An abstract trend of evolution is only understood well, if one comes to understand its necessity, meaning to be able to predict the trend in hindsight. As such, the properties of fungi are predicted in this paper. Beside animals and plants, fungi are the third branch of multicellular eukaryotic life forms. Having neither mouth, nor chlorophyll, they are usually saprofytic in the soil. However, they can establish themselves parasitically in animals and plants.
Next to that, they are more succesful parasites than bacteria:
- Because they generate 18 times more energy, as they have mitochondria that generate 18 times more ATP molecules from one sugar molecule than bacteria do.
- Because they evolve much faster than bacteria, as they can reproduce sexually.
- Because they can pull back food, cytoplasm and DNA out of threatened areas, as they are multicellular.
- Because they have the ability to be unicellular, i.e. a fungus’s cells can separate themselves, only to regroup afterward.
Evolutionary speed does not depend on sexual reproduction only, but also on the size of a population of cells and their lifespan; the number of good mutations is proportional to the size of the population of cells and the speed of selection is inversely proportional to their lifespan. A unicellular organism’s lifespan, e.g. an hour, fits 24*365*30=262,800 times into ours. This means their speed of selection is 262,800 times the rate of ours. At a diameter of 4µm per fungal cell with a total volume of 4mm³, its population shall have exceeded 1 billion already. A little more fungus shall yield a population the size of mankind. The single multicellular fungus individual evolves in our bodies just as mankind as a whole does, but it does that 262,800 times our rate. It does that at a bigger rate than any other life form known to mankind. N.B. unicellular eukaryotes have a similar speed of selection, but have no sizable, coherent population.
In conclusion to the preceding, fungi are undoubtedly the perfect parasites. They have the following features:
- Bacteria can live solitarily in the blood stream. Fungus cannot live in the blood stream, because it needs to live within a coherent network. Therefore, fungus lives outside of the blood stream. It lives in unstructured connective tissue, so it does not live in structured tissue, such as muscles and nerves.
- In the blood stream, bacteria are fully visible to the immune system. It defends the body by reacting with fever. Living outside of the blood stream, fungus is hard to detect. Therefore, the immune system does not respond with fever.
- Bacteria, contrary to fungus, are fully detectable by conducting a blood test on a patient.
- Fungus tries to shield itself as a coherent structure, thus forming a tumor.
- Fungus, however, is able to disperse itself undetectably by emanating single unicellular parts (in the form of minuscule, untouchable spores). It is thereby traveling through the blood stream to other parts of the body, creating metastases.
The aforesaid features describing fungus as an (internal) parasite, have been deduced. These features are all of the 5 features of cancer. However, cancer has not been defined by the understanding of what it actually is. In contrast, it has been defined by an as yet misunderstood complex of precisely these 5 features. The understood fungus realizes precisely the misunderstood complex of symptoms, which are caused by cancer.
Therefore, cancer is almost certainly a kind of fungus, which is the thesis that Dr. Simoncini has posited. This thesis has been confirmed yet more, because his therapy against fungus (using sodium bicarbonate) appears to work efficiently against cancer.
Fungus evolved in (acid) forest soil, so it needs an acid environment. As a consequence, fungus cannot handle basic sodium bicarbonate. Yet again, this process is understood when dealing with fungus, but only observed when dealing with cancer.
