‘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.”
A few minutes spent watching this video will leave you very informed about some complex issues in behavioral development that are linked to the epigenetic effects of food odors and social odors on genetically predisposed behaviors.
Epigenetic influences of nutrition and socialization on intracellular signalling pathways link epigenetic cause directly to gene activation and stochastic gene expression are required for genetically predisposed phenotypic changes in the body and behavior of organisms from microbes to man.
It does not allow for asexual selection, sexual selection, or the Creation of new species to be based on spectral input and/or visual perception. There’s no model for that!
Few people have even considered whether human pheromone-driven menstrual synchrony affects the behavior of women or men, despite that animal models that say it must.
Philosophical consistency incorporates what is currently known about the across-species consistency of molecular mechanisms.
This exemplifies discoveries made by “pattern-seeking” scientists and laypersons who think about what others may simply accept based on what they can “see”.
Perhaps viruses are calibrating all mechanisms for both individual survival and for speciation across all species. If so, shall we credit them for all of Creation? What then can be said for “The Language of God?” 1532 genes and interactions among them are required for sexual reproduction that involves the mammalian placenta.
“We have known there is some physical link, but [nerve zero] really helps to define it.
“The honeybee is a model organism for understanding the epigenetic link from food odors and social odors to neural networks of the mammalian brain, which ultimately determine human behavior.”
