News of a recent Nobel Prize awarded to two researchers who have been studying protein receptors which are part of our human bodies and facilitate a form of "communication" between our cells. Our Roger's posts have piqued my interest in this area.
Here is a link to an interesting animation which attempts to help us visualize how a form of these G-Proteins functions. Ironically, this video is copyright McGraw-Hill which also operates the moron S&P rating agency, I guess too bad McGraw-Hill doesn't have as intelligent folks working at their S&P group as they have working at their biology education group here, but I digress.
From the article announcing the Nobel:
Since the discovery of cells in the 17th century, scientists have understood that these building blocks of life are constantly exposed to myriad chemical signals, which are then recognized, interpreted, and translated into a cellular response. But until around 20 years ago, how cells did this was a mystery.
Taking on the problem in the late 1960s, Lefkowitz set about trying to isolate receptors from cell membranes. He attached iodine isotopes to various hormones to track their paths through cells in the lab. His experiments revealed several cell surface receptors, including the β2-adrenergic receptor, which responds to adrenaline to regulate the body’s fight-or-flight response.So it can be looked at as though these biochemical sub-units of our bodies "communicate" based on the input from our "real world" or cognitive language communication in the brain.
Here these researchers have isolated protein receptors that regulate our body's response to "fight or flight" situations that we encounter in our cognitive experience.
I've often observed Mike's videos where Mike confronts one or more of these morons and it seems that Mike is able to get them in a "fight or flight" situation. It looks to me that they exclusively take the "flight" option, and refuse to engage Mike.
If they didn't, they would certainly lose the "fight" which would lead to their education and a change in their point of view.
Their "path of flight" always seems to include language communication that contains a false metaphor. We've seen it recently with Mike's appearance on The Blaze where the host there was put in a "fight or flight" situation by Mike and fled the situation via literally a request for "help" and the metaphor then delivered by Miller "gobbledegook". We can observe many other instances where Mike has fomented this same chain of behavioral events in the morons.
This is interesting.
Mike, simply through language, places these people in a "fight or flight" situation, and then apparently one of these G-protein receptors, acting as a virtual "regulator", somehow chemically "guides them" into the "flight" option, where the "path of flight" is also apparently facilitated by language.
So, if these Nobel winning researchers have indeed identified the protein receptors that "regulate our body's response to 'fight or flight' situations", then there has to be some sort of virtual "link" between our language and our biochemistry.
And then we could ask: What if anything is guiding the "regulator"? Or are these "regulators" static? Or do these regulator proteins possess a form of "hardwired judgement"?
This "link", whatever it is, seems to be malfunctioning within the morons and those who are remaining morons.
