*What are ‘spores’?    Do Coronavirus Spores Exist?

To discuss the potential  existence of spores from Covid-19 as a reasonable alternative theory,   we must first understand what a spore happens to be: 

Medical Definition of spore:

Spore” noun  \ ˈspō(ə)r, ˈspȯ(ə)r

A primitive usually unicellular often environmentally resistant dormant or reproductive body produced by plants, fungi, and some microorganisms and capable of developing into a new individual either directly or after fusion with another spore

(Miriam-Webster )

 

The Coronavirus Covid-19 Pandemic Spreads Endlessly

How? With all of the conflicting models and  advisories  from medical professionals.   There are a lot of ideas out there.  Data may or not be available and researchers are working on projects globally… but we  must conclude that nobody knows  all characteristics of Covid-19.  Yet.   Let that sink in.

That would be the true status quo of the ” new normal”. Covid-19, a  flu-like, potentially-fatal virus reportedly originating  in China.  Or in a research laboratory.  Or as a weapon of war. Supposedly.

Tens of millions of people have been infected globally, (19.4M to date,  hundreds of thousands, far more than a half million  have died (722,000)    So far.   No point in adding more gruesome research statistics, they grow and change daily.

 

The Coronavirus, So What?  Just another Flu?

Is Covid-19 ‘just another flu’?   Conspiracy advocates may think so. Or may suggest Covid-19 is a new way to control the world, limit overpopulation selectively. Win political games, upmanship, enforce dictatorships, spread ideology.  Create trillions in profit from vaccines.  Go figure.  Nothing new there.

Bureaucrats  panic, offer special, important announcements and revelations of uncoordinated  official confusion.  Shutdown of cities,  businesses of all types, schools, public spaces,  cancelled events. Sporting venues shut down, wild, empty, open air parks or not.   Social distancing.  Six feet, two meters apart, the official safe “distance”.  “Or else”.  Right.

‘Closed’ notices are posted on doors.  Bad news.   Hopefully all will reopen sooner or later.  To date, it seems that  if businesses open at all  they are “allowed” to do so under approved,  mandated control of  head counts,  lineups, social distancing,  red arrows and circles on floors, face masks,  one-way barriers, controlled paranoia.

Stay home and stay safe is the most commonly-recommended course of action.

 

Governments Respond with Panic and Arrogance.

Official panic recommends  more panic.  All schools were shut down early in the spring  to remain closed until misinformed, terrorized school boards, and bureaucrats all “decide” to follow the “official recommendations of confused “health experts”

That is, until bureaucracy and “questionable governments”  achieve their ‘plucked out of the air  advice  edicts, and tailor their “goals.”  Masks.  “Stay at home” ‘flatten the curve’, with job, the means to survive financially, physically and emotionally or not. Promoting fear. Fear of what, exactly? Fear of death, fear of the unknown?
Incompetent governments spend countries into hundreds of billions into debt, pretending to do something from stay-at-home,  offices and do nothing policies. Money disappears.    Nobody knows where, why, or how, but it’s for the common good,  no oversight of anything is  the new normal.  We digress, don’t we?  It’s all related –as the economy of the global community ‘disperses into the wind’.   Go figure.

 

How does the virus spread?  Try Coronavirus Spores. 

*This is an Alternative Theory which may or may not be possible but quite likely  IS  one of the ‘unknowns’.

Epidemiologists, highly-trained disease control specialists and researchers alike seem to agree that Covid-19 can be spread by contaminated “droplets. ” Droplets of moisture loaded with Coronavirus.   Being spread like bacteria.  Fine.

Out come the masks. Physical distancing. Six feet please.  (Two metres for Metric virus types.)  Lineups limited to  880 persons per mile. (Lineups limited to 500 persons per kilometre)   Hand washing.  Sanitizing everything.

Hospital shutdowns, no visitors.  Abandoned senior care facilities.  Seniors dying without care.   Seniors dying without family members  present, droplets present or not. Masked, gowned, gloved, sanitized health care workers on the line everywhere, endangering their lives to care for others. Everyday heroes, the new normal.

