Schrödinger (1944) linked the anti-entropic virucidal energy of sunlight from the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction in soil bacteria to all biodiversity. He then began to suspect that his colleagues, who displayed human idiocy, would kill him – if ever again he reasserted the facts.
After 1944, Richard P. Feynman took a stand against the human idiocy, and lost. He was not killed, just ignored.
Ignorance prevails. It always has. The virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA ensures that organized genomes continue to become less organized and that biologically uninformed theorists continue to tout pseudoscientific nonsense.
New Genes and Functional Innovation in Mammals 21 July 2017
We identify several previously described cases of genes originated de novo from noncoding genomic regions, supporting the idea that this mechanism frequently underlies the evolution of new protein-coding genes in mammals. Finally, we show that most young mammalian genes are preferentially expressed in testis, suggesting that sexual selection plays an important role in the emergence of new functional genes.

They have also identified antimicrobial peptides, which participate in the body’s defence against pathogens.
The energy-dependent creation of “…antimicrobial peptides, which participate in the body’s defence against pathogens” already was linked from the sense of smell in bacteria to the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction and biophysically constrained viral latency, which protects all organized genomes from the degradation of messenger RNA. False assumptions about entropy for comparison to experimental evidence of the de novo creation of genes have been placed into the context of the “arrow of time.”
Scientists Experimentally Demonstrate the “Reversal of the Arrow of Time” 4 December 2017
Through a remarkable experiment, an international team of scientists has found that it is possible to reverse the arrow of time without violating the second law of thermodynamics.
Pseudoscientists need no longer consider anything that cannot be linked to this experimental evidence of top-down energy-dependent causation and biophysically constrained viral latency/genomic entropy. Thank God, nothing but experimental evidence of the anti-entropic virucidal energy of sunlight has ever been considered by those who have linked feedback loops from odors and pheromones to all biodiversity on Earth.

…has established itself as an outstanding stage to present the research in the intersection of physics, chemistry and biology. This field has been developed in Lithuania for more than 20 years already. The beginnings could be associated with a series of “Light-harvesting Physics” international conferences, which were held in Lithuania (in Preila, 1992 and 1994, and in Birštonas, 1996). During these conferences, discussion of notable scientists and pioneers of Quantum Biology, such as Graham R. Fleming, Shaul Mukamel, Rienk van Grondelle, Richard Cogdell, Alfred Holzwarth and others, established excitons in biology as the “must-talk-language” when describing the quantum effects in biological light-harvesting systems.
Quantum effects in biological light-harvesting systems have been linked from the de novo creation of sunlight to answers about all biophysically constrained biodiversity via Schrodinger’s What is Life? (1944).
Indeed, in the case of higher animals we know the kind of orderliness they feed upon well enough, viz. the extremely well-ordered state of matter in more or less complicated organic compounds, which serve them as foodstuffs. After utilizing it they return it in a very much degraded form -not entirely degraded, however, for plants can still make use of it. (These, of course, have their most power supply of ‘negative entropy’ the sunlight.) (pp. 73 and 74)

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.

The anti-entropic force of virucidal ultraviolet light links guanine–cytosine (G⋅C) Watson–Crick base pairing from hydrogen-atom transfer in DNA base pairs in solution to supercoiled DNA, which protects the organized genomes of all living genera from virus-driven entropy. For example, protection of DNA from permanent UV damage occurs in the context of photosynthesis and nutrient-dependent RNA-directed DNA methylation, which links RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions to DNA repair. In the context of thermodynamic cycles of protein biosynthesis and degradation, DNA repair enables the de novo creation of G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs). Olfactory receptor genes are GPCRs. The de novo creation of olfactory receptor genes links chemotaxis and phototaxis from foraging behavior to social behavior in species from microbes to humans. Foraging behavior links ecological variation to ecological adaptation in the context of this atoms to ecosystems model of biophysically constrained energy-dependent RNA-mediated protein folding chemistry. Protein folding chemistry links nutrient-dependent microRNAs from microRNA flanking sequences to energy transfer and cell type differentiation in the context of adhesion proteins, and supercoiled DNA that protects all organized genomes from virus-driven entropy.
See for comparison: On causal roles and selected effects: our genome is mostly junk December 5, 2017
The idea that much of our genome is irrelevant to fitness—is not the product of positive natural selection at the organismal level—remains viable.
That is to say, many of our uniquely human traits are probably the contingent products of drift and historical accidents—they make us us, but were not selected to have that, or necessarily any, effect. So we are back to Ohno’s conundrum. If lungfishes have junk, or at the least extraordinarily weakly or diffusely functional DNA in their genomes, why is it that we think we do not?
The concept of “junk DNA” is inconsistent with anything known to serious scientists about energy-dependent biophysically constrained viral latency. Feedback loops link top-down causation to the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction via RNA-mediated fixation of amino acid substitutions in the organized genomes of all living genera.

My comment: New data on how genetic predispositions are epigenetically linked to phenotypically distinct neuroanatomy and behaviors is provided in the honeybee model. Across-species comparisons from insects to vertebrates clearly show that the epigenetic influence of food odors and pheromones continues throughout the life of organisms that collectively survive whereas individuals do not. These comparisons also attest to the relative salience of sensory input from the rearing environment. For example, when viewed from the consistency of animal models and conditioned behaviors, food odors are obviously more important to food selection than is our visual perception of food. Animal models affirm that food odor makes food either appealing or unappealing. Animal models reaffirm that it is the pheromones of other animals that makes them either appealing or unappealing.
“Socioaffective neuroscience and psychology may progress more quickly by keeping these apparent facts in mind: Olfaction and odor receptors provide a clear evolutionary trail that can be followed from unicellular organisms to insects to humans (Keller et al., 2007; Kohl, 2007; Villarreal, 2009; Vosshall, Wong, & Axel, 2000).”

George F R Ellis This is absolutely correct and forms part of the larger concept that top-down causation is a key factor not just in the way the brain works but in broader contexts in biology and even physics.

See: [Pheromonal regulation of genetic processes: research on the house mouse (Mus musculus L.)] 1994
A study of the influence of pheromone stressor(s) on proliferating germ and somatic cells was performed on laboratory lines of house mouse in the context of the physiological hypothesis of mutation process, proposed by M.E. Lobashev in 1947. Data from experiments are presented, and results obtained during last 10-15 years are discussed. The adaptive role of cytogenetic and other observed pheromonal effects is considered. The possible existence of interorganism systems of genetic regulation is discussed, the search for and study of which may help in more complete understanding of the regularities of functioning of genetic material.
