Food energy-as-information, and consciousness

Informational Mode of the Brain Operation and Consciousness as an Informational Related System (6/7/19) Conclusion: consciousness could be fully described and understood in informational terms. In the same issue, the food that organisms eat is linked to human consciousness via natural selection for energy-dependent codon optimality. Codon optimality biophysically constrains viral latency via the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction and fixation of RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions. The amino acid substitutions link food energy as information to transgenerational epigenetic inheritance of healthy…

Animal welfare vs human ethology

Dairy cattle welfare as a result of human-animal relationship – a review …negligence in this area is one of the reasons for public disinformation regarding the level of animal welfare. Negligence in all areas of animal welfare can be attributed to human ethologists. The history of their pseudoscientific nonsense extends back through the decades to the late Irenhaus Eibl-Eibesfeleldt, who was the “father of human ethology.” His 848 page Human Ethology textbook is still the best example of how one book…

From photons to the proton motive force (2)

If you know someone who has linked differences in the energy of photons from the proton motive force to the physiology of reproduction and all biophysically constrained biodiversity, ask if they will attend Schrödinger at 75-The Future of Biology For contrast, touting genetic evolution is not the future of biology. See: Abstract: K06.00013 : A Path Integral Method for Analytically Tractable Inference of Evolutionary Dynamics Understanding the forces that shape genetic evolution is a subject of fundamental importance in biology…

Food energy-dependent cell type differentiation (3)

Food energy-dependent cell type differentiation (2) Summary: Until The Scientist provides the rest of the story, see our section on molecular epigenetics in: From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior (1996) and this refutation of neo-Darwinian pseudoscientific nonsense Nutrient-dependent/pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution: a model Micronutrients, Macro Impact …the work was related to human research conducted later by British epidemiologist David Barker that culminated in his eponymous 1990 hypothesis proposing that pre- and postnatal undernutrition, low birth weight, or premature birth can contribute…

Feng Zhang refutes theistic evolution

Nucleic acid detection with CRISPR-Cas13a/C2c2 My summary: Their ability to detect single base differences links differences in the energy of photons to the light-induced de novo creation of RNA and to RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions that differentiate all cell types in all individuals of all living genera. Any claims about mutations and evolution have already been replaced by what serious scientists have learned about natural selection for energy-dependent codon optimality and the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction, which biophysically constrains all…

Food supplement or licensed immunostimulant?

Glucan from Food Supplement to a Licensed Drug   Excerpt: “…β-glucan possesses a significant immunostimulating activity in a wide variety of species, including earthworms, shrimp, fish, chicken, rats, rabbits, guinea pigs, sheep, pigs, cattle, and, last but not least, humans. Based on these results, it has been concluded that β-glucan represents a type of immunostimulanting molecule that is actively spanning full evolutionary spectrum. Some experiments also show that β-glucan can help even in the protection of plants. β-Glucan is therefore…

Mystery machine vs model

See: Mystery machine vs medical intelligence Is nutrition the future of brain health? Excerpt: Steindler’s focus on the link between nutrition and neurodegenerative diseases is unique in the field. My comment: If he has limited his claims to those associated only with neurodegenerative diseases, his focus is too narrow. Unfortunately, narrow focus is common among specialists. Their focus makes them specialists, and without them generalists could not connect the specialties to healthy longevity and/or pathology. Not just brain health or…

History rewritten again

Aboriginal history rewritten again by ignorant political class Excerpt: Genetic clocks show they split from populations alive in East Asia today between 45,000 and 75,000 years ago. See also: Nutrient-dependent/pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution: a model Excerpt: These two reports (Grossman et al., 2013; Kamberov et al., 2013) tell a new short story of adaptive evolution. The story begins with what was probably a nutrient-dependent variant allele that arose in central China approximately 30,000 years ago. The effect of the allele is…

Nutritional epigenetics, exercise, and immune system integrity

Anti-inflammatory mechanism of dieting and fasting revealed Summary: Researchers have found that a compound produced by the body when dieting or fasting can block a part of the immune system involved in several inflammatory disorders such as type 2 diabetes, atherosclerosis, and Alzheimer’s disease. My comment: For the obvious link from nutrition and exercise to reproduction and RNA-mediated transgenerational epigenetic effects on the morphological and behavioral phenotypes of all species that must “move” to find food or to find mates…

The biologically-based origin of the mammalian placenta (2)

See also: The biologically-based origin of the mammalian placenta I’ll preface this follow-up on the origins of the mammalian placenta with comments that attest to foolishness of theoretical physicists who try to link Big Bang cosmology to neo-Darwinian theories about mutations and evolution. RPF Interviews Dr. Alexander Unzicker Excerpt 1)  “It annoys me too much to see another generation of physicists deterred by the dumb messy patchwork called the standard model of particle physics, that hides the basic problems physics…