“ So….”droplets” did it all?  How likely is that, given the current and trendy confusion of facts?  Masks do not work. Yes they do. No, they do not. Not all the time. Not all masks are created equal. “Droplets are big and small, masks stop them all.”  NOT.

Somehow we think that is not likely. “Droplets” of moisture eventually fall to earth via gravity like any apple from a tree,  evaporate,  or condense, grow larger.  They may be washed out of the air in any rainstorm, blown away in a windstorm.   They  evaporate in hot air, can grow smaller,  or left still,  moist and warm, may land on surfaces, condense and become trapped on any surfaces cooler than the ambient air. Condensation of droplets complete with contamination, depends upon  air movement, air pressure, ambient humidity and temperature.  Read that —TWICE.

 

So The Unknown Persists.  What, Where, When, Why, but  Most Importantly, How?

Coronavirus is known to survive on surfaces.    For how many  minutes, hours or days, there are smatterings of opinion,  but no one seems to know for certain.  Or why. Limited knowledge of the character of the beast is the new normal.  A virus is tiny, nano-particle small, unpredictable. What, exactly? A tiny life form. Dangerous.
Known cases and infections, patterns are erratic, unpredictable. Why?
We don’t know. But we can speculate. And reasonably so.  A tinier life form called a spore.

 

Observing the Nature of SPORES

I stepped on and flattened a large, old,  papery, dried-out puffball in a vacant field the other day.  Out there where Mother Nature knows how to do stuff.  Guess what?  It was a lovely day.  Wonderful.  There was a very mild breeze. Perhaps a kilometer or two per hour.   Weather was hot and very dry.

A cloud of brown blasted out from under my foot  which may  have been millions or even BILLIONS  of puffball spores — the  foggy brown-tinted slowly cloud raised and drifted slowly down wind with  the breeze.

In common sense observation, would being six feet away (downwind of that brown cloud) be helpful?  No. Not if you didn’t see it coming or took no evasive action.  Or if it was already too diluted to recognize.  Helpful?

Not… Except for the potentially lower concentrations of contaminated air one  might  inhale.  That would  depend upon the increased distance from  the source of that specific cloud and dilution factors… Keep in mind that cloud was initially visible.  ( “The easy solution to pollution is dilution” applied by  fun-seeking  environmental engineers comes to mind.  I digress.)  The potential spores from a tiny virus would be exponentially tinier —and completely invisible.

 

And That is Important because?

That innocent interaction with a common ‘puffball’ and its spore distribution scored  potential explanations for some of the erratic, confusing  characteristics of Covid-19.  Many important questions remain unanswered.  Global communities of researchers  are collectively trying to determine  all facts and characteristics of  Covid-19.

Why NOT also  consider the possibility that the Coronavirus may additionally be spread by spores?

To know your enemy and its tactics is  to know it’s weaknesses.

 

Anomalous Facts and Contradictory Observations….

