5. THEORY OF LIFE
The following paragraphs present the main ideas about the theory of life, its nature, origin, and evolution.
5.a) Conditional Evolution
The new fundamental development in the Conditional Evolution is the idea of the evolution as an internal mechanism of improvement of living beings, that transmits to descendants and that, given the complexity of the aspects involved, use many systems, methods or procedures depending on each case on its particular conditions.
The Conditional Evolution can summarize as follows:
The main characteristic of life is Freedom
All life has an intrinsic tendency to widen the sphere of freedom using evolution
There are many evolutionary systems, methods or processes and their configuration depends on specific conditions in each case.
The broadest sense of freedom means the possibility of overcoming determinism or freeing oneself from the bounds of nature's laws of physics, increasing the range of potentials of living beings. Regardless of quantitative aspects, this concept would exist since the beginning of life.
Although this concept is substantial, it is not essential to the Conditional Evolution within a scientific approach.
Specific areas of freedom are so small that can be imperceptible to humans. However, it does not mean that they do not exist or that we cannot detect their nature through intuition and study them with the help of theoretical or experimental models. On the other hand, the advances in scientific instruments are continuously increasing the limits of our intelligent perception.
The term “conditional evolution” does not refer to the needs to adapt to conditions to survive, but to the generation of improvements since the beginning of life to be more independent from the environmental restrictions.
Likewise, it refers not only to the environmental conditions and restrictions but also to those conditions derived from the internal logic and dynamic of an evolutionary system.
Point three, the Conditional Evolution could seem too general. The explanation of the whole variety of methods used by Nature would make a brief and concise presentation impossible. Moreover, the list of means would be too long and incomplete.
The central ideas of this alternative theory of life and evolution are the variety of methods and conditions.
At the same time, we can cite especially the evolutionary mechanism of sexual differentiation and the method of Verification of Genetic Information (VGI) as the new key to the theory of evolution of life.
There is a brief resume of the global perspective of the alternative theory of evolution below. On the one hand, there are some characteristics regarding the nature of life, and on the other hand, the multiple conditions that can affect the evolution, together with the theories behind them.
Also, there are the causes, methods or mechanisms of conditional evolution of life separated between conditions imposed by exogenous or environmental factors and endogenous conditions derived from the dynamics of an evolutionary system.
5.b) Origin of life
The Conditional Evolution represents, at least, an element of reflection on the long road of scientific knowledge.
Regardless of the philosophical suggestions, this new theory of evolution and the origin of life presents revolutionary aspects within a scientific approach.
Every theory of evolution is, at the same time, an opinion on the origin of life although some authors make attempts to conceal it or avoid talking about the possible definition of life.
Likewise, every theory on the origin of life will have a profound influence when it comes to interpreting the fossil record and the rest of aspects regarding paleontology, especially those concerning the evolution of man.
The results of the statistical validation of the model on the inheritance of intelligence have been entirely satisfactory. We must be aware that, a priori, a direct relationship between the General Theory of the Conditional Evolution of Life and the hereditary nature of intelligence may not exist. Nevertheless, the fact that it provides a logical basis for said nature which is, furthermore, verified should mean a great impulse towards the acceptance of the new theory.
Independently of the philosophical repercussions on the origin of life and the sociological consequences of evolution, the Conditional Evolution contains revolutionary aspects from the scientific method perspective. For example, the explanation of the sexual differentiation functionality, the higher precision in the definition of the dominant and recessive genes, and other implications like the possible non-existence of the missing link of the human evolution. The evolutionary leaps usually will produce new species by combining two or three different genetic sources.
To summarise, the following conclusions about origin and evolution of life are:
Evolution is a consequence of the development of genetic information throughout the life of living beings.
Verification and complementarity
The most relevant and appropriate concepts are the existence or otherwise of external verification of genetic information and presence or otherwise of complementarity between two or more characters.
Sexual differentiation may imply specialization of the evolution of life in the sense that one sex specializes in genetic evolution and the other in the improvement of material technology for the development of the new being.
Furthermore, it allows the transmission of a validated copy of the genetic information that guarantees the viability of the offspring.
Improvement, feasibility, and optimization
Sexual differentiation contributes the most to the improvement, feasibility, and optimization of the evolution of superior animals since they entail an extremely complex evolutionary system.
It permits the utilization of the method of Verification of the Genetic Information (VGI) in various processes throughout the lives of the living beings, with different mechanisms and several degrees or variations of said method.
Gene expression and significativity
The so-called recessive gene is, in fact, the more powerful and evolved of the two, in those cases where verification is one of the conditions associated with the transmitted information. Therefore, the Conditional Evolution changes its terminology denominating significant gene to those genes which act as a restriction on the expression of its functions related to a particular process.
Vital impulse systems
The research methodology may also be useful for studying complex models, as the vital impulse systems.
A computer simulation of this theory of the origin of life and evolution is found in the free pool game Esnuka, allowing intuitive assimilation of new concepts, even by children.
