We now begin the final phase of this paper, and this is to introduce, recall and compile a host of strategies and considerations that may be helpful to mitigate some of the impacts upon health by the Morgellons condition. Some of the work that has been done previously will also be incorporated into and repeated within this section; much of this work remains especially valuable and relevant here as well. It is important to understand that this information is derived from an individual research standpoint only, and that it does not represent any medical advice or diagnosis whatsoever.
We now have a puzzle before all of us. We are likely to have some of the pieces that make up the whole, but we must all work on putting the pieces together. Infrared spectrometry alone cannot do this; additional resources, execution and smart thought will be required. The earlier this puzzle is solved in detail, the better we will all be for it. I can only ask you to join in the crusade. Until that necessary level of understanding is achieved, I will continue to offer my own interpretations below. The discussion will progress through generalized structural interpretations, possible and projected health impacts, and the review of various strategies that may be worthwhile of consideration for mitigation of the anticipated and observed effects of the condition. It will again be emphasized and expressed that no medical advice or diagnosis is to be given here; each individual MUST pursue the counsel and advice of their own chosen health practitioner. The information provided here serves research purposes only.
A maximum magnification that combines optical and digital means has recently been achieved. The development allows, under suitable conditions and sampling, a magnification of images at a reasonable resolution up to a level of approximately 18,000 power. This method has been applied to the examination of human blood samples as they relate to the “Morgellon’s” condition. A brief introduction to the results of this recent advance in microscopy that uses relatively limited means and equipment is presented below. Relevant topics of research that arise from the study include the more detailed appearance of the bacterial-like structure that has been studied extensively by this research. The degradation of the red blood cell exterior membrane is also clearly apparent. The rather striking appearance of white blood cells, their behavior with respect to the bacterial-like component, and the internal structures that are visible within the white blood cells are of high interest. The importance of an active immune system against the bacterial-like encroachment is immediately obvious. Introductory live-blood video analysis recently performed further emphasizes the importance of the relationship of the immune system to the Morgellon’s condition. This level of awareness and visibility on the Morgellon’s condition is a direct result of these recent advances in microscopy methods and techniques. The availability of more advanced equipment, should it become available, will accelerate this discovery process.
Clifford Carnicom summarizes the findings on Morgellons and outlines eleven different aspects of the phenomenon that is worth further investigation.
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.
This paper discusses the Carnicom Institute's acquisition of a Beckman dual-beam spectrophotometer, and how this acquisition allowed for the spectral analysis of environmental filament samples and those associated with the Morgellon's condition are of one and the same nature. This association has given rise to Carnicom calling these events "the worst crime in human history".
Through testing of this spectrophotometer (several spectral analyses are shown on this page), Carnicom was able to verify its reliability and accuracy and usefulness in performing spectral analyses of various things, such as blood, copper sulfate, and environmental fiber samples. The fiber samples that Carnicom had sent to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other human oral filament samples that are representative of, and characteristic of, the so-called "Morgellons" condition.
The spectral analyses of both of these samples is identical, which again, allows for the claim to be made that The conclusion drawn from this particular research is that the nature of a repeatedly occurring environmental filament sample is identical in nature to that filament entity which is representative and characteristic of the "Morgellons" condition. This equality in nature has now been established unequivocally through three different methods: visually, metrically, and analytically.
As such, at least one source of the Morgellons condition has been identified and it is a repeating environmental source. It is now up to us as the inhabitants and stewards of this planet to comprehend the consequences and the significance of the conclusions herein.
1. Discussion of a recent research paper that discusses an environmental filament sample collected within the last few months. The relationship of the sample to examinations of the "Morgellons" condition will also be discussed.
2. A brief summary of the Carnicom Institute status and needs will be presented.
3. A question & answer session will be provided.
This paper is written to let it be known that the basic problems related to environmental contaminants disclosed over a decade ago remain essentially the same. An airborne filament sample has again been received by the Carnicom Institute, and this material is identical in form and structure to that sent to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for identification back in 2001. This agency refused identification of the material and declared that it was not their policy to do so. All available evidence indicates that the general populace has been subjected to the ingestion of these materials through airborne methods for more than a decade, at a minimum.
The filaments have been shown to contain (and continue to do so with this report) complex internal structures and biological components. These environmentally dispersed filaments have been shown to have a high degree of similarity and correlation with those that are characteristic of the so-called "Morgellons" condition. Human samples of filaments representative of the "Morgellons" condition have been cultured extensively, and they continue to show the same level of similarity with the environmental samples that are disclosed here. Images showing this filament tested contain the same fibrous and biological components analyzed in previous Carnicom papers (see for example the paper titled ”MORGELLONS: MORPHOLOGY CONFIRMED”, dated November 15, 2007).
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.
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.
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.
