the meaning of life

I was interested in the meaning of life, so rather than getting caught up in philosophical debates, I just went to the dictionary:

"The property or quality that distinguishes living organisms from dead organisms and inanimate matter, manifested in functions such as metabolism, growth, reproduction, response to stimuli, producing stimuli to seek a desired response, adaptation to the environment, and adaptation of the environment, originating with the organism."

From this definition, and my prior experiences with the UNIX operating system, I drew the following values, rules, and mottoes.

From "metabolism/growth":

From "reproduction / adaptation of the environment":

From "reciprocal stimulus/response":

From "adaptation to the environment":

From "originating with the organism":
