Now that I have lost a source of data, I have time for my mind to wander—and wander it does. What I interpreted from that data is that Industry does not want you to know things. I believe we are being turned into worker “bees”—a process that happens slowly. In the United States, this has been going on full-steam since the 1970s—back when my kids were born.
Evolution has provided us with friendlies others now call foes. They are inappropriately called viruses. [A virus is not usually known as a friend.]
I engaged in an email conversation with a biogenomic scientist. We passed a few emails back and forth until I posed this:
“I was perusing your efforts with genomic databases. Impressive. They were still unable to map the human genome when I was young. The double helix had been discovered a bit earlier. I remember watching PBS programming and became enthralled. It did not make me very popular—being a kid-nerd.
There are questions I wish to ask, but find myself treading lightly. I’m wondering if there could not be noticeable differences in the general population’s genome post-‘70s? “
I received no response to my query.
Now bear with me and read the uncomplicated-version definition.
Noun: vi·rus | \ ˈvī-rəs \plural viruses
Definition of virus
1a: any of a large group of submicroscopic infectious agents that are usually regarded as nonliving extremely complex molecules, that typically contain a protein coat surrounding an RNA or DNA core of genetic material but no semipermeable membrane, that are capable of growth and multiplication only in living cells, and that cause various important diseases in humans, animals, and plantsalso: FILTERABLE VIRUS b: a disease or illness caused by a virus c: the causative agent of an infectious disease 2: something that poisons the mind or soulthe force of this virus of prejudice— V. S. Waters 3: a computer program that is usually disguised as an innocuous program or file, that often produces copies of itself and inserts them into other programs, and that when run usually performs a malicious action (such as destroying data or damaging software) 4archaic : VENOM sense 1

History and Etymology for virus
Middle English, “pus, discharge from a sore, semen,” borrowed from Latin vīrus (neuter) “venom, poisonous fluid, acrid element in a substance, secretion with medical or magical properties,” going back to an Indo-European base *u̯is-/*u̯īs- “poison, venom,” whence also Middle Irish fí “venom, poison, evil,” Greek īós “poison,” Tocharian A wäs and Tocharian B wase, Sanskrit viṣáṃ, Avestan viš, viša- (also vīš?); (sense 1) borrowed from German, borrowed from Latin
NOTE: The application of Latin vīrus to the submicroscopic infectious agents now considered viruses (rather than to any infectious agent) was apparently first made by the Dutch microbiologist Martinus Beijerinck (1851-1931) in “Ueber ein Contagium vivum fluidum als Ursache der Fleckenkrankheit der Tabaksblätter,” Verhandelingen der Koninklijke Akademie van Wetenschappen te Amsterdam, Tweede Sectie, Deel VI, no. 5 (1898). Beijerinck, in studying tobacco mosaic virus, mistakenly believed that the agent was a fluid (contagium vivum fluidum, “living fluid infection”) because it passed through filters capable of trapping bacteria. — The neuter gender of vīrus suggests that it was originally an s-stem; forms in text other than the nominative and accusative are perhaps found only in Lucretius. The length of the vowel in Latin, Irish, and Greek, in contrast to the short vowel in Tocharian and Indo-Iranian, has been variously accounted for. M. Mayrhofer (Etymologisches Wörterbuch des Altindoarischen) suggests that the etymon was originally a root noun, *u̯īs, *u̯is-ó-, with lengthening of the monosyllabic vowel; the daughter languages then generalized one or the other form.
We are mentally whacked at every turn with media blitzing, telling us the very things that made us strong are harmful. This is but a ploy to frighten us into compliance, and it works. Yes—some of us die from these things, but decisions as to how evolution solves problems are best left up to her.
Study Finds Surprising Benefit of Viral DNA: Fighting Other Viruses
Do you speak virus? Phages caught sending chemical messages.
Let’s go back to one definition of virus here:
“a computer program that is usually disguised as an innocuous program or file, that often produces copies of itself and inserts them into other programs, and that when run usually performs a malicious action (such as destroying data or damaging software)”
So, yes, I believe many of us are being genetically programmed.
And who believes he knows everything about programming?
[Some background on me:
I’ve always been [disconcertively so] somewhat of a real space shot. In second grade, I excitedly gave a class presentation on African Sleeping Sickness and bored my classmates all to hell.
But there was one word affiliated with the transmission of the disease that made my teacher wince every time I said it. If it had been just once, I might not have noticed, but as Miss Milkman continually squirmed in her seat, my 7-year-old mind resolved to discover why. I was unhappy with myself for missing that damned word.
Off to Grammy’s house to peruse her Britannica I went, and pulled out the appropriate book. I hadn’t even finished before I shook my head to clear it, slammed it shut, and went out to play in the garden. I put the whole idea away for years; it was more than my young mind wanted to know. The word was ‘coitus.’
By the age of thirteen, I was gearing up to become a genetic researcher.
By the age of 23, I was offered a free pass to Medical school which I subsequently declined. There was something terribly wrong with my toddler, which [it seemed] nobody could figure out. I felt [at the time] I was his best shot for a life, so I put my life aside. Both my sons are vaccine-injured as am I.]
