If we would not have been taught a language, we would still communicate with each other. A crow can communicate with a crow that has never met
another crow.This means that there should be a primordial language amongst all beings that are of the same species.
Or that they have evolved some sort of vocalizations. Some of this is learned, some is built in. Animals often have regional 'dialects' outside of
which they do NOT understand each other, even if they're the same species.
Sound interacts through the ears and brain to get to the DNA. Remember that every brain cell has DNA also. How come so many babies make the same
sorts of sounds.
In the case of mature neurons, IIRC they eject their spindle bodies and cease mitosis. So they never duplicate their DNA again. But, how do you
propose that sound goes to the brain and thence "gets to the DNA"? Why not go to the brain and be processed? How clumsy and slow it would be to
encode the sound into some sort of proteins, eject them into the blood stream, circulate it around the body, ingest it at each and every cell, then
unsupercoil and modify each and every nucleus in the body. For every sound uttered, or thing viewed, or sensation felt etc etc. No, that doesn't
happen. Your brain processes and stores the data. It's not processed by the DNA.
Babies start off making the same sounds. Because their mouths, tongues, palates and brain structures are similar. As they listen to their parents,
they start culling phonemes, and soon they sound different, depending on the languages they hear. By about 6 or 7, they'll begin to lose language
plasticity and will have difficulty learning languages without accents.
How come Chickens make different sounds when they are warm or cold. These sounds change, by interaction with primordial knowledge. So energy drives
the change. Energy is a frequency of energy the same as sound is.
Because chicken vocalization is what it is by inheritance. That's where your DNA comes in. There's some amount of functionality in the basic
"design". The sounds change, because the chicken vocalizes differently based on what it perceives. Not due to "primordial knowledge", whatever
that might be. Energy is a frequency of energy? What does that even mean?
If someone yells out "Hey" people look. With a little variation, Hey is a sound recognized by every culture. Why? It instructs humans to
OTOH, if I yell "Blargh" with the right inflection, people will also look.
DNA does not work alone, it is tied to a very big processor, our brains. Neurons flow all over the body but do not touch all the cells, the signal
goes to the cells through the electrolytic fluids in the body and the DNA of the cells trains the cells to syncronize their actions to form movement.
Those little antennas are necessary for that.
No, not at all. DNA isn't "tied" to your brain, although it does direct the form and function. It's true that neurons do not touch all the cells.
A lot of cells don't need innervation. They are controlled by various hormones and peptides, released from glands. The "signal" does not go through
the electrolytic fluids in the body, if a neuron doesn't communicate with another neuron by means of a gap junction, it does so by using chemical
neurotransmitters to a receptor on the target cell. In the case of motion, it's by that means. The neurons attach to a motor end plate on the muscle
cells and drive the muscle's contraction by sending acetylcholine across the synapse.
DNA doesn't have "little antennas".
