What Is Life? The Definition of Life explained by Biology.

For as long as humanity has studied Life it has struggled to define itself. It is said that there is currently no unequivocal consensus regarding the definition of Life. One popular definition is that organisms are open systems that maintain homeostasis, are composed of cells, have a life cycle, undergo metabolism, can grow, adapt to their environment, respond to stimuli, reproduce and evolve. Now I am, as a scientist and biologist, certain that the definition of Life is Simple: Life is Self. Yes. It is true. Self is One. Oneself Is. Oneself Always Is. But that's not all. The definition of Life is Self desiring not to be by itself. The definition of Life is Self desiring Companionship. The definition of Life is Self desiring Love. Love is the meaning of Life? Yes. It is so. Love is the meaning of Life for Life is Self desiring Love. Love rightfully so is the highest principle for there is but one principal desiring Love. There where biodiversity is perceived is Self perceiving itself as diverse not to be by itself. There where otherness is perceived is Self perceiving itself as otherness to experience togetherness. There where is 'us', 'we', 'the plurality' is one desiring not to be alone. As such the definition of Life is Self experiencing itself as itself out of Love. To Love and Be Loved. Love is the meaning of Life for Life is not Life but Self desiring Love.
