Eating electrons and excreting degraded energy

Summary: The tenacity of energy-dependent life extends from quantum physics to quantum souls via what is known about the birds and the bees (and bacteria). Simply put, if they don’t eat, they die. Neuroscience—and the new weapons of the mind Dietary modification also shows increasing promise for the exogenous manipulation of neurotransmitter signaling. Recent research into the effects on brain chemistry of the microbiome—the bacterial flora located in the human gut traditionally thought to aid in digestion—shows significant potential for…

Natural selection for racism and all pathology

Why is natural selection hard to grasp? It is not what you think…. …human cognitive tendencies interfere more with deep understanding of how natural selection works. Simply put, our intelligence and teleological reasoning interferes with the teaching of pseudoscientific nonsense. The nonsense does not place Darwin’s “conditions of life” before natural selection for reproductive fitness. Natural selection is food energy-dependent and pheromone-controlled in the context of biophysically constrained viral latency. See for comparison: The vibrational theory of olfaction for the…

Lethal virus kills 5 billion people?

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…

Conserved biophotonic emissions

Human high intelligence is involved in spectral redshift of biophotonic activities in the brain The tendency of the spectral redshift of glutamate-induced biophotonic emissions in this study is in the order of frog, mouse, chicken, pig, monkey, and human, which is almost consistent with the phylogenetic tree. Although the present imaging technique could not distinguish and determine what types of neurons emit what types of spectral biophotons or whether a neuron or type of neurons emit different spectral biophotons, we…

Antithetical conclusions (4)

Evidence for sex-specific genetic architectures across a spectrum of human complex traits …will need to disentangle whether sex genetic heterogeneity may arise as a consequence of interactions with genetic loci located on the sex chromosomes, differences in gene control due to differences in the sex-specific cellular environment, or more general differences in environmental exposures between the sexes. Nutrient energy-dependent pheromone-controlled sex differences in the cell types of species from yeasts to humans link changes in the microRNA/messenger RNA balance and…

Biophysically constrained cell type differentiation

Intrinsic limits to gene regulation by global crosstalk Excerpt: A paradigmatic example is that of the aminoacyl transfer RNA synthetase1, which uses kinetic proofreading2 to load appropriate amino acids onto matching tRNAs. This and other examples—including DNA replication, ligand sensing3, protein–protein interactions4,5,6,7,8,9, recognition events in the immune system10,11 and molecular self-assembly12—indicate that biology places a large premium on the reduction of unintended ‘crosstalk’, a generic term that encompasses all potentially disruptive processes due to reactions between non-cognate substrates. Reported as:…

Biophotonics, glycobiology, quantized biodiversity (2)

From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior (1996) In our section on Molecular epigenetics, we wrote: Small intranuclear proteins also participate in generating alternative splicing techniques of pre-mRNA and, by this mechanism, contribute to sexual differentiation in at least two species, Drosophila melanogaster and Caenorhabditis elegans (Adler and Hajduk, 1994; de Bono, Zarkower, and Hodgkin, 1995; Ge, Zuo, and Manley, 1991; Green, 1991; Parkhurst and Meneely, 1994; Wilkins, 1995; Wolfner, 1988). That similar proteins perform functions in humans suggests the possibility…
