Natural common descent driven by natural mutation (at protein, cis-regulatory & epigenetic levels) channeled by selection (natural, sexual, purifying etc), taking place over the last 4 billion years. Now what’s YOUR model, Kohl? You’ve been terrible at explaining it. — Rulon J. Downard 1/29/20
See for comparison: The pheromone darcin drives a circuit for innate and reinforced behaviours 1/29/20
…this darcin-activated neural circuit integrates pheromonal information with internal state to elicit both variable innate behaviours and reinforced behaviours that may promote mate encounters and mate selection.
Photoactivation and darcin activation of neurons elicit innate attraction, ultrasonic vocalizations, and urinary scent marking, which were paired with reinforcement of conditioned behavior. That fact was presciently anticipated and exquisitely detailed with experimental evidence in Olfaction Warps Visual Time Perception 3/17/17
With no direct access to the physical time, the brain reconstructs “time” from the dynamic environmental inputs relayed by various sensory modalities. Here we show that the very process of sensory integration twists time perception.
In physics, space-time is warped by the distribution of mass and energy in it (Hwaking 1988). Our findings, along with others (Johnston et al. 2006; Xuan et al. 2007; Wang and Jiang 2012; Mayo and Sommer 2013), suggest a parallel in the perception of time––subjective time is “warped” by the neural energy involved in representing multisensory inputs at subsecond scales.
Multisensory inputs at femtosecond and/or picosecond scales link God’s Creation of the sense of smell in bacteria via anti-entropic virucidal sunlight and water. The energy-dependent light-activated assembly of the microRNA-RNA-peptide nanocomplex links His Creation of the sense of smell to oxidative phosphorylation.
Oxygen (oxidative phosphorylation) protects all energy-as-information-dependent and/or ATP-dependent organized genomes from the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA, which links mutations to all pathology in species from microbes to mammals. Mutation-driven disease is antithetical to what’s known about plant growth, Mendelian genetics, and Darwin’s “conditions of life.”
Darwin’s “conditions of life” (organisms must eat for species to proliferate) have since been linked to food energy-dependent pheromone-controlled ecological adaptations in all ecosystems.

See for comparison: Genetic dissection of assortative mating behavior 2/7/19
Ecologically relevant mating cues (sometimes known as “magic traits” [2,6]) are now predicted to be widespread in nature [6,7], and the last few years have seen considerable progress in our understanding of their genetic basis.
A good model predicts. I predict that my model of biophysically constrained viral latency will link the ridiculous claims of people like Rulon James Downard to the cause of the coronavirus crisis in Wuhan, and that this 2014 invited review, published in 2018, will link supplementation with vitamin C and vitamin D to control of the crisis.
Alternatively, others may continue to profit from withholding or from obfuscating facts in patents that clearly attest to the need to link RNA interference to healthy longevity in all living genera.
