The interesting thing about life is that it is the only thing in the universe that actively fights entropy. A cup that fell from a table and shattered into hundred pieces is not going to return to its state at the top of the table. Everything in the universe wants balance, but life doesn't. It keeps regenerating and by that, it keeps an unstable, unbalanced state. Death is when an organism loses that battle. But then other organisms come and use the remains of the dead to support their own fight.
