Specificity of the living being and the necessity to refer to a model of study.
It is possible to classify different school ways of constructing an experimental relationship to living beings, that we have to put in relation with different functions, as we have discussed in part 1.
On the one hand, pupils and students (but specially children) through their own experiences to living beings (such as caring animals and plants, as visiting farms and zoos) may discern new feelings, ask new questions about life on earth, its complexity, its precarious stability, and the reasons why they have to respect it.

The five-sensed living beings (human beings, cow, lions, fish, birds, reptiles, heavenly beings, hellish beings, etc.) are divided into two groups: (1) The asamjni (without mind) living beings whose minds are not developed and (2) The samjni (with mind) living beings whose minds are developed.

 BOOK OF FUNDAMENTALS: THE SO-CALLED 'INTRINSIC VALUE' OR 'SANCTITY OF LIFE' _______
Taken literally, the traditional principle of life states that (being a) living (being) is 'intrinsically' valuable, whereas (being a) nonliving (being) is not.
On the other hand, if nonliving beings have a value too according to the hidden principle with which different types of living beings are compared, then the principle of life is, perhaps, not superfluous, but the theory it is meant to support is in that case pitifully deprived of all practical significance.
And again, should the 'ultimate lifer' object that fetuses and conscious, adult beings and permanently comatose beings are all of intrinsic worth but of a different intrinsic worth, 'e employs another principle, a principle which either makes the principle of life superfluous or entirely vitiates it.

 BOOK OF FUNDAMENTALS: THE LIVES OF HAPPINESS-CATENAL BEINGS ______________________
The crucial question which then arises is whether living beings could be catenal with respect to a situational improvement catena without being catenal with respect to the happiness catena.
In the event that there are living beings which are catenal in a situational sense, but which have no happiness-catenality amelioration, it is much harder to justify a difference in treatment between beings which are happiness-catenal and beings which are not.
The minor, direct effect is the fear and pain involved in killing, the major one the loss of future happiness the sentient being killed would otherwise have had (especially when this future happiness should compensate 'im for the short-term pleasures 'e has forgone in the past as part of an overall life plan).

 Living beings and freedom
The previous concept of Life and, consequently, of living beings can be interesting in a personal context but it is not relevant in of itself for the exposition of the General Theory of the Conditional Evolution of Life in its scientific aspect, not even for its proof.
A more literal example, as far as evolution and characteristics of living beings, is that we humans cannot perceive suffering or negative feelings from the plants when they die, and it is assumed that they don’t like anything, like all living beings that have pride.
From a scientific or philosophical point of view, the human being is one more being with special or specific traits, but with the same general characteristics of living beings and intrinsic to Life.

But a body less noble than the heaven, is adorned with living beings, with fish, birds, and the beasts of the field.
The Platonists explain the union of soul and body in the same way, as a contact of a moving power with the object moved, and since Plato holds the heavenly bodies to be living beings, this means nothing else but that substances of spiritual nature are united to them, and act as their moving power.
A proof that the heavenly bodies are moved by the direct influence and contact of some spiritual substance, and not, like bodies of specific gravity, by nature, lies in the fact that whereas nature moves to one fixed end which having attained, it rests; this does not appear in the movement of heavenly bodies.

 Time and Living Beings
The living beings started off from something, that is, from matter that had been produced in an asymmetry of the Universe.
