Defining Life – What it Means if I’m Right

Old Dandylion

This is part of a series: Define Life

In my previous post, I tried to make a more precise definition of life.  Now, I’ll list some practical ramifications of it.

  1. Life is a machine
    A self-sustaining factory is a type of machine
  2. The value of life is the value that its creator places on it – including human life
  3. It is possible for humans to understand all the inner workings of living things
  4. It is possible for humans to reverse-engineer life
  5. It is possible for humans to invent new species
  6. It is possible for humans to create life that’s built on technologies that are completely different from what God’s creatures are made of
