WHAT IS LIFE?

What is called Life is ultimately involved with the SubQuantum
entities, and with coherent soliton-like organizations of
SQ entities, which comprise the "soul" or the
"Actual Consciousness" of the physical entity,
which coherent aether-soliton (Soul) continues to exist,
even without any direct association with a physical form.
So, in manner of speaking, biological Life is correlated
with the inhabiting of that biological form by a Soul, which
habitation/attachment represents the present status of the
coherent aether-soliton which is the Actual Consciousness,
as associated with a physical form, or not.
There is nothing which does not have some manner of Consciousness,
granted that we admit that the infinitesimal "Bhutatmas"
are the smallest unit of Consciousness, as ascribed to them
by the Vedas. Then since there is nothing which is not composed
from Bhutatmas, technically speaking, there is nothing which
is not Alive. Since even individual Bhutatmas have unique
experiences, as they can cross infinite distances, at up
to infinite velocities, encountering unique conditions all
during their travels, experiences unique to each Bhutatma.
Since Souls are apparently composed of coherent assemblages
of informationally unique Bhutatmas, then every Soul is
What is really at issue, is the mystery of Biological
Life, as opposed to the other forms of Life. The common
assumption is that unless the thing is biologically alive,
it must be "inert". This concept is disastrously
wrong and has made for centuries of many different kinds
of sociological problems, all associated with the assumed
and mistaken concept that "living" can only be
due to some sort of (assumed and undefined) chemical interactions,
which eventually result in the thing "moving"
This is rather like the present unfortunate and drastically
mistaken idea that the "meat and chemicals" which
comprise biological entities are inert sort of things, which
inert stuff "somehow manages" to eventually "self-organize"(?)
to produce a Brain, with the added and unquestioned assumption
that a brain is absolutely required for there to be any
manner of Consciousness, and thinking and memory and so
on. We have strongly and physically proved that all such
concepts are wrong.
What is the point at which the Life-Force (aether-gas soliton-consciousness)
becomes directly (as opposed to indirectly) involved with
the given biological entity? This question is presently
lacking any sufficient experimental research as to provide
any definitive answer for it. Actual researches
into questions such as, "What is Life, actually?",
and, "How does it work?" are prominently and erroneously
lacking, while strangely, at the same time, every day, vast
research funding goes into investigations of weapons systems
and various ways to kill things and people. (Something is
obviously politically and psychologically wrong here.)
Clearly, there is a direct correspondence between Consciousness
and "Livingness", which has something to do with
the type of SQ soliton-assembly (Type of Soul) which becomes
involved with, or detached from, the given biological entity,
and the points in time, and the conditions under which,
these two developmental processes occur. Obviously, there
are many many different kinds of Living Biological entities,
other than human beings, so the idea that there are many
different kinds of souls, makes perfect sense. Additive
informational complexity and additional information processing
capabilities at the Soul-level, allow for increased complexities
of awarenesses, and correspondingly, these Souls can eventually
become associated with increasingly complex physical forms.
From this, we think that there are many many different kinds
of Souls, not just human ones.
So in a manner of speaking, there is a kind of evolution,
but it is evolution of the Soul, NOT anything to do with
any "evolution" of the physical vehicle as used
by the Soul. The physical vehicle itself is produced by
information-driven processes which are inherent to the Cosmic
Harmony, in company with the individual Unique Soul which
is to inhabit the vehicle.
The physical vehicle can easily arise "ab initio"
through information-driven negentropic processes, with no
mistakenly chemically-based or chemically-originated "evolutionary
processes" involved, except as the chemical system
must eventually reflect the informational organizations
which are externally imposed on the system by the Cosmic
Harmony, by way of flows of information-carrying infinitesimals.
In our previous installments, we tried to offer
our readers a brief but comprehensive understanding of some
fundamentals of the new physics, as a prerequisite for addressing,
in these new lights, progressively more complex domains,
such as Life, Brain and Consciousness. Let's start our next
major step of investigating these fascinating realms, by
taking a closer look at some of the basic considerations
regarding Life and living systems, in their most fundamental
Single cell prokaryotes (such as fossilized cyanobacteria)
have been traced back (theoretically) to the most "remote
periods" of the cosmic formation of our planet, some
four billion years ago, according to commonly accepted theory.
