MORGELLONS: GROWTH CAPTURED

MORGELLONS: GROWTH CAPTURED

A time lapse video under the microscope has been developed and presented on this page which demonstrates the cultured growth pattern and behavior of a primary pathogenic form that is in direct association with the so-called "Morgellons" condition. The time lapse video covers a period of approximately six hours and compresses the time into approximately one minute with 30 frames. From the discovery shown here, it would appear that the encasing filament serves to provide feeder or extension filaments which serve to extend the growth of the pathogen. The estimated growth rate of the extension filaments on this particular culture is on the order of 50 microns per hour, or roughly the width of a thin human hair per hour. This report continues to add valuable knowledge on the morphology, characteristics and behavior of at least some of the pathogenic forms that are strongly associated with the so-called "Morgellons" condition.
MORGELLONS: FIRST OBSERVATIONS

MORGELLONS: FIRST OBSERVATIONS

After lengthy discussions with a citizen with Morgellons, Carnicom received carefully packaged fiber samples from this person for study. The subject has provided numerous samples to a medical doctor in the past but no specific response, descriptions, photos or analysis have apparently been provided in return. One of the goals of this paper is to provide the reader with a sense of scale of these fibers, and to show a progression from the original materials as they exist from the body to the highest magnification possible with Carnicom’s equipment. Initial photographs of the filaments show little detail, but are shown also with control photographs of hair and blood cells to give a sense of scale and measurement. Further higher power microscope images show that the fibers have a much more complicated internal structure than was discernible at low magnification. These additional images appear to show innumerable sub-fibers inside the major filament. Of particular concern is that in one of the photographs of greater translucency, internal, much smaller structures of elliptical form exist. This begins to strongly suggest a biological nature to the fibers. The last major discovery by observation at this point is what appears to a "budding" structure of some sort. These structures contain two further components within. The first of these are spherical or elliptical structures at the micron level within an encasing, translucent shell. In addition, innumerable fibers at the sub-micron level emerge from the budding structure.
SUB-MICRON PARTICULATES ISOLATED

SUB-MICRON PARTICULATES ISOLATED

Current research involves a process of collection of atmospheric samples with the use of a plate ionizing filter from a citizen’s HEPA filter. This material is unusual in nature and is composed of two primary forms : fairly uniform fibrous and crystalline/powder materials. This material has been collected, placed into solution and subjected to electrolysis. A definite and repeatable chemical reaction does take place, which results in the formation of a highly insoluble precipitate. The best current analysis of that material positively identifies the existence of a metallic salt. The best analysis of the nature of that metallic salt is that of a barium compound which releases positive metallic ions in solution. In addition, direct visible observation of the precipitate under extremely high magnification detects the presence of reasonably uniform spherical sub-micron particulates within the electrolysis result. The specific gravity of these particulates is greater than that of water. Pictures of these samples are attached in this work.  It has long been postulated that the size of the aerosols under examination is in the sub-micron range, and that extremely high magnification will be necessary for detection. The size range of the aerosols has previously been estimated at approximately 0.5 microns in size as a result of atmospheric light effects; this conforms to the current observations.
A MEETING

A MEETING

An unidentified source has written to Clifford Carnicom about a meeting he had with a well-placed military source about at least one aspect of the aerosol programs, and makes significant claims about these operations. Assertions made by this source: - The aerosols programs are a joint effort by the Pentagon and pharmaceutical industry - The goal is to test biological diseases on an unsuspecting population - The bacteria and viruses sprayed are freeze dried and attached to fine filaments for dispersal - The metals released along with the diseases heat up from the sun, creating a perfect environment for the bacteria and viruses to thrive in the air supply - Most countries being sprayed are unaware of these programs - The ultimate goal is to control all populations through accurate and directed spraying of disease and drugs UPDATE - August 17, 2003 – The researcher who initially wrote to Carnicom above chimed in on the Carnicom web page to make further points about what has been revealed. Additional thoughts from this researcher include questioning why a top respiratory doctor told people on television not to exercise outside, and that respiratory disease has gone from eighth to fourth as a leading cause of death.

THE MONITORS OF JGI

The United States Department of Energy (DOE) Joint Genome Institute (JGI), associated with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, has recently demonstrated a heightened interest in the research materials being made available on the carnicom.com website. This interest appears to correlate with a recent presentation on the topic of atmospheric tests conducted for the presence of mold, found at the previous Carnicom paper titled ATMOSPHERIC MOLD IS ABUNDANT (dated March 14, 2003). The mission statement for the Joint Genome Institute (JGI) is attached on this page, and a link to the JGI microbial genomic programs information is included as well.
ERYTHROCYTES, MATRIX & MOTILE BACTERIA

ERYTHROCYTES, MATRIX & MOTILE BACTERIA

After again conducting microscopic sessions upon particulates collected from an outdoor HEPA filter in Santa Fe, NM in 2002 and finding unexpected biological components, Carnicom further asks the professional community for input to his findings. Images from this series of analysis, as well as those from earlier tests are presented, as are links to the previous research papers showing very similar results to this analysis and a description of the collection process used to collect these samples. NOTE: After asking for input from the professional community for help in analyzing these samples, a citizen on the Carnicom.com message board wrote giving input to the analysis that Carnicom has presented in this page. This person suggested that what Carnicom has been seeing in these samples is not bacteria, based on the fact that the samples were put into distilled water, and that red blood cells, when put in distilled water, will burst within seconds. The writer further claims that red blood cells are not ‘designed to live in a neutral environment’, but rather in salty environments, and that the samples look like pollen. Carnicom’s response to these claims is to seek further professional input. A main inconsistency in the citizen’s claims above include the fact that these appear to be altered (desiccated) blood cells, and such wouldn’t necessarily conform to the same reaction as normal red blood cells. Further modifications may have been applied to these cells as well, making them not susceptible to being destroyed by being placed in distilled water.
ERYTHROCYTES: MAY 22

