Dr. Christopher Langton, the principal researcher at Los Alamos National Life Laboratory in the United States, said: "Life’s essence lies not in its specific substance, but in its form". This means that LIFE’S essence has nothing to do with material, and it is just a form, a structure without material and a sign invisible to our naked eyes. Genes, the building blocks of LIFE, seen as the human genome with scientific instruments is actually not LIFE’s essence, but only the expression of a sealed book of LIFE. This is why people can make space ships, but not even make an ant.
It is not completely right to say that the essence of LIFE lies in its form because its form is just a rigid structure, but LIFE itself is moveable with spirituality and consciousness. Therefore, a LIFE is a nonmaterial structure with spirituality. At present, we must understand how these nonmaterial structures with spirituality come into being and how they are born. If LIVES are material structures, then all the things produced by people such as bicycles, clothes, desks, toothbrushes, pencils, and so on are also LIVES. Obviously, LIVES are absolutely not material structures, but nonmaterial structures, and therefore only those who understand the whole of non-material world can create them.
For humans, creating the nonmaterial structure is the hardest nut to crack, but for those who understand the nonmaterial world, it is just a piece of cake. The problem is that LIFE cannot be spiritual with only nonmaterial structures because they must possess spirituality; however, where can we get the spirituality?
For the masses, this is an easy question to answer; they will say, “It comes naturally” or “it originates from evolution”. If you ask further, “what is nature and how can it come naturally? LIFE is a nonmaterial structures with spirituality, but how do they evolve by themselves?” Those people, with shaking heads and angry eyes, would say: “Naturally means naturally, and evolution means to evolve step by step”. If you go on further, they will become very impatient and say that we are taking unnecessary pains to study an insoluble question.

Now, we have to ask the questions, “what is the universe and why does it exist?’. In Time and Space of the Universe, we learned that “The Universe exists as order and remains relatively stable with the total sum of negative and positive energy always equaling zero”. What is this order used for? If we ask what political order is for, what is the purpose of the legal and administrative order established by people, the answer must be that it is “a social order established with the aim of serving mankind”. Then, what is the order of the universe used for? I have discussed this very clearly in different sections of Chanyuan Corpus and Xuefeng Corpus, “The universe is designed to serve LIFE; if either perishes, then so will the other”.
Therefore, as long as the universe exists, LIFE will continue; this is a basic law.
Actually though, the thing that concerns us is not the survival or extinction of the macroscopic LIFE of the whole universe, but that of our individual LIVES; in other words, what we really care about is, “Am I going to die forever?”.
This involves such problems as the structure of the universe, the balance of LIFE, the morality of the universe, and others, so I have written some simple discussions about symmetry in, “Symmetry in Nature - Mysterious and Great Power and “the Golden Mean; Perfect Proportion”. We know that the core of order is symmetry; the universe is orderly, so the universe is symmetrical, and the “Taiji Diagram” is a vivid simile for this. We also understand that the universe is holographic - that one cell can reflect all styles and features. Therefore, we come to the conclusion that LIFE is symmetrical. This symmetry is not only reflected in that of certain individual LIVES, but in all LIVES in the universe.
From “36-Dimensional Space”, we can see that the Zero World, Heaven World, Elysium world, Cathode Black Hole Body, the Ten-thousand-year World, and the Thousand-year World are symmetric to the Inflamed Layer, Frozen Layer, Hell World, Plant World, Animal World, and Livestock World. The Mortal World is at the exact interface of these two symmetrical worlds. In this way, the symmetry of the whole universal LIVES is formed, namely the simplified overall structure of LIFE - heaven, the mortal world, and hell.
The universe has universal morality; once it is reflected in any individual LIFE, it represents the evolution of that LIFE—its transmigration and reincarnation; for example, if a person’s consciousness and thinking resonates on the same frequency as the morality of the universe, then their LIFE can evolve toward heaven - the Thousand-year World, Ten-thousand-year World, and the Elysium world, otherwise their LIFE will evolve toward Hell - the Hell World, Inflamed Layer or the Frozen Layer. Of course, this is just a general version; for a specific individual LIFE, the evolution of LIFE is much more complex.
