An evolutionary theory killer

A single base change refutes theistic evolution (2)

Announcing publication of a model that links the creation of quantized energy from changes in subatomic particles to biophysically constrained viral latency and sympatric speciation in all living genera.

Nutrient-dependent Pheromone-Controlled Ecological Adaptations: From Angstroms to Ecosystems

This angstroms to ecosystems model of ecological adaptation links nutrient energy-dependent epigenetic effects on base pairs and amino acid substitutions to pheromone-controlled changes in the microRNA/messenger RNA balance and chromosomal rearrangements via the physiology of reproduction in species from microbes to humans.

The invited review of nutritional epigenetics was returned without review and the preprint was posted 4 years ago as:

Nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled ecological adaptations: from atoms to ecosystems

The only significant change to the manuscript was a change in the title. Atoms to ecosystems became Angstroms to Ecosystems when quantized energy-dependent changes in angstroms were linked to ecological adaptation by what is known to all serious scientists in this 2014 parody.

George Church and others may have been the first to place the naturally occurring biophysically constrained energy-dependent processes of ecological adaptations into the context of a patent. (It is extremely unusual for anyone to attempt to patent a naturally occurring process.) That explains why there is no patent litigation, which still plagues those who claimed to discover the CRISPR-Cas 9 innate immune system of bacteria, which biophysically constrains viral latency and prevents the degradation of messenger RNA that links the energy-dependent creation of bacteria to the virus-driven creation of archaea and L-forms. All biophysically constrained virus-driven pathology has since been placed back into the context of embryogenesis and the dynamics of energy-dependent gene expression at the level of single-cell resolution as if bacteria somehow evolved into humans.

Nature vs Science and Autophagy.pro

Conclusion: The anti-entropic virucidal energy of sunlight links food energy directly from the innate immune system to all morphological and behavioral diversity. It all about energy. It’s all about the creation of enzymes. It’s all about the base pairs.


Until the day that I launched Autophagy.pro, I had only one or two Facebook posts that were marked as spam. Since December 11, 2017, I have had ~5 posts marked as spam.

See for example: This comment was marked as spam at Ciência Biomédica, when I responded to  Synthetic protein packages its own genetic material and evolves

Packaging is energy-dependent and biophysically constrained. Nothing evolves. The concept is foolish. See: A universal trend of amino acid gain and loss in protein evolution 
Excerpt: Amino acid composition of proteins varies substantially between taxa and, thus, can evolve.
 
Laboratory co-oximeters determine the %HbO2 (%SaO2 ) by measuring the amount a specific frequency of light is absorbed as it passes through a known volume of blood. In contrast, pulse oximetry (SpO2) measures the change in light absorbed at systole and diastole. This allows the pulse oximeter to distinguish between the constant amount of light absorbed by the tissue, bone, venous blood, etc. from the arterial blood (the blood in the volume change due to the pulse).
 
The amount of light absorbed by the tissue, bone, venous blood etc., varies in the context of hydrogen-atom transfer in DNA base pairs in solution. Blood gas analysis in the medical laboratory links differences in hydrogen (H2) — as in H2O from quantized energy-dependent changes in the potential of hydrogen (pH) to all biophysically constrained biodiversity.
 

Measuring pH links what is known about nutritional epigenetics from the innate immune system to healthy longevity via everything known about autophagy. The measurements can be compared in the context of  what is known about virus-driven energy theft, which links stress from the replication of viruses to all pathology via critical care testing of other blood gas analytes such as pCO2, pO2, Sodium, Potassium, Chloride, Calcium, Glucose, Lactic Acid, and Hematocrit.

My comment to the Science site (submitted 6/14/13 published 6/20/13):

In my model species-specific epistasis is nutrient-dependent and pheromone-controlled. An additional example of this showed up earlier this week in the context of the epigenetically-effected microRNA/messenger RNA balance: “miR-124 controls male reproductive success in Drosophila”

miR-14 acts in neurosecretory cells in the adult brain to control metabolism and miR-124 acts in the context of brain-directed neuroendocrine control of sexual differentiation and male pheromone production, which is controlled in mammals by gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) neurosecretory cells of the hypothalamus.

We can anticipate extension to mammals of the Drosophila model from the abstract of a forthcoming Science article: “MiR-200b and miR-429 Function in Mouse Ovulation and Are Essential for Female Fertility.” Given our earlier work in the context of molecular epigenetics and the concept of alternative splicings and sexual differentiation in Drosophila and C. elegans, I suspect we will see evidence for nutrient-dependent adaptive evolution of GnRH pulse frequency-controlled LH secretion and pheromone-controlled female fertility in mice.

