living energy
A general diagram showing that "living energy", on the left, is a anthropism-like theology-rooted term, where as "Gibbs energy", in the right, is the modern correct view of what constitutes the "energy" of a moving walking talking chemically-synthesized human (see: human free energy of formation).
In terminology, living energy, or "life energy", is defunct term (see: defunct theory of life), often seen in new age circles, who may employ terms such as: vitalism, living force, elan vital, etc., or as seen in scientific circles, who will unknowingly employ life-energy like terms such as "energy life" (Howard T. Odum, 1976), or seemingly secular terms such as: living beings, living systems, living matter, or living organisms.

In 1999, American scientist Gary Schwartz and Linda Russek, in their The Living Energy Universe, append a section on the second law of thermodynamics in terms of the Humpty Dumpty paradox, arguing that science has never been able to explain how Humpty Dumpty was build in the first place based on random events. [1]

In 2006 American consultant Marguerite Callaway, employs the term living energy in business chemistry theory. [2]

The term ‘living energy’, for the most part, seems to capture an attempt to reconcile or blend spirituality and residual religious ideas in with science, as in “spiritual energy”. [3]
