V5 Vampire Virus

Posted on May 11, 2010 at 1:44 AM

      Ah, yes... The V5 Vampire Virus...

      For those of you who are unfamiliar with this, allow us to sum it up for you briefly first, then we shall get into the meat of the topic.

      It is believed by some that the cause of Vampyrism is to be attributed to some type of "virus." It is thought that this virus is a sort of endogenous retrovirus, behaving much like HIV. In short, retroviruses are viruses that, once in the body, attack the genetic make-up of our bodies, altering our very DNA, and the term, "endogenous," means that it is passed on through the offspring from the parent organism. Therefore, "endogenous retrovirus," means that it is a DNA-altering virus that can be passed on to the infected individual's children.


      Now that you know what an endogenous retrovirus is, let us delve into the topic of the "Vampire Virus."

      The, "Vampire Virus," has been given many, many names over the years, including, "Code V," "Code 5," "K-17," "G-17," "Stem Alpha," and, perhaps most notably, "The V5 Virus." It is believed that this is what causes Vampyrism because, as studies have shown, retroviruses can have some rather significant (long-term) impacts on the physical rendering of one's appearance and attributes.






      Allow us to start from the beginning...of time, that is... You see, endogenous retroviruses are the primary source of "evidence" for those who support the evolutionary theory and try to debunk all religion; however, it should be noted that many religious figures also use this as evidence for a divine being(s). Now then, that being said, there is a lot of evolutionary jargon involved in endogenous retroviruses, but we'll try to keep it simple for now.

      What are known as, "common ancestors," are merely the creature that all sub-species evolved from. For example, all birds came from a single, "common ancestor," with other species and kingdoms having been derived from other common ancestors. It is believed that there were several of each common ancestor roaming the earth at some point in time long, long ago. The common ancestors were, essentially, the "pure" species of avian (birds), mammalia (mammals), and the other animal groups. So, what was it that made these creatures change into, well, something else?

      Charles Darwin stated that it is reasonable to make the assumption that our environments play some role in our developments as species, thus explaining why, in the Gallopagos Islands, turtles on some islands have short necks and uniform shells while turtles on other islands have long necks with a cut-out in their shell around their heads which allow them to raise their necks higher. This would also explain why Africans and other peoples with closer proximity to the equator are of a darker skin complexion than individuals in the extreme northern reaches of the world who tend to be of a much paler complexion; because if the Africans were not so dark they would burn, and because the sun shines to a much lesser extent in the north (if the sun even shines at all, which it doesn't in some parts of the year), the peoples of such regions have less need for darker skin, therefore they are more pale.

      It could be said that the discovery of retroviruses both futhers Darwin's theory and destroys it, depending on the individual's views. It is believed that retroviruses played a key role in the development of life as we know it. To Darwin, we began with a common ancestor and its offspring adapted to their different environments accordingly. To retrovirologists, we began with a common ancestor who became infected with a retrovirus, altering its DNA, and, therefore, the DNA of its offspring, making it an endogenous retrovirus. This endogenous retrovirus then continued to alter the DNA of its host organisms through many, many, many generations until its host had achieved the new design that which the retrovirus was programmed to change it to.

      In short, we had a basic, common ancestor with simplistic functions, but that design wasn't good enough so the retroviruses came along and infected the organism, thus altering its genetic makeup, which, as science has proven countless times, alters the physical attributes of the creature. Over many years, the virus continued to change the creature until the virus either died somehow or something happened that caused the virus to become dormant and stop functioning (science hasn't gotten that far quite yet).






      It is believed that a retrovirus similar to that of its ancient viral ancestors has been born and is beginning to affect the homosapien species, entering the organism and altering its DNA. Some of these changes include increases in reflexes, day and night eyesight, smell, hearing, endurance, strength, agility, a change in the body's circadian rhythm to be more awake at night (when most predators hunt), and much, much more.

      Believers of this 'new retrovirus' will often cite the Mayan calendar and various other astronomical charts from different cultures, stating that they predicted, "a great change," in the year 2012, and that this change they mentioned could very well be the next step in human evolution – a new endogenous retrovirus.

      This retrovirus would be passed on through the offspring of the infected, and could likewise be transferred via a blood transfusion to infect others. The virus would then force the new host to undergo the changes it was programmed to inflict until there are no further changes to be made and its purpose has been fulfilled. It is theorized that this state of "fulfillment" is Vampyrism.

