Musings-Origins of Life

Origin of Life: A plausible mechanism for the origin of life  where replication arose before metabolism.
Random bumping of atoms occur based on statistical probabilities,(reaction in a liquid such as water) followed by quantum entanglement,chemical bonds are formed, purine rings are formed which via entanglement (i.e quantum entanglement of the wave functions/states of the electrons of the constituent atoms)  chains of purine rings are formed that form RNA. (I modify this to atoms whose resonance frequencies match undergo entanglement)
 For propagation of information,i.e. sequence of bases, via  RNA , through entanglement and subsequent base pairing , double stranded RNA is formed.
 For "energy efficient" propagation of RNA, metabolism arose , so that amino acids tether onto this RNA to form peptides via  entanglement.
Since large chunks of information have to be propagated in an energy efficient  way and RNA is unstable, the blueprint of life DNA arose.
So is life energy efficient propagation of information, where increase in entropy leads to species complexity.
Species Complexity ultimately declines after all energy efficient possible combinations have arisen and which now need to be maintained followed by gradual decline , because entropy of the universe increases (2nd law of Thermodynamics) but total energy remains the same (Ist law of thermodynamics).
This is counter intuitive as in the classical world, presently, during cell cycle G1 (metabolic) comes before the S (replicative) phase.
Since the cell has to be energy efficient inorder  to replicate and divide, the classical cell cycle is where metabolism precedes replication. It is  different from the underlying quantum origins of life, where replication precedes metabolism.
The idea is that the entanglement of components of the wave functions give rise to higher order structures.

Assumptions-Are they related to cognitive biases ?

Can we say that an assumption is  a cognitive bias.

Assumption-For what there is no evidence but it is still taken to be true.
Google definition-a thing that is accepted as true or as certain to happen, without proof.

cognitive bias is a mistake in reasoning, evaluating, remembering, or other cognitive process, often occurring as a result of holding onto one's preferences and beliefs regardless of contrary information. 
So when a person is making a select assumption could that person be unknowingly tapping into their inherent cognitive bias e.g. assumption from memory=availability  heuristic cognitive bias.

Based on this argument "all research" in which each piece of research has some sort of hidden assumptions has inherent cognitive biases of the researcher.


The same observation can be made by different human beings. However since each brain acts as a filter the same observation can have a different interpretations depending on that particular person. Therefore the same dataset can be interpreted differently by persons of different caliber/different algorithms/persons with specializations in different subjects.

Naturalism in Ancient India-Speculations

The phenomenal world-A human sees a green leaf. A cat sees a grey leaf. Thus the phenomenal world of experience is a function of the genetic system of  a particular biological species. It is impermanent according to advaita vedanta adherents or advaitins , since it changes from one species to another.
Advaitins ascribe to the "universal conscious principle" underlying it all. To my mind the first thing that comes with the word "universal" in the light of present day theories in the realm of scientific investigation are "entangled energy fields", which vibrate to give rise to particles, which interact to give rise to higher orders of emergence. The word "conscious" implies in normal terms "aware". How can energy fields be aware. Awareness arises from emergence. The word "chit" of sanskrit has been "translated" to consciousness/awareness. "Chit"means &quo…
