"The current definition is that organisms are open systems that maintain homeostasis, are composed of cells, have a life cycle, undergo metabolism, can grow, adapt to their environment, respond to stimuli, reproduce and evolve." (Wikipedia)
Could McDonalds(or any other chain store) be considered a life form according to the current most accepted definition of Life? If not, what am i missing?
It evolves and changes over time; it reproduces by using excess Material to build new stores, it responds to outer stimuli by adapting to them; it grows to a point it is benefical; it starts to function sometime and will eventually stop; it autoregulates it self trying to maintain a stable state and it has a very complex metabolism
Thanks in advance
