This book is the research of all codes of existence with the traditional tools of technology. The genetic code and the codes of tradition were identified for a very long time and characterize the historic origin of this ebook. what's fairly new during this box is the examine of all codes that got here after the genetic code and before the codes of tradition. The lifestyles of those natural codes, in spite of the fact that, isn't just an incredible experimental truth. it's a type of proof that experience awesome theoretical implications. the 1st is that almost all occasions of macroevolution have been linked to the starting place of recent natural codes, and this offers us a totally new reconstruction of the historical past of lifestyles. the second one implication is that codes contain that means and we'd like accordingly to introduce in biology not just the idea that of knowledge but additionally the idea that of organic which means. The 3rd theoretical implication comes from the truth that the natural codes were hugely conserved in evolution, this means that they're the best invariants of existence. The learn of the natural codes, in brief, is bringing to mild new mechanisms that experience operated within the heritage of existence and new primary strategies in biology.
