INTRODUCTION TO THE "MORGELLONS SYNDROME" (2007 - REVISED 2011)

Note: The Morgellons fibers have purely nothing do to with Chemtrails, Mars spores, self-assembling plastic fabrics, robots and nano-technology, or any delusional conceptions, nor they can be produced from mites, worms, flies, springtails, beetles etc. Most of such statements are just unprofessional and despicable!

PROLOGUE:

The purpose of this documentary and independent research site is to attempt to answer the questions of many people worldwide about this new disease historically called "Morgellons Syndrome" or "the silent and hidden U.S. epidemic" in various reports.

Despite all subsequent clarifications, the term “Morgellons,” also known as an "unknown skin disorder," somehow has become established in the public mind since 2002.

I do not agree at all with naming this disease that primitive, mystery-creating term "Morgellons" to describe what is probably just a borreliosis (Lyme disease) and an unknown subcutaneous mycosis or protozoal infection and symptoms resulting from them, e.g. skin symptoms. These symptoms actually represent just the tip of the iceberg of a systemic disease.

Note: Morgellons is not a skin disease!

Based on years of my own research, survey and conclusions, the genesis of the syndrome called Morgellons is first as an endogenous condition, most likely by a protozoonosis or endomycosis. The protozoonosis in turn is caused either by a filamentous protozoan, or an entomopathogenic fungus (a mycoinsecticide?) is the cause of an endomycosis and/or subcutaneous mycosis. Perhaps later, additional arthropodal or insect infestations due to insect-attracting fungal pheromones or open wounds can manifest.

But the main fact is that nearly all Morgellons disease symptoms (95%) are caused by a newly transmitted, or perhaps already present, borreliosis (Lyme disease) with some of its typical coinfections (Babesia, Bartonella, Anaplasma, Chlamydia, Mycoplasma, Myxozoa, etc.) and with the later rise of opportunistic infections (Candida, Epstein-Barr virus, cytomegalovirus, etc.) and further secondary infections (MRSA, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, etc.), due to a weakened immune system.

Furthermore, I would like to claim that Lyme disease, which is caused by the spirochetal bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi, is not only transmitted by ticks, but also by other vectors, such as worms (nematodes), lice, mosquitoes, fleas, termites (symbiont: Borrelia recurrentis) and many other kinds of insect and arthropod vectors. These vectors can live in symbiosis with spirochetes and now, perhaps, with this unknown fungus-like organism.

SHORT INFORMATION ON SPIROCHETE:

In any case, spirochetes are very extraordinary bacteria. They are highly transformable (pleomorphic) and are found everywhere in nature. They particularly inhabit aquatic environments, mud, moist dirt, soil and puddles, where they can settle in vectors mentioned above, living inside them in endosymbiosis or as ectosymbiont.

For example, many bacteria live inside the human gut, to digest our food. Termites and nematodes even farm spirochetes that together with protozoans (e.g. Mixotricha paradoxis) are involved to digest cellulose-based food for them, with their enzymes (e.g. cellulase).

The less harmful spirochetal variants are even found in the human mouth (oral spirochetes) and vaginal area (vaginal spirochetes), and other variants can be highly virulent, such as Treponema pallidum, which causes syphilis. All variations descent from the same prototype which has evolutionary mutated up to environmental influences.

There are many similarities regarding Morgellons and spirochetal infections. A very good research on oral spirochetes and pleomorphism, spore-like and granulate forms was done by the dentist William D. Nordquist.

Hidden Lyme disease:

Many people do not know that Lyme disease (Borrelia burgdorferi, spirochete bacteria) is contagious almost in the same manner as syphilis (Treponema pallidum, another spirochete bacteria) and Lyme can be also transmitted sexually.

Since Borrelia bacteria can invade all regions of the human body, it can be found not only in the bloodstream or as cystic forms (sleepers) in the connective tissue, but also in tears, sperm, urine, sputum and breast milk.

Otherwise, how else could babies get Lyme disease if they were never bitten by any insect, and the same applies for some adults! Note: Lyme disease is not only transmitted by ticks, but also by nematodes, mosquitoes, spiders, mites, lice and fleas, and certainly by entomopathogenic fungi (used from pesticide industry) that eat ticks.

According to a recent study in Europe, 1-10% of mosquitoes carry Borrelia bacteria. It is just a Russian roulette in the summer as to whether one of ten mosquito bites can cause Lyme disease.

