Morgellons I, II and III: Progression of BioNanoTech or GNR
I believe Morgellons exists in three phases. The first phase involves the pre-replicator and the replicator viral package in the form of a Virophage. The second phase involves the use of Baculoviruses in vaccines and in foods, microspheres and integration of inorganic materials. The third phase involves self assembling nanoparticles making the integration process easier. This MS2 was the first phage to be used, then RNA became the vector for introducing foreign DNA, by way of insects, phages, microspheres and finally nanoparticles. This was the first computer package, went right along with the plan for the computer/human interface, where we are now. Viruses can mutate, that is what they do. They can be latent and only show themselves when temperature, chemicals, bacteria or viruses are present. Viruses in phages are used to kill bacteria or other viruses, however this is not how these genomed bacteriphages or virophages are used. They are used as vectors, like insects. But, they were easier to distribute anywhere in the environment, in the wild, in fields of study or in the air. Then, came the wonderful idea of putting them in pesticides, then in aerosol operations hidden in between what is called Climate Change Operations. How would we ever know? The Congress approved for weather modifications and other uses. It is the other uses which took center stage. There was a plan all along for human genetic modification. Some are adapting well; Morgellons sufferers are not.
Morgellons involves this phage, and the foreign DNA stored in its head. This was not a virus to kill bacteria, it was a package, a foreign DNA package to change the cytoskeleton. This involves the heart, lungs, skeletal muscle, muscle itself, nuclei, testis, osteoblasts, lens, lacrimal gland, smooth muscle and liver. They are transmembrane proteins which change the inner core of the cell membrane. Many transmembrane proteins are involved. And they are made of different substances, elements and polymers.
Morgellons I is the initiator of one type of replicator, initiated by RNA vector virophage. This one was made from DNA from other organisms. When the protocell for life, primal amoebas was formed this was used, in the environment and in humans. This form has transmembrane proteins and genes from plants, insects, other animals and archaea. This image shows this in a mouse, but it shows you the size of things, like muscles and nuclei etc.:
It was found with the MS2 phages that a round ring form could be made. This is the transmembrane ring. This is able to form inside cytoskeletal cells, including blood cells once it gained entry into the cell it forms a ring around the inner core. This can be proven and is as we speak.
The M protein called the Transmembrane protein.
A more in depth look at this can point out the main issue of nuclear core proteins and transmembrane proteins, that make this insertion into cells possible.
The Nuclear envelope: Form and Reformation
The membrane system that encloses genomic DNA is referred to as the nuclear envelope. However, with emerging roles in signaling and gene expression, these membranes clearly serve as more than just a physical barrier separating the nucleus and cytoplasm. Recent progress in our understanding of nuclear envelope architecture and composition has also revealed an intriguing connection between constituents of the nuclear envelope and human disease, providing further impetus to decipher this cellular structure and the dramatic remodeling process it undergoes with each cell division.
To give you an idea of cell size, the amoeba fits in range of animal and plant cell:
Cell Biology/Introduction/Cell size
Size of Cells
Cells are so small that even a cluster of these cells from a mouse only measures 50 microns
Although it is generally the case that biological cells are too small to be seen at all without a microscope, there are exceptions as well as considerable range in the sizes of various cell types. Eukaryotic cells are typically 10 times the size of prokaryotic cells (these cell types are discussed in the next Chapter). Plant cells are on average some of the largest cells, probably because in many plant cells the inside is mostly a water filled vacuole.
So, you ask, what are the relative sizes of biological molecules and cells? The following are all approximations:
Assembly mechanism of recombinant spider silk proteins
Spider silk threads are formed by the irreversible aggregation of silk proteins in a spinning duct with dimensions of only a few micrometers. Here, we present a microfluidic device in which engineered and recombinantly produced spider dragline silk proteins eADF3 (engineered Araneus diadematus fibroin) and eADF4 are assembled into fibers. Our approach allows the direct observation and identification of the essential parameters of dragline silk assembly. Changes in ionic conditions and pH result in aggregation of the two proteins. Assembly of eADF3 fibers was induced only in the presence of an elongational flow component. Strikingly, eADF4 formed fibers only in combination with eADF3. On the basis of these results, we propose a model for dragline silk aggregation and early steps of fiber assembly in the microscopic regime.
Fibrous proteins are essential building blocks of life, providing scaffolds for cells, both intra- and extracellularly (1). Although most beneficial fibrous assemblies are formed reversibly, irreversible protein aggregation often leads to pathological conditions as found in a group of diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease (AD), Parkinson’s disease (PD), Huntington’s disease (HD), and the transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs; prion diseases), all of which include extremely stable, highly ordered fibrils termed amyloids (2, 3). In these so-called conformational diseases, partial misfolding of the involved proteins results in uncontrolled aggregation. However, not every irreversible protein aggregation leads to disease. A wide range of biomaterials are based on extremely stable, extracellular protein fibrils without pathological characteristics. For controlled extracellular fiber formation in biomaterials such as silk, a tightly controlled aggregation and assembly process is mandatory. Upon production, the silk proteins are stored preliminarily under conditions preventing their aggregation in the spinning gland. To form stable self-assembled silk, aggregation of proteins is chemically and physically initiated in spinning ducts with dimensions of only a few micrometers. A rich secondary structure is formed:
Fig. 1. Natural and artificial spinning ducts. (a) Schematics of the proposed natural spinning process of spider dragline silk. A highly concentrated protein solution is introduced and subjected to a hydrodynamic shear field. As the solution is pulled through the spinning duct, the pH is decreased (from slightly basic to slightly acidic pH). Further, phosphate and potassium ions (salting out) are added to the spinning dope. Simultaneously, water, sodium, and chloride (salting in) ions are extracted from the dope by the epithelium. The resulting silk fiber is rich in Î²-sheet secondary structure (29)….. http://www.pnas.org/content/105/18/6590/F1.expansion.html

