in terms of a state of matter it's actually not a viscous organic liquid. you are thinking of when they draw plasma from your body at the hospital. plasma doesnt exist around here, only out in space where stars and such are being born.

The term is overloaded. In the biology group and hence the biologic context, @exuras is absolutely right - "viscous organic fluid." In the physics group and hence the physics context, it is high energy matter which is out there around stars and other high energy objects.
