@Ketone Cop Thank you for sharing your experience. I just fear this will be way too nuanced and scientific for the no-virus people, who seem to think that unless you can rip out viral DNA with your bare hands, hang it out to dry, and then take a selfie, then viruses don't exist and everything is a lie.
I wonder what their PSR's would be:


To be honest, I have always favored Terrain Theory over Pasteur's crap. But something exists that causes diseases that we can't see. Viruses seem to be the only physical way to explain much of it. But I'm open to the fact it may be something involving DNA as a transducer of light frequencies affecting other organism's DNA sequences at an informational level beyond the physical that we can't measure. What gets in the way though, in my experience, is there is a protein container that can be physically observed upon treatment of most of these viruses pelleted by ultracentrifugation which can't be explained away by any other model. Why is that there, unless it has some kind of physical, real-world application?

Yeah. I never really understood why Terrain Theory and the existence of pathogens should be mutually exclusive. In fact they kind of need each other.

It seems that viruses are somewhat mysterious and as you said, maybe could be seen as carriers of (dna/rna) information that do have a physical reality. But it is likely that mainstream science screws up some things based on materialist assumptions and that there is more to all that than meets the eye. And it is here that it gets really interesting! But if you assume that viruses don't exist and all the research ever done about them is nonsense, you will NEVER find out what's going on. And I cannot help but think that maybe that's the whole point of spreading the no-virus theory among critical researchers.

From lived experience alone, it seems they are complementary indeed. Pathogens need terrains to infect and replicate, while terrains explain why some individuals are more or less resistant to infection. The recent no-virus paradigm looks like cointelpro to discredit those who oppose the covid and rna-injection nonsense.

Hey Mandatory Intellectomy,

I appreciate the effort and time you put into this research, and I'm grateful for starting this thread and everyone who joined.

I can only give you my experience and my view/thoughts based on it.

My father was a slim man, but still, with age during the day, his legs (up to the knees) could swell (accumulation of fluid). During one visit, I found him cleaning a wound on the tibia. He said that he injured himself two days ago and that the wound (approx. 1x2 cm, deep; to the bone) is constantly "oozing" and does not want to form a scab. There was redness around the wound (inflammation).

I helped him clean the wound (bacteria) and began to gently massage his leg to stimulate the lymphatic circulation ("drive away" the excess water) so that the blood circulates more easily.
I first massaged with very light pressure and away from the wound, as I increased the pressure and got closer to the wound, I was all in my thoughts; does it hurt, how hard can I press, so that sometimes I felt stabbing/poking in my leg.
After a while, the wound started to bleed. At first, there were small, barely noticeable, dots of blood, and then the blood flowed as if he had been injured at that moment. I sprayed the wound with Bivacyn spray, cleaned the surrounding skin of blood, and for me the treatment was over. (It was over for my father too, because a scab formed and the wound healed, in a few days, by a normal, natural process.)

I went home and the next morning I woke up with a swelling, on the same leg and in the same place that my father had. I got infected.
I was cured by a very non-medical method. WTF! Go! This is not mine. A firm, unequivocal rejection.
I can only assume what would have happened if I had accepted and "fed", worried and checked the situation every hour.
As it came, so it went.

I extracted several "premises" from this event:

- Human health should not only be viewed through the eyepiece of a microscope, but also through the eyes of Barbara Ann Brennan.
(by the way, I'm convinced that if, right now, someone invented an even more sophisticated microscope than Rife's and focused it on these "luminous balls"; somatids, microzyma, bions, protits... , one would discover an entire universe, or at least a galaxy.:lol: )

Barbara sees the human body as multi-layered structures of different colors. Heals with color modulation (light), and sometimes adds sound.

Examples:
Light;
CS said that during the "fall" of humanity, the 4D STS "burned" everyone's DNA (package of information) with a light ray (yellow?) at the same time.

Sound; Infrazvuk – Wikipedija
The impact of infrasound on human health

With the appearance of increasing human exposure to various forms of noise, the influence of infrasound on human health has been increasingly investigated in recent years, and thus a new vibroacoustic disease (VAD for short) was discovered. It is a chronic progressive and cumulative disease that occurs as a result of long-term exposure to low-frequency sound (below 100 Hz) and infrasound if the intensity was greater than 110 dB of the sound stimulus. This disease occurs, for example, in people exposed to too loud music at low frequencies or workers who operate machines that produce infrasound vibrations. The consequences and symptoms of the disease can be multiple: behavioral disorders, fear, visual perception problems, balance disorders, epilepsy, stroke, neurological damage, vascular lesions, gastrointestinal dysfunction, oropharyngeal infections, heart attack, suicide. Frequencies from 1 to 7 Hz are particularly dangerous and can even cause death.

