Time for a radical rethink!
The substantial portion of the biomass consists in bacteriophages. After that it is the prokaryotic or Archaea bacteria, finally the Eukaryotic bacteria..thus we have a ready made structure for deciphering the evolutionary processes that result in life as we know it..
I first admit consciousness as a computational process, and thus any computational process in the ALU is a conscious process.
Next I admit that electronic analogues support this conscious process. Thus for electro magnetic structures the possibility of performing the same function as a NAND Or NOR fieldgate definitely exists.
Now, brute natural forces, especially electromagnetic are capable of creating the stable structures such as the icosahedron capsid that holds a coding DNA or RNA from a process that generates these short chains of amino acids.
That RNA could arise from some chemical soup, with electromagnetic environments selecting certain outcome by force of
its own unfolding nature.we currently find these inside prokaryotic bacteria, but at some stage these were free agents.
Thus the Bacteriophage form an excellent backdrop against which to contrast their development into parasitic symbiosis. The evolutionary advantage is the store of vast numbers of genetic code sequences.
The fundamental importance of the sphere in evolution cannot be underestimated, and the capsid of the bacteriophage bears testimony to this. Of course the spheres form as a fractal foam of bubbles, and while we are used to thinking of these bubbles as thin films of material, they are in fact sheets of charged matter. Thus we may realise that within the electromagnetic field effect , the Shunya field, the formation of a electromagnetic bubble structure is a common occurrence.
Again we are used to thinking of magnetic and electrostatic field lines as radially directed lines, but in fact it is better to perceive these structures as dipole bubbles organised around a larger more powerful dipole. The fractal nature of this structure of bubbles is not obvious until pointed out.
The geometry of this fractal structure promotes different geometrical forms from tetrahedra to the icosahedrons and the "sphere". The stability of these forms is what determines there survivability. Thus we may and must envisage a bubble structured process occurring within these dense soups of chemicals.
Again we are used to thinking in terms of chemical reactions occurring within a solvent. We therefor completely discount the existence and formation of bubble regions within the solvent that promote or inhibit catalytic ally, many common reactions.
Water has a unique role to play in our understanding of these bubble catalytic substrates. We usually do not relate the many different bubble regions the structure of the water molecule can create, and how these change with temperature. When we consider the formation of ice we do make some reference to these structures and we all know the supposed hexagonal structures of snow flakes. What we completely overlook is how these electromagnetic sheet charge effects are evidence of a bubble structure in the medium of water itself.
Now, of course ths is not confined to water alone, but the nature of these bubble structures necessarily becomes more complex, the more "atoms" in the molecular structure of the material/ element. Water has the advantage of being the simplest structure that can support these bubble regions of electromagnetic charge, and over a low temperature range.
When looking at water, then as a solvent we need to recognise its substrate function. The bubble structure actually " holds" the dissolved elements or chemicals in a defined dynamic bubble structure. Holding the elements in these precise ways catalytically promotes a certain class of reactions.
There are other solvents besides water, not as versatile, but essentially they form bubble substrates for certain other classes of chemical reactions.
There is a lot of rethinking that needs to be done about these bubble substrates, especially those that do not look like bubbles! It is not te bubble that is the focus, it is the charge sheet structure , the electromagnetic "bubble" structure that is crucial as a catalytic substrate.
The capsid is a protein structure of one type of protein molecule element or amino acid. It requires a fractal bubble field to develop the bubble wall alignments to allow this form to pop out of the bubble soup. But like a construction kit once the pieces are in place they snap together to form a resilient and enduring structure.
From studying bubble dynamics we can make a model of how certain regular structures can be formed by self assembly, given sufficient bubbles to form the superstructures or the scaffolding. The formation of these dense fractal foams is often a result of pressure and temperature variations in a confined volume. Thus, the formation of the diamond crystal, for example is an example of just this notion.
The association of these structures with dynamic systems is not unusual. Some of these structures will not form unless the constituents are in the precise stability zones to form. Thus a jostling substrate is precisely what is needed to increase the likelihood of making that last leap to stability !
The formation of DNA and RNA seems to be on another level of complexity, and indeed it is, but it requires these lower levels to be in place. The many bacteriophages show evidence of differing tail formations. These tails are of interest because to form the icosahedrons requires the form to be closed, one would think. But of course, to close would trap gasses on the inside! Thus a dynamic blow hole structure actually preserves the whole structure over a larger temperature range. At this level, when I talk of a "gas" I mean the more active electrons and any smaller atoms or molecules within the capsid space. Thus the formation of a tail or blowhole structure is to be expected.
These structures now actually form, very small flasks in which defined and resonant chemical reactions may take place, they become a defined substrate for a different class of reactions.
Although I clearly cannot say how the reactions go, I do accept that the formation of complex amino acid structures within these "bottles " or flasks will be more likely, and thus they form a catalytic substrate for te reactions that develop DNA and RNA .
With this number of self assembling DNA and RNA flasks the question of reproduction is not to be found at this level. .
The next level possibly is a number of these flasks emptying their contents into a bigger bubble structure. This bigger bubble structure would be the basis for the bacterial , prokaryotic, cell..
The cluster of these capsid bottles onto the wall of a larger bubble or even combining to form the wall of the larger bubble would lead to the contents of thes bottles expelling into this new structure. Within this new structure the same processes are to be expected, thus capsid formation will occur. The question is, does this new structure make capsid formation catalytic ally more likely?
I do not know, but if it does then we need to radically rethink the process of "viral" infection. In this case it would be an underlying catalytic process made super efficient, with the bacteriophages actually "creating" as well as "destroying" the cell wall structure in a catalytic process..
We understand that the capsid formation does not always occur, and this is sufficiently rare enough to account for the apparent deadly effect of the bacteriophages masking their potential life giving creative side!
We need to think differently about bacteriophages, because they could be the structures that take us fron zombie virus to prokaryotic bacteria!
