3.1 Cellular Axioms
Article 53 - Cellular Life and Death
The axioms within the Class of Natural Law of CellularLife are:
1.All Cells have telomeres at the end of chromosomes, which limit the number of times a Cell will replicate.
2.Telomeres are sacrificed each time a Cell replicates and is reborne, with some cells capable of regenerating telomeres through an enzyme called telomerase reverse transcriptase.
3.The goal of all species cell life is the sustainment of the species.
4.The integrity of DNA naturally deteriorates over time after multiple replications and external influences such that a cell that has replicated a significant number of times may have quite degraded DNA compared to a very young cell of the same species.
5.Deterioration and errors in DNA can lead to the inheritance of genetic defects leading to hereditary disease and possible extinction of a species or line of the species. Yet acquired immune response to a threat is vital information to be passed to the next generation of the species.
6.The optimum balance of most multi-cellular species is to replace and procreate earlier in the life cycle, to optimize the integrity and quality of DNA, while still providing potentially new information on immune response.
7.Species cells therefore program themselves to die for the The Cell in theory, given normal conditions could sustain itself through significant generations if
The axioms within the Class of Natural Law of Cellular Death are:
1.The telomeres at the end of chromosomes controls the number of times that a certain cell will replicate.
2.When the telomeres reach a certain minimum level, most species cells will not replicate again.
3.Species cells therefore program themselves to die for the benefit of the species.
4.If a species did not program cells to die, then a species may procreate after extended periods, passing badly deteriorated DNA leading to significant potential genetic defects, leading to the possible extinction of the species within a few generations.
