Hello, vsb, you wrote: vsb> the insertion whence is flooded? A question to the interesting. Basically, in an egg there should be all not only about an amount of pinches and the form of pens, but also how to cackle and crow, and, how to be afraid of a kite, and about that in small river not to climb. If for a kitten still it is possible to assume that on a course of pre-natal development something is transferred from mum-cat for a chicken deduced in a stupid callous incubator, such variant does not roll. It is possible to assume, of course, that egg is connected to to the world of ideas and "hen" extorts from an eidos, but let's better mad not now, and somehow another time Despite tremendous scientific progress (really shaking, without everyone ), on this question, as far as I understand, the distinct answer is not present, and it is even not clear that this answer can represent itself. But already now it is possible to look, what tools with which help it is possible to try at us is. At first, there is a concept of Kolmogorov complexity. Egg - the program, and an incubator bringing heat - the general-purpose calculator. If to renounce from with prorolling from an eidos complexity of a hatching chicken cannot be above complexity of egg. Or even, if to accept for true that fiber and a yolk shows no more, than a building material, not above complexity impregnated . Secondly, Benua Mandelbrota's diligence we know that not always visible complexity corresponds to true (). The Mandelbrot set looks difficult, especially if to consider it under the big magnification, but Kolmogorov complexity - ten lines of a source code. Basically, on a problem, but it is necessary to understand quite good stopping that fractals - very capricious pieces. For example, it is impossible to twist a little bit algorithm so that here was specific this flourish of Mandelbrot set was tore slightly in another way. Any editing of a source code transforms at once result into something absolutely another. At once all. That is the principle is certainly useful (and will for certain be involved by the mother-nature to the full extent), but one a chicken it does not turn out it. Thirdly, we know about DNA. This piece, likely, a unique thing similar to the text in impregnated . Therefore we in it a finger also say that here it, the information. It is more than anything similar to the text we do not find and fondly we consider that except DNA in a cell no information is present. In our marvelous new century of information technologies we got used to that the data happens only numeral, but it, of course, naivety. The data happens also, at least, analog. And that is interesting, it is impossible to measure the analog data in bits and to apply to them concept of Kolmogorov complexity: Numeral capacity (infinity are equal in bits) and Kolmogorov complexity of any analog value. If in impregnated there is something analog (and it there is, because all but in DNA there analog) there is nothing surprising that infinitely difficult turns to infinitely difficult chicken. There is no that logic to which it would contradict. Fifthly, except the old kind naive information theory oriented on date transmission in communication networks, there is hardly more specified theory according to which the information is a combination of a signal and a context. That is it is necessary to look not only at the text (in our case it is DNA), but on ability this text to interpret. Even with reference to our literal texts besides texts there is still a knowledge of language, convergence on word meanings, understanding what for this or that is told here and now. This knowledge, convergence and understanding - too the information. That is except actually sequence (text) in a cell the abyss of other information making a context for this text is simply obliged to be. Thus, I remind, the answer to a question "the insertion" at us whence is flooded is not present. The question is opened. Themselves we will not deceive. Generally, open questions it is not necessary to be frightened. It is absolutely normal. "Scientists do not know..." - well, they much that does not know. If they already knew all, laboratories could be closed, and scientists to disperse. Open questions are not problems, and tasks.
