Life Is....

We can't create an exact definition for what LIFE is. I feel that we can always come close but there are so many different life forms that it is difficult to say that there is one way to describe that something is alive. I really thought that lab was interesting because there were so many different ways that the groups came up with how to decifer the different plants. When we were all asked to say how many different humans were in the class everyone had a different answer. It all depends on how the person observing thinks about it. I think that this is the same with life because everyone has a different opinion on what is considered to be alive. I would have never guessed that it would be this difficult to come up with a definition of LIFE. I know that this class won't give me an exact anser to what life is, but I will have a better understanding.
