Critical values expose virus-driven energy theft (2)

Why Don’t The Amish Get Cancer? …the Amish commitment to simple, productive lives and clean, local food is benefiting their health in ways that the rest of America can only dream about. They exemplify what it means to be an ecologically adapted human population. See also: Past 5,000 years prolific for changes to human genome The facts support the beliefs of young earth creationists. That invites ridicule and denigration of my published works. But the experimental evidence of biologically-based cause and…

Critical values expose virus-driven energy theft

Critical Values: is ASCP’s quarterly magazine with news and features covering trends of interest to pathologists and laboratory professionals alike. See for example: Attentive Clinical Laboratory Scientist Discovers First Human Case of Borrelia turicatae Critical Values spoke with technologist Dolli Lane, MLT(ASCP)CMCsCM, and the chief of the hematology section, Chris Boyd, MLT(ASCP)CM, about their findings. Their story demonstrates how attention to detail saves lives. Every serious scientist I know is on the verge of linking the creation of the sun’s…

Anti-entropic energy and the “Music of Life”

TRIM28 Controls a Gene Regulatory Network Based on Endogenous Retroviruses in Human Neural Progenitor Cells … we report the existence of a TRIM28-controlled gene regulatory network based on ERVs that is active in hNPCs. Our findings open up for several exciting future studies on the role of ERVs as potential drivers of human brain evolution, their contribution to individual variation, and the implication in human brain disorders. All gene regulatory networks are energy-dependent. They must link the sun’s anti-entropic virucidal…

Chirality is reality

I was banned from commenting on phys.org posts about a year ago, but recently found I could post to their FB page. This forces their “science” journalists to fight against the accurate representations of biologically-based cause and effect. Here’s an example of how they scrambled to defend their .org domain after my series of ~ 40 posts on chirality culminated with this one from January 1, 2017: Energy-dependent chirality (2) They linked light-induced changes in gamma oscillations (20-50 Hz) to…

Energy-dependent hydrogen bonds in supercoiled DNA

Chirality Check Most biological macromolecules are homochiral, and enzymes help to maintain this state of affairs; for example, checkpoints ensure that only l-amino acids are incorporated into proteins during translation. The fixation of the only achiral amino acid, glycine in position 6 of the gonadotropin releasing hormone decapeptide protein links the nutrient energy-dependent pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction from yeasts to humans. That fact about RNA-mediated protein folding chemistry is missing from the chirality check, It also is missing from representations…

Energy-dependent chirality

See also: Achiral glycine Summary: Virus-driven energy theft alters the interactions between physics and chemistry that maintain biophysically constrained biodiversity. That’s how viruses are linked from mutations to all pathology. Nutrient energy-dependent changes in the context of the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction biophysically constrain biodiversity via the fixation of amino acid substitutions in supercoiled DNA, which protects organized genomes from virus-driven pathology. Chirality (chemistry) Two enantiomers of a generic amino acid that is chiral The chirality of amino acids is energy-dependent…

Energy-dependent alternative splicings 1996 – 2016 (2)

See also: Energy-dependent alternative splicings 1996 – 2016 Re: Rs3827760 is Val370Ala and EDARV370A No matter what it is called, Val370Ala may be the best example of how nutrient energy-dependent biophysically constrained pheromone-controlled viral latency protects all organisms from virus-driven energy theft and all pathology. For example, see: Genome recoding by tRNA modifications The succession of mRNA codons controls the synthesis of polypeptides through the complementarity between each of the 64 possible codon triplets and the tRNA anticodons that decode…

Energy-dependent oscillating gene networks organize life

Nascent, innate, intrinsic, and biofunctional are among the “weasel words” used by theorists who ignore the fact that all life-sustaining energy comes from the sun via hydrogen-atom transfer in DNA base pairs in solution. See how Jon Lieff continues to misrepresent that fact, by placing everything known about RNA-mediated cell type differentiation back into the context of evolution. Like all pseudoscientists, he starts with energy but fails to mention where the energy came from or where it goes when virus-driven…

Anti-entropic virucidal energy as information

 How Can Physics Underlie the Mind? Top-Down Causation in the Human Context by George Ellis (p. 404) Repeated thousands of times over geological timescales, it is this relentless repetition of the top-down process of adaptive selection [29] that gives Darwinian evolution its enormous power. Theorists never seem to ask questions about where the enormous power came from or where it goes when organisms die. They seem to think that relentless repetition of biophysically constrained energy-dependent protein biosynthesis and degradation automagically…

Bio-functional information

Peter Berean‘s attack on my model of energy as information led him to invent or re-introduce the term “Bio-Functional Information.” The comment from Greg Thurston (below) can be placed into the context of Schrodinger’s claims from “What is Life?” For instance, Schrodinger challenged de Vries definition of the term mutation with this entry: “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…
