Light-activated error free DNA repair (2)

Summary: In the diagram and diatribes that accompany claims about de novo changes in electrons and the production of nucleotides, the amount of pseudoscientific nonsense becomes perfectly clear. Pseudoscientists start with energy-dependent changes but call the changes de novo changes in electrons. That allows the pseudoscientists to dismiss any facts about how the creation of energy must be linked to the creation of enzymes. The creation of enzymes does not automagically occur and the creation of all biodiversity must occur…

Schrodinger’s answer to Schrodinger’s question

There is no such thing as de novo control of electrons or self-assembly. Answering Schrödinger’s question: A free-energy formulation The free-energy principle (FEP) is a formal model of neuronal processes that is widely recognised in neuroscience as a unifying theory of the brain and biobehaviour. More recently, however, it has been extended beyond the brain to explain the dynamics of living systems, and their unique capacity to avoid decay. They don’t understand the question that Schrodinger answered. He linked the…

MicroRNAs and the Cassandra syndrome (revisited)

Conclusion: Serious scientists can explain every aspect of energy-dependent biophysically constrained viral latency in the context of details about these pathways and everything that links changes from electrons to ecosystems in all living genera. Why are the serious scientists still challenged by “…the tendency of academia to reject any academic-like work from outside academia?” What aspect of the academic contribution that could lead to the cure for all pathology do biologically uninformed academics want to continue to reject and attack?…

Observing energy-dependent intelligence and human idiocy

Conclusion: “Absolutely no information is provided about the sensory systems that enabled predators to detect their single-celled prey. No explanation is offered of how the sensory systems came into being that permitted single-celled organisms to detect their enemies’ scents and thus survive. Neither are we told what “evolutionary” mechanisms entered the equation during the construction of this extraordinarily complex mechanism.” Seeing the Beautiful Intelligence of Microbes …slime molds have evolved a system for essentially mapping their terrain and memorizing where…

A null mutation and healthy longevity?

Summary: Food odors and pheromones biophysically constrain all pathology in species from microbes to humans. What kind of biologically uninformed science idiot leaves out everything known to serious scientists about the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA and tells others they must falsify the neutral null theory that led to claims about a biophysically constrained beneficial “null mutation” in the Amish population of Berne, Indiana? Glutamylation Regulates Transport, Specializes Function, and Sculpts the Structure of Cilia Reported as: How to Control…

Light-activated error free DNA repair

Summary: The same set of microRNAs controls expression of the genes for rate-limiting enzymes, which control differences in the hormone production of different hormones in insects and crustaceans. That fact led to this claim in: The secret to safe DNA repair. …if you don’t have this enzyme, then this error-free repair is stopped. You can’t do it. If you can’t do the error-free repair, among other things that happen is that you expect these cells to be cancer prone. The…

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…

Epigenetic facts vs variable recombination theories

6/14/13 Nutrient-dependent/pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution: a model ….the model represented here is consistent with what is known about the epigenetic effects of ecologically important nutrients and pheromones on the adaptively evolved behavior of species from microbes to man. Minimally, this model can be compared to any other factual representations of epigenesis and epistasis for determination of the best scientific ‘fit’. 7/25/13 Jay R. Feierman: Variation is not nutrient availability and the something that is doing the selecting is not the individual…

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…

Selfish X-linked alleles and X chromosome inactivation

From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior In our section on molecular epigenetics from 1996 we wrote: Genomic-imprinting is also manifest in specific parts of the X-inactivation region’s related XIST gene. Here male- and female-specific methyl-group patterns participate in X-inactivation in females and also in the preferential inactivation of the paternal X in human placentae of female concepti (Harrison, 1989; Monk, 1995). This process indicates that tissues of the early conceptus can sense and react differentially to epigenetic sexual dimorphisms on…

    GENETICS As Animals Mingle, a Baffling Genetic Barrier A short stretch of DNA is challenging what it means to be a species.
