DNA doesn't really "produce" anything; it is somewhat analogous to the way a roadmap doesn't produce a car trip. Even that analogy is pretty rough. There is a lot of devil in the detail between the DNA and the organism.

Of course, the organism doesn't really "produce" anything with the letters of the alphabet either, I think the proper relationship betwen these pairs (DNA-organism, Organism-language) is something like "association", instead of "production".

Nitpicking, something language is made for. Or, to use someone else's analogy, trying to understand and describe wholeness and What Is using language is as futile as trying to connect pieces of paper using a pair of scissors. Language and rationality fundamentally dissects, not connects.

Everything is an analogy, it can only reference to something that doesn't exist including lanquage, words, speaking & hearing.

It doesn't matter what is said or how it's said.... it's meaningless.

Spoken by no one...heard by no one....experienced by no one.

"That, which does the knowing, can not itself be known, & can not know its self."

What does this expression say?.....Nothing.

What does it mean?....Nothing.

And yet........there is apparent meaning. Go Figure..........
