What Defines Life?
 
I think it's fair to say humans are considered alive...
So are animals, they make decisions and have functionality..
Trees and plants are considered life... But why? Because they breathe..
What about bacteria is that considered alive..
Diseases?


What defines our idea of "life"?

The ability to grow, respond, adapt, metabolize and reproduce, as per the biological definition.

Interestingly enough ... a "Virus" is not considered to be alive or dead.

Does it have to have all of these qualities?

Life is defined by the ability to throw down monster jams.

I feel this falls into the realm of philosophy, which will be as productive as figuring out what is the meaning of life.

Well, if it reproduces, that is really /end thread.
