Wow Pierre, I can't wait to pick up a copy or two of that book!! Loved those articles that you've shared on SOTT, and I've sent a few copies of your previous tome to people all over America. The "Human-Cosmic Connection" is among my top ten favorite books of all time - and I do keep a list!
I also appreciate your sharing of the viral angle to evolution, it is certainly an overlooked subject that needs more study. As a biologist who cut his teeth studying viruses, I'm definitely interested in your shares on that subject, and there's definitely something to it.
However...there may be a much simpler, and elegant, theory of evolution that could potentially encompass the explosions of new life forms that occur once the "terrain" has been rearranged. But before we go there, I need to warn you that all of the scientists who have studied this backwater realm of biology and evolution have had their careers destroyed, their importance in history belittled, their very liberty assailed by the courts, and even their very lives imperiled - and even potentially ended - when they tried to go public with their findings.
Are you game to follow me into this dark alley, Pierre? Are you ready to be exposed to something potentially magnificent, and yet so simple and fundamental, that it could potentially shed light on what some have called "Intelligent Design" - and not only that, but that those vilified scientists have done more than enough ground work to show that whatever they were seeing could even be described as "Intelligent Design In Action?"
Well then Pierre, just follow me, over here...into this alley...which is actually this little backwater thread on this very website - but sssshhhhh!!! Tread softly, or those behind these doors will scatter like roaches...
In simple terms, the Germ Theory states that disease comes from germs. The Terrain Theory states that germs are the result of a disease, not the cause. The creature credited with giving us the germ theory is Louis Pasteur (1822-1895). He mainly stole ideas from others, and his real contribution...
OK, now we are here (shuts door) - I in particular want to emphasize this post, #71 on page 5 of that thread - these passages from Christopher Bird's book, "The Persecution And Trial Of Gaston Naessens":
"With his exceptional instrument, Naessens next went on to
discover in the blood of animals and humans—as well as in the saps
of plants—a hitherto unknown, ultramicroscopic, subcellular, living
and reproducing microscopic form, which he christened a somatid
(tiny body). This new particle, he found, could be cultured, that is,
grown, outside the bodies of its hosts (in vitro, "under glass," as the
technical term has it). And, strangely enough, this particle was seen
by Naessens to develop in a pleomorphic (form-changing) cycle, the
first three stages of which—somatid, spore, and double spore—are
perfectly normal in healthy organisms, in fact crucial to their
existence. (See Figure 1.)
Even stranger, over the years the somatids were revealed to be
virtually indestructible! They have resisted exposure to
carbonization temperatures of 200° C and more. They have survived
exposure to 50,000 rems of nuclear radiation, far more than enough
to kill any living thing. They have been totally unaffected by any
acid. Taken from centrifuge residues, they have been found
impossible to cut with a diamond knife, so unbelievably impervious
to any such attempts is their hardness.
The eerie implication is that the new minuscule life forms
revealed by Naessens's microscope are imperishable. At the death of
their hosts, such as ourselves, they return to the earth, where they
live on for thousands or millions, perhaps billions, of years!"
But before Naessens, Bechamp; Rife; and Reich all discovered the same organisms. Here is what Bechamp found:
While laboring on problems of fermentation, the breakdown of
complex molecules into organic compounds via a "ferment"—one
need only think of the curdling of milk by bacteria—Bechamp, at
his microscope, far more primitive than Naessens's own instrument,
seemed to be able to descry a host of tiny bodies in his fermenting
solutions. Even before Bechamp's time, other researchers had
observed, but passed off as unexplainable, what they called
"scintillating corpuscles" or "molecular granulations." Bechamp,
who was able to ascribe strong enzymatic (catalytic change-causing)
reactions to them, was led to coin a new word to describe them:
microzymas (tiny ferments).
Among these ferments' many peculiar characteristics was one
showing that, whereas they did not exist in chemically pure calcium
carbonate made in a laboratory under artificial conditions, they were
abundantly present in natural calcium carbonate, commonly known
as chalk. For this reason, the latter could, for instance, easily
"invert" cane sugar solutions, while the former could not.
