Until death: Virus-driven failure of multisensory integration (1)

Martha McClintock‘s works inspired my works. Publication of “The Scent of Eros: Mysteries of Odor Human Sexualty” (1995) led Denise Chen to study olfaction and pheromones. See for example: Encoding human sexual chemosensory cues in the orbitofrontal and fusiform cortices. Her student, Wen Zhou, returned to China and she is the senior author of Olfaction Warps Visual Time Perception. Since 1995, all accurate representations of how foraging behavior links food odors and pheromones from feedback loops to sexual reproduction and…

Viruses in pathogenic variants disrupt alternative splicings

Pathogenic variants that alter protein code often disrupt splicing Approximately 10% of exonic mutations altered splicing, mostly by disrupting multiple stages of spliceosome assembly. We present a large-scale characterization of exonic splicing mutations using a new technology that facilitates variant classification and keeps pace with variant discovery. Assay of nearly 5,000 mutations reveals roots of genetic splicing errors “Splicing errors can be very deleterious because instead of just changing one amino acid [the building block of a protein], it can…

Food for thought: Penrose v Ellis (3)

Food for thought: Penrose v Ellis (2) Thanks to Magnus S. Magnusson for calling my attention to this. He claimed it is an example of wonderful science. It is an example of pseudoscientific nonsense! We Can Now Harness the Tardigrade’s Strangest Superpower – and Give It to Other Organisms …tardigrades produce a special type of ‘bioglass’ that holds their essential proteins and molecules in a suspended state until they’re rehydrated back to life. The nutrient energy-dependent de novo creation of…

Thinking about energy is not radical re-thinking

The brain: a radical rethink is needed to understand it …Optogenetics, a technique that uses genetic modification of neurons so that their electrical activity can be controlled with light pulses – can help us to explore their specific contribution to brain function. Optogenetics links the speed of light on contact with water to what is known about all energy-dependent cell type differentiation in all individuals of all living genera. Serious scientists, for example, have linked angstroms to ecosystems in all living…

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…

Energy-dependent pheromone-controlled entropy (4)

Solar-driven reforming of lignocellulose to H2 with a CdS/CdOx photocatalyst Reported as: Scientists harness solar power to produce clean hydrogen from biomass They claim that the rigid structure of nature’s equivalent to armored concrete evolved to protect plants and trees from degradation. They don’t make claims about what might cause the degradation. They start with the likelihood that degradation automagically occurs. That led them to design a combination of catalyst and solution that mimics how the anti-entropic energy of sunlight…

Proof: Sunlight is energy as information

Hypothesis: Kallmann’s syndrome is proof that virus-driven energy theft causes all pathology in species from archaea to humans via the degradation of messenger RNA and the loss of one allele.   Thought experiment: Step 1) The loss of one allele and the transgenerational epigenetic inheritance of Zika virus-damaged DNA can be compared to the degradation of messenger RNA in bacteria that is manifested in archaea and L-forms. Step 2) The degradation of messenger RNA in primates differentiates healthy longevity from…

Serious scientists refute theistic evolution again

See: Pseudoscientists fail to refute theistic evolution Seagrass ecosystems reduce exposure to bacterial pathogens of humans, fishes, and invertebrates Reported as: Underwater grasslands can cut concentrations of harmful bacteria in half …deadly coral diseases were 50% less prevalent in regions with seagrass meadows. The scientists aren’t entirely sure how the seagrass combats bacteria so effectively, but one possibility could be that it anchors the nutrient-rich sediment to the sea floor, effectively preventing harmful microbes from feeding on the nutrients. They…

Pseudoscientists fail to refute theistic evolution

Darwinism for the Genomic Age: Connecting Mutation to Diversification …the chief cause of our natural unwillingness to admit that one species has given birth to other and distinct species, is that we are always slow in admitting any great change of which we do not see the intermediate steps. (Darwin, 1859) Darwin put energy-dependent “conditions of life” before what is now known about natural selection for codon optimality. That is the chief cause for ignoring anything that neo-Darwinists claim about…

Energy as information and constrained endogenous RNA interference (3)

See also: Energy as information and constrained endogenous RNA interference (2) The Scope (Febrary 4, 2017) On World Cancer Day, we’re featuring some of the most exciting research developments of the past year. First up? Yoshinori Ohsumi, Nobel laureate, whose research could save your life. 2016 Nobel Prize Winner Yoshinori Ohsumi’s Discoveries Could Change How We Treat Disease His initial work, first started in 1992, focused on the genes behind the autophagy process in yeast cells. Autophagy, however, has implications…
