ORGANIC MATTER AND ORGANIZED MATTER

It is of general knowledge that vegetable and/or animal substances, once dead and sometimes partially dead, or even alive (as it happens with many plants), constitute what we call Organic Matter.

The elements that constitute organic matter wich can be decomposed, normally have no more active life, and when this still exists, is in a final stage, as it happens with many plants.

Even after beeing separated from its roots, they mantain a residual life, likewise with animal bones, wich mantain partial life during very long periods.

We adopted the new term Organized Matter, to define organic matter, or organo-mineral matter and even mineral matter, ordered in such a way as to be able to assume life.

So, we can have Organized Matter imediatly  before an ordered mass of chemical compounds assume shelf life, and so, become a "live being".

We have Organized Matter too, imediatly after that ordered mass of chemicals, looses shelf life.

After life is extinguished, organized matter can stil be mantained during very short periods, after wich it becomes simply organic matter, which can be bio-decomposed.

We must remember that though this last complex of chemical composts is called organic matter, that does not mean it is solely composed of organic compounds.

In its constitution there are inorganic compounds like water, as well as unitary chemical elements, like Oxygen and Hydrogen.

In addition to these, there are organo-inorganic or organo-mineral compounds, like Sodium Citrate, an organo-mineral salt, derived from Citric Acid, an organic acid, and Sodium, wich is an inorganic or mineral element.