With the collaboration of his son, Joseph, and Alfred Estor, a
Montpellier physician and surgeon, Bechamp went on to study
microzymas located in the bodies of animals and came to the
startling conclusion that the tiny forms were far more basic to life
than cells, long considered to be the basic building blocks of all
living matter. Bechamp thought them to be fundamental elements
responsible for the activity of cells, tissues, organs, and indeed
whole living organisms, from bacteria to whales, and larks to human
beings. He even found them present in life-engendering eggs, where
they were responsible for the eggs' further development while
themselves undergoing significant changes.
So, nearly a century before Gaston Naessens christened his
somatid, his countryman, Bechamp, had come across organisms
that, as Naessens immediately recognized, seem to be "cousins,"
however many times removed, of his own "tiny bodies."
Most incredible to Bechamp was the fact that, when an event
serious enough to affect the whole of an organism occurred, the
microzymas within it began working to disintegrate it totally, while
at the same time continuing to survive. As proof of such survival,
Bechamp found these microzymas in soil, swamps, chimney soot,
street dust, even in air and water. These basic and apparently eternal
elements of which we and all our animal relatives are composed
survive the remnants of living cells in our bodies that disappear at
So seemingly indestructible were the microzymas that
Bechamp could even find them in limestone dating to the Tertiary,
the first part of the Cenozoic Era, a period going back sixty million
years, during which mammals began to make their appearance on
Bird's book doesn't go into detail of Dr. Wilhelm Reich's discoveries, but having read much of it myself they parallel what both Naessens and Bechamp discovered. But there is this quote from Bird's book (page 290) that is relevant:
"Why haven't physicists looked into the effects Rife achieved with electromagnetic waves of
specific frequencies upon disease, including cancer?
Similar effects were observed by Dr. Georges Lakhovsky in
Paris, who developed a wave emitter called a multi-wave oscillator
with which he cured cancer as well as other diseases in plants and
humans. The multi-wave oscillator is today banned by the FDA as
quackery. They have also been noted in Bordeaux by another
inventor, self-taught as was Rife, Antoine Priore, whose apparatus
combines the use of electromagnetic radiation with a plasma of
helium or noble gases reminiscent of Rife's method used in
detecting and devitalizing BX.
Are the strange blue, motile forms that Dr. Wilhelm Reich
discovered in the late 1930s and for which he coined the word bions
related to the foregoing? Reich observed the bions to spontaneously
proliferate from specially treated organic matter and even from coal
and sand! Spontaneous generation of life was supposed to have been
laid to rest in Reich's time, as it is in ours, and he was accused by
fellow scientists of confusing Brownian movement of subcellular
particles or debris in his cultures with the new subcellular forms he
claimed to have discovered.
In cancerous patients, Reich observed the bions to degenerate
into what he called T-bacilli (the T coming from the German word
Tod, meaning death). When injected into mice, they caused cancer
just like Rife's BX forms."
So: we now have Naessens and his descriptions of "somatids" in his microscope; and Bechamp describing what he saw in his as "scintillating corpuscles" or "molecular granulations"; and here, Dr. Reich talks of the motile forms he sees in *his* powerful light microscope as "bions". Dr. Rife would call the same organisms, "BX bacillus".
Time to look at Dr. Royal Raymond Rife and his discoveries...
"Under his microscope, at 20,000 X, the tube (a sealed test tube containing cancer tissue into a
closed loop filled with argon gas that he charged with electricity) now teemed with
animated forms measuring only 1/20 by 1/15 of a micron—much
smaller than any known bacteria. They refracted a purplish red color
in the specific light beam.
He called this form Bacillus X and, later, because it was so
much smaller than other bacilli, and perhaps because of the
filterability controversy, BX vims. This problem of nomenclature
can be resolved herein by referring to Rife's organism as a BX form,
or simply BX.
