Summary: I am not afflicted by the consequences of beliefs in ridiculous theories, and I do not tell stories about white whale obsessions. Moby Dick, for example, has been linked to passages from Biblical Genesis, and so has every aspect of healthy longevity.
But, I am also not a theologian. I am a medical laboratory scientist who knows that the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA causes pure or partial albinism, and all pathology, in this context:
Photoredox cycling during UV irradiation of ferrocyanide ([FeII(CN)6]4-) in the presence of stoichiometric sulfite (SO32-) is shown to be an extremely effective way to drive the reductive homologation of hydrogen cyanide (HCN) to simple sugars and precursors of hydroxy acids and amino acids.
Simply put, hydrogen atom transfer in DNA base pairs in solution links the creation of sunlight to energy-dependent DNA repair, which biophysically constrains viral latency.
If you do not know my name, call me Arrowsmith. As another fictional character, he linked viruses in bacteria (bacteriophages) to all pathology in the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Sinclair Lewis (1925). The role of amino acids subsequently became perfectly clear.
Cytochrome C is an enzyme that plays an important role in the metabolism of aerobic cells. It is found in the most diverse organisms, from man to molds. E. Margoliash, W. M. Fitch, and others have compared the amino acid sequences in cytochrome C in different branches of the living world. Most significant similarities as well as differences have been brought to light [in the context of Dobzhansky’s joke about the light of evolution]. The cytochrome C of different orders of mammals and birds differ in 2 to 17 amino acids, classes of vertebrates in 7 to 38, and vertebrates and insects in 23 to 41; and animals differ from yeasts and molds in 56 to 72 amino acids. Fitch and Margoliash prefer to express their findings in what are called “minimal mutational distances.” It has been mentioned above that different amino acids are coded by different triplets of nucleotides in DNA of the genes; this code is now known.
The facts that link the creation of sunlight to changes in the DNA code are also known. The so-called “minimal mutational differences” have been linked from energy-dependent changes in angstroms to ecosystems in all living genera via fixation of amino acid substitutions.
The energy-dependent light-activated creation of enzymes has been linked to the creation of different triplets of nucleotides in DNA and different amino acids via what is known to all serious scientists about “The Code.”
See for example: Variation in the Tyrosinase Gene Associated with a White Humpback Whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) (1/1/2012)
Tyrosinase is the key enzyme in melanin biosynthesis, and mutations in the tyrosinase gene result in OCA1A.
The link from the virus-driven loss of one enzyme to albinism in many species has been linked to all pathology in all species via Biblical Genesis.
Read Moby Dick (1851)
Moby Dick famously begins with the narratorial invocation “Call me Ishmael.” [See Biblical Genesis 16:11] The narrator, like his biblical counterpart, is an outcast. Ishmael, who turns to the sea for meaning, relays to the audience the final voyage of the Pequod, a whaling vessel. Amid a story of tribulation, beauty, and madness, the reader is introduced to a number of characters, many of whom have names with religious resonance.
Others who have turned to the sea for meaning published: Virus-mediated archaeal hecatomb in the deep seafloor (2016). Moby Dick presciently linked Biblical Genesis to the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA that has continued to cause unnecessary suffering and premature death many years after Charles Darwin made his claims about energy-dependent “conditions of life” in 1859.
“IF under changing conditions of life…”
“…variability is generally related to the conditions of life to which each species has been exposed during several successive generations.”
“…allied species are descended from a common parent; and during the process of modification, each has become adapted to the conditions of life of its own region…”
