Dear ed, dear netters!

I agree with what you said in your posting (life is due to self directed
replication of nucleic acids), but why should this definition be re-
stricted to nucleic acids? What about self directed replication in
general (i.e. computer viruses are also alive in a similar sense)?

Greetings,

Denni