Because he could culture his BX form, so small it would pass
through any filter, he seemed to have discovered a filterable form of
a bacterium. But just finding bacteria, even in filterable form, in a
human tumor does not necessarily imply that they are its cause. To
make sure, it is held they must be re-injected into animals and seen to
cause the same or nearly similar disease, after which they must then
be re-isolated and shown to resemble the original organism. These
were the postulates propounded by the German pioneer
bacteriologist Robert Koch, who proved that tuberculosis was
apparently caused by the tubercle bacillus.
Following this accepted procedure, Rife inoculated the new BX
forms into over 400 rats in all of which there subsequently appeared
"tumors with all the true pathology of neoplastic tissue."
Some of the tumors became so large they exceeded the total
weight of the individual rats in which they were developing. When
the tumors were surgically removed, the BX form was recovered
from them in all cases. Koch's postulates were fulfilled.
By continued microscopical study and repeated photography to
stop their motion, Rife and his co-workers next came to the baffling
conclusion that the BX, far from remaining always what he had seen
as the purplish red bodies a fraction of a micron in dimension, could
change into not just fairly similar forms as Rosenow had previously
discovered, but into completely different forms simply by altering
the medium on which they were living only very slightly.
"Slightly" in Rife's case meant an alteration in the nutrient
environment of only two parts per million by volume. Those who
would consider this unlikely may recall that in homeopathic
medicine doses of remedies are given in dilutions of this weakness
and beyond. Even though they have nothing chemically analyzable
in them, they are effective.
One such alteration caused the BX to become what Rife called
a Bacillus Y, or BY. It was still the same purplish red color as the
BX but so enlarged that it would not pass through a filter.
With the second change of the medium, the BY enlarged still
further into a monococcoid or single disk form which, when
properly stained, could be viewed under a standard research
microscope. Rife claimed that these forms could be found in the
blood of over ninety percent of cancer victims.
By removing this form from the fluid medium it inhabited and
depositing it onto a hard base of asparagus or tomato agar, Rife then
saw it miraculously develop into a fungus, making it kin to a yeast,
mold, or mushroom.
Any of these succeeding forms, Rife stated, could be changed
back within thirty-six hours into a BX form capable of producing
cancer tumors in experimental animals from which, in turn, the
same BX form could again be recovered.
The transformation did not stop with the fungus, which, if
allowed to stand dormantly as a stock culture for a year and then
replanted onto the asparagus medium, would then change into
bacillus coli, millions of which live in the human intestine. This
common bacillus could pass, in Rife's words, "any known laboratory
method of analysis."
So: what we have here are four very distinguished scientists over a century apart in time who discovered an elementary life form (using exceptional light microscopes) that could appear out of nowhere when the basic conditions for life were available; that these life forms could be isolated and characterized; that they could be isolated from cancer patients - and even other ancient organic media, such as chalk(!); and that were indestructible (and *electromagnetic*) in their base form; that they could be placed onto media containing different sugars and proteins that would *then* develop into bacterial forms that could process those energy sources THAT THE BASE ORGANISM DID NOT HAVE THE ABILITY TO PROCESS without some additional source of genomic DNA (appearing out of nowhere!) to enable them; and that they "disappeared" back into the ether once the organism they once constituted died.
After all of this, I once again stand upon my original assertion: that these four men were witnessing the interface where spiritual forces manifest into physical reality. If what they all saw and reported is true, then this does appear to me to be, indeed, intelligent design in action.
So, to sum up given the contents of this thread - if there is truth to what these men saw, that these microzymas/bions/somatids/BX bacillus actually do exist as fundamental, indestructible units of existence that can be distilled from any and all biological life forms - and even from long dead matter - then what could be happening re: novel, completely new organisms popping up after a cosmic "rearrangement of the terrain" could simply be these pre-existing organisms present in all *previous* life forms adapting themselves to their new conditions, and developing the genes necessary to exist in the new environment.
Uh-Oh, here come the cops! Quick Pierre, look at this little instrument, and you will be spared what happened to these four men:
