    Ants probably are the perfect fit in terms of symbolism.

      Each ant has a purpose in the hive. They live and die trying to fulfil that purpose. If anything it's the antithesis of nihilism as it's a purposeful life without the need for greater meaning.

    Get a slime mold. Its not a plant or an animal but something weird in between. Its intelligent and stupid at the same time which makes it fun to watch. Also my cats like the way it smells.

          "Life" is just a taxon.
          Things that didn't evolve from the universal common ancestor aren't "life"
          It's usage for autorreplicant machines is stupid and wildly biased

            So if we encountered space aliens that evolved completely independently from humans, having literally no common ancestors and being from a completely separate tree of life, you'd say we shouldn't qualify them as life but as something else?

              Yep, "life" is also very biased towards earth organisms.

              If it can't reproduce on it's own isn't life
              If it's not made of cells it isn't life

              Even already existing complex replicating organisms aren't alive just because of those technicalities.
              Viruses are the usually quoted example but an even stupider one is spermatozoa.

              They move on their own to reproduce and they generate their own food (technically the parent "preloads" food into it, kinda like queen ants) by expending the energy they've got in the previous generation, then they find an external reproduction enabler cell (egg) and enter a larval stage that needs about 13 years to be sexually mature, then, with the genetic material it got from the egg cell, it starts producing offspring.

              Even then, since to reproduce they need a different kind of cell neither egg cells nor sperm are alive.

              Who is to say aliens can't develop symbiotic reproduction instead like that?
              Maybe there are even some that require completely inert external chemical processes to reproduce, like a geological feature.

              Also why can't we create artificial metallic life? In the very next future(maybe now even) all conditions sans being made of cells can be fulfilled by a robot, even so, they're not alive

                But they can't reproduce without a different "species" of cell, therefore they aren't considered live creatures

                All I'm saying is that the term "alive" is nonsensical, you can claim fire has a lot things in common with the taxological family of life, and you'll be correct, but fire isn't a live creature either

      As pets you interact with, sure, as living art pieces or members of a tiny ecosystem inside you're home, they're pretty neat.

      No, you really can get much worse. Consider animals that barely move or barely count as animals. Think about the people that put snakes in drawers or have a 1 cubic foot box with black dirt in it that they have a pacman frog in, or the weirdos that keep sealed vivariums with nothing but springtails, rolly-pollies, and the occasional worm. Ant farms? Fish? Turtles? Lizards? They wander around, they act out, you feed them once a week or so, they have personalities even. Not so for the prior examples.

        Honestly vivariums seem kinda cool though. Not in the sense of pets but just managing your own ecosystem. Only having tiny bugs is a waste if you can have more though

          >As a pet?
          Yes, they are interesting fellas. People talk to plants you can talk to mushrooms to. They always look so stumpy and special ed' when they fruit. You can harvest all of the weirdos and start breeding operations of all the special ed' mushrooms and get some really weird abominations that you sort develop a fondness towards. Especially ones which have survived issues with cultivation and went on to become big and strong.

          Its essentially eugenics from the beauty of your living room but you can eat the super soldiers and go through an insane trip.
