God Language and the Problem of “the Greater to the Lesser”

Our beloved and unfathomably-wise Maker displays the beauty of his Majesty throughout all the creation, including the brilliance of the night sky in the country.   Anyone who owns a pick-up truck with a tailgate knows this.  The wisdom of this light of nature shows up with humans in a very special way — the use of language.   But strangely, just this also often exhibits our folly.  Clearly, this is unfitting.  Our wisdom is a source of our folly.  The sophisticated use of our languages — even technical ones like computer languages — shows off our intelligence, while our sometimes belligerent, threating, cursing, or otherwise mischievous  abuse of such languages showcases our (ahem) “Monday-morning commute skills,” complete with higher-than-average insurance rates.

In a way, the universe focuses on language.  It is highly unique, powerful, capable of great wisdom, or great damage.  It can move the world, and by some, can make a pen mightier than a sword. Here is my startling suggestion, then, about language, in propositional format:

  1. God is greater than all than all things in so many ways, one can scarcely begin to count them.
  2. If language (the way it naturally orients toward God) about God turns out to be abusive (even accidentally through carelessness), then it will in all the rest of its features wax abusive.
  3. This follows from the greater to the lesser.
  4. Conclusion: if our language gets it wrong in speaking of the divine, it is wrong-headed in all places, from this (the top), all the way down to its least descriptors, syntax rules, grammar, time-references, etc.

And now for the sorry report I must offer:  Every human language, including the very best Greek, waxes very abusive in both what it does, and supremely, in what it does not, say about God.  Even the title, “God” is wrong.  This means human language, through folly and recklessness, has been the source of extraordinary problems since the dawn of history, and continues so to be until this day.

How do we fix the problem?  Carefully, systematically, and philosophically, analyze and report carefully on what we ought to say, and ought to avoid saying about God.  In principle, to restore and create proper God-language to the human race, for the very first time, is to win at all.  This must take up our first priority among Sophic Creationists at the World Peace Conference.

Already I have identified such problems as empty reference (alpha-privatives, etc), infinitives, verbs of being, conceptual muddlings and the like.  We must remove these from our God-language, carefully establish their discreet counterparts (with all due reverence, wisdom and love), and publish a philosophical dictionary of “the Creator: His Wisdom and Most Excellent Virtues.”    This brief, Hellenistic Greek dictionary begins the source from which we should create our “Rehearsed Speech Unit” cards.

Consider this: Since God has never spoken anything like what we find in the Bible, all the Bible represents the lengthiest and most abusive language text ever written. In its own metaphoric symbology, this would make the Great Lie that God sends them that they should be taken of the Great Delusion.   Most ironically, it is fairly a great delusion.

Contrariwise, the philosophical-analytical dictionary of God-language promoted just above begins the repair of human language, and thus of the human race, and of all things over which the Creator has set us.  What are we that He has been mindful of us? and yet He has crowned us with many high privileges.

Greek, “Humanity,” and the Central Language Problem Of Our Self-Concept

The Greek word for “Human,” “Humanity,” “Humane,” and other similar words, derive from the word “Anthropos,” where we get the word “anthropology.”   The reasons I have brought this point to your attention amount to a very important refutation of our current (collective) self-concept.

Our collective self-concept, how we see ourselves, remains extremely important for at least two reasons:

It determines our destiny (future prospects and welfare) as we conform ourselves to it progressively over time; and, our beloved and most-wise Creator, uses our estimate of ourselves as a starting point in judging us reflexively (as just judgment requires).

Because the Most High King begins with our own self-concept in assessing our condition, what we say of ourselves (and one another) must be accurate, but it must also be charitable, and carefully avoid sweeping condemnations or harsh judgments.  I believe this makes “Calvinism” in particular, and Christianity more generally, with its doctrine of “total depravity,” or the “fallenness” of all mankind, especially dangerous to our better welfare.

