The Glass Transition (a free volume view)
    There is movement.
    Thus: The world is not full.
    There is empty space.
    The nothing, the void, does exist.
    Thus: The world consists of the existing,
    the hard and full, and the void:
    Of ‘atoms and the void’
-Democritus ca. 400 BC (trans. Karl Popper)
