These days, the final barrier is the origin
of life: The scientist goes about it in
time honored fashion: the tree of life
appears on a page, the seed is invisible.
The dilemma is this: whereas there are
pre-life forms, even amino acids in chains,
and life forms, marked by the ability
to multiply, the key to life is unresolved.
Science logically assumes life is based
in chemistry, but it could be said equally
chemistry is a manifestation of life,
in every entity that manifests a form.
Forms affect each other with a specific
contextual effect, and work towards synthesis
of identities made manifest as have their
origin in context, including those of life forms.
Thus life forms are no different to non-life
in terms of being contextual identities, and
indicate rather the life that is the context
in which all forms are realized as concepts.
