Life on the Edge

Summary ☆ Life on the Edge ô PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Johnjoe McFadden ☆ 6 Free download Free read Life on the Edge Life is the most extraordinary phenomenon in the known universe; but how did it come to be Even in an age of cloning and artificial biology the remarkable truth remains nobody has ever made anything living entirely out of dead material Life remains the only way to make life Are we still missing a vital ingredient in its creation      Like Richard Dawkins' The Selfish Gene which provided a new perspective on how evolution works Life on the Edge alters our understanding of our world's fundamental dynamics Bringi. I really appreciate well written books about science when they are written by active researchers in the field And this book ualifies as McFadden is a research biologist and Al Khalili is a theoretical physicist They are both actively engaged in researching evidence for uantum phenomena that are responsible for complex biological mechanismsThe book focuses on several important and difficult biology problems photosynthesis respiration magnetoreception bird migration consciousness genetics the sense of smell and the origin of life Each of these is still a mystery and the authors find some or a lot of evidence for uantum mechanics being an essential componentI found a couple of the issues to be particularly fascinating Some birds that migrate thousands of miles definitely use magnetoreception to find their way But the receptors are also connected with sight and reuire light in order for the magnetoreception to work And some butterflies also have magnetoreceptors on their antennae It can take three generations for some butterflies to do a complete round trip of a thousand miles or How in the world is this possibleI also found it fascinating that for photosynthesis to occur plants may use a form of a uantum computer to perform the necessary catalysis And the problem that the uantum computer solves is well known it is the traveling salesman problemThe authors freuently repeat a uote by physicist Richard Feynman If you cannot make it then you don t understand it In other words you don t really understand a biological or physical process until you can duplicate it in the lab Well that is certainly the case for the biological processes that are discussed in this book The origin of life is far from our understandingResearch on this topic is proceeding rapidly and the authors found that by the time they had finished writing the book some parts were already dated So they added an extra chapter at the end to include recent results But they recognize that by the time the book is published it will still contain some out of date ideas And that is wonderful because science is a process not an end result

Summary ☆ Life on the Edge ô PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Johnjoe McFadden ☆ 6 Free download Free read Life on the Edge Ng together first hand experience at the cutting edge of science with unparalleled gifts of explanation Jim Al Khalili and Johnjoe Macfadden reveal that missing ingredient to be uantum mechanics; the phenomena that lie at the heart of this most mysterious of sciences Drawing on recent ground breaking experiments around the world each chapter in Life on the Edge engages by illustrating one of life's puzzles How do migrating birds know where to go How do we really smell the scent of a rose How do our genes copy the. I have a problem with most of the new science books that I ve been reading lately They really aren t saying anything new and when they do they seem to enter into woo woo land The authors demonstrate nicely how certain biological processes such as the internal magnetic compass of a certain kind of Robin the photosynthesis in plants the universal energy currency of life ATP the enzyme process and how the sense of smell can all be thought best in terms of uantum mechanicsThose examples make up the first half of the book My problem with the book is the second half All objective knowledge can be broken down into the subatomic uantum mechanical level but that doesn t mean they should be The authors go off the rails and enter the land of woo with ascribing the origins of life the genetic code in general and mutations in particular and our consciousness as best understood by uantum mechanical processes As much as the next person I love the mysteries of the uantum world but I don t want to reduce the process understudy down to that level unless it is absolutely necessary I really get tired at how many authors including these refer to the problem of consciousness as the hard problem There have been many strides lately on understanding consciousness but mixing it with the woo woo of physics the way a Depak Chopra would is never the right approachIt is a pity This book had a lot going for it in the beginning because the authors as biologist really know how to explain the physics The authors tell the listener in very clear terms what Feynman meant by all the mysteries of physics are contained within the double slit experiment Everyone who reads books like this one should take the time and trouble and look up the Feynman Lectures on the Character of Physical Law on Youtube seven of the happiest hours I ever spent This book explains the double split experiment the particlewave duality the measurement problem and specifically for the book uantum tunneling entanglement coherence and superposition Also the authors really knew how to explain the steps in the scientific process a biologist needs in order to reach coherent consistent and non contradictory conclusionsI m still looking for new popular science books that teach me things I don t already know and which don t enter into the land of woo
