The Scent of Illness and Death: The smell of fungi eating rotting humans

The Scent of Illness and Death: The smell of fungi eating rotting humans

Fungi or molds are the true ouroboros of nature.

After all, fungi eat illness and death, and in doing so, create new life.

I find the concept of fungi controlling the cycle of destruction and creation highly intriguing. I often ponder the biological processes that govern these laws of nature and their filamental connections to human beings.

In my capacity as a certified mold inspector and remediator based in the United States, I am well-versed in identifying mold (fungal) infestations in homes. These infestations often manifest as a specific odor reminiscent of decaying construction materials.

Repeated exposure to this distinctive scent has honed my detection skills over the span of a decade, allowing me to identify it with almost flawless accuracy.

The other day, it occurred to me: Wouldn’t humans with fungal infections or diseases produce a similar scent of decay or rot?

A brief online investigation confirmed my hypothesis!

Many studies have shown that humans demonstrate a proficient capacity to recognize and respond suitably to scent signals indicating danger such as certain chemicals resulting from biological decay processes to evoke avoidance (Rozin et al. 2000). Researchers have found that certain volatile compounds or smell hazards can be divided into two categories based on the human emotions associated with microbial threats (e.g., organic decay, vomit or feces) and nonmicrobial hazards (e.g., predators, fire, degraded air, and poisons).

For example, the smell of smoke would elicit fear that a fire is nearby and you need to move away or flee the area, while the smell of rotting garbage or moldy drywall will cause a disgusting emotion as the person inhales these VOCs. The reason is studies have shown that each class of threats is associated with a different underlying emotion such as disgust or fear/panic, which could indicate the level of threat.

This powerful smell detection system in animals and humans serves as an evolutionary defense mechanism deeply ingrained in our subconscious minds over millennia. The scents of decay, emanating as volatile compounds, serve as environmental cues for all living beings, including microorganisms, animals, and humans.

When we inhale, these odor molecules travel through the nasal passages and reach the olfactory epithelium, where they bind to the receptor proteins. This triggers a series of chemical signals that are sent to the brain, specifically the olfactory bulb, which processes and interprets the information to identify the scent.

While some scents signal the presence of food, others indicate potential threats such as predators, pathogens, fires, or even kin relationships.

Researchers have found that many individuals have reported experiencing a distinct change in their sense of smell when they or a loved one falls ill. This phenomenon is not merely coincidental; rather, it is rooted in the intricate connections between our olfactory system and our overall health.

I know this smell all too well.

When I was a young teen serving out my community service sentence in a senior citizen home, I could vividly remember this distinct smell as I walked down the lonely concrete halls.

This smell was not pleasant. It was a mixture of urine, feces, and rotting flesh.

As I served out my 30-day sentence, I felt every time I walked into that facility that I was walking on a narrow ridge between the shadow of the valley of death and life.

The next time I came across this unique scent again was in the ICU room of a hospital when my father had almost died from alcoholism at 52.

As I watched the nurses pump the shit out of his blood as he lay there incapacitated and near death because his liver gave out, that strange smell hit my nostrils bringing back memories of the nursing home.

Again, I realized where I was.

But this time I was a visitor witnessing my father’s life being dragged into the valley of death. As if they had, the legions received a notice of his impending doom coming to feast on his barely living carcass.

Today as I look back, I’m much more educated about human biology, health, disease, and death. As it relates to the scent of death, I have found an interesting correlation that explains this phenomenon.

What I found is that scent can be a powerful indicator of understanding the science of illness and death.


Our sense of smell, also known as olfaction, is a powerful and often underappreciated sense that plays a crucial role to detect and differentiate between a vast array of scents, from the pleasant aroma of freshly baked cookies to the pungent odor of rotten eggs and even infectious diseases.

Clinicians have long recognized that most infections produce distinctive odors associated with a particular disease. In fact, each disease has a specific smell that is almost always associated with a rotten or decaying scent as if we are slowly being eaten alive, which appears to be the case.

In the human body, microbial organisms generate a variety of volatile substances, and different smelly compounds like alcohols, aliphatic acids, and terpenes. Research into the emission of VOCs resulting from microbial activity in bodily fluids and organs, which are then released through breath, urine, feces, and sweat traces back to the early 1800s.

The reason is that beyond exhaling air, your breath contains volatile compounds (VOCs) originating from various bodily organs that act as environmental signals (magnets) to nearby predators, pathogens, and kin.

If we have a fungal disease in one of our organs, they will emit these VOCs through our breath, sweat, skin, urine, feces, and vaginal secretions. But our blood is the most important source for these pheromone signals in the form of bodily odors.

For example, it’s common to experience morning breath, particularly if you’ve slept with your mouth open. However, bad breath or halitosis can also be a sign of underlying health issues such as gum disease, respiratory infections, or even digestive problems.

Persistent bad breath that doesn’t improve with regular oral hygiene measures like brushing and mouthwash could indicate an underlying issue such as infections in the sinuses, throat, or lungs, requiring medical attention from a healthcare professional.

When we smell these odors of other people, they are called pheremones which are small volatile organic molecules that animals and humans use to communicate. Pheromones are clinically defined as “substances which are secreted to the outside by an individual and received by a second individual of the same species, in which they release a specific reaction, for example, a definite behavior or a developmental process”.

Pheromones play a critical role in signaling and choreographing interactions between fungi mating partners during sexual reproduction.

Meaning, that certain smells give off a magnetic cue for fungi within the human body that they should start having lots of sex and reproduce more offspring, which would require that the increased fungal population needs more food to feast upon.

My theory is that this increased fungal load creates fermentation within our blood and organs which morphs this symbiotic relationship into a parasitic one leading to illness, disease, and eventually death. These illnesses caused by fermentation create a unique rot or decaying odor that we have the innate ability to detect.

Interestingly, I have found that research has revealed that certain illnesses can alter a person’s body odor, making them emit distinct pheromone scents that can be detected by others, even at a subconscious level. This ability to detect sickness through pheromones may have evolved as a survival mechanism, allowing us to avoid contact with individuals who are ill and reducing the risk of spreading disease within a community.

For example, researchers have found that certain infections like tuberculosis can create a unique odor in the patient’s sweat and even metabolic disorders such as phenylketonuria can result in a musty odor in the individual’s breath or skin. A fruity or rotten apple-like odor might indicate poorly controlled diabetes.

In some cases, organ failure can contribute to bad breath. Kidney failure, for instance, may produce an ammonia or urine-like odor, while serious liver disease can result in musty or garlic-like breath.

Another notable example is the use of scent analysis to detect early signs of certain types of cancer through breath samples. By analyzing the volatile organic compounds present in exhaled breath, researchers have been able to identify specific scent markers associated with different types of cancer, enabling early detection and intervention.


Our olfactory senses have the remarkable ability to detect subtle changes in the body’s chemistry, even after passing. The unique scents that accompany different stages of decomposition can provide valuable insights into the time of passing and the processes at play within the body.

Before death, the human body undergoes a fascinating series of changes that can be detected through various senses, including smell. When a person is diseased or near death, the breakdown of cells and tissues initiates a complex biochemical process that releases volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the surrounding environment. These VOCs are responsible for the unique pre and post-mortem scent that evolves.

Initially, the absence of vital functions such as circulation and respiration leads to a lack of oxygen supply to cells, resulting in anaerobic metabolism and the production of compounds like putrescine and cadaverine. These compounds contribute to the characteristic early-stage scent of death, often described as sweet and sickly.

As time progresses, microbial activity intensifies, causing further decomposition and the release of additional VOCs such as skatole and indole. These compounds give rise to the distinctive foul odor associated with the beginning stages of decomposition.

When a living organism ceases to function, a complex series of biological processes begin to unfold, leading to the breakdown of tissues and the release of various gasses and compounds.

The stages of decomposition can be broadly categorized into fresh, putrefaction, decay, and dry remains.

During the fresh stage, the body undergoes immediate changes such as algor mortis (cooling of the body), rigor mortis (stiffening of muscles), and livor mortis (discoloration of the skin due to pooling of blood). As the process progresses into putrefaction, bacteria within the body begin to break down tissues, releasing volatile organic compounds that contribute to the characteristic odors associated with decomposition.

Moving into the decay stage, the body continues to break down, leading to the formation of adipocere (a waxy substance) and further release of gasses such as methane and hydrogen sulfide. Finally, the remains enter the dry stage, characterized by the mummification of tissues and a reduction in odor production.

Studies have shown that as the body undergoes the process of decomposition, distinct scents are released that can provide valuable insights into the timeline of when an individual passed away.

One notable case study involved analyzing the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted during decomposition. Researchers found that specific compounds, such as putrescine and cadaverine, increased in concentration over time, creating a unique scent profile associated with different stages of decomposition.

Health factors also play a crucial role in influencing post-mortem scent. Various health conditions and medications can impact the decomposition process and alter the odor profile after death. For example, individuals with certain illnesses may produce distinct chemical compounds during decomposition, leading to unique and identifiable post-mortem scents.

