Genetics as a Sender-Receiver Game

Recommended Posts

If anyone ever asks you how life came about - this is it.

Though obvious on some level I've never heard it expressed like this before.

I don't really have a good way of expressing how important what this

research has shown really is.

A very interesting article. Basing the origin of RNA and DNA on some optimization principle is very rememiscent of basing mechanic on a lest action or stationary action principle.

Game theory has some very important implications in biology. Not that survival is a "game" (In the sense of amusement) but that game theory has significant implications. Both game theory and solving for stationary actions are a way of bringing teleology into a physical science without being crazy.

I really like this approach - they have hit one out of the ballpark into another ballpark in another city.
