I define life as motion bound by intelligence and/or intelligent functioning. And everything represents motion. Therefore all that can be shown to exist, represents life.

I think you're confusing Wellbutrin with blotter. Easy mistake to make Big Grin

Seriously, it looks like a smiley face on an anti-depressant.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

My best guess is:

Psycho Meds: Wellbutrin, Trazadone, Seroquel, Lexapro
Diabetes Meds: Metformin, Januvia, Invokana
AntiNausea Meds: Zofran, Meclizine

At least that's what I take. Big Grin

I miss seroquel. Sad

... that doesn't follow.

Your hidden premise here is that all motion* constitutes or requires intelligence. You're going to have to do some work to justify that one.
(notwithstanding that you've either just declared non-intelligent life to not be alive, or else you've declared yeast to be intelligent; either would be problematic)

*motion is not a coherently defined physical term. Perhaps you mean interaction, which is.

... this is my signature!

Never seen that before. But I'm on the generic Bupropion. Smiley face is probably trademarked.

It doesn't speak to organic life as exclusive. Yes, all motion is subject to intelligent principles that regulate and define it, thus, all that moves, is intelligent. All that exists, moves. All that exists is intelligent.

Hahahahahahahahah. And this guy's totally ridiculous. He's sitting on the edge of a bathmat and actually thinks he's levitating. Hahahaha. You can tighten your butt cheeks and lift your knees and it looks like you're levitating. It's not levitating but it's a great butt exercise though.

So, basically, your definitions of "life", "motion", and "intelligent" are all so broad and so at odds with conventional usage as to be worthless.
