Wicked Zombies

YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE...MAYBE TWICE!

Wow, I haven’t posted anything in a really long time. College takes up 99, if not 100% of my time, frankly. But today I couldn’t help but make a comment on something. See, today in histology class, we were discussing the gastrointestinal tract, focusing on the stomach at the point in time when I gained this piece of information (surprised I gained anything from that class). we pointed out that within the layers of the stomach wall, there are two nerve plexuses: the submucosal nerve plexus and the myenteric nerve plexus, that send and receive impulses from the muscles of the stomach wall. Then, the lecturer said that the gastric nervous system, which I just very briefly described, has been recently found to work independent of the central nervous system/brain. I immediately wrote that down, because the first thing that came to mind was zombies. We have already theorized that zombies won’t have brain function, yet still they have the ability to attack and eat other people. but we never tried to understand why that is. Maybe I found the answer in class today. The gastric nervous system would still have function in zombies, giving them their ability to continuously eat (flesh) by receiving, maybe, hunger impulses or something. Yeah, this hypothesis is still shaky, but it’s just something that crossed my mind. Kinda valid, I’d say.

Gotta get back to studying. Oh, vet school.

good point. but when something like a zombie is put into overdrive so to speak. i dont think the nourishment is the thing. i cant help but feel satisfying the urge is the key. that need to feed being stuck in hungry mode. and in cases like that. i think one of two things still remains a probability.

1) the stomach fills to the point of bursting.

or

2) what is in the stomach is forced through the intestinal tract until is forced out the only way it can go. through the colon and out.

either way. being stuck in "eat" mode. the law of physics must still apply. what goes in. must come out some way or another.

That's pretty intense. But one problem: the intestines are run but the autonomic nervous system, basically rooted from the brain and to the dorsal root ganglia (of the spinal cord) so after stomach digestion of proteins, what happens next? How do nutreints get absorbed if the next organ in line cannot function?

Not-Dead Undead Hypothesis

Comment by KOMRAD RHINO☭ on September 24, 2013 at 8:16pm
After reading this. A part of me can't help but think that they together would be a reasonable driving force. That primitive urge to eat along with the stomach being stuck in "eat" mode if you will. Take a natural predator like a lion and do this to it while alive and you would have a more then ravenous predator. Now do this with a reanimated corps with little to no sense of pain and look at what you got. The modern zombie. A ravenous predator with all the basic instinct of a human being with some residual memory of what he was, where his prey gathers in mass groups, ect. Practically the perfect predator to the ultimate predator. Man.

Omg I loved that movie. I think BUB was the best character, but I don't like how the doc got killed though. But yeah, I mean, its a vague hypothesis, but somehow it made sense in my head. Zombies have to have some sort of digestive ability to wanna continue eating.

in a lot of ways. it does make sense. if the brain is stuck in "eat" mode. then if the stomach has its own functions outside the brain. that may also be a driving force as well.

This has always baffled me about the undead why do they have the need to feed if their organs are not functional? This is why we need doctors like you Cher to test the hypothesis and get some scientific evidence to back up information we are being given.

i know i have read a lot of stuff that says that the stomach and intestines no longer function. hence ingested flesh either gets pushed through the intestines by flesh newly eaten. or the stomach explodes from over eating. this however does put a new light on things though. because if it has its own nervous system that is independent of the brain. it could easily be stuck in "eat" mode. hence turning the reanimate into the ravenous killer we all know today. sort of puts me in mind of Dr. Logan and his work. he had a zombie where he had totally disconnected the internal organs yet it still had the desire to eat. what my take is (now that you revealed this info) on this is one question. "Can you tame a zombie by removing the digestive system entirely?" if you could. this would give light to a whole new work force (smelly but usable). and if left in a zombie, a whole new fighting force. a zombie tamed by just simply removing the digestive system could have tons of ramifications. without the desire to eat. one can train them to do things like Logan trained BUB. for instance train them to go in and wipe out other zombies without risk to living troops. train them to answer to one handler like guard dogs or drug dogs. one handler. one zombie. the possibilities are endless.

"Z" day

In all actuality, when the time comes where we would have to defend ourselves against any sort of undead creature, I truly believe that our best bet would be to post on this page as often as we can so as to find any and all survivors. As well I will be posted on an island (we haven't been shown that zombies can in fact swim) with a way back to the mainland, plenty of food and water, and internet to boot. If there is anyone interested in joining me message me for the coordinates within the…
