Well, depends. To me, "pain" would seem to fall under Living. I mean,
a system like that would be bound to have words that could fall under
one or another and would just be arbitrarily chosen which one it would
fall under. Living could be defined as ONLY living things, and
Non-Living as ONLY non-living tangible things, and then concept would be
non-tangible nouns, like pain. Or, you could make it interesting and
have things like "fire" fall under Living.
