this reminds me of a dream i had a few weeks ago,

in the dream my right arm was infected with a moldy fungus, i was scratching my arm when i saw the fungus, strangely my reaction in the dream was to rip all the skin off my arm and stare at the bare bone, after seeing no way to fix it i slipped the skin back onto my arm bones like a long glove, i remember looking at my hand before regloving and feeling like the terminator from part 2, except bone isnt as strong as metal,

yeah thats a freakin strange dream and i was kinda triped out when i awoke.

Very interesting.

Its funny how people fail to understand why human beings act so violent towards one another, it seems violence is inherent in nature.

The way things in nature treat one another makes the whole Israel Palestine debate seem redundant.

Everything on this planet must kill to survive. It could be a plant, an animal, a virus, a parasite, etc.....

Nature is a brutal and unforgiving place, and it only appears more and more stunningly beautiful and complex in my eyes.

Darwinism.The weak are pushed around and exploited while the strong survive.In 2008 i saw a video of a parasite that invades the body of insects and makes them commit suicide.It makes the insect drown and when it's dead the parasite exits the body.

We are closer to the fungi family than any others.

Animals, which includes humans that is.

They've also been here a lot longer.

Maybe that's what we evolve into, and the really cool ones like Hendrix come back as blue ringers and liberty caps!

Seeing any type of plant or fungi that can do these things is amazing and makes me think of what the military might be doing along these lines... "nano-bio" engineering of genetics on cellular level fife forms and what they could use this stuff for as weapons...

reminds me of the "star jelly" thing happening now and then around the world...

great post

this fungus is millions of years old.

Morgellon's is something that just started in the last 20 or so years (maybe 30?). I highly, highly doubt there's a connection here =) Plus, fungal infections happen all the time in humans. Doctors know what to look for. Morgellon's has been looked at extensively and if it were a fungus, we'd know by now.

if you think about it...

this is where the idea of evil spirits and Possession comes from,

different spores different symptoms, different diseases whether physical or mental they are lumped with demons, devils, etc

Brain parasites who affect the hosts behaviour to their own advantage aren't that uncommon.

www.sueddeutsche.de...
here a german article

Examples are Toxoplasma gondii, a rodent parasite which makes cat urine attractive to rats (It uses the cats digestive system for it's breeding cycle), Pomphorhynchus laevis, which makes beach fleas swim into the direction of fishes, Dicrocoelium dendriticum, which makes ants spend the night on the top of grass halms instead in the nest, so they have a maximum chance to get eaten by sheep.

Fun! But those that can affect us are even more fun, what do you cat people know about Toxoplasma gondii. Not much I bet.

I am surrounded by cats my entire life but don't really like to mess with them, just to have some company. However, I know people who kiss and kuddle with them on daily basis. They sleep, and even eat with them. Some are literally obsessed with their cats.

There was a study some time ago that could possibly explain that obsession through toxoplasma gondii:

Cat Parasite Affects Everything We Feel and Do.

There are possibly other parasites of which we don't know about just yet. I remember at least two old episodes in X-Files themed around these terrestrial mild altering parasites

Toxoplasmosis

Effect : suicid rat that want to be eaten by cat : ets.

That is why cat is forbiden whith your childs.

In fact : there is a lot of people infected ( as with other intestinnal parasites ) : the after effect is depression and less strenght ( and mental illness) : and suicide. ( the cause of depression is not only this parasite ).

I hope they don't secretly find a use for it in humans. I would love to find out if it works for fleas. I have five rescue dogs and can't ever seem to get the flea problem under control.
