I've been very curious about Life for my whole life. I'm 45 years old. There have been a lot of theories about life, ranging from religion to accepted, and unaccepted, science.
When I look at our world, I see a chain of life, and I don't see a difference between organic and inorganic matter. Eventually, when you trickle down anything biotic, eventually it becomes chemicals that are not self-propigating.
If you think about autotrophs and heterotrophs, Life makes sense, and in a certain sense, you can say that even organic matter (Life) is inorganic (evolution-wise).
When I wake up every day, and walk down the street, and see a rock, I don't think how different it is from me, I think about how much we have in common.
I guess my question is, is it insane to see inorganic and organic matter as being 2 modes of merely being?
Why do we make the distinction of organic vs. inorganic? Its all one big system.