      One individual with whom we spoke took this a step further, even, so as to say that this is why we Hunger for blood, and it must be said that it is definitely one of the most logical reasons we have heard thus far. This individual's theory for our need for blood was that it is what is needed to "fuel" the retrovirus and the changes it must make to our DNA. Our bodies would begin to enjoy these changes and, consequentially, become addicted to them – dependent on them even, and would therefore not allow them to cease so easily. When the retrovirus became weak, our bodies would induce upon us the symptoms of the Hunger, telling us to Feed; to nourish the virus so that it may continue to advance our bodies to the next step in evolution.






      Unfortunately for fans of the "Vampire Virus," there are many, many, many kinks in the hypothesis.

  • For one, viruses act without the necessity of nourishment.
  • For another, it is not yet 2012, but is, in fact, quite far from it.
  • Also, if it were endogenous, as many claim, it would have spread so widely by now that everybody would have it, and, therefore, be a Vampyre. No matter how you look at it, it's a mathematical impossibility.
    • This is blindingly obvious since if we were to assume that it is the cause of Vampyrism it would have had to have been around for thousands and thousands of years, equivalent to the age of the earliest Vampyre.
    • Even if we were to assume that Vampyrism has only been around for a few brief decades –although there is ample evidence to prove otherwise–, approximately half (at least) of the earth's population would have contracted the virus by now, and since we have (supposedly) decoded the entire human genome recently, we would have noticed it by now, especially since it would only show up in some individuals (Vampyres) and not others.


      One could argue, "Well, this is a special kind of retrovirus because nothing of this scale has ever occured before," but we sincerely hope that you, the reader, realize how childish this argument sounds, especially in light of the fact that retrovirologists, themselves, state quite firmly that things of this scale have, indeed, occured in the past – the evolution of every single species on earth is a pretty large-scale development if you ask me. Immaturity aside, it has been proven that viruses do not require nourishment – this is why they are so lethal and are so difficult, if not impossible, to eradicate. The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a beautiful example of this.

      Of course, they would then argue, "Well, then it's something else," to which we would reply, "Well now, didn't you just state quite adamantly that it was a retrovirus and make dozens of web pages and blogs providing alleged 'proof' of why it is such a thing? Well, what is it then if it's not a retrovirus? Oh, you don't know? Well, then it would appear that you are now in the same boat as the rest of us, as well as without any legitimate reason as to how this could even remotely resemble a retrovirus."






      Another item that believers of the "V5 Virus" like to mention is the Harbinger3_DR. In lay man's terms, the Harbinger3_DR enters a host, scurries along the DNA fixing anything and eveyrhting that's wrong with it, and cuts-and-pastes pieces of DNA to make them better, and is even quite capable of cutting itself out of the genome itself, continuing onward in its journey to make every single strand of DNA 'perfect.' Our comment on the Harbing3_DR? That's pretty cool.

      There's just one minor (actually it's pretty major) problem with the theory that this gene has anything to do with Vampyrism: "...the Harbinger3_DR gene is extinct in humans, but zebra fish contain a version of the transposon." [Scientific American] Well then, by the looks of it unless Vampyres are zebra fish (*checks for gills* nope, no gills on either of us) we're out of luck. Incidentally, so are fans of the Harbinger3_DR somehow magically contributing to the so-called, "Vampire Virus."

      Ironically enough, the above quote is in the abstract of the article so it's pretty hard to miss. Even if we were to assume they skipped over that, it is also re-stated in the third sentence of the paper. Let's go even further so as to say that they missed that too or perhaps overlooked it entirely simply because it didn't work in their favor –that's fine–, the paper is about gene therapy. Yes, that's right, this is what it's all about:

"'The reason we chose Harbinger3_DR was this unexpectedly specific insertion site,' [...] 'We were hoping to use this [reincarnated] element for later studies, to understand how it selects this specific target site,'" because, "Modern scientists would love to master its secrets so they could more precisely control where genes introduced for gene therapy incorporate themselves into a patient's DNA strand," due to the fact that, "Inactivated viruses are currently the only means of permanently inserting a new gene into a patient's DNA, but the viruses integrate fairly randomly into the host genome."

      How people can take a paper about studying safer and more efficient ways to control genes in gene therapy (especially since dormant viruses are often currently used and, "Viral insertion into critical genes has triggered lethal leukemias in several gene therapy recipients," and, "Rarely, viruses can also regain their ability to reproduce, posing a risk of becoming infectious.") and turn it into something about Vampyres being injected with a rogue zombie strand of Harbinger3_DR and have it running around making their DNA "perfect" (we may be conceited at times, but to say we're perfect on a genetic level!?) is beyond us. It really seems like these people are grasping for straws.