This blog post then would lobby for new ways to speak of ourselves, instead of the more traditional Greek words.  “AN- thropos” seems to pair up the alpha-privative (A-, or -AN, meaning “NOT”) with “thropos,” probably a contraction (shortened version) of “thaerion” (Animal, or beast, here refered to as either a ground-dweller or underground dweller).  Remember, in a civilization where things often revert to their opposites — following our linguistic abuses of antonyms paired with their antagonistic counterparts (hot v. cold, fast v. slow, etc) — this misnomer would tend to lead us into the ground (six feet under, even) over time.

The word Anthropos essentially means “not from the ground” (dwellers?).  Instead, the Latin version of “extremely wise” one (Homo Sapiens Sapiens) aims much closer to what we ought to use for ourselves, with great confidence in the unfathomable kindness and wisdom of our Creator.  The Greek for this would read something like “Hupersunesoi,” those of great understanding.

Likewise, we will need to reshape our labels for other aspects of our world central to our self-concept and destiny.  One lie, the “atom,” (meaning “indivisible” particle) should bear the designation, “Stoichon,” a Greek short-version of “the elemental particle,” the one which makes up the table of elements.  Likewise, our smallest quantum, the Higgs-Boson, we should name the “Prostoichon,” meaning the atom for the atom, or the Atom squared — the “pre-elemental particle” (foundation) for the elemental particle.

We should likewise consider the labels used for other VIP persons and aspects of our culture and its future.   Please ponder these things.

Rebuilding Math Again

I have recently encountered something in my researches I never expected — the number series:

2, 4, 5, 6, 8, which I now regard as the mathematical transcendental.  In brief, what I mean is that I here supply something important left unattended by Kant’s studies.  What happened to the odd numbers?  The very same thing that happened to the non-positivies (zero and the negative number line) earlier.  Why the odd numbers deleted, and why the lone exception of 5?

  1. Every one of the prime numbers (irreducibles) displays an odd, never an even, numeral.
  2. Even numbers can easily derive odds (10  divided by 2 = 5), but the reverse does not always follow (5 divided by 2 = 2.5, not an even (whole) number.  Odd numbers often divide their products into fractions and other strange numbers — hence “Odd” numbers.  These may often (not always) yield REAL numbers, but they do not yield NATURAL numbers.
  3.  DNA provides the divine pattern of life, and it uses 2, 4, 6, 8 — Our beloved and unfathomably wise Creator prefers even numbers.  5 remains the lone exception at your fingertips (and toes).
  4. I have added 5 as a key natural (as in light of nature) because of the obviously handy character of it — environmental control requires it. Necessity reigns here.
  5. It is the very oddness of odd numbers that renders them other than UNIFORM, NECCESSARY and practical (i.e. other than prudent).  22/ 7 yields an imaginary number that must be rounded to make it practical.

Further studies on these points will challenge the notions of eternity and infinity, since the “mythical highest number” does not exist, so far as I can tell, and probably cannot exist.  Strangely, the circle, a geometric shape, either having zero sides, or else an infinite number, might provide a counterinstance to the claim that the infinite necessarily exceeds our cognitive grasp.

Conclusion: we should follow the natural numbers, rounding (by rules) when necessary, following the divine pattern of all life — it is divine in its origin, and was given immediately by God at its creation-event. Given advances in information theory and what we know of both DNA and numbers, it is possible to begin a wisdom tradition (written) with DIVINE information from the sciences of life — not some arbitrary and contradictory “Qur’an” for westerners beginning with Genesis (rather than our “Genetics”).

The quantity transcendental bears great import for my reconstructing of the Greek language (Which progress continues, and I have many a blog-post ready to print by way of updating everyone on its advances.   Note: DNA has 64 letters, and the language I am working on should be understood in terms of (Sculpted by) the quantity transcendental.   This is a game-changer.  The natural numbers of DNA (and 5) [Light-of-nature math] forms the new basis for further advances here. It may be that the only words we are to use are ones that employ the # of syllables indicated by a DNA natural #.

