V. THEORY OF LIFE
The following paragraphs present the main ideas of the General Theory of Conditional Evolution of Life:
V.1. Definition of life and the GTCEL
The new fundamental development in the General Theory of Conditional Evolution of Life 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 based on its particular conditions.
The General Theory of Conditional Evolution of Life 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 individual case.
The concept of freedom is in its widest sense and means the possibility of overcoming determinism or freeing oneself from the bounds of nature's laws of physics, increasing the range of possibilities of living beings. Regardless quantitative aspects, this concept would exist since the beginning of life.
Although this concept is very important, it is not essential to the General Theory of Conditional Evolution of Life in its scientific side or validity.
Certain areas of freedom are so small that can be imperceptible to humans. However, that 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" refers to, not that evolution comes because life needs to adapt to conditions to survive, but that since the beginning of life by mean of evolution it generates improvements to be more independent of the environmental restrictions.
Likewise, this term "conditional evolution" refers not only to the environmental conditions and restrictions but also to those conditions derived from the nature, internal logic and dynamic of any evolutionary system.
Point three the General Theory of Conditional Evolution of Life could seem too general. This is due to the fact that explanation of the whole variety of methods used by Nature would mean not only that presentation of the theory in a brief and concise way would be impossible, but also that the list would be too long and incomplete.
The two important ideas of this alternative theory of life and evolution are the variety of methods and conditions.
At the same time, I can cite especially the evolutionary mechanism of sexual differentiation and the method of Verification of Genetic Information (VGI) as the new key on theory of evolution, origin of life, human evolution and intelligence evolution.
You may find a brief resume of the global perspective of the alternative theory of evolution below. On one hand, there are some characteristics regarding the nature of life, and on other hand, the multiple conditions that can affect evolution of life together with the theories behind them.
In addition, 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 any evolutionary system.
This theory of evolution of life 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 of the origin of life presents revolutionary aspects within a scientific approach.
Every theory of evolution is, at the same time, a theory on the origin of life although attempts are being made 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 fully satisfactory. We must be aware that, a priori, a direct relation between the General Theory of the Conditional Evolution of Life and the hereditary nature of intelligence may not exist. Nevertheless, the fact that the GTCEL provides a logical basis for said nature which is, furthermore, verified should mean an important impulse towards the acceptance of the new theory.
Independently of the philosophical repercussions on the origin of life and the sociological consequences on evolution, the General Theory of the Conditional Evolution of Life contains, from my point of view, really revolutionary aspects from the position of the scientific method, such as the explanation of the sexual differentiation functionality, the greater 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 normally will produce new species because of combining two or three different genetic sources.
To summaries, the following conclusions about origin and evolution of life can be inferred:
In this theory of the origin of Life, 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 existence or otherwise of complements between two or more characters.
Improvement, feasibility and optimization
Together sexual differentiation and external verification allow the transmission of a validated copy of the genetic information that guarantees the viability of the new being and of evolution of life itself.
Sexual differentiation is the method which contributes the most to the improvement, feasibility and optimization of the evolution of superior animals since they entail an extremely complex evolutionary system.
The main justification of this statement is that it allows the utilization of the method of Verification of the Transmitted 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 basic concepts of dominant and recessive genes of Mendel's law lose their sense and, anyway, become inappropriate.
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 GTCEL changes its terminology denominating significant gene to those genes which act like a restriction on the expression of its functions related to a certain process.
Vital impulse systems
The research methodology may also be useful for studying complex models, as the so-called vital impulse systems.
