how do you think the virus "works"?

I think it works like this:
the virus is a toxin that is "stored" in the brain and the virus is only activated when you die IF the brain doesn't have much damage because it's very delicate.
the bite just makes you sick and kills you off with that being said: it leaves no damage on the brain and is useful for the virus to activate.

how do you think it "works"

  • I don't know probably something very complicated and stuff.

  • Magic. That was the point of the CDC episode. Jenner studied the zombies with SOTA equipment and found nothing.

    (Yes, I know it doesn't happen in the comics, but I state it because the show means to clearer spell out what was previously only hinted at.)

    I thought he wasn't a real scientist? Didn't he said his wife was and that's why she should have lived and he should have died?

  • I've had my own silly little explanation of it for a while...

    I thought it was a sort of parasite that takes control of the human brain, using the body to seek out food(flesh) for nutrients or what-have-you to nourish itself. On it's own, it's not strong enough to forcefully overtake the brain when it's already in use(living hosts) but can freely utilize it when the host has died.

    As for the bite, i never really thought that part out much, but figured it somehow gave the parasite an "adrenaline boost" of sorts so it becomes strong enough to steal control of the brain from the living host, thus causing death.

    Well...i was never was the best at coming up with this kind of stuff. :rolleyes:

    He's cited as a doctor in the wiki. His wife was the lead scientist. Even so, there was at least one doctor looking for a cause of the reanimation. Nothing was ever found.

    Maaaaaagic!

  • I just want to know how everyone just woke up one day and unknowingly had a virus in their brain ready to sprout when they die O_O

    A strong airborne virus can spread pretty quickly.

    I agree with TheNNerdGamer, I don't think zombie bites and the zombie virus are actually related at all. Zombie bites just happen to be lethal, allowing the virus to do its work.

  • The "virus" Is a parasitic toxin that feeds on flesh and mutates the brain and causes cell diffusion in order for a more suitable environment to create a self sufficient human analog to spread the toxin from one body to another, in the form of either the toxin entering the bloodstream, or the toxin entering the human body through the air after its inevitable death.
