Convention and biochemical rules mean a treaty, an agreement, a standard of presentation or conduct, and inherently the product of a mind, intelligence and conscience. In the case of Cells, it must be a mind that sets the convention, rules, implementation of precision of organic chemistry, constraints by flexible organization, a program that works like software, able to interpret, recognize, select and discriminate the incoming signals and cues, and react in conformity and correctly, making correct choices, behaviors and responses across many hierarchical levels. Signal transduction does, in fact, qualify as a selection-driven recognition phenomenon. The cell is a semiotic structure and signal transduction is a meaning-making” process. The effects that external signals have on cells do not depend on the energy and information they carry, but on the meanings that cells give them with rules that can be called signal transduction codes. The deterministic rules of biochemistry being constrained by higher order principles can only depart from mental intelligence.
Most signal-relay stations we know about were intelligently designed. Signal without recognition is meaningless. Communication implies a signalling convention (a “coming together” or agreement in advance) that a given signal means or represents something: e.g., that S-O-S means “Send Help!” The transmitter and receiver can be made of non-sentient materials, but the functional purpose of the system always comes from a mind. The mind uses the material substances to perform an algorithm that is not itself a product of the materials or the blind forces acting on them. Signal sequences may be composed of mindless matter, but they are marks of a mind behind the intelligent design.
Cell internet: Cells have their own internet communication channels and cargo delivery service, all in one
- The setup and implementation of sophisticated, complex and advanced communication networks like the internet depend on the invention of highly intelligent, skilled communication network engineers.
- Multicellular organisms use several extremely advanced communication systems, like Tunneling nanotubes (TNT's), Extracellular Vesicles ( VT's) which are, on top of that, also cargo carriers ( there are also cell-cell gap junctions and exosomes ). The size of the communication and cargo delivery network of the human body is 75 thousand times the size of the entire world wide web, if there would be just one communication connection between each cell ( in reality, things are far more complex: each neuron cell computer may be connected to up to 10,000 other neurons )
- This is amazing evidence that multicellular organisms and their communication systems were definitively created by an extremely intelligent designer.
Imagine the internet not only as a world wide web for an interchange of information and communication but also a courier delivery service carrier of goods, like FedEx. That would be pretty convenient, wouldn't it? In 2018, there are an estimate of 4 billion computers connected through the internet, worldwide. Most recent data estimates the number of human Cells to 3.0·10^13 4 If we put that each cell uses just one communication channel to interact with other cells, then the size of the communication and cargo delivery network of the human body would be 75 thousand times the size of the world wide web !!
