The science behind turnings as I understand them

Postby Kitsune » Mon Feb 05, 2018 6:51 am

I recently read an article that a friend shared about ancient viruses being linked to thought processes of the brain. ... brain.html

It reminded me of how a vampiric turning happens.

DNA from a vampire is injected into a human host. This DNA would then start rewriting the human's genetic code. If the DNA is compatible and the host's body completely accepts the changes, new vampire is "born". This is what would be known as a flawless turning.

Unfortunately, a flawless turning is not always what happens. Like how the wrong organ or blood being transfused/planted into a body gets rejected and causes the person receiving it major and even life threatening problems, so too can the vampire DNA get rejected by the host's body and end up causing them permanent problems as the changes occur. The worst that could happen from this is the human being turned ends up dying shortly after from it.

I find the science behind how it all works very facinating, and have explored this subject in-depth.

"Frustration is simply 'I can't'. Hate is simply 'I'm not'. Fear is simply 'I won't'. Negative emotions stem from resistance, and when you flow with the current rather than against it, that negativity will dissolve and your life will improve." ~Kitsune, companions, and friend

I wonder if they have a way to check for compatibility, or at least a way of knowing who would be better suited. It’s probably more complicated then how we check blood, still it is interesting. I find a lot of the virus theories interesting as well, knowing how they effect the body.
