  life n. 1. A cellular-automata game invented by John Horton Conway and
     first introduced publicly by Martin Gardner ("Scientific American",
     October 1970); the game's popularity had to wait a few years for
     computers on which it could reasonably be played, as it's no fun to
     simulate the cells by hand. Many hackers pass through a stage of
     fascination with it, and hackers at various places contributed heavily
     to the mathematical analysis of this game (most notably Bill Gosper at
     MIT, who even implemented life in TECO!; see Gosperism). When a
     hacker mentions `life', he is much more likely to mean this game than
     the magazine, the breakfast cereal, or the human state of existence. 2.

Din dicționarul The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (27 SEP 03) :

  Life
       
           The first popular cellular automata based
          artificial life "game".  Life was invented by British
          mathematician John Horton Conway in 1970 and was first
          introduced publicly in "Scientific American" later that year.
       
          Conway first devised what he called "The Game of Life" and
          "ran" it using plates placed on floor tiles in his house.
          Because of he ran out of floor space and kept stepping on the
          plates, he later moved to doing it on paper or on a
          checkerboard, and then moved to running Life as a computer
          program on a PDP-7.  That first implementation of Life as a
          computer program was written by M. J. T. Guy and
          S. R. Bourne (the author of Unix's Bourne shell).
       
          Life uses a rectangular grid of binary (live or dead) cells
          each of which is updated at each step according to the
          previous state of its eight neighbours as follows: a live cell
          with less than two, or more than three, live neighbours dies.
          A dead cell with exactly three neighbours becomes alive.
          Other cells do not change.
       
          While the rules are fairly simple, the patterns that can arise
          are of a complexity resembling that of organic systems -- hence
          the name "Life".
       
          Many hackers pass through a stage of fascination with Life,
          and hackers at various places contributed heavily to the
          mathematical analysis of this game (most notably Bill Gosper
          at MIT, who even implemented Life in TECO!; see
          Gosperism).  When a hacker mentions "life", he is more
          likely to mean this game than the magazine, the breakfast
          cereal, the 1950s-era board game or the human state of
          existence.

  Life
     generally of physical life (Gen. 2:7; Luke 16:25, etc.); also
     used figuratively (1) for immortality (Heb. 7:16); (2) conduct
     or manner of life (Rom. 6:4); (3) spiritual life or salvation
     (John 3:16, 17, 18, 36); (4) eternal life (Matt. 19:16, 17; John
     3:15); of God and Christ as the absolute source and cause of all
     life (John 1:4; 5:26, 39; 11:25; 12:50).
     

Din dicționarul Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856) :

  LIFE. The aggregate of the animal functions which resist death. Bichat. 
       2. The state of animated beings, while they possess the power of 
  feeling and motion. It commences in contemplation of law generally as soon 
  as the infant is able to stir in the mother's womb; 1 Bl. Com. 129; 3 Inst. 
  50; Wood's Inst. 11; and ceases at death. Lawyers and legislators are not, 
  however, the best physiologists, and it may be justly suspected that in fact 
  life commences before the mother can perceive any motion of the foetus. 1 
  Beck's Med. Jur. 291. 
       3. For many purposes, however, life is considered as begun from the 
  moment of conception in ventre sa mere. Vide Foetus. But in order to acquire 
  and transfer civil rights the child must be born alive. Whether a child is 
  born alive, is to be ascertained from certain signs which are always 
  attendant upon life. The fact of the child's crying is the most certain. 
  There may be a certain motion in a new born infant which may last even for 
  hours, and yet there may not be complete life. It seems that in order to 
  commence life the child must be born with the ability to breathe, and must 
  actually have breathed. 1 Briand, Med. Leg. 1ere partie, c. 6, art. 1. 
       4. Life is presumed to continue at least till one hundred years. 9 
  Mart. Lo. R. 257 See Death; Survivorship. 
       5. Life is considered by the law of the utmost importance, and its most 
  anxious care is to protect it. 1 Bouv. Inst. n. 202-3. 
  
  

Din dicționarul THE DEVIL'S DICTIONARY ((C)1911 Released April 15 1993) :

  LIFE, n.  A spiritual pickle preserving the body from decay.  We live
  in daily apprehension of its loss; yet when lost it is not missed. 
  The question, "Is life worth living?" has been much discussed;
  particularly by those who think it is not, many of whom have written
  at great length in support of their view and by careful observance of
  the laws of health enjoyed for long terms of years the honors of
  successful controversy.
  
      "Life's not worth living, and that's the truth,"
      Carelessly caroled the golden youth.
      In manhood still he maintained that view
      And held it more strongly the older he grew.
      When kicked by a jackass at eighty-three,
      "Go fetch me a surgeon at once!" cried he.
