I just saw a Report on The News Hour [PBS] that said the SARS
'epicenter' is Hong Kong/ An interviewee stated that Hong Kong is
working hard to establish economic recovery.

Maybe(?) they're looking to genetic-engineering as a wellspring for
this 'economic-recovery'?

If I were in charge of the SARS-onset investigation, I'd look, in the
way outlined in the preceding post, first in Hong Kong, and do so

The Chinese Leadership should take the initiative in this matter
which is of concern to all of Humanity.

What's the pay-off?

If a correlation to some genetic-engineering effort can be
established, the engineering approach will hold clues with respect to
SARS and ways in which it can be defeated.

The other =IMPORTANT= thing is that I'm =just= stating an hypothesis.

=DO NOT= allow such to become gist for 'rumor mills'.

Test the hypothesis =Responsibly= [so as not to fan the 'flames']
before calling anything "fact".

| virus that's been deemed responsible for SARS, and
| genetically-engineered stuff, including foodstuffs.
| I've discussed, in long-former posts, the underpinning rationale

| modified 3-D energy-gradients into the evolutionary mix can,
| potentially, alter evolutions relationship with WDB2T in
| unanticipated ways.
| There has to be an explanation for the appearances of both HIV and
| SARS. Maybe that 'explanation' is just that the molecular
| that enables the recognition that 'new viruses' have, in fact,
| up were not formerly available, and that it's not actually anything
| 'new'.
| But that position does not explain the deadliness of HIV and SARS,
| which is easily recognized, and which, if this sort of thing 'has
| been happening all along, but gone unrecognized', such still
| explain the easily-observed 'new' deadliness of these 'new
| So thoroughness with respect to such deadly stuff requires the
| establishment of Histories that cross-correlate the 'new viruses'
| genetically-engineered stuff, looking for 'coincidences'.
| The larger rationale is as I've discussed in long-former msgs -
| evolutionary dynamics occur over eons during which everything is
| Tested, flushed-clean, etc., before it can go forward
| But genetic-engineered stuff is inherently 'free' of such eons-long
| Testing.
| The hypothesis that has to be explored is, "Are there any 'time'
| coincidences between the arrivals of these 'new viruses' and the
| loosing of bio-engineered stuff within the environments in which
| 'new viruses' arise?"
| It's just common sense to leave no stones unturned when matters
| deadly.
| The thought is that it might be that a bio-engineered thing can
| a non-evolutionarily-compatible 3-D energy-gradient within
| eons-tested, Life, and that such triggers accelerated viral
| I see nothing, in principle, that 'outlaws' this possibility.
| [The same thing can, of course, result from relatively-new
| chemofactors, or even through the augmenting degree of
| inter-genetic-pool mixing that derives in 'globalization'. All such
| factors need to be examined in detailed ways. This sort of thing
| be implemented for the long term via computerized methods which, as
| the data builds will, itself, become a Standardized way of doing
| Biology in which questions of evolutionary relavance gradually
| increasingly refined, analyzed, and reified.]
| It's unacceptable to just say, "Of course, our fiddling with the
| stuff of evolution's eons of testing is safe."
| The question is, "of course", entirely open.
