Life here means the organizing principles that are creating all forms of life. And all forms of life are organisms and they obey universals.nbsp; These principles obey very different kinds of logic than that known in scientific materialism of physics.nbsp; To understand life, a new foundation of metaphysics with matching logic is required. Towards that end I bring into question scientific materialism and advance considerations for the foundations of a new science for life in which life and values are fundamental and life is creative organisms.
