The ancient Greeks studied more than philosophy in their debates. They studied the ways of nature - physics, astronomy, and chemistry. In those days the going opinion was that the world was flat, and the heavens were doing a dance at the whim of the gods, whoever they may be. They had no microscopes, no accelerators or centrifugal machines, and were incapable of separating chemicals to test out their theories. They did not even have a concept of subatomic particles. How could they, when matter was only falling into categories of solid, liquid, vapor, and spirit.

古希腊人在他们的辩论里不仅研究哲学。 他们研究自然 - 物理学,天文学和化学。 在那些日子里会认为是世界是平的,而上天则是神一时兴起的一个舞蹈。无论他们是谁 他们没有显微镜,没有加速器或离心机,并且无法分离化学物质,以测试他们的理论。 他们甚至没有亚原子粒子的概念。 当物质只落入固体,液体,蒸汽和精神类,他们怎么可能。

Yet one man, Democritus, hypothesized that matter had the same base component, and that these were tiny balls in clumps of few or many. Tiny balls that moved swiftly or stood still, and clung to each other or had a life of independence - molecules! How did the concept rise in one never exposed to even the concept of a solar system, orbiting planets around a central sun, much less the elements in the Atomic Table and their theoretical subatomic structure. Democritus was given to quiet times in his garden, where he pondered such simple wonders as rain drops and the ripples they caused in puddles. In essence, he gave The Call, and was heard by aliens who spent many hours with him, on repeated occasions, demonstrating how things work. Democritus would be returned to his garden, where his wife thought he had been all along, to sort this all out. Where the aliens answering his call may have found a ready student, Democritus was not so lucky with his fellow man, who ridiculed him for what they considered his preposterous positions.

然而一个人,德谟克利特,推测物质有相同的基本组成部分,并且这些是在几个或许多团块微小球体。 微小的球是快速移动或站定,并死死抓住对方或有独立的生活 - 分子!这个概念是如何在一个从未接触过太阳系的概念,围绕一个中心太阳运转的行星,更不用说在原子表和他们理论亚原子结构中的元素的人生起?德谟克利特是安静的在他的花园里,他在那里思考简单的奇迹,雨滴和他们引起的涟漪。 从本质上说,他给了呼唤,并给外星人响应到了,花了很多时间和他在一起,反复多次,展示东西是如何工作的。 德谟克利特会返回到他的花园,在那里他的妻子以为他一直一个人整理出这一切。 那回应他的外星人可能已经找到了一个现成的学生,德谟克利特就没有那么幸运,他的伙伴嘲笑他,他们认为他的立场荒谬。
