Building blocks of life’s building blocks come from starlight

Excerpt 1)

…ultraviolet light from stars plays a key role in creating these molecules, rather than “shock” events that create turbulence, as was previously thought.

My comment: This is another very important change to their ridiculous theories. The Earth’s sun is the closest source of starlight/sunlight. The speed of light on contact with water links anti-entropic virucidal ultraviolet light from the sun to all nutrient energy-dependent biodiversity via photosynthesis and all downstream effects on life as we know it. For example, the conserved molecular mechanisms of autophagy and phosphorylation of fixed RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions have been linked from the the physiology of reproduction to all biodiversity. The mechanisms have been completely detailed.

No matter how many times I put the conserved molecular mechanisms into the context of biophysically constrained energy-dependent facts that link angstroms to ecosystems via supercoiled DNA, others seem willing to keep revising their old theories in attempts to piece together everything already known to serious scientists about biologically-based cause and effect.

Excerpt 2)

“On Earth, the sun is the driving source of almost all the life on Earth. Now, we have learned that starlight drives the formation of chemicals that are precursors to chemicals that we need to make life,” said Patrick Morris, first author of the paper and researcher at the Infrared Processing and Analysis Center at Caltech in Pasadena.

My comment: What is the source of life on Earth that is not directly linked to sunlight, which they refer to as starlight? Why is a researcher whose focus should be on infrared processing making claims about energy as information in the context of sunlight, which includes ultraviolet light and infrared light.

What has changed since 1944 and Schrodinger’s “What is Life?” or since earlier this year in my presentation of What is life when it is not protected from virus-driven energy theft?

Schrodinger (1944):

Indeed, in the case of higher animals we know the kind of orderliness they feed upon well enough, viz. the extremely well-ordered state of matter in more or less complicated organic compounds, which serve them as foodstuffs. After utilizing it they return it in a very much degraded form -not entirely degraded, however, for plants can still make use of it. (These, of course, have their most power supply of ‘negative entropy’ the sunlight.) (pp. 73 and 74)

My comment: Sunlight links femotosecond blasts of ultraviolet light from fixed RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions to repair of supercoiled DNA.

Kohl (2016)

The anti-entropic force of virucidal ultraviolet light links guanine–cytosine (G⋅C) Watson–Crick base pairing from hydrogen-atom transfer in DNA base pairs in solution to supercoiled DNA, which protects the organized genomes of all living genera from virus-driven entropy. For example, protection of DNA from permanent UV damage occurs in the context of photosynthesis and nutrient-dependent RNA-directed DNA methylation, which links RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions to DNA repair. In the context of thermodynamic cycles of protein biosynthesis and degradation, DNA repair enables the de novo creation of G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs). Olfactory receptor genes are GPCRs. The de novo creation of olfactory receptor genes links chemotaxis and phototaxis from foraging behavior to social behavior in species from microbes to humans. Foraging behavior links ecological variation to ecological adaptation in the context of this atoms to ecosystems model of biophysically constrained energy-dependent RNA-mediated protein folding chemistry. Protein folding chemistry links nutrient-dependent microRNAs from microRNA flanking sequences to energy transfer and cell type differentiation in the context of adhesion proteins, and supercoiled DNA that protects all organized genomes from virus-driven entropy.

My comment: The facts about ultraviolet light can now be placed into the context of the chemistry that is required to run molecular machines.

Excerpt:

In 100 to 200 years, I think we will fabricate everything from the bottom up” using molecular machines, he says.

My comment: Anyone who thinks that the creation of molecular machines does not start with energy-dependent top-down causation is biologically uninformed. Instead, Robert F. Service starts with this claim about evolution in his subheading: Primitive parts have evolved into more useful devices that pump, drill, move, and assemble other molecules.

It gets worse. He claims that the chemists are still struggling with powering, controlling, or imaging the devices that they think they can create from the bottom up.

This presents a 3-part challenge

1) to Einstein’s concept of molecular machines,

2) to Schrodinger’s ideas about energy-dependent cause and effect, and

3) to Dobzhansky’s claims that amino acid substitutions differentiate the cell types of all organisms in all species that have ever been created as energy-dependent self-sustaining molecular machines.

Without the top-down creation of the energy-dependent innate immune system, no molecular machines in any animal have ever been created. If researchers think they can use animal models for their basis of exploration, they will be left with no explanation other than “evolution” for the creation of molecular machines outside the context of autophagy, which links energy and virus-driven energy theft from the beginning of creation to its end. What happens when their molecular machines get infected by viruses is predicted by what happens when a computer is attacked by a virus hidden in software.  Energy theft causes dysfunction in all complex systems.
Why isn’t there more discussion of energy or energy theft by viruses?

“When a molecule absorbs a photon of light, it becomes ‘excited’ and has more energy to react with other particles. In the case of a hydrogen molecule, the hydrogen molecule vibrates, rotates faster or both when hit by an ultraviolet photon.”

This excited hydrogen reacts with carbons that originally formed in stars to create CH+ and CH, the scientists conclude.

“This is the initiation of the whole carbon chemistry,” John Pearson, a researcher at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the study’s co-author, said. “If you want to form anything more complicated, it goes through that pathway.”

My comment:

@Matt Helm They just put everything known to serious scientists about creation and all biodiversity into the context of Biblical Genesis, and you are among those who cannot link energy-dependent changes from angstroms to ecosystems. Thanks for your display of ignorance. Without your display, other ignorant voters in the USA would be more likely to elect another democrat for President.

See for comparison (I reiterate): What is life when it is not protected from virus driven entropy
