I don't think of my life as an object. It's a feature of mine a 'property' in the same way as 'dark hair' is. It's just a feature I've grown very fond of.

There are things I use during my existence and things I 'own'. My life is of a different quality of any of them and could continue (at least temporarily) without any of them.

Since carbon compunds include life itself, there van be no higher good than the protection of carbon compunds.

I don't think you're stringing together a coherent argument here.
