According to theories concerning the origin of life, the atom shown is a likely choice for the basic element of all livings things because it
is small and unstable.
is relatively stable and can form four covalent bonds.
forms four ionic bonds with other elements and itself.
is large and takes up enough space to fill the structure of a cell.

well the atom is small unlike what i drew but i would think the smaller the atom the easier it is to controll. I dont really know this part of biology was a little hards for me.
You know that the atom you drew has four bonds...& in chemistry you will learn that the number of bonds signify its stability....Also, for the function as biomolecule skeleton atom must be able to bind with multiple functional groups at once....
So, its a multitasking atom... :p
