much info here, and comparison of hydra cnidarians and porifera.
Great article on hydra sky. I strongly considered hydra as a potential suspect but never found evidence that it could reaggregate, according to this article it can. As I've stated before I'm pretty sure that the Cnidarians(Jellyfish, hydra, medusa) are involved. My current belief is that Porifera, Placozoa, Cnidaria, Ctenophora (comb jellies), and Bryozoa are much more closely related than science realizes. All of these animals express a high degree of polymorphism and their relationship with the rest of the animal world in not clear. This is evident when you consider Buddenbrockia plumatellae, a parasitic Myxozoan that is only found in the bryozoan yet it has the DNA of a Cnidarian. The Myxozoans are extremely destructive killing millions upon millions of fish and the jelly fish, as seen in an article I posted in my thread, are also killing machines and appear to be taking over the oceans, the dead zones in the oceans contain two living organisms, bacteria and jellyfish. I think I should research the mitochondrial genomes of Hydra. It is possible in my opinion that many of the Cnidarians could be creations of the sponge, particularly Hydra, which maybe why it possesses the ability to reaggregate. When I consider Hydra I can't help but wonder if Greek Mythology is actually mythology, maybe that stuff really happened.
Slime molds are simple, nongreen (saprophytic) plants that can live as individual single cells or can swarm together to function as a multicellular entity. In humans, they can live in the skin, inside the digestive tract, inside organs and inside malignant tumors. They cause human cell mutations.

How did Dr. Overman become aware of the parasitic potential of slime molds?
During the last several years Dr. Overman has been successful in shrinking hundreds of tumors of various kinds. However, there have been at least a dozen clients with tumors that he had not been successful shrinking.
In 2002 one of his clients, an eleven year old boy, was suffering from a very rapidly growing tumor on his leg which was visible on the outside. This tumor was making him deathly sick since it was making mold toxins and poisoning his liver. Dr. Overman was desperate to help this young client. None of his tumor shrinking herbal combinations would muscle test to help.
In fact, muscle testing would not even show the presence of the tumor even though it was in plain sight.
He was praying for wisdom when God reminded him that there is a class of living creatures called slime molds. He was not aware that slime molds parasitized humans. He then muscle tested the boy for slime mold species and found six of them.
Next, he muscle tested for slime mold tumors and found several. Note: When looking for tumors with slime mold in them by muscle testing, you must use the words “slime mold tumor”.
Slime mold tumors cannot be killed with radiation or chemotherapy. They cannot be surgically removed. They will grow out again right through the incision.
Slime molds are often classified as fungi, although now most specialists consider them a group of protistans. They are not closely related to other groups of plants or animals. Slime molds, which spend part of their life as single-celled forms, can aggregate to form multicellular forms. They thus may represent a transition between unicellular and multicelluar forms, the second major advancement after the evolution of eukaryotic cells.

Brown algae are multicellular, have the accessory pigment fucoxanthin (a brown pigment), and include the giant kelp that can be over 100 meters long. Brown algae are used in foods, animal feeds, and fertilizers and as a source for alginate, a chemical emulsifier added to ice cream, salad dressing, and candy.
Fucus is a brown alga differentiated into a floating "blade", flotation bladder, stalk (or stipe) and basal holdfast. Sargassum, common in the Sargasso Sea region of the Atlantic Ocean, floats and maintains position by a flotation bladder filled with gas.
Oomycete Molecular Genetics Research Collaboration Network
Because of their economic impact as plant pathogens, molecular, genetic and genomics studies are well advanced in Phytophthora species. These organisms have served as lead species for the entire Stramenopiles lineage, a major radiation of crown eukaryotes, distinct from plants, animals and fungi. The Phytophthora molecular genetics community has developed with a strong culture of collaboration and communication, and sharing of techniques and resources. With the recent blossoming of genetic and genomic tools for Phytophthora, many new investigators, from a variety of backgrounds, have become interested in Phytophthora molecular genetics. The goals of the Phytophthora Molecular Genetics Research Collaboration Network is to facilitate the integration of these investigators into the community and to further strengthen the cooperative culture of this community. A particular emphasis is placed on training and integrating junior faculty and faculty from institutions under-represented in the U.S. research infrastructure. The network's activities have been supported by a $497,467 grant (5/1/02 - 4/30/07 ) from the NSF Research Collaboration Networks in Biology program.
The proposed network is open to all researchers with an interest in Phytophthora molecular genetics, either at an experimental or a computational level. Investigators new to the field are especially welcome. Please contact Brett Tyler with a brief description of your research interests if you wish to become a member of the network.

