"Stones may be broken into even smaller stones but they cannot be broken into no stones. They may be broken into gravel and gravel into dust, and the dust separated into crystals that are too small to be seen except through lensed microscopes, or further broken apart into atoms which can only be seen through electromagnetic field microscopes, - but they cannot be broken into nothingnesses - only into somethings, and somethings are always systems."
