RNA-mediated epigenetic modification via DNA-methylation

human-evolution

I have repeatedly used the phrase “RNA-directed DNA methylation and RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions” in the context of links from the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of DNA in the organized genomes of species from microbes to man. See…

Quantum physics, quantum biology, and quantum consciousness

human-evolution

Has anyone but me attempted to link light-induced amino acid substitutions from quantum physics to quantum biology in the context of the following works? All five published articles appear to be linked to quantum consciousness by the chemistry of nutrient-dependent…
