Why non living things grow?

Im not entirely sure what the question is, but non living things do grow. If we are talking in a biological sense, then your hair and nails grow, even though they are classed as dead tissue, because the tisuue at the tips of them (in the case of your hair, it would be your hair folicles) are growing, and therefore push more out. If we are talking in a geographical kind of sense, then things like mountains do ‘grow’. The himilayas for example are ‘growing’, its at a very slow rate, but it could be classed as growth as they are being pushed upwards due to the plate techtonics. Other ways in which things grow is in the physics sense, when you freeze water, it ‘grows’ bigger, hence the existance of things such as freeze thaw weathering.
