To quote J.D. Bernal (1959): “There is only one dominant chemical pattern of life. If more than one exists the others must be obscure, as are some of the red algae, and unnecessary to the survival of the dominant”, and “We may define life, for the sake of this discussion only, as the embodiment within a certain volume of self-maintaining chemical processes”. Others state (Miller and Horowitz, 1966): “An organism, to be called living, must be capable of both replication and mutation; such an organism will evolve into higher forms”.
