|A diagram (Thims, 2016) of the Egyptian cosmological model of "chem" (or "keme"), the layer of black soil, in respect to crop or plant growth. |
The following table (Ѻ) shows the composition of average "soil" generally speaking, showing that soil tends to be comprised of 13 elements, an OSiAlNaKCa+7 element chemical substance or type of matter, crudely speaking:
which can be compared with "plants", which are solar-powered CHNOKCa+10 species, or "animals", which are solar+nutrient powered CHNOPS+ species, e.g. a human, as shown above, is a CHNOPS+16 species.
Biochemistry | Terminology issues
The term “biochemistry”, in the correct etymological sense of things, means: the study of "living chem", "living black soil", or "living OSiAlNaKCa+7 species", which becomes doubly-nonsensical, firstly that things like animals are not made of elements like aluminum, and secondly bio- is a defunct concept, physically, chemically, and thermodynamically.
Certainly, we can think of things, in the sense that when the flood waters receded, Egyptians, aka "Kemites", as they were originally called, started their crop season by planting seeds in the soil, during their month-long Egyptian Khoiak festival (Dec 10 to Jan 8), after which the combination of water, soil, and heat from the sun grew plants.
The following are related quotes:
“In coordination with these star [Sirius], flood, and sun rebirth patterns, these Egyptian thinkers also noted that a fertile black soil, called keme, pronounced ‘chem’, as in chem-istry, aka the ‘black art’, the term ‘keme’ spelled as the suffix -ham in Hebrew, as in Abra-ham (or Ebra-him in Islam), is left behind, i.e. deposited on the Nile banks, when the flood recedes, after which, via the action of sunlight (heat) and water (H2O), animate things, aka ‘life’, such as plants, e.g. wheat, and animals, e.g. mice, appeared seemingly to be ‘born out’ of this newly made black fertile soil.”— Libb Thims (2016), Smart Atheism: for Kids 
“Life is like chem; the goal's to be able / To bond well with others so we can be stable.”— Mala Radhakrishnan (2013), tweet, Atomic Romances, Aug 17
