Various issues concerning the nature of life will be discussed such as:

The origin of life - how might it have all begun from star dust; possibilities of life elsewhere than on earth; the general properties of all living matter; the processes and the nuts-and-bolts involved.

Emphasis will be on current thoughts on human life, in particular: how we may have evolved, why does aging of life occur, what are some "abnormal" (pathologies) that can occur, and finally where is human life heading.
