Hello, I have a question concerning life, evolution and most importantly - instincts. I understand the theory of evolution, however the one aspect that I do not understand is why do these collections of atoms that form molecules, etc, form a will to survive? I understand the biological side of life, however when it comes to instincts and such, how do we form those in the evolutioniary process? Why is it that life at the even most basic form, want to eat, survive, reproduce and form instincts? How does it know to perform these functions. While I know these are features only unique to life itself; how can lifeforms form these instincts?
