Question...[edit source]

Is geostigma ment to represent aids? They just seem so similar. This is not a joke.

Why do you think it represents AIDS? Most Geostigma victims are children, and that's not really the case with AIDS is it.Keltainentoukokuu 17:21, August 3, 2011 (UTC)
I think it was a reference to the Black Plague, which spread like wildfire in Europe much like Geostigma spread in their world. The only difference is that Geostigma wasn't spread from contact with an infected person. And it is possible to live a full life with AIDS, while Geostigma kills you pretty quickly. Ambiesushi!

Did some research Keltanie, a lot of the AIDS victims in Africa are young children who got it from their mothers. AmbieSushi 19:41, November 7, 2011 (UTC)

The Cetra Virus[edit source]

Though it's-as far as I know-not given any detail, could Geostigma be a similar thing the Virus that Ifalna explained was what killed the Cetra in the video logs of Gast's in Icicle Inn?

There's no evidence that Holy was summoned or that Jenova managed to contamine the Lifestream before the events of FFVII. So we can't be sure. - Henryacores^ 17:38, November 7, 2011 (UTC)
The Cetra virus was probably similar to how Angeal and Genesis can "contaminate" other beings and make them into their copies in Crisis Core.Keltainentoukokuu 18:01, November 7, 2011 (UTC)
Ilfana was referring to Jenova's copying abilities as the virus. Geostigma is caused by its cells trying to perform the Reunion. So Keltaine was right. AmbieSushi 19:40, November 7, 2011 (UTC)

Hallucinations and seizures[edit source]

Cloud Strife also experiences hallucinations and seizures, 
but it is unknown if this is caused by his Geostigma or not, 
as none of the other victims are shown to have these symptoms.

I think Denzel has "hallucinations and seizures" in Advent Children Complete. BastionMonk (talk) 14:10, August 17, 2013 (UTC)

I think so too. Plus Cloud tends to clutch on his arm when he has those seizures, implying it has something to do with his Geostigma.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 15:38, August 17, 2013 (UTC)
