  • Guanine ~ Cytosine, Adenosine ~ thymine, two complementary pairs that are themselves coexistent, dynamically inextricable…complementary. In Squigglespeak, we call this a “Squiggle square”. In the case of life as we know it, the coordination dynamics of just two complementary pairs, two ‘squiggles’ is sufficient to propagate~replicate the genetic code…

  • Only Guanine, only cytosine, only adenosine, only thymine, either guanine or cytosine or adenosine or thymine, guanine and cytosine and adenosine and thymine, guanine changing to cytosine changing to adenosine changing to thymine, cytosine changing to guanine changing to thymine changing to adenosine, between guanine and cytosine and adenosine and thymine, neither guanine nor cytosine nor adenosine nor thymine, beyond guanine and cytosine and adenosine and thymine…
