What is machine? Are animals machines? If animals have no conscience, then are they merely biological mechanisms? Yet many indded are emotional, as observed by us humans. Can we relate emotions animals have to their higher understanding of surroundings and inner selves as compared to chairs, car, eletronic devices which are, to my understanding, mere combinations of emtionless elements?indeed* cars*

We need to understand what life is and we don't really know what it is. When I was in school the teachers said that viruses were not living, that they were minerals. And my native American friends tell me that stones live, that the ocean has a spirit. I have seen stones hundreds of millions of years old come alive when conditions favor; how it got here and why it's here are data beyond our understanding. Maybe you can know it all in the next world, but in this one we are limited because we don't have wings and we can't fly like birds.

You really need to do some studying before asking questions. You mix up words like conscience and emotions. They're not the same. You're making some very silly statements.
