An evolutionary theory killer

Polymaths and paradigm shifts: from Asimov to Bear (1)

Summary: In the context of what is known about how top-down causation must be linked to all biodiversity on Earth, the anti-entropic virucidal energy of sunlight links differences in the energy of two photons from the proton motive force to the creation of microRNAs. The link from the proton motive force to the creation of microRNAs is endogenous RNA interference (RNAi). Endogenous RNAi is manifested as energy-dependent differences in biophysically constrained viral latency. Biophysically constrained viral latency has been linked…

How to create biologically uninformed theorists

Summary: On March 2, 2018, Philip C. Ball and Nick Lane started making claims about proton gradients. Their claims are based on my model of quantized energy as information. This post includes added support for what is known to all serious scientists about the light-activated endogenous substrates that link molecular epigenetics to RNA-mediated autophagy. See first: Energy as information and constrained endogenous RNA interference (audio/visual aid 2017) Feedback loops link quantized energy as information to biophysically constrained RNA-mediated protein folding…

Carl Zimmer refutes theistic evolution (2)

Carl Zimmer refutes theistic evolution (1) Carl Zimmer recognizes the need for a new definition of what heredity is. But he refuses to tell others what he knows about the role that viruses play in the transgenerational epigenetic inheritance of all pathology. Examples of inherited pathology typically include his misrepresentations among others who fail to link ecological variation to ecological adaptation in the context of energy-dependent biophysically constrained viral latency. See: Ancient Viruses Are Buried in Your DNA  by Carl…

The MicroRNAome Strikes Back: A Sokalian hoax (6)

The nature of nurture: Effects of parental genotypes Science  January 26, 2018 …nontransmitted alleles can affect a child through their impacts on the parents and other relatives, a phenomenon we call “genetic nurture.” It doesn’t matter what they call it, since there is no defined boundary between genetics and epigenetics. Reported as: You Are Shaped by the Genes You Inherit. And Maybe by Those You Don’t by Carl Zimmer January 25, 2018 A calf may inherit those milk-boosting variants from its mother. But…

From nitrogen atoms to ecosystems in all living genera

Summary: The “tiny machines” that “massacre viruses” link the creation of the anti-entropic virucidal energy of sunlight to the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction in all living genera via the nitrogen-dependent weekend resurrection of the bacterial flagellum in P. fluorescens. See: Virus-mediated archaeal hecatomb in the deep seafloor We show here for the first time the crucial role of viruses in controlling archaeal dynamics and therefore the functioning of deep-sea ecosystems, and suggest that virus-archaea interactions play a central role in…

Energy-dependent base editing and correction of mutations (2)

On 12/10/17, a long-term business partner called to tell me he was ending his efforts to sell human pheromone-enhanced fragrance products to those who understand how the products help to biophysically constrain viral latency in all mammals. QuEBS workshop has established itself as an outstanding stage to present the research in the intersection of physics, chemistry and biology. […] discussion of notable scientists and pioneers of Quantum Biology… established excitons in biology as the “must-talk-language” when describing the quantum effects…

Schrodinger’s answer to Schrodinger’s question

There is no such thing as de novo control of electrons or self-assembly. Answering Schrödinger’s question: A free-energy formulation The free-energy principle (FEP) is a formal model of neuronal processes that is widely recognised in neuroscience as a unifying theory of the brain and biobehaviour. More recently, however, it has been extended beyond the brain to explain the dynamics of living systems, and their unique capacity to avoid decay. They don’t understand the question that Schrodinger answered. He linked the…

Energy-dependent structure and function: Until death (3)

Energy-dependent structure and function: Until death (2) The COMT Val158Met polymorphism supposedly is not found in species other than humans See: Global variation in the frequencies of functionally different catechol-O-methyltransferase alleles This is also the first study establishing the COMT*L allele as the derived allele unique to humans. Other organisms do not commit suicide. That suggests the human specific COMT Val158Met substitution may be important to those who know very little about suicide prevention. For instance, see: The catechol-o-methyltransferase Val158Met polymorphism…

Energy-dependent structure and function: Until death (2)

Energy-dependent structure and function: Until death (1) Terry Crews details alleged sexual assault by ‘high level’ Hollywood exec “This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD. Why? Because this kind of thing happened to ME…” Crews tweeted Tuesday. This claim helps to link the celebrity status of Hollywood victims like Robin Williams to the suicide rate in veterans who have returned from military service overseas with viruses. The viruses clearly link energy-dependent changes in the microRNA/messenger RNA balance…

Energy-dependent structure and function: Until death (1)

The structure-energy landscape of NMDA receptor gating …using single-molecule Forster resonance energy transfer (smFRET), we map the energy landscape of the first transmembrane segment of the Rattus norvegicus NMDA receptor under resting and various liganded conditions. These results show kinetically and structurally distinct changes associated with apo, agonist-bound, and inhibited receptors linked by a linear mechanism of gating at this site. Furthermore, the smFRET data suggest that allosteric inhibition by zinc occurs by an uncoupling of the agonist-induced changes at…
