Is it time to abandon The Second Law?

Experiment shows that arrow of time is a relative concept, not an absolute one The hot nucleus grew hotter while the cold nucleus grew colder. This observation did not violate the second law of thermodynamics, the group explains, because the second law assumes there are no correlations between particles. Who would have guessed that the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics was based on any assumption? See for comparison. See: Quantized energy links olfaction from angstroms to ecosystems parts 1 and 2…

Life in your UV light-constrained galaxy

A measurement of the z = 0 UV background from Hα fluorescence Despite the substantial systematic uncertainty that affects our measurement, our work has demonstrated the potential that future MUSE observations have in constraining the intensity of the UVB in the local Universe. This is a report on the Multi Unit Spectroscopic Explorer (MUSE) instrument. The preposterous claim is not supported with experimental evidence that observations made in the context of the instrument somehow constrain the intensity of UV light. That unsupported…

Anti-entropic virucidal energy as information

 How Can Physics Underlie the Mind? Top-Down Causation in the Human Context by George Ellis (p. 404) Repeated thousands of times over geological timescales, it is this relentless repetition of the top-down process of adaptive selection [29] that gives Darwinian evolution its enormous power. Theorists never seem to ask questions about where the enormous power came from or where it goes when organisms die. They seem to think that relentless repetition of biophysically constrained energy-dependent protein biosynthesis and degradation automagically…

Expunging the distinguished public

Royal Society Expunges Public From Evo Record Many of the attendee-participants were, in fact, more distinguished than many of the actual speakers. So the audience came to be heard as well as to listen. But the official recording (now posted) has been wiped clean of public comment — the most robust part of the meeting — and what we are left with, with few exceptions, is a series of academic lectures and old science. Thanks for continuing to make the…

Energy-dependent de novo creation and neurogenesis (2)

See also: Energy-dependent de novo creation and neurogenesis 12/7/16 Atlas of the RNA universe takes shape Excerpt: MicroRNA are very mysterious. They are really relics of the RNA world—pieces of RNA that are highly reactive, very small and which pair and bind other RNA and facilitate catalytic reactions,” Mangone says. “We don’t know much about them—where they come from or how they regulate gene expression, but they are very misregulated in many diseases.

Demoncrats fight polycombic ecological adaptation

Comey sent Congress letter on Clinton emails despite DOJ warning it would breach policy Excerpt: …we don’t ordinarily tell Congress about ongoing investigations, but here I feel an obligation to do so given that I testified repeatedly in recent months that our investigation was completed,” Comey wrote, referring to the Bureau’s previous investigation into Clinton’s private email server. “I also think it would be misleading to the American people were we not to supplement the record.

RNA methylation, behavior, and disease

Epigenetics and Genetics of Viral Latency by Paul M. Lieberman (May 11, 2016)   My comment: Lieberman succinctly confirmed the fact that …viral latency is responsible for life-long pathogenesis and mortality risk… His simplistic conclusion also attests to the fact that there is no defined boundary between epigenetics and genetics. Epigenetic effects on metabolic networks must be linked to genetic networks via the energy-dependent innate immune system. That’s how all serious scientists knew they would need to link angstroms to ecosystems…

RNA-mediated physics, chemistry, and molecular epigenetics

RNA-mediated physics, chemistry, and molecular epigenetics Genetics and Genomics May 11-12, 2016 Published on 3 May 2016  See the full size poster displayed on Figshare.com Abstract: Olfaction and the innate immune system link energy as information from the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of supercoiled DNA. The sun’s biological energy is the source of the information that links angstroms to ecosystems via physics, chemistry, and molecular epigenetics. RNA-mediated protein folding chemistry and amino acid substitutions link the anti-entropic quantized…

Hydrogen-Atom Transfer in DNA Base Pairs (4)

Historical perspective: Behold James Vaughn Kohl. Ecological adaptation occurs via the epigenetic effects of nutrients on alternative splicings of pre-mRNA which result in amino acid substitutions that differentiate all cell types of all individuals of all species. The control of the differences in cell types occurs via the metabolism of the nutrients to chemical signals that control the physiology of reproduction. These facts do not refute evolution; they simply refute the ridiculous theory of mutation-initiated natural selection that most people…
