Is DNA a hyper-advanced technology, put right in front of our faces by a vast super-intelligence?
Has it been sitting there this whole time, just waiting for us to decode it — and develop unimaginably wonderful new technologies?
Could DNA be a ‘machine’ that is far more complex and difficult to reverse-engineer than silicon chips had been?
Wait a minute now. DNA is way too small to be a computer chip. The "base pairs" of the DNA molecule are built of single atoms!Computer chips are certainly tiny, with millions of transistors printed on a single piece of silicon, but individual atoms are much, much, much smaller.
