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…

Is it time to abandon The Second Law?

Experiment shows that arrow of time is a relative concept, not an absolute one The hot nucleus grew hotter while the cold nucleus grew colder. This observation did not violate the second law of thermodynamics, the group explains, because the second law assumes there are no correlations between particles. Who would have guessed that the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics was based on any assumption? See for comparison. See: Quantized energy links olfaction from angstroms to ecosystems parts 1 and 2…

Long-term adaptation replaces evolution (2)

The food energy-dependent “doubling up” on ‘junk DNA’ is biophysically constrained by the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction. The metabolism of food to species-specific pheromones links the conserved molecular mechanisms of RNA-mediated cell type differentiation in all individuals of all living genera to healthy longevity via what is known about amino acid substitutions in supercoiled DNA, which link energy-dependent changes in chirality to autophagy. Supercoiled DNA is far more dynamic than the ‘Watson-Crick’ double … Researchers have imaged in unprecedented detail the…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (10)

Summary: The entire evolution of the microbial world and the virus world, and the interaction between microbes and viruses and other life forms have been left out of the Modern Synthesis…— Eugene Koonin My comment: Viruses are not life forms. They steal the quantized energy that links sunlight to viral latency in the context of everything known to all serious scientists about the fact that Feedback loops link odor and pheromone signaling with reproduction See for comparison: Olfaction Warps Visual…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (5)

Summary: Emmy Noethe’s theorems were developed in the early 1900’s. Richard Feynman inadvertently or purposefully alluded to them as examples of human idiocy. Discover Magazine resurrected the examples of human idiocy in a 2017 article. For comparison, Choi et al., (2017) support the claims that intercellular and interkingdom communication is energy-dependent and controlled by the metabolism of food energy to pheromones. It is obvious that pheromones biophysically constrain the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA. That fact links everything currently known…

Milk-derived miRNAs, circulating microRNAs, DNA repair, and embryonic viability

Summary: “There is little acceptance of evolution as a concept among mainstream Muslim clerics in the Middle East, who believe it contradicts the story of creation in scripture…” The Bull Sperm MicroRNAome and the Effect of Fescue Toxicosis on Sperm MicroRNA Expression …the miRNA profile of mature ejaculated sperm may in fact have downstream consequences upon embryonic development. The potential for sperm miRNA affecting zygote development has recently been reported in the literature [18] and has interesting implications for the…

God’s shrinking role in salvation (3)

Summary: I believe there is a bipartisan trend that links conservative Republicans to survival of the species, but I don’t know for sure what will happen to the liberal Democrats. And, I can’t prove it!   Helicity and chirality https://www.facebook.com/ed.unverricht/videos/10155506720828729/ See also: God’s shrinking role in salvation (2) A Theory of Reality as More Than the Sum of Its Parts “Causal emergence is a way of claiming that your agent description is really real,” said Hoel, a postdoctoral researcher at…

Hard Science vs the neo-Darwinian “magic box”

Summary: Identical nucleotide sequences link energy-dependent changes in binding sites to different amino acids in different proteins. The binding sites are conserved in the orthologous mammalian genes. The in vivo structure of biological membranes and evidence for lipid domains Scientists investigate how the sense of smell works in bacteria Biogenic non-crystalline U(IV) revealed as major component in uranium ore deposits As presciently predicted in the works of Richard Feynman and Bruce McEwen, bacteria feed on something that allows them to…

Infections and age change the odor of wine and people

Summary: Food energy is a direct link from electron spin via changes, which link the sense of smell in bacteria from changes in angstroms to ecosystems in all living genera. Fruity with a note of fungus: How fungal infections change the aroma of wine …while bunch rot actually led to more positive aroma ratings due to the increased levels of fruity- and vanilla-like notes, powdery mildew decreased the level of pleasant notes in the wine, so that it received more negative…

From E. coli to monkeys and mankind: Theories vs models (2)

Dedicated to Dr. Tom Jordan and Priscilla Jordan on the day of their retirement from the Baptist ministry, May 28, 2017. They always encouraged me to learn more about the “Laws of Biology” and link the Laws from energy as information to all biodiversity on Earth via the physiology of reproduction.