  1. Some Covid-infected individuals are asymptomatic. They are apparently contaminated, test positive,  are not feeling ill, but in fact, are contagious.  Why would that be?  If spores were inhaled, did the infected person  inhale only a “few” spores, enough to kick off a positive Covid-19 test?  Or were the potentially millions of spores simply not yet developed because of time required?  Were they delayed by  environmental conditions in the victim’s lungs and/or other organs?
  2. Equally, some victims become sick very rapidly –-and may recover,  or unfortunately,  succumb to the challenge and are added to the death toll. How is it possible this virus can be so unpredictable and virulent?  Did they inhale a massive dose of droplets contaminated with active virus  ready to eject spores , or simply  inhale free-floating  spores in the air  that were already fully-developed  in ideal conditions,  nurtured by perfect conditions in Covid-resisting, asymptomatic carriers with undiscovered immunity?
  3. The Coronavirus displays little preference for the age of victims. Seniors confined in care facilities have been  statistically more likely to become victims.  It must be asked if those statistics  were established only because of freely-floating, inactive Coronavirus spores concentrated, circulating endlessly in poor ventilation systems in care homes? Air conditioning systems being filtered ineffectively?   Was the viral invasion waiting for victims surrounded with mild, perfect environmental conditions,  with immune systems weakened by  related or non-related health issues?    Were those issues coupled with– and perhaps exacerbated by negligence, poor care,  improper sanitation? Fecal matter involved ?  Unsanitary laundry practices?    Any combination thereof?    The fact is, nobody knows all of the facts.
  4. Equally confusing, some VERY old seniors –have been ill and survived. Individuals, both male and female, over 100 years old appear to have survived Covid-19. Is that because– having lived so long, they have been exposed to startlingly-similar, virulent viruses and their spores  much  earlier in life?  Think about that. Spores can lie dormant for centuries.
  5. Some environments are predictably more likely to be infectious than others; necessarily closed, common environments  with limited circulation and air filtering limitation common  in planes, offices, enclosed spaces, care facilities, crowded dorms, restaurants, bars, health clubs, fitness bars,   venues, etc.  Consider those   the relative dilution of contaminants found in wide open spaces in fresh air outdoors.
  6. A few patients become ill, briefly, with mild symptoms, but recover and still test positive. The mechanism and time frame is completely erratic, also being poorly understood. Research is being conducted with various ‘results’.
  7. Numbers of victims display typical early symptoms— but only much later become very ill
  8. . Some victims inexplicably become critically ill almost immediately.
  9. Patients with weakened immune system may even die immediately upon infection because of the massive, sudden development of a concentrated  spore field.
  10. Chronic conditions can result, with critical involvement of organs and bodily tissue other than lungs. Cases of severe inflammation of organs and limbs, fingers and toes have occurred even in children. Why would that be, unless  a massive infection was suddenly ingested via  lungs and transferred to the blood stream  in the form of spores?  Spores to be transported to cells, joints and tissue, invaders suitable  for colonization and development of full-blown virus —and more spores?

The Model of Transmission by SPORES

A model of transmission by spores offers seemingly reasonable answers to many unanswered questions and may also answer for the erratic observations made to date  during the pandemic.

Transmission of the Covid-19 by airborne spores is not only possible, it may even be quite likely.  DNA can be spread by spores? Yes.  With Covid-19 it has  already been suggested that DNA can be spread by exosomes  (nano-sized  30-150 nm  particles contained in virtually every type of cell in the body )    Why could virus NOT replicate the same universal processes of natural spores for propagation, expulsion and invasion, even if much  tinier than the 30nm exosomes  shed by other cells?

 

Currently Known  Methods of Transfer and Infection

First of all, YES,  let us agree,  transmission of the Covid-19  virus via large moist particles is known to be one factor. Fluid contaminated and spread  erratically, distributed  by propulsion of  a sneeze, cough,  phlegm,  a breath or contaminated materials of some kind.  Such as touch surfaces.  Screens, doorknobs, push cart handles.  Coronavirus  may  also be transmitted  in tiny aerosolized  moist  particles—and  in moving air, aerosolized or not.

Corona virus can exist and be transferred from any  contaminated surfaces touched by, sneezed over, or coughed upon by any infected patient  or by asymptomatic carriers, persons displaying absolutely no symptoms of the disease.     Mature virus can be expelled by bodily fluids, touch, proximity to coughing, breathing, speaking, sneezing carriers, even those  speaking ‘moistly’  as spoken by  ‘always hiding at the cottage” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

 

Other Significant Questions for Consideration:

The question must be asked, “ARE the Covid-19  virus  which are known to exist in  large particles, small particles, sneezes, etc. always mature, active and  infectious at all stages?  Can the viruses  also be  dead, dying, tired, weakened, spent viruses which have already fulfilled  their life cycle, perhaps  already having ejected  trillions of  ultra-tiny spores, bits of DNA  onto and into the surrounding environment directly,  whatever or wherever that may BE?

