Everyone has seen a visual representation of the double helix structure of DNA, the twisted ladder if molecules. This unique structure, usually shown as either a static three dimensional representation or one rotating around a central vertical axis, is aw inspiring. It’s simplicity of form and the sheer elegance of its configuration is a masterwork and its discovery is the corner stone of genetic science.
However, it is my thought that, the elegance and apparent simplicity of its structure can be misleading and cause one to overlook certain aspects of the relationship between the parts of its structure and its nature and function.
DNA is not a static amalgam of molecules locked in a set mechanical form. It is instead, like a series of moving, interconnected, interdependent, self-replicating set of tightly wound springs. DNA is an explosively dynamic structure wherein every constituent part is in constant, repetitious, energetic and dynamic motion.
Is the problem one of not asked the right questions, couching the questions in the wrong words or are we simply limiting the results of our experimentation. Limiting the outcome by accepting, without fully questioning, the limits of the current definitions of how data can be stored, transmitted and executed.
Consider this. Each atom has a nucleus constituted of many tightly bound, sub-atomic particles that are in a constant state of extremely energetic, three-dimensional, repetitious motion. One need only look at the physics of nuclear fission to appreciate the tremendous energy contained within this seemingly simple core structure.
Each nucleus in turn is orbited by a number of electrons that are also in a state of constant, repetitious, highly energetic three-dimensional motion. The orbits of these electrons are not fixed but change with each orbit.
The core principals of this hypothesis are based upon the fact that all of these motions change constantly and are repeated over time. There is an overall pattern within this never-ending dance of sub-atomic, atomic and molecular participants that is observable, provable and magnificently complex.
It is also known that these orbits are affected by what is referred to as spinning up, which is achieved by the application of electromagnetic energy. It is further known that, when such an energy infusion is terminated, the orbits return to their previous energy (spin) levels by releasing the energy stored during the process of spinning-up.
Each atom within a given molecular structure is actively and energetically bonded to each adjacent atom in the molecule at one point in space and time by what is referred to as a valence bond. At the point of this interactive bond between atoms of a given molecular structure the orbits are connected in some way. It is generally accepted that the orbits not only connect but that the electrons are shared even to the point of changing orbit from one atom to the other.
It is this dynamic interconnectivity, repeating over time that forms the framework within which the data is stored in the form of a three-dimensional positional representation as seen at any specific point in time. Further, it is the vehicle through which data is transferred and acted upon through the application of electromagnetic attraction and repulsion.
Utilizing the simplest mathematical form I can come up with the following occurs. With only two atoms, each having one orbiting electron and one non-particulate nuclei, you still end up with four dynamic points whose relative positions in space, at any given read point in time, can be used to represent four data bits. Depending upon the speed at which these points are moving separately and relative to each other and the sensitivity and duration of each read point it is readily apparent that the number of possible combinations is mind numbingly astronomical. The best I have been able to come up with using my extremely limited abilities is 1 to more zeros than will fit here.
Basis of Hypothesis
With the forgoing in mind, consider the following.
1. Within each cell there exists all of the basic material, in both free roaming atomic and complex molecular form, to produce any portion of an amino acid, and for that matter, any organic molecule such as a protein or enzyme.
2. There also exists the energy base, in the form of the molecular tension inherent in the intra-molecular positional relationships of the valence bonding, to drive both the programming and manufacturing functions of these structures.
3. Each grouping of molecules, which makes up each individual gene, contains information which is stored in the form of positional relationships, bonding patterns, tensions, individual electron path spin and location as well as the overall atomic pattern and spin relationships in space and time. All of these factors are interactive and repetitious in nature. The data storage and data transfer functions of these structures are all relative to space (the physical location of each component of the structure) and time (the relative locations of each of these components over time) in nature
4. Each and every molecule is made up of atoms that are, individually and collectively, dynamic and in a constant state of highly energetic and stable repetitious motion.
5. This energetic and repetitious motion of component parts is interlocking, interactive and interdependent, wherein each position of each and every component represents a separate data which, when added together with others represents packets of data.
