  2. The biggest take home message I got from watching all those lectures was:


    Life skirts the second law of thermodynamics by the simple fact that it is a dissipative structure, meaning it is an OPEN system that operates out of thermodynamic equilibrium and exchanges energy and matter with its external environment. Dissipative structures rely on dissipative engines aka redox bifurcations that are METASTABLE, meaning they can react at different time scales. Dissipative structures like mitochondria are similar to tornadoes, stars, and galaxies in this way...

    Biochemists who focus on substrates are completely missing the boat when it comes to dissipative structures...

    This is also where current mitochondrial medicine falls short. They are missing the biophysics piece.

    My biggest curiosity going forward is how mitochondrial function outside of mtDNA mutation and heteroplasmy percentage affects neolithic disease phenotypes.

    Mitochondria are semi-autonomous, and self defense is natures oldest law.

    mitochondria's primary role is cell defense, and energy generation is secondary. Naviaux sparked my curiosity because he describes mitochondrial functions that occur before the heteroplasmic threshold is reached. In other words, how are mitochondria responding to nnEMF, flouride, and other mito toxins BEFORE they're heteroplastic to create disease.

    I think this is an interesting area for mitochondrial medicine to explore.
  3. haha he sounds like a mad scientist during some of his lectures

    dude let me know when you get a chance to spend some time with him, I have a couple questions written down!

    "Life skirts the second law of thermodynamics by the simple fact that it is a dissipative structure, meaning it is an OPEN system......."

    The assumption of a closed system has held us back for years.

    I wonder taking Dichloroacetic acid can improve the energy in the cell or redox of body?
