The DNA Mystery


DNA has been found to have a bizarre ability to put itself together, even at a distance, when according to known science it shouldn’t be able to.  Explanation:  None, at least not yet.

Scientists are reporting evidence that contrary to our current beliefs about what is possible, intact double-stranded DNA has the “amazing” ability to recognize similarities in other DNA strands from a distance. Somehow they are able to identify one another, and the tiny bits of genetic material tend to congregate with similar DNA. The recognition of similar sequences in DNA’s chemical subunits, occurs in a way unrecognized by science. There is no known reason why the DNA is able to combine the way it does, and from a current theoretical standpoint this feat should be chemically impossible.

Even so, research published in ACS’ Journal of Physical Chemistry B, shows very clearly that homology recognition between sequences of several hundred nucleotides occurs without physical contact or presence of proteins. Double helixes of DNA can recognize matching molecules from a distance and then gather together, all seemingly without help from any other molecules or chemical signals.

I’m searching my storage facility this week for an old VHS dub of a former bank president who discloses information related to Chomsky’s comments here.  As far as I recall the tape was copied and distributed to public access television stations around the country.  It’s a hoot.  If I can’t locate it, or the quality is lacking, I’ll do my best to find a producer who has a better copy.
