I’m phred the phriendly wizard. 🧙🏼♂️
I like to make things on computer, piano, and paper. HMU with your dope wizard content
List of lists of lists:
I think the exciting thing is that molecular biology and information theory cross pollinate a lot, as well as the fact that cells do deterministic things based on their RNA and DNA, in response to their environment. So like, to me, it seems that computation is a feature of life / this universe, which is boggling and stunning and cool
I also read something about mutagenic gene expression in house flies. There are like, megastructures in genes? Like, the sections for legs, thorax, antennae are marked, and you can damage those sections in particular to make weird things happen like “legs instead of antenna”. The epistructure governs where the genes will be expressed but not the rest
Raise your hand if you stayed up late learning about molecular biology and fungal cells, including the veritable Spitzenkörper:
Sort of like the “growing tip” of a plant: it’s got all of the structures to push forward & differentiate into different types of cells.
