Creation of life

When a child is born new life is created, or so they say. But in fact only a new identity is created. Life was already there.

Life exists in within each cell and it's the sum of our cells that form our person. Cells divide to multiply the life within them and with each division life expands.

But with conception it's the other way around. Two cells are joined and with that union the two strands of life that they contain are fused, to form something new.

So a child is in fact it's father and it's mother combined into one and with that, life continues. No start, no end.