I continue to regard the Geometric shapes as our proper numerals, not the Arabic numerals. This, natural math, remains both the math of life, and of wisdom.  It is why we are vegans and vegetarians.  We add differently already, COUNTING animals as persons of value to our most excellent and unfathomably wise King.

Computers emnegatploy (at present) all zeros and ones, while we regard neither of these.  This implies new computer technology rooted in the light of nature.  Stay tuned for later posts on this topic — I.e. “Dolphin Technology Systems?”

P.S. My nearly scientific postscript for today is that using the DNA naturals (rounded when needed) will average out over time (that is, stochastically) in terms of economic management of monetary value – currency and coins.

PPS.  Sociocultural reflections happen.  I have come to believe that the zero and negatives arose from just such a prior mathematical abuse, as what they reflect.  If true, its “socio-cultural” cause would have to display a set of numbers as extensive as the non-pos. #’s.  The positive-odd number set fits the bill neatly.  This would mean that the rejection of the exclusive use of the naturals implies the denial of the exclusive use of the reals.  From (UN) natural to (UN) real, describes the abusive-math trajectory I have in mind.

This means the set of negative numbers  did not arise in a cultural vacuum, but as a response over time to a like quantity abuse with a set of numbers just as extensive.

And another thing … [Ideal] DNA does not subtract.  With Ideal DNA, All cell losses are replaced and edited according to the blueprint. Here, DNA math divides, multiplies and adds.  In other words, its math only moves forward, not backward.  Written out, it is linear and progressive (Growth-oriented).   It would render negative numbers not merely unreal, but (after a fashion) doubly-unnatural.  We must ponder these things.

The Mathematics of DNA

Imagine that someone gives you a mystery novel with an entire page ripped out.page_ripped_out2

And let’s suppose someone else comes up with a computer program that reconstructs the missing page, by assembling sentences and paragraphs lifted from other places in the book.

Imagine that this computer program does such a beautiful job that most people can’t tell the page was ever missing.

DNA does that.

In the 1940’s, the eminent scientist Barbara McClintock damaged parts of the DNA in corn maize. To her amazement,

the plants could reconstruct the damaged section. They did so by copying other parts of the DNA strand, then pasting them into the damaged area.

This discovery was so radical at the time, hardly anyone believed her reports. (40 years later she won the Nobel Prize for this work.)

And we still wonder: How does a tiny cell possibly know how to do…. that???

A French HIV researcher and computer scientist has now found part of the answer. Hint: The instructions in DNA are not only linguistic, they’re beautifully mathematical. There is an Evolutionary Matrix that governs the structure of DNA.

Computers use something called a “checksum” to detect data errors. It turns out DNA uses checksums too. But DNA’s checksum is not only able to detect missing data; sometimes it can even calculate what’s missing. Here’s how it works.

In English, the letter E appears 12.7% of the time. The letter Z appears 0.7% of the time. The other letters fall somewhere in between. So it’s possible to detect data errors in English just by counting letters.

In DNA, some letters also appear a lot more often (like E in English) and some much less often. But… unlike English, how often each letters appears in DNA is controlled by an exact mathematical formula that is hidden within the genetic code table.

When cells replicate, they count the total number of letters in the DNA strand of the daughter cell. If the letter counts don’t match certain exact ratios, the cell knows that an error has been made. So it abandons the operation and kills the new cell.

Failure of this checksum mechanism causes birth defects and cancer.

Dr. Jean-Claude Perez started counting letters in DNA. He discovered that these ratios are highly mathematical and based on “Phi”, the Golden Ratio 1.618. This is a very special number, sort of like Pi. Perez’ discovery was published in the scientific journal Interdisciplinary Sciences / Computational Life Sciences in September 2010.

