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.
A pathogenic form that appears to be directly associated with the so-called "Morgellon's condition” has now been successfully, repeatedly and positively cultured from numerous independent dental filament samples over a protracted period of time. Confirmation of this result had been postponed until it became clear that the findings could be duplicated; this is now the case. High magnification microscopic images are provided to the reader for further understanding of what is being presented and the implications of this work. This work is important in that it provides a basis for the controlled study, observation, examination and modification of a primary pathogenic form that appears to underlie the existence of the so-called "Morgellon's" condition. It is reiterated that the general population appears to be subject to the existence of the pathogen, regardless of whether certain skin "anomalies" are present or not. As it is unlikely that Carnicom will have the time or resources to conduct the studies that are called for going forward in this research, it needs to be known that proper resources are a serious issue at this point. The public must now share in the responsibility for the progress (or the lack of it) that is dictated by this report.
Work has been conducted over the past one to two months that appears to be important and it may have significant impact on current research into pathogens being found in samples discussed in the most recent Carnicom papers. It appears as though a primary pathogenic form under evaluation that is associated with the so-called "Morgellon’s" condition may have been successfully cultured. If this proves to be the case, it offers the potential to begin very serious research on the methods to control, inhibit, reduce or eliminate the pathogenic forms within the human body. Unknown pathogens are difficult to identify, treat and remove if they exist only within the body; there is tremendous benefit if such pathogens can be grown or developed in a culture medium under controlled conditions. This report may offer a pathway to that process. Further research at this time continues to show identical pathogens in samples that are viewed under an enhanced microscope setup, that without such enhancement, these images and what they reveal would not be possible. This would not have allowed the progress in this area of study by Carnicom that will possibly have tremendous positive implications for all of humanity.
A significant set of observations has taken place in May 2007, as another major aerosol operation was conducted over the skies of the Santa Fe, New Mexico region. Pictures taken of this operation, and a more detailed visual examination of some of these emissions have been made than in previous observations; mechanical, artificial and systematic introduction of the aerosols appears evident. There are two primary observed anomalies at this time: the first of these is the presence of what may be referred to as "core tracks" (ribbon-like; possibly filamentous in nature) in the spray lines, and the second is the repeated presence of a characteristic "pulse" emission. The behavior and character of these anomalies is now being presented and an adequate basis for further examination exists with this article. These characteristics are completely out of accordance with any claims of meteorological discontinuities in the atmosphere, any uniform fluid or gas dynamic analysis, and any unmodified combustive process. It is apparent that distributions of discrete material into the atmosphere are taking place.
Further microscopy analysis of biological materials collected with HEPA air filters is presented here, as a continuation of roughly five years of similar study by Clifford Carnicom. Pictures of biological growths in petri dishes after various incubation periods are attached for consideration by others in identifying these biologicals. Of note is the striking difference between the control group growth, which remains constant over time, and the cultures developed from HEPA-weak saline solution that continue to flourish.
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.
Large numbers of colonies of mold have evolved during the incubation period in what is the second atmospheric test for molds discussed on this page. This second mold test (see the Carnicom paper on the first test titled ATMOSPHERIC MOLD IS ABUNDANT dated March 14, 2003) was conducted in a dry high desert environment on a day of low wind and clear skies. Mold propagation should be unsuitable under these conditions, yet there were at least 40 counted in this test. Molds are now classified as one of the leading causes of allergies, and almost all chronic sinus infections are a result of molds.
Citizens may wish to act upon the health implications of these findings, as well as the documented increase that has occurred in the ailments mentioned above. It is hoped that additional testing will now begin by citizens in various locations, indoors and outdoors, to assess the extent and nature of this environmental condition. It appears likely that this test may be representative of the general state of affairs.
An atmospheric test specific to mold detection has been conducted on March 10, 2003 in rural Santa Fe, New Mexico. The results appear to indicate a sufficient cause for concern, as a large number of colonies of several species of mold (Aspergillus, Penicillum, Cladosporium, and Rhizopus) have evolved during the incubation period in a dry high desert environment during a period of extended low moisture. Several species are shown in images on this page. There is clear and direct association between the abundance of mold and respiratory, allergic and asthmatic conditions in humans. It is hoped that additional testing will be commenced by citizens across the nation and globe using indoor and outdoor samples to assess the extent and nature of this environmental condition. Those knowledgeable in mycology are requested to offer their expertise in this matter.
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.
This paper discusses the analysis of three atmospheric samples all containing biological components conducted in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2001. Biological components as an aspect of the aerosol operations up to this time have been considered as being of a limited nature, with their significance and relevance to overall agendas remaining unknown. The findings in this paper drastically alter that interpretation, and biological components must now be considered as a major and dominant consideration within the aerosol operations.
The methods of electrostatic precipitation outlined in this paper are now available for all researchers, professionals and activists across the nation to employ. The need to further conduct these tests and to perform the qualifying research is now paramount to the welfare of all citizens.
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.
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.
