Foxy,

I really hate when people give their answer as "Here's an article, you can read all about what I know." It's like the person who repays a debt by saying "Joe owes me $20, you can get it off him."

I know Life adapts to environmental changes. Isn't that why Life has genes, to send messages to the cells about what's outside so that the cells can mutate in response to any changes that might stand in the way of survival?

What I am saying is that the role of Life is to feed. And it does this in all sorts of ways. But the common feature is that they all feed.

Do you or anyone else know of any other feature that all Life has in common, principally one that serves a specific purpose for the entity itself?

I'll try again with the link. It gives a
good summation from a biological point of view:

Mr O,

Why don't you instead of asking questions continually
allow yourself to open up your mind and actually take
notice of the references being given in an attempt to
answer some of the relevant questions being asked.

You just may learn something. What you like or do not like
is irrelevant. You need to respect the views of others if
you want them to return in kind.

Foxy,

I'm looking for answers, not empathy.