If I’m correct, this evidence will link glucose and pheromones to feedback loops that control reproduction in invertebrates and vertebrates. (See Nutrient–dependent / pheromone–controlled adaptive evolution: a model). Model organisms exemplify these feedback loops in microbes, nematodes, insects, and other mammals. The mouse to human example that Kamberov et al., and Grossman et al., detailed is the most telling.

A single amino acid substitution appears to result in what seem to be nutrient-dependent changes in the thermodynamics of intracellular signaling, intranuclear interactions, stochastic gene expression, and selection for phenotype via organism-level thermoregulation in a human population that arose in what is now central China during the past ~30K years.

Using a model that integrates what is known about the common molecular mechanisms may help establish whether adaptive mutations lead to thermodynamic effects on organism-level thermoregulation and epistasis, or whether epigenetic effects of nutrients and their metabolism to species-specific pheromones that control reproduction via changes in the microRNA/messenger RNA balance are the driving force behind adaptive evolution in species from microbes to man.

See: Obligatory role of hypothalamic neuroestradiol during the estrogen-induced LH surge in female ovariectomized rhesus monkeys
Reported as:  Estrogen discovery could shed new light on fertility problems December 12, 2017

Estradiol builds in the bloodstream until it reaches a concentration that causes a surge of the hypothalamic and pituitary hormones, including one called luteinizing hormone, which in turn trigger an ovary to release an egg.

“It’s a feedback loop…

The feedback loop is food energy-dependent and pheromone-controlled.
See: Feedback loops link odor and pheromone signaling with reproduction
Energy-dependent autophagy is the link from feedback loops to ecological adaptation. Science Magazine now has the opportunity to challenge the pseudoscientific nonsense of published works from the Nature Publishing Group. There is no need to consider mutations and evolution outside the context of virus-driven energy theft, which links the degradation of messenger RNA from mutations to all pathology.

Darwin probably anticipated the insemination of population genetics that led to the bastardization of his detailed observations in the “Modern Synthesis.” He politely insisted that ‘conditions of life’ be considered before natural selection.

There are two ‘conditions of life.’ It is nutrient-dependent and pheromone-controlled. Rosenberg and Queitsch now note the work with Dobzhansky’s rarely acknowledged claim: “I am a creationist and an evolutionist.” They also declare the need for “Deep understanding of the mechanisms that generate variation at the molecular level…”

Deep understanding of the ‘conditions of life’ does not come from theory.

Problems with the “modern synthesis” now lead us back to the facts about biologically-based cause and effect that Darwin and Dobzhansky approached with humility, which are the same biological facts that evolutionists approached with ignorance about behavioral affects and the arrogance that accompanies that ignorance. Rosenberg and Queitsch echo the sentiments of those who have been subjected to academic suppression.

Clearly, however, “nothing in evolution makes sense except in the light of biology” is not an exaggeration. It is a common sense statement about the biologically plausible genesis of functional cell types. Population genetics and evolutionary theories abandoned the biophysical constraints of ecological variation and the physiology of reproduction, which enable epigenetically-effected nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled receptor-mediated ecological adaptations and species diversity via the complexities of protein folding and niche construction.

It’s time for biophysicists to tell theorists and pathologists how to differentiate between theories about the genesis of different cell types and the biological facts about the nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled ecological adaptations that enable the genesis of different cell types in individuals of different species. Simply put, it’s time to stop trying to explain ecological adaptations in the context of mutations and evolution.

The retraction of Oligoarginine peptides slow strand annealing and assist non-enzymatic RNA replication attests to the amount of pseudoscientific nonsense published by the “Nature Publications Group” during the past few decades.
See: Retraction Watch

In retrospect, we were totally blinded by our belief [in our findings]…we were not as careful or rigorous as we should have been (and as Tivoli was) in interpreting these experiments.

How many others who published via the Nature Publishing Group were blinded by their belief in pseudoscientific nonsense that failed to link the food energy-dependent creation of enzymes and the creation of RNA from blood gas analyses to patient outcomes?
See for comparison: Dependence of RNA synthesis in isolated thymus nuclei on glycolysis, oxidative carbohydrate catabolism and a type of “oxidative phosphorylation” (1964)

The synthesis of RNA in isolated thymus nuclei is ATP dependent.

Who did not know that? How did non-enzymatic RNA replication become a non-energy-dependent consideration for anyone associated with the Nature Publishing Group?
See for comparison: Mechanisms of mTORC1 activation by RHEB and inhibition by PRAS40

Here we present the 3.0 ångström cryo-electron microscopy structure of mTORC1 and the 3.4 ångström structure of activated RHEB–mTORC1. RHEB binds to mTOR distally from the kinase active site, yet causes a global conformational change that allosterically realigns active-site residues, accelerating catalysis.

