SURVIVAL, 1. is a condition susceptible to non-survival. If one is “surviving,” one is at the same moment admitting that one can cease to survive, otherwise one would never strive to survive. (Scn 8-8008, p. 47) 2. survival might be defined as an impulse to persist through time, in space, as matter and energy. (Scn 8- 8008, p. 5) 3. survival is understood to be the basic single thrust of life through time and space, energy and matter. Survival is subdivided into eight dynamics. (SOS, p. x)
SURVIVAL GOAL, an optimum solution to existing problems. (DAB, Vol. II, p. 37, 1951-52)
SURVIVAL SUPPRESSOR, is the combined and variable threats to the survival of the race or organism. (DMSMH, p. 25)
SURVIVE, the dynamic principle of existence is survive. At the opposite end of the spectrum of existence is succumb. (SOS Gloss)
