The Origin of Life – chemical selection and the heat cycle

May 22, 2018

Here are some ideas on the origin of life and first reproduction.
The suggestion is that the day and night heat cycle was the force that produced chemical selection that led to life.

First Reproduction

Suggestion that some how the heat cycle of day/sun/UV then night and cooler temperatures on Earth, generated bases and protocells.

Suggestion that the heat cycle also generated more accurate base pairings, and longer linked bases.

Suggestion that protocells somehow began partially opening and later closing as a reaction to the daily heat cycle such that the most stable protocells in that environment survived.

Suggestion that somehow the heat cycle annealed and denatured bases such that the most stable base connections in that environment, survived.

Suggestion that protocells that opened and closed somehow contained bases, and that bases within the protocells were more stable than bases not in the protocells.

Suggestion that none of this was a single chemical fluke event in which a one time chemical reaction survived, unprotected and in a hostile environment.

Stable here would mean two things.
1. continue to exist in that environment.
2. allow to change to more stable versions in that environment.

This rough scenario gets rid of all fluke events, and replaces them with systematic chemical selection over millions of years.

When cell reproduction is set up, the division of a cell into two parts allows not only a daughter cell to come into existence, but it allows the father cell to grow in size until it reaches the maximum size for a cell and must divide again to continue to exist.