Researchers found that dying cells might signal their demise to nearby living cells by releasing specific metabolites, potentially orchestrating physiological responses to stress. Through mass spectrometry analysis of intracellular and extracellular metabolomes, they identified five metabolites involved in the process.

Additionally, they found adenosine triphosphate, previously known for its role in immune cell recruitment, to be upregulated after apoptosis induction. Importantly, the release of these metabolites was reduced when cells were treated with a pan-caspase inhibitor, suggesting that apoptotic cells actively release biologically relevant metabolites.

The authors explored whether metabolites released by dying cells were just incidental or reflect the cell’s activity before death. They found that spermidine levels were notably high in all models tested.

Spermidine is a naturally occurring polyamine that is present in various foods such as soybeans, wheat germ, and aged cheeses. In mammalian cells, spermidine is produced from putrescine, which is derived from ornithine, or through the oxidative breakdown of spermine.

It can also be taken up from the extracellular environment or expelled from the cell, potentially through membrane transporters akin to those found in yeast and bacteria, or through endocytosis/exocytosis mechanisms.

Spermidine is produced from putrescine.

A word that means “becoming putrid or rotting.”

This is the decomposition of carbon matter.

The scent of death.

Putrescine is found in all organisms and plants.

Its role is well documented to play a role in stress responses in plants and its absence is associated with an increase in both parasite and fungal populations in plants. It is what causes bad breath and vaginosis. Putrescine is found in semen and some microalgae, together with spermine and spermidine.

The intestinal microbiota represents the main source of spermidine synthesis within our body.

Studies of mice found that the concentration of spermidine in the gut lumen could be upregulated through oral administration of probiotics and the amino acid arginine, resulting in suppressed inflammation and improved longevity in old mice.

Due to its role in putrification, elevated putrescine has also been proposed as a biochemical marker for determining how long a corpse has been decomposing and also premortem diseases such as cancer. Scientifically speaking as it relates to humans, putrefying tissue of dead bodies breaks down our cells and proteins which undergo anaerobic splitting by bacteria and fungi creating a pungent scent that is emitted by putrescine.

Research on animals shows that it can function as a powerful chemosensory signal that prompts the perceiver to leave or avoid the area and that humans can identify threats via chemosignals. This unique scent has been studied to activate what is known as a “chemosensory warning signal” within humans activating threat management responses (e.g., heightened alertness, fight-or-flight responses).

The significance of scent in this realm cannot be understated, as it opens up a new dimension in forensic science that can lead to more accurate diagnosis, estimations, and conclusions in pre and post-mortem investigations.

Advancements in technology are paving the way for more accurate and efficient methods of determining illness, disease, and death based on scent analysis.

One promising development is the use of electronic nose devices, which are designed to mimic the human sense of smell and can detect and analyze volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted during decomposition. These devices have the potential to provide rapid and objective assessments of post-mortem scent profiles, aiding forensic investigators in determining the time of passing with greater precision.

Additionally, research is underway to explore the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to analyze complex scent data patterns and identify specific biomarkers associated with different stages of decomposition.


Understanding the intricate relationship between the science of the scent of illness and death can pave the way for advancements in the diagnosis and prognosis of people infected by fungi.

Our olfactory system can serve as a powerful tool in identifying early signs of infectious disease, human decay, and organ rotting found in various diseases.

As we’ve explored in this article, clinicians have long recognized and several studies prove that many infections produce distinctive odors associated with particular diseases.

The sense of smell, often overlooked in healthcare settings today, will play a significant role in detecting and monitoring illnesses in the future.

By harnessing the power of our sense of smell, healthcare professionals can potentially improve early detection, treatment outcomes, and overall patient care.

The implications for humanity could be profound.

Human Mutants: How Fungi/Molds Control the Bodies and Minds of Its Victims

Human Mutants: How Fungi/Molds Control the Bodies and Minds of Its Victims

“This is one of the most complex examples of parasites controlling animal behavior because it is a microbe controlling an animal – the one without the brain controls the one with the brain.” – David Hughes Penn State University

Within the cosmic battleground of Earth, an eternal symphony and conflict persist, entangling the bodies, minds, and souls of all living entities within a web of inescapable interplay.

There is no refuge from the intricate melody of life and the dark filaments of warfare that bind us, compelled by the magnetic forces of nature to partake in an unending song or engage in mutual combat.

Nothing and no one is immune.

This eternal war we can observe all around us in those victims who have lost the fight as they begin to lose their bodies and control of their minds.

Zombie ants are a perfect example of one of nature’s bizarre phenomena who lost the battle I speak.

Studies have found that they are simply infected with a fungus that takes over their bodily processes, and DNA, and corrupts them to turn them into obedient, mind-controlled servants.

Researchers found that these ants were – 50% ant and 50% fungus.

Zombies, mutants, or hybrids…

As many of you know who follow my work, I believe the same process happens to humans.

QUICK FACT: Did you know that molds/fungi have been found in 100% of autopsied human brains of people who died from Alzheimer’s disease? (Perhaps they were also taken over and their memories wiped clean by the same foreign invaders who stole the ant’s brain.)

And NO Mr. David Icke, they are NOT reptilian elites so please go back to the research desk…

Back to the ants…

A recent study showed how scientists examined the activated genes in the heads of infected zombie ants firmly attached to plants, comparing them with the heads of uninfected ants.

Their findings revealed that when ants were affixed to leaves but still displaying signs of life, only about half of the cells in their heads belonged to the ants themselves; the remainder comprised cells of the invading fungal parasite. Their cells had been combined in the blood, brain, head muscles, and fatty tissue.

During this period of zombie ant behavior, the parasitic fungus triggered a unique set of genes influencing neurotransmitters akin to serotonin, noradrenaline, and dopamine which exhibited heightened activity while the host ants manifested their peculiar zombie-like conduct.

For example, depletion of serotonin in ants is known to hinder proper foraging, and in other animals, disruption of these neurotransmitters can induce hallucinations and muscle spasms.  Serotonin is involved in numerous physiological processes in ants as it is in humans such as sensorimotor skills like sleep, memory, feeding, pain, motor activity, biological rhythms, and neural development.

In other words, the fungi put the ant into a sleep-like waking state as it manipulates the behaviors in its favor by influencing these neurotransmitter systems and specific chemical processes that allow it to take over the mind.

Again, I contend that the same thing happens in humans.

As you can see, serotonin regulates and controls many functions crucial to an ant and a human’s survival and as I mentioned, this is done by our microbiota via neurotransmission.

In 2020, a study found that human neurons are like “mini computers” communicating through a root-like structure inside our bodies called dendrites.

A dendrite means “a structure of nerve cells that comprise the human brain.” The word was coined by scientists who first studied the structure of the brain, they noted its strong resemblance to trees so they named it after the Greek Dendron, meaning “tree.”

These dendrites appear to be natures, animals, mammals, and humans’ super internet signaling pathways that we all share. A type of biological internet for communication and a whole host of other mechanisms such as parasitism and natural selection.

A textbook neuron resembles a leafless tree, with extensive roots, i.e., dendrites leading to a robust, bulbous base—the body.

Electrical signals, akin to water and nutrients, ascend through dendritic roots into the body, where a hump-like structure amalgamates all information. If the sound wave/electrical stimulation is strong enough, it travels down a solitary tree trunk—the output cable, or axon—before being relayed to another neuron via bubbles containing chemical messengers or electricity.

Studies have shown that human dendrites are electrically excitable, exhibiting backpropagating action potentials and fast dendritic calcium spikes.

Dendritic processes play a fundamental role in receiving information via transducing receptors (sensory neurons) or incoming synaptic contacts (conventional neurons). In the presence of weak input signals, the neuron discards the data. Neuroscientists commonly describe single neurons as “binary” or “digital,” reflecting their tendency to either fire or remain inactive.

Through the examination of individual neurons in rodent brains, scientists have recently uncovered that dendritic trees are not merely passive cables; instead, they are highly active components that play a crucial role in a concealed layer of neural computation. Some dendritic trees, for instance, can produce electrical spikes five times larger and more frequent than the conventional firing of neurons.

Rather than recording from a living, intact human brain, the research team decided to study fresh slices of the brain’s cortex removed from patients due to epilepsy or tumors. Utilizing brain tissue from two different patient groups helped them identify signals unique to each brain disease, allowing the researchers to unravel the fundamental computations of human dendrites.

A peculiar signal quickly manifested.

Human dendrites exhibited activity, but the electrical spikes rapidly diminished as they traveled toward the cell’s surface. In contrast, a typical neural signal maintains its intensity as it travels along the output cable to its next destination.

What’s even stranger is that dendritic signals relied exclusively on calcium ions to generate electricity, a significant departure from conventional neural signaling.

The researchers concluded;

“It’s like suddenly discovering a new species that consumes carbon dioxide, rather than oxygen, to sustain its activity—except that species is part of you. ”

This is EXACTLY what I believe is happening to humans.

