Photonics in Forensics (8)

Light-activated carbon fixation, the resurrection of life in pear trees, and the resurrection of life in daffodils exemplifies how God’s pH-dependent peptide synthesis at the origin of life ~6000 years ago links microRNA-mediated  protein folding chemistry to protection of all organized genomes from the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA (mRNA). For instance, see: Integrative global co-expression analysis identifies Key MicroRNA-target gene networks as key blood biomarkers for obesity 3/10/22 They linked God’s Creation of energy-dependent transcription factor networks to computational…

microRNA-mediated replication timing (3)

miRNAs; a novel strategy for the treatment of COVID-19 6/28/21 Several previous studies have shown that host miRNAs play an anti-viral role and improve the treatment of patients with COVID-19. miRNAs by binding to the 3′-UTR or 5′-UTR of viral RNA play an important role in COVID-19-host interplay and viral replication. That fact makes it easier to convict Facebook of crimes against humanity because their censors prevent me from including links to autophagy.pro, and to microRNA.pro which expose the scientific…

Trashing the 2nd Law

Summary: Autophagy is the antiphage defense strategy. (December 8, 2016) Other definitions no longer apply. See: Experiment shows that arrow of time is a relative concept, not an absolute one Everything that theorists were taught to believe about entropy was probably based on the ridiculous assumption that “…there are no correlations between particles.” Everything known to serious scientists about energy-dependent autophagy shows that the creation of energy must be linked from the biophysically constrained physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction via feedback…

Life and death via chemical effects on photosynthesis

Summay: “…chemosignals are a promising approach both to modeling posttraumatic stress disorders in humans [36] and to searching for mehods of their treatment.” Serious scientists linked the sense of smell in bacteria from the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction in all living genera to our visual perception of energy and mass in the context of the space time continuum. The fact that food odors and pheromones biophysically constrain cell type differentiation in mammals was first placed into the context of [Pheromonal…

Theistic evolutionists fight back and lose (2)

For a historical perspective on the amount of ignorance theistic evolutionists and atheists have repeatedly displayed as they ignored everything known about the energy-dependent RNA-mediated de novo creation of genes, see: The heat shock response is self-regulated at both the transcriptional and posttranscriptional levels (1982) Thirty-five years later, there is another clear indication that theorists and atheists will never consider the fact that there must be an anti-entropic virucidal source of energy. See for example: HSP90 Shapes the Consequences of…

Energy-dependent purifying selection / autophagy (4)

Energy-dependent purifying selection / autophagy (3) My question: What is an abiotic environment? See: “abiotic factors found in aquatic systems may be things like water depth, pH, sunlight, turbidity (amount of water cloudiness), salinity (salt concentration), available nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorous, etc.), and dissolved oxygen (amount of oxygen dissolved in the water). Abiotic variables found in terrestrial ecosystems can include things like rain, wind, temperature, altitude, soil, pollution, nutrients, pH, types of soil, and sunlight.“ My question: When did Schrodinger’s negative…

Energy-dependent purifying selection / autophagy

This is a multi-part series. See also: Energy-dependent purifying selection / autophagy (2-6) Pain from Cells that Are Not Neurons Introduction: Recent research on pain shows a very surprising result. A new type of neuroplasticity has been discovered… My comment: It’s discovery does not make it a new type of neuroplasticity. Discoveries like this attest only to the ignorance of theorists who have never considered the role that virus-driven energy theft plays in all pathology. Excerpt 1) Injuries produce ATP…

Energy-dependent RNA methylation (10)

Plexciton Dirac points and topological modes Reported as: Scientists design energy-carrying particles called ‘topological plexcitons’ Excerpt: This should eventually enable engineers to create plexcitonic switches to distribute energy selectively across different components of a new kind of solar cell or light-harvesting device. My comment: “Single-residue insertion switches the quaternary structure and exciton states of cryptophyte light-harvesting proteins” links their discovery to the complexity of energy-dependent epigenetically-effected biophysically constrained protein folding chemistry in all living genera. Two epigenetic traps are required…

Ricki Lewis’ Time Machine (2)

See also: Can a Quirky Chromosome Create a Second Human Species? Reported here as: Ricki Lewis’ Time Machine Physics’s pangolin Trying to resolve the stubborn paradoxes of their field, physicists craft ever more mind-boggling visions of reality Excerpt 1) with my emphasis Physicists are deeply aware of the schizophrenic nature of their science and long to find a synthesis, or unification. Such is the goal of a so-called ‘theory of everything’. However, to non-physicists, these competing lines of thought, and…

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…
