holographic origin of life

... give the exact food, then if these organisms are just random chemical reactions, their lifespan could be predicted as a result of multiple linear regression. The dependent variable y (or else the lifespan) would be: y=a+a1x1+a2x2+…….aνxν+aωxω+ε where ε is the error variable and x1,x2…xν the various ...

If you do that, be sure to go back to the raw data on a graph and make sure the slope makes sense given the graph you see. By the way, using ...