Puffball spores which can be seen en masse in a cloud when the puffball is mature and dries.  Spores ejected by puffballs in dry conditions  may be gigantic by comparison to others.  Each individual puffball  spore may be as tiny as  3.5 to 5.5 microns (0.00014 to 0.00019 inches) in diameter.  Despite their diminutive size, numbers of spores in one ejection event may be in the millions or even billions.

 

Size Matters

Puffball spores can be seen in the air  en masse when the puffball is disturbed.
Corona virus spores could conceivably be tiny on a scale a MILLIONTH, a BILLIONTH of that size or infinitely smaller–virtually undetectable —and immeasurable in number.

Let that sink in as you wear  a perfectly good cloth mask that might keep out dust  but has natural holes in the woven material which might be comparable to the size of  a city block versus  a spore,  which on the same scale would be far smaller than a grain of sand  or smaller.
Could spores from Covid-19  be SO tiny— on such an infinitesimally -small microscopic  scale— they have not yet even been discovered?   Could any ordinary known woven material or “mask” stop such tiny entities?  No.

 

Get Serious! Think about the POSSIBILITY of  SPORES.

 *Floral-like structures and the ‘expulsion event of mature spores’ are  common reproductive models  in nature, shared by  flowers, mold,  fungi, and even with some forms of sea life.

*The “spike-like” “ Corona form” of the  Covid-19  floret is unique and is involved in reproductive  processes  in nature in all instances.

 Such means of distribution of DNA  via a spike-like ejection event–  can also  theoretically be used to attach to, and  explosively  “inject” spores through the walls of organic matter and cells themselves,   injecting life-altering DNA into ANY adjacent cell tissue regardless of organ type or location in the body.  Imagine that.  Mother Nature is very creative and will not be denied.

“Spores” ARE a massive, invasive method of reproduction by widely scattering bits of protected DNA.   Spores are known to survive even the most hostile conditions for a very long time.  That may be days, months, YEARS, perhaps for centuries or millennia .

Such entities can begin developing, growing, and maturing  ONLY  when they  are allowed or gifted the necessary environmental conditions, such as temperature, pH,  moisture, acidity, oxygen content, ie. the correct atmosphere,  within or with the presence  of any potentially viable conditions.  That would be  on or within host entities.  Read that again.

 

Current Testing  for Covid-19

 A very big deal–and confusion galore –has been made of *testing for Covid-19. 

 Yes,  generally, testing of patients with potential Covid-19 symptoms is good policy, as is isolation of infected persons.
(*swabbing of throat/nasal tissue with sterile swabs)

* Most noteworthy, current testing of patients  MAY or MAY NOT DETECT asymptomatic cases. Worth repeating twice,   worth repeating endlessly,  testing  MAY NOT DETECT asymptomatic  victims contaminated with  Coronavirus SPORES which  have not developed or those coated with a protective protein.

Testing  (as it exists ) may only  positively detect mature, healthy viruses.  Would that be prior to shedding SPORES for replication?  The question must be asked.

Will  the same Covid-19 test detect  “spent” viruses, weakened by completing their life purpose, perhaps already having ejected billions of spores into the surrounding host environment  such as air, lungs, human tissue,  bodily fluids,  organic matter of any kind?

 Does the same Covid-19 test detect spores at all?  Undeveloped spores?  Each spore is an individual entity capable of becoming a viable virus given the right conditions.  Imagine THAT too.

 So current Covid-19  testing may adequately detect healthy  or mature,  viruses,   or perhaps even dead, defunct  virus entities in  blood, mucus,  fecal matter.  Viruses may be found upon any Covid-19 contaminated surface.  Does the same test detect spores?

It may also be worthwhile  exploring  whether  false positives  and  negatives  may occur  IF IMMATURE undeveloped spores  happen to be present.  Or are present in addition to mature Corona virus.

 

  Is there any differentiation available?