This species they speak of I contend are fungi/molds that can control and kill their victims, whether it be an ant, pant, or human as they see fit based on these electrical and chemical signals I speak of such as the loss of serotonin.

This loss would create a specific sound wave frequency that the fungi would use for sensing purposes to repel or magnetize their victims like what I contend happens to people who contract Alzheimer’s disease (AD). A disease with currently 50 million victims

For example, new studies have suggested that serotonin loss in humans may be a key player in cognitive decline, rather than a side-effect of Alzheimer’s disease.

As it turns out, approximately 90% of the serotonin the human body produces by our microbiota is in the gastrointestinal tract, where it regulates several bodily functions via a serotonergic pathway. Studies have found that the serotonergic pathway is modulated by gut commensal microbiota components in our gastrointestinal (GI) tract where it manages and controls the gut-brain axis.

Meaning it is our microbiome (fungi) that manages and controls (immune system) our physical and mental health.

What scientists are finding is that the microbiome has signaling mechanisms within this axis that allow it to communicate with the gut and the brain. This is called a neurotransmitter and serotonin seems to be one of the the most important mediators in microbiota–host interactions.

The serotonergic system controls the GI tract and the central nervous system (CNS) physiology. When this pathway is disrupted or corrupted, the disruption results in a wide range of pathologies that are affected thus causing a wide range of brain and intestinal diseases.

The serotonergic pathway plays a crucial role in sensorimotor function, which combines two important components: sensory input and motor output.

Sensory input to visual stimuli involves the information received through our sensory systems, including vision, hearing, smell, taste, touch, and proprioception (the sense of body position and movement).

Motor output refers to the response generated by our body in reaction to the sensory information received. Sensorimotor skills are also influenced by individual experiences and learning.

Sensorimotor skills refer to the ability to receive sensory messages from the environment and our bodies, and then generate an appropriate motor response. These skills are crucial for our daily functioning and play a fundamental role in our overall development and interaction with the world around us.

It involves the coordination and execution of movements, whether they are fine motor skills (such as writing or buttoning a shirt) or gross motor skills (such as walking or throwing a ball). These movements are the result of complex interactions between our brain, muscles, and nervous system.

Each of these sensory systems provides us with essential information about our surrounding environment and our bodies.

Sensorimotor skills are acquired and developed through a process of continuous learning and refinement from infancy through adulthood. In infancy, sensorimotor skills are foundational for the development of other cognitive and physical abilities.

Babies learn to grasp objects, visually track moving stimuli, and explore their environment through touch and taste. As they grow, they gain more control over their movements and refine their sensorimotor skills to perform more complex tasks.

Through repetition and practice, individuals refine their abilities and become more efficient in performing specific tasks. This process is known as motor learning. For example, a novice pianist may initially struggle with finger dexterity and coordination but with practice, they become more proficient in playing complex pieces.

For example, our visual system allows us to see and process visual stimuli, such as colors, shapes, and movements. Our auditory system enables us to hear and interpret sounds, while our olfactory system helps us perceive different smells.

Similarly, our taste buds allow us to experience flavors, and our sense of touch allows us to feel textures, temperatures, and pressure. Proprioception, on the other hand, provides us with information about the position and movement of our limbs and bodies in space.

Studies have indicated a correlation between motor activity and serotonergic function, and the firing rates of serotonergic neurons responding to intense visual stimuli.

In addition to the natural progression of sensorimotor skills through typical development, some individuals may experience challenges or delays in the acquisition of these skills. Sensory processing disorders, for example, can affect how individuals perceive and respond to sensory information.

Animal models propose that kainate signaling negatively influences serotonin actions in the retina, potentially impacting the regulation of the visual system. The descending projections create an inhibitory pathway referred to as the “descending inhibitory pathway,” which may have implications for disorders such as fibromyalgia, migraine, and other pain disorders, as well as the efficacy of antidepressants in treating them.

A neuron that secretes 5-HT is termed as serotonergic. It is a very important neurotransmitter in the Central Nervous System but when it becomes impaired, or damaged, it decreases in this process causing sensory processing disorders. Hence, pathology ensues along with illness and disease.

5-HT in humans is extensively present in various bodily systems, such as the nervous, gastrointestinal, and cardiovascular systems. It influences a broad range of physiological and pathological conditions, including pain, sleep regulation, aggression, feeding, anxiety, and depression.

The disturbance of 5-HT signaling in various pain states has been observed in both basic research and clinical studies, suggesting a potential explanation for certain diffuse pain conditions. In certain neuropathic pain models, the baseline level of 5-HT in the spinal cord was found to be reduced.

Researchers have found that the disruption of 5-HT neurotransmission contributes to the decline in cognitive processes associated with aging, Alzheimer’s disease (AD), and various neuropathologies, including schizophrenia, stress, mood disorders, and depression. Also, people with autoimmune disorders like AIDS and similar diseases have significantly lower 5-HT and an increased rate of infections.

Multiple studies have affirmed the pathophysiological importance of the 5-HT system in AD, with several drugs enhancing 5-HT neurotransmission proving effective in addressing AD-related cognitive and behavioral deficits.

5-HT receptors, 5-hydroxytryptamine receptors, or serotonin receptors, are a group of G protein-coupled receptor and ligand-gated ion channels found in the central and peripheral nervous systems. They mediate both excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmission.

As I explained in my previous essay, recent studies suggest that vibrations caused by sound waves directly affect the ion channels in fungal cells, resulting in electrical activity. Other hypotheses propose that sound-induced electrical responses in fungi are linked to their role in communication, growth, or defense mechanisms.

As it relates to nature, scientists have identified that the main jobs of fungi are breaking down organic matter, and processing nutrients and chemicals in a commensal, symbiotic, or pathogenic relationship with its host. For fungi to thrive within a host, they must navigate a dynamic and often challenging environment, necessitating the capacity to perceive and understand their surroundings.

Under typical circumstances, predisposing host factors, like immune suppression, play a crucial role in the survival and propagation of pathogens within mammalian hosts. Once inside the host, these pathogens must contend with the host’s microbiota for essential nutrients. For opportunistic pathogens, breaches in the normal physiological barrier, whether in mammals or plants, serve as entry points.

Fungi have developed various virulence mechanisms to elude the host’s immune system, a topic thoroughly explored elsewhere (Collette and Lorenz, 2011). Sensing these external cues is necessary to adjust fungal morphology, metabolism, mating, and virulence. Furthermore, extensive reviews have delved into how fungi sense environmental cues such as nutrients, gasses, light, and stress (Bahn et al., 2007).

Fungal infections have become a significant medical challenge, and a team of researchers at Baylor College of Medicine has made a significant breakthrough in studying the short-term effects of fungal infection in the brain. According to a study published in the journal Nature Communications, the researchers discovered that Candida albicans, a common yeast and type of fungus, can cross the blood-brain barrier and trigger an inflammatory response in mice.

This response led to the formation of granuloma-type structures and temporary mild memory impairments in mice.

Researchers injected C. albicans into mice’s bloodstream and discovered that the yeast can cross the blood-brain barrier, triggering the activation of microglia cells in the brain. The microglia cells became highly active, consuming and digesting the yeast, while also producing molecules that caused an inflammatory response.

This led to the formation of a granule-type structure called fungus-induced glial granuloma (FIGG). The mice infected with the yeast showed impaired spatial memory, which improved once the infection cleared. Although the yeast infection cleared in about 10 days, the microglia cells remained active and the FIGGs persisted for at least 21 days.

These amyloid molecules are typically associated with Alzheimer’s disease.

“These findings suggest that the role fungi play in human illness potentially goes well beyond allergic airway disease or sepsis,” according to Dr. David B. Corry, professor of medicine-immunology, allergy and rheumatology and Fulbright Endowed Chair in Pathology at Baylor College of Medicine.

“The results prompted us to consider the possibility that in some cases, fungi also could be involved in the development of chronic neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis. We are currently exploring this possibility,” Dr. Cory said.

Since they do not have eyes and a nose to successfully adapt, fungi must be attuned to external environmental and biochemical factors to process this information to respond and identify unique host-specific elements. They do this by sensing and reacting to the host’s temperature, pH, gasses, nutrients such as sugars, amino acids, nitrogen, and other trace elements along with serotonin, which are all essential for the growth and viability of fungal symbioses or pathogeneses in every environment.

Given that the fungal cell wall maintains constant contact with its surroundings, the expression of receptors, such as pheromone receptors, on the cell wall surface becomes crucial.

Pheromone receptors are proteins that are sensitive to pheromones, which are chemical signals that organisms release to communicate with each other. These signals play a crucial role in various biological processes, including mating, territory marking, and social organization. Pheromone receptors are found in a wide range of organisms, from bacteria and fungi to insects and mammals.

In 1961, researchers noted that some “chemical messengers” act within an individual (e.g., hormones and “other excitatory substances” such as CO2), whereas others (i.e., “pheromones”) act between individuals via ingestion, absorption, or sensory receptors. However, fast forward to 2023, various studies have not revealed conclusively if humans create pheromones on their own.

