Science you assume operates according to logical principles, and that often corresponds to truth, but need not. For instance, a virtual world is an imaginary one which is governed by rules of logic. A virtual world is like ultra-precise colckwork where events are defined relative to eachother - it could be likened to an assembly-line for making identical products, where precision & timing are the watchwords.

An absolute world exists in 4D space-time and its attributes define the attributes of the real world. This is the phenomenal world there are directions, up & down, east & west, ground & sky, sea & air. DNA can be considered as a virtual code because phenomenal information flows in one direction only. Hence, a tree is held by gravity, with roots that point down, a trunk pointing up, shoots branching outwards and foliage that photosynthesises electromagnetic energy from the sun.

The other 2 forces are strong & weak N, both of which are on atomic scale (only). A tree can be modeled virtually, but all the information on proportions etc flows one way. A tree is also a metaphor for anything which needs roots in order to be stable. This absolute information isn't present in DNA.

What did we do when we unchained this earth from its sun? Whither is it moving now? Whither are we moving now? Away from all suns? Are we not plunging continually? Backward, sideward, forward in all directions? Is there any up or down left? Are we not straying as through an infinite nothing? - Friedrich Nietzsche
