This paper will outline specific, identifiable and repeatable growth stages of the cross-domain bacteria (CDB) and its associated forms. It will be seen that a wide variety of growth forms will ultimately emerge from what appears to be a simple, non-descript spherical living entity; as such the term 'pleomorphic' is fully justified in this presentation. This is the case even when the study is restricted to the most primitive form of existence (i.e., the CDB) and this sets the stage to for us anticipate a high level of survivability and adaptability for the organism. Thus far, this has certainly been proven to be the case, as the means to eradicate or destroy the organism in any meaningful way appears to be unavailable under the current state of knowledge.
A sufficient time period has elapsed to allow for the identification, classification and designation of a novel and ubiquitous life-form that is known to exist in association with the so-called "Morgellons" condition. This call has thus far gone unheeded within the scientific community and more rapid progress is required. It has been stated, by discovery (ref. The New Biology Jan 2014), that this informal nomenclature is no longer sufficient to characterize the situation; that of an extensive, repeating and culturable life form with known properties and characteristics.
A method has been established that shows promise of being effective in removing significant masses of biofilm that encapsulate large quantities of the "cross-domain bacteria" (CDB) as they have been identified and designated by this researcher. This method applies to oral cavities only and it is simple to investigate as to its efficacy. The identification of the CDB has been confirmed by microscopy; one unique feature of this organism is the frequent co-linear arrangement of the bacteria within an encasing filament. The various stages of growth of this life form have been documented extensively on this site, and a progression of development is understood. The term "Morgellons" as popularly used, is insufficient to characterize both the uniqueness of the life form and its ubiquity in the environment. The term "cross-domain bacteria" (i.e., CDB) has been established as being intrinsic to the origin of the life form; attention has been called to the the fact that the scientific nomenclature for this 'new biology' remains woefully inadequate. Any perception that this so-called "condition" is restricted to the human species is false; planetary consequences are before us. Please refer to earlier discussions that elevate the seriousness of this need for increased participation by the scientific and health communities.
Inhibition of growth of the so-called "Morgellons" condition in a cultured environment has been achieved. The primary agents of reduction here, both literally and chemically, are a series of powerful antioxidants. These include ascorbic acid (vitamin C), N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) and glutathione. The photograph below shows the result of a culturing process which has been subjected to these antioxidants and their impact upon growth; the effects are rapid and repeatable. The source of this culture is the result of a series of incubation, collection, isolation, extraction and purification processes applied to previous cultures. The original cultures are based upon the use of a variety of human, animal and plant samples, each of which produces identical growth forms. One of many precedents for this work is contained within a previous paper entitled, "Morgellons : A Discovery and A Proposal" (Feb 2010). The basis of the current work is a significant advancement in the development of culture methods.
It is generally perceived that the so-called "Morgellons" issue is primarily, if not exclusively, a human actually represents a fundamental change in the state condition. It is not. It will be found that this condition evidence now indicates and demonstrates that there and nature of biology as it is known on this earth. The is, at the heart of the "condition", a new growth form that transcends, as a minimum, the plant and animal boundaries.
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.
A new, or modified, form of cultured growth has been developed from human oral filament samples that are characteristic of the so-called "Morgellons" condition. One of the more important findings of this current research is that the application of certain frequencies, or their harmonics, may play a highly significant role in the various manifestations (rate of growth, etc.) that the underlying "organism" may assume. The discovery reported here adds a new layer of complexity to the research that has been discussed on this site. The circumstances of growth are identical to that of previous work, i.e., the introduction of human oral filament samples within a red wine base; what differs is the illumination of the petri culture dishes with light of a specific frequency chosen from earlier absorption analysis. It will be noticed that a strong and sharp absorption peak at approximately 375 nanometers (nm) has been identified in the previous Carnicom report titled ' THE BIGGEST CRIME OF ALL TIME’ (dated March 1, 2011); this corresponds to the blue portion of the visible light spectrum. The phases of this explosive growth from this sample being subjected to this light frequency is imaged and presented on this page.
A continuing discussion of the characteristics of filament samples discovered by Clifford Carnicom and others is presented here. It is reiterated that an environmental source, at least in part, for specific biological organisms that are under scrutiny in association with the so-called "Morgellons" condition, has been identified. This source is the unusual airborne filament sample that was sent in June of 2000 to the Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for identification on behalf of the public welfare. This particular and same sample that was sent to the EPA has been successfully cultured and reproduced, and the culture growth exhibits the identical biological organisms, structure and chemistry of certain biological filaments that are under extensive study in association with the Morgellons condition.
The different cultured structures discussed above are described and pictured within this work as well. They are:
1) An encasing filament structure (containing an internal network of sub-micron filaments)
2) A chlamydia-like organism (Chlamydia pneumonia)
3) A pleomorphic form (Mycoplasma-like)
4) An erythrocytic form (red blood cell)
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.
A method of extracting DNA samples from living forms has been established. The protocol being followed is that from the Genetic Services Learning Center at the University of Utah1. The methods have been applied successfully to human and fruit samples. Equipment to examine the internal structure of the DNA samples is not available at this time; visual microscopy techniques at relatively high magnification (~10,000x) are available.
A partial summary of the research accumulated through this site on the so-called "Morgellons" issue is presented in this work. These summaries include fascinating, if not disturbing, details of the many years of work that Clifford Carnicom has put into his research that include the fact that: all individuals who participated in this research exhibit internal biological filaments and blood anomalies; the cultures produced from the internal biological filaments (dental samples of those participating in this research) have been shown to produce an erythrocytic (blood) form; and that the production of erythrocytic forms within direct biological filament samples and by culture is completely outside the known boundaries of conventional science and biology, and that it is repeatedly evident that these same erythrocytic forms can withstand (and even flourish in) extremely adverse environmental, chemical and thermal conditions. Many more details are provided in this long list of things known about Carnicom's work in this area.
