9 . Treatment Disease Using atomic theory : Around 440 B.C.

Empedocles suggested that there were four elements: Water, Earth, Air, and Fire. It seemed logical because when things caught fire, moisture is released, air can be felt coming up from it, and the ashes show the earth that it contained. Classifying all matter as only being made of four elements certainly simplified our view of the world. Around 400 B.C. another Greek philosopher, Democritus, agreed there were four elements but he proposed that there was a limit to how small an element could be divided. For example, he said matter may look smooth and solid, but if we could see it very, very close, then we would see that it's made of pieces. An analogy is a beach looks smooth from a distance, but up close we know it's made up of grains of sand. Again, he proposed that elements were composed of very small pieces that could no not be divided any further. He called these pieces Atoms after the Greek word for Indivisible.

Mysticism -is the pursuit of communion with, identity with, or conscious awareness of an ultimate reality, divinity, spiritual truth, or God through direct experience, intuition, instinct or insight. Mysticism usually centers on practices intended to nurture those experiences. Mysticism may be dualistic, maintaining a distinction between the self and the divine, or may be nondualistic.

the study of celestial bodies interpreted as affecting personality, human affairs, and natural events.The primary astrological bodies are the Sun, Moon, and planets, which are analyzed by their aspects (relative positions to one another), by their placement in 'houses' (spatial divisions of the sky), and their movement through signs of the zodiac (spatial divisions of the ecliptic). ‘Astrology’s origins trace to the third millennium BCE. Ancient civilizations developed it as a calendrical system to predict seasonal shifts and to interpret celestial cycles as ‘signs’ of ‘divine communications’. Historically it was a learned tradition, sustained in courts, cultural centers and universities, and was closely related to the studies of astronomy, alchemy, meteorology, and medicine. Yet despite their closely connected histories, astrology and astronomy separated at the end of the 17th century, when astronomy redefined many of the theoretical concepts that the two disciplines had previously shared. Subsequently, astrology suffered a decline in academic and theoretical credibility. The 20th century brought renewed attention, partly through the popularizing effect of newspaper horoscopes and New Age philosophies, and through re-kindled
