 Proof of Extra Terrestrial Life may Lie in Our Genes

Researchers suggest that the presence of alien life may be decoded through the messages stored in the cells of our bodies.

Vladimir I. shCherbak of al-Farabi Kazakh National University of Kazakhstan, and Maxim A. Makukov of the Fesenkov Astrophysical Institute, have hypothesized that an intelligent signal embedded in our genetic code would be a mathematical and semantic message that cannot be accounted for by Darwinian evolution, the Discovery News reported.

They researchers call it "biological SETI." And argue that the scheme has much greater longevity and chance of detecting E.T. than a transient extraterrestrial radio transmission.

Writing in the journal Icarus, they asserted that once fixed, the code might stay unchanged over cosmological timescales and that it is, in fact, the most durable construct known.

Therefore, they said, it represents an exceptionally reliable storage for an intelligent signature. They added that once the genome is appropriately rewritten the new code with a signature will stay frozen in the cell and its progeny, which might then be delivered through space and time.

To pass the designer label test, any patterns in the genetic code must be highly statistically significant and possess intelligent-like features that are inconsistent with any natural know process, the authors noted.

They go on to argue that their detailed analysis that the human genome displays a thorough precision-type orderliness in the mapping between DNA's nucleotides and amino acids.

"Simple arrangements of the code reveal an ensemble of arithmetical and ideographical patterns of symbolic language," they stated.

They said that this includes the use of decimal notation, logical transformations, and the use of the abstract symbol of zero.

"Accurate and systematic, these underlying patterns appear as a product of precision logic and nontrivial computing," they asserted.

This interpretation leads them to a farfetched conclusion: that the genetic code, "appears that it was invented outside the solar system already several billions years ago."