Infrasound can also cause resonance of internal organs in humans. The adverse effects of excessive noise and vibration on pregnancy have long been described. The uterus mainly moderates their action and protects the fetus. But vibrations that have a direct effect on the uterus and the fetus in it, especially if they are long-lasting, severely damage the fetus. And infrasound from 5 to 10 Hz, which can occur in airplanes, can cause a miscarriage.[9]
(Light and sound are electromagnetic waves, related concepts; synchronization, coherence, resonance (in chemistry = mesomerism), interference...).



- Our structure is bodies:

1. Physical
2. Astral/emotional
3. Mental/ mind
4. Consciousness/ego

- "Package of information", which enters our structure, and improves the structure, we call updating / knowledge.

- "Package" that disturbs the structure, we call it disease or virus. So, a virus is a "package of information".

Example; crop circles. Plants that are lying down/bent over can be considered to be infected with a virus.

- Viruses exist.

- A package of information (knowledge and virus) can be "loaded" through each individual "body" (1-3), if there is compatibility and resonance.

physical body - carrier (microbe),
astral body - empathy (bluetooth),
mental-coherence (Wi-fi, miasma?) .

I consider consciousness as a corrective element or a source of interference (it can amplify/accept, reduce or completely cancel loaded information.

Also the usefulness/harmfulness of the "packet" depends on the initial configuration of the recipient. (Compare the effect of Bubble boy on Commodore 64 or some PC today).

(Regarding empathy. In another channeled material, it was advised that people in interaction with each other should develop compassion (sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others), and be very careful with the use of empathy (the ability to understand and share the feelings of another).

In other words. If you see someone drowning in a swollen river, do everything to help them, but stay on the firm shore (compassion), don't jump into the river (empathy).

Jumping into the river is for well-trained professionals.

This is also my understanding of the saying: "Be in the world, but not of it.")


It is obvious that in this campaign with COVID19, attacks were made on all entrances; injections - physical body, empathy (concern/fear for health: personal and loved ones) - emotional body, continuous bombardment / warfare with information - mental body. All in order to damage the fourth body - consciousness.

All of this up front, I've rambled on, just to say this: Looking into a microscope is only ¼ of the whole picture.

In order to paint as realistic/objective a picture as possible, we must use 3 basic colors: red, yellow, blue (consider them the information we get through the first three bodies) and two non-colors; black - which gives the image depth (all that characterizes; black sheep, unfaithful Toms, conspiracy theorists, pessimistic critics of all kinds...), and white, which gives the image perspective (Lightworkers of all kinds and purposes). I tend to associate white and black with the fourth body - Consciousness.

I have nothing against monochromatic images (specialization) if they are dynamic (allow and use non-colors; black and white). I do not accept a static, uniformly colored canvas (single-mindedness).

In reality, if my husband brought home such an "empty block" and hung it on the wall, I would, sooner rather than later, draw/paint something on it (this is called a compromise:evil:).

This is my pixel in the image called virus.
 
What gets in the way though, in my experience, is there is a protein container that can be physically observed upon treatment of most of these viruses pelleted by ultracentrifugation which can't be explained away by any other model. Why is that there, unless it has some kind of physical, real-world application?
Do you think that perhaps that outer protein is say a switch or receiver that can turn on the DNA of the virus? I’m just going off of what the C’s have said with proteins as receivers. So possibly, you could have all this “virus” DNA floating around waiting for the right signal, of which strange waves from 4D was mentioned.

Thanks for that explanation of how you isolated DNA while working at the national labs, it was well written.

So I looked at the site of one Mike Stone which seems to be a popular No-Virus-site that the no-virus-trolls are linking to. Uh boy. He provides lots of technical info, but it is basically just repeating the same old talking points and a huge jumping-to-conclusions and stating opinions as facts fest. And his "methodology" is monstrously ignorant of anything resembling nuanced thinking about science and the scientific method. He even shoots himself in the foot constantly by citing way more intelligent people, while deluding himself that they prove his point. Dunning-Kruger strikes again.

Now, here's the kicker: I mentioned earlier in this thread what an over-reliance on the left-hemisphere can do to people, and how they can get so deluded that it almost resembles schizophrenia or similar mental conditions. Seems I have found a prime example.

