• Introduction

    1. Summary of the basic properties of CSPs and HSPs

    2. The notion of quantum criticality

    3. Hagedorn temperature, HHC, and self-organized quantum criticality (SOC)

  • The basic ideas about SPs

    1. Conditions on the heat transfer rates between the systems involved

    2. A new physics model for HHC

    3. Physiological temperature as Hagedorn temperature, local temperature regulation, and self organized quantum criticality

    4. ΔCp>0 for HSP90-nucleotide binding as support for the model

    5. Some functions of SPs in TGD perspective

  • Speculative mechanisms explaining some biological observations

    1. Obesity, failing diets, and SPs

    2. Sleigh dogs which run for days without eating, and starving bacterial colonies