The global conformational change that allosterically realigns active-site residues (i.e., amino acids), accelerating catalysis, is an energy-dependent change.
Reported as:  Scientists unlock structure of mTOR, a key cancer cell signaling protein

1) Like many proteins, mTOR is an enzyme, which binds to target molecules called substrates in a precise way to hasten chemical reactions. Specifically, it is a type of kinase, which removes phosphates (P) from ATP, the cell’s energy currency, and places them on other molecules.

The creation of the enzymatic activity of mTOR is quantized energy-dependent and it links the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction to biophysically constrained viral latency via autophagy. The retractions of Jack Szostak’s nonsense about the magical creation of enzymes after the energy of life emerged and organisms subsequently evolved in the context of differences in H2 to all biodiversity on Earth, can be placed into the context works by serious scientists.

2)  …mTOR is an enzyme, which binds to target molecules called substrates in a precise way to hasten chemical reactions. Specifically, it is a type of kinase, which removes phosphates (P) from ATP, the cell’s energy currency, and places them on other molecules. From that 2013 study, which took more than five years to complete, the team learned some key things about the protein, such as what the ATP-binding site looks like…

The study that took more than 5 years to complete was published as: mTOR kinase structure, mechanism and regulation

The structures also reveal active-site residues and conformational changes that underlie inhibitor potency and specificity.

They had experimental evidence of energy-dependent changes in active-site residues (i.e., amino acids). They subsequently failed to link anything known to serious scientists about the energy-dependent changes from angstroms to ecosystems in all living genera via the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction. They seemingly ignored all claims about RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions in the context of autophagy, which links base pair changes from changes in the microRNA/messenger RNA balance to RNA editing.

Face the facts, Jack (Szostak) and others. Cell type differentiation is food energy-dependent and biophysically constrained at every level of examination. Biophysical constraints on viral latency are required for ecological adaptation. The anti-entropic virucidal energy of sunlight links food energy directly from the innate immune system to all morphological and behavioral diversity. It’s all about energy. It’s all about the creation of enzymes. It’s all about the base pairs.

That is what we detailed in the molecular epigenetics section of this 1996 Hormones and Behavior review.

Nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled ecological adaptations: from atoms to ecosystems

The plausibility and ecological validity of Kohl’s Laws in the context of Darwin’s ‘conditions of life’ can be compared to theories about biologically-based cause and effect in the context of species diversity. In mammals, for example, the explanatory power of a model of ecological variation and biophysically constrained nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled ecological adaptations became clear with companion papers published in 2013. See for review [30].

The companion papers [162-163] told a new short story of ecological adaptations. In the context of climate change and changes in diet, the story began with what probably was a nutrient-dependent base pair change and a variant epiallele that arose in a human population in what is now central China. Apparently, the effect of the epiallele was adaptive and it was manifested in the context of an effect on sweat, skin, hair, and teeth. In another mammal, such as the mouse, the effect on sweat, skin, hair, and teeth is probably due to a nutrient-dependent epigenetic effect on hormones responsible for the tweaking of immense gene networks that metabolize nutrients to pheromones. The pheromones appear to control the nutrient-dependent epigenetically-effected hormone-dependent organization and hormone-activation of reproductive sexual behavior in mammals such as mice and humans, but also in invertebrates and in microbes as previously indicated.

The ecological adaptations, which appear to be manifested in the human population are detailed in these two reports [162-163]. The ecological adaptations are likely to be nutrient-dependent and pheromone-controlled. If so, ecological variation probably leads to ecological, social, neurogenic, and socio-cognitive niche construction, which is manifested in increasing organismal complexity and species diversity. If not, there may be something as yet unknown about mutations and evolution that makes sense in the light of what is known about nutritional epigenetics and the molecular biology of species from microbes to man.

Autophagy links the food energy-dependent pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction to biophysically constrained viral latency and ecological adaptations. Nutrient stress and/or social stress link constraint-breaking mutations to all pathology via quantum effects in all biological systems.

From base editing to RNA editing (2)

Summary: The link from the creation of the sun’s anti-entropic virucidal energy and the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction to fixation of RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions in the organized genomes of all living genera is all that is required to claim adaptation for comparison to Koonin’s moronic assertion that the amino acid composition of proteins varies because the composition evolved.
Digital reconstruction of the Ceprano calvarium (Italy), and implications for its interpretation

A “fresh” (i.e., not yet “fossil”) bone can be plastically deformed before it breaks because it is still rich in collagen and because the calcium crystals that constitute large part of the bony matrix are not yet substituted by other minerals, as happens during the process of mineralization34. Such a diagenetic process may occur in environments that are rich in water, like a riverbed or a perilacustrine paleosol; the latter was probably the case in the Ceprano area5.

The virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA links the diagenetic process in living tissue links to the fossil record via changes that appear to have occurred during the past 5-10,000 years.
See for instance: MicroRNA-32 promotes calcification in vascular smooth muscle cells: Implications as a novel marker for coronary artery calcification
The increased level of calcification in smooth muscle cells, which is associated with increased rates of coronary artery calcification is a clear indicator that the proliferation of viruses in organized genomes causes the negative supercoiling of DNA, which serious scientists have linked to all pathology.
See also: A Post Mortem Case Study: Diffuse Pulmonary Ossification and Sudden Death
Case studies have no explanatory power outside the context of models that link electrons to ecosystems in all living genera. In this case study, it is clear that the pulmonary ossification and sudden death can be placed into the context of my model of nutritional epigenetics.
See: Nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled ecological adaptations: from atoms to ecosystems

This atoms to ecosystems model of ecological adaptations links nutrient-dependent epigenetic effects on base pairs and amino acid substitutions to pheromone-controlled changes in the microRNA / messenger RNA balance and chromosomal rearrangements. The nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled changes are required for the thermodynamic regulation of intracellular signaling, which enables biophysically constrained nutrient-dependent protein folding; experience-dependent receptor-mediated behaviors, and organism-level thermoregulation in ever-changing ecological niches and social niches. Nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled ecological, social, neurogenic and socio-cognitive niche construction are manifested in increasing organismal complexity in species from microbes to man. Species diversity is a biologically-based nutrient-dependent morphological fact and species-specific pheromones control the physiology of reproduction. The reciprocal relationships of species-typical nutrient-dependent morphological and behavioral diversity are enabled by pheromone-controlled reproduction. Ecological variations and biophysically constrained natural selection of nutrients cause the behaviors that enable ecological adaptations. Species diversity is ecologically validated proof-of-concept. Ideas from population genetics, which exclude ecological factors, are integrated with an experimental evidence-based approach that establishes what is currently known. This is known: Olfactory/pheromonal input links food odors and social odors from the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of DNA in the organized genomes of species from microbes to man during their development.

Attempts to support theories about random mutations and evolution have failed miserably and have largely been replaced with facts about energy-dependent RNA-mediated cell type differentiation.
See: RNA Editing Possible with CRISPR-Cas13

The tool itself could be further developed, adds computational biologist Eugene Koonin of the National Center for Biotechnology Information who also was not involved in the study. “This paper is not the end of the road,” he says. It’s possible that Cas13b could be fused to a variety of editing enzymes that would allow a range of different sequence changes. The possibilities are numerous, Koonin says, and “the best is still to come.”

This paper is the end of the road for pseudoscientists and biologically uninformed theorists, like Eugene Koonin, who made this ridiculous claim in 2005:
Amino acid composition of proteins varies substantially between taxa and, thus, can evolve. –Jordan et al., (2005) A universal trend of amino acid gain and loss in protein evolution
See for comparison: 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… (2015) — Eugene Koonin
See also Koonin’s attack on all models of ecological adaptation: Splendor and misery of adaptation, or the importance of neutral null for understanding evolution (2016)

…population genetic theory, combined with the data of comparative genomics, clearly indicates that such a “pan-adaptationist” approach is a fallacy. The proper question is: how has this sequence evolved? And the proper null hypothesis posits that it is a result of neutral evolution: that is, it survives by sheer chance provided that it is not deleterious enough to be efficiently purged by purifying selection. To claim adaptation, the neutral null has to be falsified.

The link from the creation of the sun’s anti-entropic virucidal energy and the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction to fixation of RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions in the organized genomes of all living genera is all that is required to claim adaptation for comparison to Koonin’s moronic assertion that the amino acid composition of proteins varies because the composition evolved.
Each time a new claim attests to the facts about energy-dependent RNA-mediated biophysically constrained cause and effect, remember how long those facts have been placed on hold by people like Eugene Koonin and Jay R. Fiereman, who is the moderator of the International Society for Human Ethology’s Yahoo Group.
See this attempt to discuss mysterious DNA changes with Jay R. Feierman who on 7/25/13 wrote:

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.

All DNA modifications are energy-dependent and RNA-mediated. Publications in Science and Nature attest to the foolishness of those who have tried to link base editing and RNA editing to human cell type differentiation without starting with the fact that RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions are food energy-dependent.
Clearly there are no mysterious stress-linked DNA modifications. Nutrient stress and/or social stress cause the proliferation of viruses. Typically the proliferation of viruses is biophysically constrained by food energy and the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction in species from microbes to humans.
See “Cytosis” for the game-ending details that placed the nonsense about neutral null falsification back into the historical perspective of the “Dark Ages.”

