The following diagrams show the two 7-chamber systems from population 3.
Note that no two boxes have two letters in common. This allows each box to maintain only its specified reaction. The following diagrams show the boxes rearranged into spirals maintaining the same connections. Note the closed path of the “repair” pathway.
- Yellow boxes represent components or “reaction chambers”
- Dashed thick black lines represent movement of the metabolism products and reactants
- Dashed thin red lines represent movement of the “repair” entities.
Alternative representations of the left diagram can be seen below.
Next we will look at the single 7-chamber diagram from population 2.
