I have been observing the thread that tries to compare manuscript
writing to DNA translation.  My biological experience suggests that
models in biology are based on observed emperical data. Although there
are analogies between the two since both are information writing, can
detailed similarity be anything but fortuitous.  Maybe I am missing
something but it seems like an interesting comparison, whose point I
don't quite see.
