Viruses and Network Consciousness

My reading of animal behavior has led me to understand the principle of emotional conductivity as the connective glue of animal consciousness, and hence, a new way of understanding what constitutes information in the animal mind. Information equals consciousness converting environmental inputs into emotional, temperamental values. Since I can see the same primal code at work in all the animals I’ve known, I’ve presumed that there is a network consciousness encompassing all of life and all of life as constituting the domain of energy. This is consistent with Darwin’s conviction that “we are all netted.” This is what has particularly captivated me with the Constructal Law (“Design In Nature” by Adrian Bejan) which demonstrates that objects of resistance are incorporated into an underlying current as an improvement of a configuration. Since viruses directly interface with the DNA of cells, it occurred to me that they are also part of the network consciousness. We are not at war with viruses, they like bacteria, are part of a dynamic auto-tuning mechanism. (BTW it is still believed in some quarters that testosterone is an anti-social influence as well. That’s how far behind the mainstream science on dogs is behind this latest kind of research. My point is we don’t have to wait for the studies to be done, they’re already being performed in the nature of the dogs we live and work with.) My hunch is that viruses tweak the gene code so that the genome is informed about environmental exigencies. I believe the following article confirms this view of information as the result of a network consciousness.

    “In the standard model of protein synthesis, the sequence of nucletotides in DNA is faithfully copied into RNA, which in turn is used to create the exact sequence of amino acids specified by that DNA….

    While this mechanism still holds true, the adherence between DNA sequence and protein structure isn’t as solid as once thought. It turns out that there are many discrepancies between RNA and DNA. 

    …Although there are enzymes (deaminases) that alter RNA sequences as compared to their DNA templates, these enzymes cannot account for nearly half of the RDDs discovered by the team. As of now, the mechanism behind those changes remains unknown.

    These data bring into question just how much we can know about ourselves from sequencing our genomes. Thanks to the RDDs, two individuals with the same DNA sequence might very well end up with different proteins, and consequently, different health risks or physical or mental attributes.”


    “Although genetic material is readily exchanged within groups, gene transfer from one group to another has not been observed.  Until now….

    …this particular virus includes the gene for a protein that has only been seen in RNA viruses. This strongly suggests that this gene hopped from an RNA virus into a DNA virus, an unprecedented event….

    Think for a minute what this must have entailed. …

    To be incorporated into a DNA genome, the viral RNA gene would have had to have been reverse transcribed into DNA, requiring an enzyme that retroviruses supply, but that is not present in cells or other types of viruses. Yet, somehow this event must have occurred to create the virus found by the researchers.

    Exchanging bits between two different RNA viruses or between two DNA viruses requires little more than a bit of cutting and pasting. If viruses can also transfer genes between groups, the possibilities for new combinations go up dramatically.”

    Modern dog behavioral study, with its insularity from other biological sciences, logical leaps, and emphasis on morality and campaigning, really bears a stronger resemblance to a political-religious movement than a science.

  3. Some others are thinking along similar lines; a quote from Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt:

    “Today I take a very different approach to Lyme disease,” Dr. Klinghardt says. “I look at it as nature mingling with our genes. They are trying to incorporate their genome into our genome… Most of the time it goes wrong but sometimes it goes well. This is like the point I want to make upfront; that I take this more evolutionary view of it.

Books about Natural Dog Training by Kevin Behan

In Your Dog Is Your Mirror, dog trainer Kevin Behan proposes a radical new model for understanding canine behavior: a dog’s behavior and emotion, indeed its very cognition, are driven by our emotion. The dog doesn’t respond to what the owner thinks, says, or does; it responds to what the owner feels. And in this way, dogs can actually put people back in touch with their own emotions. Behan demonstrates that dogs and humans are connected more profoundly than has ever been imagined — by heart — and that this approach to dog cognition can help us understand many of dogs’ most inscrutable behaviors. This groundbreaking, provocative book opens the door to a whole new understanding between species, and perhaps a whole new understanding of ourselves.
  Natural Dog Training is about how dogs see the world and what this means in regards to training. The first part of this book presents a new theory for the social behavior of canines, featuring the drive to hunt, not the pack instincts, as seminal to canine behavior. The second part reinterprets how dogs actually learn. The third section presents exercises and handling techniques to put this theory into practice with a puppy. The final section sets forth a training program with a special emphasis on coming when called.