Considering the chance that we do not create them on our own, the question arises: where do they come from?”

Pheromones in humans may be present in bodily secretions such as urine, semen or vaginal secretions, breast milk, and potentially also saliva and breath, yet most attention thus far has been directed toward axillary sweat. However, studies suggest that we can detect each other through unique smells produced by signaler pheromones

In fungi, pheromone receptors are particularly important for sexual reproduction. They are eukaryotic organisms that reproduce both sexually and asexually.

During sexual reproduction, fungi use pheromones to signal their mating compatibility with other individuals of the same species.

This process is essential for the fusion of specialized sexual structures called gametangia, ultimately leading to the formation of new genetically diverse individuals.

Here is an image explaining this biological process:

The typical lifecycle of fungi involves the following steps:

1. Pheromone production: Fungi release pheromones into their environment. These pheromones act as signaling molecules, indicating the presence and mating compatibility of the releasing individual

2. Pheromone reception: Potential mating partners have pheromone receptors on their cell surfaces. These receptors are specific to the type of pheromones produced by compatible mating partners.

3. Chemotropism: The receiving fungal cells respond to the pheromones by growing towards the source of the pheromone (a process known as chemotropism). This directional growth helps mating partners to come into proximity.

4. Cell fusion (plasmogamy): Once the compatible cells come into contact, they undergo cell fusion or plasmogamy. This fusion of cytoplasmic contents is a crucial step in sexual reproduction.

5. Formation of sexual structures: Following plasmogamy, specialized structures such as a zygote or a dikaryotic mycelium are formed, depending on the fungal species.

6. Completion of sexual reproduction: The sexual structures eventually lead to the formation of spores or other structures that can disperse and give rise to new individuals.

The entire process is tightly regulated by the interaction between pheromones and their corresponding receptors. The specificity of these interactions ensures that mating occurs only between compatible individuals of the same fungal species. The study of pheromone signaling in fungi has provided valuable insights into the molecular mechanisms underlying sexual reproduction in eukaryotic organisms.

These pheromone receptors not only facilitate chemotropism for mating but also serve other essential roles. These chemicals in the body are “electrically charged” — when they have an electrical charge, they are called ions.  ‘

The term “ion” finds its origin in the Greek language, specifically derived from the neuter present participle of “ienai” (Greek: ἰέναι), which translates to “to go.” In the realm of ions, a cation is associated with downward movement (Greek: κάτω pronounced kato, meaning “down”), while an anion is linked to upward movement (Greek: ano ἄνω, meaning “up”).

It is this ion channel that I believe is the main method that fungi use to exploit and corrupt once the negative charge ions become too imbalanced

An ion, as introduced by English physicist and chemist Michael Faraday in 1834, is a term used to describe a species that travels from one electrode to another through an aqueous medium. This concept was developed after a suggestion by the English polymath William Whewell. To understand the concept of an ion, it is necessary to delve into the world of chemistry and electricity.

In the realm of electrochemistry, ions play a crucial role. An ion is an atom or a molecule that has gained or lost one or more electrons, resulting in a net positive or negative charge. These charged particles are formed when an atom gains or loses electrons to achieve a stable electronic configuration.

The operation of batteries also relies on ion migration.

In a typical battery, chemical reactions occur at the electrode surfaces, resulting in the generation of a voltage. This voltage drives the migration of ions between the electrodes, allowing for the transfer of charge and the production of electrical energy.

During discharge, positive ions move from the anode to the cathode, while negative ions move in the opposite direction. This ion migration enables the flow of electrons through an external circuit, producing an electric current.

The term “ion” was coined by Faraday to describe the movement of these charged species during electrolysis. Electrolysis is a process that utilizes an electric current to drive a non-spontaneous chemical reaction. It involves the decomposition of an electrolyte, a substance that conducts electricity when dissolved in a solvent, typically water.

During electrolysis, an external electric current is applied to an electrolytic cell, which consists of two electrodes, an anode (positive electrode) and a cathode (negative electrode), immersed in an electrolyte solution. When the electric current flows through the cell, ions are attracted to the respective electrodes based on their charge.

The movement of ions from one electrode to another through the aqueous medium is what Faraday referred to as an ion catation. The term “catation” is derived from the Greek word “kation,” meaning “to go down.” This reflects the movement of positively charged ions, known as cations, towards the cathode.

On the other hand, negatively charged ions, known as anions, migrate towards the anode during electrolysis. These anions are formed when an atom gains one or more electrons, resulting in a negatively charged species. The migration of anions is often referred to as anion catation.

Anion (−) and cation (+) indicate the net electric charge on an ion. An ion that has more electrons than protons, giving it a net negative charge, is named an anion, and a minus indication “Anion (−)” indicates the negative charge. With a cation it is just the opposite: it has fewer electrons than protons, giving it a net positive charge, hence the indication “Cation (+)”.

In addition to their roles in electrochemical processes, ions are also essential for maintaining the balance of charges in various biological systems. In living organisms, ions such as sodium (Na+), potassium (K+), calcium (Ca2+), and chloride (Cl-) play vital roles in nerve conduction, muscle contraction, and maintaining osmotic balance.

The movement of ions across cell membranes through specialized ion channels allows for the transmission of electrical signals and the regulation of cellular functions.


Studies have shown that fungi are extremely polarized organisms that constantly produce internal electrical currents and fields that are generated by hyphae. Its growth requires a constant supply of proteins and lipids to the hyphal tip.

Researchers have proven that the individual hyphae of the filamentous fungi constantly perform cellular “monologue” and cell-to-cell dialog using signal oscillations to acquire or magnetically attract the nutrients it requires to grow and thrive within the host.

For example, studies have found how psilocybin reduces low-frequency oscillatory power in users’ brains, increases overall firing rates, and desynchronizes local neural activity. It indicates experiences correlate with the lagged phase synchronization of delta oscillations. Schizophrenia, which mimics symptomatically the psychotic effects of psilocybin, is associated with diffuse delta rhythms.

These oscillations create electricity which is one of the key factors shaping their growth and development. The hyphae become polarized and entrained as the branching of mycelium is induced by electric field frequency, which it uses to communicate and transport the raw human materials within the blood and central nervous system.

The electrical current helps fungi with the translocation of resources it gathers within the host using magnets and hydraulic pressure.

Recent studies have explored the potential of utilizing frequency-specific sounds as a viable substitute for chemical fungicides in combatting plant diseases. The research findings indicated that high frequencies possess the ability to impede mycelium growth, akin to the impact of high-pitched noises causing deafness.

Further investigation revealed noticeable morphological changes in the mycelium, providing insights into the mechanism. This suggests that certain sound wave frequencies can induce stressful growth conditions, presenting a sustainable approach to combating pathogenic fungal pathogens.

As signaling and metabolism in organisms are controlled by a precise ionic gradient across membranes, the disruption of this gradient contributes to cell death. This is a common mechanism exploited by natural and artificial biocides, including the ion channels gramicidin and amphotericin (a fungicide).

What is interesting and helps prove my theory is that researchers have recently found that 5-HT is a strong inhibitor of fungal growth.

So, not only are ion channels used to treat people with antifungal medicines, but supplementing with 5-HT in the serotonergic pathways can stop fungi from growing in the body and brain. As I mentioned, the serotonergic pathway is modulated by the gut commensal where 5-HT is biosynthesized with L-tryptophan (Trp) derived from our diets.

As I mentioned, the loss of serotonin or 5-HT causes a condition known as sensory processing disorder (SPD), which interferes with the typical processing of sensory information (stimuli) in the brain. This involves the processing of what you see, hear, smell, taste, or touch.

SPD may impact all senses or just one, resulting in heightened sensitivity to stimuli compared to the general population. These disorders can result in hypersensitivity or hyposensitivity to certain sensory stimuli, leading to difficulties in regulating behavior and responding appropriately to the environment.

For example, ants normally do not venture out solo and climb a big tree to nowhere destined to become its aerial deathbed.

Once the ant victim clamps down on the leaf, the parasitic fungus triggers a series of genes responsible for the degradation of the ants’ jaw muscles, resulting in the lockjaw effect. Simultaneously, it activates genes that suppress the ant’s immune system, facilitating the unimpeded growth and proliferation of fungal cells throughout the ant’s head tissues.

As the ants cease their struggle and succumb to the fungus, a staggering 75% of the cells in their heads transform into fungal cells.

The ant is no longer an ant but a parasitic fungus that has taken over an ant carcass, thus becoming a “zombie ant.”

During this period, numerous genes in the fungal genome related to ant host digestion, cell growth, and reproduction shift into high gear, marking the fungus’s transition to a rapid growth phase for the development of its reproductive stalk so it can shoot spores to infect other ants.

In another study from 2019, researchers found that at the moment of behavioral manipulation by the fungus, the host’s brain is not invaded by the fungus.

Instead, it invades other areas of the ant’s muscle tissue making them a co-pilot.

