symbolic threshold

last night i asked eldest niece: you must explain DNA to me. she was lying in bed when i asked this, but promptly sat up & took out her biology book from its knapsack. apparently, we haven't covered that yet. but we did find the DNA section. we both knew about ATCG, but i didn't know how they got strung together. niece did some explaining & a lightbulb went off. ok, why not use 64 hexagrams as a genome sequence? bit confused by 128 trigrams — trying to represent the three-letter codons.

Within a gene, the sequence of nucleotides along a DNA strand defines a messenger RNA sequence which then defines a protein, that an organism is liable to manufacture or "express" at one or several points in its life using the information of the sequence. The relationship between the nucleotide sequence and the amino-acid sequence of the protein is determined by simple cellular rules of translation, known collectively as the genetic code. The genetic code is made up of three-letter 'words' (termed a codon) formed from a sequence of three nucleotides (e.g. ACT, CAG, TTT). These codons can then be translated with messenger RNA and then transfer RNA, with a codon corresponding to a particular amino acid. Since there are 64 possible codons, most amino acids have more than one possible codon. There are also three 'stop' or 'nonsense' codons signifying the end of the coding region, namely the UAA, UGA and UAG codons. {DNA @ wikipedia; (see: DNA Interactive & BioCoach)}

my thinking is to identify 64 asteroid-pairs in the 827 list & assign each a hexagram; each asteroid assigned a trigram. {a} is there a way to distinguish two groups of trigrams (male/female, postive/negative, yang/yin)? {b} if yes, find zodiac start point & divide wheel & locate 64 asteroid pairs & assign yang trigrams to one side, yin trigrams to other side. {c} yin trigram + yang trigram = hexagram.

should i notate the end of the coding region with UAA, UGA & UAG?

reading Woese's On the Evolution of Cells (via the massively computational sd) noticed two interesting points: {1} Darwinian Threshold & {2} Symbolic Representation:

The Darwinian Threshold. The degree of connectedness of the componentry of the cell has profound evolutionary implications. If a cell was simple and highly modular in organization, HGT would play a stronger role in its evolution than otherwise (15, 21). Indeed, were that organization simple and modular enough, all of the componentry of a cell could potentially be horizontally displaceable over time. The organismal genealogical record would be ephemeral; no stable record could exist. Suppose that the primitive ancestors of modern cells were of this nature. That would mean that at its beginning, cellular evolution would have been driven in the main by HGT [horizontal gene transfer].

In its subsequent evolution a primitive cell of this type would become ever more complex, idiosyncratically connected, and thereby increasingly refractory to horizontal gene acquisition, especially the more spectacular forms of it (21). In other words, there would come a stage in the evolution of cellular organization where the organismal genealogical trace (recorded in common histories of the genes of an organism) goes from being completely ephemeral to being increasingly permanent (21). This point in evolution, this transition, is appropriately call the “Darwinian Threshold.” On the far side of that Threshold “species” as we know them cannot exist. Once it is crossed, however, speciation becomes possible (21). The Darwinian Threshold truly represents the Origin of Species, in that it represents the origin of speciation as we know it.

It has a name and criteria by which it can be recognized (21), but what actually is the evolutionary transition called the “Darwinian Threshold?” It could be an otherwise undistinguished mile marker along the road from simple to complex cells. Or it could represent a point in cellular evolution where something drastic occurs. I posit the latter. The cell is a complex dynamic system. As its connectedness increases such a system can reach a critical point, where a phase change occurs, where a new, higher level organization of the whole emerges (22). That, I suggest, is what the Darwinian Threshold represents, a hitherto unrecognized phase change in the organization of the evolving cell.

When Did the Evolution of Modern Cells Begin? The origin of proteinaceous cells is the most important single event in evolutionary history and, therefore, had to have occurred at some clearly definable evolutionary stage. I believe that stage is evident. Consider the following: in the evolutionary course there have been a few great junctures, times of major evolutionary advance. Their hallmark is the emergence of vast, qualitatively new fields of evolutionary potential, and symbolic representation tends to underlie such evolutionary eruptions. These “New Worlds” can arise when some existing biological entity (system) gains the capacity to represent itself (what it is and/or does) in some symbolic form (37). The resulting world of symbols then becomes a vast and qualitatively new phase space for evolution to explore and expand. The invention of human language is one such juncture. It has set Homo sapiens entirely apart from its (otherwise very close) primate relatives and is bringing forth a new level of biological organization. The most important of these junctures, however, was the development of translation, whereby nucleic acid sequences became symbolically representable in an amino acid “language,” and an ancient “RNA-world” gave way to one dominated by protein. It is clear that the modern cell could not have evolved except in such a period of great evolutionary expansion. The evolution of modern cells, then, had to begin with the onset of translation.

additionally, this is related to topics covered in Signing Up: communication system, mentalese (Pinker) & conceptual-intentional system (Chomsky), FLN & FLB, (and possible) social relations, number and navigation. weird idea that Chomsky's appendix (The Minimalist Program PDF) pertinent here (shudder).

i've been doing some form of astroschyzy since 2001. beginning simple structure based on Goëtia & ShemhaMephoresh pairs. around 01-Dec-2001, when i created first grid version in excel, i think i was adding up number pairs (can't remember exactly) until i created something that reminded me of the helical structure of DNA (goë-angelica order i used below). after doing that i thought of the Goë & Angelica as the grid's central nervous system. that initial version eventually became associated with the 220 list; current astroschyzy based on 827 list. variety of other concepts, symbols & other stuff added since 2001 — therefore, things are in the kitchen sink phase today. note: i use a fuzzy approach when implementing symbolic systems.

therefore ... astroschyzy reaches darwinian threshold once genomic sequence added (run for your lives!).

10:01pm update: dabnabbit, i was using digital reduction. disregard 6 & 3 at image top, that just seeds. zepar 1+6=7, aiau 6+7=13=4, etc. add each decan, each house, etc. hmmm. my, how things converge.
