Sunlight bursts the social bubble of physics and math

Accessing non-natural reactivity by irradiating nicotinamide-dependent enzymes with light Under irradiation with visible light, the nicotinamide-dependent enzyme known as ketoreductase can be transformed from a carbonyl reductase into an initiator of radical species and a chiral source of hydrogen atoms. Physicists, mathematicians, and my Facebook friend Paul Harrington, have said nothing about the obvious direct link from the sun’s anti-entropic virucidal energy, which is the source of hydrogen atoms that links the speed of light on contact with water, to…
