You know what amazes me? In 3.2G of 2 2-bit codes, (so 4 bits to represent the pair, even though some combinations are not valid), therefore, 1.6Gbytes of data, DNA is capable of constructing a thinking, living, independently acting "machine". And I've read that a significant portion of that is meaningless junk, though I've also read that that may not be true at all.

Anyways, we have computers with 10 times that storage and storage devices with a thousand times that capacity, and what's the best that we can create? Windows 8? Mac OS? WTF?

Of course, the difference is that that 1.6GB of data creates something. Like the brain - your brain contains 100 billion neurons and 10,000 times as many connections - ok, now we're getting somewhere, as we can see how we are nowhere near the ability to represent and parallel process at femtosecond speeds that many connections.

Incredible.