Statistics reveal that probably 35-40% or more of the population of many countries already carry Lyme bacteria in their bodies. Government and medical authorities try to hide these facts, because the cost for blood tests and treatments would bankrupt any health system.

Worldwide, governments would rather deny this disease almost completely, and a few countries will not even admit that Lyme disease is real. Many persons are not even aware that they already carry these and other parasites inside their bodies.

BORRELIA INFECTION AND MORGELLONS FIBERS

Infection with the Borrelia genus of spirochete depends on whether and how these and other pathogens can enter directly into a wound. Usually, infection is a result of a bite from a bloodsucking vector, such as a tick, into which the contents of the vector's intestine can return flow into a host.

Another means of transmission is an insect or arthropod vector (e.g. mosquito) crushed onto a host's wound. The vector's saliva plays less of a role here, reducing the possibility of transmission, but virus or fungus contagion is possible.

However, the difference between conventional Lyme disease and Morgellons is that glassy, black or multicolored fibers are present. The fibers or black specks (colored fuzz balls covered or integrated with organic slime/biofilm) form and erupt in the initial infection stage, strengthen and proliferate after a longer period, then recede again, but much later, using various treatments.

These fibers arise mostly in bundles that resemble very typical hyphae accumulations (synnemata = derivation: threads together), to build up a fungal, protozoal or even bacterial fruiting body made of long filaments (e.g. Actinomycetes, Myxococcus xanthus).

Morgellons fuzz balls (synnemata?)

But there are also similarities to human infection symptoms and to the spherical or coil shapes of hyphae created by the fungus Coccidioides immitis and as well from Microsporidia and some biological fungicides (molds).

To conclude and based on my survey of the last 7 years (15,000 Morgellons afflicted), I would say generally:

"Whoever suffers from Lyme and related diseases does not usually suffer from Morgellons;

but whoever becomes sick with Morgellons does mostly suffer from Lyme disease!"

All information on this site is my own empirical research, based on field studies of human tissue and microscopic investigations of specimens; the ideas of many concerned individuals worldwide; and statistics or theories of various researchers and health authorities, gathered and analyzed. These and further theories are better defined and described by my own statistical data, microscopic pictures and continued research.

INFECTION CASES:

Particularly in the USA, where most cases of infection were initially recorded, most scientists are still in the dark regarding the cause of this disease. At least this disease is now somehow recognized and acknowledged by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the U.S. Congress also released money for further investigations in 2008.


DEPARTMENTS OF LABOR, HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, AND EDUCATION, AND RELATED AGENCIES APPROPRIATION BILL, 2008. REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON APPROPRIATIONS U.S. SENATE.

Morgellons Disease.— The Committee urges the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to study an unexplained skin condition commonly known as Morgellons Disease, which affects over 10,000 individuals with skin lesions, joint pain, and neurological difficulties, among other symptoms. The Committee encourages the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to work as quickly as possible to plan and begin this important research to increase the amount of information available to practitioners and the public.


Even in Europe, many afflicted people can no longer deny the existence of this disease, but still ignored by Europe’s medical community. Consequently, this disease can spread further, as neither physicians nor patients know anything about this new and resistant fungus-like parasite. Since it initially presents with insect-bites-like skin symptoms similar to those from mosquitos, scabies, lice or fleas (see pictures of such skin symptoms), the patient is often misdiagnosed by physicians.

There are approximately 40,000 to 80,000 scabies infestations in humans annually in each Western country. It is more likely that this new parasite (“ORGANISM X”) is the cause of many of these infestations, rather than scabies, due to the pathogenic symptoms and unusual resistance to biocides. Many people just do not know that they already have this disease going on in their bodies or that they are latent carriers of such fibers!!

TYPICAL SYMPTOMS:

From the surface of the skin of a person afflicted with this disease, and from nearly everywhere in the infected environment, tiny black specks (spots) can be retrieved. These specks feel like grains of sand. Under the microscope, however, one recognizes only dessicated slime; red, green, blue and glassy or black “lint balls”; or plastic- or cotton-like fibers, which were scraped or biopsied.

It is clear to everyone that fuzz balls from cotton, for example, are not pathogenic, nor can they move or produce parasitic symptoms. Otherwise, should we assume that people worldwide have allergic reactions to parts of clothing fibers (chemical or genetic treatments)?

