Marcello Barbieri sets out his theory that there are many more organic codes in nature than just the genetic code. He states that these codes and their organic memories can be used to explain major evolutionary steps, with major events corresponding with the appearance of new codes. These codes can also shed new light on the problems encountered in cell signalling, epigenesis, embryonic development, and the evolution of language.
