Tom Bunzel: If DNA is Software, Who Invented the Code
In his book, If DNA is Software, Who Wrote The Code? — The Profound Significance of Life’s Programming Language, Bunzel explains that software (or computer code) has identical properties to DNA (and may be a stark example of inadvertent biomimicry). Extracting meaning from different symbols — in this case A, C, T, and G, which represent chemicals or proteins — allowed scientists to resurrect extinct species by “copying and pasting” DNA code.
If an organic programming language has been at the heart of evolution, then Mind must be the programming energy.