Jean-Claude Perez discovered an evolutionary mathematical matrix in DNA, based on the Golden Ratio 1.618

Jean-Claude Perez discovered an evolutionary mathematical matrix in DNA, based on the Golden Ratio 1.618

Before I tell you about it, allow me to explain just a little bit about the genetic code.

DNA has four symbols, T, C, A and G. These symbols are grouped into letters made from combinations of 3 symbols, called triplets.  There are 4x4x4=64 possible combinations.

So the genetic alphabet has 64 letters. The 64 letters are used to write the instructions that make amino acids and proteins.

Perez somehow figured out that if he arranged the letters in DNA according to a T-C-A-G table, an interesting pattern appeared when he counted the letters.

He divided the table in half as you see below. He took single stranded DNA of the human genome, which has 1 billion triplets. He counted the population of each triplet in the DNA and put the total in each slot:

tcag_symmetry1
When he added up the letters, the ratio of total white letters to black letters was 1:1. And this turned out to not just be roughly true. It was exactly true, to better than one part in one thousand, i.e. 1.000:1.000.

Then Perez divided the table this way:

tcag_symmetry2
Perez discovered that the ratio of white letters to black letters is exactly 0.690983, which is (3-Phi)/2. Phi is the number 1.618, the “Golden Ratio.”

He also discovered the exact same ratio, 0.690983, when he divided the table the following two alternative ways:

tcag_symmetry3
tcag_symmetry4
Again, the total number of white letters divided by the total number of black letters is 0.6909, to a precision of better than one part in 1,000.

Perez discovered two more symmetries:

tcag_symmetry5Above: Total ratio of white:black letters = 1:1
tcag_symmetry6Again, total ratio of white:black letters = 1:1

So for three ways of dividing the table, the ratio of white to black is 1.000:1.000.

And for the other three ways of dividing it, the ratio is 0.690983 or (3-Phi)/2.

When you overlay these 6 symmetries on top of each other, you get a set of mathematical stairs with 32 golden steps. Then an absolutely fascinating geometrical pattern emerges: The “Dragon Curve” which is well known in fractal geometry. Here it is, labeled with DNA letters in descending frequency:

dragoncurve

300px-dragon_curve_animation

Animated Dragon Curve

You can see other non-DNA, computer generated versions of this same curve here.

Other interesting facts:

  • Similar patterns with variations on these same rules are seen across a range of 20 different species. From the AIDS virus to bacteria, primates and humans
  • Each character in DNA occurs a precise number of times, and each has a twin. TTT and AAA are twins and appear the most often; they’re the DNA equivalent of the letter E.
  • This pattern creates a stair step of 32 frequencies, a specific frequency for each pair.
  • The number of triplets that begin with a T is precisely the same as the number of triplets that begin with A (to within 0.1%).
  • The number of triplets that begin with a C is precisely the same as the number of triplets that begin with G.
  • The genetic code table is fractal – the same pattern repeats itself at every level. The micro scale controls conversion of triplets to amino acids, and it’s in every biology book. The macro scale, newly discovered by Dr. Perez, checks the integrity of the entire organism.
  • Perez is also discovering additional patterns within the pattern.

I am only giving you the tip of the iceberg. There are other rules and layers of detail that I’m omitting for simplicity. Perez presses forward with his research; more papers are in the works, and if you’re able to read French, I recommend his book “Codex Biogenesis” and his French website. Here is an English translation.

(By the way, he found some of his most interesting data in what used to be called “Junk DNA.” It turns out to not be junk at all.)

OK, so what does all this mean?

  • Copying errors cannot be the source of evolutionary progress, because if that were true, eventually all the letters would be equally probable.
  • This proves that useful evolutionary mutations are not random. Instead, they are controlled by a precise Evolutionary Matrix to within 0.1%
  • When organisms exchange DNA with each other through Horizontal Gene Transfer, the end result still obeys specific mathematical patterns
  • DNA is able to re-create destroyed data by computing checksums in reverse – like calculating the missing contents of a page ripped out of a novel.