I wondered before why these people only go after viruses, because their arguments can be applied to many things. For example, the sequencing process used for viruses in many ways is the same that's used for other DNA, as far as I understand it.

Lo and behold, witness what happens when you get into this sort of left-brain deconstructive "logic" that R.G. Collingwood and many other philosophers have warned about, and that you can use to deconstruct everything under the sun, including yourself and your sanity.

Because, you know ...drumroll...🥁:

With the additional remark a while ago that viruses are "thoughts made manifest" that somebody already mentioned here, it is no wonder that these things would be so elusive.
(Though, it also occurred to me that pretty much anything physical is "thoughts made manifest" in one way or another, but this, being so small, just might be one of the easiest things to physically manifest for creatures like us?)

It makes me think along the lines of thoughts/emotions causing disease (fear, trauma, negative conditioning etc.) and these "viruses" being some sort of intermediaries for manifesting the physical symptoms. If they can come both from outside and inside, you can probably just create some of this stuff inside yourself by your thinking and manifest a "disease" that reflects your mental state or beliefs or whatever.
I understood the Cs statement (viruses can come from inside) in another way: As a virus is a bit of nucleic acids in a given combination (genetic code - information), it integrates itself in the human DNA (and in animals' DNA). Thus, it can be transmitted to the offsprings (genotype). The offspring can express it or not (phenotype).

Or they meant this: one can get a virus from outside, it integrates to the DNA, stays dormant, and can be re-activated if necessary (especially in stress, emotional or physical stress). Ex: labial herpes, zona, etc.

But the answers also show high variability - inside/outside, both infectious and not, so a "virus" can probably be a lot of "different" things.
Could it be a general interface... between densities? Between mind and body?
A communication/translation device? That's actually a lot like those exosomes.
- Between densities: yes, it's an information, a program sent by 4D to help humans (an all living beings) to adapt to environnement.
- Between mind and body: yes. New german medicine explains it very well. It's the psyche-soma dimension of diseases. Secondarily, bacterias too interven, in order to clean the inflammation site.
- A communication/translation device? That's actually a lot like those exosomes. Yes, exosomes (puts out) and phagosomes (takes in) are a sphere, same membrane as the cell's (as it is a bit of it), containing material to dissolve or to transport. So, when the information comes inside your body, in order to reach their destination (the nucleus), the viral codon (DNA or RNA) is taken in an exosome. It's like an envelope carrying the letter.

From my very limited knowledge in that area it seems to me that the subject is a very difficult and complex thing to study and understand and that there are probably a very limited amount of people on the planet who do know all the ins and outs of it and how to practically understand and utilize what is going on.

What I mean is that there are probably not many specialists who really know and understand what is going on (as far as can be known by us at this point) and even we or others who have studied it outside this very specialized training „deeply“, as outsiders, can‘t fully understand or grasp what those specialists know, see and understand practically and first hand.

I think it might be akin to a quantum physicist and people without the training and practical knowledge trying to understand what the quantum physicist understands and sees. Which can hardly ever be done by any outsider who hasn’t had the proper training and experience in the field. For example; you need to know and utilize high level mathematics among other specific skills.

Therefore, I think real specialist in that field like Malone are probably quite outraged, dismayed and frustrated by the oversimplified and often down right ignorant statements of some non-specialists about the topic since they as experts themselves KNOW how things work in this field first hand and can clearly see what is being said is just false and/or silly. The problem such specialists then face is trying to communicate their reasons/understanding for why what is said is wrong or silly to non-specialists, which is by definition never fully possible because most if not all those commentators lack the practical know how to understand what those specialist are saying, seeing and doing deeply.

One of the "viruses don't exist" "arguments" takes issue with electron microscopes and the fact that the process kills and damages the sample. In other words electron microscopes can't be used to observe a living cell or a living submicrscopic environment. This is extrapolated to argue that the images are somehow worthless and can't be used as evidence. Well I'm sure everyone has heard of gram negative and gram positive bacteria right? They are called gram negative or gram positive because they show up in slides died with a certain preservative that..... kills them. That's right, the bacteria are destroyed when they make these slides. So bacteria don't exist either?

basically just repeating the same old talking points and a huge jumping-to-conclusions and stating opinions as facts fest. And his "methodology" is monstrously ignorant of anything resembling nuanced thinking about science and the scientific method

Its like an ant death spiral for your mind!
By 25.10 all destructive processes will be reaching high and attempting to create a pole of destruction. Here it is worth remembering that interesting phenomenon where swarms of ants suddenly start walking in a circle and gradually the number of ants in this circle increases. It is a deadly circle, the ants in it eventually perish. But those who approach it are drawn in like a magnet and start walking in a circle too, and then die. So, at a time like this, it is very easy to be drawn into this vortex. And as a matter of fact, one should not get close to it, it is fatal. This time will create such forms of involvement in a destructive environment that many will find it difficult to keep themselves neutral.

