You'd think that the important lessons learned concerning the true nature of Endurium would suggest a much more cautious and thoughtful approach here.

Life has spent the past billennia chewing on itself, probing each and every possible chink of weakness.  No way that some ancient bit of life survives today's monkeypox world.

"An environmental organism that has never seen a human is not going to have the mechanism to get inside of us and cause disease,"

It doesn't need to provide a mechanism. Inhale it or get it in your eye and it is inside you. Then it is simply a matter of whether or not it finds what it needs to survive and multiply there and what side effects that has on us.

If only we had some sort of system designed to destroy foreign organisms and protect us.

Grant us immunity. Immune to foreign organisms.

A system to that.

"An environmental organism that has never seen a human is not going to have the mechanism to get inside of us and cause disease," she said. "So I personally, from a science perspective, have no fear of that."

Thank the FSM that diseases have never jumped from another species to humans.  Hasn't every new disease we get never seen a human until it has?
