Here is a star worm for this #trippythursday by @blacklux
Here we have the writhing innards of a semi translucent star worm.
They start out as simple celled organisms in the outer layers of the ionosphere.
As they mature, their shape becomes more aerodynamic so they can bounce between different layers of the earth's atmosphere.
At this stage they hang around in the clouds harvesting moisture to puff themselves up before descending to earth.
Now it is ready to divebomb to ground level hoping to hit some sort of living organism so it can burrow into their skin as a parasite.
Once inside a host it will begin rewiring the brain of the host compelling them to climb high mountains or go skydiving. Once the host goes into a higher altitude to worm's eggs will be released out of every pore of the host. The host rarely survives this process. Beware the skydivers and mountain climbers... they may be carriers.
