Ok you are going to have to be more specific as to what you call an antigen
Dictionary.com defines an antigen as, "a toxin or other foreign substance which induces an immune response in the body, especially the production of antibodies."
Clearly Type 0 blood has a foundational quality that all bodies see as self, rather then it not having antigens on its surface
If that was true, then putting type O blood in a person who has type A blood would produce an immune response because the O blood doesn't have the "foundational quality that all bodies see as self". That isn't what happens, though.
Not necessarily, a virus would have to mimic a Typo 0 blood cell membrane.
In order to do that, they would have to get rid of their spike proteins and therefore render themselves non-infectious.
So clearly a cell wall of a virus would be seen as an antigen
I don't see how you've made that case.
the surface of a cell is also an antigen if the body doesnt recognize it as self.
That's the big "if". I don't know if a viral membrane sans the spike proteins trigger an immune response or not.
