We have a word for mechanics compounded from matter, energy, space and time which is MEST. By MEST we mean any or all arrangements of energy of whatever kind, whether in fluid or object form, in space or spaces.
We do not conceive life to have an energy, and therefore, any energy, even if directly produced by life, can be found to be embraced under the quantitative term MEST.
Life itself has quality and ability. The products of quality and ability are mechanics. Ability is demonstrated by the handling of matter, energy, space and time. Quality means simply valued or having a value.
