In 1979 and based on some inferred features of ‘slow’ viruses and lentiviruses, we proposed the DNA must be the repository of long-term memories in living systems (LTM)… particularly in brain and the immune system (Smith, 1979). Our analyses suggested that a priori changes from adenine*thymine-rich regions to guanine*cytosine-richer regions in non-proteomic regions of the genome then give rise to a posteriori byproducts comprising elements of LTM (e.g., immunoglobulins, unique T-cell receptors, odorant receptors, and neural networks; Smith, 1979; Smith, 2003a). Because slow viruses and lentiviruses contribute to dementia in brain, we also inferred that an analogous ’immune dementia’ could be anticipated, and would be associated with dysfunctions in the immune system (Smith, 1979; cf. Sigurdsson, 1954a; Sigurdsson. 1954b; Sigurdsson, 1954c). We subsequently reported that HIV/AIDS is one manifestation of the anticipated immune dementia (Smith, 1984).
Our investigations of HIV and AIDS, and their implications for LTM, then led to the discovery of autotoxicity, autotoxicity and context-specificity (Smith, 1983; Smith, 1984). Autotoxicity, which comprises transmissible and infectious non-nucleic-acid cellular substituents and which subsumes all prions, is known to affect brain and mind.
Autovirulence comprises transmissible and infectious virus secondary small RNA particles that often contribute to ‘hit-and-run’ and ‘beneath-the-radar’ epigenetic phenomena and syndromes. Stress-activated autovirulence (e.g., associated with Epstein-Barr virus [EBV] and some adenoviruses) is implicated in the etiologies of many genetic, epigenetic and epigenomic phenomena (Smith, 2003b; Fisher, 2009). These include: autoimmune disorders; chronic fatigue syndrome; molecular mimicry; schizophrenia; autism spectrum disorders (ASD); schizophrenia; aneuploidies and other congenital conditions; de novo mutations; cancers; et al.
This report focuses on neuropsychiatric consequences of
autovirulence. Phenomenological observations of more than 50 cancer patients

In this presentation, I report both possibilities … along
with elements of the potential cancer 'brain-mind’. Importantly, these findings
underscore the need for the detection, assessment and management of stress in
medical and clinical professions. Our findings also reveal a need to
disambiguate among the effects of radiation therapy, chemotherapy and
autovirulence on brain and its sensorium. Finally, our findings affirm the
theoretical and experimental potential of our recently patented preliophic
moleculator invention (Smith and Shadel, 2010).
