Omicron (OMC!) - 2

The latest model T4
I. Background

In the previous post we looked for Omicron genes in Coronaviridae viruses, excluding the SARS-CoV-2 virus (Omicron (OMC!)).

In today's post we are going to focus only on the SARS-CoV-2 viruses, comparing the more recently collected sample to an original sample, which is the first SARS-CoV-2 collected in a particular country).

The comparison range is not limited to genes, the entire set of nucleotides is considered as was done in On The Origin Of The Home Of COVID-19 - 27.

II. Details

The purpose of the comparisons, today, is to detect changes in the SARS-CoV-2 virus over a relatively short span of time, using the data from various countries (today's appendices are alphabetized by country in Section IV below).

Some countries have few collected samples, others have enormous quantities of samples, so, the comparison involves the first, middle, and last virus sample collected in each country.

III. Change

The information at the beginning of each appendix explains that the comparisons concern equal, greater than, and less than results.

That is, each nucleotide and/or gene location or length value is either the same, greater than, or smaller than the first sample of the SARS-CoV-2 taken in that country.

For example, Serbia had no change over its span of time:

SerbiaMW315975.1 orig 2020-03-12

MW327520.1 comp 2020-06-24 ======================================

MW548723.1 comp 2020-12-11 ======================================

(Appendix SZ). Other countries had a lot of change:


MZ056416.1 comp 2021-04-12 >=>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>===


(ibid). The point I am making is that this post considers the issue of change.

An excellent place to ponder the realm of virus changes is the Virology Blog, where the question "are viruses living" is addressed:

"Viruses are not living things. Viruses are complicated assemblies of molecules, including proteins, nucleic acids, lipids, and carbohydrates, but on their own they can do nothing until they enter a living cell. Without cells, viruses would not be able to multiply. Therefore, viruses are not living things."

(Are Viruses Living?, emphasis added). Viruses, then, are abiotic rather than being biotic (see e.g. The New Paradigm: The Physical Universe Is Mostly Machine, 2, 3; A Microbe's Machine Kills Intruders).

So, since we are contemplating change, and microbes are required for a virus to be changed, why not ask and consider the notion: "why do microbes change or not change viruses?"

Viruses on their own "can do nothing" change is not something they do, change is something that is done to them.

IV. Closing Comments

So, I urge you to peruse the appendices (AC, DI, JM, NR, and SZ) and ask yourself why are single-celled microbes making such haphazard changes to these viruses?

And perhaps, add to your perusal as I have done, the question: "are the changes the result of damage done to the single-celled hosts of the SARS-CoV-2 viruses?"
