Sympatric speciation vs pseudoscientic nonsense (2)

This is how intermittent fasting protects us from viruses in the context of using stored fat for quantized energy-dependent RNA-mediated DNA repair. Fat cells converted into stem cells can repair any damaged tissues (video 3:48) Some whales use the molecular mechanisms of quantized energy-dependent RNA-mediated DNA repair during their migration, which is when they may not eat anything until after completing their route. See for details: Energy as information and constrained endogenous RNA interference (video 6:46) Feedback loops link quantized…

Host-derived creation of all pathology (2 of 2)

Summary: All serious scientists know that all epigenetic diversity is food energy-dependent and biophysically constrained by the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction. See for comparison: Jay R. Feierman: “Variation is not nutrient availability and the something that is doing the selecting is not the individual organism. A feature of an educated person is to realize what they do not know. Sadly, you don’t know that you have an incorrect understanding [of] Darwinian biological evolution.” A Bacterial Messenger Molecule Extends Healthspan …indole,…

Physicists: Desperate Acts (revisited)

Physicists: Desperate Acts Light-induced endogenous RNA interference in bioluminescent microbes links Schrodinger’s claims in “What is LIfe?” (1944) from a light-to-chemical pathway of information exchange in all living genera via amino acid substitutions in supercoiled DNA. All subsequent works on the evolutionary synthesis failed to link  the anti-entropic virucidal energy of sunlight to Darwin’s “conditions of life” from the claims of Schrodinger (1944) or the claims of any other serious scientist. Indeed, in the case of higher animals we know…

Autophagy is the antiphage defense strategy

The “Antiphage Defense Strategy” in Vibrio anguillarum is called autophagy by many serious scientists. It links nutrient energy-dependent pheromone-controlled quorum sensing to viral latency, healthy longevity, symbiosis, reproduction, and biodiversity from microbial species to humans. For an evolutionary approach to energy-dependent autophagy that fails to address any aspect of how virus-driven energy theft causes all pathology see: (12/7/16) Part I: Living together: The symbiosis of host-microbial interactions (12/7/16) See also: 12/7/16 ….McFall-Ngai tells the story of a symbiosis between the…

Conserved biophotonic emissions

Human high intelligence is involved in spectral redshift of biophotonic activities in the brain The tendency of the spectral redshift of glutamate-induced biophotonic emissions in this study is in the order of frog, mouse, chicken, pig, monkey, and human, which is almost consistent with the phylogenetic tree. Although the present imaging technique could not distinguish and determine what types of neurons emit what types of spectral biophotons or whether a neuron or type of neurons emit different spectral biophotons, we…

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…

RNA-mediated physics, chemistry, and molecular epigenetics (2)

9/16/15 This is an excellent introduction to speculation about how quantum mechanics might be linked from physics and chemistry to the conserved molecular mechanisms of epigenetically-effected biologically-based RNA-mediated cause and effect, which all serious scientists already know must link angstroms to ecosystems via the innate immune system, the physiology of reproduction, and supercoiled DNA. The introduction to speculation may help you to explain why more scientific progress has not been made since 1944, when Schrodinger claimed: Indeed, in the case…

Hydrogen-Atom Transfer in DNA Base Pairs

I requested a reprint of this article from the senior author on 10/29/15 and received it on 12/18/15.  Scientific progress moves fast, and Hydrogen-Atom Transfer in DNA Base Pairs (2) appears before the continuation of this post is linked to Hydrogen-Atom Transfer in DNA Base Pairs (3) and others in this series. Ultraviolet Absorption Induces Hydrogen-Atom Transfer in G⋅C Watson–Crick DNA Base Pairs in Solution [subscription required] It was reported as: Researchers observe one of the world’s fastest chemical reactions…

Natural selection: an anti-entropic force?

The second law of thermodynamics is the first law of psychology: evolutionary developmental psychology and the theory of tandem, coordinated inheritances: comment on Lickliter and Honeycutt (2003). This link opens the pdf Excerpt 1) Over the individual life span, what causes organisms to start out as single cells and then anti-entropically climb to dizzyingly greater heights of order (in the case of humans, to cell populations in the trillions built into intricate intercellular structures such as the eye, vasculature, and…

“New” quantum biology. Pirating the old

Jim Al-Khalili is a nuclear physicist. Luca Turin is a biologist. Both presenters link Schrödinger’s claims in What is Life? Which one knows most about it? Jim Al-Khalili  frames his presentation in the context of evolutionary theory. See the text or the 20-minute Video presentation: Jim Al-Khalili: How quantum biology might explain life’s biggest questions Luca Turin frames his presentation in the context of what is known to serious scientists about the biophysically constrained chemistry of nutrient-dependent RNA-mediated protein folding.
