Substantial evidence exists which proves not only the existence and presence of the "Morgellons" pathogen, but also how this organism uses iron from our blood for its proliferation and growth. This pathogen changes the iron in our blood from its ferrous form (Fe2+) to a ferric form(Fe3+). This change has a direct, negative impact on human health. The iron in human blood must be in the ferrous form in order for it to bind to the oxygen molecule. If our blood is not in this state then it will not bind to the oxygen molecule and human health will suffer. Proposed mitigation strategies are discussed.
Analysis shows that the primary organism (or pathogen) characteristic of the "Morgellons" condition, as isolated and identified by Clifford Carnicom, causes a significant biochemical change in the nature of human blood in which it resides. The dramatic change in the character of the blood has been presented through visible observation for several years, but this change is now objectively and directly measurable through the use of spectral analysis, and these changes are graphed and discussed in this paper. This change in the general character of human blood, as it has been measured from several individuals, is regarded as highly significant and expressive of a potential fundamental change in the human condition. Normal hemoglobin is analyzed under a spectrophotometer, and then graphed with different levels of concentrations of the organism. All matter reacts in a unique fashion to electromagnetic energy which, in this case, is visible light. Hemoglobin, (the primary protein in human blood cells), has such a unique and characteristic spectrum over the visible light range, and witnessing such dramatic alterations of the blood from this organism as compared to unaltered hemoglobin in these graphs give a sense of urgency for not only further research in this area, but also to alert more people to what is going on and to inspire action to be taken to get these organisms located and stopped.
Discussed in this paper are items such as: the role that iron appears to play in the growth of the underlying Morgellons organism, minimum conditions that allow the growth of this organism, identification of different growth forms related to these organisms, the unique spectral signature of this underlying organism indications of increased acidity in correlation with the Morgellons condition, and strategies to be considered in the mitigation of the growth of this organism. This paper continues to speak to the findings presented even further, with thought provoking ideas brought up, such as being able to use the spectral analysis of blood to determine the existence of the organism in living things, whether there is the possibility of getting the body to absorb more iron in order to ‘starve’ the organism of what iron is in the body (versus maybe lowering the amount of iron in the body to ‘starve’ the organism…a likely worse idea), and ways to reduce the growth of the organism with alkalization and nutrients.
Clifford Carnicom continues his work and assertions toward the reality that it is falsehood to make the claim that the so-called "Morgellons" condition is a highly restricted situation that affects only a few individuals that happen to manifest a certain set of skin conditions. To the contrary, Carnicom's work and research show that the general population appears be to subject to the condition and that the criteria used to establish its existence should be focused on biological change and manifestations WITHIN the body: i.e. - that filaments that occur within the body and the alteration of the blood are more suitable criteria upon which to establish the presence or absence of the Morgellon's condition. Samples of blood and saliva are tested at the end of this paper, with images showing the tests involving a 37 year old man, and an 8 year old child. The blood testing shows definite blood cell wall damage in both the participants' samples, with these images shown in this paper.
Testing on two canine blood samples (microscopy pictures of the canine blood cells are included on this page) sent to Clifford Carnicom reveal that both animals show the existence of the chlamydia-like organism within the blood and the serum in a fashion identical to that which has been repeatedly found in human blood samples. This research reveals that the consideration of biological symptoms, structures and characteristics of the Morgellons condition must now be extended to include other life forms beyond that of the human.
At a minimum, this consideration now extends to the mammalian segment of the animal kingdom. There is additional research (external DNA examination and culture analyses) underway which suggests that this discovery may extend further to include the plant kingdom or the food supply; further examinations are required to clarify the initial findings.
All work thus far indicates that the culture forms under examination encompass primary pathogenic forms that are in association with the so-called "Morgellons" condition. These are the the encasing filament, the chlamydia-like organism, the mycoplasma-like (pleomorphic) organism and under certain conditions, the erythrocytic (red blood cell) form. This list does not exclude current or future discoveries by any party that are sufficiently documented, but this list is inclusive as of this date.
An organism and a method that damages the condition of the blood has now been identified and it has been directly observed. The blood variations reported here are in direct association with the existence of and the severity of the so-called "Morgellons" condition.
