The Law of the Universal Functions of Matter and the Void
Published: August 30, 2010

Everywhere in the universe there is matter and void. Matter is anything that takes up (or occupies) space, has mass, and reacts to gravity. As, the original and true Atomic theory of matter and the void explains, “It is the function of matter everywhere to press everything composed of it downwards upon the void, while it is the function of the void on the other hand to remain weightless and provide a place in which matter can move and do things.”1 I call this “the law of the universal function of matter and void.”

Void is pure empty space or nothingness. It’s the opposite of matter. It separates matter from matter and gives matter a place in which to move and carry on activity. It has no qualities whatever. No powers, no potentiality, and tangibility in any way.

As the English mathematician, astronomer, and natural philosopher Isaac Newton (1642-1727) discovered, “Every particle of matter in the universe attracts every other particle with a force that is directly proportional to the product of the masses of the particles and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.”2

This discovery is called the law of universal gravitation. Along with the law of the universal function of matter and void, this law provides scientists with an understanding of how all the matter in the universe is produced by the gravitational interaction of atoms. Without this interaction, there would be no objects besides the individual free-flying atoms in the universe. This includes the thoms, which are mistakenly named “atoms” in modern physics and chemistry.

It’s important to realize that in postmodern physics, the Atomic theory’s explanation of the eternality of the atoms and their fundamental property of gravity explains the origin of the sub-thomic particles (or molecules) –the protons, neutrons, electrons, and quarks. This is something that the two modern theories that govern modern physics and chemistry cannot do: Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity and Max Planck’s quanta theory.

Be aware that only the original and true Atomic theory of matter provides us with knowledge of the eternality of the atoms and the law of the universal functions of matter and the void.