No man-made language has this kind of precise mathematical structure. DNA is a tightly woven, highly efficient language that follows extremely specific rules. Its alphabet, grammar and overall structure are ordered by a beautiful set of mathematical functions.

More interesting factoids:

The most common pair of letters (TTT and AAA) appears exactly 1/13X as often as all the letters combined – consistently, the genomes of humans and chimpanzees.

If you put the 32 most common triplets in Group 1 and the 32 least common triplets in Group 2, the ratio of letters in Group1:Group2 is exactly 2:1. And since triplet counts occur in symmetrical pairs (TTT-AAA, TAT-ATA, etc), you can group them into four groups of 16.

When you put those four triplet populations on a graph, you get the peace symbol:

dna_peace_symbol

Does this precise set of rules and symmetries appear random or accidental to you?

My friend, this is how it is possible for DNA to be a code that is self-repairing, self-correcting, self-re-writing and self-evolving. It reveals a level of engineering and sophistication that human engineers could only dream of. Most of all, it’s elegant.

Cancer has sometimes been described as “evolution run amok.” Dr. Perez has noted interesting distortions of this matrix in cancer cells. I strongly suspect that new breakthroughs in cancer research are hidden in this matrix.

I submit to you that the most productive research that can possibly be conducted in medicine and computer science is intensive study of the DNA Evolution Matrix. Like I said, this is just the tip of the iceberg.

There is so much more here to discover!

When we develop computer languages based on DNA language, they will be capable of extreme data compression, error correction, and yes, self-evolution. Imagine: Computer programs that add features and improve with time. All by themselves.

What would that be like?

    Perry,
    I enjoy your site. I do however have a problem with some of the math–
    “Perez discovered that the ratio of white letters to black letters is exactly 0.690983, which is (3-Phi)/2. Phi is the number 1.618, the “Golden Ratio.”
    He also discovered the exact same ratio, 0.690983, when he divided the table the following two alternative ways:”
    Right below this is a table 1st letter T –White, next first letter C is black, next first letter A is white, next first G is Black
    White / Black = Sum T+ Sum A / Sum C + Sum G =0.690983
    Later in another matrix it is stated “There are two more symmetries that Perez discovered: and that matrix has the White/Black reversed
    Sum C + Sum G /Sum T+ Sum A = 1 to 1
    Simplifying T+A / C +G = 0.690983 and C+G / T+A =1 I don’t believe math works that way unless you are changing the inputs and not calling them out.
    or am I missing something here?

    • The 2nd matrix does not reverse the black/white, there are a total of 6 distinct matrices, 3 are 1:1 and 3 are 0.69. Perez’s paper makes this clear. If I’ve made an error in representing Perez’s paper I’m open to having that pointed out.

    Very interesting article, but being biologically educated, I have a few comments.

    Junk DNA has long been believed to have some sort of function, we are just unsure of what that function is (most likely regulatory). The term “junk” has just stuck around from an older time.

    “Copying errors cannot be the source of evolutionary progress, because if that were true, eventually all the letters would be equally probable. This proves that useful evolutionary mutations are not random. Instead, they are controlled by a precise Evolutionary Matrix to within 0.1%”

    Considering there are about 3 billion base pairs in the human genome, that would still allow for some 3 million bases to not be controlled by this matrix, essentially offering counter evidence for your first example. That’s a lost of potential random mutations. Please correct me if I interpreted this data incorrectly.

    I haven’t had a chance to read it yet, but I’m wondering if his paper mentioned if he factored the highly variable and repeating telomeres into his matrices?

    Thank you for your input!

    • If the Evolution Matrix controls codon populations to 0.1% then that means that copying errors cannot account for more than 0.1% of the difference between, say, bacteria and humans. It means that 99.9% comes from processes that obey the rules of the matrix.

