ok so these things (click on the pictures plz theyre smushed)

i saw it in my biology textbook and they looked really familiar, and that was because they were in kindergarten

these things are called bacteriophage. its kind of a virus that infect and replicate inside bacteria basically, and it usually causes their disintegration. this sounds kinda bad, except they were used as an antibiotic for a while and they also help stop the spread of disease. 

tl;dr these may not be what made gems from earth, but maybe what helped stop them

if the banging noise at the end of the episode ‘on the run’ was one of these turning back on, then maybe that means that a bad gem was beginning to form again

not sure tho so if anyone wants to add onto this go ahead

Do you know kyrieanne? If so you should go wish her a happy birthday! Because she is fantastic and brilliant and just one of the best people I know. Also she and Anne Shirley share a birthday. How perfect is that?
