    okay, i was thinking of this today and we are essentially just elements in a living form. if we were taken apart atom by atom, all it would be is a pile of water and various other elements.

    Now i was thinking of this, and does that mean we are simply an evolution of elements?? think of it, all we are is a living form. under certain conditions is an evolution of elements to create life and expand it, and try and make it as advanced as possible to extend itself and expand.a

    is our elemental make-up each of those elements trying to manifest itself for a reason i don't understand. because think about it, life was created from nothing.. from heat, water electricity w.e. ect. it was created from basic elements which expanded into the creature. us humans are mostly water and so was our starting enviornment.

    does that mean water used cells to evolve and since we were always around water from an early stage, it has made us into mostly water creatures and made it a necessary element of our survival... I don't believe that on every planet you need water to live. i've heard plenty of times, there won't be many planets like earth and they will be extremely hard to find due to correct conditions needed.

    but i don't believe every planet will need water to sustain life.
    if i am correct and we are element evolution, life could grow anywhere, and use widely available liquid as its source of life. and evolve from that element

    Your'e on Earth now, no need to be eternal. Ask a question a day :wink:. There's plenty of time to have any question answered.

    you know... i was thinking that mabey when you add energy to elements. it allows the energy to combine with the element. and when it combines, it may become a organism. and thats how life is created

    You can see an example of this inside IC's and microprocessors. Set an intel chip on the table, and you can watch it do nothing for all of eternity. Pass electricity through it and it has the ability to drive all of our modern conveniences. 'Energy' (electricity in this case) is essential in driving all processes, not just life =)

    To further your point, it can be said that life is just a complicated conductive system. Living organisms are highly complex circuits, we're pretty useless without energy.

    I we were not made of living elements (atoms, quarks etc.) then we would not live I guess because we would be just like something without pureposeful energy. Maybe again we are just living "bottles of water" which evolved by combining with other elementary particles and formed a living and thinking man during millions of years of evolution.
