Step 1) The loss of one allele and the transgenerational epigenetic inheritance of Zika virus-damaged DNA can be compared to the degradation of messenger RNA in bacteria that is manifested in archaea and L-forms.
Step 2) The degradation of messenger RNA in primates differentiates healthy longevity from pathology via a single amino acid substitution in gorillas compared to chimpanzees and modern humans.
Unless someone shows how mutation-driven evolution leads to increasing organismal complexity in species from microbes to humans, the speed of light on contact with water clearly establishes the link from the de novo creation of microRNA flanking sequences to hydrogen-atom transfer in DNA base pairs in solution and all energy-dependent morphological and behavioral phenotypes.
Unless there is another model for comparison to Kohl (2013), energy as information will be established as the link from endogenous RNA interference to all biodiversity. Until then, a natural law appears to link food odors and the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction from biophysically constrained RNA-mediated protein folding chemistry to feedback loops.
The feedback loops clearly link physics and chemistry to biodiversity from energy as information and food odors to pheromones that control the physiology of reproduction. Pheromones are the chemical signals that prevent virus-driven energy theft and genomic entropy in all living genera.