Evidence for beneficial mutations

We sought to understand what proportion of the genomic changes in the non-mutator populations was adaptive, and how that proportion changed over time. One line of evidence derives from the expectation that synonymous substitutions—point mutations in protein-coding genes that do not affect the amino-acid sequence—are neutral and should therefore accumulate at a rate equal to the underlying mutation rate20,35. This expectation is not strictly true owing to selection on codon usage, RNA folding, and other effects, but it is generally thought that such selection is extremely weak, affects only a small fraction of sites at risk for synonymous mutations, or both 36,37.

RNA-mediated protein folding chemistry is biophysically constrained. It is nutrient energy-dependent and biodiversity is controlled by the energy-dependent physiology of reproduction. In 2015, Lenski’s group admitted to their lie about the beneficial mutations, with the claim “This expectation is not strictly true owing to selection on codon usage…”
No beneficial mutations have been found by serious scientists. But Lenski’s group clearly indicated they would continue to lie about all aspects of energy-dependent biodiversity. They hoped to make it appear that all energy-dependent biodiversity emerged and then automagically evolved. If they could do that, they knew that their idiot minions were not likely to examine selection for energy-dependent codon usage. But then,
See for comparison: The dynamics of molecular evolution over 60,000 generations
After 10,000 more generations, Lenski’s group reported that standard models of mutation-driven evolution has not been supported by their experimental evidence. Instead, they placed their results into the context of natural selection for energy-dependent codon usage and long-term adaptation, which obviously occurred outside the context of mutation–selection balance and neutral mutation accumulation.
They clearly indicated that the complexity of ecological variation and energy-dependent ecological adaptation must be considered before reporting anything in the context of natural genetic variation. Simply put, they refuted all the pseudoscientific nonsense their past claims caused to be touted by other biologically uninformed theorists. They reported that ecological adaptation occurs outside the context of the mutations and evolution.
But see: Molecular evolution: No escape from the tangled bank

Ecological interactions emerge spontaneously in an experimental study of bacterial populations cultured for 60,000 generations, and sustain rapid evolution by natural selection.

The claim that there is no escape from the tangled bank is true. Joshua B. Plotkin took Lenki’s group’s refutation of mutation-driven evolution and placed it back into the context of the spontaneous emergence of energy-dependent ecological interactions. And then, he again touted the nonsense about evolution by natural selection.
See also: Rapid and Inexpensive Evaluation of Nonstandard Amino Acid Incorporation in Escherichia coli (2017)

…we developed a toolkit for characterizing any Escherichia coli OTS that reassigns the amber stop codon (TAG). It assesses OTS performance by comparing how the fluorescence of strains carrying plasmids encoding a fused RFP-GFP reading frame, either with or without an intervening TAG codon, depends on the presence of the nsAA. We used this kit to (1) examine nsAA incorporation by seven different OTSs, (2) optimize nsAA concentration in growth media, (3) define the polyspecificity of an OTS, and (4) characterize evolved variants of amberless E. coli with improved growth rates.

Even with the tools available, which have refuted all ridiculous theories of mutation-driven evolution, the claims that variants “evolved” continues to plague all serious scientists. It seems that placing the claims that variants evolved into the context of natural selection for energy-dependent codon optimality and the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction in all living genera serves no purpose. However, even if biologically uninformed science idiots are not willing to admit that top-down causation requires first consideration for the energy source, there is hope for the future. Most people intuitively understand that the food energy from what organisms eat must be linked to the metabolism of food and the metabolism of food to species-specific pheromones is the only known link from the physiology of reproduction to all biophysically constrained biodiversity in the context of viral latency.
Epigenetic effects must be linked to affects on behavior and the difference between an effect on hormones and an affect of hormones on behavior must be considered in the context of how food odors and pheromones are linked to the physiology of human reproduction by serious scientists.

Energy-dependent epigenetic translation to mRNA stability

Negative selection in humans and fruit flies involves synergistic epistasis

Negative selection against deleterious alleles produced by mutation influences within-population variation as the most pervasive form of natural selection.

Naturally occurring positive selection for energy-dependent codon optimality replaced every aspect of neo-Darwinian theories that linked natural selection from mutations to evolution of increasing organismal complexity. Positive selection for epigenetically-effected beneficial alleles links the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of supercoiled DNA via nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled metabolic networks and genetic networks.
Everything from atoms to ecosystems was included in this invited review of nutritional epigenetics because all serious scientists know that organisms survive on food energy and that species exemplify the pheromone-controlled reproduction and chromosomal inheritance that ensures survival of all living genera.
See: Nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled ecological adaptations: from atoms to ecosystems

This atoms to ecosystems model of ecological adaptations links nutrient-dependent epigenetic effects on base pairs and amino acid substitutions to pheromone-controlled changes in the microRNA / messenger RNA balance and chromosomal rearrangements. The nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled changes are required for the thermodynamic regulation of intracellular signaling, which enables biophysically constrained nutrient-dependent protein folding; experience-dependent receptor-mediated behaviors, and organism-level thermoregulation in ever-changing ecological niches and social niches. Nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled ecological, social, neurogenic and socio-cognitive niche construction are manifested in increasing organismal complexity in species from microbes to man. Species diversity is a biologically-based nutrient-dependent morphological fact and species-specific pheromones control the physiology of reproduction.

