“Zombie” ants fall victim to mind-control fungus


This article has nothing to do with occult symbolism, but I can’t help but to see parallels with humans and media.

‘Zombie ants’ may sound like the title of an Ed Wood movie, but, according to National Geographic, they are quite real.

Oddly, there’s nothing very zombie-like about the actual ants. It’s only when a particular fungus takes over the ant’s brain that things get weird.

Once the “stalk of the newfound fungus species Ophiocordyceps camponoti-balzani infects an ant, the ant gives up control over its own body. After the fungus is in control, it forces the ant to scamper toward “a location ideal for the fungi to grow and spread their spores.” Then, it’s lights out for the ant. Who knew a fungus could be so diabolical?

These wild discoveries were made by a group in Brazil headed by entomologist David Hughes. National Geographic published a series of pictures of ants that have “lost their minds” to the fungus. You can check out a sample of them below. Not for the squeamish.

Actually mr maru.the free ant, You are just repeating what the medical journals tell you to believe. I think you'll find, funnily enough, but not for my poor mum, the trillions upon trillions of £/$ wasted pursuing this outdated theory have still not managed to find a cure. This is because there are still Trillions upon trillions of £/$ to be made by corrupt charities and drug companies perpetuating this bollocks. The most cutting edge alternative research seems to point to a naturally occurring fungus that is harmless to a healthy immune system but turns cancerous when the immune system is depleted by the toxins we are bombarded with on a daily basis. This would explain why cancer is at epidemic proportions, because we are being poisoned on an unprecedented scale. There is an interesting article about candida on the david icke website and it appears to be curable quite… Read more »


"And here we have the Zombie ants who live right next door to The Gaga Zombie thank you for visiting the zoo this afternoon kids hope you had fun!" lmfao

These famous people who represent this are creepy and physco


Well God Bless everyone and thanks for all the info and insight

And thanks VC for ANOTHER amazing article about the twisted world we live in

HAH….this is too much…XD

To the point.

Another interesting fact is that the two major hallucinogenic drugs to come from MK-ULTRA labs in the 50s were both derived from two different species of fungus. One was LSD-25, which was synthesized from Ergotamine, a fungus that grew on wheat in Eastern Europe, and was found to have intense hallucinogenic properties. In past years, certain entire villages had become "dosed" with LSD from bread products made with the ergotamine fungus-infested wheat. Numerous crazy events happened to there poor unsuspecting people, not knowing what had happened to them, other than to think that they were losing their minds…which they were temporarily. Sadly, some were very unlucky and lose their lives during these "trips", as they could not deal with the chaotic feelings and hallucinations and ended up jumping to their deaths from buildings, bridges, etc. Tragic stuff. The other primary MK-ULTRA test drug was Psylicybin, which is an alkaloid that… Read more »

yes, yes… those drugs are bad, so drink alcohol instead! (brewed in with sodium fluoride water of course)

Did you know that bulls have been controled by fongus too

i wonder if the spores in the chemtrails are zombie fungus??

wonder that myself. and/or contain nanotechnology. crazy chem trails!

Bwahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahaha! Great Comparison 🙂

She will probably be dressing up like a snail soon:


The picture of Lady Gaga seems to be more related to Baphomet than some recently discovered fungi.

This fungi was discovered before the picture of GoobyGaGa was taken, so it is conceivable that IS what it is. But I see what you mean. I thought it was alluding to Baphomet when I saw it- but it has an uncanny resemblance to the structure from the ant's head.

it was a joke more than likely… irony is the word were looking for here.

Lol…if i would have been eating at the time I seen the pic of lady gaga n read the caption I would of most likely choked on my food….made for a real good laugh! Thanks VC

woa love the link creeeeeepyyyyy

I saw this on theOatmeal awhile back, has a really funny comic that goes with it.

something zombie, i appreciate it


Scientists today research the Earth to find solutions to our problems. They are trying to imitate how things happen or respond to have a version fit for humans. Just like studying deep sea life to find cures for cancer.

Who knows "they" will study those zombie ants.

Oops I included a link in my post I'll summarize – Basically guys – DONT BE SCARED OF CORDYCEPS Cordyceps is a powerful health tonic that can reverse the ravages of a modern western diet as well as EMF. The same genetic intelligence that allows it to take over an insect is what allows it to intelligently stimulate your body back to equilibrium It relaxes blood vessels, improves blood quality, strengthens and regenerates the heart, encourages muscle growth, speeds up the metabolism, modulates the immune system, improves your total body PH level, regulates the entire endocrine system (chakras) including the pineal gland, reduces stress, and is a powerful sexual tonic. Phew, the benefits of cordyceps are extensive. Cordyceps is the umbrella term for the fungi, of which there is one for every insect. One for ants, one for caterpillers, etc I noticed that VC had a great article about herbs… Read more »

Cordyceps can be taken as a tonic herb for your health, LOOK INTO IT

i like the comparison of the two! gaga is controlled and so is the ant , great thinking. very intresesting.


I have a documentary where they adress it. It's BBC's Jungle or something like that, they actually say in the video that the "Ophiocordyceps camponoti-balzani" virus is designed to concentrate on every specie individually. It hits anything, all sort of insects. It keeps the balance in the species population, the bigger the population, the bigger the risc of getting the virus.

Incredible how nature works.

There's quite a few Fungi and bacteria that take over another animal's brain and makes them do what they normally wouldn't do.


Probably the most intriguing is the bacteria that takes over a mouse's brain and make them turn horny over cat urine. Supposedly this bug infects humans, too; and with unusual results.

there was something like this in the planet earth documentary… the parasite takes over the brain of the bug and it trips out then dies, and a huge growth comes out from the brain. anyone remember? loved the comparison to gaga, hilarious.