Many related scientific theories have been put forth over
the years, in a ceaseless attempt to explain these early
abiogenetic (non-biological) pathways, which processes might
possibly (theoretically) lead to the development of the
first "living chemical assembly" by [biopoetic]
evolutions from some supposedly self-replicating, but "nonliving"
Haldane's and Oparin's "primordial soup theory"
has inspired various biochemical speculations, as related
to some sort of "chemically reducing atmosphere",
which, during the "early cosmological times" we
are exploring, was supposed to result in a synthesis of
those basic amino acids which are common to all carbon-based
Life-forms, as resulting from "random interactions"
of supposedly inert molecular complexes, under the "specific
and required electrical conditions" which were theoretically
proposed as being the physical prerequisites which were
required to produce such assumed combinations.
Experimental replications of theoretical conjectures regarding
the "early conditions" on Earth - such as the
Miller-Urey experiment - proved to be non-conclusive, seen
the uncertainty of our knowledge regarding the amount of
molecular Oxygen available in the prebiotic ("pre-biological")
atmosphere, which, beyond a certain point in time, would
have prevented any organic molecules from ever forming,
lacking adequate molecular Oxygen required to do so, according
to this paradigm.
The idea that there might have been some sort of extraterrestrial
origin of the requisite precursor organic compounds (delivery
by carbonaceous chondrites or a gravitational attraction
of such compounds from the deep of space) brings us nothing
valuable, as far as the original BioGenesis (origins of
biological Life) is concerned- wherever it may be supposed
to have first occurred. Moreover, no such primordial monomer
accumulations can give any hint towards decoding the various
ways in which such simple organic building blocks might
have been able to polymerize into more complex structures,
which structures might then interact in exactly the proper
and required directions, so as to "magically"
eventually result in the synthesis of some sort of "protocell".
Eigen's hypothesis of a "self-replicating hyper-cycle
in a prebiotic soup", involving Information storage
systems (possibly RNA) able to launch cascade-like enzymatic
catalytic processes in a closed loop, with possible byproducts
of the ribozyme type, was an important step towards a more
accurate conceptual framework for biogenesis.
Further on, Wachtershauser's systems suggest the availability
of built-in sources of energy (such as iron sulfides) capable
of producing autocatalytic sets of self-replicating, metabolically
active entities. Such processes might have been enhanced
by radioactive actinides-generated organo-metallic complexes,
which might be favored by relevant "early gravitational
conditions" as suggested by Z. Adams. (This concept
is contradicted, to some extent, by our Continous Creation
point of view, where there is almost no such thing as any
"early gravitational conditions", since there
was never any sort of "Big Bang", nor any other
kind of "instantaneous Creation" event. Creation
is a local and continual process, and is informationally
conformed, locally.) Anyway, no provable concept regarding
the origins of life can be conceived, without defining in
the first place, the still highly controversial phenomenological
essence of, what is Life, which definition has far-reaching
taxonomic consequences and vast philosophical implications,
as we shall see.
The "conventional" definition of life requires
homeostasis, organization, metabolism, growth, adaptation,
response to stimuli, an ability to manipulate the environment,
and reproductive capabilities, as prerequisites for biological
systems. For example, S. Kaufmann's definition of life refers
to "...an autonomous multi-agent system capable of
self-reproduction and of completing at least one thermodynamic
More recent views try to establish the minimum requirements
for a bio-system to respond ably to internal and external
changes, including various regulatory mechanisms which are
subordinated to superior positive feedback-triggers (defined
as potentials of physical expansion and reproduction capabilities).
Such requirements imply a successful alignment must arise,
between at least two sets of Information, with each Information
set active in different implication layers. Furthermore,
the mutation ability requests which are thus imposed on
biological replication systems, implies a higher order of
Information control, one which must be able to supply local
adaptive benefits, as according to higher attractor blueprints.
Such benefits are supposed to be supplied to a "...self-perpetuating
open system of interlinked organic reactions, isothermally
catalyzed by the chemicals", which somehow must be
produced by the open system itself.
The most important question that arises is whether such
open systems may be fundamentally disconnected from their
background inorganic chemistry, and what can we expect to
find at the conceptual borderline between inanimate - and
"animated" forms of matter?
