Loss of energy as information (1)

Summary: Koonin claims that the theories of population geneticists have replaced what he calls the just-so stories of adaptationists with testable predictions. He claims that serious scientists should attempt to falsify the ridiculous theories touted by people like him, so that the ongoing use of ridiculous mathematical models can improve our understanding of evolution. I think Koonin may be attempting to address the concerns brought forward after another biologically uninformed science idiot claimed that my refutation of neo-Darwinian pseudoscientific nonsense…

Long-term adaptation replaces evolution (3)

Summary: Koonin thinks that serious scientists who have linked the creation of energy to all biodiversity via the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction in species from microbes to humans must prove that everything the serious scientists know did not occur randomly after the sun’s anti-entropic virucidal energy emerged from nothing. Other pseudoscientists have taken a step towards refuting Koonin’s moronic claim with publication of: A mammalian blood odor component serves as an approach-avoidance cue across phylum border – from flies to…

Long-term adaptation replaces evolution (2)

The food energy-dependent “doubling up” on ‘junk DNA’ is biophysically constrained by the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction. The metabolism of food to species-specific pheromones links the conserved molecular mechanisms of RNA-mediated cell type differentiation in all individuals of all living genera to healthy longevity via what is known about amino acid substitutions in supercoiled DNA, which link energy-dependent changes in chirality to autophagy. Supercoiled DNA is far more dynamic than the ‘Watson-Crick’ double … Researchers have imaged in unprecedented detail the…

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:…

Energy-dependent structure and function: Until death (1)

The structure-energy landscape of NMDA receptor gating …using single-molecule Forster resonance energy transfer (smFRET), we map the energy landscape of the first transmembrane segment of the Rattus norvegicus NMDA receptor under resting and various liganded conditions. These results show kinetically and structurally distinct changes associated with apo, agonist-bound, and inhibited receptors linked by a linear mechanism of gating at this site. Furthermore, the smFRET data suggest that allosteric inhibition by zinc occurs by an uncoupling of the agonist-induced changes at…

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…

Thanks again for asking about DNA methylation

Re: RNA-directed DNA methylation (1996) See: From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior Molecular epigenetics. It is now understood that certain genes undergo a process called “genomic or parental imprinting.” Early in embryonic development attached methyl groups become removed from most genes. Several days later, methyl groups are reattached in appropriate sites. Fascinatingly, some such genes reestablish methylation patterns based upon whether the chromosomal segment carrying the gene came from maternal or paternal chromosomes. See also: RNA-directed DNA methylation: an epigenetic…

Caught in an epigenetic trap: flag waving consequences

Egypt concert-goers arrested for raising rainbow flag This is an example of “flag waving” consequences from another part of the world. They are accused of “public indecency” and “inciting immorality among young people”, the sources said following Monday’s arrests. Why? These protesters were probably caught in an epigenetic trap. See: Search Results for “epigenetic trap” The colors of the rainbow link the anti-entropic virucidal energy of sunlight to epigenetically trapped water in supercoiled DNA and all biophysically constrained biodiversity via…

Life and death via chemical effects on photosynthesis

Summay: “…chemosignals are a promising approach both to modeling posttraumatic stress disorders in humans [36] and to searching for mehods of their treatment.” Serious scientists linked the sense of smell in bacteria from the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction in all living genera to our visual perception of energy and mass in the context of the space time continuum. The fact that food odors and pheromones biophysically constrain cell type differentiation in mammals was first placed into the context of [Pheromonal…

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.…
