In terminology, living organism is a defunct colloquial reference (see: defunct theory of life) to an organism in possession of the fictional property of "life" (see: life terminology upgrades).

The difficulty in using this term is that the idea of life or a “living structure”, when viewed from the molecular evolution table perspective, is a fictional construct that falls apart in definition as one descends down the evolutionary tree to the roots, which are comprised of hydrogen atom precursors, which are obviously not "living organisms". [1] In this sense, the conception of “induced movement organisms” becomes a more logical and correct perspective.
