What about the chemical atoms and laws, they are driven by ;)

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

both are present in transport systems in plants? Xylem is dead tissue whilst phloem is living?

So what is the answer in your opinion?

Don't you think, that living and non-living are composed from the same atoms? They don't have the same chemo-physical laws?

you can also talk about the molecules present in them

sometime back i had seen an NMR showing different molecule concentration.
you could talk about diff in water amounts

I agree with Jackbean on this one. Both dead (or non-living) and living things are made of atoms and molecules (matter), and are under the same rules of physics.
