Really Made--The Only Solution--"2: 10 Trotter" Defined. 'HE main
thing which distinguishes the 1 organic world from the inorganic,
the live animal from the dead one, and the efficient man from the
inefficient, is energy and the potential at which it exists in the
different bodies. This same difference in the concentration of
energy distinguishes animals from plants, and the higher animals
from the lower ones. The amount of work which any animal can
perform represents its available energy, and availability depends
upon potential. Another distinction between the organic and the
inorganic is the extent to which we may practically extract and
make use of the available energy. With inorganic bodies we may
utilize the last particle of available energy which we can obtain,
but not so with organic bodies. With organisms we must leave behind
enough of the obtainable energy to keep the machine running,
otherwise the organism will die or become wrecked as a further
source of energy. A still further distinction is that organisms
automatically replenish their supply of available energy. They are
nature's machines for automatically storing energy in a form
available for the performance of work. In the organic world we find
bodies having forms of energy peculiar to themselves, which energy
acts to individualize the bodies with which it is associated. The
energy in these bodies continues, but the bodies themselves are a
combination of the periodic and the transient in...
