What is life?

There is no universal definition of life and there are a variety of definitions proposed by different scientists. Life is a condition that distinguishes organisms from inorganic matter, which is manifested by growth, reproduction and the power of adaptation to the environment. Properties common to a diverse array of living organisms such as fungi, protists, archea, bacteria, plants and animals include a cell structure with heritable information. They undergo metabolism, posses a capacity to grow, respond to stimuli, reproduce and through natural selection adapt to the environment, in successive generations.

So life is defined by scientists a characteristic of organism that exhibit these phenomena. According to Physicist Erwin Schrodinger, life feeds on negative entropy by decreasing the internal entropy of organisms at the expense of free energy taken in from the environment and subsequently rejected in a degraded form.
