And...the Question is???Are You tryin to make a point?Looks more like a thesis.👍I donno wat to make out of all your words.🤔Can anyone Help?
🙄Hmmmm!Now i get it...Gee Thanx!😊Have You ever in your life seen a sliced broken into two halves motherboard computer boot up?Ever heard music from half a piece of a broken record or dvd?Ever watched a blockbuster movie on a half split monitor?Ps - The Brain ain't hardware or software... it's Different.🧠(Neuroplasticity)
However, their storage media does not have the same type of fidelity,
Water defines the 3-D packing and shapes of the organic materials. It scaffolds the hardware in specific ways needed for their activity.

But that doesn't stop you posting as if it was actually science, rather than something you made up.But here's a thought for you.The purpose of the bird's excellent eyesight is to allow it to spot a rabbit at 1000 feet (or whatever).It does that by comparing the image it sees to the recollection of "what a distant rabbit looks like".If the recollection wasn't equally high resolution, the rabbit would be "lost" in the quantisation or noise.So it seems to me that your pontification is wrong.Quote from: puppypower on 19/09/2021 17:15:30Water defines the 3-D packing and shapes of the organic materials.

The hawk has clarity, but less fidelity
allow the surface water to go beyond itself

In pure water, water molecules will hydrogen bond with each other and can form extended 3-D structures.
The input device of the hawk; eyes, have a high level of clarity. However, as these optical signals impinge upon its memory for processing, the processing has less fidelity, allowing his actions to be more targeted, without distraction by too much detail. He will not get bogged down in the details of the rabbits fur, even if his eyes can see this, since this level of processing fidelity is not needed for his instinctive goal; catch a rabbit.Picture if the hawk was conscious of more detail. The first time he catches a rabbit, it has black and white spots. With too much fidelity in memory and processing he may need to hunt, only rabbits with black and white spots. This would not be very efficient.On the other hand, with less conscious fidelity, that much detail is irrelevant, allowing him to catch any rabbit. The hawk can see this detail with his eyes, but this is not processed as relevant; less fidelity in his instinctive data processing is better. Humans are more quirky due to more fidelity, that so tiny details seem more relevant.
In pure water, water molecules will hydrogen bond with each other and can form extended 3-D structures. Water can form four hydrogen bonds with other water, and in some ways can do with secondary bonding, what carbon does with primary bonding. Both can form four bonds. However, in pure water there is a limit to the size and duration for such extended 3-D water structures, due to changes in the hydrogen bonding switches from polar to covalent and vice versa; pH affect, etc. Water is more fluid than carbon based molecules.If we look at an enzyme, the final surface of an enzyme is what is left after the rest of the enzyme has been packed properly, to minimize the bulk/local water's excess free energy. Larger scale 3-D water configurations can from on these final enzyme surfaces.Keeping the enzyme packed is important to the water's free energy needs. The surface layer of water, on the enzyme's surface, is firmly rooted in the larger picture of things; bulk water stability. This foundation of necessity, is a platform for water to form extended structuring to further stabilize the bigger picture; cooperatives. These structures are more stable and durable than the similar things in pure water, since these water structures, beyond the enzymes, serves a free energy purpose. Enzymes, in turn, can share this free energy if they try to unpack such as via a boost from ATP. In terms of natural selection at the nanoscale, not all randomly made protein polymers can be packed to the stability of enzymes. If we started with a random generation of protein, using very poor template processes, enzymes would stand out as stabilizing to the water. Eventually the active enzymes take over the area, since they are better for the needs of water and can help the water clean out the trash. Better template processes would also benefit the water; less high free energy residuals. Water was the continuous phase from the beginning and selected things that benefit itself. The result is nothing in life can work without water.Other solvents would select other options since their free energy needs are different. Alcohols would not choose DNA and RNA. They would need a different template design. These do not work properly in alcohols. They are fine in water.
llow the surface water to go beyond itself
Offtopic - Perhaps if We ever find Aliens for whom Water is Toxic...Then, We could focus more on the Liquid State of Matter vs Water as an Elixir for Life.PS - have funn!👍
The solid state can exhibit pressure and/or tension but not both at the same time and reach steady state.
To clarify for Bored Chemist, when I said water can go beyond itself,
The pH affect shows hydrogen able to go from being covalently bonding to oxygen, to being detached as an independent ion, and all in between.
This affects allows water to make strong bonding more plastic; catalysis.
