Dear Colleagues, it appears that the basic mechanism of the regulation at work in genetics has been found and the logic can be explained and made quite understandable - even for those who believe themselves to be challenged in numerical approaches. There is Big Money in this, as the explanation

Question: What, exactly, is the hypothesis? Answer (proposal): We state, as a hypothesis I. - Basics - , that: a) human knowledge arises from simplifications of neural impressions into communicable patterns; b) specific communicable patterns arise regularly in temporal connections with specific

Dear Colleagues, solving the puzzles of our generation certainly requires a co-ordinated effort from many sciences. Research into the functions of the human brain has unearthed some perceptional artefacts of humans. These methods of perceptions are optimised for the tasks of biologic entities -

The model proposed for numeric treatment of information answers following points raised by Shannon and Logan: Logan: The inspiration for adopting the word entropy in information theory comes from the close resemblance between Shannon's formula and the very similar formula from thermodynamics:

Let me add to Igor's points about instability: Redundancy/diversity, on the other hand, is essential ... It creates informational entropy and gives a momentum to material/energy entropy production ... that redundancy/diversity DOES NOT GET CREATED it isd always there, but we choose to neglect it,

Dear Colleagues, the discussion about complexity leads us back to our basic assumptions. The core point appears to be, how we perceive a): the world, and b): what we think about the world, and c): how a) and b) fit together. This can be formalised into a) how we feel, b) how we think, c) how

Dear Fis, the discussion appears to move in a very interesting direction, connecting the experiences learnt by the kid with the subject the kid learned. How this subtle connection influences our concepts about Nature is a central philosophical problem. In my contributions in the last few years,

[Fis] genetics: the most outstanding problem, SOLVED

2006-11-07 Thread Karl Javorszky
Dear Stan, In your last posting, you said: SS: Of course, the origin of the genetic system is arguably the most outstanding problem facing natural science. It seems that, other than the (to me) unconvincing RNA World idea, there is no compelling model of it. The model that the RNA
