I had these too and still do. Initially, I had hundreds, probably millions, of these under he skin in my fingers and under my nails, they develop and grow. they can be removed bu are painful to remove and removing them does not sop hem from growing. I beleive hey are some type of initial stage of parasite associated with morg syndrom.

If medical professionals will not help me, I'll help myself. I hope that other Morg sufferers will find out the truth and not buy into taking psych meds for a biological infection.
I am getting them to and also tons of that waxy crystalization stuff, and also specks of brown and black gunk. My head is (scalp) is producing tons of sticky waxy stuff and all manner of fiber bundles/cocoons. Really disgusting. I had one last night come off of my head w/extemely fine brown fibers all intermeshed together and really moving. So disgusting -reminded me of abunle of fuzzy dirty strings and tiny bugs legs that move in unison. I am so tired of this stuff. Feeling down today but tryong to turn it around
Toni, have you ever seen any evidence of Dictyostelium? When I studied Jan Smith's specimens of dicty, the life cycle I could see had these shapes, and a whole lot of them together. We thought they might be something synthetic like gene expression in polymer.

Several years back, there was a time I too thought Dicty D. were involved - many of us did, and maybe still do.
(but, imho) I don't think that anymore, from what I've seen.
I totally understand though, "about how it takes on shapes, and the movements"....but from what I've seen with all my specimens, I just have had a change of thoughts in regards to the D.D.
Yes, the article there in your second link, I'll copy here:
The effects of extracellular calcium on motility, pseudopod and uropod formation, chemotaxis, and the cortical localization of myosin II in Dictyostelium discoideum. Lusche DF, Wessels D, Soll DR.
Department of Biology, The W.M. Keck Dynamic Image Analysis Facility, University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa 52242, USA. firstname.lastname@example.org
Abstract Extracellular Ca(++), a ubiquitous cation in the soluble environment of cells both free living and within the human body, regulates most aspects of amoeboid cell motility, including shape, uropod formation, pseudopod formation, velocity, and turning in Dictyostelium discoideum. Hence it affects the efficiency of both basic motile behavior and chemotaxis. Extracellular Ca(++) is optimal at 10 mM. A gradient of the chemoattractant cAMP generated in the absence of added Ca(++) only affects turning, but in combination with extracellular Ca(++), enhances the effects of extracellular Ca(++). Potassium, at 40 mM, can partially substitute for Ca(++). Mg(++), Mn(++), Zn(++), and Na(+) cannot. Extracellular Ca(++), or K(+), also induce the cortical localization of myosin II in a polar fashion. The effects of Ca(++), K(+) or a cAMP gradient do not appear to be similarly mediated by an increase in the general pool of free cytosolic Ca(++). These results suggest a model, in which each agent functioning through different signaling systems, converge to affect the cortical localization of myosin II, which in turn effects the behavioral changes leading to efficient cell motility and chemotaxis.

