Dennett I 221
Semantics/Syntax/Eigen: the structural stability is not related to semantic information. This is only expressed in the translation product. Nature prefers certain letters.
G and C are preferred because they are the most stable as replicators and not because they are most common in genetic "words".
The preference, which is initially syntactic, combines with a semantic imbalance: the logic of the code scheme results from purely physical or chemical conditions.
Meaning/Eigen/Dennett: The whole thing has meaning because it works!
