Cytosis

Eutrophication and phosphorylated biodiversity

In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang (also yin–yang or yin yang, 陰陽 yīnyáng “dark–bright”) describe how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. Last night I dreamed that someone added color to this symbol and represented it as a spinning disk (in a publication from the Nature publishing group).  The specifics of the dream helped me…

Pheromones biophysically constrain RNA-mediated biodiversity (1)

Elaine Morgan on paradigm shifts. Her view of the pseudoscientific nonsense touted by neo-Darwinian theorists and “Big Bang” cosmologists is humorous and she accurately represents what’s been happening to me and others like me for the past two decades. It’s what we expect. It’s your choice to keep laughing about it. See for comparison: Functional screening in human cardiac organoids reveals a metabolic mechanism for cardiomyocyte cell cycle arrest Reported as: Scientists have identified the metabolic pathway associated with heart…

From base editing to RNA editing (2)

Summary: The link from the creation of the sun’s anti-entropic virucidal energy and the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction to fixation of RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions in the organized genomes of all living genera is all that is required to claim adaptation for comparison to Koonin’s moronic assertion that the amino acid composition of proteins varies because the composition evolved. Digital reconstruction of the Ceprano calvarium (Italy), and implications for its interpretation A “fresh” (i.e., not yet “fossil”) bone can be…

Virulence: Out of stock

Virulence: An Infectious Card Game This product is currently out of stock and is on backorder. For comparison, pre-orders of “Cytosis: A Cell Biology Board Game”  are being shipped this month, and the “board game” adds “depth” to what could already have been learned from the “card game.” I ordered two cases of “Cytosis.” Players start with the creation of energy and link ATP from the creation of RNA to the creation of all biophysically constrained life on Earth. Players…

Until death: Virus-driven failure of multisensory integration (3)

What Your Nose Knows: Sense of Smell and Your Health August 2016 What the Nose Knows May Affect Your Brain Health October 2017 Doty’s research found a strong connection between low scores on a 40-item smell test and damage to this area of the brain. His recent article in The Lancet outlines possible ways that sense of smell and overall brain health could be linked and “may be the genesis of many neurodegenerative diseases. See: ”Olfactory dysfunction in neurodegenerative diseases:…

Biophysically constrained intelligence vs human idiocy

Microbes Mind Forum Research on origins, evolution, and syntheses of life How did self-organization and evolution give rise to complex, life-like systems and how can these dynamics inform our futures? How can we move beyond the Tragedy of the Commons as a necessary outcome of evolutionary dynamics to evolve toward sustainable futures, channeled by constraints that unleash innovative potential, designing multi-agent, problem-solving systems. Eshel Ben-Jacob is Professor of Physics of Complex Systems and holds the Maguy-Glass Chair in Physics at…

Until death: Virus-driven failure of multisensory integration (1)

Martha McClintock‘s works inspired my works. Publication of “The Scent of Eros: Mysteries of Odor Human Sexualty” (1995) led Denise Chen to study olfaction and pheromones. See for example: Encoding human sexual chemosensory cues in the orbitofrontal and fusiform cortices. Her student, Wen Zhou, returned to China and she is the senior author of Olfaction Warps Visual Time Perception. Since 1995, all accurate representations of how foraging behavior links food odors and pheromones from feedback loops to sexual reproduction and…

Predicting who wins the 2017 Nobel Prizes (6)

I failed to correctly predict who would win this year’s Nobel Prize in Chemistry, but there is still hope for my prediction of who will win the Nobel Peace Prize. I thought Lynn Zechiedrich would win for linking cryo-EM to the Structural diversity of supercoiled DNA Our cryo-ET, biochemical, and computational studies show the astounding versatility and dynamism of DNA depending on the degree of supercoiling. DNA simultaneously exists in a largely inactive B-form with bases tucked in and protected…

Predicting who wins the 2017 Nobel Prizes (5)

Summary: If he was not still dead, the 1965 Nobel Laureate, Richard P. Feynman might claim that this year’s Physics Prize was awarded for “human idiocy.” Nobel Prize in Physics Awarded to LIGO Black Hole Researchers Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity, pronounced in 1916, suggested that matter and energy would warp the geometry of space-time the way a heavy sleeper sags a mattress, producing the effect we call gravity. His equations described a universe in which space and time were…

For God and Country

Dispelling the ignorance of theorists

American Legion Riders (Riding for God and Country on 9/9/17) Summary: The highest-order of energy-dependent pre-assembly of respiratory chain complexes allows mitochondria to respond to energy-requiring conditions. There is no such thing as the emergence of energy, self-assembly, self-organization or any other pseudoscientific nonsense touted by theorists. Their theories exemplify what Richard P. Feynman referred to as “human idiocy.” That is why I refer to theorists who argue with me as “biologically uninformed science idiots.” Friends sometimes tell me I…
