In the same way that self-field theory applies to 'hard' physics on various levels, biological self-field theory (BSFT) applies across the various domains within biology. In analogy to the way planets, solar systems, galaxies, supergalaxies and the universe each have their own balance within an overall scheme of physics, so too proteins, cells, tissues, and living beings have their own balance within an overall scheme of biophysics. It appears that biophysics is an 'interface' phenomenon, and that the priciples of life depend upon cycles of heat and energy that occur most commonly at media interfaces e.g. the atmosphere and surface of planets and oceans. At these boundaries, photons are in flux across the interface and cycles of energy occur as a natural process of the dynamic motions of the planets, atmospheres and oceans. In the same way that electric fields circulate inside and outside metallic conductor surfaces, so too photons circulate at heterogeneous material interfaces. Transmission is accompanied by turbulence of both reflected and transmitted energy. Thus differing mechanisms are in interplay so that a weather system plus ionospheric, subterranian, and submarinal mixings occur. There is fundamentally a chemical stratfication due to the fields themselves having their own eigenstructure (A Predicted Photon Chemistry.pdf 175 kBytes).

As a planetary mass is approached by the photonic streams that form its gravitational fields, photonic changes occur such as the formation of ionspheric layers. Planetary motions and an evolved weather system are intimately involved in the evolution of life. Planetary processes of night and day and the nocturnal rhythms associated with the moon together with photonic changes near its material interfaces provide a basis for life to evolve into the various protein (DNA) sequences that control life upon the earth. Cellestial dynamics including gravity may have played a vital role in the early evolution of DNA upon the earth. As dipolar atoms and molecules fall in a gravitational field they are moving in a magnetic field and they move along a double helical path, the basic shape of DNA. Thus life may be manifest in various forms throughout the universe, provided cycles of heat, energy and photonic fields of an associated range of energies existed in the early formation of 'pre-life' biochemical forms. The photonic chemistry associated with these cycles and the storage of the physical spinors resulting out of the motions of the photons, subatomic and subnuclear particles may have led to the development of biochemical forms that could eventually move autonomously once consiousness had evolved. Energy cycles and photons may have worked together in the early stages of evolution, two physical elements widely available to planets of main sequence stars.

Thus putting all the mechanisms together, the spinors and DNA, photon streams and night and day, etc, BSFT supports the hypothesis that life evolved on earth rather than being initiated by some form of transferrence from outside the earth. It needs to be stressed that the photonic processes discussed above work best when planets are formed rather than in the earlier stages of solar system formation. see also Prebiotic life Evolution Astrobiology Biogenisis. Having said this, it also needs to be stated that there was a random form of photonic chemistry at work during the evolutionary processes. In particular the various fields can undergo sudden dramatic changes in photon mechanics as energy conditions transition aacross an eigenstate. It may be this mechanism that is responsible for the sudden flips in the Sun's magnetic orientation observed reasonably randomly every 11 years or so. The earth is also known to undergo such random magnetic flips on a much more infrequent basis (around 30,000-60,000 years). Such flips may cause biological life forms to suddenly change their chemical abilities and may play an important role in biological evolution.

Both hard and soft physics involve a flow of energy between and among the various levels and this involves forces at each level. The energies and forces control domains of varying size from biomolecular structures, to living beings. The smaller the domain, the stronger the forces and energies. There is an interface between biology and physics within what is termed 'soft' matter. The disctinction between 'hard' and 'soft' is really about the fact that biological systems involve flexible molecules, whereas nonbiological systems in general involve strongly bonded molecules. The distinction occurs somewhere within the liquid phase where hydration plays a major role. In both living and non-living matter, atoms and ions are involved and are chemically no different at the ordinary chemical level; it is only at the level of the atomic fields that differences can be understood. So-called 'biophotons' have a genetic 'memory' that seeks to propagate life with all its evolved advantages.
