A proteinaceous complex that derives from oral filament cultures has been identified. This finding, along with the significant presence of iron within the same culture growths, is paramount in the understanding of the physical nature of the filaments characteristic of the condition.
Clifford Carnicom summarizes the findings on Morgellons and outlines eleven different aspects of the phenomenon that is worth further investigation.
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.
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.
The growth of the bacterial-like organisms that appear to be at the foundation of the so-called Morgellons condition has been positively inhibited. That is the discussion included at this juncture. Clifford Carnicom recognized in a previous work (see the paper titled ”MORGELLONS: A DISCOVERY AND A PROPOSAL” dated February 22, 2010) that these organism(s) thrive in an acidic environment in the presence of an hydroxyl radical and oxidizers in general, and that application of a set of specific antioxidants inhibit the growth of the organism(s) in the presence of the hydroxyl free radical and the creation of a more alkaline environment.
Detailed images of the testing performed by Carnicom in this experiment show side by side comparisons of both an inhibited culture growth of the chlamydia-like organism referenced and researched in many of Carnicom's papers, and those of an uninhibited growth. Note that the inhibited culture was subjected to the presence of three specific hydroxyl scavenging antioxidants at the beginning of the trial. The specific antioxidants being used are that of ascorbic acid, sodium citrate and glycerol. The reasoning behind choosing these specific antioxidants is outlined in the above mentioned Carnicom paper.
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.
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.
It has long been proposed that the aerosol operations have the effect of aggravating the heating condition of the planet, and that they show no prospect for cooling the earth. This is in direct contradiction to many of the popular notions that these operations are somehow intended for our benefit. The aerosols are being dispersed into the lower atmosphere, and it can be shown from this fact that they will indeed heat up the lower portion of the atmosphere. Global warming itself is defined as the heating of the lower atmosphere and earth. The notion that the aerosols are in some way cooling the planet is contradictory to direct observation and the examinations of physics. The current model examines the effects of deliberately introducing barium particulates into the lower atmosphere, and the subsequent contribution to the global warming problem. The results indicate that these particulates, even at rather modest concentration levels, can contribute in a real and significant way to the heating of the lower atmosphere. The graph presented in this work shows the expected interactions from 3 variables that relate to the global warming issue; these are: aerosol concentration, time and rise in temperature. As the model presented herein is intended to be reasonably conservative, the impact of the aerosol operations could be much greater than these results show.
The details of the Global Warming Model are presented on this page.
Recent work indicates the very real possibility of sources for interference in the metabolism of the potassium ion within the human body (potassium levels that are too low in the body may present medical difficulties such as heart failure, fatigue, muscular weakness and depression). This interference is based upon the detection of continuous and apparently artificial ELF (Extremely Low Frequency) propagation at 4Hz multiples. The fifth harmonic of this radiation, detected at 20Hz, corresponds to the cyclotronic frequency of the potassium ion in the mid latitude ranges of the globe. Readers are referred to a previous Carnicom article on this topic titled ’POTASSIUM INTERFERENCE IS EXPECTED’ (dated May 15, 2005), and to the work of Dr. Robert Becker for additional information on this subject. Upon further inquiry by Clifford Carnicom on the attempt to increase potassium levels in the diet has revealed some unexpected findings. It might be considered reasonable for an individual to seek out a potassium supplement, in addition to the investigation of changes in the diet. Such a search has been conducted by Carnicom...upon examining all potassium supplements at the local health food store, regardless of brand, Clifford soon noticed that no products were available that provided a level of potassium greater than 3% of the recommended daily allowance for potassium.
Stories of three different scenarios where testing laboratories terminated services for those seeking knowledge of the makeup of samples sent to them are told in this paper. One was for a concerned citizen who had a rainwater sample tested, and had sent the results to Clifford Carnicom, which were published on the Carnicom website. After publication, this particular lab refused to do further testing for this individual, and gave no indication as to why they had made such a decision. Carnicom himself had a similar situation occur when he had an atmospheric fiber sample tested by a different lab...services were terminated when the results of the lab report were challenged and refuted in a personal visit by this Carnicom. Upon making the first two of nine contradictions known to the principal of that company, this owner stated that "this discussion is now over".
A third encounter happened when the career of a state criminal forensic scientist was threatened when an interest was expressed by that individual to assist in the identification of a certain atmospheric fibrous sample. It was stated in that case that the career of that individual and all post-retirement benefits of the forensicist would be terminated if any involvement in identification were to take place. The act of laboratory identification was never completed.