They discovered that despite not being invaded by the parasite, the brains of manipulated ants are notably different, showing alterations in neuromodulatory substances, signs of neurodegeneration, changes in energy use, and antioxidant compounds that signal stress reactions by the host.

I have often wondered if fungi/molds can do this to ants and other insects, why not humans?

After all, these tiny but deadly creatures have been around for millions of years and are well known for their industrious nature and strong social organization.

This so-called co-pilot stage may be what we witness in individuals with early-stage Alzheimer’s disease where the fungal cells eliminate and displace the human cells like it does the ant. Thus causing various pathologies.

At this stage, we call it dementia.

Ergothionine, a fungal-derived compound with known neuronal cytoprotection functions was found to be highly elevated in zombie ant brains suggesting the fungus, which does not invade the central nervous system, is preserving the brain.

Ergothioneine is a naturally occurring amino acid compound that is produced in relatively few organisms, notably actinomycetota, cyanobacteria, and certain fungi. Ergothioneine was first discovered in 1909 and named after the ergot fungus from which it was first purified.

The researchers found thousands of unique chemicals, most of them completely unknown. This, according to Hughes, is not surprising, since little previous work has mined these fungi for the chemicals they produce.

But what did stand out were two known neuromodulators, guanobutyric acid (GBA) and sphingosine. These both have been reported to be involved in neurological disorders and were enriched when the fungus was grown in the presence of the brains of its target species.

“There is no single compound that is produced that results in the exquisite control of ant behavior we observe,” de Bekker said. “Rather, it is a mixture of different chemicals that we assume act in synergy.

“But whatever the precise blend and tempo of chemical secretion,” she said, “it is impressive that these fungi seem to ‘know’ when they are beside the brain of their regular host and behave accordingly.”

Noted Hughes, “This is one of the most complex examples of parasites controlling animal behavior because it is a microbe controlling an animal — the one without the brain controls the one with the brain.

By employing metabolomics and controlled laboratory infections, we can now begin to understand how the fungi pull off this impressive trick.”


The research clearly shows that fungi can zombify an ant via a multi-prong approach. Meaning, there is not one specific method or neurotransmitter that the fungi use to manipulate its host.

Hence, it is hacking multiple bodily and mental processes to achieve its aim – Total Control.

To study this phenomenon, scientists use data sets called multiomics or “panomics” or “pan-omics” as a biological analysis approach to analyze complex biological big data to discover novel associations between biological entities, pinpoint relevant biomarkers, and build elaborate markers of disease and physiology.

The meaning of multiomics is  to study life in a synergetic way using data sets with multiple “omes“, like the genome, proteome, transcriptome, epigenome, metabolome, and microbiome. That is essentially what I’m doing in the creation of this essay but also using a multidisciplinary scientific and logical approach to my theory.

A 2023 “multiomic” study found the dysregulation of neurotransmitter levels and neuronal signaling. The researchers believe this alteration or corruption occurs during infection, which immediately triggers;

1 – differential expression of neurotransmitter synthesis and receptor genes

2 – altered abundance of metabolites and neurotransmitters (or their precursors) with known behavioral effects in ants and other insects, and

3 – possible suppression of a connected immunity pathway. We additionally report signals for metabolic activity during manipulation related to primary metabolism, detoxification, and anti-stress protectants.

The researchers concluded;

“Taken together, these findings suggest that host manipulation is likely a multi-faceted phenomenon, with key processes changing at multiple levels of molecular organization.”

What is important to understand is that these alterations in the body lead to changes in animal host behavior mostly referred to as manipulations, preceding a fatal change in behavior. For example, the infected zombie ants, they began to stop communicating with their fellow ants as they then left their nest and normal foraging trails venturing solo into the forest which is not natural.

In our human society, we can witness similar traits among the mentally ill or people who have a disease and the alcoholic and drug addicts of our world. Their bodies and brains have been altered or corrupted

Scientists speculate that the diverse alterations observed in hosts might serve as exploitable traits for fungal parasites. This strategy allows the parasites to exploit host behaviors and symptoms without the need for costly host rewiring.

They believe that these various changes may represent behaviors that can be easily coopted for manipulation by fungal parasites.

The parasitical fungi may be taking advantage of existing host processes and symptoms without relying on costly mechanisms to “rewire” their hosts.

The same process I believe occurs in humans with similar zombie-like traits.

The long list of diseases and addictions killing people worldwide makes me ponder if these same fungi are manipulating our thoughts and behaviors, which seems to be affecting almost everyone alive.

It is the alcoholic who cannot stop drinking the very poison that is killing them. (Globally an estimated 237 million men and 46 million women suffer from alcohol-use disorders. – WHO)

It is the obese person who for the life of them, cannot stop eating junk that will cause them to have a heart attack and die. (Worldwide, more than 1 billion people have obesity—650 million adults, 340 million adolescents, and 39 million children. – WHO)

Millions of people losing control of their bodies as they lose their minds.

Hundreds of millions of people have lost the ability to think or behave like a normal human being.

Biocommunication: How Molds (Fungi) Are Magnetized to Low Vibrations (Sound Waves)

Biocommunication: How Molds (Fungi) Are Magnetized to Low Vibrations (Sound Waves)

We live in a world of sound.

Nature and life all around us are listening and secretly communicating via hidden networks.

A phenomenon called “bioacoustics and biocommunication.” Meaning, “the sound of life” or “the communication of life.”

The birds sing as they work hard pollinating the landscape producing fruit and seeds for the plants.

Humming to their own tune, bees carry on the great work of transporting pollen from one flower to the next.

Thus producing an alchemical celebration for the eyes with beautiful colorful flowers and a golden elixir we call honey that we can taste.

All the while, the plants, and trees are cognisant of the song of nature as they emit their sound waves secretly communicating through their roots via a vast global network of fungal mycelium.

Fungi, often hidden beneath the soil or nestled within decaying matter, form vast interconnected networks known as mycelium that grow long filaments, or ‘hyphae’, which interlink the root tips of different plants at a microscopic level.

The interlinking of fungal hyphae between different plant roots forms a symbiotic relationship known as mycorrhizae. Mycorrhizal fungi facilitate nutrient exchange between plants and enhance their resilience to environmental stressors.

The fruiting body is not just for the nourishment of the fungus itself but also the entire forest ecosystem, carrying electrical and chemical signals between plants. This allows different plant species that are compatible with the same species of mycorrhizal fungi to be connected via one common mycelium, coming together like the strings of a piano that strike a single harmonic chord.

By responding to sound waves, fungi may be able to optimize their mycorrhizal associations, enhancing nutrient uptake and improving plant growth and survival.

Hyphae make up a messy mass of branching, which gives rise to the vegetative mycelium. It is the mycelium that responds to sound waves.

The sound waves draw out the minuscule fungal tendrils like a snake charmer luring out snakes with music.

An interconnected bionetwork that appears to connect all living things together in its dark web that stretches deep into the earth’s abyss and 33,000 feet into space.

A universal fungal matrix that scientists are just learning to decode.

Recent studies have revealed that molds/fungi are magnetized (attracted) to low amplitude and low-frequency sound frequencies in the environment.

Scientists have made remarkable discoveries measuring the electrical responses of fungi (molds) to sound stimuli that have revealed that they demonstrate measurable electrical activity in response to different sound frequencies and patterns.

These findings suggest that fungi possess a form of sensory perception, enabling them to detect and respond to auditory cues. Moreover, they possess the remarkable ability to convert sound into electrical signals, much like our own auditory system, which may be a manifestation of the information received and then communicated between distant parts of the fungal colonies.

Researchers have also found that sound waves also have a profound impact on the biochemical processes within fungi, triggering the release of compounds like melatonin and indole, which are typically produced in times of stress and injury.

They have observed electrical spikes and oscillations in the fungi’s mycelium when exposed to music, vibrations, or even the sound of approaching predators.

It is hypothesized that sound might also serve as a means for fungi to communicate with each other, potentially facilitating resource sharing, warning signals, or even cooperative behavior.

By responding to sound, they may adapt their growth patterns, spore dispersal strategies, or interactions and defense mechanisms with other organisms.

These fascinating microorganisms, crucial to our ecosystems, can respond to sound waves in different ways, either by stimulating the growth of certain species or by inhibiting the growth of other competitors. This intriguing phenomenon can be attributed to the fungi’s ability to respond to sound waves in the environment that act to magnetize or repel through either a biochemical or transductive mechanism.

For example, sound waves can cause changes in air movement and humidity levels, which can in turn impact the growth and distribution of fungi. Some studies have suggested that certain frequencies of sound waves can enhance air circulation and increase evaporation rates, creating conditions that are less favorable for fungal growth.

Conversely, other studies have shown that sound waves can disrupt air currents and promote the spread of fungal spores, leading to increased colonization and infection rates.

The exact mechanisms responsible for fungi’s electrical responses to sound stimuli are still under investigation. Some theories suggest that vibrations caused by sound waves directly affect the ion channels in fungal cells, resulting in electrical activity. Other hypotheses propose that sound-induced electrical responses in fungi are linked to their role in communication, growth, or defense mechanisms.

