Microecologically constrained viruses (3)

A former Nature editor, Philip C. Ball – whose most recent book is “How Life Works” (11/7/23) – previously stated in “Quantum common sense” 6/21/17 that “To turn quantum to classical, we don’t need a conscious mind to measure or look; we just need an environment full of stuff. With or without us, the Universe is always looking.”

I placed that into the context of a 2017 interview via a link to a song about Santa Claus: See: Quantized Energy Links Olfaction from Angstroms to Ecosystems Part 1 Jun 23, 2017 and Quantized Energy Links Olfaction from Angstroms to Ecosystems Part 2 Jun 24, 2017, which ended with this comment on his nonsense.

On 5/14/24, he published Revolutionary Genetics Research Shows RNA May Rule Our Genome

“Key insights into how such small RNAs can regulate other RNA emerged from studies in C. elegans in 1998 by molecular biologists Andrew Fire, Craig Mello and their co-workers, for which Fire and Mello were awarded the 2006 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.”

Since then, all other intelligent serious scientists have linked light-activated carbon fixation in cyanobacteria from pH-dependent protein folding chemistry to all biodiversity on Earth via a claim in McEwen et al., (1964). Dependence of RNA synthesis in isolated thymus nuclei on glycolysis, oxidative carbohydrate catabolism and a type of “oxidative phosphorylation”

“The synthesis of RNA in isolated thymus nuclei is ATP dependent.”

Philip C. Ball is relentless. He claims that energy-dependent miRNA-mediated protein folding chemistry “must have been around for 600 million to 700 million years.” No experimental evidence of top-down causation supports such claims. However, like all other theorists, he does not seem to know anything about how the energy automagically emerged and led to our evolution from cyanobacteria / pond scum.

See for comparison: Why Dawkins is wrong | Denis Noble interview

“We thought that the sequencing of genetic information would unlock vast developments in medical cures for a whole host of illnesses. However, sequencing the genome alone hasn’t revolutionised medicine. Denis Noble argues that we have our treatments the wrong way around. Instead, we need to recognise that genes are not on/off switches, and move beyond dualism in Biology.”
