The geometric origin of the aminoacids

Bifurcation in biosynthesis may be the driving force of evolution, and explain why
there are only 20 proteinogenic aminoacids, out of 64 possible base combinations

The Four Causes in cyclic creation through bifurcation:

  • In the groundstate, the Four Causes are indistinguishable, only bifurcation makes them distinguishable.

  • After bifurcation, the Formalis (formal cause) represents the whole groundstate, and so on.

  • The bifurcation becomes recursive if the number of permutation groups equals the number of causal factors.

  • The bifurcation generates a cyclic mode, consisting of an extroversial creation phase (in the present context the phenotype), and an introversial creation phase (genotype).

  • For a single phase or demi-cycle, the recursiveness naturally forms as there are 4 causes mapped to 4 permutations - there are no constraints, therefore the bifurcation is spontaneous.

  • For the full dual phased creation cycle (of biosynthesis) the permutations are constrained as follows:

    • there must be a prescribed bifurcation axis for each phase
    • there must be a specific number of concurrent cycles

making the bifurcation more arduous.

4 Indistinguishable causes, extroversial

"c" = indistinguishable cause
"i" = symmetry axis identifyer

4 partial permutations:

1 Symmetry axis identifier
n Concurrent cycles
4 Indistinguishable causes, introversial
1 Symmetry axis identifier

10 + 2n = Number of elements = 4 x n >>> 20

Axiomatic and molecular grouping

The morphology of the set of proteinogenic aminoacids is naturally grouped in such a way that it reflects the bifurcation into the Four Causes through the dual phased creative cycle. The grouping based on the NH2-C-COOH groups matches the axiomatic grouping as follows (once sorted, the groups are randomly matched):

Groupings, axiomatic Groupings, NH2-C-COOH morphologically identical  
4 indistinguishable causes, extroversial GLY - VAL - ASN - THR
1 Formalis / bifurcation identifier ASP
4 Indistinguishable causes, introversial TRP - CYS - GLU - SER
1 Formalis / bifurcation identifier ARG
Cycles - extroversial, introversial idential pairs    
1 - 1 PHE - TYR
2 - 2 ILE - LYS
3 - 3 THR - HIS
4 - 4 LEU - GLN
5 - 5 ALA - MET
Total groups: 9, total elements: 20 Total groups: 9, total elements: 20  

Geometry of the aminoacids in extroversial and introversial phase

  • The octahedron bifurcates through bi-section (systaltic, vector, multi-symmetrical, divergent)
  • The icosahedron restores symmetry through "Phi-section" (synergetic, scalar, "Phi-furcated", omni-symmetrical, convergent)
  • The 20 axiomatic / molecular permutations are 20 permutations of the octahedron in the icosahedron
  • The 5 x 2 cycles are 5 x 2 icosahedral angles, the 2 x 4 causes are 2 x 4 octahedral spins, the 2 identifiers the 2 possible symmetry axes

Geometrization of proteinogenic aminoacids, at first showing the 2 main groups, forming one of the 5 concurrent creation cycles,
with resp. bifurcation / symmetry restore axes.The tetras bisected by the octa during the extroversial phase, are "Phi-sected"
during the introversial phase.

Adding the 5 concurrent cycles - the geometry brings the 20 elements
and their 20 causal permutations in one model together

The octahedron and its 20 permutations in the icosa, assuming a given symmetry axis.
The 20 elements have become 20 permutations - the recursion is solved.
