. Renewal of Life by Transmission. The most notable distinction betweenliving and inanimate things is that the former maintain themselves byrenewal. A stone when struck resists. If its resistance is greater thanthe force of the blow struck, it remains outwardly unchanged. Otherwise,it is shattered into smaller bits. Never does the stone attempt to reactin such a way that it may maintain itself against the blow, much less soas to render the blow a contributing factor to its own continued action.While the living thing may easily be crushed by superior force, it nonethe less tries to turn the energies which act upon it into means of itsown further existence. If it cannot do so, it does not just split intosmaller pieces (at least in the higher forms of life), but loses itsidentity as a living thing.As long as it endures, it struggles to use surrounding energies in itsown behalf. It uses light, air, moisture, and the material of soil. Tosay that it uses them is to say that it turns them into means of its ownconservation. As long as it is growing, the energy it expends in thusturning the environment to account is more than compensated for bythe return it gets: it grows. Understanding the word "control" in thissense, it may be said that a living being is one that subjugatesand controls for its own continued activity the energies that wouldotherwise use it up. Life is a self-renewing process through action uponthe environment.
