Read & Download Life on the Edge: The Coming of Age of uantum Biology Ü PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook M mechanics can answer these probing uestions of the universeGuiding the reader through the rapidly unfolding discoveries of the last few years Al Khalili and McFadden describe the explosive new field of uantum biology and its potentially revolutionary applications while offering insights into the biggest puzzle of all what is life As they brilliantly demonstrate in these groundbreaking pages life exists on the uantum edge Winner Stephen Hawking Medal for Science Communicati. In 2000 Johnjoe McFadden wrote a book uantum Evolution exploring how uantum mechanics is directly relevant to biology At the time the majority of biologists and physicists would have told you that uantum mechanics was largely irrelevant to biology which is warm and wet and large scale rather than the very small scale or very cold conditions most physicists associate with non classical behaviourLife on the Edge was coauthored by McFadden and Jim Al Khalili at the end of 2014 In those 14 years uantum biology has progressed from wild speculation to mainstream due in part to the work of these authors and it is interesting to compare the two booksCompared with uantum Consciousness the chapter on uantum Genetics has been both tightened up and made tentative The proposed mechanism for directed mutation using the inverse Zeno effect has been clarified and restricted There is no longer any special appeal to the many worlds interpretation of uantum mechanics The authors have rowed back significantly from ideas that uantum mechanics is generally a major driver of mutation which is a shame as it has the potential to explain some tricky bottlenecks in evolutionSimilarly the chapter on Mind is much believable The authors start by discussing Roger Penrose s ideas such as the ability of the mind to bypass the Goedel theorem by being a uantum computer Fortunately they do not undermine their own credibility by taking these ideas too seriously and in fact their analysis is a very clear critiue of Penrose s Their proposed role for uantum mechanics in ion channels seems very plausibleI am not very persuaded by the proposed link between consciousness and electromagnetism A human has a psychological and social need to be able to explain their own decisions and this explanation is generally in terms of a seuential narrative There is no necessity for this narrative to match what actually happens in the brain except in its inputs and outputs A brain is a black box to its owner almost as much as to others Electromagnetism is a possible way for the mind to work in a synchronised way but whether or not this happens is independent of the nature of consciousness Moreover it is not clear how this relates to uantum mechanics except very indirectly McFadden s earlier book uantum Consciousness tries to make the connection though in a hand wavy and not very plausible way I can see why he has dropped this idea though I think he could have removed all the references to electromagnetic theories of consciousness from this book altogether They belong in a different bookThe chapter on the beginnings of life is greatly clarified compared with similar ideas expressed in uantum Evolution The problem with any understanding of the beginnings of life is that there is a period of about 100 million years where somehow somewhere on the Earth or just maybe in space life began Presumably this happened because a self replicating molecule appeared which mutated and evolved into a modern eukaryotic cell Trying to identify the original molecule just by looking at modern cells is difficult or even impossible Replicating the start of the process might take an ocean of water and 100 million years which makes it a tricky experiment Until either of these is done we have no way of knowing what the first self replicators were or even how complex they had to be At least McFadden and Al Khalili show how the incredible search capabilities of uantum mechanics could help achieve the first step of constructing the first self replicating moleculeThe overall gist of the book is that life is a conseuence of the boundary between uantum mechanics and classical physics which seems to be key to many of the most important processes in biology from photosynthesis to respiration and scent It is hard to disagree with these conclusions Time for biologists to learn some uantum mechanics
