One response to “What is Life?”

  1. There are no simple answers that would explain what life is. Life is many things and life is understood in different ways depending on how much knowledge and information you have, and your ability to understand it all. So there’s a lot that we can talk about since life is a large subject. There are many big questions to ask. You would need to have conversations with many different people. So what version would you like, the short answer or the long answer? The short answer is, there is no short answer. You need to narrow down your question to something more specific. Is there something in particular about life that you would wish to talk about? You could ask “where did I come from?” and I could answer “your mother”. But maybe you were looking for a different answer, like where did humans come from? Which we have a lot of information about. There is the biological process of life, which we can explain to a certain point, and then there is the consciousness of life that humans experience. Why humans have conscious awareness is still not totally clear. You can easily say that consciousness was created by design, because why else would you have consciousness? Then there’s physics that tries to explain where and how life started. There’s a lot about life that we can explain. And there are some things about life that we can’t fully explain, because we are still young and still learning. The best advice is to stick with the facts of life and try not to get too philosophical about life. Big questions can always be broken down into simple and smaller questions with meaningful explanations. Keep your mind open to the big questions, but don’t let the big questions keep you from knowing the facts, because even curiosity needs balance. It’s just a matter of time before we know more. So what part of life are you interested in knowing about? What do we know so far about life on planet earth?

    Life is the experience of being alive. The course of human events and activities that happens in ones lifetime. An account of the series of events making up a person’s life. The condition of living or the state of being alive. The course of existence of an individual. The actions and events that occur in living. The period during which something is functional between birth and death. The organic phenomenon that distinguishes living organisms from nonliving ones. Living things collectively.
