Not heard of this before. Any suggested reading/sites???
I'll suggest that you try and search for "Sefer Yetzirah", Kabbalah, Sefiroth, "Tree of Life", "Hebrew alfabet". Hopefully you'll find a page
about the Kabbalistic Tree of Life, or the Sefirot Tree. There are ten sefirots and 22 connections between them. One for each letter in the Hebrew
alfabet. When you draw up the geometric figure called the Tree of Life using a pair of compasses and a ruler, the first step is to draw four circles
along a straight line. This is also the first you'll have to draw to make a double helix, the shape of our DNA. Now: Four circles = four proteins?
Ten sefiroth = ten combinations of the four proteins? 22 connections = 22 amino acids? I used to have several links to material like this, but I've
lost the old bookmarks... Start searching yourself, it's really interresting. Perhaps you should also check out some Kabbalistic newsgroups too. But
keep in mind that there's much phoney Kabbalistic stuff around. There's also many who refer to Kabbalah as Qaballah. Good luck!