Imho, this article is just explaining the extracellular (outside the cell impression) of calcium effects on the movements of the myosin, and or the effects that may lead to changes in the cells motility.
Dicty D "does" have this "going on" as that's what makes these species so interesting and easy to study.
But...the human body also possesses "amoeboid movements" in the leukocytes too.
Now whether the two have anything to do with each other, is a who knows thing. You know what I mean?
The human leukocytes movements "sort of act/behave the same as the cells in the Dicty D.".
It's the chemotaxis of our white blood cells, just like how our body will usually push out a spinter in the skin, "that amoeboid action" is natural.
I think "imho" the Dicty are just a good way for this movement and formation of cells to be studied.
I found a really good article explaining this "action" that we have in our body also, which is why awhile back I too thought Dicty D.
But...when I learned our cells have this same locomotion as the Dicty D., I then "changed my thoughts" on the Dicty being any culprits within my infection, and imho, the Dicty are just "an easy way for scientists to study this movement of cells" - but..not involved in my Morgs. I believe, "my cells are doing the "amoeboid *action" which is a normal process, but they're doing it because the of "abnormal" infection/contamination my system has.
Imho...it's also a reason why our white cell count is elevated too - because the body is so overloaded with something that shouldn't be there.
Same subject, but...I've got a twist too to this also, in that it's the same thing occuring, but...something else also is taking place (possibly) that's very interesting that others have talked about too
I'll get the pictures from off the internet, and mine too, and be back, because this really is interesting, and who knows, maybe something to consider. I don't know, but.. maybe. It is something I'm leaning towards that's happening.
We are identifying the plug-like forms in Morgellons. Characterization: Plug-like forms with a "foot" are in the skin and hurt when you pull them out of the skin (at the surface).
1. We know they are found in Dicty and are called uropods. What size are the d.D uropods?
2. We know they are found in lymphocytes.They are also found in macrophages. They are used to establish contact, used to adhere to macrophages forming clusters.
Microspikes on the lymphocyte uropod. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/5764475 "Lymphocytes have anatomic and functional characteristics reiminiscent of the amoeba. The capacity to form microscopikes on the uropod suggests a high degree of specialization essential to the lymphocyte's function in immunnologic reactions."
3. Are the forms found in any other body structures or animal life cycles other than d.Dicty?
"Lymphocyte locomotion was described vividly by Lewis, who observed that the cell first extends a pseudopod separated from the rest of the cell by a groove that encircles the cell body. Eventually, as the groove deepens, the nucleus is pushed forward through the constriction ring, giving rise to the classic shape of the motile lymphocyte, resembling a hand mirror or pear. The advancing front is occupied by the nucleus, which is separated by a deep constriction from the rest of the cytoplasm that trails behind, forming the handle of the mirror. The cytoplasmic tail is called the uropod (from Greek ura, "tail," "foot"). It is studded with microvilli and microspikes, which vary in width from 12.5 to 2009 nm and to as much as 0.8 um in length. The motile lymphocyte moves with an average speed of 20 um/minute. In general, motility increases with the state of cell activation as lymphoblasts demonstrate greater locomotion than small lymphocytes. It could therefor be stated that locomotion is enhanced by stimuli inducing blast transformation. The uropod not only is associated with locomotion, but also serves as a site for a variety of interactions with lymphocytes, macrophages, and other cells.
"In mixed lymphocyte cultures, lymphocytes may approach macrophages and then turn around to establish contacts with them through their uropods. The locomotion of lymphocytes around macrophages has been called peripolesis to distinguish it from emperipolesis ("inside roundabout wandering"), which describes the penetration of malignant cells by lymphocytes. T lymphocytes also adhere to macrophages by means of uropods, forming clusters or rosettes. A stable cluster forms only when macrophages and lymphocytes are exposed to antigen. The T lymphocytes within clusters are stimulated into proliferative activity. In general, uropod formation is a morphologic expression of lymphocyte activation as measured by DNA synthesis.
"The locomotion of lymphocytes is strikingly different from that of other cells. Lymphocytes move forward in a steady manner, maintaining the hand-mirror shape, whereas myeloblasts express a wriggling wormlike locomotion, and the cells of the monocytic series change shape and direction continuously.
"Although it was suggested that uropod formation is a characteristic of T lymphocytes, B lymphocytes also form uropods after stimulation with anti-immunoglobulin antibodies. In this case, the uropod forms after capping of the surface immunoglobulin (ig) is completed; the cap ultimately is found over the utopod, where it is endocytosed. The uropod also has been known to serve as a site for endocytosis of foreign substances. Ultrastructurally, the uropod contains practically all of the cytoplasmic organelles, including the Golgi apparatus, mitochondria, microfilaments and microtubules."
"The formation and structure of uropods  was examined by transmission and scanning electron microscopy of human blood lymphocytes cultured in vitro in the presence of phytohaemagglutinin (PHA). Within 5 h of stimulation approx. 10 % of the cells displayed the typical polarized (“hand-mirror”) configuration consistent with the formation of an uropod. After 2 days' stimulation, approx. 20% of the cells had uropods, compared with approx. 5% in non-stimulated cultures. The fine structure of the typical uropod was characterized by the presence of the Golgi-centrosomal structures, lysosomes, cytoplasmic fibrils and varying amounts of mitochondria and ER cisternae. The surface of the uropod was characterized by the presence of endocytic vesicles, microvilli and vesiculated buds. The uropods showed a marked endocytic activity as revealed by the uptake of ferritin added to the culture medium. Vesicular material, some of which had acid phosphatase activity, was usually adsorbed to the surface of the uropods. The possibility that some of the adsorbed vesicular material may be derived from intact lymphocytes by an excretory mechanism or by “clasmatosis” is pointed out. The uropods showed a marked ability to become attached to other cells and to the surface of Petri dishes. It is suggested that uropod formation may have important functional implications in inductive and cytotoxic cellular interrelations of lymphocytes in vitro."
QUESTION: Does the human (blood) uropod size fit the size of the specimen from a Morgellons' patient?