It is shown within this report that the potassium ion is specifically expected to incur biological interference within people over large regions of the earth's surface. This is due to the fact that the fifth harmonic of the ELF that has been repeatedly measured over a period of several years corresponds to the cyclotronic resonant frequency of potassium. This fifth harmonic, along with numerous other harmonics is a regular component of the ELF radiation that under measurement at this time. This expected interference, albeit intentional or not, can be shown to exist based upon the principles and physics of cyclotronic resonance, a phenomenon well established in classical electromagnetic theory. The emphasis in this report is upon the potassium ion, which is of fundamental importance to human health. Although there are additional ions which deserve discussion at a later point, the primary ranking of potassium in human biology is of special concern. Additional discussion on this page outlines the definition of cyclotronic resonance, as well as a mathematical model for determining the atomic number for an element (in this case potassium) that is affected by a particular cyclotronic frequency. And though such unique combinations, such as in this case with potassium, are not common, they do occur. They are of concern with respect to human biological function and interference, as these ions will absorb energy and can lead to the disruption of cellular ion exchange processes.
On this page, Clifford Carnicom explores the distinct possibility that observed and measured saline stress on plants and trees in the southwest United States is coming from the metals and salts being found in the aerosols that are continuing to be researched. This paper raises some questions that deserve fair consideration with respect to the massive global effects from the aerosol operations on observed plant and tree die-offs.
Discussed here are some observed plant and tree die-offs in the southwest U.S. starting around the beginning of 1999, when the aerosol operations began to be observed en masse in this area. As well, ground conductivity testing at various altitudes is detailed from further Carnicom research around this same time. One of the die-off discussions centers on the local grasslands in the extremely dry southwest. A second discussion ensues regarding the major die-off of the Pinyon Pines species in this same area. Though there are current theories to explain these situations, the salination of the soils appears to be a main cause. Conductivity readings (and correspondingly, ion concentrations) seem especially high in these areas of die-off.
It has already been reported in previous Carnicom papers that the expected effect from the introduced aerosols is to heat up the lower atmosphere, and not to cool it as many have attempted to promote under the guise of a secret but benevolent motive. Under the best of circumstances it can only be determined that the aerosols will aggravate the drought and warming problems, if not actually induce these very conditions. Reduced forage productivity is already expected in part from the specific heat and desiccation properties of the aerosols.
Clifford Carnicom discusses a series of conductivity tests conducted on recent heavy snowfall samples collected in New Mexico and Arizona in 2005, which have refocused attention on the electrolytic, ionic and conductive properties of environmental samples in connection with the aerosol operations. This report has been received and documents unusually high levels of calcium and potassium within a rain sample, where previous work has demonstrated unexpected levels of barium and magnesium.
Discussion in this work ensues and outlines conductivity testing on these samples, where conductivity is a means to measure the ionic concentration within a solution. Conductivity is proportional to ionic concentration, and the results of this testing shows the increased conductivity of the atmosphere from having these salts dispersed in the aerosol operations. This discussion also describes the difficulty of performing conductivity testing because of the concept of 'ohmic heating', extrapolates the testing results to calculate the volume of these ionic salts within the regional atmosphere, and considerations to what the implications are of having these elements in our air, land and water.
A laboratory analysis of a rainwater sample from a rural location in the midwestern U.S. has been received by Clifford Carnicom, and reveals extremely high levels of potassium and calcium within the sample. Examination of the aerosol issue has, almost from the beginning, focused on the important properties of such elements of Groups I and II of the periodic table. The attention has arisen because of the ease by which such elements are ionized. This ionization will take place in the majority of cases quite readily with the energy available from ultra-violet light and, in some cases, from visible light alone. Candidates for further and future testing, include strontium, aluminum and titanium. A partial list of the effects of ion disturbances upon human health are discussed in this work, and include Impairment of the body's ability to absorb oxygen, the development of allergies, high levels of serotonin in the bloodstream, and a reduction in the body's ability to filter airborne contaminants from lung tissue. Direct research from this site alone now documents unexpected levels of calcium, magnesium, potassium and barium. The acquisition of an ion counter will be a valuable instrument to further this research; if anyone is in a position to provide or loan this device please feel free to contact Clifford Carnicom.