There is another very good proof that viruses exist, which was done using a lysogenic bacteriophage like I worked with. I can't find the paper, but from what I remember, initially both the plasmid DNA in the host organism and the viral DNA obtained after stimulation of the host cell into viral production mode were characterized and shown to be identical.

What was done next was a radiolabeled nucleotide was introduced into a culture of bacteria hosting the viral plasmid DNA, and then the plasmid was induced to produce viral particles, which were collected by ultracentrifugation after filtration of the medium containing the bacteria and virus to remove the bacteria. Some of the resulting viral pellet was treated with proteases to remove the protein coating after rinsing heavily to remove any other remaining nonincorporated radioactive nucleotides (with several cycles of ultracentrifugation after each rinsing), and some of this DNA was then shown to be the same as the host plasmid DNA using restriction analysis.

The remaining DNA was then shown to have incorporated the radioactive nucleotides when exposed to a film emulsion, which produced an image that could only have been created by the labeled DNA.

The remainder of the initial viral pellet was then rinsed to remove any remaining free radiolabeled nucleotides, then used to infect a culture of the same bacterial species that did NOT harbor any of the same viral plasmid DNA as shown by gel analysis.

The culture was then processed and the DNA was run through a gel, which showed that there was now a plasmid present of the same size as the plasmid from the original bacteria from which the viral DNA was induced, and then the gel was exposed to a film emulsion, which showed a bright spot ONLY where the plasmid was, and nowhere else within the gel (which contained the host cell chromosomal DNA). Then this plasmid was excised from the gel and the DNA proven to be the same as the original host plasmid by restriction analysis.

That to me seems to be a pretty good proof of lateral transfer of genetic information by viral processes as we understand them.

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

All that said, I do not discount other factors that could be involved in this scamdemic, such as as the fact that some symptoms could be mirrored by electromagnetic radiation (and in one of my first posts ever I shared links to five papers that suggested this); that the PCR "test" is rigged to pick up *ANY* SARS virus anyone has ever been exposed to in their lifetime; and that many who became ill were not ill due to COVID but other factors. And I still am skeptical that a single virus was the causative agent of AIDS. I can share more of this on other threads.

I just wanted to try to put to bed the thought that "viruses don't exist", because there is plenty of research out there proving there is definitely SOMETHING moving DNA from cell to cell, and that proteins have been found to be involved in the process. As for there being other ways to share genetic information from cell to cell using other means, I'm open to that too. DNA is, after all, information - and there have been papers published showing that some of this information can be transmitted by light interactions from organism to organism.

These guys have lost the plot.

This points to another parallel between the type of mindset underpinning the no-virus theory and the flat-earth-theory. The bordering-on-pathological obsession with "isolation, purification and visualization" seems to reflect an inability to conceptualize abstract, non-physical forces and processes.

In the C's session 29 August 2015, the C's suggested that this was related to more of a 2nd-density perception of the world, perhaps more characteristic of an OP:
Q: (L) Okay. What other problems to we have to deal with? Oh... Well, let's just get on to the main one here. Hey! Is the Earth flat?

A: I can't believe you would even ask!!!

[..]

Q: (Perceval) What was very familiar to me about the whole Flat Earth thing after watching a video and looked at the theory and stuff was that the way people were presenting it was very similar to the Boston Bombing Actors thing. People take conspiracy theories to extreme subjective levels. When we asked them about the Boston Bombing Actors thing, they mentioned disintegration. I think they said, "Pattern recognition run amok."

(L) Yeah.

(Perceval) It's pretty much the same thing, ya know?

(Pierre) I had a question about the genesis of this Flat Earth movement was due to one guy pretty much. It has some stigmas of a deliberate, coordinated psyop. So, does this Flat Earth theory come from one mind, or is it a deliberate concerted enterprise?

A: Recall your intuition, Pierre!

Q: (Pierre) My intuition that it had all the stigmas, all the marks, of a deliberate and coordinated...

