Non living vs. Living matter

As is clear from above   account the energy of matter resides in its chemical organization. The total potential chemical energy, entrapped as bonds between its atoms in a chemical system is a chemical system is called the enthalpy of the system in terms of heat per unit mass of the system .An inactive chemical system, like a stone has a constant chemical organization and enthalpy and hence, continues existing as such unless  disorganized by some external for cerci a chemical system is active chemical reactions are taking place in it, the energy inessentials eying converted either from potential to kinetic and vice versa or from chemical potential to some other form. According to the second Law of thermodynamics, some energy is lost as dissipated heat in each energy conversion. This loss of energy is called entropy it diminishes the enthalpy and organization of the system in  it Obviously. Continuing entropy gradually causes complete loss of organization, i.e. disintegration of the system. For instance when the wax of an ignited candle burns with the help of atmospheric oxygen, it is completely disorganized into carbon monoxide gas, releasing energy which gives light  Conversely, if an active chemical system is capable o obtaining matter from its environment and utilizing the energy of this matter to make good  its energy loss or entropy, it shall establish an equilibrium  and survive, Such a chemical system is called an open system Centrality an actives system which cannot restore its energy loss from environment and hence becomes disorganized like the wax of a candle is a closed system ,The living matter protoplasm is not only the most highly organized and most compiles, but also the most actives chemical system of Nature with maximum its organization by continuously obtaining chemical energy from its environment in the form of matter find or in other words, by increasing the entropy of the environment No nonliving chemical system howsoever active it may via can thus recap its energy loss from the environment, and that is the big  difference between the living and nonliving matter upon our earth.
