Photos of aliens (tv talk show guests), UFOs (with ball bearings and trash can lids), and Time travel to see dinosaurs (magazine illustrations) just don't support his whole created alien mythos all that much....

The reasoning I present here, are merely hypothesis. I don't "buy" into ANY specific purpose/function of this phenomena. I merely present the info, and put more attention towards whichever paths of thought are paved with the most supporting evidence and accumulated corroborating intelligence.
An edible fiber-optic light source is combined with confectionaries, in particular candy, to form a safe edible material possessing unusual combinations of internally generated colors and optical images.”
“Digestible optical fibers act as light pipes to carry light into confectionaries where different colors and patterns of light are generated as the candy is reduced in size.”
The light source and edible fiber optics not only have uses in candies of all types, especially lollipops and hard candy, but also are suitable for frozen food products

Has anyone plucked one of these "fibers" off their bodies and taken it to a lab to have it analyzed? Does anyone know the chemical composition of these fibers, spheres, crystals?
A: Fiber Analysis
Fibers, upon inspection, were found to be fluorescent. The pictures (Figure 1A, 1B) show both a fiber and a hair sample from the same patient observed under white light and a Hofstead filter (with 365 excitiation). The fibers were visualized in scintillation vials with a Innotech detector, showing fluorescence with both a Hofstead filter (460 nm)and a green fluorescent filter (SYBR Green, 557 nm) upon excitation at both 305 and 365 nm. The fluorescence ceased after the illumination was extinquished. A single fiber is shown in Figure 1C.
The fiber shown in 1C was examined via SEM Microscopy at the University of Northern Arizona, with no additional modifications or treatments. SEM analysis demonstrated that the fiber appeared to be a normal hair follicle with scales (Figure 2A) and a typical root terminus (Figure 2B). The absence of a smooth surface denotes that the fiber does not seem to be coated with a protein monolayer.
In order to quantify the nature of the fluorescence, a cluster of fibers placed in nanopure deionized water were observed via a Hitachi Fluorometer. When observing the fibers, a characteristic fluorescent pattern emerged. This fluorescence pattern would account for fluorescence seen in the published pictures at the Morgellons research foundation web site. A fluorescent factor (protein) was isolated as described below, and found to have a similar pattern of fluorescence. The cuvette alone did not fluoresce, but an equivalent protein concentration of BSA (bovine serum albumin) gave a fluorescence which differed distinctly from the fiber fluorescence (potentially eliminating bovine albumin as a protein identity). Figure 3 shows the fluorescence observed.
