What is life?

This question keeps many people awake at night and has led to rafts of definitions, some involving features (procreation, metabolism and so forth), some involving chemistry, entropy or energy flux and some are of a more philosophical bent. A BBC article noted there are over 100 definitions of life and it claims all are wrong.

And indeed it does appear to be quite a challenge - every hard and fast rule is violated somewhere in biology. There are things that are clearly alive, but never replicate. Plants typically do not move yet are extremely vital. Viruses do make copies of themselves, but need a host to do so. Are they alive? And once you have it all figured out, some wise person comes up with a crystal that somehow manages to create copies of itself, and points out that these copies even ‘inherit’ characteristics. Is the crystal alive? Similarly, “fire” consumes elements, moves and even replicates. Yet calling fire

We must warn the reader about another semantic confusion which has caused error and controversy in probability theory for many decades. It would be quite wrong and misleading to call g(f) the ‘posterior distribution of f’, because that verbiage would imply to the unwary that f itself is varying and is ‘distributed’ in some way. This would be another form of the mind projection fallacy, confusing reality with a state of knowledge about reality. In the problem we are discussing, f is simply an unknown constant parameter; what is ‘distributed’ is not the parameter, but the probability. Use of the terminology ‘probability distribution for f’ will be followed, in order to emphasize this constantly.

Of course, nothing in probability theory forbids us to consider the possibility that f might vary with time or with circumstance; indeed, probability theory enables us to analyze that case fully, as we shall see later. But then we should recognize that we are considering a different problem than the one