Oomycetes also known as Water molds (or water moulds: see spelling differences) are a group of filamentous, unicellular Heterokonts, physically resembling fungi. They are microscopic, absorptive organisms that reproduce both sexually and asexually and are composed of mycelia, or a tube-like vegetative body (all of an organism's mycelia are called its thallus). The name "water mold" refers to their earlier classification as fungi, which stemmed from their preference for conditions of high humidity and running surface water, although they are now known to have evolved separately and show a number of differences. For instance, their cell walls are composed of cellulose rather than chitin and generally do not have septations. Also, in the vegetative state they have diploid nuclei, whereas fungi have haploid nuclei.
Instead, water molds are related to organisms such as brown algae and diatoms, making up a group called the heterokonts. The name comes from the common arrangement and structure of motile cells, which typically have two unequal flagella. Among the water molds, these are produced as asexual spores called zoospores, which capitalize on surface water (including precipitation on plant surfaces) for movement. They also produce sexual spores, called oospores, that are translucent double-walled spherical structures used to survive adverse environmental conditions. A few produce aerial asexual spores that are distributed by wind.
The water molds are economically and scientifically important because they are aggressive plant pathogens (see plant pathology). Some species can cause disease in fish. The majority can be broken down into three groups, although more exist.
The Phytophthora group is a genus that causes diseases such as dieback, late blight in potatoes (the cause of the Great Hunger or Potato Famine of the 1840s in Ireland), sudden oak death, rhododendron root rot, and Ink Disease in the American Chestnut.
The Pythium group is even more prevalent than Phytophythora and individual species have larger host ranges, usually causing less damage. Pythium damping off is a very common problem in greenhouses where the organism kills newly emerged seedlings.
Mycoparasitic members of this group (e.g. P. oligandrum) parasitize other oomycetes and fungi, and have been employed as biocontrol agents. One Pythium species, Pythium insidiosum is also known to infect mammals.
The third group are the downy mildews, which are easily identifiable by the appearance of white "mildew" on leaf surfaces (although this group can be confused with the unrelated powdery mildews)

Classification of Oomycetes
Traditionally, this group was thought to include types of fungi, and indeed fungi themselves were once believed to be closely related to plants. However, further research has concluded that this is not true and that fungi are more closely related to animals. Many species of Oomycetes are still described or listed as types of fungi and may sometimes be referred to as pseudofungi, or lower fungi. Oomycetes are actually members of the chromistans, which are in turn part of the larger Kingdom Protoctista.

Quasamoto: I DO NOT KNOW SAYS ONE OF US, WHY DON'T YOU ASK HIM, SO TURBANWIS CLIBS UP OUT OF THE HOLE AND ASKS, WHY ARE WE IN THE MUD HOLE AND YOUR OUT HERE, THE BIG BOSS TELLS TURBAN TO PICK UP A SHOVEL, THE BOSS PUTS HIS HAND ON THE TREE AND SAYS HIT MY HAND!!
Jul 22, 2014 18:21:31 GMT -5
Quasamoto: wELL TURBAN IS PLEASED TO BASH THE BIG BOSS HAND, SO HE HAULS OFF AND LETS HIM HAVE IT, WELL JUST BEFORE THE SHOVEL HITS BIG BOSS HAND HE PULLS HIS HAND AWAY FROM THE TREE AND TURBANS SHOVEL HITS THE TREE HURTING THE HECK OUT OF HIS OWN HANDS.
Jul 22, 2014 18:24:23 GMT -5

SANENoBugonme, : The problem with these people, they have said bugs are their problems for so long, that they can not admit the fact that the itching is not caused by inset or bug infestation, there are parasites that can not be seen without a electron microscope,
Jul 24, 2014 14:26:27 GMT -5
SANENoBugonme, : These are PRIONS and Virus, look up the word parasite, you will see it does not have to be a insect, http://www.sciences360.com/index.php/the-smallest-parasites-in-the-world-7149/
Jul 24, 2014 14:27:47 GMT -5
SANENoBugonme, : copy and paste the url into your search box. I am more inclined to imagine this may be connected to PRION disease as they have found this issue in people with Alzheimers, if you do some searching you will find a link, still the jury is out, who knows.
Jul 24, 2014 14:33:36 GMT -5
SaneNobugonme: Here is a little wake up call, WHY DO ALZHEIMER victims scratch themselves BLOODY. http://www.alzcompend.info/?p=233 or do the search yourself, itching Alzheimer's this disease is more than people imagine.
Jul 24, 2014 18:23:04 GMT -5
SaneNobugonme: Remember this, why are people that are insane called BUGGY, why are insane institutions called THE BUG HOUSE, do you imagine that's all that insane people can imagine is bugs, REALLY, I am ashamed of your ability to deduce.
Jul 24, 2014 19:08:59 GMT -5
SaneNobugonme: Their minds are gone because of disease, they scratch because they have the itching disease, duh!!