Natural selection for energy-dependent codon optimality conserves the amino acid substitutions in the context of the stability of supercoiled DNA. That stability protects all organized genomes from virus-driven energy theft and genomic entropy. Protection from viruses occurs via the pheromone-controlled biophysically constrained physiology of reproduction in all living genera. Experimental evidence of that fact was included in our section on molecular epigenetics from this 1996 Hormones and Behavior review.
From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior

Parenthetically it is interesting to note even the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae has a gene-based equivalent of sexual orientation (i.e., a-factor and alpha-factor physiologies). These differences arise from different epigenetic modifications of an otherwise identical MAT locus (Runge and Zakian, 1996; Wu and Haber, 1995).

Host energy-dependent speciation

Graphical abstract from “Tracing the Enterococci from Paleozoic Origins to the Hospital”

Reported as: Enterococci may have evolved antimicrobial resistance millions of years ago

…researchers have traced evidence of the bacteria’s evolutionary history back 425 million years and theorize that the same traits that allow the bacteria to thrive in hospitals likely emerged when they were carried onto land in the guts of the world’s first terrestrial animals. The study was funded in part by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health.

The physiology of reproduction in bacteria and all other living genera is nutrient-dependent and pheromone-controlled. Researchers who think they have traced evidence back to the bacteria’s evolutionary history across 425 million years have not considered the weekend resurrection of the bacterial flagellum to be proof of their pseudoscientific nonsense. Instead, they report “Speciation: Host energy source driven” in their graphical abstract.

The ‘affective primacy hypothesis’ [5] asserts that positive and negative affective reactions can be evoked with minimal stimulus input and virtually no cognitive processing. Olfactory signals seem to induce emotional reactions whether or not a chemical stimulus is consciously perceived. We theorize that the importance of human non-verbal signals is based upon information processing, which occurs in the limbic system, and without any cognitive (cortical) assessment. Affect thus does not require conscious interpretation of signal content. Underlying this fact is that affect dominates social interaction and it is the major currency in social interactions [6]. Affective reactions can occur without extensive perceptual and cognitive encoding. They are made with greater confidence than cognitive judgments, and can be made sooner [5, 7]. Olfactory input from the social environment is well adapted to fit such assertions. For example, chemical cues allow humans to select for, and to mate for, traits of reproductive fitness that cannot be assessed simply from visual cues.

See for comparison: Ontological Systems In Cognition

There is investigated the possibility of cognition of everything that somehow and other is able to influence to the cognizer – its Existing, which exists for him and may be cognized by him. It is proved that all parts of the Existing are interconnected, it is closed and is the only one for all cognizers in it, and everything differed from the Existing is indistinguishable for the cognizer from non-Existing and cannot be cognized by him. It is shown that the surrounding world of the cognizer, understood as a collection of objects and interconnections identified by him, corresponds to the cognizer’s `nature’ – its ontology and are only a part of the Existing. Objects and interconnections of different ontology differ from each other on level of notions, so are uncertain, inconsistent and paradoxical in relation to each other, and corresponding systems of representations with definite ontology cannot be unified in frames of one system, so are irredundant with each other. There are found the correlations of physical objects of quantum theories, also as cosmological dark matter and dark energy with objects with different ontology. There are analyzed the methods of mathematical description of objects with different ontology, the so-called `correlation principle’ of physical theories in irredundant systems of representations, the `principle of freedom’ for formation of the universe understood as the surrounding world of the cognizer. There are considered the philosophical aspects of the existence of irredundant representations, the physical picture of the world, which this concept leads to. The surrounding worlds corresponding to irredundant representation systems, being parts of the one Existing, are closely interconnected, mutually complemented and form each other, without mixing and being different `by nature’, and contradictions between them stand as moving forces of their evolution.

All aspects of anything that has ever been linked to the “moving forces” of evolution have clearly been linked from food energy and movement to biodiversity and from stress-related virus-driven energy theft to mutations that link the lack of movement at the molecular level to all pathology.

The authors note that on page 17184, right column, first paragraph, line 4, “effect” should instead appear as “affect.”

The failure to provide a neurobiological framework for understanding natural selection for energy-dependent codon optimality, which is the basis for the biological embedding of epigenetically-effected positive health, positive affect, self-efficacy and self-esteem via effects on reactive alleles in the genome, continues to link all pathology from the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA to the negative supercoiling of DNA.
No one asked me to establish that framework for healthy longevity or pathology, but I did it anyway after I was told to start with gene activation in GnRH neuroscrectory neurons by Bruce McEwen.