If that were true, everyone with this disease would have contact with, or possess clothing made from, contaminated cotton, which could be also contaminated/covered with fungal spores or its slime (protoplasm) to protect crops as biological insecticide.

One can find possibly glassy and multicolored fibers occurring naturally everywhere, in the home and on the skin, but many fibers just come from textile abrasion too (from fabric, clothing) or the like. Under the microscope, they may appear abstract, but to react like a maniac or hypochondriac is an exaggerated response. One could be subject then, actually, to a "delusional parasitosis."

RESEARCH:

Agreement with other sources of research mostly centered on the very unusual and atypical behavior of this parasitic organism, as compared with typical parasite types that infest humans. Comparing it with well-known parasites, one could make a list so long that it would be endless. So many different manifestations and insect-like or other involved life forms and as well fibers that move independently creates much confusion among afflicted people and researchers without leading to an definitive conclusions.

An exact classification of this unknown organism, in terms of subspecies of prokaryotic/eukaryotic life forms, such as arthropods, protozoa, helminthes (worms, nematodes, etc.), bacteria, fungi or viruses, is currently still not possible by science and the usual parasite taxa, DNA tests, or simple yeast cultures just did not fit, in this case. Perhaps the scientists are doing just the wrong tests, or they do not want to find out more by force.

For some of the researchers, only mites or nematodes seem to fit as a classification, but none of this was completely convincing to me, so I thoroughly investigated on my own on rare pathogenic fungi, fungus-like organisms, protozoa and GMOs.

Note: When I talk about parasites, I rather mean the scientific terminology, to clarify some confusion about the term, I am not referring to the usual common parasites (bugs), such as arthropods or insects. Parasites (or parasitic organisms) can be also a protozoa, bacteria, fungus or viruses, that lives on or in other organisms for its survival.

Many of my first analyzed samples appeared to be lint from clothing and not clearly definable life forms, therefore I rejected many specimens without coming to a definitive conclusion. In order to obtain really significant scientific results, one first looks for well-known species, perhaps also, for a mutated scabies or bird mite, or even a kind of worm or virulent bacteria.

However, in this case, all my own investigations and mandatory medical examinations led to none of the typical natural parasites, just because there is simply no link to new treatment-resistant mites, worms (nematode/filaria), bacteria (MRSA) or algae (protothecosis) as the cause of Morgellons, not even to Chemtrails, biological nanotech-machines or UFOs as many odd people claim.

Even though some of the well-known parasites are related to the Morgellons syndrome, they are just further infections because many afflicted do not have similar infestations at all. It`s rather related to their region or environment where they live in, to attract and be infested on the top with local bugs, and because fibers embetted with this life form can be later also a vector (carrier) of many different pathogens just collected (electrostatic attraction) from nature randomly (e.g. bacteria, molds, viruses, worms or their eggs).

It would be easy to think that the Morgellons syndrome simply represents a typical bacterial or fungal infection or parasitic infestation with e.g. mites, flies, fleas, lice etc. In any case, it seems to be much more. There can be many different microorganisms (or genes) involved that we still have not identified or classified.

After further research and observation of these unnatural manifestations on micro level, I came to the conclusion that this new parasite could be only a GMO (Genetically Modified Organism), made probably with fungal model organisms and some protozoal or bacterial organisms, too, such as e.g. A. tumefaciens for example.

Genetically modified and combined to fulfill certain tasks, such as to kill insects or…what? Slow working biological warfare? Or is it even a combination of spirochete bacteria with some protozoal or fungal genes? Anyway, it is a dangerous tool which can be used for many purposes.

These model organisms, also used as biological insecticides (e.g. the fungus Metarhizum anisopliae), were already defined and subdivided by scientists in former studies in laboratory conditions, but in VITRO only. They were released into nature for profit, in VIVO, without any responsibility or further control!!

Additionally this life form is protected from external influences such as toxins, UV-light, heat etc. by melanin and its body-surrounding, wax-like slime layer, which is based on enzymes, chitin and other polysacherids, and/or with an industrial manufactured coating based on lignin or plastic, which can serve also as carrier for distribution.

Why did the forensic lab in Tulsa/Oklahoma declared the fibers as unknown material, if they have melanin, chitin and cellulose as cell wall component? And therefore e.g. chitin-inhibitors or chitinase enzyme works as first help to degrade them!

