Science is a great impact to all of us that explains and understand life and of the laws of nature and makes new dicoveries that will enlighten us to the nature of all phenomena everything that surrounds us. An idea of God which tend to think to dominate and apart from man give us no reason to answer of what is life itself. Life itself is the creator and it is the created as well. All things had do life. Life is everywhere. Life is nothing but more than a beautiful expressions we give. We see life on trees, animals, insects and other living beings. Humans is the most beutiful expressions of LIFe. There is no more of worthy of respect than human life itself. This is the teaching of Buddhism.
The oneness of bodies and mind are the workings and the expressions of life. Buddhism views a living being as the harmonious coming together of what are termed the "five components". These are: the physical aspects of life and the senses; perception, which integrates the impressions received through the senses; conception, by which we form ideas about what we have perceived; volition, the will that acts on conception; and consciousness, the function of discernment that supports the functioning of the other components. Life is the force or energy that keeps these five components functioning together as a harmonious and integrated whole.
Within the past year, the U.S. News and World Report and other magazines have featured articles on mind-body research. More and more, medical science is beginning to explore the subtle interconnections between body and mind, between the physical and spiritual aspects of life. Buddhism views both physical and spiritual aspects as vital manifestations of the life-force that is inherent in the cosmos itself. As Nichiren wrote:

"Life at each moment encompasses both body and spirit and both self and environment of all sentient beings in every condition of life, as well as insentient beings--plants, sky and earth, on down to the most minute particles of dust. Life at each moment permeates the universe and is revealed in all phenomena".
