Speculation On A Zombie Outbreak

Yes, we all know that zombies in television series such as the Walking Dead are only fiction but it is fun to speculate on the origins of a fictional zombie outbreak.  So here are some ideas to consider.

  • Origins could be the side effects of scientific experimentation pertaining to perhaps biological warfare or extending the life span of sick medical patients, or could be a new strain of an existing virus such as rabies, etc.
  • Outbreaks occur as the virus is passed from person to person through either bites or infected scratches which perpetuates spreading.
  • Once infected the body undergoes changes such as shutting down non essential bodily functions, reducing thought processes to primitive levels; body temperature can no longer be regulated, fever ensues and the body is reduced to a dead state.
  • Speed of infection varies based on immune system response, whether the virus is contracted through a bite or a scratch and where on the body the bite or scratch occurs. 
  • Zombie movements are slow, lumbering and erratic and they exhibit very poor motor control and coordination.
  • Nerves and tissues decay, emotions are gone and zombies have a basic, primitive drive to feed. 
  • They become hyper-sensative to light and sound.
  • Zombies can be stopped by destroying the brain.  Rifles, shotguns, handguns and edged or blunt weapons are effective. 

  1. Steve Quayle and Sue Bradley have some interesting concepts on this subject. Also it would be good to look at the CIA’s project “MK Ultra” and “Naomi,” plus a new drug from Columbia called scopolamine. A lot of research and reaction is being initiated for something that is officially being considered as a “fantasy” created in Hollywood.

    Can zombies gain weight from eating too much? 😉

      Heee heeeee heeee…..now that’s an excellent thought 🙂 My theory is no since their body functions have broken down and they are in a constant state of decay.

  3. Ah! I was wondering what happened to me every Saturday morning when I have to stagger out from the snuggly buggly duvet at 05:00 and weave my way to work 🙂 Certainly points #3, #5 – #7 are completely compliant with my usual condition on those occasions. However #8 probably wouldn’t be necessary as it can safely be said I am brain dead at such unearthly hours anyway!!!

    You should look into “prions” they are frightening and have been around and affecting people for ages. They are easy to spread and have been known to be spread by Humans eating Humans.
