Our bodies are truly amazing. Science sets the length of all the DNA in our 100 trillion cells as 2.0 × 1013 meters or 6.56 X1013. That is the equivalent of nearly 70 trips from the earth to the sun and back. Calculated as:
2.0 × 1013 meters = 133.691627 astronomical units
133.691627 / 2 = 66.8458135 round trips to the sun
One of the smallest units of our body is our DNA base pairs. Placing all of them (in our bodies) together yields a massive length (about 70 round trips to the sun). That is amazing. If we consider that this DNA is our hardware that is a lot of computer power. Epigenetic’s “plays” on top of this (software) to produce all the things our bodies need. We are the result of this vast database of knowledge.
