This is pretty wild...they have been studying things with high powered microscopes for how many years and nobody ever noticed these??

Apparently they are bits of genetic material that have no detectable sequences or even structural similarities to other biological agents...

They are roughly 1000 nucleotide structures of RNA which are very tiny and likely why they have gone undetected for so long.

Some think they more closely resemble RNA Plasmids than viruses although they have not been able to determine or define the impacts of these 'Obelisks' on the host bacterial cells.

When exactly did they find those things? after 2021?
Nice try to cause COVID vaccine hysteria, but they already have found those are ancient structures that bridge the gap between bacteria and more primitive cells that were quite literally hiding in plain sight due to their tiny size.

Barking up the wrong tree with that anyway and showing a complete lack of understanding about how that works in the body.

A simple question triggered you so hard, maybe there is something you did that you regret.

Not my business anyway buddy.

Just tired of hearing the pseudo science nonsense people treat as actual science from Internet dudes they listen to.
Yeah I perfectly understand what you mean, just like those tinfoil hat wearer that talked about lab creation for a bug while the science was crystal clear that the bad guy was a bat!
