Our practical Life is quite easily and simply
“divisibly -conceived, -planned and -implemented”.
Our Holistic-Framing & Timeframing
become easily “dichotomisable” into

My Mind-Functional Needs & Hows.

The ‘fact’ that

As long ago as 1967**
the following was the Level and State of
VIRUSES ‘Virology’ Knowledge alone
(in Indiana State University, USA.)
“To summarise the bio-chemistry of the parasitism of a cell by a virus,
one should divide the process into several stages:
The virus attaches to the host
by specific bonding of low energy, typically ionic.
The virus or its nucleic acid is introduced into the cell by
any of several mechanisms depending on the type of virus and cell.
If the virus has been taken intact, it becomes uncoated.
Viral DNA is, or becomes, two-stranded.
It is transcribed into messenger RNA’s.Viral RNA actgs directly.
These messengers institute the synthesis of proteins
which drange the normal cellular nucleic acid metabolism
and direct it toward the replication of viral nucleic acid.
DNA replcates by the Watson-Crick scheme.
RNA replicates by an unknown mechanism.
Meanwhile other messages
cause the formation of viral structural components.
The viral particles are assembled by largely unknown mechanisms.
They are released by any of a variety of processes such as cell lysis or budding.”
It is to be hoped that the above ‘instantiations’ may serve to
