Yes, I kept looking at it, and feeling tired. Let's let it go now.

GG5 splits "activity" into 1) "然や生物が生き生きと動くこと"  and 2) "組織や人がある目的を持って活発に働くこと
daij and nikk don't split like this but instead have a pretty simple sense 1:
"①  活発に動いたり、働いたりすること。 「さかんに-する火山」 「夜間-する動物」 「組合-」"
"1 活発に動くこと。ある動きや働きをすること。「暖かくなって虫が活動し始めた」「活動範囲が広い」「火山活動」"
"① (━する) はたらき動くこと。活発に行動すること。
  Comments:
This was trickier than I thought. The GG5 sense split is maybe not all that helpful. The words listed are for the better 
part the same in both senses. I don't know if the extra info I added is really helpful, but it's an attempt to give the 
definition a little more context.

"huh
how does this work in a sentence, what is its role? Why is is relevant?"
  Comments:
This entry could probably be improved a lot with the help of GG5 (which has 3 senses)
