A More Reasonable Explanation For a Peculiar Piece of Mucoid Plaque I Once Eliminated

Sometime after that bizarre experience I had with apple juice, I tried Richard Anderson's cleansing program . Although it was slow and frustrating, I managed to remove substantial chunks of mucoid plaque. Here is a peculiar one that I eliminated:
I'm looking at this and thinking that both sides don't know what they are talking about — I don't see anything in the photo that looks like feces, and you know as well as I that neither psyllium nor bentonite comes out looking like that. Look how black it is. Richard Anderson thinks the colors you see there has something to do with bile.[1] I have a more reasonable explanation I think.

That black stuff, I submit to you, is not black bile, one of the four humors of the body; it is liquified eschar, and it's mixed in with mucus and exudate. Necrotic tissue does in fact liquefy and mix in with exudate.[2] And experiments have shown that when albumin, a major component of exudate, is mixed in with mucus, it forms mucin-albumin complexes that is substantially more viscous than mucus or albumin alone [3] — that's what that amber jelly-like material on the left is I think. Now Forstner demonstrated that when a mucus-albumin mixture is exposed to an acidic pH (4.5 or lower), it forms into a dense white precipitate.[4] I'm guessing that's what all this white stuff might be:
What you see there is an endoscopy of a colon with acute ischemic colitis.[5] See that small black area on the right? I'm thinking that's an area at which enzymes, produced during active inflammation, dissolved away the mucus-exudate mixture that was covering up the liquified eschar underneath. If degration of the mucus-exudate mixture were to continue, I believe more of the liquified eschar (which itself is mixed in with mucus and exudate) will be revealed. Eventually, it could rehydrate and swell up to many times its own size and slough away from the mucosa resulting in a peculiar elimination such as the one I once eliminated.

Liquefied necrotic tissue occurs most often as a result of enzymatic or autolytic debridement."
