MicroRNAs biophysically constrain behavior

The link from the quantized energy of sunlight to the creation of microRNAs and biophysically constrained morphological phenotypes has been clear since 1944, when Schroedinger placed it into the context of “What is Life?”. In the reprint edition, Roger Penrose added: “How often do we still hear that quantum effects can have little relevance in the study of biology, or even that we eat food in order to gain energy?” (Roger Penrose 8 August 1991) Unfortunately for those who have…

Anti-entropic sunlight: Schrödinger’s Creationist Secret? (5)

Anti-entropic sunlight: Schrödinger’s Creationist Secret? (3) The list of those scheduled to present has changed. Michael Rosbash has been added. John E. Walker is not scheduled, which suggests that everyone else already knows that the creation of the sun’s anti-entropic virucidal energy is the link from the creation of ATP to the creation of RNA and all biophysically constrained viral latency via feedback loops and the physiology of reproduction. Rosbash, as all serious scientists know,  started with energy-dependent changes in…

Light-activated carbon fixation did not evolve (4)

Summary: Dobzhansky was joking about the time it would take for the creation of light to cause the energy-dependent fixation of RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions, which link food energy to the creation of enyzmes that metabolized food. His joke extends from the creation of sunlight — as the “light of evolution” — to the species-specific pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction and cell type differentiation in chimpanzees and humans compared to gorillas via one amino acid substitution. The joke was played on…

The tipping point (revisited): 70,000 publications

Excerpt: This new empirically based perspective on the evolution of genetic novelty will have more explanatory power in the future than the „error-replication“ narrative of the last century. Simply put, all serious scientists have always known that the “error-replication” narrative of the 20th century was a ridiculous misrepresentation of what Darwin placed into the context of his “conditions of life.” The tipping point?: 50,000publications (May 16, 2016) See also: The tipping point (revisited): 69,000 publications (January 20, 2018) Nearly 1000…

Conceptual critique: Innateness vs the death gene (2)

Excerpt: Martie Haselton notes “…there’s a hidden adaptive intelligence that has been shaped over eons. Martie Haselton places that ecological adaptation into the context of the claim that “…our bodies are designed to fight off invaders, whether they take the form of a cold virus… (p 73.) and she mentions the link from the designer to one theory about menstruation: “female bleeding serves to flush out “bad” sperm that may carry bacteria, viruses and other pathogens.” (p. 84) See also:…

Conceptual critique: Innateness vs the death gene (1)

Summary: The term innate is used in psychological explanations. The so-called explanations ignore facts about the light energy-dependent activation of endogenous substrates. The anti-entropic virucidal energy of sunlight links the endogenous substrates to biophysically constrained viral latency and healthy longevity via the physiology of reproduction in all living genera. “Proximate mechanisms” and “evolution” are terms used by biologically uninformed theorists. That fact becomes perfectly clear in the context of  The conceptual critique of innateness (paywalled) One proposal is that innateness can…

Subatomic: From thermophiles to humans (3)

Summary: RNA-mediated cell type differentiation in species from insects to primates can be linked from claims about the lower percentage of food energy-dependent DNA methylation in Diet and cell size both affect queen-worker differentiation through DNA methylation in honey bees (Apis mellifera, Apidae) to the conclusion from “Cryo-electron tomography reveals that dynactin recruits a team of dyneins for processive motility.” See also: Starfish reveal the origins of brain messenger molecules (February 9, 2016) One of the neuropeptides found is similar…

Subatomic: From thermophiles to humans

A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it. — Max Planck Every great scientific truth goes through three stages. First, people say it conflicts with the Bible. Next they say it has been discovered before. Lastly they say they always believed it. — Louis Agassiz  (1807-1873) The claims of neo-Darwininan theorists and big…

A reversible TCA cycle in a thermophile (3)

A pathway for mitotic chromosome formation The combination of nested loops distributed around a helically twisted axis plus dense chromatin packing achieves the 10,000-fold compaction of chromatin into linearly organized chromosomes that is required for accurate chromosome segregation when cells divide. The compaction of chromatin in the context of hydrophobicity is the topic of: Structural diversity of supercoiled DNA Our data provide relative comparisons of supercoiling-dependent twisted, writhed, curved, and kinked conformations and associated base exposure. Each of these structural…

Diet-driven RNA interference and mental health (3)

Discover’s “My Science Shop” now advertises the games that led to development of the cell biology game: “Cystosis,” which is a neo-Darwinian evolutionary theory-killer. Cytosis links the creation of anti-entropic viruidal light to all biodiversity on Earth via the physiology of reproduction and biophysically constrained viral latency. See the dumbed-down version of that fact: Missing Mutations Suggest a Reason for Sex Summary: A good model with a good model organism predicts. The mouse-to-human model of biophysically constrained viral latency predicts…