A: No! 2nd density perception.

Q: (Perceval) They were not talking about your intuition that it was a psyop, but your intuition about 2nd density perception.

(Pierre) Ah, okay.

(Perceval) Laura, you were talking about it being like a 2d...

(L) It was Pierre's idea. I just brought it up on the forum.

(Pierre) So, the intuition was that there is some analogy between density and dimensions. In 2nd density, things like horses and dogs can only see in 2 dimensions. In 3rd density, we human beings can perceive 3 dimensions. Organic portals recently graduated into 3rd density from 2nd density are only used to these 2d worlds, and they have difficulties to perceive or live with 3 dimensions. So the Flat Earth idea appeals to them.

(Perceval) Maybe it's not so much that they have "problems with 3d", but that there's a harking back to 2d.

(L) Well, that would mean they would have problems with this reality.

(Perceval) Yeah, but not in a strict sense like in terms of being able to navigate in 3 dimensions like a dog can. They have no problem walking around doors or whatever.

(Chu) But in a deeper, more abstract way...

(Perceval) Yeah. Maybe they're thinking would tend towards 2d.

This might help to explain why they have difficulty accepting any evidence which is based on complex modelling and more abstract methods.

In a similar way to an insistence by flat-earthers that the earth is flat because it LOOKS flat from the visual perception of the human eye, the no-virus folks deny the existence of viruses because they cannot directly purify, isolate, and visualize them. They are absolutely bound to materialist methods and interpretations of the data. If we consider that some of them might be OPs, then it would make sense that they may not actually have the capacity to think of it in any other way.

I was reading the comments to the latest show Objective:Health - Is No-Virus Theory a Psy-Op? -- Sott.net and began to write a comment, but since the comment proposal does not stick to the box any longer. As this thread, has dealt with virus vs no virus, I will leave the comment here. Compared to the original, there are only minor changes., but I have inserted one image, and I might have written it all differently had I followed and responded to this thread alone.

Considerations related to the concept of viruses
The word "virus" appeared 820 times in a search on the United States Patent and Trademark Office website. [Link]. Similarly, on patents.justitia.com there were several pages [Link]

Then I went to the site of the European Patent Office [Link] searched for "virus", but limiting the search to text and abstract, "virus" appeared in 168,263 results [Link] While in 41,041 instances, "virus" appeared in the title alone [Link].

On the Wiki on Genetically modified organisms [Link], "virus" appears 74 times. In the Wiki for genetic engineering techniques [Link] virus appears 17 times, and one paragraph dominates:

Transduction
Main article: Transduction (genetics)Transduction is the process by which foreign DNA is introduced into a cell by a virus or viral vector.[43] Genetically modified viruses can be used as viral vectors to transfer target genes to another organism in gene therapy.[44] First the virulent genes are removed from the virus and the target genes are inserted instead. The sequences that allow the virus to insert the genes into the host organism must be left intact. Popular virus vectors are developed from retroviruses or adenoviruses. Other viruses used as vectors include, lentiviruses, pox viruses and herpes viruses. The type of virus used will depend on the cells targeted and whether the DNA is to be altered permanently or temporarily.

Considering the number and age of the patents, the model of what a virus is and does, appears to be working. If someone denies the concept of viruses, what is it that was patented and appeared to be working?

Virus or no virus: Is it a matter of perspective, like when a child having learned the rudiments of physics and chemistry comes home and tells mum and dad that the chemistry teacher says a breakfast table is mainly made of molecules each consisting of hydrogen, carbon, and oxygen, while the physics teacher says that molecules are made of atoms, and that atoms are made of electrons, protons and neutrons, and that these compressed to the density present in a neutron star would reduce the table to a very tiny size indeed. Is the child right? Well, yes, but we continue to use our table.

If interested, the Wiki on the neutron star has: [Link] "Neutron stars have overall densities of 3.7×10^17 to 5.9×10^17 kg/m3 (2.6×10^14 to 4.1×10^14 times the density of the Sun), [c] which is comparable to the approximate density of an atomic nucleus of 3×10^17 kg/m3.[30] [...]" In a m3, there are 1000 litres of 1000 cm3, which gives a 1,000,000 cm3 in a m3. A cm3 would then have a density of 3.7×10^11 to 5.9×10^11 kg/cm3. That is quite a lot, but in a white dwarf the density is less, "A typical white dwarf has a density of between 10^4 and 10^7 g/cm3" or between 10 and 1000 kg/cm3. Given such densities, what would be the volume of your table?