This topic can be approached at the microscopic level of
the viruses, specifically, in terms of viral structures
and behaviors. First, let us remember that viral capsides
(outer coating, cell walls) are composed of identical protein
subunits, which are arranged in helicoidal or icosahedral
symmetries. How does the virus become informed, regarding
the rotational symmetry rules it must apply, in order to
produce the required icosahedral configurations of these
60 identical subunits? Where does this ready-made blueprint
come from? How do enveloped viruses use cellular membranes
as guiding sites to produce the proper orientations of these
assemblies? How are the given receptor cell's chemical sites,
which can result in viral reception, recognized as absorption
targets by the given viral entity?
Such questions bring into focus the selective folding isoform
patterns of the structurally well-defined prion protein,
PrPC, which serves as a copper-dependent antioxidant alpha-helicoidal
component of the actual cell membrane. Its Information-induced,
or modulated, folding patterns are sensitive to transient
embedding actions produced by Quantum configurations, which
relate such prion protein structures to long-term memory
storage functions (e.g., defective PrP synthesis results
in experimentally detectable alterations of hippocampal
long-term potentiations, Maglio & All).
A next step toward Information-related increase in viral
complexity involves virionic nucleocapsid structures, which
are extending from a single type of protein to the tens
of proteins involved in capsid (cell wall) morphogenesis
(shape-creation) events. In non-enveloped viral structures,
the resulting capsids perform attachments which are guided
to the infected host cells, while in their enveloped variants,
glycoprotein spikes overtake the task of a chemotactic search-engine,
conferring viral specificity (tropism) according to the
surface markers which are supplied by the cell membrane.
The current Baltimore classification of viral nucleic acid
structures discriminates RNA versus DNA (single or double-stranded)
viral genomes. This taxonomic range has been extended by
the recent discovery of an 800 nanometer giant, called the
"Mimi virus", which carries about 1260 genes,
by means of which this giant virus is actually able to internally
synthesize proteins, conferring to this virus, a bacterium-like
degree of complexity. Thus a fourth life form, beyond bacteria,
archaea and eukaryotic structures has been introduced by
the Mimi virus, along with the seven genes which are common
to all cellular life. These discoveries have opened the
hypothesis that perhaps eukaryotes actually originate in
bacteria, by supplying ribosomes "infected" by
genetic stuff injected by the virus in the form of a sort
of "proto-nucleus" made of DNA.
It is to be emphasized, that the complex genome of the
Mimi virus, the only virus detected yet, which appears to
be based on both RNA and DNA, inherently contains elements
that blur any clear-cut distinctions between life and non-life
forms of energy manifestation. In mapping out the genetic
sequence of the Mimi virus, French researchers found some
1.2 million pairs of Information storing Boolean units,
encoding some 1200 proteogenetic micro-programs. The translation
genes which are carried by the Mimi virus defy any need
for this particular virus to rely on the protein-engineering
abilities of any host cell.
Conventional science meets increasing paradoxes when trying
to make clear-cut differentiations between the matter/energy
structures which are assembling in life forms versus the
structures and requirements of "non-alive" forms.
As such investigations become deeper, such attempts to make
energy-based distinctions, become increasingly blurred.
A new approach is required for an accurate understanding
of the essence of life. This new approach has to transcend
current physical limitations and energetic interpretations,
shifting the pivotal attention of modern research into the
Information fields, which are implied in the origination
and patterning of life forms. Several scientific advancements
seem to have paved the way for our SubQuantum model's high
explanatory potential, in the framework of this novel paradigmatic
How do such simple organic molecules manage to
succeed in assembling themselves into a very complex "protocell"?