It looks like the same gel again. Whatever this gel is, it oozes out of the body from every pore it seems. And takes many shapes - but it is always the same color so fairly easy to identify. Both reddish, pinkish, and clear translucent parts to it. The clear translucent part reaches down like a root, and transmits light. This gel takes on forms that look like insects so people believe at first that they have bugs - I guess that IS DOP because in fact one has Morgellons and not bugs. I have not seen one real insect since May 2010 since I've been looking at this sh*t under the microscope.
I'm not sure of the size of the uprods in the Dicty -as you've written in your post above. I believe 'extremely small' but that doesn't say much.
There's two things I'm actually wondering about "what these could be" and I'm sorry I'm not leaning towards the Dicty anymore (as I was in 06)...but that was then.
I believe, either these are infected follicles as Sidney has pointed out to me as a "possibility".
I'm correcting this here: as I think there's sort of a look of a hair follicle here too, but I don't know, and Sid feels this is an infected sebaceous gland.
I don't know though, as there's no way for me to.
They look like follicles imho too, but they also look like something else to me too.
Now...if I go on the follicle "infected track", it could make total sense, as particular bacteriums form what's called "metachromatic granules" and there's so much to read about that and volutin ...and I've just not gotten that far, but, as an example:
"in the infection Corynebacterium"- this can cause that "event" to take place.
And then we can go off the charts in another direction too, imho.
Not that I think with genetic engineering that something isn't a possibility, because it is. Gene's mutating with other genes.
DNA and horizontal transfer.....the sky is the limit as far as I'm concerned at this point. And with the use of Agro, and all the potential and possibilities that Agro has the capacity to do, and with all the major oddities that are occuring, I'm not too hesitant to close off anything really in 'what this might be'.
And I'll mention it (the off the charts thing) that I do see a great similarity to also with these "specimens".
That is look at "somatic embryogenesis". You'll see, the pictures look like our stuff too.
So, I'm sort of in a "I dunno what to think" place, but open.
I've got lots of pictures of those things, (from the internet) and just comparing pictures with somatic embryo's of plants ...it's scary too.
Just an interesting paragraph, for everything to be seen, or as much as we can find on all "issues" or subjects, as we sure can't learn enough, since we're in this predicament.

ChasSansc2: I did, and I saw, and I was in shock. From that point on I added 1 cup of LEMON JUICE to every load of laundry I did. After doing this, I noticed that my clothes actually felt lighter before putting them in the dryer.
May 18, 2019 21:52:07 GMT -5
ChasSansc2: What does this all mean? I would suggest that anyone who has Morgellon to add 1 cup of LEMON JUICE to every load of laundry they do, start drinking lemon water and maybe even start taking baths with at least 2 cups of LEMON JUICE in it.
May 18, 2019 21:54:45 GMT -5
ChasSansc2: I used straight LEMON JUICE on my body, as well as Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar. A word of caution, LEMON JUICE on the face can feel like Mace (it burns), so, you may want to dilute it before applying the LEMON JUICE soaked wash cloth.
