The idea of life, the sense of being alive, are the most familiar and the most difficult to understand of the concepts we meet. Few biologists today think it is worthwhile to pay much attention to that distinction [between life and non-life]. Life is amazing. It is all around us in a diversity of forms, ranging from microscopic bacteria to ancient towering trees, from almost inert lichen to transient insect blooms, from birds flocking in the sky to thriving colonies of tube worms at inky deep-sea vents.

yes life is strange when we think about it.. thinking is a sign of life.... but...This topic is a bit philosophical rather than being biological... it should be discussed somewhere else not here....
