If you are not familiar with Morgellan's, it is a disease where lesions appear on the skin, and then weird fibers begin to grow out of the lesions. Some in the medical community seem to think it's a hoax or a self-induced condition due to scratching and such, and that the fibers are just textiles, but spectral analysis by a doctor who is a "believer" rules out both textiles and "organic" (carbon based) compounds. Any ideas? I vote for either cancers or unknown viruses (capable of reprogramming cell functions). I think bacteria is a possibility, but it doesn't seem likely because it should have been discovered by now.
