Celeste Solum - "Special Report: Clade-X Pandemic Exercise & COVID-19" - 3/6/20
n May 15, 2018 Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security will host a tabletop exercise to illustrate high-level strategic decisions and policies that the United States and the world will need to pursue in order to prevent a severe pandemic. That exercise is named Clade X. The simulation will convene a meeting of 10 government leaders who hold senior leadership positions within the government. These players will be presented with a scenario that highlights unresolved real-world policy issues. Clade X will be held in the manner of two other catastrophic exercises Dark Winter and Atlantic Storm. Clade X will be funded by the Open Philanthropy Project. Unlike the previous exercises embedded in Clade X is a provocative name with a dual purpose meaning.
Veiled secrecy is associated with Clade X. There is a new family in town which might leap out of any science fiction movie such as Jurassic Park. The family members are the Orciraptor and Viridiraptor who hold distinct ecological niches in aquatic ecosystems. They are 'necrophytophagous' whose mission as an organism is dedicated to the feeding and devouring until its prey is dead. While the later member is a 'parasitoid' Protist (one celled parasite). The Orciraptor and Viridiraptor belong to Clade X. The term raptorial or ‘feeders’ implies they are predatory, specifically grasping its prey while it consumes it. They have a nucleus and mitochondria therefore are labeled 18S ribosomal DNA.
18S and 16S are often used in biological warfare testing. These proteins are amplified using universal primers containing DNA barcodes and then released, while researcher’s voyeur the symbiotic explosion.
Past biological warfare tests have assured the public that the aerosol testing is safe and non-toxic, only to later come out and admit, in fact, poisonous to human, animal, and plant populations.
Were the creators of the John Hopkins experiment unaware or naive on the implications of the name Clade X? It is highly unlikely given that the facility collaborates and does research with ribosomal DNA.
From the time of Aristotle, possibly earlier, life was classified in taxonomical rank, in groups, within a hierarchy. The ranks are species, genus, family, order, class, phylum, kingdom, domain etc… The hierarchy begins with the universals and drills down to the particulars for the purposes of species identification.
Biological taxonomy, also known as typology, stems from the works of Aristotle and is commonly interpreted as being anti-evolutionary. Essentially it entails that a species and higher taxa possess definitional essences that define them in terms of necessary and sufficient, intrinsic, unchanging, and ahistorical properties. For instance, a human will always be a human.
A classical work by Linnaeus in his 1758 edition of Systema Naturae listed 4400 species known to science. Through the years the number of known species grew and therefore it became harder to accommodate them with the standard seven categorical ranks. Taxonomists invented new categories, such as subfamily, superorder, and tribe. Today there are over 1.5 million described species, perhaps millions more uncategorized.
BIOLOGICAL CLADE COUP D'ETAT
Seizing the cornerstone foundation of biology with conceptual distinction was necessary if the Darwinian Revolution was to be taken to the next level within taxonomy.
To accommodate a plethora of ‘new’ species, aliens, reanimation of extinct species and entities, genetically modified organisms, and synthetic biology, a new system was coined by Julian Huxley in 1957. It would be based upon clade instead of rank.
Clade comes from the Ancient Greek “branch” and is a group of organisms that consist of a common ancestor and all its lineal descendants. It is the modern usurper of the Tree of Life, but unlike the Linneaus hierarchy, clades may be an individual, population, or species; nested one in another; and then branching out. The idea of a clade did not exist before Darwin. Clades are based by necessity only on internal or external morphological similarities between organisms. Defining clades intentionally presupposes that their definitions are analytically true, and hence not amenable to revision in the light of new knowledge. If we are to think of them as analytic definitions, then, when phylogenetic definitions point or refer to some hypothetical ancestor, no new knowledge of phylogeny can indicate any flaw in those definitions. It is considered an absolute.
Claudistics is now known as the International PhyloCode. It is evolutionary taxonomy based upon clades verified by fossil evidence. In claudistics, humans are categorized in the same clade with reptiles, birds, and tetrapods. The very concept is troubling, confusing, and a dangerous for a person of faith. Nevertheless, academia has been implementing this system over the last 10 years in plain sight.
German biologist Emil Henning is considered to be the founder of the PhyloCode (cladistics). He proposed a classification system which represented repeated branchings of the family tree, as opposed to the previous systems, which put organisms on a "ladder", with supposedly more "advanced" organisms at the top.
The PhyloCode was first proposed to academia in 1968. A set of rules governing species names was included in the draft. There was deep division within the participants and no consensus could be made as to whether the system should be binomen (binary naming in two parts, for instance Homo sapien) or epithet based (naming with byname, description, or attribution, such as Richard the Lion-Hearted).
A few years after the PhyloCode was proposed, in 1975, a working group convened a decision made to genetically modify all life on earth. The implications of this effort encompass the world as we know it, or used to know it.
The International PhyloCode:
Breaks God given barriers between species
Claims the right to semantic trickery, such as what is ‘natural’
Creates distinctions between kinds/classes and individuals by what they contribute.
Defines what is ‘real’ and what is not ‘real,’ in essence, reality itself.
