Ab initio cell wall invention, emergence, and evolution (2)

Peter Berean Answer my question above please, or we will have to part company. You are wasting my time and those of our readers when you make assertions that are false, and that you do not defend. These are all just a distraction and a waste of our time. Questions. 1) Are you saying that Viruses create energy? 2) Or that Viruses destroy energy? ———————————————- In response to your questions 1. Yes, God created the process of Entropy for our…

Innovative Neurotechnologies Link Sunlight to Precision Medicine

Brain Research Through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies “…is part of a new Presidential focus aimed at revolutionizing our understanding of the human brain.” It has been linked to the Presidential focus on Precision Medicine via nutrient-dependent RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions, which are essential to the stability of organized genomes. For example, fixation of amino acid substitutions in the context of the physiology of reproduction is linked to cell type differentiation in all individuals of all species via the conserved molecular mechanisms that…

A genetic variant refutes neo-Darwinism

Summary: They link a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) to a genetic variant that decreases viability of an embryo, without linking a nutrient-dependent RNA-mediated amino acid substitution to pheromone-controlled cell type differentiation that begins in the embryo and continues throughout the life history transitions of invertebrates and vertebrates. A Benefit of Failed Pregnancy? This genome-wide association study revealed “…a striking link between mitotic aneuploidy and a single nucleotide variant (SNP rs2305957) on chromosome 4 of maternal genomes.” Excerpt: “There’s this genetic…

Nutrient-dependent microRNAs control cell types

Nutrient-dependent/pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution: a model. Excerpt: “…the epigenetic ‘tweaking’ of the immense gene networks that occurs via exposure to nutrient chemicals and pheromones can now be modeled in the context of the microRNA/messenger RNA balance, receptor-mediated intracellular signaling, and the stochastic gene expression required for nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution. The role of the microRNA/messenger RNA balance (Breen, Kemena, Vlasov, Notredame, & Kondrashov, 2012; Duvarci, Nader, & LeDoux, 2008; Griggs et al., 2013; Monahan & Lomvardas, 2012) in adaptive evolution will…

RNA Mediated

Life: conserved ion and amino acid transporters

The vital question: Why is life the way it is? Excerpt: “…any sufficiently advanced chemiosmotic geochemistry is indistinguishable from life.” My comment: If the differences between viruses and cellular life are removed, the link from viral microRNAs to the anti-entropic epigenetic effects of nutrient-dependent microRNAs limits explanations of how the nutrient-dependent microRNA/messenger RNA balance leads to the pheromone-controlled biodiversity of species from microbes to humans via RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions that differentiate all cell types in all individuals of all…

Deeply ingrained thoughts

A universal trend of amino acid gain and loss in protein evolution Excerpt: “We cannot conceive of a global external factor that could cause, during this time, parallel evolution of amino acid compositions of proteins in 15 diverse taxa that represent all three domains of life and span a wide range of lifestyles and environments. Thus, currently, the most plausible hypothesis is that we are observing a universal, intrinsic trend that emerged before the last universal common ancestor of all…

Creating nothing but a theory (2)

Seeing the (UV) light: Previously undetected difference in human mutation rate unique to Europeans Excerpts from the discussion: Q: What’s the threshold at which UV-induced substitutions become UV-induced mutations? A: The balance of viral microRNAs to nutrient-dependent microRNAs is the determinant of controlled vs perturbed cell type differentiation in all cells of all individuals of all genera. Cell type differentiation is biophysically constrained by the nutrient-dependent chemistry of RNA-mediated protein folding, which is perturbed by mutations. That’s why uncontrolled mutations…

Quantum correlations/pseudoscience

A quantum advantage for inferring causal structure Preprint excerpt: “The causal inference schemes described here promise extensive applications in experiments exhibiting quantum eff ects. For instance, they can provide a test of whether the dynamics of a given open quantum system is Markovian or not [17{24]. This is because in a non-Markovian evolution, the environment acts as a common cause between the dynamical system at one time and the same system at a later time. Our inference schemes may also help…

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…

Luis P. Villarreal tells it like it is

Luis P. Villarreal has led the way towards discovery of the “origins of life.” He has helped to elucidate what is currently known about how the epigenetic landscape becomes the physical landscape of DNA in the organized genomes of species from microbes to humans. Kudos to Suzan Mazur for admitting that she missed learning about his works. Perhaps a few neo-Darwinian evolutionary theorists will also admit they have missed something very important about the role of viruses in cell type…
