The higher level code spoken of here are called the "homeotic genes" that do code for the body plan of - as far as is known - every organism in the animal kingdom. These genes are, of course, regulatory genes and are still DNA but they do code at a "higher level". I think after comparative genomics are done on other animals this IS what will allow humans to genetically program themselves to transcend their current biological limitations as Transhumanism (and I) desire. See some others explain homeotic genes (guys with Ph.D. and such) from a few links I have collected: Sincerely,
