What is Life?

“Thus the device by which an organism maintains itself stationary at a fairly high level of orderliness ( = fairly low level of entropy) really consists in continually sucking orderliness from its environment.”
—Schrödinger, What is Life? (1944)

Life consists of sucking information out of the environment.

Think about that. And think about what drives human behavior.
