My informal application to the $1.35 million prize of the
The Origin-of-Life Foundation http://www.us.net/life/ :

In order to resolve the mystery of life, it is necessary
to go back to the time before materialistic reductionism
(Descartes, Bacon, Galilei) edged out panpsychism (Cusanus,
Kepler).

Unfortunately materialistic reductionism is nowadays
confused with science itself and the explanation of
life within 'science' has become impossible.

I have resolved the mystery of the origin of life in a
very simple and elegant way based on panpsychism.

To try to publish a paper based on panpsychism "in a
well-respected, peer-reviewed science journal" is as
problematic as to publish a scientific refutation of
a basic premise of catholicism in a well-respected
publication organ of the Vatican.

Here the abstract of my theory:

  "ABSTRACT: The psychon theory is a panpsychist evolution
  theory based on a continuity from elementary particles to
  human souls. Elementary particles are like very primitive
  and basic organisms and we all (our souls) were elementary
  particles billions of years ago. During evolution our
  psychons (souls) have been responsible for the behaviour
  of atoms, molecules, enzymes, living cells, primitive
  neurons, primitive animals, ... , monkeys and of our
  ancestors.

  The psychon theory has very concrete consequences, for
  instance there must be a limit to the number of human souls,
  which according to the latest demographic data could be
  even less than 7 billion."

A further extract ("Psychons and their Evolution"):

  "The maturation of a protein from the corresponding chain
  of amino acids can happen in the following way:
  <In important (evolutionarily older) sequences of the chain,
  amino acids become active, that is they are animated by
  psychons. Because of environment continuity these psychons
  are the ones which have built up the same protein (or the
  same sequence of different proteins) innumerable times.
  These psychons build up protein parts which can be animated
  as a whole by other psychons which then build up the
  complete protein.>
  So it also becomes comprehensible that RNA sequences
  (introns) are able to cut out themselves or that order is
  maintained during DNA recombination.

  During evolution, psychon animated molecules have been
  joining together in always bigger units. Animated molecules
  such as amino acids and nucleotides began sometime to form
  chains. By specialization psychons emerged which dominated
  such chains. Proteins are conceivable which replicate by
  adding corresponding amino acids to one chain end, until an
  identical protein can split off. Reproduction by base
  pairing of two complementary strands is even more efficient.
  The invention of translation, a complex symbiosis of various
  ribosomal psychons, was certainly one of the most essential
  steps during the evolution of life."

I have not only successfully defended the theory on the
discussion forum talk.origins, but also efficiently
pointed out (more or less well-known) inconsistencies
of the currently prevailing neo-Darwinism.

  "According to the psychon theory, enzymes are like primitive
  animals. At least proteins and RNA enzymes should have
  evolved  at first indepentently. Self replicating proteins
  learned sometime to use short RNA templates in order to
  accelerate the production of new proteins. This technique
  was continuously improved not only by pure chance but also
  by final laws of nature.

  The emergence of the genetic code can be compared with
  the emergence of human languages, and the emergence of
  the highly complex living cell with the emergence of modern
  cities. All species and evolutionary innovations were
  designed in a similar way houses, cars or ships have been
  designed. But at the same time they have evolved by chance
  in a similar way houses, cars and ships have evolved.

  If it is true that living cells using the modern genetic
  code appeared very early on the earth, then it is highly
  improbable that this very complex code evolved the first
  time on earth. Such an information transfer from 'cosmic
  ancestors' to the earth is possible, because an essential
  part of the information of living systems is stored in the
  immaterial psychons.

  We cannot reproduce the behaviour of enzymes of the early
  earth because their behaviour depends on psychons which have
  further evolved. So amino acid sequences which would have
  folded millions or billions of years ago, today do not fold
  any more. In the same way, sequences which fold today did
  not fold on the early earth."

I'm quite confident not to win the prize, nevertheless,
from a purely scientific point of view, I would merit
at least a substantial part of it.
