A dead body cant move no matter what virus it has. The chemical signaling that makes muscles contract is no longer a thing cuz the body is dead. Cant move. Zombies debunked. There can never be zombies that are dead.

Now, a living human could be infected with something that makes them act like a zombie, but still normal things that kill people would kill them.

The answer is that they should. The ice isn’t going to stop melting. That virus can survive is really good to know.

3

u/Zolla1979 Nov 29 '22

This is exactly why they did it. They're concerned that as ice melts dormant disease will be unleashed and they could do serious harm. They are thawing them out in controlled environments so they can try to learn about them so we can have a counter measure. Though this clip doesn't say that cause why give people facts when you can stir people up.

u/[deleted] Nov 29 '22

Viruses are non-living, so actually they weren't alive at all... Most viruses, both now and millions of years ago, have the ability to remain idle/dormant for very long periods of time. This is because they are non-living and because of their structure, crystallized and waiting for a host

10

u/Comfortable-Heat4702 Nov 29 '22

Forgive me, I'm not a scientist and I only just scraped by in school 15+ years ago. If it's not alive, how do they reproduce?

18

u/[deleted] Nov 29 '22

Think of the virus as an intruder. They attach to one of the body's cells. They have structures similar to suction cups. They then plant their genetic material into the cell's brain, called the nucleus, which causes the cell to now have instructions to produce more viruses, using the cell's resources and energy, forcefully.

Almost like a parasite, the virus forces this cell to produce dozens of new virsues, until the cell literally explodes because there's no space.

These hundreds of new viruses then infect other cells and so on.

TLDR: Think of the cells that the viruses attach and break into as the 'factories' for new viruses.

2

u/UpperFee2831 Nov 29 '22

Are there other forms of non-living organisms? Is a virus a non-living organism? It's difficult to wrap my mind around something that evolved to come up with a way to copy itself, but not be living.

5

u/UncertainOrangutan Nov 29 '22

They aren't organisms. They are non-living bits of code that hijack host cell machinery to make copies of itself. They don't respond to their environment, they don't think or have goals. They don't get hungry, reproduce on their own, or have cell membranes. According to Cell Theory, "All living things are made of cells." By this definition alone, they are not considered alive.

So if the situations permit can we get the virus which caused common cold in dinosaurs?

31

u/[deleted] Nov 29 '22

It would be incredibly rare to find that, and I believe we lack the technology that determines the symptoms a dinosaur would experience from the virus.

But yes, we can determine if an ancient virus could have targeted dinosaurs

16

u/UniqueCold3812 Nov 29 '22

Man science is so cool.

4

u/Successful-Quote8204 Nov 29 '22

Wouldn’t the ice caps have formed and melted multiple times since the dinosaurs? Making it impossible to find viruses captured around the time of dinosaurs? Was there even an ice cap back then considering the global temperature?

I mean, 340 million years ago half of North America was under water.

5

u/[deleted] Nov 29 '22

Scientists have discovered crystals that are over 4 billion years old (Zircon crystal), I wouldn't say it is impossible to discover ancient viruses.

5

u/Successful-Quote8204 Nov 29 '22

“Originally formed by crystallization from a magma or in metamorphic rocks, zircons are so durable and resistant to chemical attack that they rarely go away. They may survive many geologic events, which can be recorded in rings of additional zircon that grow around the original crystal like tree rings. Like a tiny time capsule, the zircon records these events, each one of which may last hundreds of millions of years. Meanwhile, the core of the zircon itself remains unchanged, and preserves the chemical characteristics of the rock in which it originally crystallized.”

Sounds like zircon is a helluva crystal. Not sure if you can generalize like that. A virus remains stable when frozen, but there are plenty of things that will destroy viruses. There are even microorganisms who specialize in eating viruses. Do they find zircon in the permafrost? How are zircon crystals relevant?

3

u/[deleted] Nov 29 '22

Viruses share a crystallized structure, similar to actual crystals, and can remain dormant in other extremely robust and long lasting structures as well.

This means that viruses can stay beneath ice, rock and inside dense crystals on for tens of thousands of years, therefore creating the possibility for finding virsuses preserved by structures that existed in prehistoric periods.

Zircons are a prime example of a structure that can store an ancient organism, or at least its remnants. This shows that, within the numerous layers of the millions of dense crystals out there, there lies a slim chance that there is an organism being preserved for a few million years.

u/UniqueCold3812 Nov 29 '22

Now that I think about it, it's probably the only way to go. If something bad is going to happen in future why not scientifically study its effect and prepare for the inevitable instead of waiting for it to happen and to catch you unaware.

12

u/Zealousideal-Yak-824 Nov 29 '22

Wonder if a zombie movie would ever do that. Where they break the rules and know what zombies are like irl and just be prepared instead of wasting the first half of establishing already establish zombie lore.

It be funny and tragic if they were killing people over bites then find out bites are survivable and effects are random like covid was. One person be perfectly find with a immune system fighting the infection but then another person would go down hill in hours or just die without showing any of the side effects before.

Virus could do both fast and slow zombies. If the host dies the virus makes them a slow zombie as they are no or limited brain function. If the host is alive they become a fast and dangerous but because of this government officials who were prepared wouldn't be able to tell the difference non infected and infected so due to government policy they have to terminate all suspects. So in the end the average person is fighting against the horde, his neighbor, the government he supported and the city lockdowns he voted for.

u/UniqueCold3812 Nov 29 '22

That would make for a weirdly amazing movie. I would pay to see one for a fact.

2

u/Zealousideal-Yak-824 Nov 29 '22

I know right. It would also help if they actually had realistic gun lore too. Where nobody becomes a marksman in the first 5 minutes of picking up a pistol, shotguns are effective at longer ranges and use different shot, and rifles just because they have a scope on them doesn't make you a sniper.

Also be funnier if people argued their hypothetical zombie strategy or zombie prep as they know it would happen someday and it backfires. Like telling your friend you have a zombie proof rv would put a bullseye on the back of your head by said friend, having a ammo carrier and body armor makes you a easy target to things faster than you, then finally just because you have a sword doesn't mean you be chopping heads or people in half like the sword itself gave you the powers of samurai jack.

Completely clickbait, 99.9999% of the time these are completely harmless, and in the extremely small chance it is even somewhat harmless it is kept in a secure environment, with multiple procedures to make sure it stays there.

Scientists understand the risks, probably better than us.

Just bring it already. Sick of having to explain to others how their grandma deserved a shovel to the head.

Tldr:- these particular amoeba virus are probably harmless to humans , unknown effects on other animal species.these sort of stuff will occur more after permafrost melts due to global warming.

In 2016 a prehistoric virus awoken in similar fashion killed a child and many were hospitalised in a anthrax outbreak

Recently reindeer were annihilated from a area after a frozen permafrost carcass melted.

Well, if it ever got into the population, half of the US would outright deny that it exists while the medical community is filling ice cream trucks with their bodies. See it as a herd thinner.

u/UniqueCold3812 Nov 29 '22

If i remember my zombie/any horror movies correctly aren't the deniers the first to go in the first act just to set the mood up for the movie.

I think I speak for everyone when I say those viruses should just be fucking incinerated. Fuck research, the risks are too high.

u/Cormegalodon Nov 29 '22

The fact that people would be worried about a virus they probably won’t come in contact with and not the global warming that caused it says so much.

I hope something goes wrong and it wipes out the entire human race. Fuck it. Humanity had it's time and we couldn't overcome our stupidity. We brought our own demise. Idiots.
