The spectrum of the culture growth, as developed from the oral filament samples, is also shown below. The method of preparation is similiar to that of the above, with a few exceptions. In the case of the culture growth, an extract is prepared prior to the steps outlined above. This extraction process has also been described elsewhere on this site, but it basically involves a process of substantial growth over weeks to months of time, several thorough rinsing stages, complete drying and pulverization and then subjecting the resulting powder to a sodium hydroxide and heating process. Extensive chemical testing, chromatography, electrolysis, ninhydrin analysis and visible light spectroscopy analysis has been applied to this extract and this has been reported on in detail on this site. Please see these reports for additional background information on studies by the Carnicom Institute on the Morgellons condition.
The conclusion that can be reasonably made from the presentation of these spectra is that they are essentially of one and the same thing. This effectively means that all of the conclusions that have been drawn by this researcher over a period of several years that were applied previously to the culture forms may now be equally applied to the original oral filaments. This is an expression of the value of the culture process itself, and is one of the many reasons that so much effort and time was dedicated to that process over a period of many years. It also can be stated, in equivalent form, that the assessments and conclusions reached with the use of these cultures has a level of validity that is expected to apply to the human body. It is asserted once again that no medical diagnosis of any kind is implied or stated within this report; it is being stated that the culture forms represent a viable means of study of metabolism and biochemical structure that holds numerous advantages over attempting to study these same processes within the human body.
This report will therefore further dispute any claims that are made regarding the insignificance of the oral filament samples and the cultures that are derived from those same oral filaments. It will further dispute any inadequate research claims regarding unrelated precipitation reactions involving wine and saliva (also discussed elsewhere on this site); such claims do not apply to this situation and they remain ludicrous under the volume of study that has accumulated. Ths report will further dispute any claims of a delusional, psychological or metaphysical characterization of the physical samples that exist and that can be reliably cultured and studied. This report will dispute any claim of simple classification to a known mold or fungal species; such identification remains unestablished and all signs continue to point to uniqueness and complexity in the affair. The molecular structure of this organism exists quite aptly in this physical world and it is taking its toll upon the human population as long as it exists. This physical structure will continue to be elucidated by this researcher so that its biochemistry and its interaction with the body can be properly understood and eventually thwarted.
