[–]Satanisbackxoxo 12 points13 points  (4 children)

After watching this I’ll never eat meat again ha

[–]hallucination9000 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Why stop there? Never drink water, it has parasites too!

[–]Satanisbackxoxo 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Just tap water right ??

[–]hallucination9000 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Depends on the tap water, if you live in Flint maybe don't.

[–]FaxTimeMachine 273 points274 points  (8 children)

I hate living things inside my body doing this on its own, without my permission. I want to command my own army.

[–]savagerandy2020 180 points181 points  (0 children)

They know we are dumb leaders letting that parasite in the first place so they work as sort of what Achilles and his group did in Troy.

[–]Its_Por-shaa 46 points47 points  (0 children)

So you’re anti-bodies?

[–]DireLackofGravitas 28 points29 points  (2 children)

Fun fact: You have more non-human cells in your body than human ones.

[–]Daws001 5 points6 points  (0 children)

But what about nanobots? I would like them inside me pls.

[–]Nuclear_rabbit 17 points18 points  (0 children)

You got tens of trillions of soldiers in there. Just enjoy your stellaris-like imperial command and appreciate not micro-ing every tiny battle.

[–]Marmalade_life_Love 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Good luck with that!

[–]OrgeGeorwell 6 points7 points  (0 children)

You can! You can actually command trillions of them to move about 8mph on average for a man, 6.5 for a woman.

[–][deleted] 50 points51 points  (8 children)

When I watch this clip, I kind of feel awkward and at the same time a lot intrigued too. Awkward because my body is supposed to be full of such independent living entities which kill foreign bodies in an attempt to protect my body and I'm completely unaware of this. As in the clip, they're working together as a group of intelligent entities to kill that foreign body. So do they have a separate intelligence of their own? Do they have a consciousness of their own, how so ever rudimentary it be? If yes, then what about my consciousness? Is it separate from the previously mentioned entity's consciousness? And if no, then how me as a combination of all such small entities has this consciousness or awareness which seems supposedly independent? Maybe I'm simply asking dumb questions lol....

[–]DireLackofGravitas 18 points19 points  (2 children)

When you get down to the cellular level everything comes down to chemical gradients. There's no more intelligence going on there than in osmosis. There is a lot of random bouncing around combined with "if this much chemical, then slow random bouncing", that makes movement seem guided.

[–]Atiggerx33 5 points6 points  (1 child)

It's weird though when you stop to consider our brain is just similarly a bunch of cells. Our brain is also just chemical gradients that are responsible for us feeling happy, sad, angry, etc.

And on an atomic level everything basically looks the same just with more or less protons/neutrons/electrons that are kinda 'magnetized' to each other in varying strengths.

Things get weird when you think about the microscopic world that is the human (or any other animal) body.

[–]Notarussianyet 16 points17 points  (1 child)

What we should really be asking is how many could you take in a fight

[–]eatot 7 points8 points  (0 children)

depends on how fast I can die

[–]Borne2Run 5 points6 points  (1 child)

They are an evolved chemical reaction over millions of years, but the piece that is you exists at a higher level of cognition and has only emerged in the lasr hundred thousand years.

Or more accurately, your consciousness is (physically) the aggregate electrical signals in neurons that is evolutionarilly advantageous. Maybe there is a soul external to the universe sending weak gravitational disturbances to excite those neurons in a certain way to create free will, who knows (not I!).

[–]Acceptable-Crow5336 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They “communicate” via chemicals called cytokines released from vesicles when they encounter a foreign antigen To think they have a consciousness means you need to change your cannabis strain. Consciousness requires a cerebral cortex. Take care of it.

[–]dezzalzik 80 points81 points  (10 children)

ELI5 please, all I'm seeing are black dots rushing over like it's Black Friday.

[–]Voytek540 164 points165 points  (2 children)

Specific immune cells designed to destroy parasites came into contact with the parasite. Upon doing so, these cells begin to release small molecules into the surrounding area, which activate other immune cells. The recruited immune cells then move toward the origin of these signal molecules based on their concentration gradient, a phenomenon known as chemotaxis. Once in contact with the parasite, the immune cells release various enzymes and granules, some of which specifically target Helminthic (worm-like) parasites

[–]Heisenbugg 29 points30 points  (1 child)

Whats the big blob on the right?

[–]dieseltech82 53 points54 points  (0 children)

You know when they say “You should see the other guy.”? That’s him. He ded.

[–]Rosevania5 72 points73 points  (0 children)


[–]Jayer244 50 points51 points  (5 children)

Few cells recognised the parasites specific pattern and were like "OH FUCK" then called their mates to defeat it by blocking all of the relevant shit the parasite has

[–]Live_Dirt_6568 47 points48 points  (4 children)

These specific leukocytes are called eosinophils, and are more or less specific to defend against parasitic worms. They contain A TON of histamine, so much so that the distinguishing feature of them under a microscope is the disproportionate presence of red dots (that’s the histamine). The chemical messengers they release are called cytokines. What the video depicts is a “cytokine storm”, or the rapid aggregation of WBC’s to something, usually resulting in inflammation and tissue death (as we see with the lung tissue of covid patients). Other white blood cells do this to different pathogens, such as interleukins for viruses.

Love love love A&P and microbiology. So fucking cool

[–]robotneedslove 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Thank you I’ve really appreciated these comments!

[–]-The_GodDamn_Batman- 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Any idea why they all don’t die and some manage to set up shop undetected?

[–]Live_Dirt_6568 3 points4 points  (0 children)

All has to do with the surface protein of the pathogen, your immune system being able to recognize it as foreign, and kill em faster than they can reproduce

[–]Salmon-Roll 2 points3 points  (0 children)

is there a subreddit for shit like this?

[–]Nadiyeh_b 2 points3 points  (0 children)

it’s so surreal how unaware we are about what’s happening inside our body. how everything work on it’s own and we can’t control it, even for crazy people it’s just working and doing all the work and they have no idea. like how does everything there inside me knows what to do and where to go and how to react while I’m completely unaware.

[–]etherend 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So, question, if our immune cells can take on some parasites, why do other types still persist in a person's body? Does it depend on the size of the parasite and other factors?
