LIVING MATTER

Since at the subatomic level, all matter is basically similar, the fundamental chemical and physical principles are equally applicable to all objects in nature; yes two distinct types of objects are discernible everywhere the living and nonliving objects, The matter of the living objects organisms is a special type  of greyish, semitransparent and viscous fluid, named protoplasm by Purkinje 1840  and later by Hugo von Mohl (1861).

Chemically, the Protoplasm is so highly organized matter that it is capable of converting chemical energy into Energy of Life or Biological Energy That is why Max Schultze 1861 called it the "Physical Basis of Life".
