Some end up as superstitions! Aliveness The question I am interested in about life is this: what does science explain about life and what if anything comes into the category of escaping the scientific analysis as we known it? An example of the latter is the problem of aliveness. In chapter 2 I indicate the extent to which science helps us here. For the moment I want to outline some of the issues that have not yielded to scientific analysis but yet are not in the category of the completely unknowable.

In Act 1 he says: What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason!  . in action how like an angel! in apprehension how like a God! the beauty of the world! the paragon of animals! And yet to me, what is this quintessence of dust?  O God! How weary, stale, flat, and unprofitable Seem to me all the uses of this world. Biologist Lewis Wolpert (1999) wrote a book on his severe depression and recovery.  They became stone.

Bookshops are full of 'how to feel good' books on 'self-help'. Lots of people must be buying them, judging from any list of bestsellers in each week's New York Times Book Review. This gives point to the Chinese proverb: 'People in the West are always getting ready to live'. My second proposition is that our own existence and experience of aliveness provides the clue to understanding the nature of life of other living creatures. After exploring the meaning of aliveness in human life I explore its meaning in non-humans from this human perspective.
