Quantum Darwinism (10)

Evolution after whole genome duplication: teleost microRNAs 4/19/21 …provides the first genome-wide, multi-species analysis of the mechanisms influencing metazoan miRNA evolution after whole genome duplication. Shows that energy must be linked from biophysically constrained viral latency to ecological adaptations. For other refutations of neo-Darwinian pseudoscietific nonsense follow the scientific progress via a search for microRNA as the number of indexed publications continues to rise at a rate of 1000+ each month. For a recent obfuscation of facts in a curated…

Quantum Darwinism (3)

“Quantum biology” is quantum Darwinism Starting from…discovery of quantum coherence in low-temperature photosynthetic microbes in 2007, quantum coherence is emerging as a general principle of biological systems. See: MicroRNAs organize intrinsic variation into stem cell states 3/5/20 …naturally arising cell-to-cell variation, sometimes described as stochastic fluctuation, is in fact coherently organized biology. Theorists chose neo-Darwinian pseudoscientific nonsense about beneficial mutations and evolution via natural selection across billions to millions of years instead of the explanatory power of quantum Darwinism. Their ignorance…

Pheromones protect us from viruses (10)

Twitter Profile: MicroRNA.pro, http://Autophagy.pro & http://RNA-mediated.com link subatomic particles from pH-dependent peptide synthesis to sympatric speciation and healthy ecosystems. Before 4/6/21, I had contributed 40,000 tweets @microRNApro to support claims about how light-activated carbon fixation is linked to healthy longevity in more than 118,400 indexed publications that mention ‘microRNA.’ For a historical perspective on the development of healthy ecosystems, see: Pheromonal Regulation of Genetic Processes: Research on the House Mouse (Mus musculus L.) (1994) “The specificity of pheromonal regulation depends…

Impeaching the God of Abraham (7)

MicroRNA biogenesis and their functions in regulating stem cell potency and differentiation 3/9/16 …summarizes the basic biogenesis and mode of actions of miRNAs, recent progress and discoveries of miRNAs in cellular reprogramming, stem cell differentiation and cellular communication, as well as miRNAs in CSCs. MicroRNAs organize intrinsic variation into stem cell states 3/5/20 was linked to prevention of  the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA in CSCs via the fact that “…naturally arising cell-to-cell variation, sometimes described as stochastic fluctuation, is…

The concept of a species (1)

In an attempt to discuss The misleading evidence that fooled scientists for decades I wrote: The concept of a species is clearly seen in the context of Darwin’s “conditions of life” and sympatric speciation. What organisms eat is linked from their physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction to biophysically constrained viral latency and all extant biodiversity via energy-dependent changes in base pairs and fixation of amino acid substitutions in the organized genomes of species from microbes to humans. See Nutrient-dependent Pheromone-Controlled Ecological Adaptations: From…

Biologically uninformed science idiot: Self-defense (2)

Summary: “Construction of automata” is the operative phrase. But you must be willing to believe that the automata create themselves outside the context of the creation of sunlight and light-activated endogenous substrates in all cell types of all living genera. Causation, constructors and codes A formal definition of codes in general, and organic codes in particular, allows the relational diagram to be extended so as to capture this translation of formal cause into process. The extended relational diagram is used…

Biologically uninformed science idiot: Self-defense (1)

I recently published a review of nutritional epigenetics. It was an invited review that was returned in 2014 without review so I placed it on a preprint server as: Nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled ecological adaptations: from atoms to ecosystems In the past 4 years, others have linked the creation of subatomic particles from quantum physics to classical physics. Now, the slight change in the title makes more sense.  See: Nutrient-dependent Pheromone-Controlled Ecological Adaptations: From Angstroms to Ecosystems The review already is forcing biologically…

The eternal significance of microRNAs and the Vietnam Memorial (1)

Researchers who believe in the mutation-driven evolution of species and mutation-driven differences in human populations have invented another ridiculous hypothesis. Now, they believe in mathematical models that infer: Cultural hitchhiking and competition between patrilineal kin groups explain the post-Neolithic Y-chromosome bottleneck In human populations, changes in genetic variation are driven not only by genetic processes, but can also arise from cultural or social changes. An abrupt population bottleneck specific to human males has been inferred across several Old World (Africa,…

Complexity: Routes and Patterns (5)

Summary: Complexity does not emerge.Top-down causation is energy-dependent. Geoge FR Ellis, who co-authored The Large Scale Structure of Space-Time (1973) with physicist Stephen Hawking, just refuted every aspect of neo-Darwinian pseudoscientific nonsense and Big Bang cosmology by linking the creation of the sun’s anti-entropic virucidal energy to the complex metabolic regulatory networks of cellular function. Bacterial self-organization: co-enhancement of complexification and adaptability in a dynamic environment (2003) Learning from Bacteria about Natural Information Processing (2009) Focusing on the energy, matter,…

From quantum physics to quantum souls (2)

Summary: Natural selection for food energy-dependent codon optimality links the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction to all biodiversity on Earth via gene splicing and energy-dependent RNA-mediated fixation of amino acid substitutions. How humans and apes are different, and why it matters (2018) …the most distinctive feature of humanity is its ability to significantly alter ecosystems. That exemplifies human idiocy. The most distinctive features of humanity are biophysically constrained by what people eat and the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction. See: Nothing in Biology…
