Baby names meaning life
The dictionary defines life as that which distinguishes living organisms
from dead ones, or from inanamate matter. Some of the characteristics
of life are: Organization of different cells for different functions;
Growth in both size and the complexity of its parts; Adaptation to
its external surroundings; Reproduction of additional organisms separate
from the original one; Homeostatis to regulate the organism for optimal
existence; Metabolism to convert external elements into energy and
matter to continue existence. These characteristics of life are particularly
salient in the birth of a child, so naming a new life with a word
that means life seems entirely proper and fitting.
There are many theories about the origin of life on Earth. Some are
religious in nature explaining the creation of life as due to some
god, though this explanation is incomplete as it doesn't explain where
the god gots its life. Others look to aliens beings as the source
of life on Earth, but again not addressing the question of where those
aliens got their life. Science weighs in with some mish-mash of theories
that posit an organic soup that gets zapped by electricity or such
and becomes life, voila. Anyhow, the whole thing is rather confusing.
People concerned with the origin of life, should get a life....
