Or just search the dictionary on the site. It has plenty of information. Why can't people do a little bit of research on their own!!!! Sorry......lol :?

has anyone tries saying"not being dead?" i mean its not the scientific:
Life is a multi-faceted concept. Life may refer to the ongoing process of which living things are a part; the period between the birth (or a point at which the entity can be considered to be living) and death of an organism; the condition of an entity that has been born (or reached the point in its existence at which it can be established to be alive) and has yet to die; and that which makes a living thing alive....

generally speaking, need for consumption of something(air food ect) and the ability to adapt to its surroundings make something alive

what's more interesting is wether you should consider virusses to be alive.. I mean, we depend on other organismes to.. I mean tink about what would happen if we would suddenly have to feed ourselves... with sunlight and abiotic stuff... why is it such a big deal that virusses should use another organism to reproduce? it does have dna/rna ofcourse, and it does "do" things by itself. So why, why, why?

From the first few lines of your post, i thought u considered yourself a virus :D Viruses do not have their own methabolism, aren't capable of protein syntheis etc This is about the 10000th time this question is asked on the forum