What researchers are learning as they sequence, map, and decode species’ genomes

The researchers found that genes involved in key survival functions, such as the removal of cellular toxins, the stabilization of proteins, and the activity of the innate immune system, were expanded in deep-sea mussels.

Anna Di Cosmo’s group presciently placed these finding into the context of General and Comparative Endocrinology in Role of olfaction in Octopus vulgaris reproduction
From the concluding paragraph:

Future work on O. vulgaris olfaction must also consider how animals acquire the odours detected by the olfactory organ and what kind of odour the olfactory organ perceives. The OL acting as control centre may be target organ for metabolic hormones such as leptin like and insulin like peptides, and olfactory organ could exert regulatory action on the OL via epigenetic effects of nutrients and pheromones on gene expression (Kohl, 2013; Elekonich and Robinson, 2000). — p. 61

The fact that the energy-dependent stability of RNA-mediated protein folding chemistry links physics from autophagy to biophysically constrained viral latency went missing during the past 4 years, but is not likely to continue to be ignored.
See why: Nutrient-dependent/pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution: a model
Conclusion:

…the model represented here is consistent with what is known about the epigenetic effects of ecologically important nutrients and pheromones on the adaptively evolved behavior of species from microbes to man. Minimally, this model can be compared to any other factual representations of epigenesis and epistasis for determination of the best scientific ‘fit’.

There is still no other model for comparison, despite the publication of Mutation-Driven Evolution on the same day my 2013 review was published.

(1) Mutation is the source of all genetic variation on which any form of evolution is dependent. Mutation is the change of genomic structure and includes nucleotide substitution, insertion/deletion, segmental gene duplication, genomic duplication, changes in gene regulatory systems, transposition of genes, horizontal gene transfer, etc. (2) Natural selection is for saving advantageous mutations and eliminating harmful mutations. Selective advantage of the mutation is determined by the type of DNA change, and therefore natural selection is an evolutionary process initiated by mutation.

That claim differentiates ridiculous theories from my model of biophysically constrained biologically-based cause and effect. The differences were noted in 1991 when Roger Penrose wrote:

How often do we still hear that quantum effects can have little relevance in the study of biology, or even that we eat food in order to gain energy? – From What is Life? (reprint edition)

Conclusion:

Our work demonstrates one can introduce an active control to DNA conductance by modifying a base with a redox group, and switch the DNA conductance reversibly between two levels by oxidizing or reducing the redox group with an EC gate. This strategy could be implemented in more sophisticated DNA nanostructures for active device building blocks. As the DNA conductance is an indicator of the molecule in the reduction or oxidation state, it is possible to study redox reaction kinetics at the single-molecule level by monitoring the DNA conductance.

This means they can examine virus-driven energy theft in the context of redox reaction kinetics and thermodynamics at the single molecule level, which links nutrient energy-dependent changes from angstroms to ecosystems via the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction in species from microbes to humans. Simply put, they can link virus-driven energy theft from mutations to all pathology in species from archaea to modern humans.

See also: Billionaires say they’ll end disease. Evolution suggests otherwise

Darwin introduced a viewpoint that was radically unsettling: we don’t progress to a more perfect form, but adapt to local environments. If humans are machines, then we can simply repair the broken parts. But if there is something more fundamental to the crisis of life than mere mechanisms of biology, then risk, and an element of danger, will always be with us.

Humans are not machines. Bill Gates probably knows that. And he probably knows that theistic evolution is the threat that can now be placed into the context of Non-theistic evolution

The major criticism of theistic evolution by non-theistic evolutionists focuses on its essential belief in a supernatural creator. These critics argue that by the application of Occam’s razor, sufficient explanation of the phenomena of evolution is provided by natural processes (in particular, natural selection), and the intervention or direction of a supernatural entity is not required.[42] Evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins considers theistic evolution a superfluous attempt to “smuggle God in by the back door”.[43]

God doesn’t need to be smuggled in. He’s always been with those who believe. Believers know that natural selection for energy-dependent codon optimality occurs in the context of the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction. The physiology of energy-dependent reproduction links natural processes to fixation of amino acid substitutions in supercoiled DNA that differentiate the cell types of all living genera.

Supercoiled DNA protects all organized genomes from virus driven energy theft, which is linked to all pathology by mutations. Theistic evolutionists may continue to claim that they believe in mutation-driven evolution, but that’s because they known nothing about energy-dependent top-down causation.

Ask Bill Gates or a theistic evolutionist where the energy comes from, and see for comparison.