      [All of the above quotes were taken from Scientific American. If you can't access it, scroll to the bottom of this article for help with finding the source.]






      Oh, and lest we forget to mention this last little bit of information, here it is: http://web.archive.org/web/20030912124237/http://v5.gq.nu/site.html, the worst nightmare of all believers in the, "Vampire Virus."

      You see, the entire idea of Vampyrism being caused by a virus was thanks to a very imaginative TV series creator, named Joe Ahearne. Joe Ahearne is the creator of the (no longer running) television mini-series "Ultraviolet" in which mankind is destroying itself as they advance in technological discoveries, such as the atom and hydrogen bombs, as well as grow more and more foolish so as to allow the spread of AIDS to become that of a low-grade epidemic and destroy the planet upon which they live. The main storyline of the series was about vampires re-gaining control of their food source (humans) after allowing them to live to their own devices for so long.

      In the series, the vampires were called, "Code V's," while the particular genetic vampirism-causing strain was labeled, "Code Five." From this it is fairly easy to see where the term, "V5," was derived from. Coincidentally enough, "V5," is by far the most commonly used term in place of the words, "Vampire Virus." In fact, it is also quite common to see them paired together.

      Still don't believe it was just a television series? Well then, take a gander at the IMDB profile for "Ultraviolet."






      In short, the so-called, "Vampire Virus," is a fake, a sham, a lie, and a hoax.


      [We were going to write about the actual functions of endogenous retroviruses to further disprove this theory, but a site member, Libertia Supra Omis, has kindly done that for us a bit, so we encourage you to look down in the comments at Libertia Supra Omnis's posts.]

Hi, I'm john divight lija, the same user that john dissaor.
I wanted to dedicate a few simple words for those who do not understand, make or oppose to the appropriate virus v5:

ok, I let me believe in the virus before it any or mental pathology a routine of life, because it is not a normal part of life,
are different and have something that makes us different from others. if vampires have the same chromosomes and the physiognomy of the
Humans then would no longer human but vampires must therefore fitting that something else is in the real vampires.

and what I think is that you must be born a vampire or a vampire in your lifestyle that lso chromosomes or some language in your genetic make you
change and do know what you are, because the human being as we have seen has changed in different ages since the beginning of history
and what vampires also need a change let us know and see what we are i if this is true, it might also have some
DNA genetic pathology or to do so you can switch to other humans into a vampire.

this is all I think about.


That is an argument to be a vampire. course you can see it in many ways i go by many different ways, but if you have sufficient certainty to know how it goes and how it produces it, then find the end of everything and the truth of why we are so.

because they believe in something that is in faith when we are different and some of us in physical and mental health is different? then is that we are God? then we would like and we would not be human and vampires ... then we are created with faith, but with something that has to do with genetics and that goes with the DNA and chromosomes.

mabye 2012 will be the acceptence of vampyres trough the world and vamypres and humans can live in haromey

Perhaps, perhaps. That is a theory. Some day it will happen, as it is inevitable, but when will that day be? I do not believe that any one person can tell for sure.

Firstly, you may reach Azaria via her blog, here.

Now then, in regards to the amount of knowledge already known by an individual, yes, this site was designed to help those who are Awakening, as well as provide a community for those who have long been Awakened. The information on this site will usually be for those who are Awakening, as, well, if you are already Awakened then there would be no information needed; thus a moot point. Then again, this is the case with every Vampyre support website, for the same reasons, so, once more, your statement is merely pointing out the obvious.

The "Hunger" is one of the many names given, while to some it may be the, "Beast," the, "Thirst," (which is also one that we use periodically) and the list goes on and on. Now then, in regards to "ancestors" it really depends on how far back you are speaking of. Obviously you are not all that Old, otherwise you would know that spoken language did not exactly, "exist," so, please, enlighten us.

Your Conversation is very...hmm... amusing. What some think of Vampyres, is quite despicable. But, I guess you do somehow make a point. Azaria, don't you too find it amusing?
Vampyres are a respectable and honorable people. We don't take things lightly. But yes to those of you only, just realizing what you are. This sight is helpful, but then again, others who have already known, may find it amusing like myself. Now to the point.
We have the 'hunger' as thats what you so call it, but I remember what the ancestors called it. Hmmm, Don't you?

commical is not a term i would use off hand but yes, after a while it does simply bring a smile to my lips. at times i may chuckle. i was the worst kind of monster, no remorse, no caring for those i harmed, and the worst thing is the fact i loved one of them, loved and broke them like a piece of trash. that i remember, but i cant seem to remember my birth only that it was long ago when the first men were still being made. and i rememeber the name azrael. my name was once azrael. that is all. also i remember things i later read in books and laugh, muses took my story and spread it like wildfire. it is quite bothersome at times. and yes my present has happened before, my future will be a repeat of three thousand years ago and i am changing as i always change into who i am awakening into, most awaken without changing much, but i am where the phrase "turn" came from, i change so much i am hardly a shell of what i was before i did. as for my soul mate they tell me such things when it is nessecary.

