Sorry but I do not agree, these building blocks are lifeless, It is the entire organism that is alive, take the calcium of my body, it is needed for
me to be alive but it is not life itself, calcium cannot reproduces itself or evolve due to changes in its environement.
Also, A state of being does not equal a state of life. An atom of hydrogen is, but is not alive.

For something to exist, It does not have to be alive. For something to be alive it has to be alive or it goes back to being. Just like our atoms will
go form other inanimate structures when we die or maybe go into the production of a new plant, crocodile or human. The atom is not alive but will
exist untill it eventually decays.