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. The sample set of this report is relatively small and it must be extended. There is a remarkable consistency in the detailed observations and reports that have been made over a period of several years. This paper reaffirms the position of Clifford Carnicom that blood conditions and/or alterations appear to be at the crux of this situation. It is quite clear what type of work must be done to address the gravity of this situation, but additional resources must become available for this to take place. The current work now introduces the very real prospect or consideration that an artificial, or deliberately modified, process of the blood may have been introduced into the human condition. Elevated levels of research, aggressive involvement and appropriate resources must be dedicated and allocated to initiate progress on the many serious issues that have been disclosed.
This paper discusses and presents applications of three independent methods established that appear to confirm the presence of developing modified erythrocytes (red blood cells) within cultured dental samples. These samples exhibit the characteristics of the Morgellons condition as previously researched and identified. All individuals tested thus far have produced the dental filamentous materials, regardless of whether visible skin anomalies are present or not. The erythrocytic detection methods are:
1. Direct observation under the microscope at relatively high magnification (8000x - 10000x) using developed microscopy techniques.
2. The use of the Kastle-Meyer presumptive test (visual and microscopic, sensitive test) for blood, a method commonly used in forensics for blood identification.
3. The HEMASTIX (TMP) presumptive forensic test (very high sensitivity) commonly used for blood identification.
At this point, there are three more samples added to the research of Morgellon's that are showing the same basic apparent pathogenic forms as those previously observed. Added to this list of samples researched are: 1) the 5th match of this observation match set showing that an individual not outwardly manifesting Morgellon's symptoms can demonstrate the internal Morgellon's symptoms of blood disturbance and Chlamydia-like form - this individual, in images of a gum-dental infectious sample shows a 'hybrid' form not seen before...that is, both oblate and fibrous forms appear in the same sample; 2) the 6th sample shows a unique characteristic not seen yet - that is, that the filament, as opposed to encasing a sub-micron fibrous network, instead encases the Chlamydia-like organisms, demonstrating that a real possibility is taking place where there is morphing between all three reported forms in individuals. This subject's samples support the possibility that an individual not outwardly manifesting Morgellon's symptoms can demonstrate the Morgellon's symptoms of anomalous fibrous form; and 3) the 7th sampled individual's saliva sample has a highly abnormal mucous that this individual notices reacts to ultraviolet radiation. This sample shows that detected Chlamydia-like structures, filamentous and hybrid forms are being detected across major systems of the human body, including circulatory, digestive and skin.
Research on blood samples from numerous individuals continues in this paper, and there are three main points up to this time in the study of anomalies found in the blood of these people: 1) The preliminary assessment on the nature of the two primary structural forms within the blood appears that Chlamydiae or Chlamydiae-like organisms could be the leading candidate for investigation in the Morgellon's pursuit as well as in the investigation of the aerosol operations. Readers may wish to review the Carnicom paper titled ’MORGELLONS: AGENTS OF INFECTION’ (dated January 1, 2008); 2) The vast majority of blood samples observed are showing various degrees of anomalous form, and the degree of this damage appears to correspond directly to the number of anomalous structures that are found in any individual sample; and 3) The anomalies in the blood samples have transcended age....they have now been observed in the same form within the blood of a nine year old child.
Microscopic images of this young child are provided in this work in support of the above claims and observations. It can be noted in the images presented that cellular integrity damage is apparent in these photographs and sub-micron structures are often visible, and the degree of cellular damage appears to correspond directly to the number of chlamydia-like structures within the blood cells.
This paper discusses the finding that there is essentially identical form, size and structure between the airborne filament samples that have been reported on extensively over the years in connection with the aerosol operations, the morphology of at least one characteristic Morgellon's fiber and with a series of blood anomalies that have recently been documented. The three main topics and their critical points outlined with supporting graphic images in this critical paper include: 1) Morgellon's fibers and skin samples - At least one characteristic fiber form from the Morgellon's condition contains within it a rather remarkable and extensive sub-micron fibrous network. 2) Blood samples - There appears to a remarkable coincidence of form and similarity between the internal structure of the Morgellon's skin fiber and the anomalous form in the blood of the same individual. 3) Airborne fiber - The latest microphotographs, at much higher magnification than was originally available in previous Carnicom papers, of the airborne fibrous sample that was sent to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for identification. This now clearly implicates and questions the role and relationship of the airborne filaments to Morgellon's and the blood conditions that are currently under research.