Charge-altering releasable transporters (CARTs) for the delivery and release of mRNA in living animals

CARTs are structurally unique and operate through an unprecedented mechanism, serving initially as oligo(alpha-amino ester) cations that complex, protect, and deliver mRNA and then change physical properties through a degradative, charge-neutralizing intramolecular rearrangement, leading to intracellular release of functional mRNA and highly efficient protein translation.

Reported as: A new way Forward for Gene Therapy

Sickle-cell disease is caused by a mutation that links the transgenerational epigenetic inheritance of virus-driven energy theft to failed nutrient energy-dependent RNA-mediated DNA repair. Hemoglobin S is a naturally occurring hemoglobin variant — one of more than 1200 other variants. The variants link RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions in the cell types of populations of ecologically adapted humans. Clearly, their lineages adapted to ecological variation in the parts of the world where they were raised. Researchers have delivered nutrient energy-dependent messenger RNA (mRNA) into cells that use the mRNA to make proteins. What’s missing from this report on gene therapy are facts about how nutrient energy-dependent viral latency must be linked to healthy longevity via energy-dependent changes in the microRNA/messenger RNA balance linked to amino acid substitutions in supercoiled DNA, or from virus-driven energy theft to all pathology.
I continue to encourage comments from those who are not Combating Evolution to Fight Disease, especially if they are willing to tell others what they like about virus-driven energy theft and all pathology. Now that Bill Gates has clearly stated that virus-driven energy theft is not likely to be a good thing for humanity, perhaps he will join the serious scientists and/or help to fund their works.

Conclusion:

Our analysis thus indicated that MeCP2-mediated alternative splicing might influence neuronal functions via two different strategies: one is to regulate protein diversity by coding exons, and another is to regulate protein expression by non-coding exons. Our studies not only systematically explore the mechanisms underlying MeCP2-mediated alternative splicing, but also provide insights into the roles of MeCP2-mediated alternative splicing, which could influence both protein diversity and protein expression level in neurons.

Our 1996 Hormones and Behavior review explored the molecular mechanisms of RNA-mediated alternative splicings and nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled biophysically constrained protein folding chemistry in the context of the physiology of reproduction in species from microbes to humans.
See our molecular epigenetics section in From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior

Small intranuclear proteins also participate in generating alternative splicing techniques of pre-mRNA and, by this mechanism, contribute to sexual differentiation in at least two species, Drosophila melanogaster and Caenorhabditis elegans (Adler and Hajduk, 1994; de Bono, Zarkower, and Hodgkin, 1995; Ge, Zuo, and Manley, 1991; Green, 1991; Parkhurst and Meneely, 1994; Wilkins, 1995; Wolfner, 1988). That similar proteins perform functions in humans suggests the possibility that some human sex differences may arise from alternative splicings of otherwise identical genes.

If my co-authors and I had been funded to link what was known about biologically-based cell type differentiation in all species to their origins and from ecological variation to ecological adaptations in all living genera, you would not need to ask whether or not some or all of your loved ones will survive the viral apocalypse.

…etiological models suggest that the biological male phenotype carries a higher intrinsic risk for ASD than the female phenotype.

Bear’s two Darwin novels were not written just to entertain.

SARCASM ALERT

The idea of biophysical constraints seems antithetical to the idea of nature somehow selecting mutations that cause amino acid substitutions. However, I am not a biophysicist or evolutionary theorist.

The problem may be my focus on nutrient-dependent receptor-mediated amino acid substitutions in species from bacteria to humans (non-viral organisms). Since I am not a virologist or physicist, I’m not sure that the laws of physics apply to viruses and their replication.

If they do, natural selection for random mutations is not likely to result in amino acid substitutions because the thermodynamics of changes in organism-level thermoregulation preclude such randomness. Stability of protein biosynthesis and degradation that probably depends on protein folding must somehow be controlled. Besides, I don’t know how random mutations in viruses could be naturally selected for inclusion in the human virome (or in the virome of any organism capable of thermoregulating its thermodynamic intercellular signaling).

If the Second Law of Thermodynamics does not apply to viruses, which means the chemical bonds that enable the amino acid substitutions can form at random and somehow be naturally selected, the details of biophysical constraints in this article seems out of place, since I do not think in terms of constrained random mutations and natural selection in mutation-driven evolution.

Hopefully, someone with a background in biophysics will address my confusion in case others are confused. In addition, I wonder if the consequences of understanding the evolutionary mechanisms that govern viruses extend to consequences important to understanding the evolution of species from bacteria to humans via constrained random mutations and natural selection?

People with a background in biophysics or computer models of biophysically constrained top-down causation have addressed the confusion about random mutations and natural selection in mutation-driven evolution. Simply put, there is no such thing as natural selection for random mutations, which means there no such thing as the evolution of one species from another.