1st- This made my skin crawl.

2nd- I scrollded down, saw Gaga and cracked.

3rd- Kind of like the way Willow Smith whispers a secret in the baby's ear in her new video !

LOL that's mad. gaga's got brain fungus

Omg, rotflmmfao! That was soooo funny. Speaking of the Lady drone, anyone else hear about her ypcoming concerts going to contain the preserved bodies from the "Bodies In Motion" exhibit? Kinda freaky, really eff-ing freaky!

@Shane, I did read about her concert going to have those dead corpses on stage! I think I read it here in the UK to be honest… How sick does one have to be to use actual corpses for shock value and to get a rise out of people? I remember a group of my friends and myself thinking how unusual & strange to preserve human beings & "tour" them throughout the world for entertainment. Maybe they were originally used as some type of "ritual" and planned for this exact purpose…. I mean how many people will be present at her concert "worshiping" her and all that energy in the same arena as those bodies? Its got to make some people wonder…..

lool, I like the comparison

RESIDENT EVIL!!!!-LOL joking, lady gaga is the equivalent of a zombie puppet, so that crap that sitting on her head in that picture suites her quiet well.

when i saw the lady gaga pic i burst out laughing!!!

ive heard of this ant thing and fungus a long time ago.. very interesting

No, Lady GaGa isn't a zombie. She's well aware of what she's doing & representing.

If you look into it, it's quite blatant. Infact, I personally believe she was raised to do this sort of stuff; her father is definitely a Freemason, I have a friend that's personally met her father & told me that he was wearing a Freemason ring.

This is the apartment which she grew up in since the age of 7: http://thepythian.com/
"In 1993 when Stefani [Lady GaGa] was seven years old, her parents Joe and Cindy purchased an apartment at The Pythian Condominiums. "

Just press "photo album" & you'll see the symbols.

Crazy sheeeit…

Well now we know for sure that the much-hyped near future zombie apocalypse will be fungal, not viral or magical. Screw you, Resident Evil franchise.

I shitted on my pants when saw lady gagas pic


I believe they call it the television, internet, mass media, news, songs, weapons, governments, and other people.

Now, you can be the fungus, and all will be well.

"There is nothing good or bad but thinking that makes it so."

Certainly LadyGaga is a fool. What is even more disturbing, there are millions who adore that thing and pay their hard earned money to buy her music and attend her concerts.

HEY VC AND PPL – I was gunna post this on the EARTHQUAKE post but i will put it here now worth checking out …

The AMazing 11 / 11 Facts – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NKES-x9bexs Incredible vid greta info form the same guy (Rik Clay) who put out the 2012 olympics info.

Must watch for sure. peace


He killed himself. Regard him as a warning. He dealt too much with all this occult stuff. People who read VC's downloadable books and are not Christians also have to be careful not to get too much drawn in, because you become a victim of the dark shadows that you can see in Gaga's Telephone video.

Define non-Christian for me.

Anyone not accepting Jesus as their personal Lord and saviour.

Nomenclature is very important, and one should look back at the name of the fungus itself… "Ophiocordyceps camponoti-balzani" What I would like to point out is the "Ophi" which means snake/serpent. In recent news, the most ardent memory that will be stricken will be the "Ophiucus" constellation that was revered and "added" to our scopes. Vigilant, this article was dated when? I have read the same information over a year ago somewhere, and I was just wondering if National Geographic added this to their "dated" knowledge with an obvious purpose. It's all semantics. As far as the "Lady" is concerned and her "hats", you must understand its not a fashion statement, either for the occult or herself. Props to her. For example, a person is to stand underneath electrical wires upon a plateau, and they are the "tallest" structure there (the person), they are the conduit to whatever the manifestations… Read more »

i feel like your message has alot of thoughts and ideas coming through but i cant seem to understand wot it is your trying to say..i cant seem to follow..so please break down ur post into lay mans terms..i really feel like your onto something with your post and its very relevant..but as i said i cant seem to follow it..please break it down so someone like me can understand ur points..thank you x

Thank you for your honesty and your lines of respect, and I shall try again… but remember this; "Someone like me" I am just that. It's just words that have to be rearranged I guess. You are no layman my friend, this knowledge was as new to me as it is to you at the moment. I'll work with the Lady Gaga tidbit of information as I think this is most pertinent, if you would like further information on the rest, I'll be glad to help. People that delve into the esoteric knowledge or work with "unseen" forces are aware of the fact that is a matter of "energetic" nature, elemental "forces", deities worship, rituals, sacrifices, etc. In history, you will find references to "Arcanum", and further along you find more and more "divisions" onto which people invested their "energy/time" into and created these other avenues of pursuit. This energy… Read more »

HAHAHAH! LOVE the picture comparison!

Wow…just wow…


wow…that pic the end was completely unexpected lol! but its so true…

LMAO 😀 but this is creeping me out as well, hehe…

🙂 Ha ha ha ha! I loved the punchline! 😀

Gaga is infected.

Well… at least an ant zombie horde would be a little easier to battle… I hope.

Wow, what a shocker…lol.

Totally the SAME thing….xD



As far as Gaga is concerned, it's safe to say that no one in their right mind would wear what she wears! Brain fungus sure makes the meat dress look better! : P

Actually i know alot of people who 'worship' gaga and they will do/wear whatever she does.

So don't be surprised if u see a bunch people on the streets wearing hideous gaga bullshit

"Same thing" LOL

I said before in one of my articles, too, that her handler/bodyguard dude always looks pretty dissociative and zombie-like. What do you all think?? lol