Perhaps a problem with viruses is that we can't perceive them easily with our senses. But here we have an analogy in the electromagnetic spectrum [Link], understood as ranging from 1 pm (10^-12 m to 100 x 10^6 m We can only perceive a tiny fraction, the visible spectrum [Link] (ap. 380 nm to 750 nm)- However, we can still infer the existence of and make use of many other wavelengths, as we do in radio and microwave technology.

Mentioning the density of matter and the lengths of electromagnetic waves, what about dust? The Wiki of "Particulates" [Link] has a chart of their sizes relative to each other. The current model of a virus puts viruses within the range of "Suspended Atmospheric Dust" while there is an overlap with "Soot", "Tobacco Smoke" and "Smog".

1659215382799.png

There is also a Wiki on aerosols [Link], defined as "An aerosol is a suspension of fine solid particles or liquid droplets in air or another gas.[1] Aerosols can be natural or anthropogenic" that informs us they are typically less than a micrometer. The Wiki on micrometer [Link] then explains that this is usually the scale used to describe the size of cells and bacteria. These we can observe in a microscope quite easily.

Under bioaerosols [Link], they say that these range in size from 10 nm for viruses to 100 micrometers for pollen. This is actually interesting since nanomaterials [Link] are listed as having sizes between 1 nm and 100 nm. About the mechanical properties, they say: "The ongoing research has shown that mechanical properties can vary significantly in nanomaterials compared to bulk material. Nanomaterials have substantial mechanical properties due to the volume, surface, and quantum effects of nanoparticles." This indicates viruses, as depicted in the conventional model, due to the very small size might have properties, that are still to be fully understood, and even may vary from virus to virus and perhaps dependent on their spacial configuration of their components. If such unusual properties indeed do exist, they might change our current models of what viruses are and are capable of.

Nano materials are used in nanotechnology [Link], which has produced many applications. Similarly, there is a field called nanobiotechnology [Link]: "Nanobiotechnology, bionanotechnology, and nanobiology are terms that refer to the intersection of nanotechnology and biology.[1]" The size of viruses, as presented by the current model, places them within the range of study and use in nanobiotechnologies, if anyone would have the know-how. The aforementioned patents indicate that some do.

Does the idea of viruses challenge human imagination?
Did you know that negative numbers were not commonly accepted until rather recently. The Wiki on negative numbers [Link] informs us: "Prior to the concept of negative numbers, mathematicians such as Diophantus considered negative solutions to problems "false" and equations requiring negative solutions were described as absurd.[6] Western mathematicians like Leibniz (1646–1716) held that negative numbers were invalid, but still used them in calculations.[7][8]"Is it possible that there are concepts in other areas of science that like negative numbers offer similar obstacles? Is viruses one of them?

The duck test
There is a test called the duck test: [Link] "If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck." The problem is that not only are there many kinds of ducks, if we accept the idea of a duck as understood in English. Worse, there are different names for a duck in different languages. A person not knowing English would have to learn the language to find out what a duck was. Similarly, the question of the existence of viruses or not, no matter what one thinks is an opportunity to learn biology, biochemistry, genetics, and nanobiotechnology, although it could take lifetimes, as the combined research into these fields have taken thousands of people all over the globe millions of hours to do.

Synthetic biology, genome sequencing and viruses
As I was writing the comment, I looked up a few terms and words, which then led to the subject of synthetic biology. Below are links and notes.

"Testing of understanding by building is the shortest path to demonstrating what you know and what you don't." Drew Endy, Synthetic Biologist and former Civil Engineer, Department of Stanford University 9 Aug 2011 Synthetic Biology Explained, YouTube at 6:13 in

"viruses are probably the most 17.09 powerful tool 17.10 emerging in life science like there's 17.12 there's some amazing areas to go and 17.14 work in whether it's enzyme design 17.16 metabolic pathway engineering but but if 17.19 you want to build organisms 17.21 start with viruses and we're i believ 17.24 it turns into the app store of biology 17.27 because viruses are essentially usb 17.29 sticks they just load programs 17.31 into cells but there's no standardized 17.33 usb port in cells so 17.35 they come in a lot of different shapes 17.36 and sizes so you know keep your eye on 17.39 viruses"
Andrew Hessel has a small company, Humane Genomics, that aims to synthesize viruses that can combat cancer.

That was all for the comment to the SOTT article. I chose not to be direct, but decided to come up with angles that could be explored.