      I’m sure there is some teeny tiny percentage of random mutations that have turned out to be beneficial. But then saying that random mutations are therefore the source of evolutionary progress is a complete non-sequitur. It’s sort of like a story I remember hearing somewhere, where a guy had some kind of physical problem and he was struck by lightning and it went away. It could be true, and freak accidents do happen, but nobody I know is volunteering to get struck by lightning. Science is not about freak accidents, it’s about systematic explanations.

      Evolution is driven by transposition, horizontal gene transfer, epigenetics, symbiogenesis and genome doubling. All of those things are very well documented, all are systematic processes, and they obey the rules of the matrix. Random Mutation doesn’t obey the matrix and is dead last in the lineup of beneficial evolutionary mechanisms.

      I’m not sure about your last question. I’ll forward it to Dr. Perez.

      BTW The term “junk DNA” needs to be discarded. As does other derisive terms like “degenerate code” which is a misnomer for a brilliant error minimization scheme.

      (Or maybe we need to keep the term ‘junk DNA’ around as a reminder of how much damage atheism has done to the study of biology and the practice of science.)

  4. tetrahedral says:

    Languages may be as precisely tuned re the Golden Ratio as DNA. There is a doctoral student at UArizona doing his thesis on Phi in phrase and clause structure. Others have shown strong typological relations between prosody type and syllable type, between numbers of features in phonemes and total average sentence length, etc. And language types tend to be highly coherent, re word order and other factors between heads and dependents. It just hasn’t been looked at through the window of fractals, the Golden Ratio, etc. Since languages change these things cyclically, and pack/unpack the individual feature bundles into new configurations, linguists specializing in one aspect or another can’t help but fail to see the larger picture.

    There are also many strong parallel analogical relations between linguistic and genomic structure. Languages can separate basic meaning bearing units, adjoin them, or overlap them. Same thing happens with genomes, in terms of protein coding sequences. Meaning bearing units can bootstrap their forms from their underlying sequence (sound symbolism) or get them imposed from above. Generally the relative importance of these two extrema depends on how elaborated morphosyntax is, or how often used. There is evidence of the same thing in the genome.

    Finally, re ‘junk’, it has been shown that in eukaryotic organisms the more junk, generally, the more environmental context sensitivity is present for determining the right time to become sexually mature- they wait for optimal conditions. They also tend to have larger, less complex cells, less internally ramified or externally connected. or overlapping organs. Those with reduced junk tend to have smaller more specialized cells, often mixed in organs (sometimes from separate origins). They ignore the resource environment and are instead ‘on the clock’ for maturation, so that the process is more or less in synch with the seasons, the day/night cycle, etc.- automated. Also earlier life stages tend to be de-emphasized or reduced. Thus metamorphoses- in plants and animals.

    Junk cumulates either by wholesale duplications or from inputs from outside the organism (viruses). And it can be lost as well. Constant updating. Old viruses get defanged by breaking up genes into fragments, etc. And there is exchange between the junk and the split gene system.

    Same thing happens in languages. But I’ll leave off here unless there is more interest.

    As for Phi in nature, in the past year I discovered a link between the Periodic Table and Pascal’s Triangle, and Fibonacci and related sequences. Just for one example if one divides Fib numbers into triplets (two odds, one even- that is, an even number of odds vs. an odd number of evens), and maps them AS atomic numbers in the periodic system, then within known elements ALL the odd Fib numbers map to leftmost positions in the table where there is one electron in one new orbital lobe: s1,p1,d1,f1. But orbitals are split in two, the left/first half with singlet electrons in lobes, and the second/right half with two per lobe. Within the known elements ALL the EVEN Fib numbers map to the leftmost positions in the second half of the orbital, where the first doublet electron is in one lobe.

