Yeah, looks fun! And a little dense so it will take me a few days... However, my complaints will certainly mirror those of the refutation Firebrandroaring posted. Numerology is entertaining but fruitless (except in cases when you can use it to exploit others to your own gain!)

The math is dismayingly simple. The only keys to understanding are to have a very basic conception of what they mean by nucleon numbers in the block and side chains of amino acids, and how the degenerate codons are grouped. If you can conceptualize those, you'll get it right away.
