Musings from a Cosmology of Light #24: NucleicAcid-Polysaccharide-Lipid-Protein Light-Based Quadrality

In its continued material expression the infinite potential in Light, organized as four overarching principles becomes the basis of universal cosmic parameters of space, time, energy, and gravity, the basis of the pre-physical electro-magnetic-wavearchetype-masspotential system, the basis of the physical quark-lepton-boson-Higgsboson quantum-particle system, and the basis of the chemical ‘s’Shell-’p’Shell-’d’Shell-’f’Shell element system.

In this musing, we reflect on how Light also becomes the basis of all biological systems. Essentially every living cell is animated by four molecular plans. These are, respectively, nucleic acids, polysaccharides, lipids, and proteins.

But on examination of nucleic acids, we find that this is none other than a materialization of Light’s aspect of knowledge. This is so because nucleic acids create DNA in cells which we know is the repository of knowledge in the cell.

Polysaccharides are simple sugars that are sources of energy and power in the cell. They are hence, a materialization of Light’s aspect of power in the cell.

Lipids create compartments in the cell and allow specialization of work. This allows harmony to be established in the cell. Lipids, hence, are a materialization of Light’s aspect of harmony in the cell.

Proteins are workhorses. In a human cell, for example, there are over 30,000 proteins doing all the work. These proteins are instruments of service, diligence, perseverance — those aspects that make up the vast activity in a cell hence defining the very notion of presence. Proteins, therefore, are a materialization of Light’s aspect of presence in the cell.

These four universal molecular plans, present in all living cells and founded on Light’s properties of knowledge, power, presence, and harmony, hence become a nucleicacid-polysaccharide-lipid-protein light-based quadrality.
