The concept of a species (2)

The science of peaceful coexistence among members of the same species and human populations that are vilified starts with an understanding of the birds and the bees, which seems to be beyond the ability of neo-Darwinian theorists and Big Bang cosmologists to grasp. See for comparison: Birds from different species recognize each other and cooperate Article excerpt 1): Australian fairy-wrens not only recognize individual birds from other species, but also form long-term partnerships that help them forage and defend their…

Exposing the 2nd Law to more ridicule (1)

Summary: Experiment demonstrates quantum mechanical effects from biological system Schrödinger (1944) linked the anti-entropic virucidal energy of sunlight from the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction in soil bacteria to all biodiversity. He then began to suspect that his colleagues, who displayed human idiocy, would kill him – if ever again he reasserted the facts. After 1944, Richard P. Feynman took a stand against the human idiocy, and lost. He was not killed, just ignored. Ignorance prevails. It always has. The virus-driven…

Open Science: Closed to facts about microRNAs

See my 5-part series on: The tipping point? 50, 000 publications Imagine how we could accelerate innovation, stimulate economic growth and all the solutions we need to live on a healthy and sustainable planet, if we were to open up our science fully and allow a free flow of scientific knowledge.” says Kamila Markram, a neuroscientist and the CEO of Frontiers, one of the largest Open Access science publishers in the world and a leader in the Open Science movement.…

Cytosis: Biology Content

  Help Me Write Some Biology Content Project Update #5: Cytosis: A Cell Biology Board Game by John Coveyou (Genius Games) Many of you have mentioned that you’d like to have an explanation of the biology behind Cytosis available… and I think that is an AWESOME plan. Every time I’ve taught the game to non-science players in the past, they say gameplay made even more sense (and was so much more enjoyable) when I explained the science as well. This…

Dietary lutein and pheromone-controlled brain development

Parahippocampal Cortex Mediates the Relationship between Lutein and Crystallized Intelligence in Healthy, Older Adults Reported as: How Leafy Greens May Protect The Brain From Aging “As a neuroprotective nutrient, lutein may support structure and function in neural membranes, and ultimately may support the cognitive functions that rely upon these neural membranes,” Marta Zamroziewicz, a graduate student in neuroscience and the study’s lead author, told The Huffington Post. The link from the sun’s anti-entropic virucidal energy to lutein and cell type…

Biological evolution as a philosophy, not a science

There is no indication in the abstracts that any of the presenters are going to address the facts that link quantised energy to polycombic ecological adaptation and virus-driven energy theft from hecatombic evolution to all pathology in all living genera. Virus-mediated archaeal hecatomb in the deep seafloor (2016) provides details on the hecatombin evolution of all patholgoy From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior (1996) provides details on the polycombic ecological adaptation of all healthy longevity. For these experts to address…

Hydrogen-Atom Transfer in DNA Base Pairs (3)

Video of our insignificance The video can be compared to what is known to serious scientists about the answer to Schrodinger’s question: What is Life? Excerpt:  But about forty years ago the Dutchman de Vries discovered that in the offspring even of thoroughly pure-bred stocks, a very small number of individuals, say two or three in tens of thousands, turn up with small but ‘jump-like’ changes, the expression ‘jump-like’ not meaning that the change is so very considerable, but that…

Cyclic cosmology and the stability of organized genomes

Current observations with a decaying cosmological constant allow for chaotic cyclic cosmology Abstract excerpt: ‘We present only a proof of principle, with no definite claim on the physical mechanism required for the present dark energy to decay.” My comment: Unlike nearly all theorists, they do not claim to be certain about any of the physical mechanisms that link atoms to ecosystems in the context of supercoiled DNA in the organized genomes of all living genera on this planet. For comparison,…

Nucleic acids: Stability of DNA/RNA

See also: RNA-mediated events and the “theory of everything.” Freeze-thaw cycles and nucleic acid stability: what’s safe for your samples? Conclusion: …you probably need to put a handful of your representative samples to the test in the context of your particular assay, to know what’s an acceptable number of freeze-thaw cycles for your purpose. My comment: Theoretical physicists and evolutionary theorists share a purpose. Their purpose is antithetical to accurate representations of what is known about the biologically-based stability of…

RNA directed DNA methylation and cell types

Cell type differentiation is included in all topics in biology, which is why it is important to understand what is currently known about top-down causation in the context of physics and chemistry. Taken together, physics, chemistry, and the conserved molecular mechanisms of biology link Drosophila to Octopuses and all other species on this planet via RNA-directed DNA methylation and RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions that differentiate cell types. See for examples: Let there be anti-entropic light (1) An antagonist led me…
