Do you consider a virus as being alive?
Because they do not produce their own ATP.

I'm not
sure.

You can read the full paper here.

Just published in September 2015. I am not saying this is the end all to the question but food for thought.

But it's not alive by your definition, correct?

Correct. Apparently AOkid has predetermined that his/her definition is unequivocal and any dissenting comments that show how lacking the definition is will be hand waved away.

Re: Black White or Grey?
Dude your definition sucks balls. You are trolling.

You have no viable definition. No one agrees with you.

You painted yourself into a corner and reality/life refuses to be painted into a corner.

Time to admit that your definition is superfluous .
