Summary: The cover art refutes the pseudoscientific nonsense in “Nature” about how the reproduction and growth strategies of modern mammals evolved.
Warning: Pseudoscientists sometimes use profanity to make a point that they know nothing about anything known to serious scientists.

Simply put, forget the math. Link the creation of quantized energy from light-activated microRNA biogenesis to biophysically constrained viral latency and ecological adaptations in species from microbes to humans as if you were a serious scientist who understood that feedback loops must be linked from the physiology of reproduction to sympatric speciation.

The association of a high number of offspring and largely isometric cranial growth in Kayentatherium is consistent with a scenario in which encephalization—and attendant shifts in metabolism and development7,8—drove later changes to mammalian reproduction.
Caption: Specimens dating back 184 million years shine a light on how the reproduction and growth strategies of modern mammals evolved.
In the week before Schrödinger at 75 – The Future of Biology – September 2018 “Science” pits the energy-dependent biophysically constrained feedback loops in the Mobius strip against the claims in “Nature” about specimens dating back 184 million years. No experimental evidence of biophysically constrained feedback loops can be linked to theories about how modern mammals evolved. After you abandon the ridiculous mathematical models, see also:
Watch this to the end and you will hear them politely refer to Neil deGrasse Tyson as a big ass (i.e., in context, a bass)

It is intriguing that similar considerations of environment and contingency are now seen to be central in quantum mechanics, with its ideas of entanglement, decoherence and contextuality. Whether this is more than coincidence, we can’t yet say.
