RNA alone is a good enough self replicating life form that arose first before we the rest of the cell machinery. This would be the most extreme form of the RNA world hypothesis. There is no need for anything else to evolve to claim that life has arisen.
“Now, a pair of Scripps Research Institute scientists has taken a significant step toward answering that question. The scientists have synthesized for the first time RNA enzymes that can replicate themselves without the help of any proteins or other cellular components, and the process proceeds indefinitely.” From https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/01/090109173205.htm
Good to find someone else who appreciates this book. Probably the best book on India in a long time.
I apologize for tldr.
I think the most important thing is to prevent death of cells from low oxygen.
If you solve he problem of nervous tissue dying from lack of oxygen, then you solve all coom problems like drowning, heart attacks, etc. Anything that cuts off oxygen will not kill you and. You will be invincible like a cockroach.
reference to the fmri paper please ?
My intuitive view is that human minds cannot be simulated by turing machines because Qualia are not explained by computation. I beleive Roger Penrose’s views are similar.
However useful Philosophical Zombie like AI can be created by turing computation. I Think the Blindsight novel https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blindsight_(Watts_novel) describes a world where conscious and non consious intelligences both exist.

What do you think of Roger Penrose’s idea that these algorithms will never really understand anything. Consciousness and true understanding in the way a human understands, require new physics that can explain consciousness.
Why doesn’t this trial get more publicity?
Ivermectin was dropped for futility, Fluvoxamine trial stopped for superiority! Fluvoxamine rules!
What are ancillaries. Clones?
What was that?
What is your summary ? Are BPD and ASC opposites?
My experience is that BPD are followers. ASC are loners.
How can this be used by me right now in my life?
Does risk of myocarditis caused by vaccine run in the family? So if the parent gets myocarditis from vaccine or natural covid; do the children have an increased risk ? Other health risk factors are sometimes inherited, so it would be nice to know if vaccine side effect risks are too.
That way you could vaccinate yourself and spouse first, and only then vaccinate the kids.
Low interest rates are like giving free money to banks etc . Why not just give us ordinary people free money ? Why don’t I get to borrow at the fed rate ? I will happily provide colateral. The right question is not why the fed sets interest rates, but why it does not provide the same rates directly to everyone including us little folk while cutting out the banking middlemen. We should all have a a fed account.
Looks like I was confused and thought that FFP2 is just a simple cloth mask. Also my country only requires a simple face covering instead of a N95 or FFP-2 mask.
I am curious ,what does the data say? Is wearing even a poorly fitting mask better at preventing you from spreading covid compared to not wearing amask at all?
Some images will be helpful to understand what you are saying.
