The basis of ancient Chinese science was the theory of the immutable five elements; fire, water, metal, wood, earth, equally applicable to all aspects of the cosmos determined by the theory of analogous synonyms.Long dismissed by Western scientists as 'primitive science' by a 'primitive people', the discovery of DNA has necessitated that we change this opinion. DNA is composed of any number of just one single molecule composed of only five elements; carbon, oxygen, hydrogen. nitrogen and phosphorous. Every living thing on this planet is composed of these five elements making up the DNA molecule which determines the characteristics of all living thing and gives them life from elephants to the common garden weed. Combining into more and more complex organizations, the DNA five element molecule comprises more and more complex downstream products from elephant tusks to the human brain. But alwas only these five elements make up these products, differences between them in an infinite number of areas by the theory of analogous synonyms.
