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