ERYTHROCYTES: MAY 22

Employing the method or electrostatic precipitation, a 7th out of 8 atmospheric samples collected in Santa Fe, New Mexico on May 22, 2001, positively identifies erythrocytes (red blood cells) being in the sample. Images of these cells are included in this work, magnified approximately 5000x.
ERYTHROCYTES: POSITIVE VISUAL IDENTIFICATION

ERYTHROCYTES: POSITIVE VISUAL IDENTIFICATION

Further testing of air samples from Santa Fe, New Mexico provides positive visual identification of the presence of erythrocytes (red blood cells). The magnification in this analysis (approximately 5000x) makes the case that biological components are now a regular feature of the atmosphere that we all breathe. These red blood cells, along with the particulate matter in the air, make the case for realizing these aerosol programs are crimes of the highest order being perpetrated on innocent citizens.
COLORADO HEPA BIOLOGICALS CONFIRMED

COLORADO HEPA BIOLOGICALS CONFIRMED

A second HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter sample was received from Aspen, Colorado and was analyzed under microscope. This HEPA filter ran for five days approximately 15 feet above ground. This filter shows the frequent presence of biological materials. Visual analysis of the cellular materials appear so show erythrocytes (red blood cells), based on the uniformity, color, size and bi-concave nature of the cells. The results of this analysis show these samples to be exactly identical to the first HEPA filter analysis done in an earlier paper (HEPA BIOLOGICALS CONFIRMED). Two earlier airborne samples of fibrous samples also show the presence of similar biological components. These results again demonstrate the urgent need for independent, professional and verifiable biological identification and medical analysis of the samples which are being disclosed. Considering these two samples of biologicals are identical, from locations 250 miles apart in the US, obviates the urgency for this sampling process to be extended across the entire nation.
HEPA BIOLOGICALS CONFIRMED

HEPA BIOLOGICALS CONFIRMED

Testing with a standard HEPA air filter revealed the existence of biological components in the atmosphere. The air filter was placed 10 feet off the ground, within a non-agricultural, non-industrial, high desert rural area, and the exposure time for the test was one week. The results of this work indicate biological components which again satisfy all the visual characteristics of red blood cells in air samples taken. The methods used in this testing of filtering and identification are now available to all citizens with modest means. The identification of the cell types found, and an accountability for their existence is of critical importance to the public welfare, and it is hoped that independent researchers, professionals and activists will contribute to that cause.
IDENTICAL FIBER SAMPLES RECEIVED

IDENTICAL FIBER SAMPLES RECEIVED

This work contains fiber samples collected and more pictures of fiber samples that were sent to Carnicom from a witness in Joseph, Oregon on October 2, 2000. These samples are identical in both appearance and characteristic to those discussed in previous Carnicom papers. All four samples collected so far have been reviewed under a microscope, and these new samples are identical to those that were sent to the US EPA. These samples have been found to contain significant biological components.
ADDITIONAL BIOLOGICAL COMPONENTS IDENTIFIED

ADDITIONAL BIOLOGICAL COMPONENTS IDENTIFIED

Microscopy stills are attached in this paper from fiber samples that had been previously evaluated in an earlier Carnicom paper named BIOLOGICAL COMPONENTS IDENTIFIED that was published on May 11, 2000. Though a portion of this same fiber sample was sent to EPA Administrator Carol M. Browner six months prior to this paper, to date, Ms. Browner refuses to identify the material in this sample.
BIOLOGICAL COMPONENTS IDENTIFIED

BIOLOGICAL COMPONENTS IDENTIFIED

Further testing of ground fiber samples previously collected and analyzed (see papers titled AEROSOL GROUND SAMPLES) revealed biological components in the fibers - numerous red blood cells, white blood cells, and unidentified cell types have been found in the ground samples. The red blood cells, readily visible after being subjected to immersion oil, appear to possibly be of a freeze dried or desiccated nature. Numerous pictures from the microscope video show these biological as well as unidentified components. The surfaces of the cells appear to be modified in some way, but electron microscopy will likely be required to establish further detail.
AEROSOL GROUND SAMPLES : MICROSCOPIC FIBERS REVEALED

AEROSOL GROUND SAMPLES : MICROSCOPIC FIBERS REVEALED

Eyewitness accounts of finding unusual fiber materials on the ground have been accumulated over the past year and more in direct connection with unusual aircraft activity. As might be expected, there are repeated, frequent and widespread accounts of respiratory distress and allergic reactions reported in association with such aircraft activity. This paper continues previous research on and presents microscopic views of suspected chemtrail ground samples collected in November and December 1999. Two identical ground fiber samples (one from Sacramento, CA, and one from eastern Oregon) were received, analyzed and compared to synthetic and natural fibers, such as human hair, wool, silk, spider webs, cotton and more. Though found in locations hundreds of miles apart, these two ground fibers exhibited identical characteristics in all respects down to the microscopic level. Based on tests outlined in this paper, it has been demonstrated that the ground sample fibers cannot be identified as any known or common natural or synthetic fiber.
