NDNess of all things

I think you are right. I think of the "beads" of DNA that control the cells. There are only 4 "colors" (Guanine, Adenine, Cytosine, Thymine) like the four colors of a medicine wheel (Red, white, yellow, black/blue). The multiple combination of those beads/colors give us a message that tells the cell how to run.
By combining those "beads" of information we get multiple combinations with infinite possibilities.
Perhaps the "code" is in the medicine wheel after all?

I was just interested if anyone else gets stuck in thought holes like this or if I've been beading too much lately. It just seems that the more we learn about the world and life, the more truth we find in native teachings.

I like the patterns in things. And maybe ought to quit eating mushrooms that grow in the yard.
