Example text

Schrödinger predicts that revelation will come from “the material carrier of life” (pg. 5)—the self-reproducing unit of hereditary information or gene found on the chromosome which he considered “an aperiodic crystal” (Pg. 5) or “solid” (Pg. 65), or probably only an axial skeleton fibre of what we actually see under the microscope as the chromosome, that contain in some kind of code-script the entire patterns of the individual’s future development and of its functioning in the mature state (Pg. 22).

122 Still, the relevance of Hayflick numbers and telomeres to cellular longevity is unclear. The Hayflick numbers may not be relevant at all to stem cells. According to the cell physiologists, Potten and Loeffler: [I]n a 70 year life-span the small intestinal crypt stem cells in man might divide 5000 times. 123 Hayflick numbers may still be relevant to the determination of senescence in fibroblasts, but, at the moment, a cell’s history of divisions is not easily tied to its death, and no less to the death of the organisms.

143 Basically, the DNA/genes, which determine virtually everything about us, are quintessentially selfish. Their objective or intention, like that of parasites, is merely to perpetuate themselves by moving from one adult host to the next (leaving the sinking [somatoplasmic] ship). One might wonder why at least some DNA/genes (my own, for instance) would not be satisfied with replicating indefinitely through my own cells, without moving to another vessel in another generation? The answer may be that while some DNA/genes are happy within the organisms they have built, other genes are not, and, out of discontent or jealousy, unhappy genes develop counter-strategies for defeating happy DNA/genes.