—Are millions of inert, perfectly- protected spores laying about upon “sanitized surfaces” detectable? Can they be differentiated from mature virus?
—Will  spores be removed by sanitation methods that remove  mature viruses? 

—When, exactly is  spore development initiated?
—At what point of development DO  spores become detectable?

What is the incubation period?  (The time from initial ejection to mature coronavirus )

Which factors cause the spore to mature and develop another generation of spores?

The fact is, with spores— much remains unknown.

 Spores  of any variety  take time to develop.  Having been exposed to an adequate cloud of spores, patients who have been weakened   are ideal victims  of Corona virus.  They will become seriously ill  quickly as the immune system reacts to the sudden massive INFECTION  of mature virus or  spores  developing to complete their sole purpose—to invade.

Strong, healthy persons exposed to the same dense cloud of spores may also eventually be overcome and ill.    But initially, or  perhaps even later in the interim,  will they always test positive for Covid-19?   It is not a stretch to suggest those individuals are,  or may  become  classic asymptomatic carriers of Covid-19.

Is  more than simple immunity involved with healthy individuals?

 

Crowded Facilities and Air Travel

 Meantime, persons in crowded facilities, involved in air travel on crowded commercial  flights, and those  in other enclosed areas  will be more likely to be infected by SPORES floating freely in the air where ventilation is simply primitive  recirculation through inadequate filters.

Do HVAC  air systems  remain?   Unvented,  not refreshed  with makeup air at all?   Inadequately-filtered, often heated, moistened air would certainly not be free of ultra-miniscule spores— and the same contagion would be concentrated, freely offered  to the same victims repeatedly, but with a potentially  lower oxygen content, exacerbating the problem.

Bottom Line

Bottom line,  are moisture droplets,  even ‘aerosolized’ droplets  and touching contaminated surfaces the  the only way Covid-10 can be spread?  Additionally, it must be considered that any air stream can carry inert SPORES  for ANY distance imaginable.  Spores on the wind.   Is the unlimited spread of spores unstoppable?

The official community of “health experts” suggests everyone wear MASKS.   Unfortunately, even the best MASKS may  not be capable of removing  the tiniest of tiny SPORES.

 

Mass Confusion


Is it any wonder mass confusion is being exploited both politically and medically, with arrogant politicians politicizing the disaster,  bureaucrats seeking control?  How about Covid scams such as false test kits?    Heard of any self-important selected  ‘publish or perish‘ self-approved medical experts contradicting themselves time after time?

The confused public is forced to  “accept and believe” daily ‘edicts’,  half-truths, rules, and the resulting  organized panic and paranoia.  

Additionall, now we may now also be required to face the possibility of Covid-19 spores which freely float through masks of all types.

Enjoy the lineups.

 

 Here at Incomingbytes  we believe  the very real  POTENTIAL EXISTENCE of Covid-19 SPORES  must be INVESTIGATED.  Get it yet?
Meanwhile, stay safe.

Pandemic Social Distancing: Six Feet Apart

FacebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmailFacebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

©2020 by Raymond Alexander Kukkee

Covid-19 Virus under the Microscope

The Covid-19 Virus, Cause of the Global 2020 Pandemic  *

 

Pandemic!  Covid-19  Social Distancing: Six Feet Apart

No one on earth is exempt.  Let that sink in for a moment.  You need to be six feet apart.   Virtually every human being  on earth is at risk from  the danger being infected with the  Covid -19 virus.  A contagion with over 1.3 million cases globally at this date.  Covid-19 has cause thousands of deaths.   Any  man, woman,  or child of any age can become infected with this dangerous new virus pandemic.

We are told that we  can resist.  “Flatten the curve” is a trendy catch phrase used to describe minimizing total cases out there to avoid overloading overworked  health systems and hospital care all at once.
What can we do?  Wash our hands. Wear masks, limit visitations to seniors and those with compromised immune systems.   Stay home. Stay healthy. Self-quarantine persons with symptoms.   Remain isolated for 14 days.
Most importantly, keep your distance from others in public at all times,  a new, difficult,  and counter-intuitive  social behaviour.
Social distancing is required by law in some jurisdictions, ignored in others.   A social euphemism for “back off, dude!”

