REPORT OF A SIGNIFICANT FINDING AT MRGNovember 12, 2011 by Larry V. Meyer
Morgellons Research Group is pleased to announce preliminary findings of what we feel will be a significant discovery in Morgellons Syndrome research.
During the Fall of 1998, residents of Central and Northwestern California were making a curious observation. I myself was among this unfortunate group. Large multi-engine tanker type aircraft, later identified as the Boeing KC-135, were seen leaving dense white persistent contrails in the sky over the Sierra foothill towns of Paradise and Magalia, California. Within hours the populace of these communities overwhelmed the Emergency Room of the local Feather River Hospital with a chronic cough and upper respiratory distress. This event was reported in the local newspaper, THE PARADISE POST. The following morning as the wife and nurse of a local physician and I watched from the parking lot of the Magalia Post Office, this aerial activity was repeated; the possibility of a connection to the chronic cough was discussed.
Later an early contributor to the popular internet Carnicom Forum reported a significant observation from Atlanta Georgia. He reported having spent an early Spring day at the seasons first outdoor event. As I remember, that evening, needing to speak with his son who was in his upstairs bedroom, both were shocked at what they saw as Dad entered the field of a “black light” illuminating a poster on the bedroom wall. Dad, who called himself Dijemon on the Carnicom Forum was fluorescing bright blue from head to foot!
Having both long (“black-light”) and short wavelength Ultra Violet test equipment in my Gemological Lab I decided to see if by chance there could be a connection with “fallout” from the aerial persistent contrails, by then being called Chemtrails. There was! Under short-wave illumination the dyed pattern in my shirt and a sheet of printer paper glowed brightly but I was alarmed when I turned on the long-wave lamp and saw the entire room respond. A bright blue trail was seen from the entrance door extending throughout the room. Everything in the room including myself was fluorescing!
Collecting specimens of the fluorescing material for a microscopic examination revealed a barely eye visible, ball-like, thread-like tangle of opaque white fibers with an occasional black “tracer”. A tangle of miniature monofilament fishing line may come to mind.
A few years later, a Paradise, California area artist contacted me wanting to share his interesting observations. We met in his home where we used my equipment to collect several specimens in a clean glass vial. The artist relocated in 2003 and the sample bottle with it’s specimens were kept in dark storage until earlier this year. When once again examined, the sample bottle was found to contain a live unfamiliar specimen and numerous colorful fibrous artifacts currently under investigation.
The sample was shown to a Northern California Medical Scientist who advised the sample bottle not be opened but sealed and sent to a lab. The specimen was sent to me for processing several months ago. I immediately recognized many of the specimens as similar (same as) the as yet unidentified colorful “fibers” common to airborne samples and the lesions of Morgellons sufferers.
As for the “MRG Bug in the Bottle”… it very well may be the Holy Grail of Morgellons research. Shown here for the first time, the opinions and recommendations of fellow researchers is invited:

USE THIS PHOTO TO “ZOOM IN” ON THE FIBRILS:
The “ball-like” structure to the left of the “bug” is thought to be where it emerged as a very small organism:
Dead and somewhat desiccated, this artifact is thought to be involved in the etiology of the Morgellons Syndrome. Shown here at 150x, it is split open laterally. The length to width ratio was much greater while alive:
Your thoughts and suggestions are solicited at this time.
Artifacts presented here appear to have a connection with Morgellons syndrome.
- All specimens shown on these pages have been found in the environment of Morgellons sufferers — be it airborne or found in bedding or exuded/erupted from a dermatological lesion.
- All photographs presented are photo-micrographs shot with microscope/camera combinations, many at below 100x magnification.
- None of the artifacts shown here have been identified, to date, though having been presented to a variety of professional specialists.
WE EAGERLY SOLICIT YOUR IDENTIFICATIONS AND OPINIONS.
