Edgar Cayce quote as to what Life is.

That is, in reference to the title of this thread, as to Life in a mundane sense. That is to say what Life owes its physical existence to.

From Edgar Cayce reading 440-20

"For Life is and its manifestations in matter ARE of an ELECTRONIC energy" [capitalizations are as verbatim from the recorded readings]

I only learned of this reading this afternoon and I find it to be most validating of my own research and findings in that...
Aries is considered by many to be the first Sign among the 12 Signs of Astrology...and it is, in the mundane sense... and physical life is of the realm of the mundane. Aries is one of the three Fire Signs and it represents, it rules over, electrical fire.
Also, because the Sabian Symbol for the first degree of Aries is, according to Dane Rudhyar and his book "An Astrological Mandala"

"ARIES 1: A WOMAN JUST RISEN FROM THE SEA. A SEAL IS EMBRACING HER.

KEYNOTE:
Emergence of new forms and of the potentiality of consciousness.


This is the first of the 360 phases of a universal and multilevel cyclic process which aims at the actualization of a particular set of potentialities. These potentialities, in the Sabian symbols, refer to the development of man's individualized consciousness the consciousness of being an individual person with a place and function (a 'destiny') in the planetary organism of the Earth, and in a particular type of human society and culture.

To be individually conscious means to emerge out of the sea of generic and collective consciousness which to the emerged mind appears to be unconsciousness. Such an emergence is the primary event. It is the result of some basic action: a leaving behind, an emerging from a womb or matrix, here symbolized by the sea.

Such an action is not to be considered a powerful, positive statement of individual being. In the beginning is the Act; but it is often an imperceptible, insecure act. The small tender germ out of the seed does not loudly proclaim its existence. It has to pierce through the crust of the soil still covered with the remains of the past. It is all potentiality and a minimum of actual presence.

In the symbol, therefore, the emergent entity is a Woman; symbolically speaking, a form of existence still close to the unconscious depths of generic biological nature, filled with the desire to be rather than self-assertion. The woman is seen embraced by a seal because the seal is a mammal which once had experienced a biological, evolutionary but relatively unconscious emergence, yet which retraced its steps and 'returned to the womb' of the sea. The seal, therefore, represents a regressive step. It embraces the Woman who has emerged, because every emergent process at first is susceptible to failure. This process is indeed surrounded by the memory, the ghosts of past failures during previous cycles. The impulse upward is held back by regressive fear or insecurity; the issue of the conflict depends on the relative strength of the future-ward and the past-ward forces.

The possibility of success and that of failure is implied throughout the entire process of actualization. Every release of potentiality contains this two-fold possibility. It inevitably opens up two paths: one leads to 'perfection' in consciousness, the other to 'disintegration' - the return to the undifferentiated state (the state of humus, manure, cosmic dust - i.e. to the symbolic 'great Waters of space', to chaos)

This symbol characterizes the first of five stages which are repeated at three levels. This stage represents the initial statement, or theme, of the five-fold series which refers to the first level:
IMPULSE TO BE."
