The RNA Cube
The Double helix is made of two structure strands and the little stairs connecting the two strands.
Each of the stairs is the combination of one letter and the complement letter. C and G are complement and A and T are complement. for example:
--C---T---A-- on one strand has the complement | | | --G---A---T-- on the other strand.
We read only on one of the two strands. This single strand is called RNA. The other side is an inverse copy.
There are four letters, each represents an I-Ching Bigram.
Their value is 0, 1, 2 or 3 respectively.
U 0 Earth C 1 Water A 2 Fire G 3 Air = = = = === === = = === = = ===
Each hexagram and its equivalent RNA codon are constructed with three of this letters ! ! !
RNA UAG CCG AGU Reading Codon left to right is hexagram top to bottom. First letter of Codon is Top bigram. Top Earth Water Fire Middle Fire Water Air Bottom Air Air Earth
For the binary value of each codon you have to do the following:
Top 0 16 32 Middle 8 4 12 Bottom 3 3 0 ------------------------------------- Binary 11 23 44
In a cube all this makes sense.
Scroll up again and see that in any direction there is only one letter changing.
