What if Darwin was not still dead?

What Would Darwin Think About Modern Darwinism? Excerpt: “Imagine if Darwin could be transported to the present and learn what has become of his theory. What would excite him the most? Would anything disturb or disappoint him? TVOL has polled some of the most distinguished evolutionists of our day and we are pleased to provide their answers as our gift to Darwin and his admirers on his 206th Birthday!” It would be interesting to compare answers from distinguished serious scientists…

Military combat training to fight disease (2)

See: Military combat training to fight disease In the quantum world, the future affects the past Excerpt 1) “It’s not clear why in the real world, the world made up of many particles, time only goes forward and entropy always increases,” Murch said. My comment: Serious scientists are attempting to determine why entropy does not always increase. They realize that feedback loops link cause and effect from the quantum world to the real world of light-induced amino acid substitutions that…

RNA-mediated epigenetic modification via DNA-methylation

I have repeatedly used the phrase “RNA-directed DNA methylation and RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions” in the context of links from the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of DNA in the organized genomes of species from microbes to man. See for example: RNA-mediated, with links to ~200 blog posts. In the introduction to my 2012 review I attested to the importance of the pathway that links the epigenetic landscape to pharmacogenomics. Excerpt: “The gene, cell, tissue, organ, organ-system pathway is…

Quantum physics, quantum biology, and quantum consciousness

Has anyone but me attempted to link light-induced amino acid substitutions from quantum physics to quantum biology in the context of the following works? All five published articles appear to be linked to quantum consciousness by the chemistry of nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled feedback loops and chromatin loops that lead to increasing organismal complexity. The feedback loops are epigenetically linked from RNA-mediated events to protein folding and the stability of DNA in organized genomes. A Spectroscopic Mechanism for Primary Olfactory Reception Molecular…

Biological energy and a microbiome model of a light-driven time machine

I am not quite finished with this blog post, but will update it after posting to protect against piracy of the concept. Experimental simulation of closed timelike curves Abstract excerpt: The study of these systems therefore provides valuable insight into nonlinearities and the emergence of causal structures in quantum mechanics—essential for any formulation of a quantum theory of gravity. Here we experimentally simulate the nonlinear behaviour of a qubit interacting unitarily with an older version of itself, addressing some of…

Quantum Superpositions: let there be light

Ideal Negative Measurements in Quantum Walks Disprove Theories Based on Classical Trajectories Reported as: Atoms can be in two places at the same time Excerpt: “This is not yet a proof that quantum mechanics hold for large objects,” cautions Alberti. My comment: I framed my comments and a question in the context of this article on physics. Their claim of a possible size limit on quantum superpositions seemed to divorce top-down causation from cell–cell communication in mammals. That suggested there…

Sneaking up from behind (2)

See Sneaking up from behind and Physicists: Desperate Acts Biochemical communications as a prerequisite for dark photon communications? Excerpt 1) “…there have been innumerable links to various hot topics in biology about which I know virtually nothing. I have managed to catch only some key notions like behavior, nutrients, nutrinogenomics, nutrinogenetic signaling, pheromone, hormones, ecology. For instance, nutrients are found to have epigenetic effect on gene expression: they affect behaviour! Pheromones have effects on behavior. I understand that molecular biologist…

Sneaking up from behind

I’ve been busy following the current research and attempting to discuss it, which led me to not finish this blog post. I started writing it last week. Since then, as I had anticipated, others have tried to sneak up from behind and stake their claims to links from physics to cell type differentiation that I have already detailed. Before moving forward with explanations on the role of light-induced amino acid substitutions in a follow-up blog post, I’ll post this now…

Quantum entanglement, mass, and biomass

Joseph Kover seems closer than most other physicists to linking light-induced amino acid substitutions to cell type differentiation and biomass via the biophysically constrained chemistry of protein folding.  Today he posted notice of the following publication with the comment: “… just what I was waiting for…” Entanglement Makes Quantum Particles Measurably Heavier, Says Quantum Theorist Excerpt: The discovery is a long sought-after link between the theories of quantum mechanics and general relativity See also this model by Joseph Kover: I’m…

Physicists: Desperate Acts

Participation on the FB group Thinking Allowed Original led to an invite by Ulla Mattfolk to participate on her secret group  Quantum Biology, coherence and decoherence. On January 22 at 11:45pm, discussion led me to ask whether biophotonic energy differences could be recognized by the photons at the quantum level of their interactions/energies. I thought the answer might explain biodiversity via a link from quantum level self – other recognition to immune system recognition and to macromolecular self – other recognition. My focus has been on well-established…

  • What Darwin proved: there’s no such thing as a species
    GENETICS As Animals Mingle, a Baffling Genetic Barrier A short stretch of DNA is challenging what it means to be a species.
