Ok, I was rushed when I posted the topic. Allow me to clarify. First however, allow me to quote from another Star Trek mainstay, Mr. Data who says, "We must fall back on the old axiom that when other contingencies fail, whatever remains, however improbable, must be true." Lonely Among Us - 41249.3.
Going back a couple of weeks, we pursued the Peruvian Butterfly theory, which still stands in my book as a possibile cause of CH.
Too many among us refer to CH as a life form to ignore that that too is a possibility. Perhaps CH exists solely to cause pain. What if CH were the type of pure energy life form Captain Kirk and crew encountered except that instead of fear, the CH-ites, or what ever they call themselves, exist and subsist on pain itself?
That might help to explain why CH morphs, mutates and is so resistant to drug treatment.
