I once read an author who argued that the ring system of Saturn could be considered as a form of life. If I remember right, he pointed out the role of the "shepherd moons", and how the whole system seemed to stabilize itself. Much like life maintains itself against the tendendy towards thermodynamic equilibrium.

Isn't it all just a matter of definition?
