    Its the way nature is!
    If you dont like it, go somewhere else....
    To another universe, where the rules are simpler
    Philosophically more pleasing, more psychologically easy

    No one knows. Due to the properties of Emergence, it's highly likely that self producing and reproducing organic compounds/molecules clustered together in symbiotic systems, that eventually grew into higher life, such as bacteria.

    One of David Attenborough's series dealt with the evolution of early organisms really, really well. Not much help I'm afraid, I can't remember which series.

    Could it be First Life? I don't really remember, either...

    Certain chemicals came together in the worlds oceans to form complex molecules and protein strings, these then gave rise to the first single celled organisms, which then became multicelled, but eventually it got to a point in evolution where it became more practical for organisms to be able to move of their own valition i.e. to get to where the food was ect.., this in turn quickly led to more complex organisms capable of ingesting food, as movement requires lots of energy. But answer your question it was just down to the practicalities of evolution, just like things had been getting more complex so movement was an eventual and natural product of this new growing complexity.

    But that obviously didn't happen here on earth otherwise we wouldn't be around now to discuss it.

    I took animated to mean mobile. That seems to happen in single celled life pretty early...perhaps in the first billion years.

    They found that in space salt tends to clump

    As part of the Water Observations demonstrations these clumps of 1- to 6-mm salt (Sodium Chloride or NaCl) particles in air were formed on ISS Expedition 6.

    But one truly remarkable quality that must have emerged very early is the sense of touch. Even single celled oganisms will react when stimulated.
    It is of course a survival skill, but this indicates a neural network very early on in the evolution of life. Perhaps this also addresses the question of "animation" (the ability and motivation to move).

    @marnixR: By animated life we meant self propelled life.

    @Write4u: We liked your explanation the best so far.

    @Neverfly: It is David Attenburgh's, 'First Life'.

    Heres the link

    And Thank you everybody for your responses

    Keep teaching your 8 year old nephew. Help him grow up to be a thinker. The world needs more of them.

    I keep hearing "" in the syrups of Primeavil Oceans the Elements ( molecules, bacteria, carbon, calcium,etc) were mixed, and LO; a spontanious re-action led to the emergence of what was later recognised as the beginning of assembled living matter.

    I personally do not believe a word of it.

    I was on a lonely beach during a holiday break recently. No matter how hard I looked, I saw no new Life Forms crawling up the Beach from the Ocean.

    No. My personal belief, as I have stated before, that the elements of Specie and Fauna arrived on this Planet from Space Repositories. ie; Other Celestial Bodies.

    Fertile environment for successful propagation of Life.

    In the Goldilocks Zone.

    Now, did the Life Giving Matter come by Comet? Some maybe.

    Were they deposited here by Aliens? Possible. Time and Distance and Galaxy Positional Movements reaching back 2/3 Billion years may have favoured this.

    Created? As per some Religious beliefs? No. Some arguement that in the very beginning, somewhere, long before the Milky Way Galaxy came into being, there may have been a Creational Input.

    Why has developement of new living things ground to a halt 380 Million years ago.?

    Your say. westwind.

    Why does it have to be one or the other? I maintain that complexity in a dynamic system is inevitable. Your question about events in the far past are not new. We know that our atoms were formed during the great Nova events, across the entire universe.
    Is it wonder that it would take a long time for certain ingredients to meet and interact. IMO, it is entirely reasonable to assert "life was an inevitable result of the composition and functions of the universe"

    Well, let's bring this one into 2013.

    Animation/ animated just means motion. The first non-anchored life that had motion were plankton in the ocean, whereby its animation was based upon the ocean currents. Such life was like a leaf in the wind. Some evolved the mechanism of photo-tropism, turning toward the light, and others developed other orientation mechanisms to take advantage of their environment and changing conditions. Later microscopic single celled animals evolved a slow crawling motion like amoebas, or cilia motion like parameciums. Some plant life with chlorophyll evolved flagella like Euglenas along with some single celled animal life, for more rapid movement.

    Then there were one celled animals that consumed plant life, then both animal and plant life, which needed motion like swimming and crawling to capture food. Next muti-celled plants and animals evolved locamotion that could enable them to eat both plants and animals. Animation has become primarily an animal thing, while most plants usually stay in the same place via rooting and cannot readily change their environment. Most of their animation simply relates to wind conditions.
