Excerpted from private correspondence, and slightly edited.

As an example, if the healthy immune system really could not recognize cancer cells, we would all die rather quickly, because damaged cells in the body are always turning into tumor cells every day and being destroyed by the healthy immune system -- which first has to recognize them as foreign, of course!.  That is well-known.  Cancer gets started when -- for some reason -- the immune system QUITS recognizing the tumor cells as its own.

Two things are necessary for a cell to turn into a cancer cell: (1) damage which cannot be recovered, and (2) "promotion" -- which is not well understood at all.  All it means is that, well, the damaged cell somehow gets turned into a tumor cell.

In my view there are two main classes of promotion.  If the damage is fairly severe, it gets promoted pretty quickly (which I think is an order by the cellular control system anyway), but the cellular control system gives up on it as far as continuing to try to support it as one of its cells.  In that case, "giving up" on it is actually a labeling of the tumor cell as "foreign", so that the immune system recognizes it and destroys it.

On the other hand, the cellular control system may not give up on it as one of its own, but decides upon a more dramatic measure: to turn the cell back toward a more primeval anaerobic cell, but to continue to cherish it as its own and thus so mark it.  In that case, the immune system will NOT recognize it, and will bypass it.  That then is cancer.

The difference is in the decision and action taken by the cellular control system.

For one thing, that continuing to cherish the tumor cell as its own happens when the cellular control system reaches the end of its ability to do additional actions to try to provide for cells that are not getting enough oxygen.  Example is smoking; the real reason for the relaxation that inhaling so quickly gives is because the smoke particles entering the bloodstream in the lungs immediately interferes with the 80 or so hydrogen ions clustering around the red corpuscle (necessary for the hemoglobin to take on sufficient oxygen, which it otherwise cannot chemically do).  The entry of the smoke particles in the blood right there in the lungs produces an immediate sharp reduction in the number of ions that cluster the red cell, which in turn sharply reduces the oxygen going to the cells, by the sharp reduction of the oxygen-take-on ability of the hemoglobin.  This dramatic reduction in oxygen being furnished to the cells sets off all sorts of alarms in the cellular control system, which promptly reduces the metabolism (rate of burning oxygen) in the body, slows the heartbeat, etc. so that the cells very quickly do not NEED as much oxygen as they did.  This produces the relaxation.  It's an EMERGENCY!  EMERGENCY!  action by the cellular control system.  A 10-alarm fire, so to speak.    But excessive smoking reduces the oxygen portability even a little more, for still some hypoxia even in the relaxed body.  Over time, this also then begins to slowly damage the cells (particularly in the lung tissues).  The cellular control system does everything in its bag of tricks (relaxes the arteries so they enlarge a bit and carry more blood, etc.) over time.  If the hypoxia continues, then slowly the rate of damaged cells turning into tumor cells increases. Still, the immune system -- under orders from the cellular control system -- is recognizing the nontumor damaged cells as its own, but recognizing those that turn into tumors as "not its own" and destroying them.

Finally, in desperation to support "its" chronically damaged cells, the cellular control system resorts to a desperate strategy: it directly orders (and sends an engine which directly forces) the damaged cell to begin to turn back into an anaerobic cell (the memory of the entire history of cell development on earth is in each cell).  The first step ordered is for that cell to be broken loose (by the engine) from the central growth control. However, the cellular control system also orders the immune system to continue to recognize this new pre-anaerobic cell-- now not under central growth control -- as belonging to "self".   And it marks the tumor cell as self.

That is what really causes the immune system to stop recognizing the tumor cells as foreign!  It gets a direct order to do that. The cellular control system (studied by Popp) orders it to do so, in its last-ditch desperate attempt to continue to support "its" cherished damaged cell to which it cannot get enough oxygen no matter what heroic measures it takes, and has not done so for some time (often, years).

In the case of such a tumorous cell or group of cells still recognized as self, the tumor -- being free from central growth control -- now multiplies without being forced to limit.  So the tumor increases.  Note that the "relief from central growth control" also appears to occur in progressive stages.  So one can have a "benign" tumor which doesn't grow past some point, or one can grow slowly.  If a dramatic order down to the full release from growth control is taken by the cellular control system, then one has "malignancy" with the cells multiplying unchecked and spreading all over the body -- with the cellular control system still regarding them as "self" to be supported, and the immune system still recognizing them as "self" and not attacking them.

You can now understand the concern I have had for the increase in my hypoxia during the last year, resulting in the heart episode and continuing.   And why I was so determined to get a mycoplasma test and prove that's what it was -- interference with the oxygen-take-on ability of the red cells by chronic mycoplasma infection which I contracted in 1968 while stationed in Canada (hospitalized three times, with a major exploratory operation -- opening both the chest and the abdomen, moving all the organs around for a couple hours to aerate them -- the third time).   Now it has been proven, and so I'm finally on the regime to cure the hypoxia by slowly killing the infection inside the red cells.  As that gradually occurs over the next year, I should gradually get back up out of the hypoxia again (I'm already a little bit better), and then slowly regain the normal oxygen-take-on capability as the damaged red cells are slowly healed again.
The foregoing was in response to this observation by a correspondent:

However, the problem with carcinomas is that a healthy, vigorous immune system recognizes, through surveillance or communicator T-cells, the cancerous cell as normal. The proteins on the cancer cell membrane are endogenous. That is the problem. No time-reversal theory solves this.

Further, in a "time-reversed" normal, healthy state, the host would not produce antibodies specific to the "sleeping sickness" pathogen. If it did, the host would not contract sleeping sickness  in the first place and would be immune to it.
