LIFE                
                                    
                                    
                                          
     A MULTITUDE OF DEFINITIONS     
        DOES   NOT   HELP.   WE       
      CAN     SAY     "LIFE     IS      
         WHAT   WE   ARE,   AND       
       WHAT  THINGS  LIKE  US       
       ARE",   BUT   THEN    WE       
     MUST    ALSO    DEFINE    WHAT     
     "THINGS  LIKE  US"  ACTUALLY     
      ENTAILS, HOW  IT SHOULD       
       BE   MEASURED,   WHO   OR      
     WHAT    IS    THE     ARBITER,     
      AND   SO   INSTEAD  THERE       
           IS   THIS   INTERNATIONALLY 
 SANCTIONED     LIST                   
          OF  CRITERIA          
                                          
 - LIFE MUST PRODUCE OR CONSUME MILK      
 - LIFE MUST HAVE A BEGINNING AND AN END  
 - LIFE CAN HAVE DREAMS AND CAN INTERACT  
 - LIFE CAN STEAL
