Earlier today, George Ellis brought this to the attention of others.
Quantum behaviour has been discovered in algae
I thank him for calling attention to the requirement for an epigenetic trap that links the sun’s biological energy from atoms to ecosystems via RNA-mediated cell type differentiation in all living genera.
They found that the two species that could turn the coherence off had a genetic mutation that led to the insertion of an extra amino acid in the protein complex.
My comment: Mutations are not linked to insertion of the nutrient-dependent amino acid substitutions that stabilize the organized genomes of species from all living genera.
For a historical perspective on quantum behavior, see:
Let there be anti-entropic light (1)
Let there be anti-entropic light (2)
The newer report on the algae links the first of two epigenetic traps from nutrient-dependent amino acid substitutions to the protection that supercoiled DNA provides against virus-driven genomic entropy.
The question arises: Does anyone know how to teach a theorist about the difference between a mutation and a nutrient energy-dependent RNA-mediated amino acid substitution?
For example, in 2011, Meierhenrich and colleagues showed that light could transfer its “handedness” to amino acids in deep space . Since then, the link from the UV light-induced de novo creation of nucleic acids to RNA-mediated cell type differentiation has become even clearer to those who can link physics from chemistry to biologically-based cause and effect on Earth without making any ridiculous claims about mutations and evolution, which Meierhenrich and colleagues linked to chiral amino acids on interstellar ice analogs.
See: Non-racemic Amino Acid Production by Ultraviolet Irradiation of Achiral Interstellar Ice Analogs with Circularly Polarized Light
…the UV-CPL irradiation of an astrophysically relevant achiral ices mixture has been shown to lead to the formation of chiral organics containing a slight but statistically significant asymmetry. The amino acid alanine displays e.e.’s (up to 1.34%) that were shown to depend on the helicity of the CPL used and are proportional to the number of photons per deposited ice molecule.
My comment: I have had a problem trying to tell theorists about the links from atoms to ecosystems and RNA-mediated cell type differentiation on Earth because they seem to think that mutations and amino acid substitutions are the same thing. The problem is made worse by other theorists who claim that chirality in outer space can be linked from the effects of UV light on interstellar ice analogs to biophysically constrained nutrient-dependent RNA-mediated protein folding chemistry and cell type differentiation on Earth.
How can anyone convince a theorist that chirality in outer space and mutations in DNA of organisms living on Earth cannot be linked to quantum behaviors? All behaviors must be linked to biodiversity via the fixation of RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions and the physiology of nutrient-dependent reproduction.
For example of how that is done, see: MicroRNA-encoded behavior
