Host-derived creation of all pathology (1 of 2)

Hunter-gatherers’ seasonal gut-microbe diversity loss echoes our permanent one For more than 15 million years, human beings have co-evolved with thousands of microbial species… Nothing known to serious scientists support ridiculous claims about 15 million years. See for comparison: Natural Selection on the Olfactory Receptor Gene Family in Humans and Chimpanzees See also: Nothing in Biology Makes Any Sense Except in the Light of Evolution …the so-called alpha chains of hemoglobin have identical sequences of amino acids in man and…

Pseudoscientists hate what science explains! (3)

See also: Pseudoscientists hate what science explains (2) Summary: In addition to germline silencing via information transfer to the physical landscape of supercoiled DNA, multicopy transgene arrays are linked from changes in the microRNA/messenger RNA balance to variation in their somatic expression level. That fact helps to establish the difference between healthy longevity and pathology across generations. Problems with DNA replication can cause epigenetic changes that may be inherited for several generations My summary: The polycomb repressive complex 2, additional…

Energy and neural plasticity

Summary: Food energy is required because proteins do not create themselves and virus-driven energy theft causes the degradation of messenger RNA in all living genera. See for comparison: Neural plasticity wanes with age, but increasing the protein Arc—abundant earlier in life—in the visual cortex of mice can fend off this decline. The restoration of neural plasticity requires the food energy-dependent pheromone-controlled de novo creation of genes. For example, see: Natural Selection on the Olfactory Receptor Gene Family in Humans and Chimpanzees Desperate…

Robert Sapolsky’s legacy of atheistic pseudoscientific nonsense

Summary: Not only does everything known to serious scientists about energy link RNA synthesis to life, everything McEwen and others have published links nutrient stress and/or social stress to the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA and all pathology. As moderator of the International Society for Human Ethology (ISHE), a not-for-profit scientific organization that consistently touts pseudoscientific nonsense in the context of neo-Darwinian evolution, Jay R. Feierman’s attacks on the works of serous scientists are increasing in frequency and in magnitude.…

Measuring energy vs human idiocy (social science)

Summary: The “… universal applicability for determination of various targets such as metal ions, miRNAs, DNAs and proteins…” is the key to understanding the differences in the energy-dependent assembly of cell types with fixed amino acid substitutions that link natural selection for energy-dependent changes in base pairs from atoms to ecosystems in all living genera. Richard Feynman complains about all the different units that are used to measure the single concept of Energy in this snippet  from one of his…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (10)

Summary: The entire evolution of the microbial world and the virus world, and the interaction between microbes and viruses and other life forms have been left out of the Modern Synthesis…— Eugene Koonin My comment: Viruses are not life forms. They steal the quantized energy that links sunlight to viral latency in the context of everything known to all serious scientists about the fact that Feedback loops link odor and pheromone signaling with reproduction See for comparison: Olfaction Warps Visual…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (8)

Summary: The role of vitamin C in the treatment of pain: new insights links what is known about the “superfood” Spirulina (blue-green algae), which is grown in marine and freshwater environments, to the stability of all organized genomes via its biological activities, such as antioxidant, anti-diabetic, cholesterol-controlling and insulin resistance effects. The biological activities are energy-dependent and they link the anti-entropic virucidal energy of sunlight to all biodiversity via the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction and microRNAs in plants and animals.…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (3)

See first: Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (2) Emily Balskus Pins Down the Chemistry and Metabolism of Human Microbiomes Summary: The chemistry and metabolism of all microbiomes is food energy-dependent and pheromone-controlled via the physiology of reproduction. See: Feedback loops link odor and pheromone signaling with reproduction My comment to The Scientist: …trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline (Hyp) dehydratase, a newly discovered member of an abundant family of proteins, produced by gut bacteria, known as the glycyl radical enzymes, helps in metabolizing trans-Hyp, an…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (2)

Summary: The mind does not exist in nature. It is a manifestation of how ecological variation must be linked to the creation of food energy-dependent pheromone-controlled ecological adaptations. Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (1) The energy-dependent de novo creation of all receptors is biophysically constrained. See: Channel opening and gating mechanism in AMPA-subtype glutamate receptors This was reported as: Scientists capture first image of major brain receptor in action Defects in glutamate receptors, or the processes they mediate, are implicated…

Cell type assembly and the space-time continuum

Summary: The time to adopt energy-dependent cell type assembly as the unit of cognition was in 1944, when Schrodinger published “What is Life.” By the time Roger Penrose made his comment in the reprint edition, everyone else was too late. Penrose wrote: “How often do we still hear that quantum effects can have little relevance in the study of biology, or even that we eat food in order to gain energy?” (Roger Penrose 8 August 1991) See: Time (and space)…

  • What Darwin proved: there’s no such thing as a species
    GENETICS As Animals Mingle, a Baffling Genetic Barrier A short stretch of DNA is challenging what it means to be a species. By: Emily Singer August 5, 2014 Excerpt: “Scientists have dubbed such regions of the genome “islands of speciation.” The persistence of such islands is a phenomenon that has been observed in a variety of […]
