Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (5)

Summary: Emmy Noethe’s theorems were developed in the early 1900’s. Richard Feynman inadvertently or purposefully alluded to them as examples of human idiocy. Discover Magazine resurrected the examples of human idiocy in a 2017 article. For comparison, Choi et al., (2017) support the claims that intercellular and interkingdom communication is energy-dependent and controlled by the metabolism of food energy to pheromones. It is obvious that pheromones biophysically constrain the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA. That fact links everything currently known…

Cell type assembly and the space-time continuum

Summary: The time to adopt energy-dependent cell type assembly as the unit of cognition was in 1944, when Schrodinger published “What is Life.” By the time Roger Penrose made his comment in the reprint edition, everyone else was too late. Penrose wrote: “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?” (Roger Penrose 8 August 1991) See: Time (and space)…

God’s shrinking role in salvation (2)

Conclusion: There is no such thing as a blind dance of atoms. Quantized energy-dependent changes link angstroms to ecosystems in all living genera via the physiology of reproduction. Serious scientists do not link “high-level cause and purposes” to anything that does not link what organisms eat from food energy to the physiology of reproduction. Only pseudoscientists claim that ideas about “emergence” are “…a remarkable synthesis across fields and levels.” See: God’s shrinking role in salvation These 6 Common Vegetables Are…

Food energy-dependent epigenetic adaptation (3)

Food energy-dependent epigenetic adaptation (2) On 5/24/17 I attempted to post this to the ISHE’s human ethology group in response to the post on How concepts of God have developed: God’s shrinking role. God’s survival. Conclusions. For comparison, see the expanding role of anti-entropic virucidal energy that theorists claim automagically emerged to sustain all evolved biodiversity. I included a link to: I also included a link to: The moderator of the group responded quickly: Jay R. Feierman wrote: What you…

Food energy-dependent epigenetic adaptation (2)

Due to the overwhelming support for my model of top-down causation and all energy-dependent biophysically constrained biodiversity on Earth, I will replace Food energy-dependent epigenetic adaptation (2) with the more appropriately titled God’s shrinking role in your salvation See: Food energy-dependent epigenetic adaptation and God’s shrinking role in your salvation (in prep) before proceeding to the rest of this series on epigenetic adaptation.

Food energy-dependent epigenetic adaptation

Mechanism of transmembrane signaling by sensor histidine kinases, was reported as Scientists investigate how the sense of smell works in bacteria …the signaling and inactive states differ only very slightly at the nitrate-binding site – by 0.5-1 angstroms, which is approximately one fifth of the size of the ion itself (1 angstrom is 10-10 meters). However, when this ion binds to the sensor, it causes huge changes in the protein: The helices of different monomers begin to move in different…

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-dependent epigenetic translation to mRNA stability

Negative selection in humans and fruit flies involves synergistic epistasis Negative selection against deleterious alleles produced by mutation influences within-population variation as the most pervasive form of natural selection. Naturally occurring positive selection for energy-dependent codon optimality replaced every aspect of neo-Darwinian theories that linked natural selection from mutations to evolution of increasing organismal complexity. Positive selection for epigenetically-effected beneficial alleles links the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of supercoiled DNA via nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled metabolic networks and genetic networks.…

Food for thought: Penrose v Ellis (1)

Food for thought.   The most popular ideas of atheists may still include hypothetical biogenic features that arrived from outer space. That’s how pseudoscientific nonsense appears to become a fact of life on Earth.   All experimental evidence of energy-dependent biologically-based cause and effect must be suppressed or ignored, and that’s what atheists prefer to do. See for instance: Hypothetical biogenic features in the context of the Alan Hills fossil. (Thanks to John Hewitt for reminding me of this.) On…

The media-industrial complex attack CNN chief: Politicians should oppose Trump’s attack on media …Trump’s labeling of the media as the enemy of the state was unfortunate and dangerous. It was an accurate label that has been supported by Bill Gates and the Allen Institute in the context of the forthcoming viral apocalypse. See for comparison this enemy of the state-issued media representation:   “We are all proud of professor Filipp’s accomplishments,” Vice Chancellor for Research Samuel Traina said. “He exemplifies…