The term “ion” finds its origin in the Greek language, specifically derived from the neuter present participle of “ienai” (Greek: ἰέναι), which translates to “to go.” In the realm of ions, a cation is associated with downward movement (Greek: κάτω pronounced kato, meaning “down”), while an anion is linked to upward movement (Greek: ano ἄνω, meaning “up”).

Chemicals in the body are “electrically-charged” — when they have an electrical charge, they are called ions. The important ions in the nervous system are sodium and potassium (both have 1 positive charge, +), calcium (has 2 positive charges, ++) and chloride (has a negative charge, -).

According to Science Daily;

“Elemental particles that transmit both heat and sound — known as acoustic phonons — also have magnetic properties and can, therefore, be controlled by magnets, even for materials thought to be ‘nonmagnetic,’ such as semiconductors. This discovery ‘adds a new dimension to our understanding of acoustic waves,’ according to a landmark study.

“This adds a new dimension to our understanding of acoustic waves,” said Joseph Heremans, Ph.D., Ohio Eminent Scholar in Nanotechnology and a professor of mechanical engineering at Ohio State whose group performed the experiments.

“We’ve shown that we can steer heat magnetically. With a strong enough magnetic field, we should be able to steer sound waves, too.”

People might be surprised enough to learn that heat and sound have anything to do with each other, much less that either can be controlled by magnets, Heremans acknowledged.

But both are expressions of the same form of energy, quantum mechanically speaking.

So any force that controls one should control the other.”

Researchers have found that high-intensity pulsed magnetic fields are widely used as a physical non-thermal sterilization technology in food processing, while weak magnetic fields are better at activating microorganisms and promoting their growth.

According to Science Direct, “the effect of magnetic fields on organisms, magnetic fields are classified into different intensity levels: weak (<1 T), strong (1–5 T) and ultra-strong (>5 T). Weak magnetic fields are better at activating microorganisms and promoting their growth [37][38][39]. Strong magnetic fields kill microorganisms.

The biological effects caused by low-frequency ultrasound include (1) changes in cell membrane permeability and increased cell growth rate; (2) changes in molecular conformation and intensification of reaction processes; and (3) activation of intracellular signal transduction systems and changes to the synthesis of metabolites within the organism.”

Low-frequency ultrasound has low energy consumption and reduced processing time and thermal effects, which can improve cell membrane permeability

Our cell membranes serve as our barriers and gatekeepers, but they are semi-permeable, which means that some molecules and organisms can diffuse across the lipid bilayer but others cannot.

This is where my whole theory of demonic fungi controlling the human brain rests…

In 2013, a Korean group examined the viability of employing frequency-specific sounds as an alternative to chemical fungicides for plant disease management. Their investigation unveiled that elevated frequencies possess the ability to impede the growth of mycelium, mirroring the effect of high-pitched noises causing deafness in humans.

Research has showed that high frequencies are capable of inhibiting growth of the mycelium, eerily similar to how high-pitched noises can deafen us.

This suggests that certain sound wave frequencies can induce stress in growth conditions.

On the other hand, low-frequency sounds seem to increase the productivity of certain fungi. For example, oyster mushrooms, known for their role in Asian cuisines, can be ‘sound treated’ and cultivated on sawdust, to increase their yield and rate of growth.

The study of sound wave-fungal interactions sheds light on the interconnectedness and complexity of the natural world.

The potential applications of sound wave manipulation in agriculture and horticulture are intriguing. By understanding the effects of sound waves on fungal growth, researchers and farmers could potentially harness these findings to optimize crop production and disease management.

For example, the use of specific frequencies of sound waves could be explored as a means of stimulating beneficial fungal symbiosis in plant roots, enhancing nutrient uptake and overall plant health. Conversely, sound wave technologies could be developed to disrupt the growth and spread of pathogenic fungi, reducing the need for chemical fungicides and promoting sustainable farming practices.

From plants subtly dancing to melodies to fungi exhibiting electrifying responses, the scientific exploration of these phenomena opens up new avenues for understanding and harnessing nature’s hidden secrets.

My ultimate theory is that fungi can also magnetize to animals and mammals, including humans via the same low frequencies to cause illness, disease, madness and death. A theory that I believe is being substantiated more and more.

When we live healthy and are on a higher vibration, we repel parasitical fungi.

As we delve deeper into this realm, it becomes clear that our world is intricately connected through the language of sound, inviting us to listen, explore, and embrace the symphony and even death metal that surrounds us in its web.

Third Plague of Egypt: Aaron struck the dust of the earth and fungus gnats came upon man and beast

Third Plague of Egypt: Aaron struck the dust of the earth and fungus gnats came upon man and beast

The Great Plagues of Ancient Egypt are described in the Bible as being derived from the dust of the earth via various flying pests such as locusts, flies, and gnats. This dust could be turned into gnats and create a plague that affects both man and beast via their skin which breaks out in boils.

In the Scripture, the Phoenician (Hebrew) lawgiver and Levite Priest, Moses, tells his Brother Aaron to use his staff to strike the dust, causing a swarm of these critters to cause the Third Plague of Gnats;
“Then the LORD said to Moses, “Tell Aaron, ‘Stretch out your staff and strike the dust of the earth, that it may turn into swarms of gnats throughout the land of Egypt. This they did, and when Aaron stretched out his hand with his staff and struck the dust of the earth, gnats came upon man and beast. All the dust of the earth turned into gnats throughout the land of Egypt.”

When the Pharoah’s black magicians tried to produce gnats by their secret arts, they could not. The gnats were on people and animals everywhere. The magicians then said to Pharaoh, “This is truly the finger of God.”

Our modern world and science remind me of the current COVID pandemic (plague) and my main subject of study relating to molds/fungi and how they cause illness, disease, and fungus gnats. These fungus gnats live, eat, breed, and die on various fungi and are pests that cause a whole host of problems for humankind such as attacking our plants, crops, and food creating root rot and stem rot, and they also like human blood causing various diseases.

These fungus gnats are a major problem in Egypt today as I assume they were in the time of Moses. We learn from the Father of History, Herodotus who tells us the Ancient Egyptians had a big problem with gnats and they had used their fishing nets to protect themselves when they had slept. Herodotus had said;

“Against the gnats, which are very numerous, the Egyptians use the following means: the inhabitants of Upper Egypt protect themselves by turrets, in which they sleep: for the gnats are unable to rise to any considerable elevation. Those who live near the marshes take a net, with which they fish by day, spread it over their beds by night, and sleep beneath it; the gnats, which sting through clothes or linen, do not even try to penetrate through the net.”

What Herodotus and other historians had called gnats, over time and today, we have various non-authoritarian and ignorant authors adding their invented names and descriptions to the chaos.

For example, here in California,  these biting gnats tend to attack humans outdoors in grassy or moist areas with sand, such as parks, ponds, golf courses, and the beach. Unfortunately, due to misinformation and various authors adding their own descriptions over the centuries, today, we ignorantly call them a whole host of different names such as black flies, bot flies, fruit flies, sand flies, sand gnats, shore flies, soldier flies, black kelp flies, buffalo flies, nuisance flies, no-see-ums, biting midges, punkies, and o’fives to name a few.

Here are some images of gnat bites causing sores and what we can call boils;

When we look to science, we are given a bunch of different Latin names further confusing the situation. Names like the ‘Sciaridae, which represents a large family of dark-winged fungus gnats. The different name changes these little gnats have gone through just in the past 50 years or so under the banner of science is staggering and disturbing.

As the University of Florida reports, “Sciaridae was formerly a subfamily in Mycetophilidae, and, for a short time, sciarids were called lycoriids (Lycoriidae). Many of the species formerly in genera Sciara and Neosciara are now in the genus Bradysia.

Kennedy (1974) reported on the significance of fungi in the survival and development of Bradysia impatiens, a fungus gnat found commonly in greenhouses of New York State. He reported that larvae of this species frequently feed on the root and stem tissue of many greenhouse plants. His experiments suggested that fungi provide an essential nutrient source for the larvae of B. impatiens, and that if fungi are in low supply in the immediate vicinity of a living plant, there is a tendency for the larvae to use the plant as an alternate food source.” (Kennedy MK. 1974. Survival and development of Bradysia impatiens (Diptera: Sciaridae) on fungal and nonfungal food sources. Annals of the Entomological Society of America 67: 745-749.)

There are currently, approximately 1700 species that have been described, but an estimated 20,000 species are awaiting discovery, mainly in the tropics. More than 600 species are known from Europe. Sciaridae larvae are mainly found in soil and sand, where they feed mainly on fungi, decaying matter, and animal feces.

Going back to ancient history, the Judeo-Egyptian Philo of Alexandria describes the gnat as an insect, although of very small size, yet of a most troublesome nature; for it hurts not only the surface, causing intolerable and protracted itching, but penetrates also into the interior through the ears and nose. It flies even into the eyes of those who do not guard themselves, and produces serious pain.”

