Breaking the Spell: The Scientific Evidence for Ending the Covid Delusion
By Thomas S. Cowan, MD
Tom Cowan’s booklet, Breaking the Spell, serves as a follow-up to our book, The Contagion Myth, providing new information to support our claim that the existence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus is unproven and that no convincing evidence exists to indicate that the cellular structures called “viruses” are pathogens.
As Cowan points out, the published literature does not contain any evidence of any virus directly isolated from any bodily fluid from even one person suffering from a so-called “viral” illness—such as chicken pox, rabies, measles, AIDS or Covid-19—and that’s not because separation and isolation are impossible to do. Scientists are able to isolate identical particles (called bacteriophages) from bacterial cultures and show pure samples of these particles under an electron microscope. These particles are morphologically identical, made of exactly the same proteins, with identical genetic sequences.
So why have scientists not done this with viruses? The answer they give: “There is not enough virus to find.” Yet, these scarce viruses are supposed to be the ferocious agents that are making us sick!
If it is not possible to collect enough viruses to study them, how do scientists “prove” that viruses make us sick? They do this through a procedure that produces a “cytopathic effect” in cells. This process was the invention of John Franklin Enders, for which he received a Nobel Prize in 1954. It starts with taking swabs from sick patients—Enders used throat swabs from children with measles—and mixing them with other substances. Enders mixed the throat swabs with milk, human kidney cells, rhesus monkey kidney cells, bovine amniotic fluid, beef embryo extract and horse serum—all of which contain protein and genetic material. To this culture Enders added antibiotics, known to be toxic to kidney cells. After a number of days, Enders observed the breakdown of the cells in the culture—called a cytopathic effect (CPE). The healthy, normal-sized cells degenerated into giant, disorganized cells with internal holes or vacuoles, and in this disorganiced mass small particles were observed—these small particles they labeled “viruses.” The CPE, they concluded, was “proof” that viruses from the measles sample infected and killed the cells in the culture. This flawed process is what virologists call “viral isolation,” and it is on this culture that they perform “genetic analysis.”
Interestingly, Enders carried out the same experiment without using measles swabs. He confessed, “The cytopathic changes it induced in the unstained preparations could not be distinguished with confidence from the viruses obtained from measles.” As Cowan notes, “This is strong evidence that any CPEs were caused by the culture conditions, not by any alleged virus coming from the measles patients.” Yet, in all the published papers on coronavirus, virologists use these methods and present CPE as the proof that the virus exists and causes disease.
Cowan then describes a recent experiment carried out by German virologist Stefan Lanka. In it he shows that normal cell cultures (without added material from sick people) still break down when they are starved with a minimal nutrient medium and poisoned with three antibiotics. The “viruses” that appear in the deteriorating tissue are the result of cell breakdown, not the cause.
Lanka added yeast RNA to one of the starved and poisoned cultures and then had the material analyzed for the SARS-CoV-2 genome, and guess what? The computer found the SARS-CoV-2 genome in the yeast RNA! In other words, “genome sequencing” is yet another fraud perpetrated by the scientific “discipline” called virology.
Breaking the Spell also elaborates on other frauds including the PCR test, Covid vaccines and even current models of cell morphology.
Progress cannot be made in biology, Cowan argues, until we recognize the fact that our cells are composed primarily of structured water, and that water is subject to influences from outside the cell: “. . . light and all the various frequencies, energy forms, wavelengths, sounds, colors, thoughts, emotions and other emanations that come to us from the universe.” Wellness occurs when we provide our cells with all that is noble and perfect—nutrient-dense food, sunlight, clean air, pure water, a coherent and native electromagnetic atmosphere, truth, freedom and love—not by poisoning them with vaccines and drugs.
As Cowan has consistently emphasized, we are living under a spell, a “perception package” installed in our early years and kept alive with constant propaganda. “Viruses are everywhere, they infect us and make us sick; we must find them and defeat them. The universe is hostile and we must be afraid.”
Tom and I have been accused of “sowing dissension” in the holistic health community with our insistence that “viruses” are actually helpful exosomes. But this is what the science is showing us, and only by eliminating fear with the truth will we break the spell.
