comment Does DNA contain information beyond protein synthesis?
Thanks! Very helpful. What about my hypothesis that not all biological information is split between genotype/information carrier and phenotype/embodiment, but some actually is closer to prototype + copier? Specifically, organelles and cells are never created ex nihlo from any type of information but always split from a preexisting one?

comment Why is most tissue cellular?
Why "one gigantic cell"? Why cell at all? Why have zillions of small parts (nucleous, membranes) which don't directly contribute to tissue function? As a note, very few artificial machines work that way (though perhaps integrated circuits could be argued to).

Thanks - can you clarify: Does the cellular nature directly contribute to tissue function? Do organelles directly contribute to tissue function? Why are cells the origin of every life? Has this question been explored ever?
