Since the discovery of DNA the metaphor of writing to the genetic makeup of living beings has been a tempting one to engage. As George and Muriel Beadle wrote in 1966 (and as Marcello Barbieri points to in his essay “What is Biosemiotics?”) “The deciphering of the genetic code has revealed our possession of a language much older than hieroglyphics, a language as old as life itself, a language that is the most living language of all—even if its letters are invisible and its words are buried in the cells of our bodies” (Beadle and Beadle 1966).

After 6 years of terrible violence, the war in Syria grinds on, and after surviving harrowing journeys, millions of people remain displaced, trapped in camps, between “borders,” tangled in bureaucratic processes. Meanwhile, anti-refugee campaigns have gained traction in certain wealthy nations best suited to mitigate the suffering of innocent people. Though a refugee crisis of this magnitude and duration is rare on the world stage, such catastrophes are not new and, today, not limited to Syria.

In June of 2015, United States President Donald J. Trump promised to build a border wall to impede the passage of Latin American individuals into the United States. This pledge propelled his unlikely campaign. On September 24, 2017, President Trump signed a third attempt at an executive order that would institute a temporary travel ban on individuals from Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, and Chad. These are only two recent instances of political bans and obstacles imposed on travel.
