Diagram of cyclical parasitism in Babylonia involving Oosdoli urvysc, portal scorpions (Girtablullu nyctonostici), humans, and Norlian snails (Nimloidu sp.).

Fig. 2. Situation in Babylonia. (A) Maturation of Oosdoli from sporoplasmid to cnidocyst occurs in ionis astra of Girtablullu warrior guardnymphs. (a) Girtablullu sting at dusk or dawn transmits cnidocysts to panprimary human host. (B) Luxuriant invasion by Oosdoli of human blood and skin spurs a pancyclic history involving panoocysts, pansporocysts, pan-sporoblasts, and pan-sporoplasmids which mix and match promiscuously (not shown), causing morosity minus morbidity. Parsimonious thought posits Ishtar’s Hand as anti-rubotic fallout following upon natural historic doubling of parasitic cyclicity in panprimary host. (b) Transmission of Oosdoli occurs by gulping down of human scat by Nimloidu. (C) Typical ccocsc cycling of Oosdoli occurs in Nimloidu gut. (c) Consumption of Nimloidu by Girtablullu imago and micronymph transmits Oosdoli sporocysts into (D) GI tract of Girtablullu such that induction of Oosdoli sporoblasts from sporocysts is brought about. (d) Girtablullu warrior guard-nymphs subsist only on trophallaxis for which solicitation of both imaginal and micronymphal instars is stood for as commonly typical in this organism.
