Dead and Alive

A living organism consists of dead matter. The particles from which it is composed do not know anything about life. You can view the living organism as a non-living physical system. That would be a viable description of it. So life is not some special form of matter, it is a layer of description. It can be viewed as being emulated by a non-living substrate.
