PROCESS BEHIND FORMATION OF THE MORGELLONS SPHERES FROM FIBERS

These photos show how certain fibers bend to form the circular vesicles:

"The organisms are characterise by a distinc molecular signature at the level of the SSU rRNA gene “YCTATCYKYCTGGTGAKRCG” corresponding to the homolog position 691 of the Jo1353 sequence of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and specific to the taxon.
Families: Archaeosporaceae (Apendicispora, Archaeospora, Intraspora) and Geosiphonaceae (Geosiphon)"

This is also the genus and species of the fungi believed to be involved in Morgellons, photo comparisons to follow.

Morgellons Is Partially the Frog Fungus

 

Morgellons Is Partially the Frog Fungus  Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis or Chytrid

I’m looking for Stock Photos of Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis on the Web to see if I can match them with my microscopic photos of cultured human Morgellons samples.  

http://www.esf.edu/efb/brunner/research.htm

"Development of Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis zoospores."

The name of the photograph above is "ChytridDevelopment.png", this suggests that this is how the Chytrid species develops overall, more research is required at this time.

Below is a comparison from human ear lesion, cultured in nutrient agar at 30 days growth at 100x:

I’m noticing that there aren’t too many good microscopic stock photos, but this one above is a good example to give us an indication that Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis or a Chytrid fungus species is most likely involved as one of the mystery Morgellons fungi.

Morgellons Is Zoonotic

 

 Frog / Koala Disease Related to Morgellons

The first years in my home in Atlanta, I had so many frogs around it in the summertime, it was so loud and eerie sounding, like a bad Alfred Hitchcock frog movie.  Then the past 2 summers not a single frog, it was very quiet – I have to say, this is even more eerie!  There had always been frogs around my house – where did all the frogs go?

 http://jcm.asm.org/cgi/reprint/37/7/2378.pdf

"Chlamydia pneumoniae in a Free-Ranging Giant Barred Frog (Mixophyes iteratus) from Australia

The koala biovar of Chlamydia pneumoniae was identified in lung tissue from a sick, free-ranging giant barred frog (Mixophyes iteratus) by using electron microscopy, C. pneumoniae-specific fluorescent-antibody staining, cell culture, and sequencing of the ompA, ompB and 16S rRNA genes. This is the first report of a chlamydial strain infecting both a homeotherm and a poikilotherm and only the fourth host (in addition to humans, koalas, and horses) to be naturally infected with this species of Chlamydia. The frog had severe, chronic, mononuclear pneumonia and nonregenerative anemia and pancytopenia.

Chlamydia infections have been reported previously in captive amphibians, causing moderate to high mortality rates in various species…

There have also been a few case reports of Chlamydia infections in captive and wild reptiles. In all cases, however, the chlamydial species was either unknown or assumed to be C. psittaci. Here we report the first isolation of Chlamydia from a frog in Australia and demonstrate that it is identical to the C. pneumoniae strain that infects koalas."

I cannot link the photos in the .pdf file but look at the photograph in Figure 4 taken at 700nm, example "I", what they are calling example "condensed elementary bodies"; is very similar to a photograph that I took that I called "Mr. Brown Eye" cultured from my ear, 28 days growth, at 450x:

03_27_611 L Ear 450x Exp 2 - 2 28

"The chlamydial particles included dense elementary bodies (314 6 39 nm in diameter [mean 6 standard deviation; n 5 12]), intermediate bodies (371 6 44 nm [n 5 12]), and numerous dividing reticulate bodies (537 6 130 nm [n 5 12]) (Fig. 4). The round elementary bodies had eccentric nuclei and a narrow or nonexistent periplasmic space. Mitochondria were not associated with the inclusion membrane. These ultrastructural characteristics are consistent with those of C. pneumoniae (14).

Several studies have reported the very high genetic similarity of human C. pneumoniae strains (5) and also the clonality of koala C. pneumoniae strains (24), suggesting a possible recent divergence of these biovars. It is possible that the infection of a wild frog described in this report was an isolated incident, or alternatively, increased testing may show that amphibians are commonly infected with C. pneumoniae and that they are a natural reservoir for this species."

We need to look at the various animals that are becoming sick in nature at this time to see if there is a correlation between their disease and ours, one inclusive of the bats, bees, frogs, and we need to especially look at what has happened to the koala and frogs with this Chlamydia aspect.  

Once again, we have GIANT cells involved in our disease, look at  "Mr. Brown Eye"; in the photo below, now at 100x, he’s bulging out of the frame!  I have shown you thousands of photos of GIANT spheres taken at 100x. 

03_27_201 L Ear 100x Exp 2 - 2 28

The cell infecting the koala and frog are also GIANT C. pneumonia cells called "large inclusions"

Koala Biovar of Chlamydia pneumoniae Infects Human and Koala Monocytes and Induces Increased Uptake of Lipids In Vitro

http://iai.asm.org/cgi/content/abstract/69/12/7894

"We examined the ability of the koala biovar of Chlamydia pneumoniae to infect both Hep-2 cells and human monocytes and the effect of infection on the formation of foam cells. The koala biovar produced large inclusions in both human and koala monocytes and in Hep-2 cells."

It looks highly probable that those of us with evident Morgellons have a disease similar to what is eliminating the frog and koala populations.   We also need to look at the diminishing butterfly, bees, amphibians, and bats.

Morgellons ‘Fibers’ Turn Into Spheres

 

Clathrin Coated Vesicles
Formed from Fibers

While studying this Chlamydia .pdf:

http://www.chlamydiae.com/docs/biology/biol_entry.asp

it opened a lot of doors for me – we now have names for some of the artifacts we’ve been seeing and proves some of the theory that we have proposed is most likely happening, such as; we have HeLa cells, photos to show this aspect later.

Figure 2.

"Fig 2. A Chlamydia trachomatis elementary body (EB) in the process of entry into a HeLa cell. Tannic acid stained to enhance visualisation of chlathrin. Note the clearly demarcated outer envelope of the EB and the surrounding membrane (m) of the vacuole. Also note how small the clathrin coated pit (ccp) is compared to the chlamydial endosome. The bar represents 0.1 microns."

We now have a name for our ‘carbon-looking balls’:

08_29_301

The ‘balls’ that are inside of the fungus gnat larvae @100x:

08_13_411

The same ones inside of our nematodes, Urine at 600x:

03_20_411

They are called a clathrin coated pit, labeled "ccp" in the diagram above.

If we research the clathrin coated pit, we see how certain  fibers form these spheres:

These photos show how certain fibers bend to form the circular vesicles:
