What Fans of ‘Herd Immunity’ Don’t Tell You 10/19/20 …the White House has all but embraced herd immunity and has also poisoned the public with misinformation, making it all but impossible to get national, near-universal compliance with public health advice for the foreseeable future. Herd immunity exemplifies nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled ecological adaptations, which annoys neo-Darwinian theorists and Big Bang cosmologists, especially those who also are Trump-haters. See for comparison: Robust Filtering and Noise Suppression in Intragenic miRNA-Mediated Host Regulation 9/21/20 Specifically,…

The concept of a species (3)

Gene expression evidence for remodeling of lateral hypothalamic circuitry in cocaine addiction (2005) This remodeling of LH circuitry could contribute to the chronic deficit in reward function that has been hypothesized to drive the transition to drug addiction. Lena D. van der Stap discussed her role in the publication of this article, which failed to make any assumptions about mutations and/or evolution. James Kohl Did you co-author Gene expression evidence for remodeling of lateral hypothalamic circuitry in cocaine addiction McEwen told…

Polymaths and paradigm shifts: from Asimov to Bear (3)

Polymaths and paradigm shifts: from Asimov to Bear (2) “Teilhardism And The New Religion: A Thorough Analysis of the Teachings of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin”, p.18, TAN Books The evolutionist thesis has become more stringently unthinkable than ever before. — Dr. Wolfgang Smith (2015). A Chat with Information Scientist Pedro Marijuán (2017) I’ve based my informational scheme of the cell on this thinking of “distinction on the adjacent” — where molecular recognition is the essential phenomenon over which biological complexity…

The MicroRNAome Strikes Back: A Sokalian hoax (9)

Summary: Darwin’s “conditions of life” link the creation of sunlight from the creation of ATP to the creation of microRNAs and RNA-mediated cell type differentiation in the context of biophysically constrained viral latency. There is no magical creation of an RNA force field or protein force field that could be used to link the magic of evolution to biologically-based diversity in species from microbes to humans. RNA force field with accuracy comparable to state-of-the-art protein force fields The complex and…

Eutrophication and phosphorylated biodiversity

In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang (also yin–yang or yin yang, 陰陽 yīnyáng “dark–bright”) describe how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. Last night I dreamed that someone added color to this symbol and represented it as a spinning disk (in a publication from the Nature publishing group).  The specifics of the dream helped me…

Entertaining yourself to death

Summary: Food energy is required for the creation of enzymes that metabolize the food, which links the metabolism to the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction in species from microbes to humans via alternative splicings of pre-mRNAs, which are now called microRNAs in more than 65,000 published works. The horrid tradjedy of of yet another preventable death by suicide extends those works to preventing the cause of death of those killed by Stephen Paddock. Vegas gunman transferred $100K, set up cameras at…

Sexual communication signals: New Insights!

Nobody wants to belong to the party of losers. One of the best strategies in such a case is evidently an interpretation of the change as a gradual accumulation of knowledge while their work has always been at the cutting edge. — Kalevi Kull New insights in the evolution of sexual communication signals Abstract excerpt: Our research focuses on identifying a) the genes underlying sexual signals and responses in both sexes2-4, and b) ecological factors that may cause divergence in…

Autophagy: from pre-mRNAs to microRNAs, enhancers, QTLs et al.

Nothing known to serious scientists links anything except energy-dependent changes in chirality to autophagy and biodiversity via RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions that differentiate all cell types in all living genera. That fact forces pseudoscientists to invent new terms to confuse the biologically uninformed masses who were taught to believe in the neo-Darwinian pseudoscientific nonsense of mutation-driven evolution. Autophagy in the liver: functions in health and disease  See the section: Regulation of autophagy by amino acids See for comparison: From Fertilization…

RNAi: From magic bullet to billion dollar baby

UW-Madison technology enlisted in battle against hepatitis B DNA operates through RNA, and when RNA interference was discovered in 1998, it seemed like a magic bullet that could fight disease by specifically shutting down problematic genes. Before RNA interference was discovered pre-mRNAs were already linked to cell type differentiation in species from microbes to mammals. From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior (1996) Small intranuclear proteins also participate in generating alternative splicing techniques of pre-mRNA and, by this mechanism, contribute to…

Targeted Epigenetic Remodeling of Endogenous Loci by CRISPR/Cas9-Based Transcriptional Activators Directly Converts Fibroblasts to Neuronal Cells Excerpt: In this study, we demonstrate direct cellular reprogramming to induced neuronal cells through targeted activation of endogenous genes. Excerpt: Moreover, a recent study demonstrated that reprogramming efficiency can be limited by divergence to a competing cell identity (Treutlein et al., 2016). The molecular mechanisms and practical consequences of these limitations are largely unknown. My comment: They demonstrate what naturally must occur to link…
