Just an idea mulled over - the nuances of a repeating physical cycle of a device that, accumulating energy and various chemicals, duplicates itself. One which can carry mutations to it's structure - I think it's pretty clear it can exist. Were alive, after all.

So is life essentially part of the physics of the universe? Not just subject to, say, gravity, but as much as gravity goes on and on and on, so does the cycle of life. Is that cycle not as present as gravity?

"But life can end"

Yes, so that's where I get my title - is life a sort of second class citizen to physics? A wannabe physics? Almost having made it to being the actual fabric of the universe, but kinda not quite made it there?
