There should be a universal definition of life.

Any entity that has the ability to store and exchange information autonomously.
Perhaps as we move through the next millenium we will need a definition of life that is this general. It may be needed to classify artificial life or to classify alien life. We may find life forms so different to ourselves that the only recognisable feature is information management. It might also help us to identify the point at which a person is no longer alive.

What the hell is up with the lack of complete sentences here?

I'm not sure if information management would count. How would you differentiate between AI or actual alien intelligence? And more importantly, is there a need for a distinction? Very interesting.

Uhhhh when their heart and/or brain gives out.
