This book is the learn of all codes of existence with the normal tools of technology. The genetic code and the codes of tradition were identified for a very long time and symbolize the historic origin of this publication. what's particularly new during this box is the research of all codes that got here after the genetic code and before the codes of tradition. The life of those natural codes, even if, is not just an important experimental truth. it truly is a kind of evidence that experience amazing theoretical implications. the 1st is that the majority occasions of macroevolution have been linked to the starting place of latest natural codes, and this provides us a very new reconstruction of the background of lifestyles. the second one implication is that codes contain that means and we'd like hence to introduce in biology not just the idea that of knowledge but additionally the idea that of organic that 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 gentle new mechanisms that experience operated within the historical past of existence and new basic thoughts in biology.
