been formerly known as their "diseases".
The doctor discovers that diseases are electromagnetic shadows of
people that use viral, fungal and bacterial communities as
They mirror human defense systems to gain access to bodies, and
cause pain and death only when they are resisted. The doctor
discovers, on LSD, how to have a consciousness powwow with the
