The universe energy is somehow polarized into units of physical manifestation (Quantum
Physics). In some bodies of thought, the individual polarizing unit of universe
energy is labeled the consciousness. Regardless of the name which is attached to
this polarizing energy, it is the source of the energy utilized to express the "automatic
sequence of life" (Guyton’s Textbook of Medical Physiology). Life, therefore, is
expressing the energy of the Universe in form.
“The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition, 2001:”
"Although there is no universal agreement as to a definition of life, its biological
manifestations are generally considered to be organization, metabolism, growth, irritability,
adaptation, and reproduction. Protozoa perform, in a single cell, the same life functions
as those carried on by the complex tissues and organs of humans and other highly
Quantum Physics has shown that all matter is of the same energy (Zero Point Field).
The difference between the physical manifestation of one form of matter from another
form of matter is the energy vibration frequency.
As an example, the vibration frequency of a rock's energy is much slower than the
vibration frequency of a flower's energy, yet ultimately they are of the same energy.
