Consciousness is simply food rearranged

The claim that consciousness is simply food rearranged can be placed into a historical perspective that crosses more than 70 years. Historical perspective: (1944) What Is Life? Excerpt: 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,…

Hematopoiesis and practopoiesis

Practopoiesis A thought results primarily from an adjustment of the brain hardware, and not from a computation executed by that hardware. My comment: The adjustments of the brain hardware integrate RNA-mediated events that include gene duplication and fixation of amino acid substitutions. The nutrient-dependent gene duplications and substitutions link the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of DNA in the organized genomes of species from microbes to man via their physiology of reproduction. The idea that everything known about nutrient-dependent…

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…
