Product Description

For the past 3,000 years, humans have wondered about the make-up of the universe. In about 440BC, Empedocles, a Greek philosopher, proposed that everything was made from four elements: water, earth, fire and air. He got the idea from observing wood burning on a fire. He noticed the ashes were like the earth. He concluded that fire changed everything into the basic elements. The idea that the universe was made from four elements spread around the world. Hindus and Buddhists added a fifth element - ether, the space around us.