The body and skin of different hosts offers variable living conditions, in chemical and physical regard and to which known endo- and ectoparasites can adapt quickly. Assuming a broad host spectrum and the especially high adaptability of these virulent parasites, they represent a unique kind of inner morphologic variability and chemical expression. One could divide the variability of these and most other parasites to mutate or adapt into three criteria:

The host variable, the individual variability within the own group or strain, and the geographic variability.

This bizarre life form is pleomorphic, and probably also dimorphic. It can adapt extremely fast to any biological host (insects, mammals, plants) or to chemical changes in its environment, and having as nutrition any organic or non-organic material.

All parameters must be constantly redefined, because these microorganisms are expressed as a constantly persisting adaptation, never completed. One knows neither the exact lifespan nor all possible biological manifestations that this virulent fungal-bacterial biofilm can create or even attract by its pheromones.

If we assume that this fungus-like life form can perhaps assimilate or hijack the DNA of other organisms naturally, and the involved bacteria, such as enterobacteria or A. tumifaciens can transfer DNA to other organisms naturally, what kind of new organism comes out then? This new organism could possibly even switch through all genetically included life forms or gen sequences when needed, adapting itself better to any possible host or environment for its survival.

We can also assume that this Morgellons life form is a chimera, made with fungal or protozoal protoplasm as carrier and a nucleus that can contain foreign DNA, or its own fungal DNA-sequences crossed with DNA from different organisms. Or this protoplasm contains several DNA nuclei from different organisms, which get individually activated according to their need.

Many variation are possible, which could also explaine why these organisms simultaneously exhibit several different characteristics and aspects that seem to grow out from this fungus-like protoplasm.

Surely this phenomenon could be very unusual and fantastic but very possible today. However, we must try to remain on solid ground, instead of speculating without having conclusive DNA tests or even what some others believe: that this parasite could only be Mars spores, from chemtrails (aerosol spraying), nanomachines (as in the Larson Report), or perhaps Quantum Biology and other crap theories.

One should remain, for the time being, of the conviction that there may be a pure scientific explanation without a typical government conspiracy. Anyway, I will have a look at these theories later too, particularly nanotechnology and genetically altered products.

With regard to the latter, products from the genetic technology (gentech) companies BAYER and Monsanto seem related to frequent allergenic diseases arising lately, especially after their spraying actions with chemicals or manipulated microorganisms (e.g. bacteria, fungi, nematodes, etc.). Read more under "Disease Factors"

Assuming that bio-micro-devices cause Morgellons is absolutely remote. Of course, such things are possible and exist in parallel at this time (smart dust technology), but robots, micro-chips or nano-machines do not react to a full moon, enzymes, chitin-inhibitors, chili, garlic, horseradish or peppermint oil.

In this case, all evidence points rather toward to fungal or fungus-like life forms (protozoa, myxozoa, myxobacteria?). Scientists could even create a simple robot that can be directed e.g. by a slime mold with collective intelligence (quorum sensing). This and more has already been investigated by scientists to learn about the intelligence of microorganisms, which have even been tested for their ability to navigate through labyrinths.

(more about slime molds and lichens)

This theory of collective intelligence (quorum sensing) of microorganisms processing information among them comes anyway closer to the Morgellons organisms, particularly also with fungi or kinds of molds, such as nematicidal fungi and insecticidal fungi from the order "Entomophthorales," which can be crossed even with spider or scorpion genes to make them more toxic or hypervirulent.

http://www.nature.com/nbt/journal/v25/n12/full/nbt1357.html

If Morgellons would be just a protozoa, it would be easy to treat them with Hydroxychloroquin, Tinidazole, or Metronidazole, or to find at least DNA sequences of it. Don`t think that all scientists are stupid!! Not even one of the official or unofficial scientists did find clear evidences of any DNA or typical cell characteristics of eukaryotic life forms, such as golgi apparatus, DNA nucleus, etc. This makes all more difficult for us. 

Anyway, the truth about Morgellons is related closely to fungi/molds, bacteria and protozoa, and surely not, to self-assembling micro- or nano-devices. I tested many samples, but few showed electrical reactions under low voltage or current—just electrostatic reactions perhaps due to plastic or melanin parts.

PATHOLOGICAL CONSEQUENCES:

Beside all the bacterial, fungal or viral infections which are present or being even transmitted by this fungus-like life form, the whole condition is furthermore extremely dangerous, since a constant endogenous infestation, a possession or a takeover of the host body can take hold by this invasive entity, with all the attendant pathogenic implications for mammals.

