Erwin Schrödinger

From optoribogenetics to HelioRiboGenetics (6)

“How often do we still hear that quantum effects can have little relevance in the study of biology, or even that we eat food in order to gain energy?” 8/8/91 2020 Physics Nobel Laureate, Roger Penrose linked the answer to his rhetorical question from physics to chemistry and molecular biology via the refutation of neo-Darwinian pseudoscientific nonsense and Big Bang cosmology. Quantum coherence has since been linked to coherently organized biology. See: MicroRNAs organize intrinsic variation into stem cell states…

A mental health problem at the highest level (3)

Summary: It has been 75 years since Erwin Schrödinger exposed the pseudoscientific nonsense of mutation-driven evolution in the lecture series that was published as What is Life? (1944) The mental health of so-called science journalists must be addressed. Many of them seem to be pathological liars or, at best biologically uninformed science idiots who cannot link physics and chemistry from molecular epigenetics to all energy-dependent biodiversity on Earth. The Biggest Myth In Quantum Physics by Ethan Siegel Conclusion: Take ourselves…

Theistic evolutionists fight back and lose (3)

See also: Theistic evolutionists fight back and lose See also: Theistic evolutionists fight back and lose (2) For succinct representations of the claims made by people who are obviously biologically uninformed, see: 7/25/13 Jay R. Feierman: Variation is not nutrient availability and the something that is doing the selecting is not the individual organism. A feature of an educated person is to realize what they do not know. Sadly, you don’t know that you have an incorrect understanding [of] Darwinian…

Energy-dependent purifying selection / autophagy

This is a multi-part series. See also: Energy-dependent purifying selection / autophagy (2-6) Pain from Cells that Are Not Neurons Introduction: Recent research on pain shows a very surprising result. A new type of neuroplasticity has been discovered… My comment: It’s discovery does not make it a new type of neuroplasticity. Discoveries like this attest only to the ignorance of theorists who have never considered the role that virus-driven energy theft plays in all pathology. Excerpt 1) Injuries produce ATP…

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,…

Questions about life’s diversity

Questions about life can be answered in the context of what sustains it. 1) Answers must explain the diversity of life. 2) The diversity of life may help to explain the purpose of life. 3) Explaining the purpose of life may assist anyone who does not think they will live forever. 4) Answers to questions about life that explain life’s diversity must include what is known about the conserved molecular mechanisms that link differences in morphological and behavioral phenotypes in…

A single amino acid substitution differentiates cell types of E. coli

Rare amino acid influences E. coli infection Excerpt: “They found that E. coli O157 is unable to attach itself to host tissue in high concentrations of D-Serine. Other strains, such as those that cause meningitis, thrive in the presence of the amino-acid.” My comment: Three steps are required to link the amino acid substitution in E. coli to RNA-mediated stability of the DNA in the organized genome of a nutrient-dependent strain. 1) nutrient-dependent potentiation makes a trait possible; 2) receptor-mediated…
