world without a living thing

Excerpt from the book The Meaning of It All by Richard P. Feynman

Can you conceive, can you appreciate or fit into your ideas what can be the meaning of a world without a living thing on it? We are so used to looking at the world from the point of view of living things that we cannot understand what it means not to be alive, and yet most of the time the world had nothing alive on it. And in most places in the universe today there probably is nothing alive. 

Well. Sigh. I had not even thought about it that way. Wonder why though?
