Automatic

I placed 32 solar garden lights on a hill in the wilds of Edinburgh, leaving them there for seven days. This allowed the solar lights to break away from their set service attributes, becoming a simple automated system for absorbing and releasing energy.

If all energy for life on Earth comes from the Sun, can this independent, automated solar energy system be considered a form of life?

 

在爱丁堡野外的山上放置了32盏太阳能花园灯,将其安置在野外七天,令太阳能灯脱离被设定的服务属性,变成了一个单纯的吸收能量和释放能量的自动系统。

如果说所有地球生命体的能量来自太阳,那么这个有关太阳能的独立的自动系统是否可以被当作生命存在?
