Why did the first cell divide? How could it have programmed itself to do that?

Why does ice form hexagonal crystals, and how did it program itself to do that?

Why would the first cell divide, why didn't it just live its life and then die?

It is entirely possible that the first cell did just that. It lived it's life and died leaving no descendants. If you think about it for just a few seconds I think the answer to this questions should be very obvious. Why is it that we only see the descendants of dividing cells in today's world?
