As the arrangement of a print page is extraneous to the chemistry of the printed page,
so is the base sequence in a DNA molecule extraneous to the chemical forces at work in the DNA molecule. It is this physical indeterminacy of the sequence that produces the improbability of occurrence of any particular sequence and thereby enables it to have a meaning. A meaning that has a mathematically determinate information content.

basically he's saying that Just like the words and meaning on a printed page of a book have ZERO to do with the raw chemicals that make the ink or the paper.
the same goes for the DNA.
the chemicals that make DNA have ZERO to do with the MESSAGES WRITTEN and READ by DNA.
The information is not CAUSED by any natural reactions in chemistry or physics.

just like words in a book, a mind had to 1st create the CODE/Language/Symbols. Then they used a medium ...ink and paper... DNA molecules... to write it down so others could understand and apply.

the complex and dense information has nothing to do with and could not arise from a blank page or random chemicals.