Forcing increased connective tissue damage/reduction and a change in the host chemistry to their favor, and a kind of skin tissue plastification (plastic-like layers) which is caused together or alone by Borrelia bacteria.

The fungus-like biomass (protoplasm/cytoplasm) rather produces slow moving fibers or tentacle-like bio-polymer elongations (chitin-like hyphae, zygospores?) which have an apical growth.

Pathologically seen, human proteins and lipids, such as cartilage, collagen, melanin and keratin will be dissolved by enzymes (keratinase, proteases and liptases/lipases). One can say that what the AIDS virus does not finish may be completed by this illness or parasite and Lyme disease.

Physicians declare some of the skin symptoms as "selfmutilation", "Prurigo" or blisters and connective tissue damage as "Collagenosis" or "Epidermolysis bullosa acquisita," autoimmune diseases, instead looking at possible fungal pathogens and protozoan or Borrelia bacteria as a cause of lesions, blisters, sinusitis, eye infections, lung infection or connective tissue damage, etc.

How many humans could have been infected after the fact? Which absurd and humiliating medications have they tried already? This information cannot be fully reconstructed (many have committed suicide). Standard parasitic medications (such as lindane, permethrin, cortisone, etc.) or even stronger doses of other treatments (acids) do not work for this condition. Just because, it is not the usual type of parasite (bug).

It is a long-term disease (typical sign of a fungal infection) same as chronic Lyme disease, and it is not advisable for the patient endure such extended, toxic treatment. In addition, the high cost of healthcare should point to another solution!

At an advanced infestation of the host organism, after approximately two to six months the disease complex (Lyme and Morgellons) can also cause serious neurological, mental and other physical disease symptoms, e.g. infestation of internal organs, the lymph system, the blood circulatory system, the brain and eyes, chronic lung infection, meningitis/encephalitis, multiple sclerosis symptoms, fibromyalgia and schizophrenia.

A rapid diagnosis and treatment in the initial phase of the infection may prevent the usual pathogenesis of a chronic systemic illness, instead ignoring this disease!

For an infected person, each day counts until one finally figures out what disease one has. Many months or years go by, and by then, probably, one is already in the last stage of Lyme disease, too. Everyone could be affected by it in the future, not only the smaller, more susceptible populations with lowered immune systems.

To clarify it briefly, in Western countries, there are currently over 300,000 humans probably infected with this illness, with continuous increase projected worldwide. The dark numbers of infections are possibly up to 10 million or more, and animals are not even taken into account.

IN SUMMATION:

My own investigations (against all odds and other researchers’ results) revealed that “ORGANISM X” is very possibly a bio-insecticide, such as protozoa or entomopathogenic fungi, perhaps with different genes or gene sequences from other microorganisms. Genetically modified by man or even mutated by natural gene transfer/exchange due to environmental influences.

Additionally, also external pathogens might be transmitted from this organism X, as e.g. from the natural environment or from the gastrointestinal tract of nematodes, arthropods and insects (e.g. Borrelia, Babesia and Bartonella etc.), that bio-insecticides (predators) actually kill or eat.

It is also possible, that Morgellons is not a typical fungus but a fungus-like life form (fungoid, amoeboid), perhaps a microsporidium-like organism or even a proteobacteria, or a slimy protozoa or bacteria (e.g. myxozoa, myxobacteria) or a mixture of different protozoa with Borrelia bacteria (GMO?).

Because some scientists even claim that spirochete bacteria is rather a protozoal-like life form. Or this organism X is perhaps the missing link between bacteria and fungus or protozoa, perhaps living also with those mentioned organisms intracellularly in symbiosis? 

Of course, the creators (the pesticide industry or military?) will do all that is possible to hide or debunk the truth and even to spread rumors over the Internet about UFOs, nano-machines, Mars spores and ridiculous delusional conceptions as the cause of Morgellons, with the help of many payed agents, who interact together in a worldwide network.

These include computer hackers, scientists or even physicians, who hide themselves sometimes behind the term "quackbusters or scienceblogs" just to disinform, confuse or blame the whole situation on the victims and researchers. You can not trust anyone today, particulary physicians!

All reminds me to the story as it happend with the U.S. syphilis experiment in Guatemala and as well in Tuskegee/Alabama, leaded by U.S. health authorities!
