Take a moment to think about the large brain of a neuroscientist:
"To become a neurosurgeon, at OHSU a physician must accomplish the following:
- graduate from an accredited medical school (four years);
- complete a one-year surgical internship in the Department of Neurological Surgery [that] builds fundamental clinical skills;
complete seven years in the neurosurgical residency program accredited by the American Council on Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
During this residency training, neurosurgeons are trained in all aspects of neurosurgery, including the cerebrovascular system, the spine and spinal cord, trauma, tumors, pain management and pediatric surgery. Residents complete a minimum of 60 months of training in the neurological sciences, with at least 36 of those months are devoted to clinical neurosurgery and a minimum of 3 months devoted to clinical neurology."
(What is Neurosurgery). Even with all of that education and experience their brains are not as competent, by a long shot, compared to the smallest brains considered (The Undiscovered Side of Science & Life - 3, The Tiniest Scientists Are Very Old - 2).
Of course I am personifying the dynamics of DNA and RNA for emphasis, because it is a powerful technique:
"Everyone knows what a person is, but do you know what personification is?
|Perhaps it needs a pet rock|
(Examples of Personification: What It Is and How to Use It, emphasis added). For an out of this world martian example see The Doll As Metaphor - 8 and other posts in that series.
Personification has no place in the study of DNA and RNA specifically, genetics in general, and for that matter cosmology:
"The problem with this carbon-based picture is that carbon is a "late-bloomer" (compared to the other dolls):
Big Bang was not an explosion in space, as the theory's name might
suggest. Instead, it was [natural doll and selection doll quivering,
causing] the appearance of space [space doll] everywhere in the universe
[universe doll], researchers have said. According to the Big Bang
theory, the universe was born [dolls R born] as a very hot, very dense,
single point in space [space doll and universe doll are hot, dense, and
Cosmologists are unsure what happened before this moment" (Space).
So, the hot doll, a.k.a. universe doll, banged but did not explode, but the doll scientists do not know why it didn't choose to explode (gay dolls?).
Then the universe doll and space doll looked around at
the environment [environment doll] and decided that the best thing to do
was to change and become a gas or two while having an expansive feeding
the universe [doll] was very young — something like a hundredth of a
billionth of a trillionth of a trillionth of a second (whew!) [the time doll
was not conjured until shortly after that] — it underwent an incredible
growth spurt. During this burst of expansion, which is known as
inflation [inflation doll], the universe [doll] grew exponentially and
doubled in size at least 90 times [what about space doll and environment
"The universe [doll] was expanding, and as it expanded, it got cooler and less dense [enlightenment]," David Spergel, a theoretical [doll] astrophysicist at Princeton University in Princeton, N.J., told SPACE.com. After inflation, the universe [doll] continued to grow, but at a slower rate [diet doll]."
"As space [doll] expanded, the universe [doll] cooled and matter formed [matter doll]."
"Light chemical elements were created [light chemical dolls] within the first three minutes of the universe [doll's] formation. As the universe [doll] expanded, temperatures cooled and protons and neutrons collided [proton and neutron dolls] to make deuterium [deuterium doll], which is an isotope of hydrogen [of course dummy]. Much of this deuterium [deuterum doll] combined to make helium [helium and shelium dolls]."
"For the first 380,000 years after the Big Bang [bang doll], however, the intense heat [heat doll] from the universe's creation [heat doll was hot] made it essentially too hot for light to shine [it's dark inside hot dolls]. Atoms [atom dolls] crashed together with enough force [force doll] to break up into a dense, opaque plasma of protons, neutrons and electrons that scattered light like fog [fog doll]."(Space)
"Every carbon atom in the universe was created by stars [star dolls]" (ScienceDaily, emphasis added).
"So, what does that have to do with nucleotides, Dredd" you may be wondering, so, get ready for another dollar story (Big Bang nucleosynthesis)."
(Quantum Biology - 9). Making up imaginary personifications of genes is no way to do hard science.
Getting back to the neurosurgeon, with all of her or his training they cannot move atoms in and out of molecules with their bare hands like "the small brains" we are considering today can.
Remember that "the small brains" within a cell move atoms from one molecule to another (e.g. when making mRNA from DNA" Appendix QB.7.1, Appendix QB.7.2, Appendix QB.7.3, Appendix QB.7.4, Appendix QB.7.5, Appendix QB.7.6, Appendix QB.7.7, Appendix QB.7.8; Appendix QB.8.1).
The DNA molecule component thymine ('T') becomes uracil ('U') when mRNA is made from a microbe's DNA, which involves a considerable small brain if you will:
"That quantum surgeon became capable of removing specific atoms from DNA molecules in order to make RNA molecules (Some Of My Best Friends Are Germs).
Specifically, I am focusing on the instant when thymine 'T' (C5H6N2O2) was changed into uracil 'U' (C4H4N2O2).
A contrary hypothesis is that RNA emerged within the conglomeration first, because it is a more simple segment (fewer moving parts) of the conglomeration, thus, one carbon atom and two hydrogen atoms were added to uracil 'U' (C4H4N2O2) to make thymine 'T' (C5H6N2O2).
In the series about the mass-production-of animals-for-food industry (a large entity "in bed" with big pharma) I hypothesize the origin of the Ninja and why 'it morphs' (Planned obsolescence).
That series begins here.
