Until death: Virus-driven failure of multisensory integration (2)

Summary: The virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA is clearly linked to frontotemporal dementia (FTD) by altered language, personality, behavior, cognition and motor function. What causes FTD? If the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA causes all pathology, I would expect to find a link from microRNAs to the pathology and to the effective treatment. The social and economic burden of frontotemporal degeneration Reported as: Study reveals staggering economic burden of dementia in younger people Frontotemporal degeneration (FTD) accounts for 20 to…

Predicting who wins the 2017 Nobel Prizes (7)

Conclusion: The biggest threat to humanity is not the “Big Bang” theory of creation or the “Big Bang” theory of how life on Earth might end after an explosion of cosmic proportions. The biggest threat has always been “human idiocy.” 2017 Nobel Peace Prize Awarded to International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons “for its work to draw attention to the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons and for its ground-breaking efforts to achieve a treaty-based prohibition of…

Sci-Hub vs limits on the dissemination of information

The ideology of “Americanism” is not consistent with the tactics of academics and politicians that constrain release of accurate information about  biologically-based cause and effect. …Americanism is an ideology, or belief in devotion, loyalty, or allegiance to the United States of America, or to its flag, traditions, customs, culture, symbols, institutions, or form of government.[2] In the words of Theodore Roosevelt, “Americanism is a question of spirit, conviction, and purpose, not of creed or birthplace.”[3] Americanism has two different meanings.…

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

Summary: All serious scientists know that all epigenetic diversity is food energy-dependent and biophysically constrained by the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction. See for comparison: Jay R. Feierman: “Variation is not nutrient availability and the something that is doing the selecting is not the individual organism. A feature of an educated person is to realize what they do not know. Sadly, you don’t know that you have an incorrect understanding [of] Darwinian biological evolution.” A Bacterial Messenger Molecule Extends Healthspan …indole,…

The Origin of Information (4)

Summary: Others have learned that the energy in a hydrogen atom must be linked to all biodiversity on Earth. The question is: “Where did the energy in the hydrogen atom come from?” See: The Origin of Information (3) Finally, someone is asking questions that can be summarized in one question (see below). Until now, on the International Society for Human Ethology’s Yahoo group, and elsewhere, the moderator: Jay R. Feierman has prevented the dissemination of accurate information on this topic.…

Can protein folding chemistry be understood by theorists?

Excerpt: The researchers believe their discovery dovetails with their research on how tumor viruses and cancer mutations change a cell’s DNA structure and organization to cause uncontrolled cell growth. Aye group discovers avenue for precision cancer treatment One challenge is that multiple variations, or isoforms, of the same protein can all catalyze the same cellular function, “but the nuances of biology rest in how individual isoforms are regulated,” Aye said. Natural selection for energy-dependent codon optimality regulates the creation of…

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…

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)…

Richard P. Feynman refuted theistic evolution

Summary: Among other delightful examples of his expertise in physics, Feynman presciently linked natural selection for energy-dependent codon optimality from food energy-dependent pheromone-controlled biophysically constrained chromosomal rearrangements to healthy longevity. He also linked the radiation-induced theft of quantized energy to mutations in phages via amino acids that increase the virulence of the viruses. Updated information is presented in the context of refutations by many others who might otherwise claim to believe in theistic evolution. The miR-23a~27a~24-2 microRNA cluster buffers transcription…

Epigenetic effects of stress by Bruce McEwen (1)

A rendering of how changes in an electron’s motion (bottom view) alter the scattering of light (top view), as measured in a new experiment that scattered more than 500 photons of light from a single electron. Previous experiments had managed to scatter no more than a few photons at a time. Credit: Extreme Light Laboratory|University of Nebraska-Lincoln Summary: In the early 1990’s, Bruce McEwen inspired my life’s works, which link the epigenetic effects of nutrient-stress and/or social stress to the fact…
