<<Building the complex designs glimpsed in any anatomy or physiology text
requires, at the very least, instructions that are vectorial--i.e., that
specify direction and place. These instructions are encoded somewhere--it
seems very likely that they reside in the heavily transcribed but
"non-protein coding" DNA.>>
