comment Why no 移民者【いみんしゃ】?
@DaveMG Oh yes, I actually just skimmed over the article and caricatured what I picked up... I actually asked a couple of my friends: "Do you know the word 移民者?" "Yes." "But it doesn't exist." "Oh, right." What I think this means is that people understand what should be meant by 移民者, but any careful thought would expose 移民者 as being redundant and silly and so nobody would consciously choose to use it, at least not as long as they don't recognize it as being a common word.

@KenY-N Don't rely on Google hits! Click yourself through to the last page to get a reasonable estimate. In this case, Google only has 22 results without repetition and 87 results, including repetition... which is why I used the corpus. (In the corpus 0 results for は移民です.)

comment The different meanings of “life”? 生気/生活/ライフ/生命/一生/人生/命
There are many more words that translate to life: 命{いのち}, 人生, ライフ, 生命, 一生, … If you're just trying to say "life", you have to be more precise and maybe give us a couple of example sentences. If you're really only interested in the difference between 生気 and 生活, then example sentences would still be very helpful.

10^4096? Maybe the Chinese wondered how many protons there would be in the universe, if in every proton there was a whole universe with the same number of protons, and in every one of those protons, there was a whole universe with that many protons, and in those protons there were again a whole universe, etc.
