Are the robots we create alive?

Common sense gives us an intuitive notion of life.

But let's say, if a robot like T-850 really existed, what would you say?

People also see difference between a fungus and a human, and the difference goes beyond their genomes. And there are also viruses.

That's why I cited 2 concepts, of negative entropy and consciousness. They all fit in the first, but not necessarily the second.
