Food energy-as-information, and consciousness

Informational Mode of the Brain Operation and Consciousness as an Informational Related System (6/7/19) Conclusion: consciousness could be fully described and understood in informational terms. In the same issue, the food that organisms eat is linked to human consciousness via natural selection for energy-dependent codon optimality. Codon optimality biophysically constrains viral latency via the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction and fixation of RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions. The amino acid substitutions link food energy as information to transgenerational epigenetic inheritance of healthy…

Ecological adaptation: A new definition of heredity (1)

Excerpt: ” …long-standing presumptions led to the claims made by biologically uninformed theorists who failed to link biophysically constrained viral latency to the recent origin of most protein-coding variants via the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction in species from microbes to humans…” She Has Her Mother’s Laugh: The Powers, Perversions, and Potential of Heredity May 29, 2018 | 672 Pages From the description of the book: 1) We need a new definition of what heredity is… 2) …Zimmer ultimately unpacks urgent…

The MicroRNAome Strikes Back: A Sokalian hoax (10)

Linda Buck, Ben Feringa, Michael Gazzaniga, Christof Koch, Nick Lane and Svante Paabo are among the presenters who will almost undoubtedly discuss some or all of my claims. Prepare to ask questions or intelligently discuss accurate representations of top-down causation by watching this: The energy-dependent creation of the microRNAome protects the organized genomes of all living genera from the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA that links mutations to all pathology. See: The Bull Sperm MicroRNAome and the Effect of Fescue…

Predicting who wins the 2017 Nobel Prizes (2)

Summary: Endogenous RNA interference is the energy-dependent epigenetic link from the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction to biophysically constrained viral latency. The stress-linked virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA has been linked to all pathology. Three Americans win Nobel medicine prize for body rhythm work [But they failed to link Americanism to Creationism] I predicted that Wen Zhou would win for linking the energy-dependent creation of G protein-coupled receptors to all biodiversity via olfaction and the space-time continuum in the context of…

Energy-dependent epigenetic translation to mRNA stability (6)

See: Energy-dependent epigenetic translation to mRNA stability (5) Five energy-dependent amino acid substitutions are linked to differences in RNA content and biodiversity in 4 mammalian species. Excerpt: Species- and tissue-specific variation in mt-tRNA incorporation into the mt-LSU was analyzed….  Analysis of porcine dermal fibroblasts (C), human osteosarcoma 143B cells (D), bovine cardiac tissue (E), and rat hepatic tissue (F) depicts the relative abundance of each mt-tRNA across fractions (ImageQuant software); represented as a percentage of the total signal. In my…

Energy as information and constrained endogenous RNA interference (3)

See also: Energy as information and constrained endogenous RNA interference (2) The Scope (Febrary 4, 2017) On World Cancer Day, we’re featuring some of the most exciting research developments of the past year. First up? Yoshinori Ohsumi, Nobel laureate, whose research could save your life. 2016 Nobel Prize Winner Yoshinori Ohsumi’s Discoveries Could Change How We Treat Disease His initial work, first started in 1992, focused on the genes behind the autophagy process in yeast cells. Autophagy, however, has implications…

Expunging the distinguished public

Royal Society Expunges Public From Evo Record Many of the attendee-participants were, in fact, more distinguished than many of the actual speakers. So the audience came to be heard as well as to listen. But the official recording (now posted) has been wiped clean of public comment — the most robust part of the meeting — and what we are left with, with few exceptions, is a series of academic lectures and old science. Thanks for continuing to make the…

Explorers who do not know what is known

Can genetic testing determine antimicrobial susceptibility? EUCAST experts say not yet… (link opens pdf) Reported as:  Whole genome sequencing cannot yet be used to determine antimicrobial susceptibility For most bacterial species there is currently insufficient evidence to support the use of WGS-inferred AST to guide clinical decision making. WGS-AST should be a funding priority if it is to become a rival to phenotypic AST. My comment: JVKohl said… Perhaps the focus should be on what can be done with WGS.…
