JK: So when you said invisible life is trying to break free...
B: For example, there is a medium in mathematics where you find something like
the Mandlebrot set, which is a feature of the universe which is as real as Mt. Everest but that was previously invisible to us until we had something with which to essentially photograph that reality. And there are many other media that we will never know because we are too bound up, our perceptions are physically contained. But if you think about the RNA/DNA interchange, the arrangement of nucleotides along the DNA molecule, what’s important there is the agency that stacks those proteins in the order they are. The proteins are kind of irrelevant, it’s the pattern of information that
is relevant. You see what I mean?
JK: Yes, it’s not the 0’s and the 1’s. It’s the pattern..
B: It’s the space between the 0’s and the 1’s. That’s what Leibniz knew.