Stay away from carriers of the contagion”  comes to mind”

More important words may never have been spoken —like in the days of yore. Two sword lengths apart.

Social Distancing: Six Feet Apart

Offering  recommendations to slow down this pandemic, nouveau  experts on this disease are recommending  that  “social distancing”  be maintained between individuals in public.  The distance is  two  meters  or approximately — six feet apart.  To minimize infection via aerosolized particles of moisture in sneezes ad coughs, wet breath and snot.

Other helpful measures involve limitations on unnecessary travel. Locked down cities. Closure of all businesses except food & drugstores, essential business.  (and alcohol outlets of course) Less socialization in groups. No parties. No celebrations, No funerals.  Self isolation.  Quarantine of suspected cases and incoming travelers for a minimum of 14 days.

Social Distancing  makes sense, starve the virus of potential victims.  Here at Incomingbytes.com we suggest that 

It’s better to be six feet apart than six feet UNDER.

Let that be your guide,  let that six feet be your new behavioural standard,  best social practice,  perhaps the best advice ever,  other than to “keep  breathing at all times.”
Right up there with “cough and sneeze  into your elbow” and wash your hands often and thoroughly. And use hand sanitizer at every turn. Keep your hands off of your face, eyes, and keep those fingers out of the nose. Always good advice. Sterilize surfaces, doorknobs, counters, equipment. Wash produce.  By now you’ve heard it all, but do you actually DO it?

Out in public, be six feet apart at all times.

Worth repeating.  Be six feet apart at all times.  Now social distancing is becoming expected social behaviour for the preservation of humanity itself. Most interestingly,  note that any measures are for the slowing of Covid-19, not the elimination of this deadly virus as such. More on that later.

Gatherings of people  —for  whatever reason —are discouraged, even banned by anxious governments being overwhelmed by developing cases of Covid-19.   Sports events, the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo….all cancelled or postponed, take your pick.

  In some jurisdictions huge fines are being issued for ignoring this perhaps  critically-essential   ‘behaviour”— for survival.

Reduction in sizes of groups  and much smaller groups of people congregating— even in the outdoors  are recommended —or even ordered by law.   Various jurisdictions went from  500, to 200, down to   50, 10, 5,  and  even  2  persons.    The pressing  idea is “Fewer persons equal a  lower infection rate and slower spread.
“Flatten the curve” is the battle cry in this newly-declared  war.

Persons sharing  their coughs, sneezes , touch and  physical contact  with others when  displaying any symptoms of illness  are  encouraged to GO HOME and STAY THERE  at all times.

Much controversy is involved,  since little genuine data has yet to  be collected on Covid-19  a.k.a.  Nova Corona virus,   (Covid Sars 2  –a new mutated  ‘relative’ of Sars.)   Remember that one?
This one  is worse. Much worse.  This is what it looks like.

SO:    How far apart will YOU stand while out in public?  

The Covid-19 virus knows.  So do the cops.  And here you thought only the shadow knows…. 

What can YOU do?

Stay Safe. Stay HOME as recommended by health authorities.  Wash your hands often and well.  Cough into your sleeve.   Stay home  ESPECIALLY if you have any symptoms….get INFORMED and get TESTED if necessary. 

*Stay HEALTHY.*

Above all,,,,

Maintain a responsible habit of social distancing  from others out in public.  Protect yourself and others. Your family, your friends and the public.  help others do the same.
Stay at least six feet away –better than  six feet under.

 

*How Long will the Global Pandemic Last? 

The short answer is:  Only God knows.   Any answer is simply speculation, an educated  guess. Why?  because nobody knows for sure. Researchers are on it globally.  Second and third waves may  occur. Reinfecton may occur.
Bottom line, we believe that  Everything depends upon starving the virus of victims.

Let that sink in and stay tuned…
