No you are incorrect, dead means there is no functioning processes .<quoted text>
A "dead" fire is the absence of fire.
A dead star is the absence of what makes it a star ... light.
ALL you have proven is that those new terms simply say that it is NO LONGER a star.
Do you wish to continue this word mincing or are you mature enough to cede your point?
Live , does not require it to be in the visible spectrum of light.
It only require that there IS a process in progress.
