a temporary state. some make the most of it, some barely get through it, some do pretty good etc.. it's considered a gift from God, and in my opinion it is.

i think life has a deeper meaning however. check this, an eternity of life would be found in heaven and an eternity of death would be found in hell. so there must be another meaning apart from just having a pulse, lol or maintaining homeostasis.. cause umm.. plants don't have pulses.

according to the bible, life is a tree and death is a tree. however, the fruits of both are completely different.

'And out of the ground the LORD God made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.'
Genesis 2:9
'And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, "You may freely eat of every tree of the garden; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall die."'
Genesis 2:16

i think this occurs in our human life. we plant seeds all the time, and trees grow with all different fruit(results.. like planting a seed of not studying for tests will grow a tree of failure.) it's like we all have a our own garden, and some people have a big apple tree that they let everyone close to them eat from. this person is a tree of life.
read the bible, even if u don't believe in God. it's a great book to read, and apply to your life.

The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A death! What's that, a bonus?!? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. The you go live in an old age home. You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension, then, when you start work, you get a gold watch on your first day. You work forty years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement. You drink alcohol, you party, and you get ready for High School. You go to primary school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little boy(girl), you go back, you spend your last 9 months floating with luxuries like central heating, spa, room service on tap, then you finish off as an orgasm!!
Uff... Now that's what life should be!!