Theodoret of Cyrus, a 5th-century Byzantine Church theologian of the School of Antioch, and biblical commentator said that when Sapores besieged Nisibis, his horses and elephants were so fearfully tormented by the stings of innumerable gnats, that they broke their yokes in wild fury, and madly ran about in all directions. They are, chiefly in seasons of a cool atmosphere, a perfect plague, rendering both eating and sleeping almost impossible.

Saint Augustine says the gnats breed in slime which is an ancient word for fungi. Hence, they are fungus gnats and were aggressive when man tried to drive them away. He had said, “ The gnats in Egypt breed in the slime; they are very small flies, but most lively and versatile, not allowing men to rest; if they are scared off, they return with the greater eagerness.”

The statement above by Philo is interesting. He says, “but penetrates also into the interior through the ears and nose and even the eyes.” Today, we know there are several types of black gnats, or what some ignorant people call black flies that can burrow into the skin and bodies of humans. For example, the condition called Onchocerciasis is an infectious disease caused by what science calls black flies but are also fungus gnats that are found mainly in Africa that can cause blindness and permanent skin damage.

Here is a description from the CDC who calls these fungus gnats black flies;

An article in Nature describes this disease;

“Approximately 17 million people are still infected with O. volvulus, predominantly in Africa. Infections are chronic and manifest clinically as debilitating skin disease and—in 1.2 million people—vision impairment or blindness. First-stage larvae, known as microfilariae (L1/mf), are produced by fertile female worms residing within onchocercomata (nodules). They migrate to the skin and other organs (for example, the anterior chamber of the eye), where they induce inflammatory reactions that are responsible for most Onchocerca-related pathology.

Onchocerciasis was identified by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a potential candidate for disease elimination through annual (or semiannual) mass drug administration (MDA) of ivermectin, an approach that has eliminated onchocerciasis from all but two countries in the Americas.”

A 2021 study shows us just how these infections take over the body with the larva moving through our blood and skin like it is their own personal highway and just how macabre these gnat infections are;

“At any given time, millions of microfilariae are moving through subcutaneous tissues and, to a lesser extent, the lymphatic system of an affected patient. During a subsequent blood meal, these L1 forms are ingested by a biting fly. They then transform over 1 to 3 weeks first by migrating from the gut into the thoracic flight muscles as an L2 larval stage. From here, they develop into an infective L3 larval stage and migrate into the salivary gland for subsequent transmission during the next blood meal. Once in the human body, the injected larvae transform into the L4 stage from where they mature in about one year.”

In regards to the Scripture and Third Plague, the 19th century German theologian and author, Ernst Wilhelm Hengstenberg connects the word “kinnim to gnats.” Hengstenberg had written;

“As respects the third plague, it is now generally agreed, that by day, kinnim, gnats are meant. These are, even in ordinary years, very troublesome in Egypt. Herodotus,’ as early as his time, speaks of the great trouble which the gnats cause, and of the precautions which are taken to guard against them. The passages in modern travellers are collected in Oedmann, according to the testimony of Maillet and Pococke, they often darken the air in Cairo,-in Hartmann, and last in Eichhorn.4 Hartmann comprises the results in the following words :

All travellers speak of these gnats as an ordinary plague of the country. In cool weather they are especially bold.

They pursue the men, prevent them from eating, disturb their sleep, and cause swellings which are sensibly painful. What Sonnini’ says of these gnats, in his account of his abode in Rosetta, is of peculiar interest; “It is asserted that the multitude of gnats, with which the streets and the inside of the houses were then filled, owe their origin to this employment (the drying of rice about the end of October.)

Indeed, there are fewer of them at other times. After the rice harvest, they go forth in multitudes from the overflowed fields in which the preceding generation laid their eggs. They come to trouble men, they make wounds, in order to suck their blood, not less burning than those of the Maringonins of South America.” (Egypt and the Books of Moses: Or the Books of Egypt By Ernst Wilhelm Hengstenberg)

As you can see, in the ancient past, we simply called them black gnats as many historians and philosophers had testified but today you will find them under a plethora of different names as I have described in this essay. The word kinnim that Hengstenberg mentions is the word found in the Bible to represent gnats and maggots which is also variously spelled as kennem, chinnim, kanem, etc. This word is also falsely said to represent lice, which history and my evidence proves is either wrong or simply a lie to misdirect people.

The Strong’s Concordance translates ken as gnats.

Today, Egypt is the largest producer of rice in the Near East region, as well it has the most productive rice farms worldwide with an average yield of 500.000 feddans, and is considered the second most important export crop after cotton. Rice is a summer crop that is grown from April to October and is limited to the north, east, and west parts of the Nile Delta and it is also the place where many people suffer from these fungus gnats due to it being the perfect breeding ground in the region for these little pests.
To give your more modern examples of these grants, here is a video of one member of this fungus gnat family called the Sciara Militaris, while still in larvae form. They seem to form as if one mind which I assume is part of the earth’s magnetic biosphere in which fungi plays a large role.

Here are some more examples just prove my fungus gnat point;

I just call them fungus gnats since they all are from the same family of flying pests that plague humankind.

I have seen these fungus gnats myself swarming around and in rotting sea kelp and have been attacked with my family. Yes, they have bitten my wife, kids, and myself and they leave marks like mini boils, and they hurt like heck! So we do our best not to go near the rotting kelp, and the first thing I do when I see this rotting kelp is to bury it in the sand.


This type of gnat is known as the Coelopa frigida is a species of seaweed fly or kelp fly. It is the most widely distributed species of seaweed fly. It can be found on most shorelines in the temperate Northern Hemisphere. C. frigida need a constant supply of algae to feed and lay their eggs. Thus, coastal beaches with stranded seaweed are their preferred environment.  The adults detect the scent of the seaweed and lie their eggs in the decaying algae. The seaweed’s particular environment allows the eggs to hatch, and the larvae begin to burrow into the seaweed.

The University of Massachusetts explains;

Fungus gnats and shore flies are attracted to damp locations where fungi are apt to flourish. Fungi are a major part of their diet. Studies have shown that fungus gnats develop more rapidly and have greater survival on fungal diets. In the absence of a fungal food source however, fungus gnats are capable of feeding on healthy plant tissue. Fungus gnats are general feeders and can injure a number of flower crops grown in the greenhouse. Adults are primarily a nuisance however, larvae feed on plant roots, fungi and decaying organic matter and tunnel into the crown and stems of plants. The feeding damage creates wounds that allow soilborne pathogens to enter and can kill plants.

The Scripture tells us of a sixth plague was more personal than the previous plagues. Soot was said be a black particulate matter formed as a by-product of wood combustion in the Egyptian kilns, but something tells me it is just black molds (fungi).

According to the biblical text, “then the LORD said to Moses and Aaron: ‘Take for yourselves handfuls of soot from a kiln, and let Moses throw it toward the sky in the sight of Pharaoh. It will become fine dust over all the land of Egypt, and will become boils breaking out with sores on man and beast through all the land of Egypt’. So they took soot from a kiln, and stood before Pharaoh; and Moses threw it toward the sky, and it became boils breaking out with sores on man and beast. The magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils that were on them and on all the Egyptians” (Exodus 9:8-11).

“Nine worlds I knew, the nine in the tree, With mighty roots, beneath the mold” – The Poetic Edda Vol. 1

In Ancient Norse cosmology, Yggdrasill was born from a seed – fyr mold neðan that grew into the living World Tree with a supernatural invisible root system that connects to the Axis Mundi or the world cosmos creating the Order of the World of which the Gods, heroes, men, and women are not only literally born from it, their fates and destinies are also entwined. We learn about Yggdrasill introduced by Vǫluspá (“Sibyl’s Prophecy”), through the Poetic Eddas which were written by an anonymous source in approximately the 11th-12th centuries.

Poems like Vǫluspá (“Sibyl’s Prophecy”) tell us the Norse cosmogonic history of nature, mold, the gods, men, and dwarfs, from the metaphysical birth of the world through a seed found in mold, which grew into the World Tree creating life, order, death, and ultimately, the world’s destruction. We are introduced to the Norse All-Father who is a divine magician and master of war, Odin and his sons Thor, the god of thunder, and Loki representing the forces of chaos and destruction. Other prominent characters include Balder (Baldr) and Frey (Freyr) and Freya (Freyja).

We are told, at the beginning of time, Yggdrasill had lain as a seed fyr mold neðan (Völuspá 2). The Tree has three roots, which shoot down in three directions (Grímnismál 31). Its middlemost root stands over Mimir’s well which is located “where Ginnungagap once was” (þar er forðum var Ginnungagap, Gylfaginning 15), that is to say, in the middle of the primeval space, with Niflheim on one side and the warm region on the other.

Within Yggdrasill are three special world wells or reservoirs containing special fluids called; Hvergelmir, the northerly; Mimir’s well, the middlemost; and Urd’s well, the southerly. The roots of the world tree extend up out of these waters. The most middle part, Mimir’s well contained special properties such as the most prized of the Gods – mead which contained a special creative force, wisdom, and ecstasy.