RNA has the dual capability of both storing Information,
and also acting to catalyze chemical reactions. Experimentally
produced, replicase RNA, functions both as an Information
code, and a catalyst, providing the template on which actual
genetic replications are performed. The right self-replicating
conditions, for joint and small-activated mono-RNA nucleotide
sequences, into longer chains, imply that an original non-random
frequency selection must exist, one which increases catalytic
speeds and which leads eventually to S.Kaufmann's "collective
autocatalytic sets". Such conformal collectivities
require that coherent behaviors must be supplied by teleological
attractors, which appear to operate along retro-causational
vectors (that is, originating from future bio-system informational
"blueprints", which are then eventually produced
Such Information streams have been available to reactant
protein structures in biological cells, throughout time,
in the form of crystalline Information transferences, as
has been proved by Kahr's experiments on crystals of potassium
hydrogen phthalate (2007). Of course, this complex gene-like
Information transference ability, significantly exceeds
the similar ability, as supplied by crystal conduction patterns,
which process is rapidly overtaking the task of exponentially
increasing differentiation/adaptation speeds of various
conformal reactions, as displayed by sequentially higher
forms of life. Again, the borderline between living and
"non-living" systems is becoming increasingly
Current research programs address the biosystems in terms
of a special feedback-coupling interaction, between a coherent
biophotonic EM field and biological matter, where the location
and activity of matter are under control of this field,
while at the same time, the biological form provides boundary
conditions for the field. The interference patterns of this
fully coherent field involve the Information necessary for
implementing preselected cell-regulatory functions. These
dynamically changing interference patterns reflect complex
space-time interactions are occurring between the organizing
fields and the organized energy-driven matter that conforms,
by Quantum mediation, to the regulating programs. According
to these nonlinear biophysical actions, matter/energy distribution
patterns must follow, by imposed entropic guidelines, and
Informational modulations, which are acting in a wholistic
hierarchical structure of holonomic (holographic) interactions.
The human body's 10^13 cells are generated by 43 successive
rounds of cell divisions. The 10^7 dying cells every second
have to be instantly replaced by a perfectly equivalent
amount of new ones in order to avoid a quick bodily disintegration.
This prerequisite implies a far more efficient signalization
and inter-cell coordinating connectedness then the one which
can be supplied by mere chemical messengers. This signaling
process has to run, according to F. Popp's computation,
in the superluminal velocity ranges. Such Information transfer
systems are the ones operating in Kurakov's "hidden
time domain", which corresponds to our infinite velocity
SubQuantum Information transferences, exceeding former efficiency
values as, e.g., those supplied by mitogenetic radiations.
Nevertheless, unfolded regulatory systems may operate at
cellular interconnectedness levels governed by chemistry
also, as it is the case for the carcinogen 3,4 benzpyrene,
with a strong absorption/emission anomalies in the ultraviolet
range of the spectrum which are related to mitogenetic radiations.
The superiority of biophotonic regulations, relative to
existing molecular dogmas, has recently been proved by A.B.
Burlakov's experiments, where biophotonic activities, in
the absence of any actions by chemical/genomic activities,
have produced obvious changes, at the level of the actual
biological life processes.
Similar experimental results, and many far-reaching conclusions
deriving from them, are reported by P.P.Gariaev & All,
concerning the ways the chromosomal DNA control is implemented,
by the already supplied chemical DNA matrices, and by way
of of biological wave-functions which are structurally related
to holographic system-memories. As Popp has pointed out,
in order to implement efficient intercellular electromagnetic
couplings, cellular photon emissions must have the qualities
of multimodal, multifrequency laser beams, which are similar
to those which have been used in Gariaev's experiments.
This implies high coherence and harmony requirements, in
which malignant processes are suppressed, as proved by the
increasing photon counts which are observed during increasing
cell densities, as associated with increasing malignant
hepatic cell populations. This points to the ultimately
deterministic roles that Informational controls and guidances
have, in the multiple scales of the various life phenomena,
from biochemical to enviro-organismic, with effects that
range all the way to interpersonal relations, and to groups
of ontologically collective behaviors, on through all the
various integration levels.
Bottom-to-top chemically-based biogenesis theories
have to be dropped by now, to be replaced by the more accurate
Informational Regulation tenets, which apply, without exception,
through all scales of manifestation, as all physical manifestations
are controlled by Informations provided from outside the
One has only to perceive the various and abundant hints
which Nature provides us, to correctly understand the way
It's enough to consider that an inanimate crystalline viral
structure apparently turns into a living system, only after
being placed inside a ready-made biofield which is, in biogenesis
processes, an already-existing Informational biofield, as
an unavoidable prerequisite. This field has an Informational
Essence which is carried around by aetheric fluxes of SubQuantum
entities, which are acting as the precursors for more complex
morphogenetic fields (an important topic which will be touched
in due time).
Living systems are not a prerequisite for Information processing,
but a result of it.
Living systems are aiming at nonlinear increases of their
personal efficiencies, during the processes of interacting
informationally with their particular and associated environmental

during our future installments.
