How Life’s Intelligence Evolves From Genes/genome intelligence

 

Intelligence:

The core (wordnet.princeton) definition of “intelligence” is “the ability to comprehend, to understand and profit from experience”. These surviving abilities are different for different cultures, for the different phenotypes within a genotype, therefore each phenotype has its own “specific intelligence”. Intelligence is culture-specific, like material’s specific weight or specific heat.

All biological entities are intelligent. It takes intelligence to survive, i.e. to temporarily constrain more energy in order to postpone the self-constitutional energy fueling the cosmic expansion.

 Multicellular organisms, including WE,

– derive from communities of cooperative monocellular organisms, “cultures”  that

– derive from cooperative associations of DNA (or RNA) genes, genomes, which are also organisms, that

– were evolved, are produced and employed by RNA genes, which are Earth’s primary base organisms.

– ALL Earth’s organisms are evolved RNAs.

 Shock yourself:

– Imagine plants upside down. Their root system are their head/brain complex.

– Other, non-self-replicating spin arrays mass formats, regardless of size, f.e. black holes, are “intelligent”, too. Even if they do not have “comprehension” and/or “understanding” mechanisms, they do, too, “profit from experience” and try gobbling mass or energy to prolong their temporary survival, to postpone sharing the fate of all spin-array mass-formats as fuel for expanding the cosmos, for reconverting the mass resolved at the big-bang back into energy.

– The RNAs, Earth’s primal organisms, most probably “profit from experience”, too, when they select an alternative splicing route-conformation  (“Whence And Whither, On Life’s Twist”) . Their this natural selection is established promptly upon  the demonstrated contribution  of the alternative splicing/new modified expression to the proliferation of the genes

From SA to Dov:

Dov, Apoptosis is a miraculous thing. An apoptotic cell remind me of a samurai who never thinks twice before killing himself. There is a difference between suicidal samurai and apoptosis, though. Samurai’s death comes because of his sick ideology. Apoptosis comes as an act of altruism. Apoptosis teaches us that altruism is not intrinsic to higher forms of life, like mammals, birds, crocodiles, etc. It is an essential property of cells, or (in your term) of spaceships full of genes. Apoptosis is an active process. Apoptotic cell is not just dying because of the lack of food or oxygen. There are genes inside it, such crews, that run around destroying the spaceship and other teammates (apoptosis includes chopping DNA in pieces).

Apoptosis is our natural protection from cancer – cancerous cells normally appear in our bodies right and left, but they kill themselves actively. Apoptosis is our protection from autoimmunity – if an immune cell suddenly attacks other cells of its own body, it immediately realizes its own mistake and kills itself. Apoptosis is a way of body development – you probably know that embryo’s palms are just little disks at first, and then fingers appear because some cells die in between, making separate fingers. Apoptosis, or suicidal death, is a way of life on this planet, at the molecular level. Thus, life is full of not only competition, but also altruism, at a very basic level.

Now, some gene crews are not as altruistic. They refuse to sacrifice themselves for the sake of other adjacent space stations. Then people get cancer, or autoimmune disorders, or developmental anomalies.

I thought this supports you hypothesis.

From Dov to SA:

SA, I promised “no more”, but your message invites a comment:

In my opinion you anthropomorphize apoptosis. Altruism, as well as every other human abstract idea or concept, is just one of our tools, a cultural tool, used by humans ( maybe by other terms by other poly-cell organisms )  in the biological drive for genome replication.

Dov Henis: life sciences should comprehend/extend all aspects of biological evolution implications to/ in ALL organisms down to and including genes and genomes”

– The RNAs, Earth’s primal organisms, most probably “profit from experience”, too, when facing a new challenge and  called to select an alternative splicing route-conformation  (“Whence And Whither, On Life’s Twist”) . Their this natural selection is established promptly upon  the demonstrated contribution  of the alternative splicing/new modified expression to the prospective efficiency of  the proliferation of the genes

 – And their this added prospective proliferation efficiency is their profit from their experience, their intelligence,  and is the basest base of our  intelligence…
