Scientific wealth building secrets! - #2 - Life
This is a series of articles about studying general scientific ideas to create a wealth building system that works according to the laws of the Universe. These concepts come from observing our environment. Scientists have discovered that the laws of nature follow certain patterns. Some physical laws seem to be present everywhere, from the tiny atoms to the enormous stars. Everything on the physical realm tend to be influenced by these laws, therefore they can be applied to your businesses too as you will see in just a few minutes. The whole series contain the following articles .

Most living organisms possess certain similar characteristics. By understanding these qualities you can be more successful. Let’s start by defining the purpose of life. Is there any specific purpose or reason to be alive. Many people feel that their life is meaningless.
They think the endless cycle of life is pointless. We wake up everyday and go to work, so we can get money, so we can buy food, so we can raise kids, so they can grow up and go to work, so they can have money, so they can buy food, so they . to infinitum. Is there any specific reason behind this routine? What is the ultimate purpose of being alive? Let’s examine the life cycle of living organisms and let’s arrive to a conclusion. Living things possess the following qualities . 1.
Organization - They are comprised of one or more cells. 2. Metabolism - This is the process through which they create energy. Living things are complex systems which need energy to maintain internal organization. 3. Growth - They increase in size over time in all of their parts simultaneously. 4. Adaptation - They adapt to their environment. This process is fundamental for evolution. 5.
Response to stimuli - They respond in many different ways to the stimuli from their environment. 6. Reproduction - This process refer to both the division of the cells in organismal growth as well as the production of a new individual. This alone tells us nothing, but if we analyze the behavior of most living things we arrive to the conclusion that they have something in common. They add value! Yes, you heard that right. Organisms add value, to their own life, the environment (Earth/ecosystem) and the life of others. The reason we perceive that some living things subtract value (kill and eat other organisms) is that we don’t live in a perfect ecosystem. I believe though that most living things add more value than they subtract from the environment, otherwise the ecosystem we live in wouldn’t be able to sustain itself. Now, think about it.
