Why cells are present only in living organisms?

A cell is the basic building block of an organism. It contains various sub-cellular organelles performing various functions required for the growth and survival of an organism. Hence, according to the cell theory, all living organisms are made up of one or more cells. Viruses are the only living organisms that do not have cells.

Non-living things do not need any such processes as they do not grow, or reproduce.
