In Search of Quantum Information Biology
Author(s) Elsheikh M E
Abstract

Life is neither reducible to ordinary physics nor it is independent of physics. Life is subject to a new discovered fundamental physical property that distinguishes life from nonlife. Thus life (genome) is a quantum information fractal field (QIFF) which generates, in addition to electromagnetic vibrations, self-sustained bio-information oscillations through successive generations. Bio-information is a measure of developmental functional complexity, has the dimensions of energy and information. The bio-information oscillations are represented by a generalized Schrodinger type of system that is nonlinear, non-conservative and irreversible, i.e., periodic functional bio-information attractor, also called the life-organizing principle. The life-organizing principle is a minor attractor when describing cellular dynamics and a major attractor when describing multi-cellular organism dynamics. A cell type is an example of a minor attractor which belongs to a basin of a major attractor. Ontogeny and phylogeny are processes that generate and organize minor attractors into a nested hierarchy of cell, tissue, organ, organ-system and organism. In consequence a QIFF is a nested hierarchy of bio-information attractors toward which a bio-system develops or evolves. The QIFF equations admit limiting transition to linear reversible quantum mechanics.
