Description of Life

Life includes energy-consuming replicating entities that rely on nucleic acids to provide organizational information. Life is usually thought of as being cellular, includes prokaryotes (Archaebacteria and Eubacteria), plants, fungi, protists, and animals. Viruses are included as life forms. At this time, the hypothesis that life occurs uniquely on Earth remains unfalsified.
