David Hambling Can anyone explain why it was important that Patient Omega should have CJD rather than anything? I missed the significance of that.


Brett Patient Omega needed to have a disease that the special electricity would not cure. CJD fit the bill.


David Hambling I gathered that, but why would the special electricity not cure CJD in particular? I suspect King had an explanation in mind but forgot to put it in.

I'm guessing it's because it's a prion rather than a virus per se...but why would that make a difference?
