All living beings inherit the characteristics and behaviors of their parents. The off- spring of a fly looks and behaves like a fly, and that of a lion looks and behaves like a lion. But despite being similar to their parents, all offspring are also different and unique in their own ways. In addition, a single action may have different meanings for different beings. For example, the action “eat” has different meanings for a fly than a lion. A fly eats nectar, whereas a lion eats an antelope.