Yes. If it were a retrovirus (particularly and endogenous retrovirus), everybody would have it. (Endogenous simply means "passed down through offspring.")

Here is a quote from the above article:

"Also, if it were endogenous, as many claim, it would have spread so widely by now that everybody would have it, and, therefore, be a Vampyre. This is blindingly obvious assuming that it is the cause of Vampyrism, and thus had to have been around for thousands and thousands of years, equal to the age of the earliest Vampyre, his/herself, but even if we were to assume that Vampyrism has only been around for a few brief decades --although there is ample evidence to prove otherwise--, approximately half (at least) of the earth's population would have contracted the virus by now, and since we have (supposedly) decoded the entire human genome recently, we would have noticed it by now, especially since it would only show up in Vampyres.

In 2012 there is supposed to be the cataclysmic end of the world. The Mayans predicted a "new phase in life" (no, it doesn't end at 2012), and various tribal cultures both extinct and still together across the globe have predicted similar occurences. Nostrodamus also allegedly predicted this (although, quite frankly, the day Nostradamus predicts anything correctly...THAT will be the day the world ends, haha).

and of course i guess at ten, i rmemeber there were not many humans on earth, in the hundreds or thousands, it was in the first cycle of man which i do not remember, i can only feel and get feeling and try to figur on that, maybe a vision here and there but thats it. i do try not to think to much of the past but i feel ti is often times better than the present.. though i always think that, even in the past which i think of. it could have been later, or earlier. as for adam and eve and lilith, i knew very little of them, i would have said vampires were born of god or of a demon before i met others, i do not remember much of my past because long ago i blocked my past from myself to protect me from what i once was so i could remain at least partially sane. but that too is only what i feel, and what my soul mate has told me.

blocking the past is something nice to do and yes it will make you feel better, i did as such, but the major downside is things come after you and try to kill you for something that you don't remember. its a bit of an odd feeling really, them telling you that you know and you trying to explain i have no recollection of such an event. as for the torture, sadly i've had a past life that is similarish, stupid organization haha why did i create such an abomination, oh well its the past and i have attoned for such a sin. well at the very least tried to and i still try to, but thats not my main purpose anymore. Why has your soul mate told you such things? the past present and future are essentially the same sadly, this time at least things are more descrete which is good and bad at the same time. vampyres and humans relationships are developing quite nicely as well and it makes me truly happy. about the monster thing i truly relate. i wasn't the best person back then, people still try to kill me its a bit commical now i suppose.

my first life was ten generations, but i was not as i am now. to be honest much of it was a fog, i remember up to three thousand years ago vividly then it goes to a fog and yes, some things are best left in the past. such as the monster i was when i first became like this which i wish i never found out. but that is a long story which i do not have all the pieces to yet. it involves taking women children men and boys into a dungen room racking them and pulling them apart slowly piece by piece savoring the blood. but that is almost all that i remember of it. and as for dream shades, i do not so much avoid them as try not to disturb them, my dreams often tell of things i should think about, objctives for the day, and mental issues i should try to solve, if they are in my dreams doing things to change it i can not efficiently do what it is i have to and will lapse into a state of calm which most could only try to imagine, i did it only once before in this life, so still and calm not even a stab wound would wake me, i lost 10 lbs because i would not eat or move or speak or think, just sit and watch. that is what a dream shade did to me, as for demons i would never run, they do not intimidate me in the least. it is more the creatures who mean no harm that do the most of it.

don't worry you didn't cause a comotion, i enjoyed your theories. i suppose there are things best left unknown for most. you where born ten generations after Cain correct, did you notice that Adam was not alive again until much after that. The whole adam and lilith thing is behind us and part of the past best left unknown and not thought about. also there where no demons nor was satin there yet. the darkness and light was from adam's soul, eve and lilith i'm not quite sure. the history and the beginning are best left unsaid and unremembered. az about the dreamshades, are they strong whatsoever? why do you care enough to avoid them?
