Although in mundane life there is a value in making the distinction between the living and the dead, in broader terms these are but two colors in the wide spectrum of universal existence. If you look at yourself right now, the terms dead and alive as we know them begin to fail. Isn’t the outer layer of your skin dead? Your hair, your nails, the enamel on your teeth, much of your bones, and many other parts of you could be called dead. You would be in a sad state without them because they serve a function in that aggregation that you call yourself. Using the word inert does little to resolve the matter as well.
