Introduction to schematic structures
Schematic structures are constructed from simple building blocks, such as nucleic acids, a nucleotide base is the side chain purine (A or G) or pyrimidine (T or C).  A is a natural pair for T.  G pairs naturally with C.  These bases have multiple uses in cells including energy transfer, second messenger signalling as well as genetic data storage, transcription and translation.  Deacon argues that the multiple uses are significant to the emergence of evolution. 
or the letters of the alphabet.  These blocks are able to link together into groups, lists and networks, and directly or indirectly associate with agents(p.13)