Treating species as kinds or nominal classes will entail that they have no real existence and that they are purely conventional groups of organisms.
Rejects the issues of reality and spatiotemporal localization and the metaphysical (God, afterlife, etc…) concerns of individualism
It establishes a war between classes and individuals
Traditional ranks have been eliminated so anything can be related to anything
Holds that individuals are unsatisfactory
Abandons typological thinking which the bible clearly endorses
Exterminates what it means to be human with a new convoluted system
Initial argument for individuality of species and taxa was given free reign in the systematics literature becoming intertwined with a number of more or less related issues, making it virtually impossible to discuss in isolation.
Establishes ‘systematization’ consisting of the ordering of particular things into systems. Systems are more inclusive wholes, based on the relationships that their parts exhibit one to another due to a natural process.
Darwin views species as concrete entities denying the metaphysical and timelessness
Purging of the metaphysical in order to unify the sciences
Contrary to the Bible the nominalist view is that although nature makes things similar and different, the classification of them into kinds or classes is the workmanship of men.
Species are considered as individuals
Urges us to reconsider the standard conception of ‘kinds’ (i.e. question Genesis 1:24)
Changes what is true and what is false in light of revisitability of ‘kind’ definitions by empirical science
Adoption of homeostatic property clusters (HPCs) Homeostatic property cluster terms are defined by the associated property clusterings understood as ongoing phenomena in the world. An example is the recent emphasis on syndromic clusters in medicine.
Homeostasis is imperfect and by definition can evolve over time.
A pre-Darwinian biologist categorizing species IS NOT considered because he would have used fundamental units of God and His creation. He is predetermined to be offering a false and revisable definition reflecting posteriori judgment.
Although we had no say, on May 24, 2007 the Committee on Phylogenetic Nomenclature (CPN), consisting of 12 elected members from the International Society for Phylogenetic Nomenclature (ISPN), adopted a new article in the International Code of Phylogenetic Nomenclature (ICPN or PhyloCode) addressing the naming of species in the context of phylogenetic nomenclature. It took ten years to arrive at this decision to introduce a new biological system because it was so controversial. The new system threw off the chains of traditional identification system including the ranks of the old system.
Implementation began using dual nomenclatures. Gradually over time only the International PhyloCode was published. Policies are based upon this theoretical system. Along with the adoption of the clade system will be new burdensome and confusing regulations, to the degree, no man has experienced until this point in history.
Clade X Decimates Humanity to Make Room for Other 'Life' Forms
by Celeste B. June 01, 2018
The word over the net this week was that a moderately contagious but lethal novel pathogen precipitated a catastrophic end to 150 million people worldwide with 15 million in the US alone. Clade X was day-long pandemic exercise hosted by John Hopkins Center for Health Security in Washington, D.C., on May 15th. If you read my article Epic Battle for Alien Alignment then you know that this is more about creating a new classification system for all biological life, opening up of the organizational chart for various types of entities from demonic, to aliens, to cyborg 'humans,' than a pandemic exercise. Although the rhetoric is hot right now to secure funding for future pandemics or unknown origins.
In the real-world keep your eye on the Nipah Virus which is breaking out in India right now. There are concerns that it might spread.
Meanwhile, back at the exercise, the scenario opens with the present-day outbreak of a new, serious respiratory disease in Germany and Venezuela. Soon after, Clade X is identified as a novel strain of human para-influenza virus with genetic elements of Nipah virus. In the weeks that follow a fringe group bent on reducing the human population claims responsibility for the creation and intentional release of the disease. Authorities confirm those claims and verify that the novel strain was indeed engineered by the group’s scientists. There is no vaccine, and pressure grows as pockets of cases appear in the United States. Clade X quickly causes widespread, worldwide anxiety as case counts and deaths mount.
You can view the Clade X slides which are the playbook for the exercise, now that the exercise has been completed. I am also inserting some of the 'news' clips of Clade X 'coverage' that makes exercises very realistic.
Clade X simulated a series of National Security Council–convened meetings of ten U.S. government leaders, played by individuals prominent in the fields of national security or epidemic response. Their dialogue as the scenario unfolded addressed significant uncertainties in current prevention and response capabilities, supposedly hamstrung by policy challenges at the federal level.
At the conclusion of the exercise, the Center presented six strategic policy goals needing commitment from the United States to prevent or reduce the worst possible outcomes in future pandemics.
Those recommendations are:
Develop capability to produce new vaccines and drugs for novel pathogens within months not years.
Pioneer a strong and sustainable global health security system.
Build a robust, highly capable national public health system that can manage the challenges of pandemic response.
Develop a national plan to effectively harness all US healthcare assets in a catastrophic pandemic.
Implement an international strategy for addressing research that increases pandemic risks.
Ensure the national security community is well prepared to prevent, detect, and respond to infectious disease emergencies.
A full description of each policy recommendation is available on the Clade X website, along with video recordings of the four exercise segments.
Johns Hopkins says that in the weeks ahead, the Center’s Clade X project team will synthesize the most important points from unscripted discussions among players during the exercise and disseminate those findings widely among members of the U.S. and international bio-security policy communities.
