atoms are the true building blocks of the universe. everything that has matter is an atom. however, if that is so, if we have sentient life, why dont atoms? i believe that our thoughts are no more deliberate electrical signals than we are truly alive. they could be coincidental electrons passing from one group of atoms to another. i look at the universe this way: we are simply atoms that are assembled in a way that gives us "conscious" thought, while we are in reallity simply the result of conditions being right for something happening, like us. sorry if this isnt really clear, but what im trying to say is, we are nothing but atoms resembling what those atoms believe are "life".

@hamilton,
What do you mean by Life?
When you answer this question you will have answered the header.

I think your posting is confused, atoms don't think.
Th evidence of thinking only comes about when atoms are organised in very specific and complicated ways.

@hamilton,
I would say that clearly life exists, its just that not all definitions of life are correct.

@Dirt,
You must have a correct definition as you state that, 'clearly life exists'. What is your correct definition?

@hamilton,
In order to ask such silly selfexplanatory question, you must be in a state of psychosis.

@hamilton,
Thats a good question and you explained it well. That is too complicated to answer and when i face this kinds of questions I stop and become quiet and just wondering how mysterious it (life) is.
