  • Further study of the regulation of composition, physiological and physicochemical properties of the immediate environment of organs, tissues and cells, conducted by Stern and her school, is not only important theoretically, but has practical significance as well.

  • Further, good philosophers understand that Trevors and Abel propositions "There is no physicochemical causal link between codon and corresponding amino acid" and "Inanimacy cannot self-organize" pretty much closes the lid on Darwinian mechanisms as the sole reasons for the origin of complex biostructures.