Images from the “Recombinant Spider Silk Proteins” These involve microfluidic devices.
Microfluidic setups used in this study and resulting eADF assemblies. (Top) A laminar flow mixing device. No elongational flow component is generated along the flow direction. (Middle) A laminar flow mixing device with a bottleneck 1,000 Î¼m downstream of the laminar flow mixing region. A fluid element approaching from the left is subjected to an elongational flow just before the bottleneck. (Bottom) A laminar flow mixing device with a bottleneck at the point of mixing. An incoming flow element is subjected to elongational flow at the time of mixing with the fluids from the neighboring channels. Mixing always takes place by diffusion only. For eADF4, spherical colloidal assemblies are observed in all geometries. For eADF3, the third setup results in merged spherical assemblies and, depending on the flow rate, also in larger fibers, as shown in Fig. 3.
Fibers of engineered spider silk proteins assembled in a microfluidic device: micrographs of fibrous eADF3 (in water). Dark and bright spots in crossed-polarizers microscopy reveal areas of higher and lower molecular orientation. By reversing the direction of flow in the microfluidic device, eADF3 fibers can be collapsed into small coils. Obtained fibers are quite flexible and able to bear large curvatures. (Scale bar: 10 Î¼m.)

Abstract: Spider silk is an interesting biomaterial for medical applications. Recently, a method for production of recombinant spider silk protein (4RepCT) that forms macroscopic fibres in physiological solution was developed. Herein, 4RepCT and MersilkTM (control) fibres were implanted subcutaneously in rats for seven days, without any negative systemic or local reactions. The tissue response, characterised by infiltration of macrophages and multinucleated cells, was similar with both fibres, while only the 4RepCT-fibres supported ingrowth of fibroblasts and newly formed capillaries. This in vivostudy indicates that 4RepCT-fibres are well tolerated and could be used for medical applications, e.g., tissue engineering.

These are comparable to Morgellons as indicated from this Morgellons researcher:
“I even watched the strands form on the screen of my window (which I can’t get out BTW) that’s next to where I sit at my puter. I’d be sitting here and whenever my hands would get so sticky I couldn’t stand it, I started rubbing them out at the window and the air from the cooler would carry the stuff outside… but it attached to the screen for the most part instead.
The screen’s been cleaned… but even so, the same exact strands have appeared from the networking that’s embedded into the screen now from the gel. They appear again in my house too after I’ve cleaned them away… and they always end up turning an amber color.
Now these pics of engineered spider silk show me more proof than anything. It looks exactly like the segmented strands we’ve been lookin at forever in our samples. Just like this one of mine…”
“Compare it to the pic of the engineered spider silk and tell me they aren’t the same freakin thing…”
So, we see comparisons to spider silk, engineered filaments, polymers and nanotubes.
So, from phages vectoring in foreign like dna to spider silk, polymers, nanotubes and conjugations of all of these type fibers, one can see a secondary system is being integrated.