The Poetic Eddas tell us of the Nine Worlds and that the Holy Races of humanity come deep within Yggdrasill – “beneath the mold.”

These references to Yggdrasill ain as a seed fyr mold neðan with its roots “beneath the mold” and its most special substance of mead can help us identify the true meaning of the Norse concept of Yggdrasill. Something that has never been detailed by historians, scholars, and or researchers who seem to miss or gloss over the fact that “mold and decay” are the key factors that I believe can help us identify the Norse concept of Yggdrasill, which I have found is a latter more developed version of the Ancient Greek concepts of Tartarus.

I believe that as the Greek concept of Tartarus, the Norse Yggdrasill is a metaphysical World Tree that is what we would call today mold or fungus whose filaments and mycelium permeate all living beings and nature as they work in concert with the earth’s magnetic biosphere.

According to the story of Yggdrasill, it acts as a supernatural connection device or invisible roots system that is said to unite everything in the universe or multiple worlds of the Ásgard (the realm of the Aesir) within its various realms of gods, giants, and humans. The tree’s enormous branches connect the multiple worlds of the Ásgard (the realm of the Aesir) and the trunk of the tree represents the world-axis, which pierces through the center of Midgard (the human realm).

The identity of the Tree and Cosmos are attested to in the Poetic Eddas like the Völuspa.

Hearing I ask | from the holy races,
From Heimdall’s sons, | both high and low;
Thou wilt, Valfather, | that well I relate
Old tales I remember | of men long ago.

I remember yet | the giants of yore,
Who gave me bread | in the days gone by;
Nine worlds I knew, | the nine in the tree
With mighty roots | beneath the mold.

In Grímnismál, The Speech of Grimnir (“The Masked One” i.e. Odin), we learn Mead gives sacred knowledge and a character names Learad whose horns drip into the Boiling-cauldron [Tartarus], whence come all the rivers on earth and at its roots side is rotting, which the serpent feeds.

At its roots lies the source of Mìmir where Odin left one of his eyes as a pledge to drink the sacred mead of knowledge. The dragon Níðhöggr (Níðhǫggr, Nidhogg) is a dragon/serpent who gnaws at a root of Yggdrasil. Nidhögg dwells in the most northern parts of the underworld residing near Loki’s place of imprisonment and the river Slid whose eddies whirl with weapons. Nearby, is the Náströnds, “Corpse-shores” whose doors of the hall open north, onto a dark sea, “far from the sun”. Within the hall constructed of woven serpents, the worst sinners showered with venom as Nidhögg sucks the bodies of the náir (“Corpses”).

Heathrun is the name of the goat that stands on the hall of the Father of Hosts and bites at the boughs of Learad (a tree). Oakthorn is the name of the hart that stands on the hall of the Father of Hosts and bites at the boughs of Learad: his horns drip into the Boiling-cauldron [Tartarus], whence come all the rivers on earth. . . .

In the Eddas, Völuspá 19, the Norns are said to saturate the tree with ausinn hvíta auri, “water blended with white mud.” Gylfaginning tells us: “the Norns, who dwell by Urd’s well, take water from the well each day, and with it the mud that lies around the well, and pour it over the tree, so that its branches may not rot or decay. This water is so holy that all things which come into contact with it turn as white as the membrane called skjall that covers the inside of an eggshell.”

As Yggdrasil relates to the Ancient Greek Tartarus, Hesiod tells us it is the unfruitful sea (pontos) where there are shining gates and an immoveable threshold of bronze having unending roots, and it is grown of itself. And beyond, away from all the gods, live the Titans, beyond gloomy Khaos.” He says that the edge of the cosmos is where the flat disc of the earth meets the descending dome of the sky and the ascending walls of the pit of Tartaros. He said, “The sky-dome and Tartarean pit surround the cosmos in an egg-shaped shell with Tartaros descending as far beneath the earth as the sky rises up above it.”

Hesiod, Theogony, 116 ff.: ―Verily at the first Chaos came to be, but next wide-bosomed Earth, the ever-sure foundations of all the deathless ones who hold the peaks of snowy Olympus, and dim Tartarus in the depth of the wide-pathed Earth, and Eros, fairest among the deathless gods, who unnerves the limbs and overcomes the mind and wise counsels of all gods and all men within them.

From Chaos came forth Erebus and black Night; but of Night were born Aether and Day, whom she conceived and bare from union in love with Erebus. And Earth first bare starry Heaven, equal to herself, to cover her on every side, and to be an ever-sure abiding-place for the blessed gods.‖ [Translated by Hugh G. Evelyn-White, 1914.]

Lennin Was a Mushroom

Lennin Was a Mushroom

It was the last year of the existence of the USSR, 1991 when Lenin was a mushroom (Russian: Ленин — гриб), a highly influential TV show was broadcasted on the Leningrad Television show Pyatoe Koleso (The Fifth Wheel). It was produced by the Soviet musician Sergey Kuryokhin and reporter Sergey Sholokhov to show the alleged origins of the Bolshevik revolution.

The premise of their theory was that the revolution was led by people who had been consuming hallucinogenic mushrooms. In the process of consumption, these mushrooms altered people’s personalities, so that people [effectively] became mushrooms [themselves]. […]. Hence, their human personalities were replaced with mushroom personalities along with, Vladimir Lenin, their Bolshevik leader,  who they had said, was simply a mushroom and when he died, he turned into a mushroom.

In fact, Lenin had consumed so many mushrooms that their fungal “consciousness” had completely consumed him in return.

Kuryokhin tells the audience that after consuming a steady dose of psychedelic mushrooms over the course of several years, Lenin had at some point himself become a mushroom. A transformation that may have sparked the Bolshevik Revolution that brought him to power. According to the story, Kuryokhin had been traveling in Mexico when he came across some art mirroring the images from the October Revolution of 1917 which he theorized could not be a coincidence.

The common denominator? Mushrooms! 

Here are the videos – Part 1 and 2 along with my commentary below.

Part 2

Kuryokhin stated, “I have absolutely irrefutable proof that the October Revolution was carried out by people who had been consuming certain mushrooms for many years. And these mushrooms, in the process of being consumed by these people, had displaced their personalities. These people were turning into mushrooms. In other words, I simply want to say that Lenin was a mushroom.”

Kuryokhin also made references to mushrooms being not only made out of radio waves, “they are radio waves.” The person he says is “gradually turning into a mushroom and accordingly, into radio waves,” he says.

This concept is interesting because many critics say that most of the claims made in Lenin Was a Mushroom are false and absurd such as mushrooms are radio waves but the facts are they emit radio waves and even sound. Today, researchers are able to tap into the electromagnetic communication network of mushrooms using wires, radio waves, and circuits to find and listen to fungi. To do so, they have developed what is called the Mycophone which is a new technology used to extract sounds embedded in fungi —or compressed there, we might say in the language of MP3s.

Kuryokhin made further claims “the word” Lenin “is the opposite – this ninel, the famous French mushroom soup” – although there is no soup named as such and he gives an example of Lenin’s favorite composer – Beethoven, whose surname Kuryokhin translates as “bet – mushroom, hoven – spirit.”

Millions of Soviets did not know what to think and that was the whole point.  Were they witnessing a serious program or an elaborate prank by the Soviet Deep State New Magi?

After all, as you can see, Kuryokhin seems to mix truth with ludicrous theories.

In an account given by Sholokhov in a 2008 interview with the Russian women’s magazine Krestyanka, the day after the Lenin Was a Mushroom aired,  some Bolshevik veterans approached an official at the Leningrad Regional Party Committee demanding answers whether it was true that Lenin had been a mushroom. She replied that the story had to be false, “Because a mammal cannot be a plant.”

It is funny because fungi/molds are neither plant nor animal and they breathe oxygen just like humans…

The timing of the hoax played a large role in its success, coming as it did during the glasnost period when the ebbing of censorship in the Soviet Union led to many revelations about the country’s history, often presented in sensational form. Furthermore, Soviet television had, up to that point, been regarded by its audience as conservative in style and content. As a result, a large number of Soviet citizens (one estimate puts the number at 11.3 million audience members) took the deadpan “interview” at face value, in spite of the absurd claims presented.

Sholokhov has said that perhaps the most notable result of the show was an appeal by a group of party members to the Leningrad Regional Committee of the CPSU to clarify the veracity of Kuryokhin’s claim. According to Sholokhov, in response to the request one of the top regional functionaries stated that “Lenin could not have been a mushroom” because “a mammal cannot be a plant.” Modern taxonomy classifies mushrooms as fungi, a separate kingdom from plants.

“Until that year, it was 1991, it was very difficult to imagine that kind of hoax,” says Alexei Yurchak, an associate professor of socio-cultural and linguistic anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley.  Yurchak is the author of an essay about the event, A Parasite From Outer Space: How Sergei Kurekhin proved that Lenin was a mushroom. “The fact that he did it with Lenin made the hoax work. If he had used somebody else, it wouldn’t be feasible, but because it was Lenin, it was so hard to believe that this was a hoax.”
