You all forgot that there is no need to "drive" chemistry - least potential energy works just fine. Ancient people who did not know that, were placing "conscious pilot" in the life's "driver seat" - they call him "vitalism". Name did not explain anything (same as saying: Santa, god, etc), but science did - and found no vitalism.

But vitalists (as well as believers in Santa Clause) are still alive.

After all, not all people are aware of mathematical principles we call natural laws.
