Depends how you are defining life. There is a huge difference between merely being alive and sentient living.
A bacterium is alive and has life but I dispute it has a life in the sense in which we as humans commonly use the term.


I don't know what it is. l know what it was, a weekly magazine.


Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow,
A poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more:
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing...shakespeare


A brief encounter of matter and energy.


It's a brief window of awareness prior to death. Enjoy it.


It's that thing that comes between birth and death.


"Life can then but little else supply, but a few good fucks, and then you die." --John Wilkes


Little more than it’s biological definition..

Only the journey, not the definition, matters. At journey's end... You then get to answer, "What is death?"


A four letter word.


All the cells living on this world need to maintain a differential of electric charge between the outside of its membrane and the inside of its membrane. When that differential can no longer be maintained, the cell dies.


"Life is but a walking shadow.
A poor player who struts and frets his hour upon the stage
and then is heard no more.
It is a tale told by an idiot,
full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."

Love , fuck , did ?


Are you asking: "what is the meaning of life?"

I know that one,,,,,,Monty Python!

Yes dear..


Local drop of entropy.

True. A raindrop is also a local drop in entropy.

Thank you!! You got a lovely smiles...

@EdEarl Any structural complexity increment is an entropy decrement.

@Humbleness1957 Thank you!


Another way for the universe to expend energy.

That's called gastric disturbance. Phttttttttttt!


Lots of trial and error the occasional win mostly finding ways to amuse yourself lots of waiting for sure.


not sure ... I know the best thing in it is to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women!

And then,,,,,,EAT THEIR CANDY!!!!!
