‘physical entities that have biological processes and can reproduce’, or a person, animal or plant that has a spirit, a metaphysical energy that is its ‘life-force’. n this site the spiritual aspects are emphasized, such as “the force that makes or keeps something alive”, “animation; liveliness; spirit” or “state, existence, or principle of existence conceived of as belonging to the soul”. It is still a challenge for scientists and philosophers to define life. Life is a process, not a substance. We all know that life as is worth living is quite different to being on life-support. The joy of life is based on choice, creativity, intuition and interaction.
Definitions of evil vary, as does the analysis of its motives. Evil can be:
Personal immoral actions or thoughts (though it is not common to relate the word evil to transient thought, rather it is a malignant intent to harm)
Impersonal natural evil (as in the case of natural disasters or illnesses)
A persona of demonic or supernatural/eternal power (See Also: Devil)
Elements that are commonly associated with personal forms of evil involve unbalanced behavior involving anger, revenge, fear, hatred, psychological trauma, expediency, selfishness, ignorance, or neglect.