    The related Lucas number map instead to RIGHTMOST positions within the orbitals, with half or completely filled status- where there are exceptions, the electron configurations or the behaviors of the elements themselves are altered to better fit the Lucas trend (ex. 29Cu and 47Ag steal an electron from a filled s to donate it internally to make a full d. Half s is just as ‘Lucas’ a thus also as an “Eternal Food” for all truth-seeking brains, souls and minds (John 6/27-40)

    Perry do you even have an idea of what Barbara McClintock discovered? Look up class II Transposons read about them what the do and how they work. See Genes IX page 538.

  6. helixbender says:

    I not sure I get what you mean when you try to explain McClintock’s experiments. It doesn’t match what I’ve seen in the literature about class II transposons. I’ve never seen a paper talking about fixing the ‘damaged’ gene using ‘other parts of the DNA strand’. Could you give me the reference for this?

  7. MikeFromOhio says:

    I believe Perry is correct when he says that mutations are not strictly random and can involve Transposition, Epigenetics etc.

    However evolution happens at many levels. It’s possible that the genome matrix has evolved in a coupled manner to the cells that it represents. This is typically referred to as “the evolution of evolvability”.

    As I said elsewhere, we need to work out a prototype with Genetic Programming and *try* to evolve a simple design/code and see what happens. Doing such an experiment might add weight to Perry’s argument, or it might prove otherwise. Either way we would learn more.

    In other words, saying that evolution is mutation/random based and that its not very powerful, is like saying that a car with 1.5 wheels won’t get you very far so why believe in cars.

    Evolution = Variation In Population + Phenotype Selection + Time
    Evolution Random Mutation

    Local fractional functional analysis, gradually conquering one stronghold after another, may become a nearly new universal mathematical doctrine, not merely a new area of mathematics, but a new mathematical world view. Its appearance was the inevitable consequence of the evolution of all of twenty-once-century mathematics, in particular analysis and mathematical physics in fractional-dimension spaces. Its original basis is formed by theory of sets from Cantor sets to fractional sets. Its existence will answer the question of how to state general principles of a broadly interpreting fractal mathematics and fractal engineering.

    Local fractional calculus (LFC) deals with everywhere continuous but nowhere differentiable functions in fractal space. In this letter we point out local fractional Fourier analysis in generalized Hilbert space. We first investigate the local fractional calculus and complex number of fractional-order based on the complex Mittag-Leffler function in fractal space. Then we study the local fractional Fourier analysis from the theory of local fractional functional analysis point of view. We finally propose the fractional-order trigonometric and complex Mittag-Leffler functions expressions of local fractional Fourier series.

    You need to obtain the orginal paper, and find these results. I look forword to hearing from you, and thank you very much.

    Xiao-Jun Yang,

    your post writes about some kinds of higher mathematics – a closed book to me, so I fear the original paper would be even less comprehensible! But thanks anyhow. OGT

  16. […] write up on the golden ratio. I understand that he helped translated the work into English. Same? The Mathematics of DNA. […]

    “Premise #2 – All codes we know the origin of, that are capable of storing and retrieving pictures of aunt Harriet, a couple of your favorite novels, and back up your computer data, come from a mind!”

    That brings the concept home!

    Hey Perry, are you going to do a write-up on being able to code and store a biology book in DNA?

    God Chaser,
    no problem: there are many forms of ‘code’, not just mathematical. Broadly, which one is used depends on the kind of info to be best transmitted. Eg., a movie reel contains graphics as code. In principle, the moving images might be translated into scrolling formulae, but it would not be a rewarding viewing experience! And not all codes are interchangeable. Musical notation cannot become language text, & only skilled musicians can ‘decode’ a composition to unlock the audio ‘message’. AFAIK, we are not sure how many code-modes there are, so we cannot talk about transformations ‘in principle’. Some codes might not translate into others at all. But any biology book might be encoded as DNA. I’ve read that computer scientists are researching this very area, since DNA encodes far more densely than any known alternative – so, libraries on a pinhead, etc. OGT
