Greetings !

Well, this is indeed an intresting possibility.
However, I personally dislike the way it
treats other possibilities. To say that
almost 40,000 human genes are not enough to
display the apparent complexity we observe,
without some proof, is disrespectfull of modern
mathematics which includes chaos and other
advanced mathematical concepts which we can,
amongst other things, use to explain seemingly
incredible levels of complexity. It is also
disrespectful of QM which combined with modern
mathematics allows for an even greater diversity.

P.S. I recommend a popular level book called
Nature's Numbers by Ian Stewart which includes,
amongst others, some intresting aspects of
this complexity issue and modern mathematical
research in this direction.

Live long and prosper.