6. These Data Packets consist of Informational Data Transfer Packets (IDTP) and Time Related Action Packets (TRAP).
7. The TRAPs are the hands of the factory and perform all physical functions performed by the structure.
8. The IDTPs are the construction blueprints and contain Data Sub-Sets (DSS) containing data relating to such things as history and function.
9. These Data Sub-Sets well contain data relating to the positional and interactive relationships with other sub-sets of data within related components of the overall structure.
10. These Data Sub-Sets would further contain data relating to such things as the interactivity over time with other DSSs, IDTPs, TRAPs and other DSSs (like the clocking and check sum functions of a computer program).
It is my contention that:
a. This energetic motion and interactive connectivity is both the information storage and manufacturing mechanism by which DNA functions. In short, not only do these genes contain coded information, they are in fact individual segments of a cyclically repetitive, linier, self-replicating manufacturing facility.
b. The informational, construction, clocking (when a specific action is to be performed) and check sum (as in a computer program, that segment of data which checks the data transferred) encoded data consists of and is contained within the interactive structure, cyclic, repetitious positioning, bonding and spin of each atom within each molecule of each gene.
c. Further, these repetitious positional relationships of bonding and spin are interactive and interdependent within both the individual structure of each component, the DNA structure as a unit as well as with its cellular environment.
d. Thus, each component of the overall structure, as well as the environment within which it resides, effects and is in turn, effected by all of these related factors.
Consider this; each molecule is made up of atoms that are comprised of a nucleus and orbiting electrons that are in constant, repetitious, three dimensional motion. Each nucleus in turn is made up of an, at this time, unknown number of sub-atomic particles that are themselves in a state of constant, highly energetic, interdependent, three-dimensional motion. Each atom is actively bonded to each other within this molecule at a point in space and time by what is referred to as a valence bond. It is at this point of interactive bonding that the electrons of these connected atoms interact and in fact may, as some postulate, be shared even to the point of changing orbit from one atom to the other.
It is my contention that this repeating three dimensional dance which represents not only the program encoded within each DNA molecule but that it draws to it the other atomic level and molecular raw material for the purposes of manipulating then as a method of transferring instructional data as well as to form an energized physical structure which will lead to the next step in constructing the end product molecular structure.
Data Storage Capacity of the Above Referenced Model
A. Even in its simplest form, the above model represents a capacity for the storage of an astronomical amount of data in an exceptionally compact space.
B. This model further represents a capability for, not only storing but, transferring such data in an extremely efficient, dependable, rapid and repeatable manner.
C. The mechanism for this data storage and transfer is the physical structure of the molecule.
D. The method for said transfer is the electromagnetic interaction between the various parts of the molecule and the surrounding environment.
How this occurs is that each segment of the molecule sets up an attractive electromagnetic field by the positioning of its component parts at a point in time within its cycle. This field interacts with the immediate molecular environment to attract specific raw materials (if they are present) and then modifying them via electromagnetic interaction to prepare said material to bond in a specific way to the next atom or molecule at the next station along the chain. If the raw material is not present, the molecule continues to cycle until it reaches that point again when the material is present.
After the individual DNA station has drawn in and modified the material, the segment of material thus prepared could be drawn along the chain to the next position for further material additions or modifications, this is one possible method.
A second possibility would be that the thus produced molecule could stay where it is. In this scenario, it would be modified in place by a further cycling of that specific DNA chain position until a point was reach where it would be ready to bond with the molecule located at the adjacent DNA station along the chain.
In considering this hypothesis, the first question becomes, how do you prove it? There is strong circumstantial evidence for my hypothesis based upon the complex shapes of proteins that are manufactured within the cell. The very convoluted nature of the intricate folds and curls in these structures speaks to the bonding and stresses built into each protein when it is constructed. This would directly relate to my model where the raw material is drawn in and acted upon by electromagnetic forces during the time when the molecule is being constructed.
