AN INTERESTING FACT
From THE COSMIC SERPENT, DNA AND THE ORIGINS OF KNOWLEDGE, JEREMY NARBY, 1998, TARCHER/PUTNAM
There are 125 billion miles of DNA in a human body. Our personal DNA is long enough to wrap around the earth 5 million times.
I was specially interest by this fact when I was rolling up some yarn after having divided it into two, and having hell of time with it. DNA DOES NOT GET ENTANGLED!
“The enzymes which both repair the double helix in case of damage and correct any errors in the DNA replication process make only one mistake in ten billion letters.”
So keep the wonder alive. It is what makes us human and keeps us marveling at this existence of ours!
