Electronic life will never exist

“Transition from Inorganic to Organic Life was Based on Information, Not Chemistry”

Reese Jones quoted from the article linked above on his Facebook page: “…organization of biological replicators differs crucially from trivial replication associated with crystals (non-life).”

He added the following nonsensical non-sequitur “[and organization of internet information replicators differs further from biological replications, so we may be witnessing another phase transition into internet lifeforms”

Like others who are touting ridiculous theories about life on this planet, Jones seems unable to understand the fact that biological replication (i.e., reproduction) is nutrient-dependent and pheromone-controlled. One of the truisms brought to our attention again by Davies, whose thoughts are the basis for this discussion, is that “Epigenetics provides striking examples of how bottom-up genetic and top-down epigenetic causation intermingle.

In my model, bottom-up genetics is a function of nutrient-uptake, since organisms are genetically predisposed to find food. Top-down epigenetic cause intermingles with genetics when nutrients metabolize to the pheromones that control biological replication (i.e., reproduction) in species from microbes to man. Thus, we are not “…witnessing another phase transition into internet lifeforms”

We have never witnessed anything of the kind. We never will. Darwin’s ‘conditions of life’ are nutrient-dependent and pheromone-controlled, which means that electronic life will never exist in any form. It will never exist in any electronic form because the complexity of systems biology and the feedback mechanisms required to stabilize the molecular mechanisms conserved across all species cannot be electronically replicated.

Meanwhile, Jones appears to be trying to get me blocked from posting to public discussions on the topic of my expertise. That’s also typical of what academics do when anyone challenges their ridiculous opinions by introducing biological facts into discussions they initiate.

About James V. Kohl 1308 Articles
James Vaughn Kohl was the first to accurately conceptualize human pheromones, and began presenting his findings to the scientific community in 1992. He continues to present to, and publish for, diverse scientific and lay audiences, while constantly monitoring the scientific presses for new information that is relevant to the development of his initial and ongoing conceptualization of human pheromones. Recently, Kohl integrated scientific evidence that pinpoints the evolved neurophysiological mechanism that links olfactory/pheromonal input to genes in hormone-secreting cells of tissue in a specific area of the brain that is primarily involved in the sensory integration of olfactory and visual input, and in the development of human sexual preferences. His award-winning 2007 article/book chapter on multisensory integration: The Mind’s Eyes: Human pheromones, neuroscience, and male sexual preferences followed an award winning 2001 publication: Human pheromones: integrating neuroendocrinology and ethology, which was coauthored by disinguished researchers from Vienna. Rarely do researchers win awards in multiple disciplines, but Kohl’s 2001 award was for neuroscience, and his 2007 “Reiss Theory” award was for social science. Kohl has worked as a medical laboratory scientist since 1974, and he has devoted more than twenty-five years to researching the relationship between the sense of smell and the development of human sexual preferences. Unlike many researchers who work with non-human subjects, medical laboratory scientists use the latest technology from many scientific disciplines to perform a variety of specialized diagnostic medical testing on people.
