I do not doubt that this is full of good intention, but the 5600x magnification is a joke.
I mean, optical microscope have a maximal magnification of 1000x, to go further you need to use electron microscopy (this is due to the physics of the light, no manufacturer can change that. and at 1000x you need to use an immersion lens, not mentioned here, but I will hope this has been used.
In conclusio, however well intended I would not trust the discussion of the minute details of the fiber structure.
I'm a new member who's been lurking for awhile. I just wanted to say that Cliff Carnicom explains his 5600x factor on the page where the photos are displayed. Perhaps a comment to him directly querying him on his formula (combination of astronomical/digital photography and optical magnification appear to give him his compounded magnifications) would be helpful for you. I find the structures in Carnicom's pix to match quite well the structures in Tamtam's 'silentsuperbug' video. That video showed virus-scale artifacts. I don't think the data is compromised by the 5600x notation on the level at which this forum is apprehending it.
For my own part, I've had about 1000 images plus the videos pass through my eyes (small compared to many of you, but a large enough sample to create a body of data); I experience recognition when I see these things from different contexts, therefore I know (since I'm a newbie with a keen sense of pattern) that something is presenting itself.
Thanks for such a good forum. You all appear to be doing a very good job. I think you folks are embodying exactly what needs to arise immediately in this world of globalizing challenges - a globalized cognitive emergent immune-system, made up of individuals with personal data-sets of unique experience, acting as a quorum-sensing group of intelligent cooperative bacterial convergent colonies (each of you) and now identifying a new (very difficult to see the new, BTW) invader-class of mutating predators (augmented by internal human parasites with technology) who are formulating a multi-pronged attack on our species.
You bring your eyes and your brains and your fingers and your courage and your vocabularies and your social networks and your passions to the table, and then you work out protocols for conversing and you share information, and I believe you are going to wake up those very scientists and business people and folks in governance (who want to get rid of the human parasites, too) and give them the tools they need to help address the threat.
This is only one of many that are showing their heads as we have a convergence of destabilizing factors washing into one another with unknown consequences while the net turns our new sensory layer on. Extractive opportunists await.
In "Return to Resistance" Raoul Robinson (Canadian agronomist, I believe) suggests that horizontal resistance (obtained through genetic diversity, and that is NOT confined to just DNA) is the key to population explosions of predators who find targets and feed through 'chemical keys'. "Resistance" is a good metaphor, and our immune systems, both collective - as in forums like this, (and human or even mammalian societies like the ones we're all part of) - and individual, as in the bodies of walking bacterial cooperating colony we inhabit and animate, constitute "The Resistance."
Highly specialized war-gaming microbes (and other pollutants) may not have a chance in the long run when faced with horizontal resistance on multiple levels. In other words, we're a highly successful species to date and we've still got a chance (though I ain't saying we don't have severe problems and the odds are kind of not in our personal favor at this particular moment...of course, what's one little cell in the soup of the species? just a statistic, as tamtam points out.)
I won't write much more than to say that I encourage immune-system building through clean fresh food and water, micro-flora and veg-based supplements, sunshine, oxygen and good aerobic exercise - e.g., if you're suffering from this disease, spend a year (or a lifetime) pretending you're an organic food hippie-health nut (doesn't mean you're a vegetarian, BTW); eat the oils and the salads and the seaweeds and the nuts; drink the vinegar and honey and water mix, and the lemon juice and olive oil; clean your colon; clean your blood; clean your lungs; clean your skin.
In other words, reduce the environmental load on your body's immune system so that it can adapt itself to the invaders (multiple, including stress, EMF, radiation, chems, etc.) and adjust your body's host-context to be less supportive of the predators. The supplements and drugs will work much better if you give them a decent body platform to catalyze, BTW - clean up the body/mind first, b4 you spend money and time on the treatments, or at least do it simultaneously. You need a personal biological baseline of a clean physical system or else even the treatments you're applying are ultimately inconclusive in their effectiveness.
In fact, you may try a suggested treatment and have it not work simply because some other toxic-syndrome in your body was disabling an internal cycle necessary to metabolize the treatment properly or 'more important' (excesses of tobacco, alcohol, sugar, proteins, heavy metals, etc.) to deal with on the "invader scale" than the parasite. In such a case, you may have mistakenly dismissed the treatment as ineffective when it was really your body's personal chemistry being an unsuitable stage for the desired immune response (i.e, destroying the parasite.) Your body needs the tools to focus on the invader; health of the as yet non-invaded body-systems can still supply many of those tools, even in affected patients.
Your host-colonies (your organs, your limbs, your nerves, etc.) are already your own unique, individual and highly-evolved bacterial/fungal bedrock with an agenda more favorable to your personal comfort-zone, since they benefit when you're happy, and they dislike the predators as much as you do (but they can't go to the grocery store and they don't have cash...). In other words, you're already walking around in the best bio-suit you could possibly have, but you need to optimize it ASAP. Civilizations that have maintained very high human densities prone to culture opportunistic pathogens, both social and biological (India, for example) have complex body-maintenance practices (yoga, diet, meditations) encoded into their culture, perhaps for a reason.
BTW, I'm not faulting anyone for having the disease, and I'm not claiming that the body is not impervious to these horrible attacks. There are very good reasons why our immune systems are compromised in the first place. Healthy people are also obviously at risk from outside destructive agents that are new to our environment. You've done nothing wrong if you have this illness - you may be genetically unlucky and simply have a chemical lock that this particular predator has the chemical key to open. That's not your fault. But the point is that Morgellon's is only one among many to come, and it behooves us to learn everything we can, as quickly as possible, about how to upgrade our personal bio-shields (our bodies) .
Now, begging your pardon - please excuse the long post and forgive the pedantics; I've had a lot of practice since I ran a health-food store for many years and have talked this story repeatedly, on many different levels, for a long time now. I may not be around this forum much, but I feel a very strong empathy for you and, scary as it all is, I think you/we've got a chance. In fact, I'm counting on you (I've got my own arenas, and you can count on me there, too)
You remind me and inspire me today to re-up my own somewhat slacking personal health practices. It's mid-August - we've got a good 4-6+ weeks to store more sunshine, eat fresh vegetables and fish as much as possible, go visit local farms, get clean air, ride those bikes and oxygenate those blood-cells - you know the drill.
Anyhow, hang in there!
